WALKING THE AMALFI COAST

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Floating in the warm sea at Amalfi looking up at the town. The view from the top of Vesuvius. The moon shining brightly over the twinkling lights of the bay at Ravello.  My favorite walks were The Walk of the Gods and the Valle de Ferriere NP walk.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our group leader Jo was friendly and approachable. Jo explained what each day would entail and what we would need to take with us on our walks.  She helped us to arrange excursions outside of the itinery for our free day or if people wanted a break from walking and was good company all week. Our guide for Pompeii was excellent and helped to put over the story of the people who lived there.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Book it and go, you will have a great time !!  I went at the end of August which was very hot. Walking in 35 degrees is something I have never experienced before, however I still did all of the walks and loved it.  I get travel sick so travel sickness bands or tablets are a good idea for the winding roads. Finally there really are a lot of steps!!

Is there anything else you would like to add?

I picked a solo departure as I didnt want to feel like an odd one out and I also shared a room. Both turned out to be great decisions. Our group had a wide age range and people from all walks of life and generally got on really well. My roomate and I got on like a house on fire. The Hotel Du Torri was relaxed and comfortable, the staff welcomed us warmly and looked after us well. I had a fantastic time.
