The lively city of Naples, along with a fascinating guided visit of Pompeii set the stage for this walking and hiking tour near the Amalfi Coast. We’ll take a walk along the pathway of the gods above the spectacular Amalfi Coast and through the beautiful island of Capri, while staying in a simple but welcoming family-run inn and a working farm with genuine farm-to-table cooking. Our hikes high in the hills above the Amalfi coast offer superb views as well as a glimpse of simple village life far removed from the hubbub of the coast, and the best views from Capri are enjoyed on our guided walk.
