Italy: Pompeii, Capri & the Amalfi Coast

You won’t find anyone who can bring this iconic region to life like Country Walkers. Our certified local guides hail from Naples, Positano, Ravello, and Capri—bringing you authentic insights you won’t find on your own. Among the ancient ruins of Pompeii, we’ll lead you along secluded paths, escaping the throngs of tourists to discover hidden, lesser-known sights—returning to view the main attractions after other visitors have departed. Escape from the clamor of crowds on the island of Capri as our expert local guide leads you off the beaten path—viewing historic sites and spectacular ocean vistas along the way. Stroll through an untouched chestnut forest near Ravello—stopping to enjoy a picnic lunch of local specialties. All along the Amalfi coast, you’ll find vigorous hikes with rewarding views—and sumptuous accommodations to return to each night. To experience this remarkable Italian region without the crowds—well, that takes the kind of deep insider knowledge only Country Walkers knows how to deliver. 

Highlights

  • Stroll the stunning gardens immortalized by Wagner in his opera Parsifal at the Villa Rufolo.
  • Explore the ruins of Pompeii on foot, learning about daily life in this ancient city before Mount Vesuvius buried it under a blanket of volcanic ash.
  • Enjoy striking panoramic views and a tasty picnic lunch during a hike along the “Path of the Gods.”
  • Stop by the Museo della Carta and discover the ancient art of papermaking.
  • Design and craft your own ceramic tile, under the supervision of an expert, local artisan in Minori.

Positive Impact

Country Walkers is proud to support Soccorso Alpino e Speleologico della Campania with a donation on behalf of each guest on this tour. In addition to food, we also put safety first on the Amalfi Coast. The trails and ridges of the Sorrentine Peninsula, above the busy coast, are surprisingly unpopulated and represent a large area for the local mountain search and rescue corps to service. Mainly relying on local volunteers and donations, your contributions help the rescue team obtain and maintain equipment for rapid emergency response to visitors and locals alike.

Itinerary

Sat, Apr 26 to Mon, May 5 - 2025

Show Itinerary:

Your vacation is about to begin! Spend your first night aloft and arrive ready for an unforgettable trip.

Start off your first day in Naples right by having a Country Walkers representative greet you at the airport. A complimentary car service will whisk you to your centrally located hotel. From here, you are perfectly positioned to explore this charming city at your leisure.

Pompeii walk; 2 miles, easy. Ravello; 1 mile easy

After enjoying an included breakfast your guides meet you at 9:00 a.m. in the lobby of your Naples hotel. They’ll be wearing Country Walkers shirts. Please ensure that your luggage is in the lobby and you’re dressed for walking. Walking shoes or sneakers with sturdy tread are required.

After an orientation and safety briefing led by your guides, you’ll board a private motorcoach and travel to Pompeii. Upon arrival, meet a local expert for a guided tour of the site. At dawn on August 25, 79 AD, the violent eruption of Mount Vesuvius caused the total destruction of Pompeii. In just a few moments, all the residents of the city perished, doing whatever they could to survive. Tremendous amounts of ash and cinder covered and preserved the scene precisely as it was at that instant. That’s why, today, we know how Romans lived 2,000 years ago. Your guide will reveal, for example, that posters were used for advertising elections and supporting party candidates, and that the word “candidate” comes from candid, the name of a special tunic worn by those running for office to prove they had no criminal record. Lunch is on your own in Pompeii.

Early in the afternoon, shuttle to your hotel in Ravello and settle in. Later in the afternoon, there is still time to roam the terraces of Ravello with your guides, beginning in the peaceful, pedestrian-only center. Admire the white-faced Duomo in Piazza Vescovado and the Arabic-Norman towers of Villa Rufolo, where German composer Richard Wagner was inspired to create music for the scene in Klingsor’s magic garden in his opera, Parsifal.

Tonight, enjoy a welcome cocktail on the panoramic terrace of your hotel before moving to the dining room for dinner.

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

Ravello circuit; 5 miles, easy to moderate, 1,000-ft. elevation gain and loss. Amalfi; 1 mile, easy

After breakfast on the terrace, join your guides for a hike departing directly from the hotel on foot. Leave Ravello through the medieval gates to the north of the town where you are immediately immersed in a rural landscape. Climb to an area dedicated to the cultivation of chestnuts. Reach the locality of Passo O’Lupo (literally, Pass of the Wolf), and enjoy a simple picnic lunch to refuel you for the descent towards Fontana Caruso, the setting for the English playwright, E. M. Forster’s work entitled “History of a Panic.” Descend on foot to Ravello, where you have some free time to relax by the hotel’s scenic swimming pool, or shop before reuniting late afternoon with your guides and travel companions. Perhaps you’ll opt to sit down at a sidewalk café and try a delizia al limone—a confection made from Limoncello-soaked sponge cake and lemon custard—or a slice of pastiera, a cake made with ricotta cheese and ground wheat that’s been soaked for several days in running water.

