Footpaths and Trekking

On this page you will find information that we have put together on the most famous walking trails of the Amalfi Coast: they merit a visit! These footpaths are not difficult, and the start point of each one can be reached by bus. They are accessible to almost everyone.

Map of the Amalfi Coast walking trails

It is the most scenic and well-known footpath on the Amalfi Coast, connecting two villages: Bomerano (Agerola) and Nocelle. It is certainly worth walking the trail in this direction. You can get to Bomerano from Amalfi by bus. Those folks, who enjoy walking, can get from Fiordo di Furore on foot, although in order to do so, you must first climb some 2,420 steps to achieve a height of 600 metres above sea level. The entire trail is arrowed. A similar set of steps can be found in Praiano, it is impossible to get lost!

  • Level of difficulty: Easy. From Agerola the footpath barely climbs, descending instead.
  • Length: 3.7 miles (6 km).
  • Journey time: 2h 30min.
  • Colour on the map: green.
  • After you get to Nocelle, you can reach Positano in three ways: bus, which passes approximately once an hour (no fixed timetable); taxi, at a cost of 30 euros or by foot, the route of which includes the ascent of some 1,500 steps and a further 0.6 miles (1 km) of walking along the road (indicated by a red line on the map).
  • Current state of trail: open.

Agerola is known throughout Italy for its particular cheese (fior di latte). For that reason, we recommend that you visit a local deli (salumeria - which sells cured meats and cheese) and try (or buy a bit of meat and cheese to take on your picnic on the trail). You won’t regret it!

Amalfi and Atrani are twin villages that don’t lie too far apart. Separated by a single hill, from the Torre dello Ziro you can overlook them both. Under the hill you will find a tunnel thanks to which tourists can pass from one village to the other. Near to the tower, constructed in the 15th century, you can find a piazza from which you can admire both villages from the aerial view. Don’t miss the opportunity to take some unique photos.

Two roads lead from Pontone to the Torre dello Ziro; it can be nice to get there on one road, then come back via the other. Moreover, you will come across small lay-bys from which you can take in the extraordinarily beautiful views of the coastline. You can also take the bus to Pontone, departing from Amalfi. There are some 750 steps to climb in order to get there on foot (all indicated on the map).

  • Level of difficulty: Easy.
  • Length: 1.4 miles (2.2 km).
  • Journey time: 1h 15min. (the outward journey from Amalfi, coming back is a little shorter).
  • Colour on the map: blue.
  • Current state of trail: open.

After visiting the Torre dello Ziro and getting back to Pontone, we recommend that you walk to Amalfi via the Vallone delle Ferriere.

Flowers, rare plants, waterfalls and spectacular views make up this area’s nature unique. All of this is visible along the road that leads from Pontone to Amalfi. It is advised to take the bus from Amalfi to Pontone (or by foot, if you have the strength to climb 750 steps). It is then worth visiting the Torre dello Ziro and only after, during the return journey, descending back to Amalfi along this trail.

  • Level of difficulty: Easy.
  • Length: 3.5 miles (5.7 km).
  • Journey time: 2h 30min.
  • Colour on the map: yellow.
  • Current state of trail: open.

We recommend visiting the Vallone delle Ferriere on the same day as visiting the Torre dello Ziro. Something to think about is dedicating a whole half-day to these two routes to make the most of it.
