On our exciting walking tour of the Amalfi Coast you will explore an area of sensational coastal scenery: limestone cliffs, serpentine roads, terraced lemon groves and 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. As you go take a trip back in time on visits to Greek Paestum, Roman Pompeii and Capri where Emperors held court during the Roman Imperial era more than two thousand years ago!
DURATION: 8 days
PICK UP & DROP OFF: Naples Airport
On our Small Group Walking Tour in the Amalfi Coast you are rewarded with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and Coastline whose rocky mountains rise nearly 5000 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.
The Amalfi coast has long been a favourite destination for the flamboyant lifestyles of the stylish Jet Set so it is hardly surprising to find out that Roman Emperor Tiberius moved his court to Capri, that the Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev owned an island near Positano and American writer Gore Vidal chose Ravello for his home.
You might spend a couple of days beforehand in Naples, famous for coffee and pizza, masterpieces preserved inside the numerous churches around the city and the archaeological museum. Mt Vesuvius from its slumbering crater, observes the busy world passing by.

Pick up at 14.00 at the Naples airport and travel to the excavated Roman town of Pompeii to explore this fascinating and unique archaeological site. Life came to an abrupt halt with the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD and the entire roman city was completely buried for 1700 years. A scenic drive south follows along the bay of Salerno.
Meals: Dinner Walk: 3 hrs strolling around the ruins in the archaeological zone
Paestum is an ancient Greco-Roman city, a little off the beaten path, 40 km south of Salerno and an excellent complement to Pompeii. Settled by Greek colonists in the 6th century BC, Paestum was by Greek-Lucanians, Romans and Christians. Malarial swamps led to the abandonment of the city in the 9th century AD, but also helped preserve its finest artefacts. Today, Paestum boasts three well-preserved Doric Greek temples, ruins of an ancient city and an excellent museum.
The site is a little off the beaten path makes an excellent complement to the Pompeii. Lunch is at a Buffalo Mozzarella farm. In the afternoon we take the famous Amalfi Drive to Ravello.

From the hamlet of Scala above Ravello we walk into the ‘Valle delle Ferriere’ Natural Park through cleverly cultivated vineyards and lemon groves.
After lunch, we enter the gorge and make our way past waterfalls, abandoned iron-works and paper mills as we descend into the bustling town of Amalfi for a well earned and thirst-quenching ‘sorbetto al limone’ in the heart of Amalfi.
Enjoy a free evening to go out for dinner in the heart of Ravello.
Meals: Breakfast / Lunch Walk: 5 hrs / 14.5 km
Walk through lemon groves down to the tiny village of Atrani. Tour of Amalfi and the cathedral. Free time to explore and have lunch.

Enjoy lunch in the Piccola Marina and then walk up to Capri. Weather permitting sail around the island in the emerald blue waters and through the faraglioni rocks.
The best way to enjoy Capri is from the sea, but it is still fun to take in the atmosphere of the elegant boutiques and outdoor cafes in Capri’s main square even though we will not be the only tourists doing this! We return by boat or hydrofoil to Positano where you can relax and dine at your leisure near the beach.

We believe that where you sleep is an important part of your overall travel experience. So we put a lot of effort into carefully choosing the hotels for each tour.
We always look for attractive, clean and quiet rooms with private bathrooms. But, our priority is also to find the best possible accommodations to make sure that each night you are comfortably settled in a place that is welcoming and full of authentic local charm.
The result is a fabulous selection of delightful hotels, medieval palaces, family-run hotels, country residences, manor houses, historic inns, luxurious alpine hotels – sometimes with a spa, sauna or swimming pool facilities – and all with character, good food and a friendly atmosphere.
You will have to keep coming back to experience them all! Sweet Dreams!
Getting out and about on foot is a wonderful way to slow down the pace, relax and get some healthy exercise.
When we walk we see so much more – grapevines, wildflowers, ancient oaks, wheat fields, avenues of cypresses and pine, time resistant hills and valleys.
As we stroll through historic towns we learn about the culture of the people; as we stand in the splendour of the countryside, beneath the soaring columns of ancient temples, abbey walls and turrets of medieval castles we marvel at man’s ability to conceive of and construct such monuments.
Food is an all important part of each and every one of our journeys. We are foodies, we love to savour the authentic flavours of each destination we visit. And let’s not forget the wine “the drink of the gods” which will accompany every meal, even picnics!
Picture yourself eating Buffalo mozzarella from a farm in Amalfi, tasting a Sicilian cannolo with fresh ricotta cheese, home-made pasta, organic vegetables, fresh fish and so on.
Or why not consider a Gourmet Cooking Holiday in Tuscany, where you will learn directly from the locals?
If all this sounds mouthwatering then look no further, you are in the right place 😉
On our small group tours we use a combination of gourmet restaurants, local trattorias, traditional pubs, tapas bars and farmhouse meals, to give you the best overall experience!
Each adventure combines fantastic hikes and authentic cultural experiences which make for a phenomenal and enriching travel experience. – admire Giotto’s frescoes in Assisi – walk in the Castle gardens of Henry VIII – stand at the tomb of St James in Compostela – gaze at and touch the columns of a Greek temple – visit the birthplace of Napoleon Buonaparte – see how a Duke lives at Blenheim Palace – tread the streets of Pompeii – admire mosaics in a Norman cathedral – understand more about the Roman Empire Travel in the richest artistic heritage in the world, many of which are part of UNESCO.
