On our new self guided walking holidays in Italy, you will discover that the Amalfi Coast has become Italy’s most famous coastal area for a reason, but also that there are still places where you can be all by yourself, surrounded by nature. Walking in this area lets you enjoy some of the most splendid views on the Amalfi Coast and the Bay of Naples, while immersed in an almost alpine landscape, far away from the glamour and the crowds of the fashionable places along the coast. Of course, if you wish, you can visit the famous coastal villages: Amalfi, Atrani, Ravello, Praiano and the scenic Positano.
The Alta Via is a must for the avid hiker (just like the GR-20 in Corsica). It is the long-distance trail which runs high above the Amalfi Coast, from Cava dei Tirreni in the very East to Punta Campanella, the tip of the peninsula. It roughly follows the ridge of the Lattari mountains, the backbone of the Sorrentianian Peninsula. And there are thousands of other footpaths here too, some of which famous, such as the “Sentiero degli Dei” (the “Footpath of the Gods”), or are at least a thousand years old, like the “Maestra dei Villaggi” – the ‘main road’ of the Republic of Amalfi.
Our Amalfi coast walking tours will show you the paths most guides don’t know about and most books don’t write about!
