Walking Tours in Italy

FAQs

What are the top walking destinations in Italy?

Italy is blessed with some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and is renowned for its magnificent lakes, mountains and verdant countryside. Its culture and history are equally alluring, with ancient cities such as Rome and Florence stealing the limelight with their architectural wonders.

Our guided walking holidays in Italy steer you among the most picturesque backdrops to uncover the main sights as well as historical routes that take you along the road less travelled. Discover the iconic peaks of the Dolomites and Mont Blanc, explore the medieval hilltop villages of Sicily, or visit the vineyards of Tuscany and sample the world-famous chianti.

Puglia and Matera are particularly charming with their fairytale Trulli houses, hilltop towns and ancient rock churches. Perhaps you prefer to walk along the peninsula of Portofino and experience the romantic Italian sunsets or marvel at the colourful houses of Cinque Terre that nestle into the rocks. Whichever walking holiday in Italy you choose, you’ll be blown away by the country’s natural beauty.

What to expect on a walking tour in Italy?

When it comes to walking holidays, Italy is up there on the list of top destinations. At Exodus, we want you to fall in love with the country, so we introduce you to a rich blend of history, culture and scenery. Whether you go it alone on a self-guided tour or opt for one of our guided walking holidays in Italy, you’re guaranteed an experience of a lifetime.

Whenever possible, we use local leaders who have a wealth of experience and knowledge about each destination. This means you’ll gain an unrivalled insight into the true essence of Italy, from enjoying the best traditional foods and walking unfrequented routes to mingling with the locals, who’ll teach you everything there is to know about the culture. And of course, walking in Italy allows you to explore the most incredible landscapes.

When is the best time to go to Italy?

Each season in Italy has its own unique charms. Although July and August see the warmest temperatures, they are also the busiest months. Winter brings cooler temperatures and rainfall which can be a hindrance especially if you want to go walking in the mountains.

Spring and autumn are the best times to go to Italy as there are fewer crowds and the temperatures are more comfortable, but you’ll still enjoy plenty of sunshine. Italy is especially beautiful during May and June when the landscapes are carpeted with wildflowers but if you want to catch the grape harvest in full swing, then October is the time to go.

How challenging are Exodus's walking tours to Italy?

Each of our walking holidays in Italy are graded based on the level of difficulty and features category specific guidelines to ensure you select the right trip for your level of fitness. Ranging from leisurely to tough+, the gradings take into consideration the length of the walk, route conditions, altitude, weather conditions, level of comfort and the amount of porterage and support available. We recommend you take a close look at these for the trip you’re considering before making your final decision.

Can I travel solo on an Italian walking and trekking trip?

At Exodus we embrace solo travellers with open arms and believe it or not, roughly 50% of our adult travellers choose to go it alone. We will never charge a single supplement for our group tours, and we allow you the option of sharing a room with another traveller of the same gender, or for an additional cost you can have your own room.

When it comes to going solo on a walking holiday, Italy has some fabulous tours to choose from and you’re always guaranteed a small group experience. You’ll find a combination of other like-minded solo travellers, couples or friends and our expert guides will ensure you feel safe throughout your trip.

A very enjoyable week with outstanding sightseeing, hiking, food and wine. We thought the hotel and most of the restaurants were superb.

Andrew Longden Walk The Prosecco Hills & Hidden Venice

A hugely enjoyable immersion in the countryside and towns of Puglia and Basilicata.The itinerary is well-designed, as the highlight for us was undoubtedly Matera, and I was pleasantly surprised at how little down time we had. The walking is undemanding, but the scenery is beautiful, and I can imagine in high summer the heat could become a problem. A great introduction to an area I knew very little about, other than enjoying the excellent wines it produces.

Matthew Smith Walking in Puglia & Matera

This was my first trip with Exodus and it was so good I’m ready to book my next. It all went so smoothly and the activities and people involved were wonderful. It was also my first ever solo travel experience and having other solo travelers in the group was a plus. The rest of my group was also super friendly and welcoming.
