Overview

Book
Set on the shores of the sparkling Mediterranean, the Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful coastlines in Europe. Lace up your boots and set your eyes to the spectacular and sparkling Mediterranean horizon for this scenic trip on the Amalfi Coast. Stroll through the lush Mulini and Ferriere valleys, say 'buongiorno' to local farmers along the 'Pathway of the Gods', and take a boat ride to the glamorous island of Capri.

Highlights

    • The ancient Roman town of Pompeii has been frozen in time under the shadow of the very volcano which destroyed it, Mount Vesuvius. Explore the vast ruins, including the House of the Faun and the Temple of Apollo
    • Walk the Path of the Gods along the spectacular Sentiero degli Dei, one of the most scenic trails in the world. Taste delicious Agerola cheese on the way as a shepherd (and his goats!) will join you to reveal the process of cheese making.
    • The island of Capri isn't just a lavish retreat for Roman emperors of the past and their modern day equivalents. Powerful cliff faces enclose secluded coves, grottos and spectacular Mediterranean scenery
    • Visit a local artisan at his small liqueur factory in Bomerano. Learn some of the science behind how to make limoncello, understand why the area is famed for the production of the liqueur and sample a drop too.
    • Free time in Naples allows you to explore its historic precinct at your own pace. Descend below the city’s streets to discover the extraordinary catacombs, before indulging in a traditional pizza in a fine local restaurant
    • Settle into your feature stay hotel in the very centre of Amalfi, perfectly located for explorations along this magnificent stretch of coastline.

Make sure you have sound, comfortable walking shoes. Don't assume the daily kms will be a doddle - it's a sheer coastline and the walks are neither for the unfit or the faint-hearted.

The tour is fantastic, our guide, Marco Moretto, was wonderful. It is more strenuous than the website suggests but we managed well despite being in our 60s and 70s..We went to places we never imagined and it was better than we expected. There views from high up on the hills are amazing and we always stopped at wonderful places for lunch.

To wander around a landscape whose skyline is dominated by Vesuvius and includes a visit to Pompeii, Naples, Ravello, Atrani, Amalfi, Positano and Capri to top it off. Magnificent natural scenery mixed with unique ancient history blending with every day life and crazy Italian traffic though with a special opportunity to savour local dining and excellent wines must satisfy the travel urges of many. Look at the travel pages of the weekend papers and one gets a certain smugness of ' been there, seen that. At least moderate levels of fitness are required to take full advantage of the 'WOW' moments.

The Spirit of Amalfi is the perfect way to be immersed in the landscape and culture of the Amalfi Coast! Our Tour Leader also taught us so much about the landscape, flora and way of life of this wonderful area.

The Spirit of Amalfi was one of the best holidays I have ever had in my life. The walking in parts was hard, but we all felt a great sense of achievement at the end of each day. There is no way that one could connect with the area as well as we did, if one was not on foot. The spectacular scenery, the food, the camaraderie, the guide, perfecto!!

Adequate details about trail conditions such as better small details regarding actual surface conditions ie. varying tread and riser heights on trails, essential to have good hiking footwear WITH TREAD on the soles. Wet conditions can be very dangerous with no tread on footwear

The Spirit of Amalfi is an amazing experience. As per previous comments, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy yourself. The scenery is incredible, the hotels and their staff are wonderful. Our tour leader Marco had a Masters in Environmental Science, and was also an expert in the history, botany and geology of this unique part of the world. An unforgettable experience, thank you!
