A Guide to a Memorable Walking Holiday in the Amalfi Coast

Located on the southern shores of Italy, the Amalfi Coast is one of the most breathtaking coastlines in Europe, welcoming millions of tourists each year who rush to walk and sunbathe in its 50 km stretch of coastline.

Its dramatic cliff adorned with brightly colored towns, abundant lemon groves, and tiny coves at the foot of the Monti Lattari mountain range make it a paradise for hiking enthusiasts and one of the best walking holidays in Italy.

Crafting Your Walking Adventure

One of the first steps is crafting your trip, planning is the only way you will make sure that everything goes smoothly, but if you want to avoid all the planning and focus on the journey you can contact tour companies, like Orbis Ways, which will take care of everything for your walking holiday.

But if you’re old-fashioned and want to do everything yourself, you should consider the following tips:

  1. Pack Smart: Comfortable shoes, sunscreen, a hat, and a refillable water bottle are essential.
  2. Capture the Views: Don’t forget your camera, every turn offers a postcard-worthy scene.
  3. Embrace the Local Cuisine: Savor terrace-top meals and indulge in fresh seafood.
  4. Connect with Nature: Listen to the waves, breathe in the salty air, and let the beauty of the coast envelop you.

Exploring the Amalfi Coast and Trails

The main trail is the one that goes from Amalfi to Positano, which is an 8-day walk with stops at the best highlights and landmarks. The hike is 53 km (33 miles) long and you’ll be able to walk along the Amalfi coast and its ancient trails, a network of paths that have been welcoming people since ages ago.

By walking on the Amalfi Coast you will be able to go through the lemon trees and vineyards while enjoying some of the most scenic views.
