On our small group walking tour to Amafi we visit an area of sensational coastal scenery of limestone cliffs, serpentine roads and terraced lemon groves with famous towns like Amalfi, Positano and Ravello. Villages and remote monasteries here have long been connected by a series of ancient footpaths, which provide a perfect opportunity for walking and hiking.
On this walking tour, you are rewarded with stunning views of the Mediterranean Coastline whose Lattari mountains rise nearly 5,000-feet steeply from the deep blue sea. Wildflowers such as Broom and Cistus rose decorate the hillsides in Spring and cyclamen carpet the woods in Autumn. It is hardly surprising to find out that the Roman Emperor Tiberius moved his court to Capri, that the Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev owned an island near Positano or that American writer Gore Vidal chose Ravello for his home. Naples is famous for coffee and pizza and chaos and lies at the foot of Mount Vesuvius with the excavations of Pompeii a few miles away.
Our journey starts here almost 2,000 years ago when the once thriving market town of Pompeii was buried under ash during a massive eruption of the volcano. Thereafter, the countryside and serenity of the Amalfi Peninsula await us.
Your first day will see us explore Naples, Pompeii and Ravello. In the morning, we cover Ravello, Valle delle Ferriere and Amalfi. We shall explore Paestum on day three and travel from Amalfi to Atrani and Ravello the following day.
From Ravello, we head to Sentiero degli Dei and Positano. We will have time on day six for the island of Capri and Punta Campanella on day seven.
In the morning of day eight, you will be transferred to Naples Airport.
