#6. Italy’s Amalfi Coast
The pastel buildings cascading down precipitous hillsides into the glittering Mediterranean, the seaside cafés, the limoncello: In order to properly absorb this Platonic ideal of a Mediterranean interlude, take to it by foot. Butterfield & Robinson brings unforgettable touches to a six-day walking tour of the Amalfi Coast: private boats to shuttle travelers, overnights at some of the area’s most storied hotels (Le Sirenuse in Positano, for one), and intermittent surprises during daily hikes and walks. Ground covered on foot tops out at five miles per day (and sometimes less), which leaves plenty of time for relaxing at the hotel du jour and exploring Positano, Ravello, Capri, and other stops along the way.
