Hiking Italy’s Romantic Neopolitan Coast

Walking the Amalfi Coast is an opportunity to see another side of Italy’s most celebrated, romantic region.

  • Hike the famous ‘Sentiero degli Dei’ (Path of the Gods) to the famous village of Positano, nestled in between the surrounding cliffs
  • Walk clifftop paths along the island of Capri, with spectacular views over the Gulf of Naples, Mt Vesuvius and the surrounding Mediterranean
  • The birthplace of some of Italy’s most famous cuisine, including Pizza and Limoncello
  • Cross paths with some of the most famous colourful villages of Amalfi, as well as lesser-known towns and villages, away from the tourist trail

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.

The Path

The route is well-waymarked, particularly the distinctive red and white signposts that lead walkers over the famous ‘Sentiero degli Dei’. The former is a memorable section of this walk, but also an exemplary case of the clifftop routes that feature around the coast of Amalfi, from which you have some of the most enviable vantage points for Capri, the Gulf of Naples and colourful hillside towns – such as Positano.

Junctions of old mule tracks, terraced vineyards and lemon groves snake around the hillsides of Amalfi, with a few crossings over road as you follow the old routes that served as the means of trade and distribution between farms, villages and towns.

The Accommodation

Staying in historic towns, you can expect the places you stay to have a refined, stately character, where you're sure of a warm welcome from the many family-run hotels in this region after long days out walking along the coast.

Accommodation is on a bed and breakfast basis, with all rooms having private bathrooms. On each night's stay there will be many opportunities to visit local restaurants or taste a selection of wine from the region. Depending on the time of year you visit, routes may be slightly altered to fit alternative accommodation where our usual options are booked up (mainly the high summer season). In choosing alternative accommodation, we strive to maintain similar standards and quality.
