View of the inhabited rocky coast by the sea in Amalfi

Amalfi - one of the most beautiful coastlines of the world. During the Roman Empire the region already was famous for the fabulous landscape, the pungent scent of flowers and lemons, turquoise sea, idyllic coves and lush vegetation. You walk along this wonderful coast, as well as through the contemplative hinterland, always with view to the sea. Medieval villages, terraces, forests and mountains stretch between the overnight places Agerola, Amalfi and Praiano.

Legendary gorges, such as those of Furore or the “Valle dei Mulini” are among the absolute highlights of the hiking holiday. Medieval ruins, old monasteries and the picturesque town of Ravello are well worth a visit. The icing on the cake of the hiking holiday on the Amalfi Coast is the Valle delle Ferriere nature reserve.

  • Valle delle Ferriere Nature Reserve: Take enough time to explore the spectacular waterfalls and unique natural monuments.
  • Via dell’Amore: The ‘Path of Lovers’ is lined with breathtaking panoramic views.
  • The Path of the Gods: from the monastery of San Domenico to Nocelle and Montepertuso. According to legend, Zeus, the father of the Gods, walked here.

Once you arrived in Agerola, a hike to the panoramic mountain Monte Tre Calli opens the tour. On your journey you will pass the Santa Barbara Grotto and the Furore Gorge. Discover the town of Amalfi with its monasteries steeped in history. In Pontone, visit the Torre dello Ziro and look down on the entire coastline with a scenery to die for. Then you pass through romantic towns before you reach the Santa Rosa Monastery dating back to the 10th century. The Path of Lovers takes you on the trail of the green valley to Praia. Then walk the pilgrimage route to San Domenico and follow the Path of the Gods. On this hiking holiday, you walk around four to five hours every day. Tours almost start at sea level and climb 250 to 800 metres in altitude every day. Sure-footed hikers have a clear advantage on the route along the Amalfi Coast.
