The Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful coastlines in Europe. An intriguing mix between a stunning natural environment and the patient labour of people, the steep mountain slopes have been transformed. The coast is a burst of colour, covered in a cascade of terraced lemon groves, with charming pastel and white villages, many chapels, and other sites of cultural interest scattered all over.
Its dramatic coastline offers beautiful views, different every step you take, and the smell of rosemary and citrus trees fills the air, fields of multicoloured roses overwhelm the eyes and sandy beaches are magical to the touch.
It offers an extraordinary palette of colours, with deep azure skies, white limestone cliffs, deep blue seas, and bright citrus orchards lit by the dazzling Mediterranean sun. This intoxicating sensual feast inspires a celebration of the goodness of life itself.
A web of ancient pathways winds along shoreline cliffs, leading from charming coastal towns, through rustic woodlands and up to beautiful villages perched atop craggy peaks.
Highlights include our hike along the stunning ‘Sentiero degli Dei’ (‘Footpath of the Gods’), one of the world’s finest day walks. As well as the wonderful walk into the intriguing Valley of the Mills, the location of Europe’s first paper mills at almost a 1000 years old. And the spectacular villages of Positano, Atraniand Ravello. You will also do a magnificent loop walk over the island of Capri.
It has been said that “on the day an Amalfitano goes to Paradise, for him, it’s a day like any other…”
For this trip to proceed as a guided walking holiday we will need a group of at least 4 people, so bring your friends and family.
