Cammino Basilico and walking in the foot of Itlay

Advice on best areas for walking in Basilicata and Catabira
15 months ago, March 2nd 2022 No: 1 Msg: #209611  
We are targeting the foot of Italy for walking in May.

This has highlighted the Cammino Basilico. We have no plans to do all 1200 km of it.

I am keen to hear experiences of other travellers who walked this area.

What are the best parts of the Cammino that can be tackled in two or three days stretches.

Any comments about the need to book accommodation in advance and any other advice gratefully received.

Note we are not looking for easy solutions. We like a challenge!

I looked for barefooting in Italian sources, but none were found. Instead, they mentioned the ban on taking photos with touts posing as "centurions" or swimming in the Trevi fountain. However, it is important to point out that other seaside cities, like Ischia, already have similar municipal laws aimed at actions that damage the "decorum" of the region (goes together with prohibiting shirtless walking).

I can advise you on the route I took. But it is very convenient to do this by renting a car <snip>. Itinerary: arriving in San Minnanto Alto (very tasty white truffles with risotto, I recommend it), then there was a chic walk to Gambassi. On the 3rd day of the trip I visited San Gimiento, after which I went straight to Gracciano for about 3 hours. Next was a short break to Monteriggioni and its famous towers. It ended in Siena.
