"Thank you for all your help, and the office staff.
Overall, we had a lovely time. The scenery of the Cilento National Park is spectacular. Walking holidays are very popular now and people are always looking for new places to walk. We will certainly recommend the area to our friends, with the proviso they check out the current state of the trails if they are going to do walking.
We are thinking of doing a cycle tour in Puglia at some stage in the future, and will definitely keep your company in mind.
One final point regarding the accommodation. We particularly liked B&B Vittoria as the owners were very accommodating and friendly & sat down to dinner with us which was a great opportunity to practice our conversational Italian. All the best."

"We felt that the trip in general was wonderful, with a very good choice of hotels, and some great hikes that we would never have found on our own. We love being in Italy and felt that you offer a great service to people who want active and involved travel"

About Us

Genius Loci Travel – the leading Italian specialist for walking, cycling & kayaking tours !

Genius Loci Travel is a fully-licensed Italian tour operator, operating under EU law. It was founded in 2001 as one of the first Italian tour operators specialized in walking & cycling tours.

Nowadays, there are many new outfitters, but be aware that the internet and social media have enabled many small, often inexperienced companies to look very impressive. Our knowledge of Italy and experience in organising tours are a guarantee for our clients!

Starting back in 1999 we have developed many walking tours & cycling trips, among which the first walking tours along the Amalfi Coast (when the ‘Path of the Gods’ was still unknown).

In the beginning we worked mainly on behalf of other specialized tour operators, in the UK, France, Germany, Australia and The Netherlands, on behalf of whom we developed some of the most successful walking tours ever – in terms of numbers, but also of clients’ satisfaction!

While continuing to do that, we now also handle private clients who can book one of our self-guided tours directly (which we can customise), or on behalf of whom we can also organise tailor-made bespoke group adventures.

For almost two decades, Genius Loci Travel has handled thousands of satisfied clients.

Genius Loci Travel S.r.l. is registered in Italy, Business Register No. 32136. Our registered address & head office is: Via Antonio Rotondo 5, 84127 Salerno - Italy.

Why book with Us

Our Commitment to You:

Responsible & sustainable tourism
All our trips are run as ‘responsible’ and ‘sustainable’ as possible— socially, culturally, economically and environmentally.

Genius Loci Travel neither aims to offer the most luxurious tours, neither the cheapest. But, we do give the best value for money. Compare our tours & prices to those of other outfitters (and check where we stay and what is included).

We started to sell our tours directly upon demand from our customers and still rely very heavily on word-of-mouth and repeat custom for our bookings. Our clients know that we give them the best holiday experience possible.

Financial security
We provide complete financial security for all our clients and adhere to all regulations concerning the safety of our clients’ money.

At the end of every trip, we provide our clients with a questionnaire that we ask to fill in. Our clients’ feedback is used to continuously improve the quality of our holidays (or maintain the quality of our ‘perfect’ tours).

We specialise only in Italy and are able to offer a more extensive programme of walking and cycling tours than anyone else in our country. Many of our tours are ‘originals’, designed & developed by our staff members. These are meticulously researched routes across many of the most inspiring parts of Italy.

Often imitated, never equaled!
