This linear self-guided walk follows the coast from elegant Amalfi to chic Sorrento.

Travelling at your own pace, you'll combine the elegance of eternal favourites like Ravello, Positano and Sorrento with discoveries most travellers 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 Path of the Gods above Positano.

Highlights
* Emerald seas, plunging gorges, balcony views of Vesuvius brooding on the horizon * Vertical landscape of pastel villages clinging to dramatic hillsides * Stunning walking trails through lemon groves, olive trees and vines; swimming possibilities most days * Stay in elegant Amalfi, Positano and Sorrento * Option to visit the enchanted isle of Ischia, Capri or fascinating Pompeii
Food

The cuisine on the Bay of Naples uses the freshest vegetables and the famous mozzarella cheese is always on the menu. Try it in salad with sweet tomatoes, baked with aubergine slices or on its own with an accompaniment of herbs. Fresh fruit features heavily too - figs are often used in antipasti along with slices of ham and what better way to finish off a meal than with a slice of fresh water melon? Pizza is a favourite dish all over Italy, but nowhere more so than here (it was invented in Naples!). The thinnest of bases are cooked in the hottest of wood ovens and are garnished with a mouth-watering variety of toppings. The Amalfi Coast itself is not a wine area as such: the terraces are often too high for the vines to flourish. The region of Campania, however, has a number of good wines from vineyards further inland. Vines flourish too in the rich soil near Mount Vesuvio. Look out for Lacrima Christi del Vesuvio.

Day 1 : Arrive in Amalfi

Arrive at your gorgeous 4 star hotel in Amalfi. There's time for a dip in the swimming pool, offering stunning views, before dinner (Pay locally for dinner).* (Staying at the Hotel Miramalfi)*

Day 2 : Exploring Ravello (Optional)

A 20 min bus ride (pay locally) to picture perfect Ravello where your walk begins. Time to view the famous Villa Rufolo and Greta Garbo's legendary retreat, Villa Cimbrone, before descending through citrus groves to Torre dello Ziro (the Saracen watchtower inspired Webster's Duchess of Malfi), then along panoramic terraces, to enter the Valley of the Mills (a testament to Amalfi's medieval paper industry).* (Staying at the Hotel Miramalfi) *

Meals: breakfast,

Day 3 : Amalfi/Bomerano to Positano

We will drop you off in Bomerano to begin today's walk which takes you along the Path of the Gods, the region's most famous walk offering views all the way along the peninsula, with Capri's famous Faraglioni cliffs marking 'land's end'. There's a choice of picnic spots with stunning views as you continue onwards past lemon groves and brigands' treasure troves to Nocelle. Then it's down through lush terraces to the vertical pastel town of Positano and your hotel in the historic centre.* (Staying at the Casa Albertina)*

Meals: breakfast,

Day 4 : At Positano

Positano's wide pebble beach is perfect for a lazy day, but if you fancy exploring further afield there's a pleasant walk to Fornillo Bay with its twin Saracen watchtowers. Boat excursions to discover coral lined sea grottoes, as well as trips to the magical mediterranean island of Capri, are available in the harbour.* (Staying at the Casa Albertina)*

Meals: breakfast,

Day 5 : Positano to Marina del Cantone 12km/7.5mi/4.5hr or 15km/9.5mi/5hr

We take you into the hills near Fontanelle (30 mins) from where you wind through olive trees as you climb gently to Sant'Agata. There are balcony views - making this a fantastic picnic stop - of Capri, Procida and the Li Galli islands, once considered to be the home of the mythical sirens who lured sailors onto the rocks. A paved lane finally leads you down past geranium-decked houses to the small fishing resort of Marina del Cantone.* (Staying at Taverna del Capitano)* Optional shorter walk: 4.5hrs, distance 12km/7.5mi

Meals: breakfast,

Day 6 : At Marina del Cantone (Optional 6km/4mi/2.5hr)

You'll be tempted to linger in this pretty little village with its pebble beach lapped by incredibly azure waters, but it's a shame to miss out on our optional walk on the gorgeous Jeranto Bay. There are sea views throughout as you climb to the Montalto Tower, perched on its 100m-high cliff-top outcrop with a truly fabulous panorama over Marina del Cantone and the Li Galli islands. You then descend through olive groves and olive growers' dwellings to an atmospheric ancient limestone quarry, with great sea views, before a final ascent back to your hotel.* (Staying at Taverna del Capitano) *

Meals: breakfast,

Day 7 : Marina del Cantone to Sorrento 7km/4.5mi/3hr or 8km/5mi/3.5hr

We give you a lift (15 mins) to Termini from where you wind through olive groves with ever-opening views over the Bay of Naples and its islands, Capri, Ischia and Procida. It's well worth the detour to lovely little Annunziata to visit its pretty Aragonese castle for wonderful views. It's then on to bustling, pastel-coloured Sorrento, with its enchanting gardens, maze of narrow streets and stunning views over to Vesuvius.* (Staying at the Hotel Continental) * Optional shorter walk: 3hrs, distance 7km/4.5mi

Meals: breakfast,

Day 8 : In Sorrento

Staying at your 4 star hotel panoramically overlooking Mount Vesuvius, you're ideally placed to visit Naples or one of its islands, such as Ischia or Capri, by hydrofoil. Alternatively the historical sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum can be visited using the excellent Circumvesuviana Railway.* (Staying at the Hotel Continental)*

Meals: breakfast,

Day 9 : Leave Sorrento
