Walking the Amalfi Coast

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

It's hard to pick one out from a number of such moments. The first view of the Amalfi coast on our first outing, and many subsequent views as we took the various walks were all breathtaking. As we ascended to the top of Monte Tre Calli, the Sorrentino Peninsula came fully into view and that was well worth the steep path to the top. The Walk of the Gods must be one of the most beautiful individual walks with the amazing views of Positano, and also the walk through Valle delle Ferriere N.P. to Ravello was a memorable experience.

What did you think of your group leader?

Our group leader was without doubt the best leader I have met on all the walking holidays I have taken over the years. He was well organised, whilst calm and unflappable, and very considerate to the needs of all the group. His knowledge of the countryside and the flora and fauna, as well as the language, was most impressive. He was also a very likeable character, with a great sense of humour, who got on well with all the group members. And he was very thoughtful in judging when people needed a rest or a drink etc. He earned the respect of all the group and his efforts were greatly appreciated.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

I would encourage prospective travellers to ensure they read the trip notes thoroughly, and make sure they take walking boots as well as lightweight walking trainers, and also a walking pole for the steeper sections of the walks.
