On this 8-day trip, explore the Amalfi Coast, definitely one of the most beautiful coastlines in Europe! Highlights include a hike along the stunning Sentiero degli Dei (Path of the Gods), one of the world’s finest day walks; the wonderful walk into the intriguing Valley of the Mills, the site of Europe’s first paper mills, almost 1000 years old; the spectacular villages of Positano, Atrani and Ravello; and a visit and beautiful circular walk around the island of Capri. And of course, beautiful Amalfi itself!

The Amalfi coast is an intriguing mix between an overwhelming natural environment and the patient labour of humans, who have transformed the steep mountain slopes into a cascade of terraced lemon groves, with charming villages, chapels and other sites of cultural interest scattered all around. A web of ancient pathways winds along coastal cliffs, leading from charming seaside towns, through rustic woodlands and up to beautiful villages perched atop craggy peaks.

Its dramatic coastline offers wonderful views, differing with every step you take, and the smell of rosemary and citrus trees fills the air, fields of multicoloured roses overwhelm the eyes and sandy beaches are magical to the touch. It offers an extraordinary palette of colours, with deep azure skies, white limestone cliffs, deep blue seas, and bright citrus orchards lit by the dazzling Mediterranean sun. This intoxicating sensual feast inspires a celebration of the goodness of life itself.

Visit the intriguing city of Naples, definitely one of the world’s most interesting cities and more than worth a visit, despite all the prejudice. A city with thousands of years of history, officially founded by the Greeks, which also boasts the world’s finest museum on Roman history and some amazing Baroque architecture. And of course, the area is also known for its great food, including the world’s best pizza.

Visit Pompeii of course, the world-famous ruins, which give a real-life impression of how a Roman city looked, especially the way we plan the visit, away from the crowds. Walk around the great Mount Vesuvius, the volcano which caused the destruction of Pompeii, one of the highlights of the trip!

On this enchanting walking adventure, you will discover that it is with good reason that the Amalfi Coast has become Italy’s most famous coastline, but also that it only takes a little effort to get ‘off the beaten track’. At just a few hundred metres from the crowds, you will find yourself surrounded by nature. On this tour, we also take you beyond the crowds in Naples to experience the hidden treasures and authentic culture of this intriguing city. You will discover the hidden tracks of Mount Vesuvius, offering amazing views over the whole Bay of Naples. In short, you’ll discover the real Italian paradise.

Accommodation and meals: All nights are spent in beautiful, characteristic hotels, mostly historical buildings (generally 3/4star; 4/5star on some departure dates). All rooms have ensuite facilities. All accommodations include breakfast. Most evening meals are included, for which we have selected the best available restaurants. On two nights you are free to choose from the wide choice of restaurants in the area. Your guide can give you good tips. Also, some (picnic) lunches on walking days are included in the tour price. On other days you are free to have your own lunch. Here you have the option of having your lunch in a nice restaurant or purchasing your supplies for a picnic lunch. Level of difficulty: Moderately easy 2/3. Reasonable fitness required, mostly easy paths, no technical difficulties. Some include walking uphill, sometimes on paths with rough surfaces. On some days extensions or shortcuts are possible. High standard of fitness is not necessary but you should be able to walk for up to 5 hours a day in the hot sun on dusty or stony tracks. Footpaths and waymarking: Most paths are relatively well maintained, but during the season some paths can get overgrown (we are in continuous contact with local authorities to keep the paths clean – please help us by providing your feedback on the quality of the paths). Only a small part of the route is waymarked (partly by us); elsewhere it is necessary to follow the route descriptions provided together with the maps. With these, it is always possible to find your route. In case you don’t feel confident a local guide can be provided for some trails.
CANCELLATION 20% Deposit payable upfront. Remaining balance payable 45 days prior to trip departure. Free cancellation up to 45 days prior departure, but the 20% deposit paid is non-refundable. No refund applicable within 45 days of departure.
