Love to get outside while seeing the world? Here are some of the most breathtaking places to soak in nature while on tour in Italy.
Saunter along the Via dell’Amore in Cinque Terre
The Way of Love winds between Riomaggiore and Manarola, two of Cinque Terre’s five villages. Walking along the scenic pathway in this UNESCO-recognized region offers a bird’s-eye-view of the dreamy seaside.
Cruise on Lake Como’s sparkling water
Shining amid an idyllic Alpine landscape is Lake Como, which has something for every personality type. Here, soaring mountain peaks and lush hillside greenery rise dramatically around the sparkling waterway. The best way to soak in the incomparable beauty? On a boat cruise, which will float you by stunning estates and lush gardens that have inspired poets for centuries.
Gaze at natural wonders in Bolzano
Nature lovers, northeastern Italy is calling. Distinctly German and Austrian influences make the region unique, and it’s here in the city of Bolzano that the Dolomites truly shine. The soaring Alpine peaks, sweeping meadows, and picturesque trails of this UNESCO-listed mountain range beckon travelers looking to get off the beaten path on a Walking Tour.
Wander through La Mortella in Ischia
Orchids, geraniums, waterlilies, ferns—admire these beauties and more in La Mortella, a peaceful, private garden next to the Bay of Naples. This stunning oasis sits resplendent on the volcanic island of Ischia, and you can stroll by its colorful array of tropical and Mediterranean plants on the extension for our Amalfi Coast Walking Tour.
Embrace “the sweet art of idleness” in coastal Capri
The Isle of Capri truly is a sparkling gem on the Amalfi Coast. Unmatched sea views set the backdrop for quaint cobbled streets, fragrant wisteria drip from wooden arbors, and lemon trees grow around every corner. Be sure to pick up some homemade limoncello during a visit; the lemon liqueur is synonymous with the Campania region and your expert Tour Director can tell you where to find a good bottle.
