Backordered Title, Not on our shelves: Call to check availability.


The 32 routes in this guidebook explore the coastline between Sorrento and Amalfi, together with the islands of Capri and Ischia. Ranging from 3km to 11km, the hikes are all designed to be fitted into a single day, with a panoramic picnic stop halfway round and perhaps a plunge into the sparkling Mediterranean at the end. Hikes are graded on a scale of 1-3 and are suitable for a range of abilities, from family strolls to strenuous treks across rugged terrain. 

Recognised as a World Heritage Site, the steep southern edge of the Sorrento peninsula on the Gulf of Naples is famous for its medieval villages perched atop plunging cliffs, with their near-vertical vineyards and lemon orchards and the famous volcano Vesuvius an ever-present backdrop. 

Split into the five sections of Ischia, Capri, Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi, each hike includes relevant public transport information as well as a sketch map. The book also provides local and practical information, accommodation options and an Italian–English glossary.
