walking in italy
Walking in Italy encompasses spectacular high level routes in the Alps, Dolomites and Appennines, quite rambles through wonderful undulating hills, magnificent coastlines and of course the people and the food.
The "Sentiero Italia" is a project, spearheaded by members of the Italian Alpine Club to create a route running through Sardinia, Sicily and the whole of the main peninsula, traversing the Alps and terminating in Trieste.

Italy, Tuscany ( Toscana)
Report of a five day hiking trail from Florence to Siena, in the heart of Tuscany. In early spring, in tolerable temperatures, the trail passes fortified buildings, old farmsteads, vineyards and olive orchards, through hilly country , woods, mediaeval villages, Romanesque churches, chapels, avenues bordered by old cypress trees.
Great views of Florence in the morning and in the afternoon the River Arno. In St Polo in Chianti the scenery is more open, walking the wide and almost white footpaths, passing farmsteads and fortified buildings: the classic Tuscany image. Castellina ,a little site-step to the Etruscan tombs. At the end: Siena! Height: highest peak on trail: 530m. Read more
Report of a five day hiking trail on the island. Seas of flowers, cactus, cork-oaks. The remains of the former inhabitants, the Nuraghe. The Domus de Janas, between Dolgali and Galteti, the S.Pietro at Galteti. The Porceddu, sucking pigs roasted at the open fire. All the time those magnificent mountain and sea views, the romantic coast, the rough and unspoiled nature. To admire the towering mountain peaks, the bizarre cliff formations, the caves, the unspoiled nature. Walking in Sardinia is “ do it yourself”, a surprise, fences, no trespassing, private property, good-luck! ( “a headache file”). Read more
