- Style: Guided Small Group Walking Tour
- Duration: 8 days/7 nights
- Starts in: Naples
- Mount Vesuvius
- Walk of the Gods
Day 1 Agerola
Make your way to Agerola, a small village set in the hills above the Amalfi Coast. Your base for the next seven nights is a small, family run hotel set high above the seashore with a pool.
Day 2 Monte Tre Calli
Start today’s walk from the centre of Bomerano. Follow narrow paths and tracks, and climb to the top of Monte Tre Calli to admire the gorgeous views of the jagged coastline and seemingly endless blue sea. The Agerola Plain stretches out before you and, on a clear day, you may be able to see the island of Capri, a magnet for the rich and famous for many years.
Day 3 Amalfi
Walk towards Amalfi, a town popular with the British since Edwardian times. Follow a path all the way to the shores of the Mediterranean, encountering some uphill sections and steps en route. On arrival at Amalfi, explore the town and see the large Duomo which dominates it. There’s time for a refreshing swim in the small bay or you may wish to enjoy a well-earned gelato, before heading back to your hotel by road.
Day 4 Pompeii & Mount Vesuvius
Pompeii was a thriving ancient settlement before the catastrophic eruption of nearby Mount Vesuvius buried the city in ash over 2,000 years ago. Explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site this morning and imagine how life was during the Roman times. The well preserved remains include bathhouses and homes adorned with detailed frescoes. After lunch, travel by bus high up the slopes to see the volcanic crater and, depending on the weather, it may be possible to take a walk around the crater.
Day 5 Ravello
Today’s walk begins in Ravello where there’s time to visit the landscaped gardens of the Villa Cimbrone. The route is mostly downhill, eventually reaching the village of Pontone. Continue along shady paths through the Valle delle Ferriere National Park by following a stream through fragrant lemon groves en route to the town of Amalfi.
Day 6 Agerola
Enjoy a free day to further explore the area at your own pace. You may choose to visit the ancient city of Herculaneum or take the ferry to beautiful Capri. Your tour leader will be able to help with arrangements, whatever you choose to do. Alternatively, you may simply relax by the pool.
Day 7 Walk of the Gods
Renowned as one of the finest day walks in the world, the Walk of the Gods is a wonderful finale to a week of fantastic walking. The route follows undulating hills and ensures sweeping coastal views, while the trail passes rustic shepherd huts and ancient stone houses carved into the limestone. The walk is likely to get the blood pumping, before descending a long series of steps to Positano. Explore the pretty alleyways lined with wisteria or take a dip in the clear water. Afterwards, transfer back to your hotel and enjoy a farewell dinner with your fellow travellers.
Day 8 Agerola
