This 10.5km circuit explores the hills and valleys behind Minori, circumnavigating lemon groves and the ruins of old paper mills. Its peak is the 13th-century Convento di San Nicola, perched high atop the coastline amid pine and oak trees.
Leave the seafront town of Maiori on the well-marked Via dei Limoni before cutting sharply uphill (yes, more of those infamous Amalfi steps) in the hamlet of Torre. Oak and pine trees provide shade as the path ascends steeply to the San Nicola convent located 483m above sea level and accessed via a short spur-trail. The main path then hangs left at a rocky mountain pass and heads down to the small agricultural hamlet of Sambuco. From here, another path descends onto the opposite (western) side of the river valley past a scattering of old paper mills into Minori. For an alternative ending, you can follow the paved road south out of Sambuco and finish in Ravello.
