THE AMALFI COAST
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
I loved all of the walking, expecially the trip to Mount Vesuvius. Took the additional trip to walk the rim which was unbelievable.
What did you think of your group leader?
The group leader, Albert, was very knowledgable and everything ran smoothly. He briefed us each evening with the agenda, pick up times etc for the next day. He had a great sense of humour and made the walks very enjoyable. He knew some great places to eat and drink in Amalfi also.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
For this particular holiday it is important to have a good pair of walking shoes. Also a micro towel would be good to take as we end a few of the walks on the beach. Saves taking a bulky beach towel with you on the walks. Most of the walks are around 9k, so not too far but there is quite a lot of climbing up and walking down, so if you have troublesome knees some walking poles would be beneficial!
Is there anything else you would like to add?
All in all we had a fabulous holiday. The hotel was lovely and the staff very friendly. The food was gorgeous and plentiful. You won't go hugry! Beds were very comfortable and we got clean towels every day. Only small grumble is the shower cubicle is pretty small and easy to hit the tap, which turns the shower off. Not easy to bend down in the shower either if you drop anything. Plenty of hot water though.
