2023 guided walking trips in Italy. Join us!

Walk About Italy: walking tour specialists

My name is Gianni Stanghellini. I am a Ph.D. geologist. I have been working on Italy guided walking tour business for 22 years. I was born and raised in Siena, a medieval town in Tuscany, Italy. I live and work in Siena still as I have never found a good reason to leave this beautiful place.

Tuscany and much more

We focus on very few areas to provide the best Italy guided walking tour: Tuscany, Amalfi Coast, Sicily, Umbria, Assisi & Le Marche, Cinque Terre. We believe that these 5 areas well represent the Italian beauty. All different from each other. All amazing to visit.

Walk About Italy is a small business that hires only locals

First of all we hire only local guides and drivers. Secondly we go to small family-owned restaurants. Furthermore we visit small farms where you can talk to the farmers. Finally we provide contact with the locals as much as we can.

“The traveler sees what he sees; the tourist sees what he has come to see”. G.K. Chesterton

WALK ABOUT ITALY TOURS

Tuscan Splendors

Amazing medieval towns and stunning surrounding countryside: Siena, Chianti region, San Gimignano, Montalcino, Pienza, Val d’Orcia. You will travel with a small group.

Amalfi Coast Wonders

Walk the paths of the Amalfi Coast including Naples, the Vesuvius and Pompeii, with stunning views and amazing food. You will stay at charming hotels. Walk from village to village between, Amalfi, Vietri, Ravello.

Sicilian Flavors

From the charming islet of Ortigia to the Vendicari natural reserve. From the baroque pearl of Noto to the Byzantine of Pantalica. Then we transfer to the Aeolian Island of Lipari with its stunning panoramas on the archipelagos. 

Umbria, Assisi & Le Marche Marvels

Umbria & Le Marche are really off-the-beaten-path. Although Assisi is well known because of Saint Francis, the area remains very genuine. Food and wines are superb here.
The tour starts in the medieval town of Orvieto, one hour train ride from Rome. Continues to the small towns of Trevi, Montefalco and Bevagna and ends up in the Le Marche green countryside of Urbino, on the Adriatic sea.

CINQUE TERRE off-the-beaten-path experience

ITALIAN ALPS & DOLOMITES: THE EASY WAY!

Have you always dreamt of walking the Italian Alps and the Dolomites but you didn’t feel fit enough for it? We have planned the trip for you. Our hikes are very doable. No big climbs. No fear of heights on our walks. But a lot of fun though.

Reviews

Fun in Tuscany
This was an amazing tour. Walking in Tuscany, every day was different and so enjoyable. The value for money was fantastic even for South Africans with our bad exchange rate. The food and typical Tuscan experiences were so varied and always far better than expected; from wine tasting to cooking classes, to meeting Italian families and eating in their homes and small hotels, the whole experience was so much fun. A holiday I will never forget

I have been to Tuscany several times, visiting the cities and hilltowns. This was a different experience that took us over hill and dale, past vineyards and through oak and chestnut woods. Gianni and his expert team of guides are wonderful companions who led us on 4-7km walks daily (longer if you chose to return walking), generally beginning with a brief visit to one of the hilltowns. Most walks ended at a winery or farm where we sampled the products and enjoyed a wonderful lunch.  Walk About Italy’s tours are very reasonably priced for all that is included. I highly recommend Gianni’s tours!

Along with my mother and two sisters, we joined a group of 11 in total for an amazing walking tour of Amalfi Coast. The organization of this tour was superb, and we learned a lot (especially geology) and had a lot of fun. The food and drink was first class, and the hotels were lovely. Highly recommended.

This was a great walk and our guide Orietta was extremely informative. Scenery was great and visiting the islands of Lipari, Vulcano and Salina was a awesome experience as was swimming in the Mediterranean Sea of the boat on our way there!
