Path of the Angler Fox

Among the excursions, we also suggest this one. It is quite short and starts from the Chiesa di S. Elia (St. Elias’ Church) in Furore (Piazza del Carmine). In 40 minutes, you will get to the Fjord of Furore.
The way is steep at the beginning only, but the exposure to the sea makes it enjoyable. The final destination is the fishing village with its perched houses.

Valle delle Ferriere (3 hours – low difficulty)

One of the most fascinating trekking routes on the Amafi Coast is between Amalfi and Scala, where you can find the Valle delle Ferriere (Valley of the Ironworks) crossed by the river Canneto. The atmosphere is like the one of a typical canyon, with a particular microclimate that has allowed the preservation of rare vegetation.
It is possible to follow different directions, downward from Minuta di Scala or from the village of Pontone or upward from Amalfi.
In the lowest part, not far from Amalfi, you go through the Valle dei Mulini (Valley of the Mills) where you can see the ruins of the ancient paper mills famous for the production of paper. On the other side, instead, you enter the Valle delle Ferriere, so called because of the presence of old places for the production of iron.

Small waterfalls and rapids protect what has been a natural reserve since 1972.

Montepertuso (Positano) – Forestale – Conocchia – Monte S. Michele (4 hours – medium difficulty)

The starting point of this trekking itinerary is the village of Monterpertuso near Positano. After reaching the forestry barracks, the view reveals itself to excursionists without too many secrets and if you take a look, you can still see Montepertusoon the left and Vettica Maggiore in the back.
During the way, you can stop or go on towards Santa Maria di Castello to see the cave with the Madonna, and also towards Monte Sant’Angelo a Tre Pizzi (Mount Sant’Angelo a Tre Pizzi), characterised by a wild landscape that is completely different from the one you see along the path. Going along the rocky edges, you reach the junction of Conocchia and then you get to the highest peak (1444 meters), a natural terrace on the Gulf of Naples.
Sentiero della Praia (Path of the Praia): from Bomerano to Marina di Praia (4km – medium difficulty)
From the main square of Bomerano, a village near Agerola, you walk on the mule track until you get the cave of St. Barbara. Then you turn right along the ancient creek bed of the river Praia that leads to Praiano and Vettica Maggiore and goes towards the coastal road. Now you reach Marina di Praia taking the stairs to cala di Rezzola near the Chiesa di S. Luca (St. Luke’s Church).

Maiori – Convento di S.Nicola – Minori (2 hours – low difficulty)

The Monastero di S. Nicola (Monastery of St. Nicholas) is between Maiori and Minori, on the top of a hill in the middle of the valley of the Lattari Mountains. Even if it is not very high, it allows you to enjoy a spectacular scenery, with the peaks of Monte Sant’Angelo (Mount Sant’Angelo), which light up when the sun rises, Monte Finestra (Mount Finestra),Monti del Demanio(Mountains of Demiano) and also the Avvocata.
In the middle, instead, there is the valley of the Reginna Minor, to the west the rocky spur with Scala and Ravello, to the east the valley of Maiori. You can start both from Minori and Maiori thanks to several paths, like the “sentiero dei limoni” (path of the lemons), which leads to the village of Torre. Along the way, you will find clear directions to reach the monastery.
Sentiero del Borgo Marinaro (Path of the fishing village): from the Belvedere “Fausto Coppi” (Agerola) to the Fjord of Furore (2 km – low difficulty)
Trekking on the Amalfi Coast allows you to discover unknown places, like the ones of this path that from the belvedere “Fausto Coppi” to Agerola leads straight to the Fjord of Furore. The stairs to the sea are not so difficult, so if it is the first time you have put on the hiking boots, this is the right route for you.

Maiori – Santuario dell’Avvocata (3 hours – medium difficulty)

The climb up Monte Falerzio, whose slopes house the Santuario dell’Avvocata (Sanctuary of Madonna Avvocata), is one of the most evocative walks, where nature, history and religious tradition melt perfectly together.
The excursions on the Amalfi Coast are all characterised by the presence of stairs, like the ones that lead to the Santuario dell’Avvocata.
Once in Maiori, you start from Via del Casale and, after many stairs, you get to San Vito going through the typical terracing of the coast and the ruins of the old houses.
From San Vito approximately half an hour’s walk separates you from the ruins of the farmhouse in Santa Maria and from the spring called “water of the chestnut”, a little higher. Flat and steep areas alternate and after going past the Grottone and the Teglia, there is another vast plateau with the chiesa dell’Avvocata (Church of Avvocata).
Of particular interest is the belvedere that leads to the mountaintop, where you will find the cave of Matteo Salese along the steep walk. The legend tells that he jumped into a void after hunting with gendarmes.

Paths of Capo d’Orso

You start from an old “carcara”, a stone building for the production of lime, just a few steps from the restaurant. After a few minutes, you get to a large path that will allow you to do different excursions, all of them fascinating.
If you look up, you can see the massiccio del Monte Piano (Massif of Mount Piano), the perfect place for those who love climbing, and the caves of Capo d’Orso. Walking to Maiori, you will enjoy the panoramic view and you can reach a thousand-year old abbey (Abazia di Santa Maria de Olearia).
Going towards Cetara, you can reach the Vallone di San Nicola (valley of St. Nicholas) where the ruins of the ancient monastery of San Nicola de Carbonaris are still visible set in a cave. Not far from here, there are also the waterfalls of Erchie. Along the way, there are other trails, such as the one that leads to Avvocata.

Da S. Lazzaro (Agerola) ad Amalfi (6 hours – medium difficulty)

The excursion that makes it possible to discover the Lattari Mountains is certainly more challenging. From San Lazzaro you go straight to the Castello Lauritano (Lauritano Castel) and then you take the path that leads to Monte Murillo (Mount Murillo) and the high way of the Lattari Mountains.

You will be surrounded by the wildest green areas of the Mediterranean vegetation and you will enjoy panoramic views on the Valle dei Mulini (Valley of the Mills) with its rushes and spectacular waterfalls.

Agerola – Acquolella – Pogerola – Amalfi (6 hours – medium difficulty)

If you are not afraid of heights, you can leave from San Lazzaro, go past the Castello Lauritano on the left and take the panoramic junction on the right walking on a paved road and then on a trail that leads higher and higher. Once arrived at Monte Murillo at 910 meters, you start going down along hairpin turns and other paths that surround the valley.
At the junction that leads to Madonna dei Fuondi, you continue to MonteMalegnano(Mount Malegnano) where the spring of Acquolella is ready to host excursionists. Going straight ahead, you can admire the beauty of the village of Scala that is 2 km far from Pogerola. In less than half an hour, you get finally to Amalfi going along the mule track.

Ravello – Atrani via Valle del Dragone (90 minutes – low difficulty)

Trekking and the Amalfi Coast is a perfect match, Ravello in particular where every single noise is a symphony that turns into a soundtrack. From Piazza del Duomo you reach the Chiesa di Santa Maria Gradillo (Church of Santa Maria Gradillo). You turn left and then go down the stairs. At a certain point, you will find a sign with the indication “To Amalfi” on it. There are other stairs and when you start going towards Atrani, that is the moment when the excursion begins. Turn right at the intersection “Ravello-Pontone” and after the first curve go through the Valle del Dragone (Valley of the Dragon).

Before arriving in Atrani, you can see the cemetery and the Chiesa del Carmine (Church of the Carmine). To get to Piazza Umberto I you have a wide range of choices because every path leads to the heart of the village.
