Naples and Amalfi’s Coast - Italy Walking Tour

This walking tour in Naples and along the Amalfi Coast in Italy is an enjoyable experience for walkers. The Romans and Greeks were here before the growing of the Baroque Palaces and Churches of Spacca Napoli. The biggest artists were all attracted by the charm of Naples, since the early ages to the Romantic period.

From the old N'a Polis which was founded by Greeks, to the highest glory of the Baroque Age, the city and its surroundings fascinates every traveller, with its artistic treasures as well as its lovely climate and the beauty of the nature around.

Romans were not wrong when they choose Hercolanum and Baia as their privileged holiday resorts. In parallel with this 'dolce vita', the eruptions of the Vesuvius, the volcanic manifestations on the Phlegrean Fields and the frequent earthquakes fomented the people's faith in the proximity of the death's world and in the Gods. It is here, in fact, the cavern of the Sibille of Cuma, one of the most famous prophets of the Greek-Roman world. It is also here that mythology puts its most famous heroes, Enea and Ulysses, strictly linked with the region as well as Cape Misene, the Partenopean Sirens, Procida Island.

Day 3 - Trip by boat to Capri. From Marina Grande, your destination port, the hike leads today to the Hermitage of Santa Maria a Cetrella, crossing the Passetiello, a narrow passage between rock faces, overlooking the town of Capri. From the top you can enjoy a stunning panoramic view on the Island and on the Gulf of Naples, dominated by the Vesuvius.

Day 4 - Train transfer to Pompeii. Visit of Pompeii and of the Villa of the Mysteries. It is the biggest open air archaeological site of the world which is a great example of past human life.

Day 6 - Walk along the path which is still used by mules bringing wood to discover the 'Valle dei Mulini' (mills valley). This is the last part of the Torrent Canneto before it crosses the town of Amalfi. The Valley takes its name from the mills of the area used for the production of pasta.

Day 7 - From Agerola you start a panoramic hike on the Path of Gods, the track along the coast which was, until the XIX century, the only way to get from the small isolated villages to the tiny terraced fields and the pergola vineyards.
