Fantatic week of walking on the Amalfi coastline
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Walking up Mt. Vesuvius was definitely a highlight.
What did you think of your group leader?
We couldn't have asked for a better group leader in Emily. She had lots of local knowledge, was very organised and every day was well planned with everything running to schedule. The walks were very enjoyable and she set a comfortable pace, with sufficient stops to catch your breath and take in the views.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The walks aren't technical or on overly difficult terrain so I would say boots weren't really needed apart from maybe Vesuvius as it's mainly scree that your walking on. If you opt not to take boots then good walking/trekking shoes are essential. I used poles on several of the days and I found them really helpful as there are some very long uphill & downhill stretches.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
The hotel Due Torri in Bomerano is a perfect base for the holiday and well located for all of the walks. It's no frills with fairly basic rooms but everything is clean and tidy. They have a nice outdoor eating area, bar and pool and all of the staff are very friendly. You will not go hungry and the food at the hotel is amazing! The cooking demonstrations are great fun too.
