“one of the highlights of our trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

We knew nothing about this hike. It was not mentioned in our guidebook. We had been staying in Amalfi for 4 days and had run out of things to do so decided to walk towards the hills to see what we could see. We very luckily came upon this trail (I guess you could call it that although it's really nothing like a hiking trail back home) and we were thrilled with our discovery! The only drawback is it was raining that day, we had started in mid-afternoon and it was our last day in Amalfi so we could not go the entire distance. If we had known about it earlier, we would have hiked all the way to Ravello.

“Gorgious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We were proposed by our hotel to join a free guide to discover this treck. She took us to gorgious places we would never have visited by ourselves. We had a 3 hour walk, climbing a lot of steps, but it was worth it !!!

“Cool escape from Amalfi heat.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We did the valle at the end of a long hike from Amalfi to Atrani, to Ravello. The trail from above (Pontone) leads down into the deep ravine with a small but swift stream that powered centuries of now derelict paper mills. The ruins reminded us of Cair Paravel in the second Narnia book by CS Lewis. A lovely walk back to the outskirts and through Amalfi ended the hike

“Hiking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

The hike is well worth the trip. Beautiful waterfall at the end. You pass lemon tree and fig trees. We picked a fig and ate it along the way.

“Beautiful hike in the mountains over Amalfi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

This was a great scenic hike up the mountain valley behind the town of Amalfi! We walked up the main street of town until we got to the paper museum, then turned right and there were marked stairs that began the trail. Well marked along the way, the trail passes by ruins of old paper mills and iron foundries which both seemed to have harnessed the gushing water as a power source in days gone by. It was a hot day in the town, but the mountain valley had cool breezes and cold streams and waterfalls along the way. A lot of stairs but not terribly difficult, the hike took us a little over 3 hours. The only disappointment was the gate to the nature preserve area was locked (not sure who is allowed in and when). No matter, we headed toward Pantone which offered amazing views of the town below and the sea beyond. Bring water and snacks/lunch as there is nothing at all on the trail.
