The Amalfi Coast is a spectacular region in Italy. It’s famous for lemon trees, olive groves, and tiny villages all clinging to dramatic cliffs that tower above the sea.
This beautiful destination is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site – and that’s with good reason. The towns and villages of Amalfi, Positano, and Ravello are linked by clifftop passes and old donkey trails, with each craggy corner unfolding more of this panoramic coastline.
The ‘Walk of the Gods’ descending into Positano is one of the most popular walks on our Amalfi Coast walking holidays, on which the cliffside routes will take your breath away. Head inland and you find vineyards and deep gorges, or follow mule tracks and old trails to picturesque hillside villages.
On your Amalfi Coast holiday, why not unwind in the evenings when you take a seat on a balmy terrace? Tuck into superb Italian cuisine, enjoy a cool drink and relax as you watch the boats in the harbour below.

I loved this holiday and would thoroughly recommend it. The lovely Level 2 walks were accurately described in the itinerary (apart from the paper mill being currently shut). I loved the way we did more than walk – we swam in the sea, ate ice-cream and then had a magical boat trip at dusk back to Amalfi after doing the Path of the Gods. The guides (both Stefano) at Vesuvius and Pompeii were excellent. We seemed to pack a lot in – more than we would have managed if we’d organised it ourselves. The three-star hotel was comfortable and the staff very friendly and welcoming. The food was good and sometimes excellent. It was fun to go into the kitchen on two evenings to “help” with the tiramisu and pizza. We didn’t need 2 first courses / primos a night, though, and often opted to drop one of the four courses or share one of each. I’ve done several Exodus trips now and Vania has been the best guide I’ve had so far. Generous with her time. The weather was mixed. Thank you for jigging the itinerary so that we did the Path of the Gods in beautiful weather. The cloud was down for Vesuvius so we didn’t see as much as we might have done. But the towns were not too busy and we were the only group in the hotel. It was never too hot! A lovely holiday – thank you!

What to wear in Amalfi Coast?
It can be very hot on the Amalfi Coast and UV rays can be high, which means lightweight clothing that covers your skin should be worn when you visit. Be sure to pack a hat and sunglasses to protect your head when exploring throughout the day and then pack your most stylish outfits for the evening time. The Amalfi Coast is known for being a sophisticated destination, so you’ll want to fit in when you visit restaurants and bars along the coast.

What's the weather in Amalfi Coast?
It’s sunny weather for most of the year in this part of Italy. Summer months like July average highs of 29°C and lows of 22°C, which makes it a great time for lying on the beach and exploring the beautiful islands just off the coast.
However, during the cooler months like January, you can expect highs of 12°C and lows of 8°C, which is a mild temperature for taking in all of the cultural sights. There’s a lot of walking required during an Amalfi Coast tour, so some prefer to visit when the temperatures are lower.
