1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Most exciting was definitely Walk of the Gods, from Bomerano where we stayed to Positano over 2000' down on the coast. Fantastic views surrounded by wildflowers and herbs, across precipitous slopes and finally descending steps through cacti gardens from Montpertuso. But I also have to say I was surpised by how attractive Naples was, with its very elegant seafront.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this 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 wriststrap on my camera, pinned on my sunhat, etc. Keep 50 cent coins handy for automated public toilets!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes! all our guides and drivers were local and tourism was the major source of income for them. Using a small minibus was much more environmentally-friendly than independent travel, and it reduced number of vehicles on twisty mountain roads. Itinerary was well thought out, eg using local ferries to return to base.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Excellent, can't think why it didn't occur to me to visit this area before.
