Tuscany & Cinque Terre

The Amalfi Coast, 34 miles of stunning terrain showcasing vibrant patches of Mediterranean vegetation, soaring coastal cliffs offering unending views of the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean, and 13 vibrant and welcoming multicolored seaside towns– all waiting for you on this unique walking adventure. The Amalfi Coast – an ancient Maritime Republic and crossroads of civilization, current and ancient.

And then Ravello and Positano, where villas and streets hide wonderful places, loved by the artists who have come and gone to find inspiration for their masterpieces. We will travel along paths far from the major tourist flows, giving space to those places where man and nature have coexisted for centuries, albeit in a precarious balance. We will leave the Amalfi Coast to visit Capri, famous for its holidays since Roman times. And Anacapri, which will welcome us with chaotic and colorful streets: two picturesque urban centers enclosed in the island off the coast of Sorrento. Finally, Pompeii and Vesuvius will be transport us back in time to one of the most famous eruptions in the world and to its most important testimony: the remains of a Roman city buried for centuries under meters of volcanic ash.

EXCLUSIVE TO THIS HOLIDAY · Visit to the magnificent Amalfi Coast · Walk the world-famous Path of Gods · Famous limoncello liquor tasting · Local cheese tasting · Visit to the ancient city of Pompei · Walk the ridge of Mount Vesuvius

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most dramatic coastlines in Europe. Mountains jut steeply out of the Mediterranean and picturesque towns nestled in the coves below. Walking the ancient hillsides studded with lemon groves and framed by deep gorges, we descend from the Agerola Plain to the quaint towns of Positano, Ravello, and of course Amalfi itself. No visit to the Bay of Naples would be complete without a trip to see the remains of Pompeii under the imposing volcanic cone of Mount Vesuvius. The highlight of this Amalfi Coast guided walking holiday is saved till last with arguably the world’s best coastal walk: the ‘Walk of the Gods’. Away from the trails we partake in a favorite traditional pastime and sample incredible food and wine as the Italians do.

Day 1 – Venice airport – Dobbiaco. Arrival day

A transfer from Venice Marco Polo Airport – We meet you at Venice Airport and transfer (2.5 hours) to our hotel in Dobbiaco. Welcome talk and dinner in hotel.

Day 2 – Stadlern, Chapels and Churches Walk

From the hotel, we will ascend gently along peaceful country lanes, through picture-perfect Tyrolean villages and hamlets dotted across the hillside – each boasting a lovely chapel or church offering stunning views and decorated with frescoes. At Stadler, we take time over a picnic to soak up the mountain panorama before returning to Dobbiaco alongside the bubbling Rienza River.

Walking time 4.5hr, distance 15km.  – B, L, D

Day 3 – Nemes Alp Walk, Kreuzbergpass

A short bus ride before a spectacular gondola ride this morning to the high Rotwand pastures (1,914m), just below the mighty Croda Rossa limestone peaks. From here it’s a gentle descent along pretty pine-scented forest trails to the ancient Kreuzbergpass, South Tyrol’s most easterly mountain pass. We will then head up to the refuge of Malga Nemes, a fabulous panoramic spot for lunch, with marmots foraging in the open sunny pastures, before descending along a wide woodland track to the Tyrolean village of Moos where we will board the bus back to Dobbiaco.

Walking time 5.5hrs, distance 15km – B, L, D

Day 4 – Bonner Hutte/Pfannhorn/Bergalmhutte

With an ascent of 700m, it’s a tough but entirely worthy pull up to the idyllic Bonner Hutte for a tremendous panoramic lunch overlooking the unmistakable Tre Cime. Those walkers continuing a further 300m climb in altitude (total 1000m) up to the summit of the Pfannhorn, at a lofty 2663m, will be rewarded with a truly unforgettable 360° panorama of the Dolomites and the Austrian Alps – arguably the most expansive view on the whole itinerary. The descent takes you through glorious mountain pastures and the valley bowls of the Bergalm via the isolated little farmstead of Bergalmhutte. We end our walk with a relaxing drink on the terrace of the Seiterhof bar/restaurant before we return to our hotel.

Walking time 4hrs 15min, distance 10.3km or walking time 5hrs 30min, distance 12.6km. – B, L, D

Day 5 – High Mountain Pastures: Cimabianche/Forcella L’Erosa/Cortina d’Ampezzo

Today we’ll head into the heart of the Ampezzo Natural Park in the Italian speaking Veneto region. Setting off from Cimabanche along a disused railway line, we’ll head up through the Gotres Valley on an old military road to reach the high mountain pasture of Forcella L’Erosa. We then descend to the idyllic meadows of Rifugio Ra Stua and follow a narrow forest footpath towards Cortina. Walking time 6hrs, distance 16km.  – B, L, D

Day 6 – Cortina D’Ampezzo

A non-walking leisure day to visit the local area and for free time in Cortina and Dobbiaco.

B only

Day 7 – Mount Elmo and the Klammbachutte Walk: Sillianerhutte/Klammbachalm

This fabulous walk takes us along the impressive crest of the Corniche Alps. We start the day with a short bus transfer then cable car ascent up to Mount Elmo (2041m). From there, an old military supply route takes us to the refuge Sillianerhutte (in Austria). This ridge forms a border between Italy and Austria and offers the most spectacular views across the Austrian Alps. Our descent is on a less well-defined rocky path that crosses the pretty mountain pastures of the Klammbachalm, arriving at the postcard-pretty Klammbachhutte before the forest track back down to the village of Moos.

Walking times 5.5hrs, distance 14km. –  B, L, D

Day 8 – Tre Cime Three Peaks: Cima Nove, Cima Ganda / San Candido

From our hotel, an initial ascent takes us through lush forest, loaded with crimson and violet cones, towards the immense towering peaks of Cima Nove and Cima Ganda. After passing tiny alpine huts and crossing sparkling mountain streams we arrive at the high alpine retreat of Rifugio Baranci (1,499m). From here we meander down to San Candido on a peaceful nature trail to the source of the River Drau. Time to explore this delightful village before joining an old military route from World War I, passing hidden gun towers and emplacements and then back to Dobbiaco.

Walking times 3hrs 45mins, distances 11km. B, L, D.

Day 9 – Departure day: DOBBIACO – VENICE AIRPORT

A transfer back to Venice Marco Polo Airport. We’ll make the 2.5-hour drive back to the airport for our flights home. Or, if you’re staying on after the tour to do your own thing, you can make your way to the city from here.

End of services. B only.
