Dear Hiker:

Italy is also a country of contrasts. However, hiking is confined to the North along the border Switzerland. Here we find quaint Italian villages with their quintessential cathedrals.

Hiking in Italy is very similar to hiking in the Italian region of Switzerland. In moving from one to the other most of the geography and the customs are similar. There is a little greater interest, I have found, in food in Italy. The menus are very diverse.
