This was so not what we expected. We thought it would be a leisurely stroll to see some old mills but the waterfalls, old mills, bridges and narrow paths made the trek one of the most spectacular activities to do in Amalfi. The local hotels...More

We walked up the Main Street of Amalfi and then followed the signs for the walk. The first set of steps are the most challenging. Quickly you are amongst lemon and lime groves and the view back to Amalfi is wonderful. We stopped at the...More

Had a wonderful visit to this unique corner of the Amalfi coast immersed in a unique nature, we were welcomed by the forestry carabiniere who showed us the the fern plant that only grows there. A big thank you to Marziano, Francesco and Angelo

I didn't notice any signs prohibiting dogs. I don't know if there are local leash laws. This walk would be no problem for a young, healthy dog.

Amalfi Coast walks (1 Replies)
We have 2 days in Amalfi and 2 days in Sorrento. From Sorrento we are visiting Pompei. In Amafli we would like to do the Path of Gods walk, Trail of Charms and the walk from Scala Via Campidoglio through Valle delle Ferriere to Pogerola ending at the medievil staris (we have heard this is a must). We have also been told about the walk to Pontone upto Torre dello Ziro through Valle delle Mulini. Are these all too much to do in 2-3 days? If so, if anyone has any suggestions as to...More

I guess it depends on how much of a hiker you are. The Path of the Gods is an all-day affair because of the transportation involved to get there. Scala to Valle delle Ferriere to Pogerola is also a very long walk, and the final ascent to Pogerola is a taxing one. The Trail of Charms is the name for the series of trails that link Amalfi to Positano, and it includes portions of some of the trails you have already mentioned. The Path of the Gods is very worthwhile, as is the loop from...More

Valle Delle Ferriere vs. Valley of the Mills Hike (4 Replies)
Hi all - I am headed to the Amalfi Coast in early August and want to do either Valley of the Mills of the Valle Delle Ferriere hike. I have the sunflower walking guide (which seems great), but am curious about (other than distance) how the two hikes differ? Is is worth the extra time to do Ferriere, and what do you gain? I am an experienced hiker, so the distance won't be an issue for me. And when doing this hike, do most people return via Pogerola? Thank you!

The Valle delle Mulini and Valle delle Ferriere walks cover much the same ground. There is also an "upper" Valle delle Ferriere walk which skirts the valley at a somewhat higher altitude, that takes you up into the Minuta area. I will presume that's NOT the hike you're inquiring about. From Amalfi, both Mulini and Ferriere follow the same path until you reach the turn off to the right to the stairway for Pontone. At that point, you can instead continue to go straight. You will reach the...More

self organised walking amalfi coast (10 Replies)
Hi, We are wanting to organise our own walking trip (4 nights) from Amalfi to Praiano, Poitano and then catch bus/taxi(?) back to Amalfi where we plan to leave our car. Has anyone done this, and if so, how difficult is it to catch transport back to starting point. Also, does the tourist office have good maps of the Valle Delle Ferriere and footpath of the Gods? How well are trails signposted? Any information gladly received! Many thanks Sue

For maps, try the Sunflower guide to the Amalfi Coast which has walking maps. Go directly to their website where they are cheaper than Amazon. (At least they were last year.) Mine arrived from the UK to the USA in a week.
