Love Firenze for its views, arts, historical architecture, street vendors and yummy foods and wine.

Beautiful Cathedral, spectacular view of Milan from Roof Top, and many places to see in Milan.

Great walk with beautiful Cathedral, historical buildings.

We started from Monterosso to Riomaggiore, a short section was closed when we hiked back in 2015. Beautiful hike through terrace of grape vines, scenic and colorful towns, churches, ancient towers. Great foods, yummy wines, and awesome experience. After completed the hike, the next day, we took boat trip from La Spezia to Monterosso, so we could see Cinque Terre from a far, spectacular views, well worth it.

Great walk around Rome.

Great walking around Rome, monuments, churches, castles, Vatican City, Spanish Steps, Villa Borghese, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Roman Forum, Pantheon, and many many places. Great drinking water from fountains all over town, amazing ruin of Roman Aqueduct at Lucio Sestio, metro line A.

Sections of the trail were closed when I hiked here in March 2016, so I only walked from Monterosso to Vernazza. I loved every bit of it. The colors of the water, the vineyards and terraced gardens, the boats, the sunny harbor and dark, narrow canyons of the village paths...

Beautiful view of Naples and the volcano.

app ben fatta peccato la lingua inglese

molto bello per una prima uscita dopo la pausa invernale o per le prime volte per fare trail

Didn't go through the whole trail. It was late March, we started at Pai di Sotto. Walked only for a couple of miles up. The pavement was great, probably there from Roman empire times

I did this trail completely by accident April 2017 and never recorded. An annual voluntary event at Lake Garda is the 40 mile (65 KM) / 12 hour COL Darby Challenge.

The COL Darby challenge started in the city of Peschiera del Garda and goes through the cities of Mattarana, Lazise, Pai, Malcesine, and ended in Torbole.

The Uploaded pictures are along the city of Malcesine but the entire 40 mile route on the eastern side of Garda looks similarly amazing.

In a nutshell, this trail was absolutely remarkable. During my 40 mile hike, I stopped in Malcesine to get a beer and something to eat… I wish I remembered the name of the bar because it was awesome.

If you wish to do this 18 mile hike, definitely do it because it’s gorgeous. But I recommend doing the entire hike along Lake Garda… It is the best and took me less than 11 hours with several beer stops… It was pretty much a 40 mile long pub crawl! Just don’t get drunk and you should be fine!

This is a fun walk but make sure you do it like my wife and I: 1. Don’t plan the trip, just get up and go from Napoli. 2. Take a taxi but don’t bring enough money because you have to pay double when you leave Napoli in a taxi... so 3. Spot a trail head and get out half way up the road to where most others hike from. 4. Find the trails are all closed on the way up due to last summer’s fire. 5. Proceed to walk all the way up the road and use €20 of our last €25 for tickets to access the crater. 6. Hike up to the crater and talk about how cold it is and what a long walk back to town you have with no money. 7. Spend our last €5 on limoncello shots. 8. Talk a taxi into leaving his customers to drive you down quickly before coming back to get them.

It was a shame that all of the trails through the nature reserve leading up/down the mountain were locked up. Also, the access to do the full crater loop was closed off so that was a bummer.

All things considered, we had a great day together and great memories to kick off our honeymoon! If in the area, it is definitely worth going.

Easy walking, flat surface, stroller friendly!

Bellissimo trail! Dalla cima si gode di una visuale ampissima sul mare e sul resto delle apuane

If you're looking for a great view, you won't find a better one around! This hike is truly spectacular. We started the trail in Praiano, where you walk up approximately 5 million steps to get to the actual path. We had almost reached the top when we got caught in a storm -- thunder, rain and hale! Luckily we happened to be right next to a cave/ overhang so we hit out there until it eased up a bit, then we ran up the last flight of steps to the monastery. Once up there, we were offered espresso and water and got to pet these 2 sweet pups who lived on / near the monastery property. Luna and Lilly! Aside from the views, that might've been the highlight of my day. Haha. So -- after the rain stopped and we dried out a bit, we continued up the mountain to the trail. This is the one part of the hike from Praiano that gets tricky. Others have said the trail of the gods is easy and you could do it in sandals, but this part is rocky and pretty treacherous unless you're really fit. I would recommend hiking shoes if you're joining up on the trail from Praiano, because while it's not necessary for the rest of the hike, it is helpful if it's slick outside for these rocky bits near the monastery. Don't get me wrong, it's not really hard, but it can be a little scary if you're not used to being at the edge of a cliff.

Ran on the Greenway path two mornings in a row from our Air bnb in Ossuccio on Lake Como. The path is fantastic and well marked by signs in many places. Most of the path is flat along the lake shore but part of it goes up above the lake into the foothill neighborhoods by a big church and then back down to the lake shore. Beautiful views the whole way, lots of birds, and you pass through one cool small village after another on the lake from start to finish. Wubba lubba dub dub!

Short walk from the stunning views at the top of the Pigra cablecar is the Belvedere lookout. Easy walk through town then through some woods to a bench and picnic table at the lookout.

Walked up to the walled city from our air bnb and headed through the historic downtown from south to north then took a country road outside of town to the hilly countryside gravel road walking alongside farms, wineries, and agriturismos with amazing views of the San Gimignano city and towers in the distance. Took the loop around meeting up right back at the south end of the historic area. Classic ancient Italian town with open squares and narrow alleyways among the towers and churches surrounded by bucolic Tuscan countryside all around. Wubba lubba dub dub!!

Hiked up to Castle Vezio from the main square of Varenna where the ferry docks. Short but steep walk up starting among the restaurants downtown up past some residences up the hill and further up next to some woods until you reach the top of the hill where the castle is. Tickets are 4 euro per person and you can walk around the whole castle which isn't huge but the views are spectacular looking south at Bellagio and the split of lake Como. Amazing views of the lake and surrounding mountains. Very cool spot and did the whole journey from the ferry up and back down in less than an hour to catch the boat back to our next destination.

Must do! a beautiful hike! I would HIGHLY recommending stopping once you hit the highway. Everything after that is not very scenic, long and a lot stairs. We did the whole trail and got lost for a portion of it. You will have to cross the highway and walked through the woods unmarked.

Beautiful and busy walking the touristy downtown area of Florence (Firenze)! The river is fantastic with all the bridge crossings, the duomo is epic up close and far off and the best view of the city comes from walking up to Piazzale Michaelangelo at sunset with music and drinks to be had with the best panoramic view of Florence.

Amazing hike!!! Breathtaking views along the way! Would definitely do it all over again if in the area. Did this hike as a part of group tour and with a guide and so glad I did it this way as not sure if I’d be able to find it on my own...trails here are not marked very well...if in Amalfi coast take the time to do this hike. It’s so worth it!!

Super nice hike. Definitely worth exploring!
