“Fairly hard walk down, but worth it”

Ravello - Atrani Walk
Ranked #4 of 36 things to do in Ravello

It is a lovely hike down from Ravello to Atrani, but be advised that it's almost all steps, and the steps are high, and the walk is 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The walk back up was impossible for us to do, but very fit people do it, we hear.

We went to Ravello whilst staying in Amalfi. A fairly short and pretty ride by car or bus, or a pretty steep walk up since the village is in the mountains above the coast. The square offers a few restaurants but I would recomment going in the morning or for lunch since the coach parties arrive in the afternoon and then they are quite full! The church is lovely (with free admission!) and we were able to go in luckily since afterwards it was closed for a typically Italian wedding which was nice to see. Do visit Villa Rufolo (5 Euros) with its lovely gardens and an incredible view. Not necessarily a place to stay the night but well worth a visit.

The walk is a beautiful. The scenary is spectacular as the view opens up. Lemon trees and terraces on very side. You also get in an insight into what the coast must have been like before so many roads were built and difficulty people would have had accessing their houses. It feels as though you see an older less touristy Amalfi coast as you walk down the path seeing very few people. The path has lots of steps (maybe 500-1000), many of which are quite steep so you would not want to have knee problems. I recommend at stop at the end of the walk to have an orange juice or coffee in Atrani or Amalfi and catching the bus bck up the hill!

Whenever we undertake this walk, the signs are non-sequitur I this valley, since the signs for Amalfi become Atrani halfway down. To get to Amalfi from Ravello, one must pass through Pontone, via the road if possible, though no sign says this and the town maps are bad. On the upside, ask for natural lemon drink at the Blu Bar, and. chap was painting a red and white strip in the section between Pontone and Amalfi to show the way. Employ hi. for the valley leading to Ravello please!

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.
