Painting and Walking Holidays in Amalfi, Italy

Italy • Campania • AMALFI

Amalfi, Italy

The Amalfi coast, Pompeii and magical Capri

Authentic Adventures have another UNESCO World Heritage Site in its sights – the beautiful Amalfi coast - one of Europe’s most breathtaking stretches of coastline. The terraced cliffs are famous for their cultivation of lemons – known as sfusato amalfitano – a larger, local kind, grown along the entire coast. Limoncello tasting anyone? Visit iconic towns such as Positano, arguably the most pretty, Ravello, Amalfi, the Vesuvius National Park and Pompeii. Our walking groups ascend volcanic paths to breath-taking views of the Bay of Naples, follow ancient paths through lemon and olive groves, with stunning scenery all around.

Photographers immerse themselves in Naples itself for a wonderful day of street and candid photography, contrasted by photographing the stunning landscapes filled with duomos, gardens and palaces. Painters will love the sparkle of the Mediterranean, colourful houses and boats, and of course, Pompeii. Take a short boat ride to the island of Capri on your free day and return refreshed and inspired.

Where we stay

Hotel Bacco

From its panoramic position 450 metres above sea level and nestled into the hills, Hotel Bacco is a small, 3-star hotel offering breath taking views of the Amalfi Coast. Peaceful and secluded, Hotel Bacco is surrounded by vineyards and flowered gardens. For nature lovers, the hotel is within easy reach of the famous Sentiero degli Dei (The Trail of the Gods) and many hiking paths. It is a great base for exploring the rich surroundings, and is conveniently set between Positano, Praiano and Ravello. Hotel Bacco provides a welcoming atmosphere where you can enjoy individually designed rooms – some with lovely panoramas of this famous coast. The hotel is also known for its fantastic restaurant with views across the ocean – it has just won an award as the 5th Best Restaurant in Campania (a huge area) thanks to their homemade limoncello, first press olive oil (made from groves surrounding the hotel) and a fresh catch of fish delivered daily by a local fisherman!

Some sea-view rooms are available at a supplement.
