Sorrento, Amalfi Coast and Capri : Car Tours and Walks Paperback
Part of the Landscapes series
One of Sunflower's most popular guides ever. Sorrento, Amalfi and Capri are wonderful areas for walkers.
Most of the paths can be followed easily by people who do not claim to be regular walkers, though committed hikers will like them just the same.---------------Accident of history and steepness of terrain have preserved a network of ancient footpaths linking the coastal towns of the Neapolitan Riviera and the surrounding countryside.
You can either climb almost from your hotel doorstep up into the lemon groves or take a bus into the hills and walk back down.---------------- All along the way you will visit hillside villages or remote monasteries and be regaled by the most stunning views.
The flowers are a constant delight: from broom and rosemary in March to freesias and cistus in May.
In autumn, the woods are carpeted with cyclamen.-------------7 car tours (with accompanying area maps), 72 walk segments (illustrated in six 'walk planners' and highlighted on the area maps), 17 excursions with picnic.
Plans of Amalfi and Ravello, Positano and Sorrento. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily.-------------The 'Landscapes' series, with 50 destinations, has been dubbed 'the blue Bibles' by the Sunday Times and led to Sunflower coming third in a field of 15 publishers in the 2014 Holiday Which? guidebook roundup.----------------- A trip based on this book was the most enjoyable I have ever had. (Nick, Amazon)------------ The local holiday rep was so impressed by our local knowledge, courtesy of your book, that she took down details and sent a request to her mother to forward a copy to her!
She felt that this was the first detailed guide book to this particular part of Italy.
The content, diagrams, maps, and directions are excellent; the pull-out map inside the back cover most useful. (AT, Amazon)-------------- I do not think that there is a better publication for those of us who want to explore the 'real' countryside of Europe. --(EMW, Crewe)
