The Bel Paese offers countless walking routes. Be it religious or lay, what each walk has in common is the spirit with which one starts off on the road: the desire to create a connection between oneself and the nature offered by the landscape. Try one of the mountain paths along the Italian Alps, or have a go at the Apennines' Via Francigena that allows walkers to vertically cross the country's boot shape.
Of this road, the Tuscan walk from San Gimignano to Siena is arguably the most beautiful. Here, every sunset can be seen from the hills and, for a moment, everything is painted in gold. On the other hand, if you love the mountains, the Alta Via No. 1's 125 km of winding roads connecting the picturesque Lake Braies to Belluno is for you. The difficulty of this walk is medium-high, but it is certainly worth making the effort.
In both cases, discover a side of Italy that is unknown to the ordinary traveller.
