Amalfi Coast - Multi Centred - Single or Multi-Centred Self Guided walking holiday - Click here to find out more about Self Guided walking holidays 

The Area

The Amalfi Coast stretches 50km from Sorrento to Salerno and is one of the most breath-taking coastlines in Europe. Steep terraces full of scented lemon groves fall sheer into a deep blue Mediterranean sea; whitewashed houses cling precariously to unforgiving slopes while sea and sky merge in one vast blue horizon. Colourful towns are pasted onto the steep slopes and have a history dating back 100’s of years.


Amalfi Town 

Your first four nights are spent in the beautiful town of Amalfi which has origins documented  as long ago as the 6th century when it was the centre of a trading network spread throughout the Mediterranean. Today, it is still known well beyond what its size should command due to the beauty of the town and its stunning setting. Situated at the head of a deep ravine you can wander along narrow alleyways through the town and surrounding slopes unimpaired by traffic as the town is car free. Explore the small quaint shops often packed with locally produced Limoncello liqueur found in many shapely bottles and take refreshments in the tea shops, inspired by the English 100 years ago when they were the dominant visitors. Exploring further, steep steps lead to the exquisite 9th century Duomo and many other examples of medieval architecture. Far below, the town also has its own beach popular amongst visitors and locals alike. 


Positano

Positano is the coast's most photogenic town, rising almost vertically from the sea in a riot of colour. It is called the ‘Gem of the Divine Coast’ with houses and villas built on terraces with beautiful gardens planted with palm trees, orange and lemon groves. The main road passes high above, leaving the town mostly to those who wish to explore the narrow streets, winding lanes, paths and tracks around the town on foot. Small shops and elegant boutiques selling locally produced clothing line the narrow streets. Below is a small beach lined with restaurants to sip a cool ‘Limoncello’ whilst taking in the atmosphere after a day’s walking.

The Walking

We offer a superb selection of walks from the thousands of footpaths along the Amalfi coast. Some are famous such as the “Sentiero degli Dei”- the “Pathway of the Gods” – or are at least a thousand years old, like the “Maestra dei Villaggi” – the ‘main road’ of the Republic of Amalfi. The paths are sporadic in quality of marking but our walk booklet of course, will mean you will not be ‘misplaced’. Most of the walks follow the coast allowing you to enjoy the stunning coastal views from a high vantage point, an eagle’s eye view and on occasions as far as the island of Capri off shore in the distance. Walks will take you through real mountainous scenery, along paths near the cliff edge, through chestnut forests and attractive countryside, with wonderful terraced lemon groves and vineyards. You can visit cultural treasures such as rural chapels, walk past ancient farm houses, and explore rural villages far away from the tourist trail.

Luggage Transfer

The luggage is transferred for you from Amalfi to Positano so you have the day to walk.

Walk Grading

Easy to Moderate. 

EXTENSION

You can extend your stay on the Amalfi Coast with 3 nights in Sorrento. As well as enjoying the town overlooking the Bay of Naples you could visit the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum or take a trip to Vesuvius.
