Positano to the Path of the Gods, Capri & Ischia

It must be something about standing high above the Mediterranean. Or the lemon-infused air wafting through olive groves. Or the villages carved out of cliffs. Epic vistas from Path of the Gods. You know why Emperor Augustus had to have it all those years ago. You'll want to make the Amalfi Coast yours, too.

Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Terrain

The majority of the routes on this trip are relatively short, but moderately strenuous with occasional steep sections. The most challenging aspect is the dramatic elevation change. We're often climbing or descending steps and cobblestone paths to reach stunning Mediterranean vistas and charming cliffside towns. While you're free to take your time navigating these routes, you should feel comfortable with some steep ascents and descents. Sturdy, lightweight hiking shoes with robust tread and ample ankle support are recommended. Backroads provides two walking poles per guest.

Trail Support

Our routes through this captivating terrain are a combination of loop hikes and out-and-back trails that begin and end in the same location. In some cases our shuttles will get us to and from the trailheads, but due to the nature of these trails, we usually won't see our vehicles along the route. Ample trail support in the form of water, snacks and encouragement is provided by your Backroads leaders and local guides.

Accommodations

Palazzo Ferraioli is a modest property with an ideal location in the town of Atrani. While this property is simpler than the typical Backroads standard, we've chosen it because of its proximity to our favorite routes and position on the stunning Amalfi Coast.
