This is one of the iconic walks of the Amalfi coast and deservedly so. It starts in Amalfi town and follows the river to a series of mills and waterfalls inland. It can be done is a variety of ways, either up and back following the same route, or combined with other local walks such as the Valle delle Ferriere. Depending on which option you decide on, it can either be a half day walk or if combined with Ferriere, a full day walk (Ferriere is also meant to be a beautiful walk). The actual walk along through the town and to the waterfalls in quite easy, gradually heading up stream, but then becomes steeper if you decide to do the walk as a loop to Pontone and back to Amalfi. It is a beautiful walk, with lovely forests, cool under the canopy if you walk in summer, with the ruins of the mills along the stream. The section to Pontone is quite steep, but the bonus is the view back down to Amalfi, and the staircase which descends under the cliff to bring you back to Amalfi. This is a good way to escape the crowds on the coast and gives a different view of the whole area as it is quite deserted, except for holiday periods and on the weekends.
Make sure you have good directions or a map, as the way through Amalfi can be a bit confusing. Ask at the Information office on the main raid opposite the harbour, just along from the bus parking. Once out of town, there are no facilities, such as shops or toilets, so take a picnic lunch to have once you have passed the first lot of ruins.
