Whichever region you choose for your non-group,self-guided Italian walking holiday, we provide our meticulously compiled route notes, maps and luggage transfers, so that you can walk from one invitinghotel to the next at a pace that suits you.
One advantage of choosing an Inntravel walking holiday in Italy is the opportunity to see an area up close. Ours are Slow holidays, and so our diligently planned routes (explained in easy-to-read notes) are short enough that you don’t have to rush. And because you have no group and no luggage (we take care of that), you can ad-lib, making impromptu stops at vineyards, churches and viewpoints, all of which makes for a memorable Italian walking holiday.
Our selection of Italian walking holidays not only includes routes in Tuscany, the Lakes, Sicily, southern Italy, Liguria and the Italian Alps, but also in Piedmont, a corner of northern Italy whose wines are well known but whose medieval villages remain off the tourist map; and the Apennines, the chain of rugged, wooded mountains forming Italy’s spine.
To give you a good idea of how we can tailor our trips to your individual requirements, take a look at the section of the website specifically devoted to travellers from outside the UK.
Alternatively, if you’d prefer to get the low-down on Inntravel holidays from someone who has first-hand experience, you can email Phil Wise. Based in California, Phil has taken many trips with us over the years, and will be happy to give you general information about travelling to Europe and the overall Inntravel holiday experience from an American perspective.

What to expect from your Italian walking holiday
There are three elements which constitute the cornerstones of all Inntravel holidays, including our Italian walking holidays: enchanting landscapes; charming accommodation hand-picked for its friendly welcome; and delectable local cuisine.
Informative route notes
With an Inntravel route guide in your pocket you can be assured of choosing the right path and not missing the interesting sights along the way. Providing clear, current and comprehensive information, our route notes allow you to set your own walking pace, explore the unique features of the region, and take in local culture at your leisure.
Holidays tailored for you
Because you explore independently on an Inntravel holiday, you can personalise the arrangements. Pick a holiday, then decide when to start, how long to stay (you can add extra nights) and how to get there. Then we take care of the details – from train, ferry or flight bookings to hotel and taxi reservations.
We’ve built up a wealth of experience since we started in 1984. Whether you’ve got a query or wish to book a holiday, you’ll deal with friendly experts who share a passion for travel and who have stayed in our featured hotels and walked our routes. They’ll be delighted to answer your questions and help you plan your perfect holiday.
