Useful information about your hiking tour in Italy

The climate in Italy

The climate in Italy is as varied as the country itself. In South Tyrol, hikers can expect a mild mountain climate. And as you’d expect in the Alps, the winters in the Italian Alps are also very cold and austere. The climate is a bit milder if you head a little south, i.e. towards Lake Garda. A bit more south, so in Piedmont and Liguria, there is already a Mediterranean climate. In southern Italy, very hot temperatures can be expected in summer.

Cuisine in Italy

Pizza, pasta, risotto, carpaccio…should I continue? We are very grateful to the Italian cuisine. So we say a huge ‘Grazie’! Almost every region has a variety of dishes that are world famous. Therefore, don’t expect to lose weight on your hiking tour! The temptation is just too strong. A traditional Törggelen in South Tyrol, a hearty Merende with tasty bacon in the Italian Alps, a wonderful plate of freshly caught fish from Lake Garda, a heavenly risotto with fresh truffle in Piedmont and typical Sardinian pasta in southern Italy. Look forward to the countless dishes you want to try!

Italian culinary delights

La Pizza Napoletana

Probably the most famous dish in the world – the pizza – has its origins in Italy, more precisely in Naples. We know the inventor of the Pizza Margherita, as we know it today, was a certain Signor Raffaele Esposito, who worked for the Brandi restaurant in Naples. He was told to serve King Umberto I and his wife Margherita a dish. The rest is history. The most famous pizza in the world, named after the king’s wife, consists of three toppings: red tomatoes, white mozzarella and green basil – the national colours of Italy.
