Exploring the best hikes
is one of the most fascinating territories in the world, and most likely one of the most culturally and landscape richest places
It ranks fifth in the list of the most touristic places in the world.
Italy is historically the cradle of some of the greatest and most famous characters in the history of the world.
From Michelangelo, Raphael, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio, Puccini, Brunelleschi and Dante, this incredible country has given birth to artistic, scientific, architectural creations and much more, which still today are a symbol of prestige throughout the world.
Without obviously forgetting the incredible culinary variety.
It is extremely important to know that Italy only unified 150 years ago. Before the unification the present Italian territory was a conglomeration of small duchies and kingdoms independent from every point of view. Entirely different traditions, languages, dialects and customs. What is most appreciated in the world today is the richness of its culture in its beautiful variety of shades.

Hiking equipment is the equipment taken on outdoor walking trips. Hiking is usually divided into day-hikes and multiple-day hikes, called backpacking, trekking, and walking tours.
The equipment selected varies according to the duration, distance, planned activities, and the environment. Additional factors include weight and preparedness for unplanned events. The level of preparedness can relate to remoteness and potential hazards; for example, a short day hike across farmland or trekking in the Himalayas. The length and duration of a walk can influence the amount of weight carried.
The nature of a hike is both by the natural environment and the applicable government regulations and hikers plan accordingly when considering equipment.
To minimize the impact on the natural environment, many hikers follow the principles of "Leave No Trace".
