Guided Walks in Italy

A great way to connect with a place is on a guided walk or day tour with a local expert. In Italy, we have amazing one day and week-long guided walks and tours to suit every fitness level. You may wonder why we choose to use Italian licensed guides with quirky accents. The simple truth is that you can have the best accommodations and food, but without a local guide, you will miss the insider experience. Our local guides know the people in each small town or village, they know the off-the-beaten-path trails, and they are passionate about the history, geography and culture of their land. We engage North American staff to help with bridging the gap between cultures. But it is our local contacts that really make the difference and will leave you with memories to last a life time.

Our guided walks take you on footpaths that have connected towns for centuries, before paved roads became the norm. Turning a good trip into a great one is no easy feat. We do this by choosing leaders for their knowledge and expertise and of course, for their humor. Our feature image is a special walk to the church in Sicily where the Godfather II was filmed. Our expert guides are leading us to the church where Michael Corlioni was married. We end with a glass of limoncello at the local bar, followed by some grappa for those with a strong stomach.
