"Getting there" Top 5 Page for this destination Italy Favorite Tip by iandsmith
Italy General: 753 reviews and 735 photos
Favorite thing: I trudged on and, as luck would have it, I came upon the group of walkers that I had waved to. They were from Australia (mainly Geelong) and their guide Francesco said that the numbers of Australians travelling had increased markedly while Americans were literally scarce on the ground.
Fondest memory: Soon after we came upon two walkers and three mules who were gathering wood. It was fascinating to see it still gathered in such a way in a relatively modern country like Italy, but that's the way life is here above the resorts.
Not long after, civilization beckoned in the form of a village called Nocelle (pic 5). From here you can catch a bus down to Positano but I chose to walk on.
Monte Pertuso came and went (pics 2 & 3) and other cliffs passed, along with natural water springs and religious sites.
From up top you can get a great view of the cemetery, that improbably sited bit of real estate that sits bizarrely beneath a cliff.
