Italy is a country ideally suited for a slower adventure, and a visit here is about more than just the wonderfully walking and cycling routes. Take your time to wander through historical lanes stopping off in family-run shops that have been there for generations, taste olive oil fresh off the press, or pop in to a seafront cafe for a refreshing pistachio gelato. There is so much to discover on every journey.
Each region has its own character with a different landscape, culture, and locally grown specialties, and our slower adventures cover all the best known areas, so there are plenty of options to choose from.
For those looking to explore undulating coastal trails and mountain paths, Walking Portofino and the Cinque Terre, is an ideal choice. This dramatic seaside landscape never disappoints, and the local trains make it simple to adjust your holiday pace to one of your choosing. Trails of Tuscany & Umbria is the perfect tour for those looking to enjoy easy-going walks, tick off two iconic regions in one swoop, and sample mouth-watering cuisine, and outstanding red wine along the way. If you're short on time then why not go on our Paestum and the Cilento Coast Short Break. This lesser known region is a stones throw from the famous Amalfi Coast affording it the same great weather, azure waters, and splendid cheese and wine, but with a fraction of the crowds. It gives you a sample of everything the region has to offer including the world-famous ancient Doric temples at Paestum and stepping into Greek mythology on the 'Path of the Sirens'.
Where active walks meet easy-going exploring, our slower adventures are the perfect combination. Some days will be filled with exciting scenic walks, and others will have some free time for you to dive into the destination and experience the people, local food and culture.
