Amalfi Coast Walking Tour
Spectacular coastal walk from Ravello to Positano
Discover the scenic Amalfi Coast
The Amalfi Coast lives up to its reputation as one of the most spectacular parts of the Mediterranean. Explore this sun-kissed coast during this self-guided, 6-day walking tour from Ravello to Positano. You will be greeted with whitewashed houses, terraced vineyards and lush vegetation laced along the coastline.
This tour is available daily from 1 April to 31 October.
Pick up in a private vehicle from Naples (airport/hotel/station) and transfer to Ravello, a beautiful village perched 350 metres above the port of Amalfi, celebrated for Wagner, its gardens and superb views over the Gulf of Salerno.
Today, you have two options. The first, an easy walk, winds down stone paths to the coast and then wraps around to the town of Amalfi, leaving plenty of time to explore this fascinating town which was one of the four Maritime Republics (along with Venice, Genoa and Pisa) that ruled the Mediterranean in the Middle Ages. (3 kms, 2 hrs). The second, for the energetic, is a longer walk option into the extraordinary Valle delle Ferriere, which wraps through a national park, with towering cliffs, shaded chestnut forests, waterfalls and breathtaking views down over the coast.
Today's walk follows an ancient path that has linked the villages between for centuries, passing a monastery before dropping down to a little hamlet sitting above the sea, where you'll stay the night. Below your hotel is a beautiful hidden port, with coloured fishing boats, a small shingle beach and a very pleasant bar. In the afternoon, you will also have time to visit the famous nearby Grotta Smeralda (9 kms, 3 hours).
After a steep climb through villages and abandoned hamlets, today's walk curls past churches with multicoloured ceramic domes and panoramic views before descending into a spectacular fjord, with its clustered houses built on rock. The route then leads into a green valley before taking you down to your accommodation, a lovely family-run hotel with views across the gulf to Positano (8 kms, 4.5 hrs).
It is not by chance that the locals have baptised this walk with the rather extravagant name of Via degli Dei, the Path of the God’s. Despite the tourist hyperbole that has made this one of the most famous walks in the area, the views are extraordinary. It is a steep climb up to the start of the path from Vettica Maggiore, but it is worth it, and from there it is all downhill to Positano (8 kms, 5 hours).
After breakfast in your hotel, you will be taken by private vehicle back to the Naples railway station at 9:00 am.
