Discover the highlights and hidden corners of the world’s most beautiful coastline on this 8-day self-guided hiking/walking tour along ancient footpaths of the Amalfi Coast.
The Amalfi Coast is a stunning combination of sea, picturesque coastal towns and mountains, with an abundance of both culture and nature. The landscape of the Amalfi coast is immensely varied and surrounded by infinite ever changing views that can be typically Mediterranean with myrtle shrubs and mastic trees or almost alpine with meadows and bare rocks. And there’s cultural heritage abound! Nothing can compare with the mosaic terraced landscape, or the little churches, ruins of castles and old farmhouses that are found all over. The Amalfi Coast is definitely Europe’s most scenic and dramatic stretch of coastline. And the best thing is, everything can be discovered on foot!
On this tour, explore some of the thousands of footpaths on the Amalfi coast, some which are famous such as the Sentiero degli Dei (the Pathway of the Gods), and others which are at least a thousand years old, like the Maestra dei Villaggi – the ‘main road’ of the Republic of Amalfi. Also, have the chance to explore a few lesser known paths which are just as beautiful! Going from the sea to the mountains or vice versa, there are always stupendous views, and you’ll walk through little villages, vineyards and olive groves, Mediterranean scrubs and woods, living rocks and chestnut woods.
A large part of this tour is along the coast, and of course, it touches all the famous coastal villages, which are a must to see and include Amalfi itself, but also Atrani, Ravello, Praiano and of course the scenic Positano. Walking in this area, you will enjoy some of the most splendid views of the Amalfi Coast and the Bay of Naples, while being immersed in an almost Alpine landscape. You will also surely enjoy the rural scenery, which makes you feel far away from the glitter of some of the fashionable places along the coast.
This tour shows you the paths most guides don’t know about and most books don’t write about! Discover the reason why the Amalfi Coast has become Italy’s most famous coastline, but see as well that there are still places to be by yourself, surrounded by nature.
