“Hike of a life. Guided by Francesco Carpegna who we highly reccomend,( Positano Walking Adventures ) the Amalfi walking trails ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

While planning our stay in Amalfi Coast
area we felt unsure about the best way to plan our hiking. In Positano we were so fortunate to meet Francesco Carpegna the owner of Positano Walking Adventures.A perfectly bilingual history buff with 15 yrs guiding and interpreting experience he brought this amazing area to life for us.
The hikes are moderately challenging (we are reasonably fit middle age) 1/2 day to day 3/4 day hikes that offer panoramic sea views from the mountain paths. They can be a bit crisscrossed in some areas so we do reccomend use of a guide. Delicious village cuisine was a bonus surprise on those days.Enjoy.

“Vertiginous beauty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Easy to follow once you are on the path. Hiking with a photo camera takes longer time (consider the daylight limits in low season, it gets dark by 5 pm). I was hiking there late December and it was very comfortable (I assume it would be too hot to make this hike in summer). Suitable boots are neccessary (stone-paved track can be slippery in some places). The views are magnificent and there are occasional tables and benches on top of mountains (looks perfect for romantic dates:).

I walked from Positano to Nocelle (or you can take a local bus for this part if it is too much for you), joined the path there and made it up to Agerola, where took a bus to Amalfi, then changed back to Positano (if you start in the morning you can cover several towns on the coast). It feels very safe up there and you meet other hikers or locals on the road. It was definitely the highlight of my 2-day stay in Positano. Unforgettable beauty of Amalfi coast.

“A Fantastic Walk along the Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

I walked from Bomerano to Positano. The walk is undulating but has some of the best views anywhere. A real gem.

“Beautiful Hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

One of the most beautiful hikes I have ever done. Very challenging and steep in some places. Not for young children or inexperienced hikers.

“Breathtaking view!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The hike was more than 2 hours and hard at times, but completely worthwhile. The variety of native plants and flowers, the beauty of the vistas, the fine air and the bright colors all wrapped our senses and made us appreciate even more the final destination: a family trattoria where "nonna" prepares pasta and so many good dishes with their own produce.
Better if you go with an enviromental guide who will help you appreciate the natural beauty and the history of the place.
