Sunflower Guide Sorrento, Amalfi & Capri: Car Tours and Walks
May 08, 2009

	Sorrento, Amalfi and Capri is a wonderful area for walkers, brilliantly described by Julian Tippett. Accident of history and steepness of terrain have preserved a network of ancient footpaths which reaches from the coastal towns of the Neapolitan Riviera into the surrounding countryside. These paths take you almost from your hotel doorstep up into the lemon groves. 

You can visit hillside villages or remote monasteries and be regaled by the most stunning of views all along the way. The paths are often paved in stone or, if climbing steep hillsides, consist of flights of steps. The flowers are a constant delight: from broom and rosemary in March to freesias and cistus in May. In autumn, the woods are carpeted with cyclamen. Most of the paths described can be followed easily by people who do not claim to be regular walkers, though committed hikers will like them just the same. If you're having a 'lazy' day, you can just take a bus up into the hills and walk back down to your hotel.
