Hiking in Southern Italy

Mediterranean hiking paradise - Central and Southern Italy
Picturesque costal views in Sardinia

Walking holiday between mountains and the sea

The names of the regions located between the Padan Plain and Apulia sound just like out of an Italian fairy tale: Amalfi, Cinque Terre, Piedmont, Liguria, Sardinia and Sicily are the headliners with their picturesque locations along the varied Eurohike walking routes. There are seven Eurohike tours running between the North of Italy and the Ionian Sea in Central and Southern Italy. They combine everything that is a must for a sublime hiking holiday: finest hiking bliss, glorious panoramas, culture and Mediterranean cuisine.

This is how multifarious Central and Southern Italy presents itself to hikers

With a bit of imagination the typical boot-shaped outline of Italy can change into the contour of a hiking boot. Next to the usual highlights such as the sea, wine and pizza Italy has also discovered hiking as a ‚tourist magnet’ in the last few years. Apart from South Tyrol, which has been a hiking hotspot for a long time now, also Central and Southern Italy have now become ideal regions for easy to moderate hiking holidays.

Particularly exciting is the course of numerous hiking routes in Italy: formerly beaten tracks for mules  are now transformed into the hiking paths of today. Unique views included! If you have only experienced Italy the ‚classic’ way, you will love discovering it on foot. You walk past jagged cliff coasts, distinctive chains of hills and vineyards. They are all views and insights which you only experience afoot.
