Walking the Amalfi Coast

Discover the highlights of Italy's Amalfi coast on foot

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most dramatic coastlines in Europe. Mountains jut steeply out of the Mediterranean and picturesque towns nestled in the coves below. Walking the ancient hillsides studded with lemon groves and framed by deep gorges, we descend from the Agerola Plain to the quaint towns of Positano, Ravello and of course Amalfi itself. No visit to the Bay of Naples would be complete without a trip to see the remains of Pompeii under the imposing volcanic cone of Mount Vesuvius. The best is saved till last with arguably the world's best coastal walk: the 'Walk of the Gods'. Away from the trails we partake in the favourite traditional pastime and sample incredible food and wine just like the Italians do.

The perfect combination of idyllic coastal views, heritage sites and picturesque towns make the Amalfi Coast our most popular destination for walking. Exodus have been operating this trip for over 15 years, using the comfortable Hotel Due Torri run by the friendly Acampora family who offer genuine Italian hospitality and ensure everyone has a wonderful stay.

Is this trip for you?

Activity Level: 2 (Leisurely/Moderate) 4 days centre-based walking with low altitude throughout.

The Amalfi Coast is home to some of the best-loved walks in Europe; the varied scenery and temperate climate make this a heaven for hikers and ramblers. The pace of the walks allows time to rest and enjoy the views, however, the terrain encountered on some of the paths is similar what you may find on a moderate walking trip.

The terrain and type of path will vary from man-made paved tracks, tarmac to forest trails. Whilst most walks are manageable for those with a good level of fitness, the walks involve some steep climbs and descents on slightly loose terrain and some have sections on narrow pathways alongside some sheer drops (not recommended for severe vertigo sufferers). Optional walks on Mount Vesuvius are on rocky cinder/gravel trails and likely to be loose underfoot, with steep sections and quite large drops in places.

On most days, there are considerable sections of steps (over 1500), which make the walks unsuitable for those with knees problems. Walks usually take between 4 and 6 hours including lunch stops (depending on the pace of your group) and require a good level of fitness. Summer temperatures can make some of the walks more strenuous. If you are concerned about the difficulty of the walks we recommend calling us to discuss the trip in more detail. 

Please note that due to high demand for this tour, on some weeks they may lay on a second group departure, which will follow an alternative itinerary. This includes the same excursions, but taken in a different order, usually reverse.


Eating and Drinking

All breakfasts, 4 packed lunches and 6 dinners are included.

Breakfast is continental style with a choice of cereal, bread, pastries, yoghurt, orange juice and milk with an array of teas/coffee. Included packed lunches usually consist of a sandwich filled with a choice of cold meats, tuna or local cheeses. All evening meals are taken in the hotel, where the standard is excellent and the chef takes great pride in showcasing the best of regional foods, including dishes such as ‘Scialatielli all'amalfitana’ (homemade pasta with seafood) and ‘branzino all’acqua pazza’ (seabass in crazy water!). Dinners usually consist of four courses, commencing with antipasti, followed by soup and/or pasta, a main meat dish with salad or vegetables and dessert. On certain evenings, there is the opportunity to learn how to make the famous Neapolitan pizza. Please note that drinks are not included with meals but available to purchase. Vegetarians are well catered for in Italy.