Travel to seaside Amalfi where you’ll stop at the Museo della Carta, a unique museum housed in an ancient paper mill, to learn how paper was made from rags. During the 15th century, Amalfi’s paper was so prized that many foreign authors demanded to be published in Naples just so they could use the coveted material. This artisanal tradition continues today, and exquisite handmade paper is available in the museum’s gift shop. Enjoy leisure time to visit the beautiful Duomo and stroll along the city’s charming side streets—which should be refreshingly free from the daytime crowds.

Regroup for a memorable dinner of local specialties at a favorite seaside restaurant.

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Ravello to Minori; 3.5 miles, easy to moderate, 1,200-ft. elevation loss. Optional independent walk Minori to Ravello; 1 mile, moderate, 1,200-ft. elevation gain

Depart Ravello on foot, passing by remarkable monuments and churches. And then, the dramatic green shades of the Dragon Valley come into view with the sea in the distance. Ravello is famous for its churches, and you’ll pass many on today’s hike. The 11th-century San Giovanni del Toro church is one fine example. The route is initially paved following the Valley of Reghinna Minor, downhill. Your route then meanders on a well-beaten pathway through a rural landscape of woodlands, passing former paper mills and a few scattered houses. You may occasionally pass pack horses and mules, a transportation method used for ages on the Amalfi coast to carry heavy loads up and down the mountains. You’ll arrive in Minori before lunch with time to enjoy the beach and perhaps take a dip in the sea. Feel free to explore the Roman villa (no charge) en route. Founded by the Etruscans in the 7th century BCE, Minori was a favorite Roman summer residence. In Minori, experience the local art of ceramics in an included hands-on class where you craft your own tile under the supervision of a local artisan and savor a light lunch in the studio.

Early this afternoon, shuttle or walk back to Ravello (maybe popping into the Sal de Riso pastry shop for a decadent pastry to fuel you on your walk!). The 1,000-step climb through the peaceful hamlet of Torello is worth it for the views.  Back in Ravello, continue your exploration of the city on foot perhaps with a visit to the Villa Cimbrone gardens, where walking paths lead through meticulously maintained greenery and past elegant statues to the famous Terrace of Infinity. Take a guided tour of Villa Rufolo, whose beautiful cascading gardens inspired composer Richard Wagner to write the second act of the opera Parsifal. Check the concert schedule in advance and don’t miss the extraordinary opportunity to take part in the Ravello Festival. Symphonic, chamber, or organ concerts are held in spectacular sites throughout the season, typically in the evening. Purchase your ticket online or at the ticket office on the main square. Take a break for gelato at Il Baffone, easy to spot on via Roma alleyway just a few minutes’ walk from the main piazza. Tonight, keep your eyes open for a restaurant for dinner on your own.

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch

Agerola to Nocelle; 4 miles, moderate, 600-ft. elevation gain

Today, shuttle to Agerola, Italy’s dairy capital, where you’ll gradually descend on foot along a scenic stretch between Biscotto Caves and Nocelle known as the “Path of the Gods” for its heavenly views. The path is well-marked and offers views of Capri and the islets of Li Galli, or Sirenuse, where the mythical Sirens attracted seafarers with their melodious songs. Near Colle Serra, where you cross the pass, stop to enjoy an included picnic lunch prepared by a local farmer and your guides. Expect a simple and authentic meal of fresh vegetables picked from a local garden, sausages, and fresh mozzarella enjoyed in a setting that affords amazing views of the sea and cliffs.

You then continue down to Nocelle, where the “Path of the Gods” ends, and walk a relaxing paved road to meet your driver and transportation. With your guides, drive to Sant’Agnello di Sorrento. Settle in at your deluxe historical hotel, a former Jesuit monastery and the oldest hotel on the peninsula. Stroll the manicured gardens or the terrace overlooking the bay, enjoy the swimming pool, or maybe take advantage of the private beach for a dip in the blue waters.

Tonight, reconvene for dinner at your hotel’s fine restaurant.

