STORY WALKS: Beautiful Amalfi Coast

The beautiful Amalfi Coast of Italy awaits you on this hand-crafted Story Walks' adventure.

STORY WALKS: 8 Day Amalfi Coast Walking Tour

This Story Walks' Adventure Features


Journey Overview

“This settles it. I’m truly in love with this place. It became exceedingly clear when we crested the peninsula and saw the Amalfi Coast to my left and the Bay of Naples to my right with Capri in the distance…it all came in to focus. Oh my! — Michael & Nona”

WALKING TOUR CHARACTER: Moderate to Difficult, 2 to 6 miles daily on average. Group size: no more than 16 guests who love to make new discoveries and meet new people.

 TRIP COMMENCES: Sorrento, Italy (fly into Naples NAP) with included airport or train station arrival transfers from Naples to our hotel in Sorrento.

 TRIP FINALE: Sorrento, Italy with included airport departure to Naples Airport (or Naples train station).

ADD AIRFARE: Check with our Air Service Department to inquire about competitive round-trip airfare rates. Visit Air Service for an airfare quotation with your walking tour.

 WALKING TOUR SUMMARY: When they say, “Enchanted Amalfi Coast,” there’s a reason! It is truly something out of a movie when you find your perspective looking down at the blue waters of the Mediterranean from your perch high atop the Sorrento Peninsula. The Amalfi Coast enchants us with Positano, the picturesque vertical village by the sea, and then on to the Isle of Capri and the heart of traditional Napoli, Naples.

SORRENTO

Day 2: Welcome to the Sorrento Peninsula & the Amalfi Coast

Amalfi Coast from Sorrento

food icon   Story® Way Dining: Welcome Dinner Tonight

Upon arrival to the airport, you clear customs and are met by our Story Representative for your included transfer to Sorrento, our home the next two evenings.

ORIENTATION WALKABOUT
Join your Story Adventure Guide for our Orientation Walkabout on your arrival day. 

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most splendidly beautiful–and historically significant–areas in Italy. The area is comprised of the southern coast of the Sorrentine Peninsula, south of Naples and part of the province of Salerno. In the northern coast we find the town of Sorrento, from which the Peninsula derives its name, and along the southern coast one will find the region’s main towns of Positano, Atrani, and Amalfi. The island of Capri, located nearby in the Bay of Naples, is also considered part of the Amalfi Coast.

The town of Sorrento has been a popular resort since Roman Times and is perched above the sea. It boasts a picturesque bay and the distant views of the Isle of Capri tantalize.

Fall under the spell of the enchanting Amalfi coast, where the most beautiful coastline in the world offers incredible views throughout its course.

food icon   Story® Way Dining: Enjoy a feast hosted by your Story Walking Gide to kick off the journey with our included welcome dinner.

About the Story® Way of Dining
Our approach to dining is truly unique: Our favorites dishes represent the region we’re traveling through. We call this, parla come mangia or ‘speak the language of your food.’ From our unique, off-the-beaten-path restaurants we visit for each included dinner to the variety of hand-crafted dishes, it’s truly an immersion into authentic Italian food and wine. No buffets here. Your Story Adventure Guide is there to make sure your dining experience goes smoothly and will help you interpret any menu item. Your guide will select a variety of appetizers, featuring regional cuisine, and will select your vino from the estate ~ a variety of red and white wine from the best regions of Italy ~ and yes, “the wine flows.” It’s an intentionally slow evening of delight so you can savor the experience.

Our hotel on the coast is very important! It must boast gorgeous views and be away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento!

Accommodation: Hotel Bellevue Syrene or Similar, 3 Nights

PUNTA DELLA CAMPENELLA

Day 3: Today’s Walks on the Amalfi Coast

food icon   Included Breakfast

Walks on the Amalfi Coast
The link between the Sorrento Peninsula and the Amalfi Coast, the Punta Campanella, provides perspective like no other. As the point where the Monti Latteri starts to slope down toward the sea, a land of myth and legend surfaces on this narrow strip of land as if yearning to be reunited with the Isle of Capri.

Character of the Morning Walk: Hiking the Punta della Campanella: About 2.5 Miles with a walk-rating of Easy.

After breakfast, we transfer to the small village of Massa Lubrense to begin our walk on the Punta Della Campanella.

This easy route, passing over relatively flat terrain, has the sea to one side and small gardens and olive groves on the other. The path splits into two at one point with the higher taking you along the ridge of the Monte San Costanzo, and the lower path along the flat tongue of land which is the Punta Campanella to the Saracen Tower and the ruins of the Minerva Sanctuary.

A strip of land steeped in history and legend, Punta Campanella, according to Odysseus it was here that Ulysses met the Sirens and the region has never been the same! The Greeks built a temple in honor of Athens here as well and the structure was later converted into a Sanctuary devoted to Minerva by the Romans. In the 14th century a watch tower was built on the promontory to guard against Saracen attacks from the sea. Outstanding walk today.

We return to Sorrento by vehicle.

Join your Story Adventure Guide for an Option Dinner or explore on your own. 

 



THE PATH OF THE GODS | POSITANO

Day 4: Today’s Walk on the Amalfi Coast

We take one of the “high” routes of the Amalfi Coast moving from Agerola to Positano. This is by far one of the most famous hikes you can do as it is known for its constant ups and downs, awesome sheer vertical drops, and its cultivated levels or terraces of land. Beauty.

 Character of the Walk: Transfer to Agerolo on the Amalfi Coast and begin the Paths of Gods’ hike. About 4.5 Miles with a walk-rating of Moderate to Difficult. The hike climaxes with a perspective highlighting the west, where we see siren archipelagos and stunning, swirling shapes of the Mediterranean. The hike concludes as we arrive the stunning village of Positano.

Enjoy a stroll around the narrow alleys of Positano, which enjoys an unsurpassed position along the Amalfi coast, where delightful white and pastel-colored houses litter the hillside. Along with the beautiful beaches, its ancient fishing port, the splendid majolica dome of the church of Santa Maria Assunta and artisan shops, our visit will be a slice of La Dolce Vita.

We return to Sorrento.

Tonight, join the Story Adventure Guide for an optional dinner or explore at leisure.

WALKING CAPRI: The Villas of Tiberius

Day 6: Today’s Walk on the Isle of Capri

The ever-extravagant Roman Emperor Tiberius constructed twelve villas on the island with only three surviving the passage of time to be recognized as such: Villa Jovis, Villa Damecuta and Palazzo a Mare. Our path takes us to several with an occasional opportunity for a splash in the sea.

 Character of the Walk: Some steep climbs but with great rewards: 2-4 Miles with a walk-rating of Moderate.

 Villa Jovis

 This is the largest and best conserved of the twelve villas which Tiberius had built following his decision to retire from political life and retire

Villa Lysis, Villa Fersen

 Villa Fersen was once the home of the French poet and writer Jacques d’Adelsward-Fersen.

 Villa Damecuta

The second of Tiberius’ best conserved villas, Villa Demecuta, is located in the adjacent town of Anacapri.

 Return to the hotel with your Story Adventure Guide or continue exploring.
