The Amalfi Coast is probably Italy’s most beautiful coastline, with a stunning combination of sea, mountains and picturesque coastal towns in between. On this eight-day self-guided hiking tour, discover the immensely varied landscape surrounded by ever-changing views, which can be typically Mediterranean, intoxicating with its wild, perfumed herbs or almost alpine with meadows and bare rocks.

The Alta Via dei Monti Lattari is the long-distance trail that runs high above the Amalfi Coast, from Cava dei Tirreni in the very east to Punta Campanella, the very point of the Sorrento Peninsula. It roughly follows the ridge of the Lattari mountains, the backbone of the peninsula. The scenery of this tour is therefore mainly mountainous, but there are several occasions to descend to the valleys with the incomparable mosaic-terraced landscape.

Going from the sea to the mountains, or vice versa, the views are always stupendous, and you’ll walk through little villages, vineyards and olive groves, Mediterranean scrub and woods. Beautiful little churches, ruins of castles and old farmhouses are found all over the place.

This trip is definitely a must for the avid hiker (just like the GR20 in Corsica). You will walk through real mountain scenery, scale amazing sheer drops and pass through chestnut forests and attractive countryside, with wonderful terraced lemon groves and vineyards. In addition to all the above, this walk lets you enjoy some of the most splendid views on the Amalfi Coast and the Bay of Naples, while immersed in an almost alpine landscape. The tour also includes some of famous footpaths such as Sentiero degli Dei (the Footpath of the Gods) and Via Maestra dei Villaggi (the main road of the once Republic of Amalfi).

During this tour we offer you the possibility to include some extra days to explore side trails as well as visit the famous coastal villages of Amalfi, Ravello and Positano.

Discover for yourself why the Amalfi Coast has become Italy’s most famous coastline for good reason during this tour. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.
