Grade & Terrain

This holiday is graded moderate because although the daily walks are relatively short the terrain is hilly and summer temperatures can be high. Most of the route follows dirt tracks and footpaths although you will be following minor roads occasionally. Be warned that some of the walks involve lots of steps and steep climbs.

Navigation

The route is not always way-marked and it is necessary to follow the detailed walking notes and maps provided. You will also have access to the Macs Adventure Smartphone App enabling you to follow the route using your phone's GPS so you will have no problems finding the way. You can simply download the GPX tracks to your phone for offline use and off you go!

Accommodation Information

We specifically choose your hotels to ensure that you enjoy every minute of your stay. All offer a warm welcome to walkers, traditional hospitality and delicious local food and drink. The hotels mentioned in the itinerary are subject to availability, and early booking is highly recommended for June-September in particular, as this is a very popular area.

Accommodation Details

We will always try and accommodate you at the locations detailed, but because of limited availability (especially June-September) we may have to accommodate you at an alternative location of the same or better standard (a supplement may be possible). Alternative details will be noted on your accommodation sheet.

Single Rooms & Solo Walkers

This holiday is available for solo walkers but we would recommend that you are experienced in walking and navigating alone and there is a solo walker supplement payable. If you require single rooms within your party we would be happy to accommodate you although there is a single room supplement payable.

Meals

5 Breakfasts are included each morning. In Italy this is generally a light continental breakfast. Lunch and dinner are not included but are available from your hotel or nearby restaurants.

When To Go

The Amalfi in Style walking tour is available from mid-April to October.  You can start your holiday on any date in the season. However, this tour is not available from the end of July until the end of August as this is the hottest time of year and availability in the hotels is almost impossible to secure due to it being the Italian summer holidays.

Peak season availability: Please note that July, then end of August 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 a perfect time of year as the landscape is made up of a gold and red pallet so September and October are unmissable.

Getting to the Start

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.

From Sorrento take a SITA bus to Amalfi which takes around 1H40.  Alternatively, we can arrange private transfers at an additional cost.

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 ALIBUS shuttle bus to Naples Airport.

Baggage Transfer

Your bags will be transferred from your accommodation as per your itinerary and moved onto your next overnight accommodation. We ask you to limit your luggage to one bag of up to 20kg per person.

General Information

The distances and ascent/descents are approximations of the recommended routes. Please be prepared by packing all necessary items, for example, proper rain gear (jacket and pants), sun hat, sunscreen. Your information pack has a detailed equipment list which includes standard walking gear such as good walking boots or shoes, warm and waterproof clothes for the cooler months and lightweight clothing for summer, and a day pack.
