Coast, contours and Capri
A typical itinerary on this walking holiday in Amalfi
A short transfer to our hotel in Agerola leaves time to explore before dinner.
The walk of the Gods
This amazing walk follows the contours of the land and leads us through fields of wildflowers, past ancient stone huts, and across precipitous terraced hillsides overlooking the sea. We end the day in beautiful Positano on the Amalfi Coast.
Valley of watermills
Via the charming village of Pontone, we follow the Torre dello Zirro ridge before descending into the valley of the watermills, with its ruins of ancient paper mills. The path takes us deep into the valley, with lush vegetation and waterfalls. Later, we walk to a 13th century paper mill before stopping by a limoncello maker to observe and taste!
Off to Amalfi
From the artists’ retreat of Ravello, we descend via vineyards, lemon groves and hamlets to the coast and Amalfi town. After an ice-cream, we take the labyrinthine path around the headland to Atrani.
Pop down to the sea or enjoy a boat ride from Sorrento to the island of Capri with its Roman ruins and stone-paved lanes –a Mediterranean retreat which is surely one of the most beautiful in the world.
Vesuvius and Pompeii
From high on Vesuvius we circle the crater past lava flows and pumice fields to view the Bay of Naples –one of the panoramic wonders of the world. Later, we explore the extraordinary site of Pompeii.
The ridge of Monte Tre Calli
Through vineyards and chestnut woods, we climb the ridge of Monte Tre Calli, with its wide vistas. Choose to continue the climb to the Monte Sant'Angelo, or stop and enjoy an extended picnic lunch. We descend via the chapel of the Silent Virgin to our hotel.
We depart early for Naples airport.
