Inn-to-inn walking in Europe

This item appears on page 16 of the November 2008 issue.

My husband and I, in our late 60s, traveled in Italy, Germany and France from April to mid-July 2008 with an emphasis on inn-to-inn walking. We do not like to carry a full pack, stay in hostels or huts, camp, reserve ahead, go with a group or pay a lot to arrange for a tour company’s independent walk.

We very successfully spent several days each walking in Tuscany, around the perched villages area north of Nice, in the Dordogne and along the Rhine and Mosel rivers.

I would be very happy to talk with anyone interested in this type of travel. It takes a lot of research, but we already have done much of it. We also would appreciate contact with anyone who has done inn-to-inn walks in other areas; e-mail us c/o ITN.
