Amalfi Coast Walking Tours

The Amalfi Coast is one of Italy's most spectacular coastlines where stone stairways lead to dazzling views over the Tyrrhenian Sea and ancient mule paths connect romantic fishing villages. It comes as no surprise that the ‘Costiera Amalfitana’ has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. 

Walk the Path of the Gods, justifiably the most famous walk on the Amalfi Coast, crossing terraced vineyards and historic towns along the way. Make sure to replenish with a picnic lunch and some fresh lemonade to absorb the coastal landscape. If you are looking for a real taste of Italian life, our Amalfi Coast & Mountains trip is for you, combining clifftop walks with footpaths through mountains. Another exciting experience is our best-selling Amalfi Coastal Trails route, showcasing the highlights of the coast, visiting legendary Capri, and the ruins of Pompeii. ‘La dolce vita’ awaits on our Amalfi in Style trip, designed for those looking for the ultimate treat - staying in stylish 4* hotels in stunning locations. Our Amalfi Coast & Sorrento Peninsula trip truly packs a punch, connecting the Amalfi Coast with Sorrento, on the equally impressive southern end of the Bay of Naples.

We have a fantastic relationship with our Italian local partner in Amalfi who has been looking after our customers travelling to this stunning destination since 2009. Simply pick one of our itineraries, get in touch with one of our team and we'll take care of anything else.

  • Amalfi Coast: Must Try Foods
    Amalfi Coast: Must Try Foods

    Spaghetti alle Vongole – A dish that is available in nearly any coastal town! Spaghetti with freshly-caught clams which can be ordered with tomatoes or without. Best enjoyed on a panoramic terrace with a glass of local wine!

    Delizia di Limone – It is said that the world’s best lemons grow in the region of the Amalfi Coast and Gulf of Sorrento. This dessert is one of the many regional specialties; a lemon-scented sponge cake covered with lemon zest and frosting.

    Fiori di Latte – Cheesemongers in the tiny mountain hamlet of Agerola produce the famous Fiori di Latte cheese that you can typically find on a Neapolitan Margherita Pizza. A little drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of fresh sea salt turn this fresh cheese into something magical.

    Totani e Patate – Back in the day many small towns along the coast, such as Positano and Praiano, were rustic villages. This dish of squid and potatoes reflects on their humble fishing roots and makes for a delicious starter or main course.

    Scialatielli con Gamberi e Zucchine – This is a delightful fresh pasta dish with zucchini and locally-caught fresh shrimp tossed in a rich seafood stock. It translates to ‘scialare’ which means to enjoy and ‘tiella’ which means pan, simply put; enjoyment in a pan. Many restaurants may also include mussels, prawns, or clams.

  • Villages of the Amalfi Coast
    Villages of the Amalfi Coast

    Amalfi – a small town that is easily walked from one end to the other in 20 minutes! Amalfi is steeped in history and culture, has a small beach, busy piazzas, lively seaside restaurants and has a beautiful Byzantine-influenced cathedral.

    Atrani – a lesser-known village in comparison to its neighbour Amalfi but well worth a visit! Tier upon tier of multi-coloured houses above a small stretch of sandy beach – arguably one of the most idyllic settings along the coast.

    Ravello – in contrast to other Amalfi villages this settlement was built on a hill, rather than on the coast – like a sanctuary away from possible invaders. Ravello is chic and refined, with polished piazzas, lush villas and majestic gardens. Villa Cimbrone is a must-see!

    Praiano – an ancient fishing village that got its name from the Greek word of ‘open sea’. Formerly a silk-production centre this was a favourite amongst the Amalfi dukes that made it their summer residence.

    Positano – the sight of Positano upon reaching it is truly breath-taking, the shimmering blue sea, the silvery beach, Santa Maria Church and the interconnected, multi-coloured houses. It’s dramatic, fashionable, and very photogenic!
