At Hooked on Cycling, we are very proud of the varied nature of the biking vacations in Italy. These range from Cycle Resorts, fixed location hotels which specialise in supporting our cycle tours, to full moving on tours in some of the most beautiful and historic Italian regions. These tours are available as self-guided trips and also guided bike tours. Our cycle tours cover many regions from Sicily, Sardinia, Tuscany, Venice, Lombardy, Piemonte, Lake Garda, Chianti, Dolomites, Umbria, Apulia, Romagna and Marche. Indeed, we think we have the most varied range of cycling holidays available by any tour operator in Italy. Italy is also our number one destination for cycling holidays.
Hooked on Walking designs and organises walking tours at popular destinations all over Europe, and our tours in Italy are certainly perennial favourites. Walking holidays in Italy lead through mountains, fertile valleys and stunning stretches of the Mediterranean coast—revealing the country’s fascinating historical and cultural heritage along the way.
Italy has made so many grand contributions to the world. This is the epicentre of the Roman Empire; the birthplace of the Renaissance; and a purveyor of one of the world’s most celebrated cuisines. With so much to see and appreciate, it can be tempting to try and do too much in the course of holidays in Italy.
This is why seeing the country on foot can make such a difference. By selecting one of our walking tours and focusing on a specific region, you’ll experience Italy according to a more natural rhythm. In our fast-paced world, slow-touring is as much about experiencing the destination as it is about reconnecting with yourself.
Our Italy walking holidays are based in the following regions:
We’ve already mentioned the beautiful scenery and historic ruins that cyclists and walkers can enjoy while exploring Italy—but that’s only part of the adventure. The Italian countryside is also famous for its incredible cuisine. Nothing works up an appetite like rambling or biking through the Italian countryside.
Each of the self-guided tours listed on this page have their particular charm and allure. We’ve painstakingly crafted each to ensure that it brings our clients into contact with as much of the local culture as possible. In Italy’s case, that certainly requires tasting the local food.
A few tours stand out in culinary terms. For example, the Chestnut and Wine Route package crosses through the South Tyrolean wine region, where wineries offering tastings and tours abound.
Likewise, true foodies will be thrilled by the Barolo Wine Trails package. Walkers pass through fertile lands that produce world-famous truffles along with some of the country’s finest wines. You’ll also find delectable cheeses, preserved meats, chocolates and refined pastries. Our trips in Romagna, a region world-renowned for its cuisine offers many delights to meet your desires.
