Traveller Tale: Walking the Amalfi Coast

Sherry and her partner answered some interview questions about her recent walking holiday to the Amalfi Coast in Italy. She went on the Amalfi Explorer, a blissful 7-day self-guided tour that takes you to all the Amalfi highlights, including Naples, Sorrento, Positano and the Island of Capri.
Prepare to be inspired to explore the gorgeous Amalfi region!
Over to you, Sherry.

Why did you choose to walk the Amalfi Coast?

We love to hike and explore on foot. The self guided tour through UTracks, provides detailed trip notes, personal transfers, quaint, beautiful accommodations, as well as breakfasts and three delicious dinner meals.

What was the local Italian cuisine like?

The local cuisine was outstanding! My favorite dish was lemon risotto, but every pasta dish was delicious!

Path of the Gods is moderately challenging as the path/stairs that pass through Scala and onto Arabella.

Can you share advice for other travellers thinking about doing your trip?

We walked about 8 miles (13km) every day to truly get a feel for the culture, cuisine, and friendly locals.

Our Amalfi coast trip was wonderful! UTracks takes care of every detail, arranging personal transport, selecting cozy and charming accommodations, and an engaging itinerary. The trip notes provided ensure that you locate and identify important landmarks on your day hikes. Sorrento and Capri are beautiful! We especially enjoyed the tranquillity and authenticity of Agerola. Path of the Gods is a breathtaking hike with glorious views of the Amalfi Coast from the mountain top you traverse. Sherry's 5-star review.
