This excursion is a bit particular, for most of the route we will walk on country lanes, long stairways and ancient streets between the various villages inhabited, there will be many ancient churches that we meet on our way.  


Then get your cameras ready and they will work a lot today.  


The first part of the excursion is the Path of the Lemons. This route was also originally a mule track, but this time it connects the village of Maiori with its "twin neighbor": Minori.

Stunning View of Sorrento

It is a fairly easy excursion, there are no great challenges.

 

The route is characterized by the typical pergola terraces, by the silence, by the colors and by the scents. It is an immersion in the traditions and culture of terracing, we will see olive trees, vines and of course we will be able to appreciate the lemon, "the gold of the Amalfi Coast", known throughout the world since Roman times and subject to I.G.P. (Protected Geographical Indication). Once arrived in Minori, the Path of the Lemons ends, but we will keep walking.

In this second part of the excursion, we will start from the village of Minori and after long staircases and ancient alleys we will reach another pearl of the Amalfi Coast the beautiful Ravello (1500 Stairs), passing through the famous Auditorium of Niemeyer we arrive in Piazza del Duomo, where we can have lunch in the beautiful square.

At 9:00 (times of ferry is subject to change) you will take the ferry from the harbor of Sorrento and in less than 30 minutes you’ll disembark in Capri.

Today's amazing trail will be "Il Senteiro dei Fortini" a trail on the west side of the isle of Capri from south to north passing coves with turquoise waters and old forts (hence the name!)

The famous Caprese Convertible Taxis will transfer you on the western side of Capri where a surprisingly attractive path, rich in history and enhanced by unique vegetation with intense fragrances and colours of Mediterranean scrubland is waiting to be walked.

 

The "Sentiero dei Fortini" runs along the western coast and passes by a series of old blockhouses ("fortini"). These were built at the time of the Saracen invasions, and they were converted into short range artillery forts by the English and French during the Napoleonic wars. The path goes through deep coves with crystal blue water and limestone rocky promontories where you pass by the "Fortini" from where the trail gets its name. After this amazing trail your Caprese Taxi will bring you to Capri to experience "La Dolce Vita"

This excursion is certainly the most demanding one. It's for trained people, who want to discover the wildest nature of the Lattari Mountains.

The Path of the Gods is among the best known of the Amalfi Coast and therefore also among the most "crowded", but not everyone knows that the circuit of 3 Hills is in fact more panoramic, as it overlooks it in altitude.

We start the hike from the square of Bomerano at 600m of altitude, go up on the roadway and continue along a mule track, through mixed woods, coppice chestnuts and holm oaks.

The path leads us to the first peak of the 3 hills (1,122 mt.), beautifully overlooking the coast.

 

We are all rewarded by an enchanting view, a stunning window opens onto the entire Amalfi Coast: Capri, Sant'Angelo a tre pizzi , the highest peaks of the Lattari Mountains, Vesuvius, Cilento coast ... in short, it is an experience that takes your breath away! Afterwards you cross Monte Calabrice (1145 m) to reach the Capo Muro saddle (1072 m). The path back to Bomerano is initially a steep descent on rock and stony ground which then becomes a rolling road, until we reach the Bomerano square again.

In fact, during the walk, you reach the old temple dedicated to the goddess Athena.

The excursion to Monte San Costanzo, in addition to offering incredibly panoramic views of the Gulf of Naples and Capri, is rich in history; the many legends that can be told are very intriguing. We can imagine the reign of the mythical Sirens and the navigation of Ulysses, while the olive trees and plants typical of the Mediterranean scrub surround us.

Once at the tower, you keep hiking along the ridge which is a path suitable for expert hikers, an unpaved dirt ground with a low grade slope, you will arrive at the Chapel of San Costanzo. Along this hike we are also surrounded by the plants of the Mediterranean scrub, especially the asphodel, a "special" plant, widely used in Ancient Greek times because it was found in the places chosen for the burial of loved ones.

Once on Monte San Costanzo we will stop for a break with a 360 ° view of the Amalfi Coast, the Gulf of Salerno, the Lattari Mountains, Sant’Angelo a tre pizzi, Vesuvius and the islands of Ischia and Procida. What marvelous scenery!
