Italy's Amalfi Coast - A Walking Tour (9 Days)

American author John Steinbeck once wrote that Italy’s Amalfi Coast “is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.” This is one of those rare places where photographs simply don’t do justice to it. Leap into the Italian way of life, where history and culture is everywhere you look, and do it as residents have for thousands of years, on foot, traveling where vehicles cannot. This tour is suggested for individuals who are healthy, independently-mobile and can take three- to four-hour walks each day that are moderate to challenging. Through seaside villages to the Isle of Capri, this is not just a tour, it's an Edventure!

  • Round-trip airfare from SFO or LAX (price varies depending on additional gateway choice)
  • 7 nights in hand-picked hotels
  • Breakfast daily
  • 4 three-course dinners, including wine or beer
  • Full-time tour coordinator
  • Multilingual tour guide
  • Private deluxe motor coach
  • Transportation (planes, trains, boats, etc.) while on tour

~ Welcome Dinner


~ A walking tour of the local Amalfi coastal villages, including Termini, with its lemon tree groves and olive tree orchards, and Lobra, for scenic views of the Isle of Capri


~ Poggioreale Prison (Correctional/Law Enforcement Officials only)


~ An optional walk along the picturesque Amalfi coastline, following the mountaintop Path of the Gods, a steep, winding path that once served as the only connection between the tiny towns visited, beginning at Agerola, winding through terraced limestone hillsides, and including Nocelle, a "lost village" perched 1,400 feet above Positano, accessible by foot only via two stone pathways (this challenging three-hour excursion involves difficult walking on uneven terrain - $65/pp) 

~ Enjoy a cultural experience at an agriturismo, or farm stay, where you’ll have a chance to explore the lush gardens, cultivated fields and vegetation, typical of many Mediterranean regions, then savor an aperitif of prosecco, meant to stimulate the appetite, followed by a four-course dinner


~ A ferry to the fabled Isle of Capri, a beloved resort since the days of the Roman Republic, followed by a mini-cruise around the island to the cliff of Salto di Tiberio, the majestic caves of Grotta Bianca and Grotta del Corallo, and Marina Piccola, the charming "little harbor" on the south side of the island, followed by a visit to the village of Anacapri, offering stunning views of the surrounding scenery

~ A walking tour on Capri's Pizzolungo trail as it wraps around the coastline, beginning at the historic center of Piazza Umberto I, and taking travelers to Arco Naturale, and close to the famous Casa Malaparte, a jewel of modern Italian architecture

~ A scenic drive along the Amalfi coast, including a stop in Positano, a walking tour through the town of Amalfi and Atani, and stops at Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone, known for their beautiful gardens

~ A visit to a traditional southern Italian farm, where the secrets of making mozzarella, a staple of Italian cuisine, are demonstrated, before a tasting of specialties are offered at an authentic farm dinner  typical of the Campania region, capped off with a tasting of limoncello, a tart after-dinner liqueur made from the best lemons in southern Italy

~ Paestum Ruins, well-preserved Greek and Roman ruins, with a visit to the archeological museum to see the famous frescoes of the Tomb of the Diver, found in 1968 during the excavation of this little village

~ Pompeii, buried in ash during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79, where many of Pompeii’s temples, homes and arches remain perfectly preserved, and a walking tour to the top of the mountain to explore its crater
