At Responsible Travel, we think the best people to advise our travellers are often... other travellers. They always return from our tours with packing tips, weather reports, ideas about what to do - and opinions about what not to.
We have selected some of the most useful Amalfi Coast travel advice that our guests have provided over the years to help you make the very most of your holiday.
“The combination of mountains and coast means that you can experience every sort of weather in one day. So apply sun cream first thing, dress in layers, and have an umbrella or pakamac in your pocket. When walking in the hills or up Vesuvius, think skiing – if you let anything slip it could quickly be lost forever, so I had my glasses on a chain and used the wrist strap on my camera, etc. And keep 50c coins handy for automated public toilets!” - Juliet Dunn
“Be prepared for hundreds of steps but well worth the climb up and down as every view is stunning - he views from the last two walks were spectacular - Valle delle Ferriere and Sentiero degli Dei” – Hannah Wilson.
“Go early or late in the season (we went in early May) as I imagine it gets rather too hot to walk comfortably in high summer. Take an early bus to Ravello and you will be rewarded with glorious peace and quiet before the crowds arrive. Read the walking directions thoroughly and take up the recommended restaurants en route. You really will not regret it” - Anne Hazzard
