Category: Hiking & Walking Trails in Italy

Simply by putting one foot in front of the other, walking gives an immediate sense of exploring a new place, and the physical activity means you can have more for lunch. I read Italian travel guides and hiking magazines to find out about new areas for walking tours in Italy, and especially enjoy pathways that represent a piece of Italy’s history, like Roman and Etruscan roads, or pilgrim trails and smuggler’s paths. Often I just walk out my front door in Sicily, and go walking for the pure pleasure of it, with no set destination other than resting under a 500-year old olive tree.
