Guided Walking : Europe

Italy: The Amalfi Coast & Capri

Moderate Terrain with Challenging Sections: 4 - 8 miles daily

Italy: The Amalfi Coast & Capri

The Amalfi Coast is a sparkling mixture of ancient trails, Mediterranean views, and jet-setting towns stacked high on the soaring bluffs of the Sorrentine Peninsula. Here, chic Positano and elegant Ravello sit perched on limestone cliffs, a panorama of pastel houses, alfresco eateries, and baroque cathedrals fronting harbors of wooden boats. Time-worn trails wend through terraced vineyards and stands of olive trees, their names as iconic as their 100-mile views: the Path of the Gods, the Valley of the Mills, the Phoenician Steps of Anacapri. In the footsteps of past “Grand Tour” travelers, you explore 2,000-year-old Roman ruins and dine in family-owned restaurants beloved by the locals. Savor the region’s refined cuisine: fresh seafood, pillowy mozzarella di bufala, elegant pastries, and the sweet taste of limoncello. Round out your experience with an exclusive stay on Capri, an island of fine shops, hidden gardens, and dramatic mountain views.


Tour Highlights:
  • Explore the ancient streets, stone archways, and remarkably preserved temples of Pompeii, a city frozen at the moment of its destruction 2,000 years ago.
  • Along the celebrated Sentiero degli Dei (“Path of the Gods”), witness spectacular vistas: white cliffs, green grass, and the brilliant sapphire of the Mediterranean
  • Discover a hidden garden in the town of Ravello: the Villa Cimbrone’s wild roses and climbing vines hang on the cliff’s edge over the sea.
