Walking and trekking are one of the main attractions of Agerola: the paths which are suspended between the sky and sea, are in fact the preferred destination for an ever increasing number of walkers, and in a short amount of time it is possible to wind amongst the luscious vegetation of the Lattari Mountains and down towards the clear blue waters of the Amalfi Coast. Not only breathtaking views, but culture, art and thousand years old traditions are also on offer: on request the hotel can organise excursions led by expert guides in the local area so that you can enjoy the breathtaking views offered by the Path of the Gods, Paipo, the Lauritano Castle, Mt Vottara and the artistic treasures of secluded little churches and imposing castles.

Along the way one reaches the “Biscuit’s cave” (Grotta del Biscotto) where geological rocks and ancient wellings embedded on them can be admired. After passing over the Colle Serra crest the amazing and unique panorama overlooking the Sorrentine Peninsula is simply divine.
