Discover the highlights of Italy's Amalfi coast on foot. To extend your adventure and lower your impact, consider taking the train to this trip.

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 highlight of this Amalfi Coast guided walking holiday is saved till last with arguably the world's best coastal walk: the 'Walk of the Gods'. Away from the trails we partake in a favourite traditional pastime and sample incredible food and wine just like the Italians do.

Why travel with us?

The perfect combination of idyllic coastal views, heritage sites, and picturesque towns make the Amalfi Coast our most popular destination for walking. We 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 ensures everyone has a wonderful stay.

Responsible Travel

Tourism can be a real help to local communities, providing income, positive cultural exchanges, and a financial incentive to protect their natural environment. Ours is a 'total approach' to responsible tourism, covering everything from the way we plan and operate our trips to the practices of Exodus as a company. 

On this trip, we will spend the nights in the family-run Hotel Le Due Torri in Agerola, a relatively unknown area of Amalfi, bringing income to an area that does not usually benefit from tourism. The hotel recently installed solar panels which provides hot water for their rooms and all food provided are homemade, using locally produced and sourced goods where possible. Additionally, clients often have the opportunity to learn from their hosts how to prepare a traditional Neapolitan pizza during one of the evenings.

As a walking holiday, we actively encourage clients to interact with the locals, visit local cafes and bars, support local craft and produce to discover what life is really like along the Amalfi Coast. Walking trips have very little detrimental impact on the environment and local residents as it is a quiet, low impact activity requiring comparatively little resources to support.

In March 2019, Exodus Travels launched the Exodus Travels Foundation where we support initiatives all around the world. But it cannot exist without travellers who care. Get involved or learn more about what Responsible Travel means to Exodus here

Itinerary

Agerola
to
Agerola
  • Day 1

    Start Agerola.

    Those on group flights fly to Naples, where they will be met by their tour leader on arrival. A transfer of approximately 1 hour 20 minutes takes us to the Hotel Due Torri, our base for the week in the village of Bomerano, on the Agerola plains above the Amalfi Coast. Enjoy a warm welcome from our local hosts, the Acampora family, before settling in. Land only clients can arrive at any time, although we do recommend to join the group at the airport as public transport options to the hotel are limited.

    Meals included: Dinner
  • Day 2

    An impressive walk to top of Monte Tre Calli for great wide open views of the coastline.

    From the hotel, it's a short stroll to the village square (or in the case of Bomerano, a triangle) and the start of today’s walk. The circular route provides a good chance to stretch the legs; following a mixture of paths and tracks we ascend to the top of Monte Tre Calli to be rewarded with spectacular wide-open views of the jagged coastline and seemingly endless blue sea. The Agerola Plain and the village of Bomerano are laid out below us and on a clear day, we can see as far as the famous island of Capri, a haven and idyllic hideaway for many celebrated artists and writers over the past 200 years. After admiring the majestic scenery descend to Bomerano and enjoy some rest time before a hearty dinner.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 3

    Follow mule tracks and steps down to Amalfi; free afternoon to explore the famous cathedral or the Paper Mill Museum.

    Start walking towards Amalfi, a town popular with the British since Edwardian times when the upper classes favoured it as a pleasant place to spend their winters. The route has a downhill bias, following the path from Bomerano at 700m to the shores of the Mediterranean, accompanied by wonderful coastal views. There are sections of steps today (approx. 2000 in total), but there are also plenty of opportunities to rest and go at your own pace. On arrival, you will see the large Duomo (Cathedral) dominating the town with its brightly-coloured tiled cupola (dome), which along with the baroque facade and interior, is a typical example of regional architecture. Take some time to explore the town, swim in the small bay, or enjoy a well-earned gelato before taking the transfer back to Bomerano.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 4

    Drive to Bay of Naples; visit fascinating ruins of Pompeii and take an optional walk up the vast crater of Mt Vesuvius.

    Transfer to the Bay of Naples, the area spanning between the region’s capital city, Naples, and the town famed for its lemon groves, Sorrento. Situated on the lower foothills of the volcano dominating the Gulf, Pompeii was a thriving port town until Vesuvius’ catastrophic eruption spanning two days in 79AD during which the city was buried in ash and pumice. Lost for 1700 years, Pompeii is now a UNESCO World Heritage site as the perfectly preserved remains give us an amazing insight into life in a Roman city, complete with bathhouses, bakeries, and homes – some of which still have walls adorned with detailed frescoes. You may take some time to explore the site this morning, perhaps opting for a detailed tour accompanied by a local guide. After lunch, travel by bus high up onto the slopes of Vesuvius to view the volcanic crater. Depending on weather conditions, it may be possible to take one of the many extended walks around the caldera and beyond, led by an expert volcanologist (optional).

