Trekking the Amalfi Coast
On Italy’s celebrated Amalfi Coast, just south of Naples and the looming presence of Mount Vesuvius, you can walk through some of the most sublime coastal landscapes anywhere in the Mediterranean. With its near vertical cliffs, neatly terraced slopes, and picturesque villages impossibly located on the ridges and folds of the hills, the Amalfi Coast is superb for hiking.
You can explore a network of ancient paths and stairways criss-crossing this landscape from village to village, through vineyards, lemon orchards and chestnut groves. Many of the walking trails have sweeping sea views across the Bay of Naples to the islands of Capri and Ischia. Amongst these classic walks the renowned ‘Path of the Gods’, with its breathtaking views over the whole Sorrento peninsula, has been called one of the most picturesque hiking trails in the whole of Italy.
