Here's what people are saying about our hiking adventures:
“Unpack only once, settle into a charming small town locale and get ready for an ascending and descending experience that defies description! Add picture postcard vistas, the best of Italy on a plate and you’ve got Road Scholar’s Cinque Terre challenging hiking in a nutshell. Andiamo!”
“This program was an absolute marvel filled with experiences that have created memories that will last forever. The sights, the wines, the food, & the knowledge gained were all outstanding.”
There are few places on Earth where the marriage of land and sea is more poetic than the Cinque Terre — the “Five Towns” along the Italian Riviera. Here, fishing villages cling to the hillsides above hidden coves, medieval fortresses still stand guard, vineyards and olive trees thrive in the Mediterranean sun, and dramatic cliffs plunge to the sea below. Connecting each of the five towns are centuries-old foot paths that offer intimate views of the sea-swept landscape. Join us on glorious walks amid the beautiful ruins and rugged hillsides of the Cinque Terre. For people who love to hike and experience local culture up close, there is no place better.
