Best of all, they ensure you will be completely immersed in the history, nature, delicious foods and sights of the spectacular Amalfi Coast.

Read on to see the Six Best Walking Tours of the Amalfi Coast.

 

  1. Rome and the Amalfi Coast on Foot

  2. The remains of Rome's Colosseum, Italy |  <i>Sue Badyari</i>

     

    Walking the magnificent 'Path of the Gods' between Agerola and Positano is just one of the highlights of the amazing Rome and the Amalfi Coast on Foot walking tour. This is a small group guided tour, and one of the biggest benefits is having a local guide share their backyard and all the regional secrets with you. 

    Explore the gorgeous, famous, island of Capri; taste the delicious local produce (cheeses, limoncello, wines), soak up the incredible ancient history in the city of Rome and hike Mt Vesuvius. Top off this exceptional tour with a dip in the Mediterranean, and this is one of the best weeks' you can have in Italy.

  3. Amalfi Explorer

  4. Walkers taking in the views on the Amalfi Coast |  <i>Sue Badyari</i>

    On the Amalfi Explorer walking tour, it's certain that you'll be exploring all of the best parts of the iconic Amalfi Coast. Take in the fascinating ruins of Pompeii, discover the historic centre of Naples (try some authentic pizza!) and meander the hiking trails of the island of Capri. 

    Also on this highly rated, 7 day, self guided walking tour, you'll have opportunities to swim in the Mediterranean Sea, walk around the charming towns of Agerola and the beautiful Ferriere Valley, and ascend to the crater of Mt Vesuvius. Another highlight is sampling fresh limoncello in the pretty streets of Sorrento.

  5. Classic Amalfi Coast - 11 Day Walking Tour

  6. Rufolo Gardens, Ravello

     

    The highly recommended Classic Amalfi Coast walking tour is an 11 day odyssey that follows the Footpath of the Gods and features some unrivaled Italian coastal hiking. On this self guided walk, explore at your own pace the idyllic villages of Praiano, Positano, Sorrento, Amalfi and Maestra dei Villaggi.

    "A memorable trip. Beautiful coastal scenery. We walked through olive and lemon groves and ancient villages nestled in green valleys, among high terraces, with church bells tolling in the distance. Some challenging but rewarding ascents ( for a couple of septuagenarians), such as the trail up to the grottos above Praiano and the 946 steps to the San Domenico Monastery. The best part is that the walk was self-guided which allowed us to set our own pace, stopping wherever, whenever we wanted."

  7. Classic Amalfi Coast - 8 Day Walking Tour

  8. Passing Ravello, Italy |  <i>Sue Badyari</i>

    Following a similar route as the aforementioned tour, the Classic Amalfi Coast: 8 days walking tour takes in most of the beautiful sights of the Amalfi Coast, however this one finishes in Positano and does not include the boat trip to the Island of Capri.

    The locals call this region 'The land of the Midday Sun', because it is a special land where the mountains, marquis pastures, lemon groves, vineyards and villages meet the sea. A place where you could be strolling on a rugged trail for one moment and then in the next be winding down through a citrus grove then through a pleasant village towards the blue waters of the Mediterranean, gelati in hand.

  9. Classic Amalfi Coast - 6 Day Walking Tour

    If you're short on time but still want to experience the stunning vistas of the Amalfi Coast, the condensed Classic Amalfi Coast: 6 Day walking tour, is possibly the best trip for you. This lavish holiday showcases the iconic towns of Amalfi, Positano and Praiano and follows paths to paper mills, nature reserves, gelato shops, churches and more.

  11. Cilento Coast and Mountain Walking Tour

  12. Boats and town |  <i>John Millen</i>

    At UTracks, we simply adore getting off the beaten track. This is why we believe the Cilento Coast and Mountain walking tour is one of the hidden gems to experience. On this trip, you can explore the rarely visited Cilento National Park, see the amazingly well preserved Greek colony of Paestum, and try delectable regional Italian cuisine in the village of Rocca de Cilento.

    Highlights include witnessing sleepy fishing villages, untouched nature full of myrtle, prickly pear and olive groves, as well as the kind hospitality of the locals who are eager to show you their part of the wonderful Amalfi Coast.
