Amalfi Coast & Mountains

8 Days & 7 Nights 4.6 Read 49 reviews
  • Explore both the coast & mountains of Amalfi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Charming town of Ravello and its colourful gardens
  • Stay in the rural village of Agerola, experiencing Amalfi’s quieter side
  • Breath-taking views of the Mediterranean
  • Exploring the world-famous Isle of Capri at your own pace
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.

What To Expect

This Amalfi Coast holiday is similar to the Amalfi Coastal Trails tour but 2 nights in Positano are replaced with 2 nights in Agerola, giving you the opportunity to experience a quieter, more traditional side to the Amalfi Coast. This tour is rated moderate due to its regular elevation gains and losses and you will need to have walking experience. Some of the walks are more challenging due to the elevation gains and losses and the high number of stone staircases involved, so a head for heights and walking poles to support your knees are needed. If you enjoy coastal trails and mountain paths with far-reaching views, fragrant local wine, and fresh seafood, then this is the trip for you!

Trip Type:

Slower Adventures | Where walking and cycling meet easy-going exploring, our Slower Adventures are the perfect combination. Most days are filled with picturesque journeys with some free time to dive into the destination and experience the people, local food and culture as you go.


Multi Centre Walking | With a mix of loop and point-to-point walks stay 2 or 3 nights in one place which offers the chance to slow down and really explore a destination.

This trip is suitable for:

Solo Travellers

As a guide, we would suggest that the minimum age of traveller this holiday would be suitable for is: 12 Years

Ideal if you have an interest in:

  • Foodie
  • Wine
  • Coastal Walking
  • Accessible by Rail

Grade & Terrain

This holiday is graded moderate with walking days of up to 13km (8 mi) and has some more challenging walks that are optional with significant elevation gains and losses. This trip is suitable for those with a good level of fitness. 

On some walks, the path can be close to the cliff edges with sheer drops which would not be appropriate for people suffering with vertigo or a fear of heights. It should be noted that some sections include prolonged descents and ascents on stony stairs which can be tough on the knees, so we would strongly recommend taking walking poles and perhaps knee supports if needed. It’s best ahead of time to do some practice walks including stairs and ascents and descents like those you will experience on the trip whilst carrying your day bag. 

The terrain consists of footpaths, dirt tracks, stepped trails, lots of stone staircases, and some sections that are uneven underfoot. There may be some short sections of road walking, but not on busy roads or traffic routes. You will occasionally be following minor paved roads, mostly to get from the end of your walk to your hotel.


The route is not well way-marked. We provide access to the Macs Adventure Smartphone App upon which you can follow the route notes and downloaded GPS tracks on your phone.

When To Go

This trip is available to start on any day of the week from the beginning of April to the end of October. Please note that the summer months can be very hot for walking and we recommend that you take a hat, sunscreen and plenty of water if you decide to walk during these months. This tour does not run from the end of July to the end of August as this is when the area is the hottest and also the most difficult time to secure availability at the hotels.

Peak season availability: Please note that July and September are extremely busy times along the Amalfi Coast and early booking is essential (ideally 6 months in advance) in order to secure the best choice accommodation. If you are interested in travelling during these months, then we may require some flexibility regarding your dates and itinerary. We will do our best to provide a suitable alternative in line with our usual tour. In the instance that our usual accommodation is not available, a supplement will be payable. Thank you for your cooperation.

Spring in the Amalfi Coast is sublime and April, May and June are absolutely lovely. Autumn is probably a favourite time of year as the landscape is made up of gold and red pallet so September and October are unmissable.

We recommend that you fly to info Naples Airport as this is the closest to the Amalfi Coast. From there you can take a Curreri bus from outside the terminal to Sorrento which takes 1H15.

Another option when travelling between May and October and between Naples Airport and Amalfi is to take the Pintour shuttle bus. The journey takes about 1h.50 and timetables can be found on the Pintour website.

Getting from the End

From Praiano you can return to Naples by SITA bus to Sorrento and Curreri shuttle bus to Naples Airport or by SITA bus to Sorrento and Circumvesuviana Train to Naples Train Station and ALIBUSshuttle bus to Naples Airport.

Important Note: If desired, a private transfer from Naples Airport to Amalfi Coast (arrival) and from Praiano to Naples Airport (onward travel) can be included in this tour (additional costs apply). Please inform us at the time of booking if you would like to include these options.
