WALKING THE AMALFI COAST

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

We were so lucky to have such a sunny week in February, so the views were terrific each day.  Our visit to Pompeii was incredibly interesting and this was followed in the afternoon by a trip up the snow-capped Mount Vesuvius. Perhaps the best moment of the week was when we arrived at the beautiful waterfalls during our long walk through the forest and down the very steep hillsides en route to the little town of Amalfi.  The waterfalls were breathtaking and we could have stayed there all day!!

What did you think of your group leader?

Our guide Christine was superb! She was absolutely lovely all week, very jolly and chatty and she took every opportunity to show us maps of the area and keep us informed about all aspects of the Amalfi Coast.  Her local knowledge was incredible and she really looked after us brilliantly at all times.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Be prepared to have lots of fun and don't forget your camera. Go with a huge appetite, the food at the hotel is amazing and the local red wine goes down a treat! Make sure you have good walking boots as there are long walks up and downhill every day and lots of steps.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I have been on lots of Exodus holidays already and this is certainly one of the most scenic and beautiful places I have experienced so far.  The little town of Ravello (above Amalfi) is gorgeous, with beautiful little courtyards and exquisite gardens.  We visited this on our free day and is definitely on the 'must see' list.  I can understand why this is one of Exodus' most popular trips.
