THE AMALFI COAST

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

There were many high points but the views have to count among the most memorable parts of the holiday.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our leader was excellent; both friendly and approachable.  Nothing was too much trouble.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Bear in mind that August on the Amalfi coast is very, very hot and that the walking is therefore quite draining.  You will need lots and lots of water and lots and lots of suncream and a very good hat.... 

Is there anything else you would like to add?

Ravello, in my opinion, should be included in the itinerary as it's too good to miss.   Everyone I have spoken to rates Herculaneum above Pompeii so I think it would be worth going to the former instead, there isn't time to do it all... There are lots of 'little extras' so take plenty of money.  The buses in August are packed, which is an understatement, so if you want to arrange private transport into, say, Amalfi, it'll cost you dear.
