Explore the wild and rural Italy that few ever find. Natural pools, lakes and magnificent waterfalls provide a place to escape the crowds and cool off from the summer heat.
Wild Swimming Italy visits the most spectacular locations, many close to Italy’s most famous sights, and provides a range of opportunities from family-friendly river beaches for picnicking, to deep gorges and pools for the adventurous, with recommendations for camp sites, food and boating.
From the emerald streams of the Dolomites, to the azure colours of the Trentino lakes. From idyllic Tuscan hills with thermal pools to basalt gorges and valleys immersed in fragrant scrub, Wild Swimming Italy is a comprehensive guide to Italy’s wildest and most beautiful natural areas.
Also available as an ebook and premium app for iOS and Android.
