ACCOMMODATION & DINING DESKTOP

During this tour, you will spend each night in small family-run guesthouses and 3* hotels. Chosen for their location, facilities and history, each accommodation is used to welcoming walkers. Many of them will be family-run so your hosts are very knowledgeable about the Amalfi region and they will always be happy to chat with you about the history of the Amalfi region. Of course, you can always call us too should you need anything during your walk. As Amalfi is a very popular destination, we may have to book another similar accommodation of equal standard. We will discuss these options with you during the booking process.

You will be provided with 7 breakfasts.  You can choose from the array of options in Amalfi for your lunch and dinner. Lunches are available at various cafes or food stores daily. There are numerous places to get dinner each night, your hosts will give you a list of recommendations if you’d like. If you have any food allergies or intolerances, please let us know at the time of booking so we can let your hosts know. Should you have severe food allergies, it’s always worth bringing a few of your own snacks with you.

GENERAL INFO

AVAILABILITY

This walk is available from late April to the end of June and mid-August through to October.

Not available from 1st July – 22nd August.

From April into June days are warm and sunny (up to 30 degrees) with the flowers in full bloom. You may find that earlier in the season you can encounter a few rainy days, but generally, the piazza’s buzz with life and are perfect for enjoying an al fresco dinner. From late August into September the summer crowds have thinned and the intense summer heat has cooled. Being on the coast, it isn’t uncommon for Amalfi to experience thunderstorms during summer days, so you should always be prepared for changeable conditions.

THE WALKING

A moderate active lifestyle makes the walking enjoyable, an exercise regime of 2 to 3 times a week is needed. The daily routes you will follow are well defined. Many sections of the walk will have prolonged sections of stone staircases that you will ascend and descend. Many will have a handrail (though not always). You will also walk along forest trails and the Path of the Gods which in some parts is quite exposed. The Path of the Gods is a balcony cliff path walk, so if you suffer from severe vertigo this day of walking is not for you (you can use the ferry instead to travel between Amalfi and Positano). You will be walking on forest trails and through the towns and villages of the Amalfi coast. It is commonplace in Italy that there are no separate footpaths (even in the towns) which means you will often be walking on the roads. Please always be mindful of all road users when doing so. For each of the walks, you will be provided with daily walk notes, a map and the GPX tracks if you require to use them for your own device.
