Why this Walk?
Take footpaths that snake up through the mountains and lemon groves of Amalfi, a network of ancient pathways that lead through the clifftops to cobble-street towns and smaller villages nestled into the valleys and forested peaks. The ‘Sentiero degli Dei’ (Path of the Gods) is a common highlight of this route, a clifftop path with awe-inspiring views over the island of Capri and the Mediterranean, leading to the colourful village of Positano. Photogenic clifftop villages like Positano are one of many compelling draws for visitors to Amalfi. You’ll also get the opportunity to see another side of the beautiful island of Capri, roaming the winding hillsides to historic landmarks like the ancient villa of the Emporer Tiberius. By experiencing the Amalfi Coast on foot, you’re enjoying the best of the popular towns and sights of the area as well as visiting places steeped in tradition and local culture.
