“A Little Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We took the steps down to Atrani, passing many panting hikers coming up. Make sure you don't miss the signs and end up walking down the road as we saw some walkers had done. There are always locals who can set you on the right track. There are some spectacular views but this whole area is full of great vistas. Unfortunately, some of the best views on the walk are obscured by a high, barbed-wire topped wall. The buses to go back to Ravello were all full but after an hour's wait we were allowed to get on a community transport minibus.

“Tough but worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

almost 2000 steps; definitely our sport for the day but wonderful views on the sea in between vines, lemon trees. You have to go to the Villa Rufolo for the picture postcard iconic views. From June to Sept there is the music festival... an extra motivation for climbing up the steps!

“Worth the sore legs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Setting off in the (slightly) cooler morning, we walked up to Ravello from Atrani and, despite tired legs and hot bodies, delighted in the views along the magnificent Amalfi coast. A walk well worth taking and the reward at the end - the truly lovely little town of Ravello set high above Amalfi - was wonderful. After exploring the town, we took a slightly different route back down via at least 700 steps - wobbly legs - stopping along the way to have lunch and admire the surroundings at leisure. The Great Ocean Road (Victoria) has been well and truly usurped! Wow!

“Prepare Yourself.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

A rigorous workout amidst splendiferous views. Not for the faint of heart or couch potatoes. the trail is mostly for donkeys and hiking fanatics, but more than worthwhile. I would not even think about trying it in reverse.

“Hard work on the knees!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We walked down from Ravello to our villa at Castiglione di Ravello. It is reasonably well signposted although we had to ask someone where to start - beside the Villa Rufolo - it says Marmorata to start with and then we pick up the Amalfi signs. Some of the steps are quite steep and rugged so it is not an easy walk down. Highlight was going past the Mama Agata's Cook school as we had seen this in the final of BBC's Masterchef! It takes the best part of an hour to get down.
