Tour description provided by G Adventures

Get ready to live like a local on this off-season trip to the hilltop towns and vineyards of the Amalfi Coast, where you'll explore the small towns and trails of this beautiful countryside while experiencing local customs and once-in-a-lifetime moments. Explore the ruins of Pompeii in the morning, hike the coastline of the Med by afternoon, and tuck into bed at your converted 17th-century monastery homebase at sundown. Since this trip takes place in the off season when it's just a bit cooler out, there are fewer people around the Amalfi Coast—meaning you'll have that much more paradise all to yourself.

  • Guided tour of Pompeii
  • Hike along the famous "Walk of the Gods" (weather permitting)
  • Visits to Amalfi, Ravello, and Sorrento
  • Five home-cooked dinners using local organic produce
  • Orientation walk in Naples
  • Transport between destinations and included activities

  • Get cozy at an agriturismo on the amalfi coast
  • Hike the famous "walk of the gods"
  • Explore chic resort towns and historic villages
  • Savour delicious home-cooked italian food made from local ingredients
