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, Naples and Campania and the Gardens of Tuscany and Piedmont 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, the Dolomites, Puglia and even Provence and the Sierra Nevada in Spain.
Given the difficulties with international travel at the moment, we have developed some Australian-based ‘gourmet getaways’: excellent accommodation, great walks, fine food and wine, good company, all with an Italian twist. The Wollombi Hunter Valley Winter Escape is ready to go (5/7 to 11/7/20): click here for details. Other tours to come shortly: King Valley/Victorian High Country Escape (one week) as well as a fully supported one-week self-guided walk following the Bondi to Manly trail, an urban walk that rivals the Cinque Terre as ‘one of the most spectacular in the world’.
