Il Sentiero Degli Dei

Reviewed By moot1 - Bristol, United Kingdom

I've wanted to do this walk for years ,and finally I got the chance. I was not disappointed. We were blessed with beautiful sunny February weather. It takes a fair bit of travelling from Sorrento, but the walk was actually easier and quicker than I'd thought. We walked the route from Nocelle back towards Positano. We used the sunflower guide which I highly recommend. We took the higher route - where the path goes off to the right by a house with a cross in the garden - the signage takes you to the lower route at this point, but apparently the higher route is more spectacular which makes sense, and it was certainly very lovely! The cafe at the end of the route is basic but has a beautiful view too so a good place to stop off before doing the steps down to the road, which was definitely the more tiring bit of the walk. We caught the bus back to Sorrento from a stop at the bottom of the steps rather than in Positano.

Amalfi Coast

Also called the "Amalfi Drive," this coastal route south from Sorrento is one of the most beautiful in Europe.

Reviewed By russypooh - Long Beach, United States

Dramatic jagged cliffs, glistening Mediterranean water, a once in a lifetime trip to the Amalfi Coast. The most exquisite coastlines in the world.

Villa Cimbrone Gardens

Reviewed By lassie64

possibly the nicest thing to do whilst up in ravello. entrance is 7 euros pp and you get to walk around the large gardens and take in the flowers and statues and sculptures etc. best bit is the infinity terrace with amazing views over the amalfi coastline both ways.

Villa Rufolo

Reviewed By emullanseman - Santa Cruz, United States

If you are history buff who takes pleasure in experiencing an antiquity cleansed, purified and brought back to life make your way to Villa Rufalo. Scottish Industrialist, Francis Neville restored the ruins of a former hotel with more than 350 rooms and truly made it shine. The setting is iconic and Overlooks the sea below. Imagine Moorish courtyards, gorgeous gardens, Sicilian and Norman architecture and then envision Richard Wagner walking the grounds inspiring the creation of glorious symphonies. Drink it in, drink it in!

Archaeological Park of Paestum

Founded by Greek colonists, the ancient city of Poseidonia dates from 600 B.C. It was abandoned for centuries, but the remarkably well-preserved Greek temples were excavated in the mid-18th century.

Reviewed By 928massimom - Monza, Italy

3 large Greek temples still standing, a walled Greek and Roman city, absolutely incredible. So much less publicised than other places like Pompeii but no less impressive. The park is almost empty and you can just take your time and explore. The museum opposite is very interesting but prepare for a 30-40 minute wait due to covid distancing. Massive (patronising) tip: if you're going in the summer, bring a bottle of water with you into the park ????

Duomo di Sant'Andrea

Reviewed By Gfazaker63 - Melbourne, Australia

In the Piazza de Duomo in Amalfi you see the steps leading up to the Amalfi Cathedral (Cattedrale Di Sant Andrea) dedicated to the apostle St. Andrew . If you feel fit enough to walk up the steps ( and there are many) it is well worth a visit. The structure dates back to the 9th century and has been changed/ enhanced over many centuries. Reportedly the remains of StAndrew were brought to the Cathedral in the 13th Century. It is a beautiful space and the crypt houses many artifacts. A word of advice is that many school groups visit the cathedral on a daily basis so it might be worth timing your visit for early morning or late afternoon when it is quieter.
