A pilgrimage walk is the best way to see the real Italy
The first time I was in Italy it was on a bus full of tourists. We were bused to notable sites, ate at large restaurants that can accommodate busloads of tourists like us, and then spent our overnights at corporate-style hotels alongside the freeway, a long way from the quaint streets of the ancient towns we visited. Years later, first in Spain and then in Italy, I discovered the practice of pilgrimage walking. I’ll never again pretend I can see a country from a bus window. The only way to really see a country is to really see it! See the entire newsletter…..

Fulfilling the dream of high-quality, accompanied pilgrimage walks in Italy
My goal in creating Pilgrim Paths is to provide great walking pilgrimage experiences for people who might not otherwise take a pilgrimage trek. Planning a long walk in a foreign country can feel daunting. By launching Pilgrim Paths and its 2017 menu of great Italian pilgrim itineraries, my goal is to take the hassle and worry out of walking treks so you can focus on the fabulous experience of exercise, learning and relaxation on a stunningly beautiful and deeply meaningful Italian pilgrimage. See the entire newsletter….
