THE AMALFI COAST

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

There are many inspirational moments - from Herculaneum and Pompeii through to Ravello and Amalfi - the "Walk of the Gods" would be our top choice.

What did you think of your group leader?

Christine was very well organised and looked after us very well. She had a wealth of knowledge and kept the walks at the right pace. Our expecations were well managed in terms of hills and steps! Exodus has very good leaders and guides and Christine was no exception.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Make sure you can cope with 6 - 9 miles walk in the heat (if you go in the summer) - it was over 40C on Vesuvius (even the locals were complaining!) - so we had to take it slowly and drink plenty.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

This is a well structured trip in a lovely part of Italy. You cannot fail to enjoy it, the walks are great, the hotel food is excellent and there is a lot packed into the week - it is very good value.
