A two-week walking holiday covering the best of the Cilento National Park & the Amalfi Coast

The region of Campania marks the real beginnings of southern Italy. It has been sought-after since Roman times when it was tagged the Campania Felix or ‘happy land’. Understandably when there is the great city of Naples, beautiful countryside, Roman sites, small islands and stretches of spectacular coast. On the southern side of the Sorrento Peninsula, the Costiera Amalfitana is probably one of Europe’s most well-known and dramatic stretches of coastline, with its towering cliffs and picturesque coves.

South of Salerno, and immediately south of Paestum the coastline bulges out into an expanse of mountainous landmass known as Cilento, now a National Park with World Heritage listing. The Cilento coast is fairly rocky territory, with the shoreline lapped by a crystal sea. There is a wild kind of beauty here; rocky ridges set between small picturesque inlets and richly scented pinewoods backing onto wide sandy beaches. Aleppo pines loom over multicoloured undergrowth of myrtle and prickly pear; whilst huge, centuries old, olive trees grow right down to the shore. Inland the Cilento is largely undisturbed by the 21st century and we enjoy visiting mediaeval and quaint fishing villages where the traditional way of life is still evident. We stay in traditional accommodation and each day we venture into the undiscovered Cilento National Park, following mountain paths among olive groves, woodland glades with spectacular views of steep cliffs and deep valleys.

The Amalfi Coast is arguably the most impressive stretch of coastline in the Mediterranean, and includes the spectacular island of Capri, as well as the majestic Amalfi coast itself, with its precariously located hilltop villages, beautiful coastal towns and classic walking. The Amalfi also offers an extraordinary palette of colours with azure skies, white limestone cliffs, deep blue seas and bright citrus orchards, all lit by the dazzling Mediterranean sun. A web of ancient pathways winds along shoreline cliffs, leading from charming coastal towns through rustic woodlands and up to beautiful villages perched on craggy peaks. On this enchanting walking adventure, we go beyond the crowds to experience the hidden treasures and authentic culture of this Italian paradise. Highlights include a hike along the stunning ‘Sentiero degli Dei’ (Footpath of the Gods), the mysterious Valley of the Mills located just behind Amalfi, the spectacular village of Positano, a daytrip to the world famous Isle of Capri, where you’ll see both the highlights and its hidden corners.
