This ever popular self-guided walking tour explores the peninsula below the gracious crescent of the Bay of Naples. Traveling at your own pace, you combine the elegance of eternal favorites like Ravello, Positano and Sorrento with discoveries most travelers never make: such as farmers harvesting olives, fishermen crouched over brightly painted boats mending their nets and the bird's eye view of the entire peninsula from the Pathway of the Gods above Positano.
From Ravello, whose exotic formal gardens, Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone, seem to float ethereally between sea and sky, your route takes you first to Positano's chic pastel houses and enticing volcanic sand beach. It's then on to Marina del Cantone, and hidden shingle coves few foreign visitors ever find. Finally you reach cliff-top Sorrento. With balcony views over Vesuvius, it's a great base to visit Pompeii or Herculaneum by train, or Capri or Ischia by boat.
You stay at carefully picked hotels throughout. They range from a family-run clifftop hotel with amazing views in Amalfi, to an elegant **** hotel in Sorrento panoramically overlooking the Bay of Naples. Dinners are either taken at the hotel, or at one of the many fine local restaurants. Lunch options are varied: either a panoramic picnic, or a trattoria lunch, perhaps delicious mozzarella, grilled vegetables and fresh fish from the sea.
Please note starting Apr 19 2018 that the Pathway of the Gods has been closed by the local authorities following 2 landslides. We are currently looking into alternatives and will post an update in due course.
