Welcome to Hidden Italy walking tours! We've been organising small walking groups and independent walkers in Italy since 1993: fine food, boutique accommodation, exceptional walking... no-one knows Italy like we do.
Staying in 4-star boutique hotels, our all-inclusive, small group, guided walking tours explore Sicily, Puglia, Sardinia and the Gardens of Tuscany in the spring and Venice and the Italian Lakes, the Italian Alps, Verona and the Dolomites and Friuli and Trieste in autumn. Our self-guided walking tours explore some of the most fascinating parts of Italy: Cinque Terra; Portofino, Tuscany, Umbria, La Tuscia, the Amalfi Coast, Lake Como, Sicily , Piedmont and even Provence.
“My husband Geoff and myself experienced one of the best guided (if not the best) tours of Tuscany. The guide Paul Blanchard was superb: such a fun, informative and caring man, passionate about his subject and fantastic on imparting his knowledge. What an amazing trip we had: the villas, the gardens, the food and the accommodation was all we had hoped it would be. We have done one of your self-guided walks before and this was our first guided one. Thank you and we hope we can one day do another guided walk through your company. With thanks to you and Paul Blanchard.” S and GR, Gardens of Tuscany, May 2015.
