Walking the Amalfi Coast
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Every day we were treated to amazing scenery and historical adventure, it is so difficult to pick just one of the day long trips. Personally, my favourite walk was the jaunt from the Town Centre at Amalfi to Ravello, passing waterfalls and a winding river along a long spectacular gorge then a traversing climb along mountain paths to such the beautiful Town of Ravello overlooking the Amalfi Coastline. Unfortunately, "The Walk of the Gods" was initially hindered by low Cloud cover so we may just have to go back and do that one again on a clearer day!
What did you think of your group leader?
Our Group leader Suzy went over and beyond her responsibilities to make sure everyone in the group of fourteen had a great time, Suzy was very enthusiastic and clearly knowledgeable about the area, History and vegetation around us. Incredibly organised, she was cheery and bubbly the entire week. She even worked on her day off, our free day, using her fluent Italian to make sure everyone had return transportation and ample information about our multiple destinations. Suzy considered our safety and well-being at all times, she led the group at a perfect pace and catered for the "not so fit" like myself when the need arose.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
I walk my Dog regularly and in anticipation of this Holiday made myself walk for an additional 45 minutes every day, to and from the Office. the Walks in Amafli were a little tougher than I had trained for! Whilst I coped admirably (I had a complete Knee replacement last year), and got fitter by the end of the week, this Holiday has a lot of uphill and downhill walks. I would suggest practising on some incline walks and stair cases for a few weeks before you go.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
A holiday of a lifetime, If not on it already Walking The Amalfi Coast should be one everyone's Bucket list. Even people like me with a Knee replacement. Thank you Exodus and Suzy for a really enjoyable experience. I laughed every day, made some new friends for life, and with such breathtaking scenery took a thousand photos! We Will be back for more.
