A popular highlight on our Italy small group tours is the sprawling network of clifftop walking trails along the sun-drenched Amalfi Coast. Embark on the spectacular ‘Walk of the Gods’ so named for its lofty pathways and far-reaching vistas over the glistening Tyrrhenian Sea. A day trip to Capri island will take you beyond trendy boutiques and fancy restaurants into a labyrinth of cobbled streets and white-washed walls draped in bright bursts of bougainvillaea flowers. Look back at the mainland’s towering limestone cliffs and view tiers of colourful apartments vying for the best ocean view.
