Walks of Italy Review – What All Walking Tours Should Be

During our exploration of Italy, we were fortunate enough to take several walking tours as guests of Walks of Italy– one of the country's premier tour companies.

We covered five tours, in three cities, featuring an array of topics from the historical, to culinary, and even a bit religious at the Vatican Museums.

In the end we walked away with a fond appreciation for all things Italy (far more than I had from my first trip to the country), and over the years have realized that Walks of Italy puts out what we believe are the best walking tours we've ever experienced.

In this Walks of Italy review we wanted to highlight our favorite aspects of each of the tours we took to give you a better insight as to why we think that!

Disclaimer: We were given complimentary tours with Walks of Italy when traveling around the country.
