We took the bus to scala before starting the walk. The steepest section is at the scala end. After that it is quite easy to pogerola and the wonderful Cocktail Bar (see my review). We then hiked down to Amalfi. A different hike to some of the others as you see greenery and small waterfalls, as well as some sea... More

This hike was one of my highlights in Amalfi. Beautiful, lush scenery. Picturesque views looking back at Amalfi. The hike itself is relatively easy. Bring your swim trunks/bathing suits to jump in the many pools along the way created by the waterfalls.

Not too difficult. Very green. Nice waterfalls and lemon orchards. Nice to see an ancient roman aquaduct of Amalfi. We did not go all the way but did about 2 miles up and 2 miles down back to Amalfi town. Nice to get away from the summer crowds.

If you want some time for peace and tranquillity, then doing Valle delle Ferriere is definitely a must. From Paper Mill turn right following the red arrow that says Valle delle Ferriere. The route goes through picturesque lemon groves and settlement nesting at the edge of the mountain. In a way it is a nice introduction to real Amalfi life.... More

We did this long and beautiful hike twice on the same day. There are waterfalls and great views. The river has places where you can go in for a dip if you stand the cold water. Many quaint homes along the way with lemon orchards.

Beautiful falls but beware, 2 hr trek up the mountain to get there and it is only open on a Sunday. Well worth the visit though

A one hour uphill hike reveals one waterfall after another, and then you come upon the big one, and it's huge. Well worth the many steps.

So much I could say about this beautiful hike, but I will just sum it up by saying it's totally worth the effort...especially if you go on Sunday when they unlock the gate that allows access to the stunning waterfall as well as the beautiful stream area that runs beside it. I did it twice in one week(starting and ending... More

Be aware that the upper most section of this path (after you cross the river above the last ruined mill) has been fenced off as it is within what looks to be a nature reserve requiring special permission to enter. Also, the path contouring back towards Pogerola does not seem to have been walked recently; it's quite overgrown and we... More

My husband and I did this hike, thinking that we would enjoy the beautiful waterfall at the end. However I think that we enjoyed the ruins more, and the trail itself, with stunning views of lemon trees and the beautiful scent of lemon flowers wafting on the trail. Yes your legs will be sore from all those stairs, but you... More
