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.

This was a great trekking experience with plenty of good advice available from the Exodus team beforehand in terms of preparation and what to expect. We started in the second week of the trekking season and so encountered a good deal of snow, which for us was a first in terms of trekking. We also had two fairly short ‘river’ crossings, which we had to negotiate and again a first for us. Our group leader was an extremely experienced mountain guide who made a great deal of effort to keep the group focussed on the trail ahead especially when it mattered. Amazing views at the tops of climbs and probably not a good trek for those with a fear of heights!

Michael KNOWLES Tour du Mont Blanc Hotel Trek

The walking in the Dolomites exceeded my expectations. The scenery was spectacular & the walks a good Level 3. However the hotel and food were less than expected for 4 star premium experience and really let the overall experience down.
As a solo traveller I was once again relegated to the back of the hotel in a room that, although a decent size, was very much in need of refurbishment. The tiny handkerchief size curtains on the windows afforded no privacy as my room looked straight out into the windows of the house behind. There were 2 single beds but luckily I found out that they could be made up into a double if requested, which basically meant pushing them together.
As another reviewer has said, the food was really poor and I can honestly say I didn’t enjoy any of the evening meals. The food that was delivered to the vegans & vegetarians was absolutely shameful.

Denise Mills Classic Dolomites – Premium Adventure

A challenging, but ultimately rewarding trek with awe inspiring views of an amazing and stunningly beautiful mountain landscapes. A real test of fitness on most days. An ability to adapt to testing conditions on each day’s walk and while camping (during heavy thunderstorms at times) definitely needed. However once we had finished, the sense of achievement was just so satisfying. A memorable trip we will never forget.
