Start in Amalfi Coast & Campania and end in Positano, the trip Classic Amalfi Coast - 8 Days is a self-guided walking tour that takes 8 days. You will travel through Praiano, Positano and Amalfi Coast & Campania in Italy. Classic Amalfi Coast - 8 Days is a trip which includes accommodation in hotels, meals and others.

An unrivalled Italian coastal walk following in the ‘Footpath of the Gods’. Take a spring early summer or autumn walk in the Mezzogiorno –“The land of the midday sun” - along Italy’s stunning Amalfi Coast. A land where the mountains, marquis pastures, lemon groves, vineyards and villages meet the sea. A place where you could be strolling on a rugged trail for one moment and then in the next be winding down through a citrus grove then through a pleasant village towards the blue waters of the Mediterranean, gelati in hand. The region is a deeply romantic place and for good reason; here you will find that golden light making the cliffs glow creamy gold, while the waters below graduate into an aquamarine haze. Then there are the greens of the cliff tops being speckled with the spring flowers and herbs of the Mediterranean “Macchia” shrubland. The towns, villages and towers that cling to the cliffs, can be a riotous mix of vibrant colours and tempered pastel shades. There is so much history, the Greeks settled here in the eighth century B.C. and looking down you can almost imagine the Argonauts rowing by enroute to tackle some Titan. The Romans came next, building villas around Positano and on Capri. There was much destruction caused by Vesuvius in the geological record and not just at Pompei and Ercolanium some villas were rebuilt even on the Amalfi Coast. In the early mediaeval period Amalfi became a major maritime city state claiming to have invented the compass and some aspects of parchment manufacture. Today the town remains much as it was with narrow lanes and St. Andrew’s Cathedral dominating the scene. We walk through this spectacular region using the extensive web of footpaths and mule tracks that thread along the cliffs and a wealth of natural and cultural treasures can be reached relatively easily. We pass close to beautiful monasteries, caves and ancient farmhouses, visit nature reserves and ruins of paper mills, whilst enjoying spectacular views during all the walks. We also walk through the historic towns of Amalfi, Atrani, Ravello, Scala Praiano and Positano, all little pearls set in a fantastic landscape. You could extend your stay with a number of walks on the “Finis Terrae” (Land’s End) of the Sorrentine Peninsula, the marine nature reserve of Punta Campanella, and on the famous island of Capri.
