Walking and gastronomy are the perfect partners and make for an ideal combination for a memorable and active holiday. We can look forward to exploring the local area on four included walks and each evening we can dine in the hotel’s gourmet restaurant “La Prepositura” where we savour 4 courses showcasing the best of Italian cuisine, each accompanied by a different red or white wine, both local and national to ensure we get the true taste of Italy!

After checking into our hotel enjoy a welcome drink of prosecco accompanied by traditional Italian bruschetta with the hotel’s homemade Extra Virgin Olive Oil where we can get to know our fellow travellers.

Today we can enjoy a guided tour of the beautiful, medieval town of Trevi where we learn more about its long and fascinating history. After, we don our aprons and take part in a 2 hour cooking class where we will learn to make traditional Italian meals, which we can tuck into for our lunch with wine.

Today is our first walk where we begin in Monte Subasio and continue along the beautiful Roman aqueduct of Spello, where we pause for lunch (not included). We continue on through gentle woodland trails to the small village of Pale to finish.

Useful Information

Transfer Time
The transfer time from Rome Fiumicino Airport to the hotel is approximately 2 hours and 5 minutes, depending on weather and traffic.

Walking programme
Four guided walks are included in the programme. Your walking guide will advise you in resort of the daily programme. The walking programme is graded as Easy to Medium and you can expect to walk between 10 to 15km per day, with some ascents/descents and some rough underfoot terrain.

Below are the distances for each walk, however please bear in mind these are approximate and subject to change due to local conditions

  • Pale woodland trekking, 15km
  • Montefalco, 10km
  • Castle at Campello, 10km
  • Truffle hunting, 14km

It is your responsibility to ensure that you are fit and well enough to take part in your chosen activity holiday. If you are unsure as to whether the walks are within your capabilities, please contact the office to discuss this matter, thus making sure you appreciate the terrain that you will be walking.

You could be walking across uneven ground in some areas and extreme care must be taken, especially if wet. If used to using a pole/stick, it is advisable to bring it. Please appreciate the route and content of the holiday may change at the time and at the discretion of the guide/organiser, should conditions require. Solo’s Holidays Ltd cannot be held responsible for personal injury, accident or damage to property whilst on these walks other than incidents arising out of the company’s negligence. The guide has the right to refuse to guide a walk with anyone not properly attired.

What to Wear
It is of paramount importance that you have the correct footwear. It is essential to wear walking boots that are comfortable and preferably lightweight, with some ankle support and a good grip. If you already have a pair of boots that you are happy walking in (including during hot/wet weather and on hard ground), then bring these along. However, if you are bringing new footwear, do make sure they are well broken in before you arrive. Experience has shown that wearing 2 pairs of woollen socks adds to comfort.

  • The weather, even in summer, is unpredictable – particularly in mountainous areas. We would therefore recommend you travel with clothing suitable for all conditions, and suggest you use the following checklist as a guideline of what to take:
  • Walking boots with good ankle support
  • Waterproofs – jacket and trousers
  • Walking poles – recommended as they provide good support for the knees, particularly on downhill sections of walks and when conditions are wet/slippery
  • Lightweight trousers and shorts with pockets
  • Shirts or t-shirts for walking in
  • Walking socks – several pairs
  • Lightweight fleece or jumper
  • Hat & gloves
  • Daysack/rucksack for walking
  • Umbrella – it can be used also for protection from the sun as well as rain
  • Lightweight drinking bottle to carry water whilst walking
  • Small first aid kit – plasters, insect repellant, etc
  • Good, high factor sunscreen, sunhat and sunglasses – the sun’s strength is often multiplied in mountainous areas.

More to Explore
You will have 1 free days on the holiday, during which time you may wish to relax, or explore the island further. Your Tour Leader will be on hand to advise/assist you in arranging any additional trips.

Gratuities
We suggest a Group Collection to cover transfer drivers, and hotel staff of €25 per person. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate % add on.
