Day 1: Rendezvous at the group guest-house in Agerola, Amalfi. KE land only services being with a single-timed airport transfer from Naples to Agerola for clients arriving on this day.
Day 2: The rural dwelling of Agerola provides the perfect base for us to explore the Lattari Mountains. Walking through farmland and forest, we reach a number of spectacular vantage points of the Amalfi Coast. En-route back to our guesthouse we have time to test locally produce limoncello.
Day 3: This morning we take a private transfer to Pompeii, where to explore this incredible 'sleeping' Roman town. After lunch we drive up onto Mount Vesuvius and take a short hike onto the crater rim where there are also spectacular views across the Bay of Naples and across to the Isle of Ischia.
Day 4: Today we walk the 'Iron Valley' as we walk woodland trails which lead us to a hidden waterfall. Following the River Caneto we finish our walk in Amalfi where we have free time to explore the piazza, visit the magnificent cathedral or take a quick and cooling dip in the Med!
Day 5: On this free day, you may deicide to venture down to Amalfi port and take a ferry to either Positano or the Isle of Capri. You may prefer however, to visit the superbly preserved town of Herculanuem, once buried by the eruption of Vesusius 79AD.
Day 6: Taking a public bus to Amalfi, we ascend through the 'Valley of the Mills' and enjoy a well-paced day hike to the jewel of Amalfi, Ravello. With picture postcard views and time to enjoy a gelato in the lively Piazza Duomo, we return to Agerola by private minibus.
Day 7: Today we hike the 'Walk of the Gods' an ancient terraced mule path linking the villages of Agerola and Positano. Depending on the sea conditions, we return to Amalfi by boat, then take the public bus back to Agerola.
Day 8: KE Land Only package services end after breakfast. A single shuttle bus transfer to Naples Airport is provided.
