Nice hike up through Amalfi town and into a wooded valley with paper mill ruins. Easy hiking. Wonderful views back to Amalfi. Amalfi has many beautiful hikes

“Great food in friendly local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Out of the main centre, but not by very much so not too much of a slog to get to. I ate here twice and both times the food was excellent and they remembered me the second time, remarking that I could sit at the same table. And extremely good prices

“Appetizer for lunch in Pontone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

If you are staying in the Area get hold of the Sunflower walking book for Amalfi and Sorrento,, an invaluable source for walking this coast
The local council has renamed the walk Valle dei Ferriere. After the first sign up the main street to the mountainsfor the Valle dei Mulini the If you don't want to bother with lunch in Pontone take a picnic and have this after waymarker 13. Here instead of turning right go in the opposite direction and walk under the archway to a large open area above a waterfall. Here it is ideal for a picnic and a refreshing rest for your feet in the stream.This the site of the old iron works.
For the more adventurous further back towards Amalfi is a wonderful waterfall you can bath under.
From here retrace your steps to No13 and continue to Pontone. We generally have lunch at Ristorante S. Giovanni, just follow the signs through the picturesque village piazza. You can also get takeaways, but the best experience is in his restaurant surround by Jasmin and overlooking Ravello.
Very reasonable prices and exceptionally good food

“Wonderful half day walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is one of the iconic walks of the Amalfi coast and deservedly so. It starts in Amalfi town and follows the river to a series of mills and waterfalls inland. It can be done is a variety of ways, either up and back following the same route, or combined with other local walks such as the Valle delle Ferriere. Depending on which option you decide on, it can either be a half day walk or if combined with Ferriere, a full day walk (Ferriere is also meant to be a beautiful walk). The actual walk along through the town and to the waterfalls in quite easy, gradually heading up stream, but then becomes steeper if you decide to do the walk as a loop to Pontone and back to Amalfi. It is a beautiful walk, with lovely forests, cool under the canopy if you walk in summer, with the ruins of the mills along the stream. The section to Pontone is quite steep, but the bonus is the view back down to Amalfi, and the staircase which descends under the cliff to bring you back to Amalfi. This is a good way to escape the crowds on the coast and gives a different view of the whole area as it is quite deserted, except for holiday periods and on the weekends.
Make sure you have good directions or a map, as the way through Amalfi can be a bit confusing. Ask at the Information office on the main raid opposite the harbour, just along from the bus parking. Once out of town, there are no facilities, such as shops or toilets, so take a picnic lunch to have once you have passed the first lot of ruins.
