Seeing a country on foot can be an excellent way of taking in everything that it has to offer, from verdant hillsides to sweeping valleys. (Featured image by Ggia)
Ramblers Worldwide Holidays is offering travellers the chance to do just this, with a series of guided walking adventures this Easter in locations ranging from Italy to Montenegro.
All holidays include return flights, transfers, half-board accommodation and the services of a dedicated tour specialist.
Here is a selection of what is on offer:
Etruscan Highlands, Italy
Departing on March 26, holidaymakers can enjoy a one-week holiday from the “Adagio” programme, which means “in slow tempo” and is ideal for those who want to take things at a leisurely pace.
The tour is focused on ambling, rather than rambling, and begins with a flight to Rome, where visitors will be transferred to the Hotel Nibbio in the walled city of Viterbo.
The tour is priced from £955 per person and highlights include the stunning village of Bomarzo with its 16th Century “Garden of Monsters”, the ancient abbey of La Quercia and a bus journey through the Tuscan countryside to the impressive Bagnaia Gardens.

Starting from £845 per person, this one-week holiday takes a sweeping tour of the Italian island’s historical gems. This includes the ancient Syracuse – home to Archimedes, Plato and the Alcantara Gorges.
Flights depart on March 30 and the tour is priced from £845 per person.
Bay of Kotor, Montenegro
Priced from £910 per person, this one-week walking holiday – departing on March 28 – explores the hill country of southern Europe’s fjordland. Kotor Bay is southern Europe’s deepest fjord and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Visitors will be impressed by the array of flora and fauna on offer, as well as the area’s beautiful stretches of coastline.