    Meals included: Breakfast Dinner
  • Day 5

    Walk from Ravello to Amalfi through the forests of the Valle delle Ferriere natural reserve.

    Today's walk starts in Ravello, a town much favoured by the Bloomsbury set and other artists and intellectuals due to its secluded location and inspirational scenery. Before setting off for the walk we have some free time to explore the town and visit Villa Cimbrone or Villa Rufolo with their meticulously landscaped gardens and breath-taking views out to the sea (optional).  The route today is mostly downhill but it does include a considerable amount of steps. After descending and taking a quick stop in the village of Pontone, we continue through wooden bridges and shady paths carpeted with wild flowers in season, to the beautiful moss-clad waterfalls within the closed gates of the Valle delle Ferriere National Park. Finally, following the stream gently downwards through lemon groves, past the shells of former paper factories (a major local industry from the 12th to 19th centuries) and mediaeval ironworks we reach Amalfi.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 6

    Free day to relax or take a boat to Capri, visit Naples or Herculaneum (all optional).

    Today we have a day at leisure to relax at the hotel or go down to the seafront. The hotel also offers private transfers (payable locally) to the most popular attractions in the region not covered during the rest of the week, including the city of Herculaneum. Also destroyed during the disaster of 79AD, Herculaneum was buried in mud rather than ash and it is said that this lead to the site being even better preserved than the bigger Pompeii. You might instead choose to take a ferry to the chic island of Capri and the funicular through lemon groves up to Capri town. These optional excursions can be arranged locally by your leader. Alternatively, spend the free day by the pool or in true Italian style in a café, sipping espresso and watching the world go by!

    Meals included: Breakfast
  • Day 7

    'Walk of the Gods' with superb panoramic views all the way to Positano; return by boat to Amalfi; try some locally-made Mozzarella cheese.

    A fitting finale to the week is one of the world's finest day walks. Leaving the hotel it's a short stroll through the quiet village of Bomerano before we join the ‘Sentiero degli Dei’ (Walk of the Gods), thus named as it provides some of the most evocative views in the world, of ragged cliffs speckled with tiny villages and extensive views of the sparkling Mediterranean sea. The route follows undulating hills, carpeted with flowers in season, the contours of the land, and the coast. The trail is broken by insights into local life, passing shepherds huts and ancient stone houses carved into the limestone before we descend a long series of steps to the colourful Positano, an almost vertical town clinging to the rock face of a sheltered bay. Take some time to explore the alleyways lined with wisteria and designer boutiques or have a dip in the clear water of the beachfront before returning to Bomerano by boat and bus (seasonal) in the late afternoon. During the week many meals will have included some delicious local smoked mozzarella cheese and before dinner, we will have the chance to see how it is made and taste the mouth-wateringly fresh final product.

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 8

    End Agerola.

    Trip ends in Bomerano.

Vegetarians are well catered for in Italy.

Weather

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 to what you may find on a moderate walking trip.

The terrain and type of path will vary from man-made paved tracks and 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 knee 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 there is high demand for our Amalfi tours. As such, it’s likely there will be more than one Exodus group at the Hotel Due Torri. The hotel is also open to non Exodus guests. Our team of leaders are well used to this and any addition groups are either on a different tour or follow an alternative itinerary. This includes the same excursions but taken in a different order, usually reverse.
It is also worth noting that during the hight season, usually May to September, popular towns along the Amalfi coast such as Positano, Amalfi itself and the island of Capri, can also be quite busy.

Following a review of all our trips we have categorised this trip as generally not suitable for persons of reduced mobility. However if you are a regular traveller on such trips, please contact customer services to discuss the trip and your personal condition.

Accommodation

Hotel Due Torri from outside the main entrance

We spend 7 nights at the 3-star Hotel Due Torri in Bomerano, a small village in the municipality of Agerola set high above the Amalfi Coast at an altitude of approximately 700m. Run by the warm and welcoming Acampora family, the Hotel Due Torri is well known for its great local cuisine, providing authentic dishes of the Campania region as well as fun pizza-making demonstrations. All rooms have en suite facilities, air conditioning, TV with international channels, and free Wi-Fi.

