Walking the Amalfi Coast in October

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Inspiration is a little strong for this trip. There were many enjoyable moments, Herculaneum, Pompeii, Vesuvius and the wonderful views along the coast. The moment that will stay in the mind is the view from the café in Villa Cimbrone.

What did you think of your group leader?

Eric was very enthusiastic about this trip and was always eager to stop and point out views or matters of interest. He was helpful in organising activities and meals on our free day and seemed to enjoy the trip as much as we did.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Think carefully about what you take. For us, walking poles and boots (even 2 season) were a little OTT and we could have managed very well with approach shoes. Whilst walking kit and rucksack was fine whilst on the trail when we reached some of our destinations we did feel a little scruffy and out of place.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

If you are after a mix of leisurely walking, some beautiful views, the history of Pompeii and Vesuvius as well as good hospitality then this trip is well worthwhile.
