1st Day: Naples
Arrival in Naples and transfer by bus to your farm house in hamlets such as Massaquano, S. Maria del Castello, Massa Lubrense, or Agerola, situated on the outskirts of Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. Accommodation, dinner and overnight-stay.
2nd Day: Punta Campanella
After breakfast, departure for Termini, meeting with guide and departure for the excursion to Punta Campanella.
We will travel along a picturesque path of natural, historical and archaeological interest, (about 5 hours for a distance of about 6,5 Km.) Walking towards Mitignano you can admire the typical vegetation of the Mediterranean Scratch.
Nearby Punta Campanella this thick vegetation lessons and allows you wonderful views of wild olive, myrtle, juniper and rosemary trees. Walking along the extreme side of Punta Campanella, where the temple of Minerva Tirrena once stood, we will visit the ruins of a Roman villa, Greek in origin. Return to the meeting point and then to the farm for dinner and overnight-stay.
3rd Day: Valle del Pozzo
After breakfast, departure by bus to the small square of Montepertuso, where the excursion will start.
We will walk through myrtle, arbutus and juniper bushes on a simple path (40 min. 1,5 km) to arrive at the detour for Valle Pozzo, a small and steep gorge (path medium-high difficulty, gradient 280 mt. – 1,00 km, 60 mt.) that clambers up through oak-trees and chestnut-trees to Santa Maria del Castello, a small hamlet of Vico Equense which straddles the gulf of Naples and the gulf of Salerno.
In the centre of this hamlet, stands a church, a beautiful example of Baroque architecture and on the southern side of this church is a spectacular view of Positano and of the Galli’s islands and Montepertuso,(a large crevice formed by natural erosion). After a break, we will walk for about 800 m. before beginning the descent to Positano, along the path of Capo d’Acqua, a 40 minute descent of 1.5 km, walking through a thick chestnut wood. Transfer back to your farm for dinner and overnight stay.
4th Day: Faito’s Circuit
Breakfast and bus transfer to Castellamare di Stabia and meeting with our guide for the excursion to Faito’s Circuit. We follow the old path, which connects Piazzale dei Capi to the small church of S. Michele, along the ridge and hike up in the shade of beech trees, where the excursion begins. We will observe a spectacular view of Vesuvius, the volcano that dominates the landscape of the Bay of Naples.
More strenuous is the pathway that leads to Mount Molare, therefore reaching the summit is optional. At this point the path provides very different views, stretching from the Bay ofNaples to the Bay of Salerno, including the diverse vegetation of sparse wood and scented Macchia. Our path now becomes easier and descends downwards along a stony, winding road, passing the valley of Casa del Monaco. The final stretch of pathway is wide and comfortable as it is always in the shade of beech trees as far as Campo del Pero, which brings us back to our starting point. Return to the farm for dinner and overnight stay.
