Walking in the DolomitesWalking in the Dolomites (Cicerone Mountain Walking S.) Walk Italy. This guide leads you through breathtaking alpine scenery flanked by well-graded paths and excellent mountain refuges that verge on hotels, which are easily accessible with the excellent network of public transport from major towns and travel hubs, such as Venice, Verona, Munich and Innsbruck. Any one of these fabulous multi-day walks make for a memorable holiday in Italy's breathtaking Dolomite mountains. The author weaves the best of her 20-year experience and knowledge of this spectacular region into an original selection of itineraries on foot across each Dolomite group. Many walks follow mule-tracks constructed by troops during the First World War, when Italy fought Austria for possession of crazy summits and tunnels were hewn through impossible mountain-sides. The highlights are emphasised and the routes are furnished with fascinating explanations of wildlife and flowers. Everything, from a stroll through woods and meadows to family routes, steep rocky zigzag passages and hands-on clambers, is covered. This full colour revised edition has a wealth of inspiring photos, detailed maps, myriad new routes and heaps of practical help on travelling, sleeping and eating.

Walking in SicilyWalking in Sicily: Short and Long Distance Walks (Cicerone International Cycling S.) Walk Italy. Exploring this breathtaking island on foot is a journey through time. Sicily offers wild valleys pitted with Greek and Roman temples and ancient ruins - reminders of long-gone peoples. Mule tracks and age-old pathways have survived and reserve a wealth of surprises, starting with the carpets of brilliant wildflowers. Landscapes are grandiose. Olive groves thrive alongside citrus orchards, never far from snow-clad mountain ranges presided over by imposing volcanoes, ranging from extinct and visitable, through to placidly smoking, and to constantly active giants Etna and Stromboli from which fiery rivers of lava issue. In dramatic contrast is the string of peaceful offshore islands set in turquoise waters, which are pure Mediterranean in character. Sicily's stunning range of scenery, combined with its mild winters and hot dry summers, make rewarding walking holidays feasible all year round. Visits are facilitated by good road access and an excellent network of public transport. Accommodation is plentiful, as are memorable eating places with rich Mediterranean fare.

Via Ferratas of the Italian DolomitesVia Ferratas of the Italian Dolomites: North, Central and East v. 1 (Cicerone Mountain Walking S.) Walk Italy. This guide covers the North, Central and Eastern Dolomites, across an area stretching from Val di Fassa to Auronzo. The guide sets the routes out according to strategic valley bases, with some guidance on the best bases for attacking each of the routes. The authors have had first-hand knowledge of all the routes, and have developed a completely new grading system, which strives to simplify an extremely subjective topic. There are descriptions of routes which appeared in the original Cicerone guide, and some completely new routes have been added. Mountain Ranges covered in Volume 1 include Catinaccio, Marmolada, Sella, Puez Odle, Fanes, Tofane, Cristallo, Sesto, Sorapiss, Marmarole.

Via Ferratas of the Italian Dolomites SouthernVia Ferratas of the Italian Dolomites: Southern, Brenta and Lake Garda v. 2 (Cicerone Mountain Walking S.) Walk Italy. This guidebook, Via Ferratas of the Italian Dolomites Volume 2, is the second in a series of two published by Cicerone Press, which now fully replaces the previous Cicerone guidebook, Scrambles in the Dolomites, adding many new routes through the southern, Brenta and Lake Garda areas. Volume two documents southern Dolomites Via Ferrata routes in the major mountain ranges of Civetta, Schiara and Pala as well as those to the west in the Brenta. A significant addition, and, as far as we are aware, not previously published in any English-language guidebook, is the inclusion of routes around the northern end of Lake Garda and the Piccole Dolomites north of Vicenza. Here the mountains are generally lower and you can enjoy ferrata climbing over a much extended season, with some routes accessible for most of the year. While volume one covered the eastern, northern and central areas of the Dolomites, book two completes the picture, focusing on the southern, Brenta and Lake Garda areas.
