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, 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 and even Provence.
We are pleased to announce a new guided tour in May 2015: the Gardens of Tuscany walking tour. The tour will be lead by my friend art historian, Blue Guides author and long term Tuscan resident Paul Blanchard. Gardens, both famous and hidden, classical and modern, are the true heart of Tuscany and there is no-one better than Paul to unlock the secrets of one of Italy's most beautiful and celebrated regions on our very special two week tour.