A limited number of superior rooms (with facilities including Jacuzzi bath, power showers, and fridge) are also available for a supplement payable pre-departure. Please ask your sales consultant for further info.

Being higher up in the hills the property offers the benefit of cooler nights, although beaches are not too far away and there is a small outdoor pool (usually open from mid-April to mid-October, weather dependent). The village is generally quiet and provides a relaxing contrast to the busier towns by the sea.

On occasion, if the hotel is full you might be offered (upon booking) to stay at an alternative accommodation located within walking distance from the Due Torri. Guests staying at alternative accommodation will still make use of all the facilities of Hotel Due Torri, including the pool and restaurant.

    Fabulous holiday

    From the day I booked, Exodus were totally professional. I was greeted at the airport by the very friendly and helpful guide Tony and so a wonderful week started. I was lucky enough to have a wonder group of 16 people of a similar ability, so each day ran smoothly. On one day, the planned route had to be changed due to a land fall, but an alternative route was found. Exodus ensure their walkers' safety at all times and Tony made sure that everyone felt included. Vesuvius was breath-taking and the views were out of this world. On our free day, all of us went across to Capri and enjoyed the island at our own pace. The hotel was friendly, clean and e were lucky enough to get a dip in the pool. The pizza and tiramisu demonstrations were great, as by then we had got to know each other so it all the more enjoyable to watch our friend making the food.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Every day was wonderful, but Vesuvius and Pompeii were stunning, the Path of The Gods was also lovley.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Tony was a great guide, he chatted, helped and guided us - 3 of us are booking again

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Read the guidance notes, buy good boots, train before you go.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Have already booked the Sardinia trio for October 2022

    Stepping up (and down)

    A very good walking area with magnificent views on good days. The week is full on with some extra events thrown in which we enjoyed. The hotel is comfortable and the food prepared by chef is very good. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area and looked after us well.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Vesuvius, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Walk of the Gods

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Very good leader always keeping the group together, giving us regular breathers (which we needed) and looking out for the well being of the group members. Very knowledgeable about the area.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be prepared for a LOT of steps, they are not kidding when they say in the trip notes there are 1500 (we suspect there are more) and they vary in construction, walking poles for the preservation of knees essential. If you get the chance to walk the rim of Vesuvius take it, good grip shoes/boots and poles will easily get you up the short scramble to the rim itself. We thought about going to Herculaneum on our free day but we actually did that on the way to the airport which was far better. The trip to Capri which we actually opted for on that day was well worth it.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Personally I would grade some of the walks 3 rather than 2 especially Amalfi and Monte Tre Calli.

    Walking the Amalfi Coast

    A great area to explore. In my view the holiday should be graded moderate due to the terrain and topography. By its very nature this coast is steep and there are gradients everywhere. Every walk involves thousand of steps. So prospective travellers should be aware. The family run three star hotel due Torri is lovely set in a pretty village Bomerano. Good food and comfortable rooms. We did find the dining room very noisy though. Picnics are good and tasty. As usual everything was extremely well organised by Exodus and our lovely guide Teresa was superb.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Visiting Herculaneum and Ravello.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Superb!! Could not fault her.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Please see above about my grading opinion. We are fit but found the walks tough as did many of our group. That said the views are stunning and well worth it.

    The Real Walk of the Gods

    A very full week of walking and yes, lovely food and wine at the hotel. Amalfi, Positano, Mt Vesuvius and Pompeii, walks in the hills and a touch of coffee culture are the highlights of this trip.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The first view of Positano from the Walk of the Gods is mesmerising and stopped everyone in their tracks. Smiles all round and a great photo opportunity. The winding path brings sight of over-hanging cliffs, running streams, unusual flowers and the best sea view.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our group leader was excellent - she had a detailed knowledge of the area and set a steady and considered pace for the walking. She had a lovely manner, engaged with the whole group and managed the weather-related changes to the itinerary very effectively.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Be prepared for the "moderate" end of the walks - nothing over straining but the walks might leave you needing a nap in the late afternoon!

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    If you don't use the free day to take a boat to Capri, or the bus to Sorrento, consider a trip to Naples Archeological Museum for a close-up look at the fantastic relics from Pompeii and Herculaneum.

    Amazing Amalfi

    This was my first trip abroad since covid and loved it! The walks were amazing, Vania our group leader brilliant, Bomerano and the family hotel a great base and camaraderie of our group was lovely. We luckily had perfect weather for this holiday and as it was early in the season not many other tourists about so almost felt we had it to ourselves. Some of the walks are pretty challenging but so worth it!

