Description

There are few places in the world that can be considered as evocative as Naples and the Amalfi Coast. Fewer can still boast breathtaking natural scenery, a vibrant city, a majestic volcano and archaeological traces as fascinating as those of Pompeii. But this land has a cultural heritage to offer that extends to every corner of the region and that goes beyond the worldwide famous Costiera.

What to Expect

With this trekking, we enter the Valle delle Ferriere natural reserve, along a path that leads from the Monti Lattari towards Amalfi, crossing woods and streams.

Along the way we will have some stops to visit Orientata Reserve, the Paper Museum in Amalfi, the centuries-old beech forest of Faito, the Faito village, as well as the Forestry Barracks and many other cultural and natural unique reaources of this territory.
