Walking in AbruzzoIn the mountainous region of Abruzzo in southern Italy for example, we can arrange a walking tour with a local guide who will accompany you on a half-day walk in the mountains and hills of the surrounding Abruzzo National Park. You can choose from a range of different itineraries according to the level of difficulty of the walk - for the summer months you could choose to do a 5-hour walk onto Monto Camicia, where you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views over the surrounding alpine countryside and, if you’re lucky, catch sight of golden eagles flying overhead. For something less challenging, you could walk along the plain of the Campo Imperatore and enjoy the rare flora and fauna en route, or perhaps the Castel del Monte itinerary, which takes you to the hilltop medieval villages of Rocca Calascio and Santo Stefano di Sessanio.Prices to include 5 nights at the Hotel Sextantio and one day’s guided walk from £990 per person.Walking in UmbriaWalking in the rural landscapes of river valleys and undulating hills of Umbria we can organise a 2-day itinerary from the delightful Villa di Monte Solare. Starting with a presentation on the first evening, your first full walking day takes you to Lake Trasimeno, following the winding gravel road to Castello dei Montali for a wonderful view of the lake. Descending towards the lake we suggest you visit the natural park of the ‘Oasi la Valle’, an ideal spot for bird-watching. Transfer back to the hotel in the afternoon where you can enjoy the relaxing ambience of this highly recommended hotel.On the second day you walk from the hotel to Panicale, passing the penitential sanctuary of Mongiovino. The walk takes you through olive groves, oak woods and vineyards, with views over Lake Trasimeno, just the same as Il Perugino painted in the background of his works of art. At Panicale you can rest over lunch and drinks at a local restaurant (not included) before continuing to the delightfully restored village of Paciano, from where you will be transferred back to your hotel.Prices to include 5 nights at the Villa di Monte Solare and two day’s walking from £990 per person.