    Veriano was absolutely excellent, he was very friendly, very helpful and his local knowledge was first class, I can't speak highly enough about him.

    There's a lot of steep descents so walking poles could be useful for this. Walking boots were OK but it was all on paths so good walking trainers would be my preferred foot wear. Some of the paths were quite narrow with severe drops at the side so you'd need to be comfortable with that.

    Trip spoilt because there were two groups

    The trip was completely spoilt for me because there were two Exodus groups on the same trip and much interaction between the two groups. I have been going on Exodus holidays for over 20 years because I enjoy small groups and the chance to experience the local ambience. On this holiday, I felt as though I was part of a British coach party abroad. The walking was superb but I was relieved when the holiday was over.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Pompeii

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Vania was brilliant.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Expect more than one Exodus group on your holiday, even out of season. Also Exodus clients may be the only guests in the hotel. Be prepared for cold weather including snow and bitingly cold winds, even in March. Walking around the crater of Vesuvius may not be possible due to snow and ice. The food in the hotel was plentiful but uninspiring. No dish was worthy of a photo to send back to the family. The walking is on the high end of leisurely/moderate.

    A great out of season week in Italy

    This is a deservedly popular Exodus holiday with a lot of activity packed in to a week. The walking is not especially difficult and has a downhill bias, with many steps to encounter. The Amalfi coast is very scenic and photogenic. Vesuvius dominates the landscape of the Bay of Naples and visits to Pompeii and Vesuvius are naturally included, although we think that a better pairing would be Vesuvius and Herculaneum, the latter being arguably (even) more interesting than Pompeii.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    The walking is a necessary part of the holiday to offset the copious quantity of excellent Italian food, wine, gelato etc!! But this holiday also includes trips to Pompeii and Vesuvius which are "must see" sights for those even remotely interested in archeology and history. It was perhaps a pity that the trip to Pompeii was so short (barely 2 hours) but in fairness it was an extremely cold day. The optional trip to Herculaneum was also outstanding - it's a difficult choice to make about whether to do that or go to Capri. I also really enjoyed the visit to the paper factory in Amalfi - a most unusual experience for anyone interested in the early manufacturing processes of paper. No review of an Exodus holiday is complete without mentioning that we shared the holiday with a lovely group of people - our thanks to all for the company and friendship.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Vania was an excellent leader - attentive, sociable, highly personable and clearly popular with hotel staff and others. Her walking style was relaxed, and she allowed people to walk at their own pace whilst still keeping the group together.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    This is a great out-of-season holiday - I suspect walking over the very hot summer months could be very tiring. Also, the tourist venues of Pompeii and Herculaneum are so much quieter. However, it can get very cold in Bomerano (snow on the hills), so bring hats, gloves and down jackets in the winter or early Spring weeks.

    Christmas Cracker

    This trip exceeded my expectations and is one of the best Christmases I have ever had. On Christmas Day, we walked the Path of the Gods under a cloudless blue sky and enjoyed spectacular views of the Amalfi coastline. During five full days walking, we ascended and descended the hillsides, winding our way along pretty pathways and villages, passing through woodland and jumping narrow streams. All the while, we were aware of the impossibly dramatic and beautiful view spread out below us and the coastline fringed with the turquoise sea. We were able to visit Ravello with its picturesque Villa Cimbrone gardens; Amalfi with its stunning cathedral and chic shops and Positano with its wide shoreline (although it was Christmas Day and nothing was open). On one day, we walked around the rim of Vesuvius and even ventured into the crater (quite hot) and followed that with a guided tour of Pompeii. On the last day, some of us took a taxi to Naples to visit the Archeological Museum and sample a perfect pizza from the town of its invention.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    Driving back to the hotel along the winding coast road and witnessing the most spectacular sunset I have ever seen.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Our tour leader, Veriano Verde, was excellent and went out of his way to make everything enjoyable for us. He has a good knowledge of the area so was able to tell us lots of interesting things about Agerola. Throughout the trip, he was unfailingly pleasant and helpful. He even gave up his day off to take a group of people up the mountain for a walk that we had had to forego because of the heavy fog.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Take your walking poles and plenty of thin layers as the weather can be cool in the mountains and then hot on the coast.

    Is there anything else you would like to add?

    Go on this holiday - you won't regret it.
