July 16, 2008 - PRLog -- Boulder, CO - Intrepid Travel announces the addition of two new self guided walking tours through Italy, one the length of the Cinque Terra and the second, along the Amalfi Coast.

Walkers on the new self guided tour through the Cinque Terra will walk from picturesque Bonassola to the promontory village of Portovenere. They will stroll along one of the finest coastal paths in Europe, and will visit the pretty pastel fishing villages along the way. Travelers will make for the hills and enjoy the perfect panoramas as well as the excellent seafood and renowned wines from the terraced vineyards of the coast.

Cinque Terra Self Guided Walk
The famous coastal path of the Cinque Terre offers breathtaking panoramas of the coast and the colorful painted houses that make up the 'five lands'. The area is famous for its seafood and for the produce of the steep hillsides - wine, olives and basil. Try the pesto, which is the local specialty - it's fabulous! Trips start at 5 days for $895.

While navigating the Amalfi Coast, travelers on this self guided tour through Italy will head into the mountains and walk along the world famous 'Walk of the Gods'. On the top of these gorgeous peaks, travelers will get to experience the Italian flair of life. This Amalfi Coast walking tour leads explorers on a scenic footpath through churches, olive groves and sweeping views leading to the narrow fjord of Furore with its unusual built-in-the-rock houses. Travelers then descend by the footpath known as the Via dell' Amore to San Gennaro church, and to the center of the delightful fishing village of Vettica Maggiore.

Amalfi Coast Self Guided Walk
Take the circular walk from idyllic Ravello down the ancient trail to the pretty whitewashed fishing village of Atrani. Head slowly down through little hamlets, meadows and shady woods and waterfalls to the historic town of Amalfi. Its medieval architecture, sea views and local crafts are justly renowned. 8 days for $1700.

Intrepid Travel's self guided walking tours through Italy are 5-8 days long and range in price from $895 to $1700. To learn more about Intrepid Travel's self guided walking tours visit:
