Costiera Amalfitana & Matera Trekking
December 4, 2020 - December 13, 2020
XirCammini will be combining 2 trekking experiences in la costa amalfitana and matera combining scenic panoramas of spectacular beauty across land and sea and also stepping back in time (the 9th century home to the remains of St. Andrew).
Some general points of interest regarding these treks:
- We’ll stay in agritourismi / B&Bs in a town within walking distance from San Lazzaro and the spectacular Amalfi coast panorama;
- We will trek the Sentiero degli Dei (God’s Pathway), known as such for its outstanding panoramic beauty. This is a 13km trek from Bomerano to Positano. Depending on weather conditions we can also enjoy a boat tour of the Costa Amalfitana.
- We will also hike through Vallone delle Ferriere (the valley of foundries) also known as Vallone dei Mullini (Valley of Mills), a wooded valley of chestnut trees and ferns with remains of medieval foundries and water powered paper mills. This hike is approximately 12km and we will finish our trail in the city of Amalfi providing us with enough time to visit the medieval Duomo (Cathedral) di Amalfi.
- We’ll walk through the lemon paths of Maiori e Minori and visit Ravello.
- Depending on weather and/or visibility we will also have time for one final walk on the West coast before travelling to Matera. Weather / conditions permitting we’ll visit Vesuvius.
- We’ll visit the grotte Pertosa and Matera and
- Trek the Murgia Sentiero.
