Hike along the cliffside paths built into the rocky coastline between Ravello and Positano, an area famous for its stupendous vistas and colorful villages perched above the sea. You start the tour with two nights in Ravello, acclaimed as the most beautiful town in Italy. Then onward to the remote mountain village of Agerola for one night, well placed for the magnificent walk into Positano along the aptly named “Path of the Gods”. From Positano you take the ferry to the paradisiacal isle of Capri. And along the way, we provide you with all the tools you need to help you put your spirit of adventure into action.
Here is an outline of a suggested daily itinerary. You can shorten or lengthen this tour to fit your travel dates. For further information, please request a detailed itinerary.
- Day one: Your tour rep meets you in Naples and transfers you to Ravello where you can enjoy an orientation walk around the town.
- Day two: Today’s walk takes you through lemon groves down into the town of Amalfi, an ancient maritime republic famed today for its limoncello.
