Your Trip

What to know

This is a moderate walk which is suitable for those who have some experience with hiking/walking and those with a good general physical condition. You should be able to walk for up to 5 hours a day in hot sun and on dusty or stony tracks.

This is a self-guided walking tour and does not include the services of a tour guide and you will not be part of a group.

Departure dates
This trip operates daily from 01 March until 31 October.
Due to the heat and crowds, we recommend you avoid booking this trip in the month of August.

Route notes
At the joining hotel on Day 1 you will receive your detailed route notes which includes a technical description of the itinerary, maps and 24-hour emergency phone number, as well as useful information on each place visited.

What's Included

Transport

Non-included Meals

Some meals are included on your trip (except for North America trips - please refer to your day-to-day itinerary). However, sometimes we think you'll benefit from getting out and discovering the local cuisine. So when a meal is not included, it's a great opportunity to try something new. For group trips, ask your leader for tips on where to get the best meal, or you might decide to dine out as a group and experience the fun together.

Not Included


What to know

Fitness

Sections of this walk involve somewhat steep 'ups and 'downs' across varied terrain. The walking paths range from paved man-made tracks to forest and coastal trails. There are also some long staircases so if you are at all unsteady on your feet we highly recommend you also bring a retractable walking pole(s). These are lightweight, easy to pack and can be found in most outdoor equipment shops. Comfortable walking/hiking shoes are essential, along with a small daypack and water bottle.

Vaccinations

Vaccinations may be required for this trip. Please talk to your doctor about the up-to-date information for this region.  We're travel experts, not doctors and defer to the medicos when it comes to inoculations.

Visas and Permits

Please ensure that you have all required visas for your trip – this is your responsibility. Rules and regulations governing the issuance of visas are constantly changing, and vary for different nationalities and you should check visa requirements with your travel agent or relevant consular authority well before travel.

Italy
Visas are currently not required for Australian, New Zealand, US, Canadian or UK/EU passport holders wishing to visit Italy. Some EU nationals may travel in Europe using only an identity card, however it is your responsibility to check with the relevant authorities if this applies to you.

Insurance

You are required to have travel insurance before heading off on a Peregrine trip. Insurance can be organised by your Peregrine representative or your travel agent.
