Length: 6.0 mi • Est. 3 h 28 m
The Tre Cime di Lavaredo (English: Three Peaks of Lavaredo; German: Drei Zinnen) are three distinctly rocky peaks that tower into the sky in the Sexten Dolomites of Italy. This mountain group is widely known and so the best time to visit is during the off season, either in the fall when the region calms down after a busy summer, or in spring/early summer when wildflowers are in bloom and the crowds of eager hikers have not yet arrived. The iconic jagged peaks are composed of layered limestone. The surrounding area features high alpine meadows, sweeping landscapes, dotted lakes, and well-marked pathways. In east to west order, the peak names are: Cima Piccola (English: Little Peak; German: Kleine Zinne) Cima Grande (English: Big Peak; German: Große Zinne) Cima Ovest (English: Western Peak; German: Westliche Zinne). This route begins at Rifugio Auronzo and heads north to Rifugio Lavaredo and finally Rifugio Locatelli, circling back around and forming a loop that passes Col Forcellina on the way back. You can drive a car there (with a fee to park) or catch a bus from nearby Cortina d’Ampezzo or Dobbiaco. Don’t forget water, but also know you can stop for a drink or a bite to eat at any of the rifugios along the way.Show more

Length: 5.0 mi • Est. 2 h 39 m
This route is an extension of the most famous excursion of the Amalfi Coast - The Path of the Gods - to Positano. The excursion offers breathtaking views of the coastal towns and the natural beauty of the Italian coast as you walk from the cliffs down to sea level. The starting point is in Bomerano, and can be reached by local bus 5020 towards Agerola / Bomerano departing from the main bus station near the Almalfi beach. This excursion can also be done as a day trip from Naples using public transport. The hike is rocky and ends with many stairs up to Positano. You can also follow the signs to get off earlier and you will find yourself in Arienzo instead. From here, it's a short walk down the road to Positano or you can also take the bus back to Amalfi. If, on the other hand, you start the reverse route from Positano to Bomerano, get ready for a more challenging uphill hike.

The High Path of the Dolomites The High Path of the Dolomites number 1 goes from Lake Braies to Belluno.

This is the most difficult variant of this route and especially in the last section maximum safety is required. This beautiful trail will take you into the legendary landscape of the Northern Italian Alps to admire incredible landscapes all along the way. The Dolomites are a mountain range with 18 peaks that rise over 3,000 meters. It features some of the most stunning mountain landscapes in the world with sheer cliffs, narrow, deep and long valleys and steep vertical walls. Several hikers describe it as their all time favorite excursion. Possibility of overnight stay in comfortable local refuges.

Take a half day or a full day to stroll around Lake Braies, probably the most beautiful lake in Italy. Its blue-green color and gorgeous backdrop are breathtaking. The hike itself is fairly easy, with a wide shattered rock path and some stairs. There are picnic tables and benches around the lake if you want to have lunch there, or just want to sit and take in the view. For even better views, you can even rent a wooden rowboat and paddle on the lake. There is a lot to explore in this area and you will have plenty of time to do it as this trail is centrally located in the Braies Dolomites and only takes about an hour to complete.Show more

On this hike you will enjoy the most spectacular views of the Ligurian Sea, the towns of Manarola and Corniglia and of the ancient terraced vineyards that surround them. Parts of the trail are challenging and the steps are steep and narrow at points. You may have to wait for other hikers coming in the opposite direction on ledges. A tip: start in Corniglia and go to Manarola if you prefer to travel downhill more then uphill. The descent into Manarola is quite long.Show more

This is a fantastic hiking trail with breathtaking views of the Ligurian Sea through terraces of grape vines, scenic and colorful towns, churches and ancient towers. All along the route you can enjoy amazing food and taste delicious wine. This trail connects the five most well-known coastal towns of Cinque Terre, plus an extension to Portovenere as well. You can make it a one day trip or break it up into several days and stop and explore all the towns along the way and even take a boat trip to see the Cinque Terre from afar. It's a great hike to do with kids as well with plenty of opportunities to reward them with gelato! This is a fairly trafficked trail that is easier done going south to north. Hikers recommend going early for less crowds and lower temperatures. If you are too tired to hike back, you can take the train. A Cinque Terre card is required to use this trail. Portions of the trail are sometimes temporarily closed due to bad weather but you can always take the train between villages where the trail is closed. Show more
