Start and end in Naples, the "Amalfi Explorer" tour is a self-guided walking trip that takes 7 days. You will travel through Mount Vesuvius, Ravello, Sorrento and 5 other destinations in Italy. "Amalfi Explorer" is a private tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

A walking trip to explore Pompeii, Herculaneum, Mt Vesuvius, the island of Capri and the stunning Amalfi Coast. There are few trips which take in such a diverse combination of highlights. From the spectacular Amalfi coast to the fascinating ruins of Pompeii, to the historic centre of Naples and the beautiful island of Capri, this walking trip offers the very best of this captivating region. From your base in Sorrento you visit the island of Capri and the ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii before a private transfer takes you to the small town of Agerola, perched high above the sea.

Great trip. Very well organised and very enjoyable. I particularly liked our stay in San Lazarro. But don't wear hiking boots in Capri, the paths are good and they make your feet very hot.
