Sorrento, Amalfi Coast & Capri: Car Tours and Walks (Sunflower Landscapes)
One of Sunflower's most popular guides ever. Sorrento, Amalfi and Capri are wonderful areas for walkers. Most of the paths can be followed easily by people who do not claim to be regular walkers, though committed hikers will like them just the same. Accident of history and steepness of terrain have preserved a network of ancient footpaths linking the coastal towns of the Neapolitan Riviera and the surrounding countryside. You can either climb almost from your hotel doorstep up into the lemon groves or take a bus into the hills and walk back down. All along the way you will visit hillside villages or remote monasteries and be regaled by the most stunning views. The flowers are a constant delight: from broom and rosemary in March to freesias and cistus in May. In autumn, the woods are carpeted with cyclamen. 7 car tours (with accompanying area maps), 72 walk segments (illustrated in six 'walk planners' and highlighted on the area maps), 17 excursions with picnic. Plans of Amalfi and Ravello, Positano and Sorrento. Free online update service with specific route change information on the publisher's website, maintained daily. The 'Landscapes' series, with 50 destinations, has been dubbed 'the blue Bibles' by the Sunday Times and led to Sunflower being one of only four publishers (from a field of 18) chosen as a Which? Recommended Provider of Guidebooks.
