Walking on the Amalfi Coast : Ischia, Capri, Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi Paperback
Walking on the Amalfi Coast describes 30 day-walks, ranging from 3km to 11km in length.
The whole area is crisscrossed by ancient mule tracks, pilgrim routes and goat tracks, offering a variety of walking from family strolls to strenuous treks across terrain from paved paths to verdant hillside paths and rough volcanic scree. The routes in this guidebook, and every single walk can be accessed by public transport.
Written by Gillian Price, the walks explore the Sorrento Peninsula, Amalfi Coast and Monti Lattari, from Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi, and also the islands of Capri and Ischia in the Gulf of Naples.
The steep southern edge of the Sorrento peninsula, famous for its medieval villages perched atop plunging cliffs, with their near-vertical vineyards and lemon orchards, is now recognised as a World Heritage Site.
This coastline, the rugged landscape behind, crowned by the Monti Lattari, and the idyllic islands of Capri and Ischia together also make a perfect holiday destination for walkers.
