WALKING THE AMALFI COAST

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

The 'Walk of the Gods' was spectacular and lived up to its reputation. The walk into the Valle delle Ferriere was superb, full of interest and history culminating in a magnificent waterfall.

What did you think of your group leader?

Christine Rooney was an excellent leader in every respect; knowledgeable, caring and someone in whom you had total confidence that all would be well throughout the trip. She was at all times appreciative of the group's abilities/interests and made appropriate adjustments according to individual need.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

I would endorse the advice from Exodus to take walking poles, useful in my case for some of the long descents and numerous steps. March can be very varied in terms of weather. We experienced snowfall and hailstorms. Be prepared regarding layers and suitability of clothes.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Prospective clients are advised to read the trip notes in detail prior to booking since one or two in the group were not prepared for the lengthy descents in wet weather. Note also that there were no local boat trips to Capri nor from Positano to Almalfi at the time of our trip (March).
