Italy

Amalfi Coast walking 7 Days

Beginning from Capri, explore this enchanting region of Italy, hiking trails that take you off the beaten path; from the Isle of Capri to the quaint and charming villages along this dramatic stretch of coastline, follow in the footsteps of writers, artists and romantics who have found in this sun-drenched region stunning vistas, mouth-watering cuisine and a culture that is unique and special.



Day 1

Arrive in Capri from Naples by ferry with a spectacular view from the boat as it makes its way through the Bay of Naples over to the island of Capri. Take a walk around the southern part of the island with fabulous views of the stunning coastline and finish up with a trip to the former Villa of the Roman Emperor Tiberius who ruled from Capri from 27 to 37AD.


Day 2

Spend the day in Anacapri exploring the western side of the island by foot on well-maintained and stunning coastal trails, which give information and insight into the island’s unique microclimate and wildlife, as well as its fascinating history of defensive forts dotted along the trail. Depart from Capri by boat back to your hotel on the mainland.

 

 

Day 3

Take a short transfer to the beginning of today’s walk, which is one of the most stunning trails in the region, the Pathway of the Gods. This spectacular walk reaches an altitude of 650m to offer fantastic views of the coastline as well as the charming town of Positano which you will descend to by foot.  Enjoy a well-deserved plate of seafood pasta and a glass of crisp local white wine.


Day 4

Get ready to be challenged today on one of the more invigorating climbs of the week, which passes from Montepertuso through the small village of Santa Maria del Castello, with an altitude gain of 185m. This walk passes through buccolic and tranquil rural countryside away from the hustle and bustle of the coastal towns. Optional Cooking course: This afternoon, learn how to cook linguine tonno olive e capperi or pasta fatta in casa gnocchi with Felice Murano a wonderful cook featured on National Geographic Traveler. Contact us for more information.

Day 5

Leaving the town of Positano by boat today, you will arrive in the town of Amalfi, which has a long and rich history dating back to its Roman origins. We’ve arranged for you to meet with a local guide here who will share more about this former autonomous state and who will also accompany you on today’s walk from Amalfi to Ravello through the Vallee delle ferriere national park. Optional full day cooking class with Mama Agata. Pick vegetables from her garden, learn how to make your own Limoncello, savour a delicious meal, and listen to Mamma's stories about cooking for celebrities!

Day 6

For those looking to get some more exercise in before the trip ends, today’s loop walk to the charming coastal town of Minori is a short but vigorous walk descending and ascending the many plentiful steps in this area. You can also take time to relax in the picturesque town of Ravello, explore the beautiful grounds of the historic Villa Cimbrone and sample the best of those luscious local lemons with a tasting of the infamous Limoncello liquor.  Optional Wine and cheese tasting with sommelier Gennaro, he will demonstrate and explain the nuances of traditional types of wine from the Amalfi region, as well as dessert wines and grappas.

What better way to end the week. Salute!

Day 7

Depart from Ravello and possibly visit the ruins at Pompei before departing from Naples.
