Hiking and biking in Italy: an interactive map of favorite routes

Although Italy is more famous for its scenery, art, architecture, and food, it’s a fantastic place for hiking and biking. I pulled together a few of my favorite routes in an interactive map. Some were chosen from my days working as a guide hiking and biking in Italy while some are client favorites – routes I include in client itineraries again and again. Some of these routes are half a day or less, easy, and fun for the whole family, but I’ve included a few full-day strenuous hikes that require planning, proper equipment, and a guide. There are so many wonderful hiking and biking routes in Italy that this is really the tip of the iceberg, but I think it’s a good start.

Use the drop-down menu to choose only hiking routes or only biking routes or to view all routes on the map, then click on the map icons to read a short description of the route. Click the link in the description of the route for more detailed information. If you don’t want to organize all this yourself, contact us to help you plan a fabulous active trip to Italy!
