Activities in Italy

Besides all the art galleries, museums, old palazzi and monuments, there’s something in the varied landscape that offers numerous opportunities for skiing snowy slopes, getting beached in languorous luxury at lovely sea shores, and hiking around in fabulous countryside.

The Dolomites have spectacular slopes, scenery and great resorts, making them an ideal destination for a skiing vacation. The season here extends from December to March but if you’d rather be on Mont Blanc, the Matterhorn or the Valle d’Aosta, you could be going there any time of the year.

The Alps, specially the Dolomites, have many trekking trails. You may also go hiking in the Appenines, in the Parco Nazionale d’Abruzzio and around the Sila Massif area in Calabria. The Alpi Apuane in Tuscany and the mountains of Sardinia are other options. Tuscany is also a great area to explore on a (mountain) bike.

If you hit the beaches and aren’t content with just bumming around on them, consider windsurfing and sailing . Most resorts are equipped with gear that they’ll rent out, so you really needn’t be bothered with carrying your own.
