Ideas Wanted for Early Summer Hiking and Fly Fishing in Italy

Jump to last reply

I will probably post questions about this trip in a couple of different posts so I can ask specific questions in each post about the help I'm asking for. Thanks in advance.

My wife and I are just starting to plan a 2-week trip to Italy during the range of roughly June 25-July 12. We must be in Milan for June 30-July 3, but otherwise have flexibility in where we go and when we start/end the trip. We expect to visit 2-4 regions over the two weeks, including the Milan days. Our early thought is to do an open-jaw trip, flying from NYC to Milan (because schedules and airfare NYC-Milan seem convenient for us and cheapest), but back home from another city.

We have previously visited Rome, but nowhere else in Italy. We are moderately experienced international travelers, for example we've done great multi-week self-tour trips in South Africa and China. Driving or public transportation are equally fine ways of getting around.

Question for this post: In addition to enjoying photography/history/art, we are outdoors-minded people and want to spend 2-3 days of this trip day-hiking in rural areas and freshwater fly fishing. We're not looking for a multi-day backpacking itinerary, just good areas that offer fun opportunities for day-trip experiences. For day-hiking, mixed-terrain hikes roughly up to 10 miles are OK; mountain climbing - not this trip! So, we're looking for your helpful ideas about:
a) rural regions we could visit specifically for hiking/fly fishing excursions in late June/early July -- could be one region for both, or separate regions;
b) hiking clubs or fly-fishing guides we might hook up with;
c) sources of information about fly-fishing in Italy, such as any special laws or regulations we should know about fishing in Italy.

Again, thanks in advance.
