One of the best hikes I've ever done. You go from the streets of Amalfi to lemon groves to forest to ruins to waterfalls. To start, walk to the end of the main street in Amalfi, following signs for the Valle delle Ferriere. You'll start by going up steps and a slight incline. After 15 minutes you'll see a beautiful...

This is a good climb of many steps heading past very interesting old ruins of mills and aqueduct climbing to the Ferriere. Not quite as amazingly spectacular as some of the reviews had us believe. Many walkers at the Ferriere were looking for something beyond and no-one seemed to know quite where. At this point, you have 3 choices, left... More

It was an easy & lovely hike reachable from Amalfi town centre. I enjoyed the sights of the decommissioned steel mill. The stream runs along the trail. You can hear the water flow as you walk. As a result, the hike is punctuated by mini and medium falls decorated by the lushness of greens around.

We walked down from Ravello to Amalfi. As usual on the Amalfi Coast there are MANY steps. But the view down the valley to Amalfi truely is breathtaking- Tabe the bus to Ravello and walk down to Amalfi ( get map and directions from Tourist Office in Ravello) Just do it!

Easy, gorgeous hike that I had researched with payoff grotto at end with dripping water everywhere. Just a very beautiful place, including XII century ruins along the way. Many waterfalls and rapids. Would hike it again.

The stairs and incline that you have to hike heading away from town is impressive. It's beautiful to stop and stare at how far you've gone and yet you are no where near the end. Once we reached the woods, the temperature cooled and the terrain changed. We took our time and took plenty of pictures. the water was so... More

Great trail walk.Just a wonderful adventure into the unknown. Lovely scenery with only a few others on the path. Quiet! So neat to experience creation.The pictures we took haven't really captured what you see and feel when you are there. A sense of stepping back in time seeing all the old Mills and structures.

If you are in for a hiking challenge, then this trail may be a good start. You will be able to enjoy beautiful scenery, panoramic views and nature at its best. The trail is somewhat challenging at times, especially when the weather conditions are not in your favour. But when it's dry and sunny, I would really advise everyone that... More

A reasonably gentle climb for those used to exercise. It is interesting to see the old mills, and the waterfalls are beautiful. If some care were taken of these structures, I am sure this could get itself listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Sit.
