ITINERARY

DAY 1 | ARRIVE INTO NAPLES

Welcome to Naples!

We pick you up in the arrivals area of the airport (you won’t miss us!) and whisk you to our hotel in the central part of the city.

Check in and relax before meeting with your fellow group for an introduction and briefing by your Pure Trails guides. In the afternoon, the group will head out into Naples for a slow-paced running exploration to stretch legs and grab a slice of arguably the best pizza in the whole of Italy.

DAY 2 | FERRY TO SORRENTO. TRAIL RUN TO COLLI DE FONTENALLO

Trail Running: Approx. 17km

We’ll check out of our hotel this morning and load our luggage into our vehicle for transfer.

We’ll make our way by foot to the harbour and take the ferry across the bay to Italy’s most famous resort town of Sorrento. We’ll check the place out as we pass through and then start on the trail. We’ll run across the pensinula and pick up a beautiful mountain trail that takes us to the charming hamlet of Colli de Fontenallo where our vehicle will be waiting for us.

We’ll transfer by road to our accommodation in the hillside of Agerola for checking, time to relax.

DAY 3 | PATH OF THE GODS VIA POSITANO

Trail Running: Approx. 22km

We have a showstopping day ahead of us as we trail run the iconic Path of the Gods trail via Positano all the way back to our hotel in Agerola.

The trail is one of the finest coastal trails in the world as we flow our way Positano with beautiful views of the Bay of Salerno and Capri. This is a high cliff trail which passes through a changing array of terrain; limestone cliffs, old villages and flower gardens.

We reach Positano which was a poor fishing village until the 1950s, now it’s glamour sparkles with chic shops, bars and restaurants.

We’ll relax here for a bit, before continuing on the trail all the way to our hotel in Agerola.

Time to relax, with drinks on the terrace overlooking the Bay of Salerno to toast a perfect day.

DAY 4 | CITRUS TRAIL TO AMALFI

Trail Running: Approx. 16km

After breakfast this morning we’ll start running directly from our hotel, following a trail that heads inland and into forest groves. Before long we start descending with the beaches of Amalfi laying way below us.

We continue downwards until we reach the picture perfect town of Amalfi, dramatically backdropped with the limestone cliffs behind it.

We’ll celebrate finishing out journey with time on the beach, before heading by vehicle back to our hotel for time to relax and toast a fantastic trip.

DAY 5 | DEPARTURE DAY

It’s time to pack up and bid farewell to your newfound trail-running friends and our local team. A group transfer is arranged for you back to Naples International Airport (NAP) in time to connect with your onward flight back home.

Naples Airport

Naples airport is a 15-minute drive from the centre of town on our arrival day. We'll be running a group transfer at a set time (for late morning - time TBC), however if your flight arrives much later in the evening it's very easy to jump in a cab and meet us directly at our hotel.
