The Pull of Water
our first tours of spring in full swing

Our 2019 season has got off to a great start with our first tour of the year taking us to the gorgeous Italian Lakes.  There is something magical about walking by water and two of our hotels on this trip are situated right on the lake shores, each with private jetties, and we have the chance to explore two of the region's famous islands by boat.  On our second tour, Lucca, Volterra and the island of Elba, we hike to some of the highest points on Elba with fabulous views across the Mediterranean Sea.  Our final hotel has its own private beach so, each night, we can enjoy sunsets over the water in the beautiful Bay of Biodola.  Both tours will run again in 2020 and it is not too early to contact us for bookings, as tours are now starting for fill for next year.

If you still have October in your sights for a walking holiday this year then we have a couple of spots available on The Wilds of Abruzzo - Level 4: 12 - 20 October and
The Jewels of Piedmont - Level 2: 23 - 30 October.  Call us now to book your place!

In this month's news we explore the benefits of walking for both mental and physical health, introduce you to some great Italian chefs and follow the route of Italy's famous Giro d'Italia cycle race.  To join us for some fabulous food, wine and walking check out our dates for 2020 and get in touch now!
