Guided Amalfi Coast Hiking Tour

Guided Amalfi Coast Hiking Tour
Italy's fabled Amalfi Coast may be one of the world's greatest drives, but the views are even better from the quiet footpaths high above the Mediterranean Sea. These ancient trails crisscross the coast and are among the most spectacular walks of Italy. This hiking tour features the best of the Amalfi coast. An Italian guide shows us the marvels of Pompeii. We spend a day exploring the island of Capri. Coastal footpaths lead to spectacular views of mountains and sea. Olives and lemons abound. You will want to try a granita al limone (a lemon flavored Italian ice). Over dinner you can savor authentic southern Italian cooking and fresh local seafood. Sipping a limoncello while watching the sun slowly dip behind the sea you will be glad you came.
Day 1 Sorrento  Rendezvous at our Sorrento hotel. After lunch take a leisurely hike. Stroll to a bluff with views across the sea to the island of Capri. Lemon trees, vineyards, and olive groves make for a quintessential southern Italian background. This walk provides the perfect introduction to the Sorrento peninsula with views of the azure sea and green mountains.

Day 2 Island of Capri  A fast hydrofoil speeds us across the bay to Capri. Visit the beautiful Blue Grotto with its magical incandescent waters. Take a chairlift up Monte Solare for panoramic views. Explore Villa San Michelle, a perfectly preserved Roman Imperial Villa.
 
Day 3 Pompeii  Visit the famous ruins of Pompeii with an Italian guide. In 79 AD Mount Vesuvius erupted burying the town under 30 feet of mud and ash. Today you can explore the excavated homes and businesses gaining a rich insight into the daily life of Romans 2,000 years ago. After lunch we transfer to our hotel in Positano.
 
Day 4-6 Ravello  Transfer to Ravello for a two-night stay. High above the sea Ravello is a stylish little town that is known for ravishing gardens and the best views of the Amalfi coast. Hike downhill to the coastal towns of Atrani and Amalfi. Just around the bend from Amalfi, little Atrani has a sandy beach, a charming town square, and few tourists. Hike the breathtaking Path of the Gods (Sentiero degli Dei), Amalfi's most spectacular footpath. Excellent bus and train connections make for an easy departure at the end of your walking holiday in Italy.
