Walking the Amalfi Coast
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The Valle de Ferrier walking from Amalfi to Ravello. Such a mix of interesting things from walking through Amalfi and seeing the Cathedral and tunnel walkways, to looking at the Nativity scenes along the way. The waterfalls in the valley were so beautiful that I agreed with our guide that we could be in a fairy glen. The plants and butterflies were gorgeous, the houses built into the cliff face and finally arriving in the beautiful town of Ravello and enjoying an iced coffee out of glasses with ceramic stems. (So beautiful were the glasses I bought one to bring home)
What did you think of your group leader?
Christine was perfect as our leader. She knew what pace to keep so we all enjoyed the walks and did not feel left behind. Her knowledge of the area and the culture is extensive and she relate stories of the locals in a very interesting way. I would recommend her highly.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
This is not a holiday for people who cannot cope with heights. Some of the walking is on paths with steep drops, though it is quite safe some people may struggle with the height. Also the nature of the walking means it is tough on the legs with the number of steps negotiated downhill. I recommend using walking poles.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I felt this was up there with one of the best Exodus holidays we have done (sorry nothing will ever beat the Annapurnas, Chitwan, Everest tour!). It had everything I enjoy.......spectacular scenery, interesting walking, beautiful towns and a great hotel with excellent food. The group was well balanced and fun to be with. A brilliant holiday all round and one I am recommending highly to family and friends
