Full of interest
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
Learning about Pompeii and how the citizens lived in days gone by made me realise just how much of modern day practises were actually in place centuries ago. Pompeii is a huge site full of interest (unfortunately also full of tourists!)
What did you think of your group leader?
We had a great group leader in Satva, charming, considerate and full of interesting anecdotes.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
We were advised that walking poles would be useful but I didn't find I needed any. If you do regular exercise running or cycling and are in general good health this holiday will be very comfortable for you. Watch the steps though, they are all around the region and going down can be a strain on your knees. I went to Capri and walked up the Phonecian steps which took 30mins. There was plenty of time to see all the sites before heading back to the boat.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
I think any time on the Amalfi coast is going to be busy, so be prepared for lots of tourists when you reach popular destinations, Pompeii, Vesuvius, Amalfi, Positano and especially Capri if you go there for your day off. Use a guide at Pompeii as they can steer you away from the crowds and make your visit so much more interesting. The walks are very much away from the crowds and really enjoyable.
