Out of our small group walking tours Italy is especially popular. Odyssey Traveller’s Via di Francesco (or the Way of St. Francis) small group walking tour links together Italian places directly associated with the life and sacred travels of St. Francis of Assisi. We explore the stunning landscapes of rolling hills, beautiful woods, and olive groves, and dive into Italian culture on walking trails traversing from Florence in Northern Italy through Central Italy to Rome – an ideal end transit point for those who then want to continue on to Sardinia, Southern Italy, Puglia, the Amalfi coast, Sicily, or beyond. Important stops are also made in Assisi, the birth place of St Francis, to visit sites such as the Basilica di San Francesco d’Assisi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000 and where the saint’s remains are interred.

Meanwhile our Via Francigena Switzerland and Italy tour takes us along the cultural route from Geneva driving through the Great St Bernard Pass, the third highest road pass in Switzerland which connects it with the Aosta Valley in Italy. This will be a beautiful hour-long drive with views of the snow-covered Alps. Our walks will then commence in Italy, primarily through the beautiful region of Tuscany and neighbouring Umbria through several Italian towns, until we reach Rome, the Eternal City, where we visit the Vatican museum, the Sistine Chapel, the Colosseum and other key attractions of Ancient Rome.

In addition to Italy walking holidays, our other fascinating guided walks explore the UNESCO heritage listed sites of Central Spain, the extensive historical and cultural sites of Berlin, the rural scenery of Britain, the rugged coastline and spectacular wilderness of Flinders Island in Australia, and more! A guided walking tour makes a perfect trip for mature and senior travellers with an age relevant good level of fitness attained.
