From Amalfi to the Valle delle Ferriere
The starting point of this small but intense journey is Amalfi, a fantastic place where tourists come from all over the world to discover the beauty of the place. It is the best place to start an equally marvellous trek, rich in natural landscapes: the Valle delle Ferriere. Its name derives from a distant past, in fact still today you can find ironworks and ruins of medieval origin.
The valley is located on the border between Amalfi and Ravello, in the middle of the mountains of Scala and is crossed by the Canneto river. Its position in the middle of the mountains has made it possible to preserve the flora of the past centuries, still visible today. Just like the Woodwardia, a plant belonging to the Cenozoic period and the symbol of the Valley. Along the way, you will also encounter different types of animals, such as the Salamandrina terdigitata, a curious local amphibian. During the trek, one can see that the valley almost gives the impression of being in a jungle due to its flourishing nature, waterfalls, water streams and cool environment. It is thanks to the special microclimate that everything in the valley has remained intact over the years.
The route takes about 3 hours and covers 3.2 kilometres. It is a pleasant nature walk in which you visit the most important part of the Valley until you reach the Nature Reserve where you can see the rare plant mentioned above, all this while walking along the river.
Ravello, Tramonti and pizza
One of the most beautiful views of the Coast can be seen from Ravello. But that's not all, Ravello is a town where art and culture mingle with the numerous architectural testimonies that enchant all tourists staying here. The second part of the trip includes a visit to Tramonti with private transfer, a small village characterised by a lot of nature. Unlike Ravello, where the seascape predominates, Tramonti offers a completely different landscape, surrounded by woods and small streams. In fact, the itinerary includes free time for all participants to enjoy the relaxation that is breathed in the valley. It is in this place that at some point during the day you will be able to reach the Trattoria San Francisco, where participants will be able to try an unusual but attractive experience. They will be able to take part in the Pizza Course to learn all the secrets behind the preparation and experiment with the culinary combinations of local products. Moreover, at the end of the course, everyone will be able to eat what they have previously prepared.
This short break gives participants time to spend surrounded by nature, while at the same time allowing them to visit some of the iconic towns on the Amalfi Coast. In addition, local delicacies to taste and a Pizza Course will make the trip even richer and more immersive. In addition to the trekking route in the Valle delle Ferriere, the proposal includes 2 nights in a reserved structure, 1 dinner in a characteristic local trattoria, 1 Pizza Course with relative tasting, wine tasting and transport services.
