Amalfi Coast & Mountains

Explore this beautiful region of Italy, Amalfi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Walk along its coastline visiting exquisite villages and explore the rural communities in the mountains high above the coast. 

Huge cliffs tumble hundreds of metres into the turquoise Mediterranean Sea to create an indescribably beautiful coastline. Agerola, a village situated on a high plain, is surrounded by a dramatic landscape rising steeply from the shore to rugged mountains. 

Your walking tour continues to the fishing village of Praiano, exploring the most marvellous section of the “Footpath of Gods”, which takes you through unrivalled landscapes.
