Walk at your own pace from one charming hotel to the next on a non-group,self-guided walking holiday in southern Italy. We transport your luggage, and supply you with our trusted route notes, so that you are free to enjoy the incredible scenery.
From yellow lemons to blue sea and sky, and from pink and terracotta houses to silver-green olive trees rooted in red soil, the colours you encounter on walking holidays in southern Italy fill you with joy. These being Slow holidays, we advocate stopping to drink it all in as often as you like – you’re not part of a group, and have no luggage (we transport it to the next hand-picked hotel), so make the most of it, following our information-packed route notes at your own pace.
What makes our walking holidays in the south of Italy special is that they show you a side to the region that other holidays can’t. If you choose our walking holiday on the Amalfi Coast, you can escape the crowds who come by road to admire Europe’s most dramatic coastline: our routes take quieter paths and mule tracks which have linked villages for centuries. Our walking holiday in Puglia, meanwhile, offers glimpses into the very soul of Italy’s ‘heel’.
