THE AMALFI COAST
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
I thoroughly enjoyed all the walks: there are some stupendous views (though of course this rather depends on the weather). I guess walking around the rim of the Vesuvius crater, on a fine day, with stunning views all around, was something of a highlight. I also loved the gardens of Ravello, though the best time of year for them is probably spring time.
What did you think of your group leader?
Albert was competent, well-organised and knowledgeable. Everything ran very smoothly under his direction.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
If the flight is still with British Airways, try to fit your walking poles into your suitcase. You can only take them as hand luggage if you take off the tips or cover them. Otherwise they will go into the hold either strapped to your case or as a separate item, depending on who is doing the checking in. In addition to your day pack, you can take a laptop or briefcase as a second piece of hand luggage. You can check in online. The breakfast on board is foul - very disappointing for an expensive airline!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
There is a lot packed into most days, which can be a little tiring, not leaving much persoanl space.
