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 (options to challenging). Through seaside villages to the Isle of Capri, this is not just a tour, it's an Edventure!
Your Edventure includes:
  • 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
  • Select admissions with priority entry
  • Poggioreale Prison in Naples (Correctional/Law Enforcement Officials Only)

~ Poggioreale Prison (Correctional/Law Enforcement Officials only)


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

~ A local farm to explore its lush gardens, cultivated fields and vegetation typical of many Mediterranean regions, followed by an aperitif of prosecco, meant to stimulate the appetite, and a four-course dinner


~ The fabled Isle of Capri, a beloved resort since the Roman Republic, followed by a mini-cruise to see to the cliff of Salto di Tiberio, the majestic caves of Grotta Bianca and Grotta del Corallo, and Marina Piccola, then a visit to Anacapri, with its stunning views

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

~ A traditional southern Italian farm where the secrets of making mozzarella, a staple of Italian cuisine, are demonstrated, before a tasting of its specialties at an authentic farm dinner, 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 its temples, homes and arches remain perfectly preserved, and a walk to the top of the mountain to explore its crater