Included Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Capri walk; 4 miles, easy to moderate. Optional walk to Augustus Garden; 2 miles, easy to moderate

This morning, board a hydrofoil to ferry across the Sorrento Peninsula to the celebrated island of Capri. Arriving at the famous piazzetta, the hub of the island, you’ll set out along an easy walking path leading to Villa Jovis. As you stroll, inhale the enchanting aroma of jasmine and take in views of manicured gardens full of flowers. Built by Emperor Tiberius in the first century AD, Villa Jovis was a strategic point where Tiberius could dominate and control the opposite coast. Enjoy incredible views from here including the Jump of Tiberius—a sheer cliff soaring more than 1,100 feet—the infamous site from which Tiberius had his enemies thrown into the sea.

Continue walking through a thick Mediterranean park where strawberry trees, myrtle, clematis, honeysuckle, laurel, wild asparagus, and cyclamen thrive. After passing by Villa Lysis, built by an eccentric French count in 1905, you can choose to explore Capri’s inviting shops and cafés or continue to Arco Naturale and Grotta di Matermania. These two rock formations are located in a natural cove used to honor Cybele, the Magna Mater, or Great Mother, of the gods. Find the cove down a long flight of stairs leading through a thick forest. Be sure to take time to stop for lunch on your own in one of the island’s cozy restaurants or to picnic in the shade of a garden overlooking the azure sea.

Your small group will gather after lunch and walk to the eastern rim of Capri. Here, you’ll see the amazing, and famous, Faraglioni cliffs, three rocky colossi protruding from the sea. Then, venture to the Augustus Gardens for gorgeous views of the cliffs and the curled Via Krupp. The trail ends at Capri’s shopping district. From here, loop back to the piazzetta, where you began your walk.

There is time to discover the fascinating area around the piazzetta before returning via hydrofoil (or ferry) to the mainland and Sorrento. En route, take in the panoramic vistas of the Amalfi Coast from the sea. Walk back or shuttle to your hotel and save some time to enjoy the hotel amenities, including a large manicured garden with a swimming pool and private beach.

Dinner is on your own tonight. Perhaps you’ll try Gnocchi alla Sorrentina, made with a tomato sauce and fiordilatte (local mozzarella).

Included Meals: Breakfast

Sant’Agata, Torca, and Malacoccola; 2.5-4 miles, moderate, 700-900 ft. elevation gain

Today, you’ll enjoy a leisurely breakfast and time for an independent exploration of Sorrento. Choose to relax poolside with a book this morning, or visit Sorrento on foot or by shuttle. Among the town’s many attractions are the Museo Correale, called the “most beautiful provincial museum in Italy,” the museum is housed in the summer residence of the Correale family, and its exhibits span 24 rooms on four floors. Explore Villa Fiorentino, a lovely, restored residence with a gorgeous garden. Enjoy an independent lunch at one of the many cafes and restaurants in town. Afterward, taste the flavor of the day at Gelateria Da David (named for the owner, Davide).

Reunite as a group after lunch, and drive to Sant’Agata dei Due Golfi, where you’ll follow the red-and-white markings of the Alta via dei Monti Lattari trail. This path winds upwards into a beautiful chestnut forest. As the woods open up, masses of multicolored, aromatic flowers come into view. Right before the promontory of Malacoccola, the view of the entire Gulf of Salerno opens before you. Your next stop is an organic family farm (which you reach on foot, or via your dedicated minibus). You’ll visit their impressive vegetable garden and step into the rooms where olives, tomatoes, eggplants, hot peppers, and much more are made into delicious preserves and liquors. Relax with an aperitivo while the sun sets, and/or roll up your sleeves during a hands-on cooking lesson to assist with the meal preparation. Afterward, feast on gourmet specialties during a festive farewell dinner overlooking the cliffs of Sorrento.

Included Meals: Breakfast, Dinner

This morning, enjoy breakfast and spend another day at Grand Hotel Cocumella. Take a break, relax, and maybe visit downtown Sorrento for some last-minute shopping and exploring.

Lunch and dinner are on your own with plenty of options nearby. We provide detailed city information to help you plan your day.

Included Meals: Breakfast

After an included breakfast this morning complimentary transportation will be provided to Naples Capodichino Airport based on your departure time.

This Country Walkers excursion exceeded our expectations. The guides, Vincenzo and Alessandra, offered the perfect balance of knowledge, logistical organization, competence, and local insight with a delightful mix of fun, enthusiasm, warmth and care. The selection of locations, hikes, attractions, meals, and hotels was exceptional. The mix of both formal dining experiences and the on-trail meals (hosted by local farmers and business operators) offered a truly memorable way to become immersed in the rich culture of the area.
