Overview

Explore the ancient trails on Italy's Amalfi Coast among lemon trees and terraced vineyards with pleasing views. The Amalfi Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, has attracted visitors to its impressive coastline since Victorian times. 

However, its attraction is no less intense today. Explore Amalfi, Ravello and Positano, picturesque hillside towns and villages. 

Not only will you walk along the "Path of the Gods", which is justifiably the most famous walk on the Amalfi Coast, but you can also try the fabulous seafood, take a day trip to the island of Capri and, if you want to, you can visit the ruins of Pompeii.

  • Walk along the Amalfi Coast and its network of ancient trails, in southern Italy.
  • Discover the charming town of Ravello and its colourful gardens.
  • Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the photogenic city of Positano.
  • Enjoy some of the best frutti di mare (seafood) in the world.
  • Explore the world-famous island of Capri at your own pace.

    Travel & Transfers

    The best way to get to the Amalfi Coast is to fly to Naples' Capodichino International Airport.

    From there you can take the "Alibus" bus and get off at the "Napoli Piazza Garibaldi" stop, where you will find the train station.

    From here you can take the train "1" (Napoli Centrale) which leaves every hour to Castellammare di Stabia. You should get off at the station "Via Nocera".

    We always recommend taking a taxi from Castellammare di Stabia directly to Amalfi, to win time, but if you prefer you can take the local bus 5080, which will take you to Amalfi.

    At the end of your journey, you can take bus 5070 from Positano (Chiesa Nuova station) and get off in Sorrento at the "Sant'Agnello" stop, from where you will have to take bus "L1" back to Naples centre (Piazza Garibaldi).

    Another option is to take the boat "Positano Jet 3265" from Sorrento to the port of Naples.

    FAQs

    Absolutely! Each traveller has included 1 piece of luggage that we will transfer between your accommodations. It's important that this piece of luggage meets the following criterias:

    • Maximum weight of 45 lbs (20 kg).
    • Must be only 1 piece of luggage without any attachments or accessories.
    • Should not contain valuables, fragile items, food or medications.
    • Must be correctly identified (booking reference of your trip and the full name of the trip holder).

    The approximate luggage delivery time will be at 4:00 PM.

    We suggest you to make the reservation as soon as possible, as soon as you have decided your travel dates as this destination is extremely popular and accommodation bookings sell out quickly.

    These routes are rated as moderate and are between 3.5 and 5.5 hours of walking each day. Some of the walks are more difficult due to significant ascents and descents in altitude.

    This tour is for you if you are in good physical shape and enjoy coastal walks with spectacular views, gastronomic adventures, excellent seafood, wine and a lot of history.

    Some walks are on steep cliff edges, which would not be suitable for people with vertigo. Most of the route is on dirt trails and stepped roads, although occasionally you'll find asphalt roads. 

    You will need comfortable clothing and good walking shoes or boots, waterproof jacket and trousers, a backpack and hats or hats/gloves, etc.

    Spring is magnificent on the Amalfi Coast, and April, May and June are absolutely lovely. Autumn is a perfect time of year, as the landscape is formed by a palette of gold and red colours, so September and October are a must-see.

    July and late August can become very hot, so we recommend that you start your walks early to avoid the heat of the day, as this can slow you down, although the cities and towns are vibrant and full of activity, which is great.

    Naples Airport is the best to fly into. You can take the Curreri bus to Sorrento and then the Sita bus to Amalfi or, if you prefer, you can arrange private taxi transfers to Amalfi.

    You can stop at any city on the way and call a taxi, or one of our local representatives, whose contact information is in the information package we will deliver prior to departure. 

    Because it is a highly-demanded tourist destination, local taxis and vehicle services are available, or you can request your transfer from one accommodation to another in advance on the days when we transfer your baggage. Specific contact numbers can be found in the information package, or you can request assistance from the hotel manager.

    If you require medical services, seek immediate assistance at the hotel or nearby hospital. As always, our 24-hour support is just a phone call away.

    The administration was good before our trip and our questions were answered quickly. The accommodation was also good. We had no problems with the baggage transfer too.
    Our group of 5 had a really great experience with orbis ways. Our contact person was helpful via email and via phone. Great accommodations and each host was helpful and generous with kindness.
    I travelled last week to Madeira with Orbis Ways and it has been an amazing experience. Accommodations were exceptional, and everything was explained very well, apart from that the Island is amazing, must be seen at least once in a lifetime. Dinners were very good, with local fresh homemade food! Very recomending!!!
    Excellent trip. Excellent communication with Orbis. Lovely accommodations. Luggage transfer was always done well and the overall trip was excellent. I cannot wait to do another walk in 2023 and will use Orbis ways 100%.
    Few days ago I finished Camino Francés. Orbis Ways planned the trip for me, arranged my routes and accommodations as well as luggage transfers. Everything went smoothly from the beginning in St Jean Pied du Port until the end in Santiago. Rooms with private bathrooms that they booked for me were comfortable and clean and luggage transfers underwent without mistakes. My daily routes were well planned. In 34 days I had only two problematic situations with accommodations and their 24 hours assistance team solved them in few minutes. I enjoyed every minute of my Way. I am planning to return and do some other route - Norte and Portugués gor sure. Orbis Ways will be my choice again.
    I did the wonderful walking holiday trip of 8 days Mont Blanc...the experience was incredible, from the beginning everything chosen in the dossier was beyond expectations, providing all the necessary information.I am very grateful for the wonderful and detailed attention of Jhonay. Also the accommodations chosen were very comfortable!I have no doubt that I will repeat as soon as I can, the routes are spectacular!
    Orbisways did an outstanding job of planning our trip along the Camino de Santiago. The provided voucher provided excellent information, the accommodations were awesome, never had any confusion regarding travel details and the staff I worked with prior to our trip were kind and very efficient. I highly recommend OrbisWays and will definitely be traveling with them again!!
