Walking the Italian Lakes

This guidebook describes 50 day walks in the picturesque Lakes region of northern Italy. The routes range from 2 to 14km in length, so there is something for everyone, from easy leisurely strolls for first-time walkers to strenuous climbs up panoramic peaks.

The magnificent northern Italian lakes need little introduction to travellers, blessed as they are with the Alps as their backdrop. Lakes Garda, Maggiore, Como and Iseo are hugely popular with English-speaking holidaymakers, thanks to their spectacular settings and surrounding wealth of elegant villas and gardens.

All routes are illustrated with clear maps and inspirational photographs, with full information provided about accommodation and public transport options around each of the four lakes, making this guidebook an ideal companion for exploring the exceptional scenery, views and culture of the Italian Lakes.
