Walking on the Amalfi Coast

32 walks on Ischia, Capri, Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi

Guidebook describing 32 day walks on Italy's beautiful Amalfi Coast. The areas covered include Amalfi, Sorrento, Positano and Monti Lattari, and the idyllic islands of Capri and Ischia. The region is criss-crossed by ancient mule tracks and pilgrim routes, offering a variety of walks from family strolls to strenuous treks.

Seasons

all year round, though midsummer can get a bit hot. The spring (April-May) and autumn (September-October) months are probably the best. Winter can be wonderful - and quiet

Centres

Naples is the main city and airport, but key walking bases are Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and the gorgeous islands of Capri and Ischia

Difficulty

all walkers catered for, from strollers to active trekkers; simple short routes on old mule tracks, but flat land is in short supply here and stepped pathways are the norm; walks are graded 1-3

Must See

Walks are both easy and challenging, Sentiero degli Dei, the Monti Lattari, Roman villas, hidden coves, lemon orchards, coastal ferry trips, divine Neapolitan cakes, medieval alleyways
