Discover the highlights of the region on foot while you walk the Amalfi Coast. This Italian walking holiday takes in stunning views, culture, food and drink.
The Amalfi Coast is one of the most dramatic coastlines in Europe. Mountains jut steeply out of the Mediterranean and picturesque towns nestled in the coves below. Walking the ancient hillsides studded with lemon groves and framed by deep gorges, we descend from the Agerola Plain to the quaint towns of Positano, Ravello, and of course Amalfi itself.
No visit to the Bay of Naples would be complete without a trip to see the remains of Pompeii under the imposing volcanic cone of Mount Vesuvius. The highlight of this Amalfi Coast guided Italian walking holiday is saved till last with arguably the world’s best coastal walk: the ‘Walk of the Gods’.
Away from the trails we partake in a favourite traditional pastime and sample incredible food and wine just like the Italians do.
