A self-guided hike along the Amalfi Coast from Amalfi to Sorrento, taking in Ravello, Praiano, Positano and the Sentiero degli Dei (Footpath of the Gods). Our own version allows you to walk from Amalfi to Sorrento without using a single bus or taxi - the only company that offers this!
Grade: Medium to easy (multigraded). Positano to Sant' Agata via Monte Commune day Hard.
ALONG THE SIREN COAST - Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento
Wild mountains - old fishing towns clinging to a steep rocky coastline. Spectacular paths with views for miles. Bathing in little coves. This is a truly multigraded walk for the hardy strider and, courtesy of the peninsula bus-system, the recreational walker too. The route shows both faces of the peninsula – the craggy scenery of the eastern (Amalfi) end and the more accessible charms of the western tip. The 7-night (medium) version starts with 3 nights in Amalfi (including Ravello), then works along the coast via Positano and the western promontories, arriving in bustling Sorrento, overlooking the bay of Naples and Vesuvius. Stay extra nights in any of our hotels en route, and perhaps extend your stay with visits to Capri, Pompeii, Herculaneum and Naples - all possible from Sorrento.
Why not consider a few nights (minimum stay of 2 nights and 3 in high season) on Capri at the end of walk? On Foot has devised some great walks to help you explore the island to the full. Walked by On Foot staff: Simon, Mary and Emma
