WALKING THE AMALFI COAST

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

I loved walking through the sweet chestnut groves where it was so peaceful before descending to the hustle and bustle of Amalfi. Pompeii and Herculaneum were both stunning and very different so it's worth seeing both. Although our walk around the Vesuvius crater was done in mist it was still a great experience.

What did you think of your group leader?

Albert was an excellent leader with a wealth of knowledge about the area. He has built up a rapport with the local people which benefitted us in many ways. He was always very calm and pleasant, I felt that we were in good hands.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Many people have mentioned the steps and on the first walk down into Amalfi from Boneramo there are certainly a lot! If you take it easy it's not too difficult and our guide built in lots of little stops for everyone to catch up.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

If you would like a varied holiday amidst beautiful scenery with leisurely walks it would be hard to beat this holiday. We had good food and wine, saw one of our meals prepared in the kitchen before we ate it and had comfortable accommodation. The family run hotel has a nice feel about it. All in all a most enjoyable week with lovely walking companions and a great guide!
