- Difficulty Level
Level 1: Occasional
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain with a few small hills—all very manageable for people trying their first biking trip.
Walking – 6-10 km (4-6 mi.) a day on country lanes, footpaths and coastal or forest trails, all on relatively flat terrain, perhaps with an occasional hill.
Level 2: Recreational
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day over terrain that’s relatively flat but will include inclines and the occasional climb or two.
Walking – 8-12 km (5-7 mi.) a day over relatively flat terrain, with occasional steeper climbs.
Level 3: Enthusiast
Biking – 40-50 km (25-30 mi.) a day in gently rolling countryside, with occasional longer climbs to points that are well worth the effort.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over rolling terrain on a variety of surfaces. Most days, one or two steeper climbs to spectacular viewpoints or places of interest.
Level 4: Avid
Biking – Roughly 50 km (30 mi.) a day in consistently rolling countryside, with repeated climbs and longer options available.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) over terrain that varies between rolling and hilly, with a few steeper climbs.
Level 5: Expert
Biking – 50-60 km (30-45 mi.) a day over both level and tougher, hillier terrain with multiple 100 km (62 mi.) options. The routes are designed for avid cyclists and include plenty of chances to push yourself.
Walking – 11-15 km (7-10 mi.) a day over fairly hilly terrain offering lots of challenges. Routes are along high meadow paths and/or well-maintained cliffside or alpine trails, with a few steep ascents to make you feel invigorated.
Tracking the rhythm of the Med
The Mediterranean has been a hallmark of well-being for centuries, and the Phlegraean Islands in the Gulf of Naples are no exception. History, natural beauty and glamour fuse against the sparkling azure backdrop of the sea. Colourful houses terrace the coastline dramatically while the hoovering volcanoes in the distance draw the eye upward. In this flowering cradle of civilization, you’ll be warmly greeted by the locals and privy to the best coastal secrets: understanding what makes the sirens sing and the lemon trees grow, all in the heavenly rhythm of island time.

Day by Day
Glide over blue waters heading toward stunning Ischia, haven of well-being for thousands of years. On land, strike out on a mountain walk encountering thousand-year-old vineyards and the family that creates some of the best wine on the island.
Rise for early meditation and yoga overlooking the sea. Then onward to the picturesque village of Ischia Ponte and our favourite lunch spot that can only be reached by foot. In the afternoon take some time to understand Ischia's famed reputation as a place of relaxation (see you in the spa)!
Start the day with yoga before heading out on a Catamaran voyage to nearby Procida. Hike through a stringently protected island and take in views of the sparkling bay from our friend's terrace where you'll be immersed in a local-style cooking class.
Take a private boat to Capri where you'll amble the less-explored part of this famous island paradise, passing lemon groves, vineyards and tiny 18thC churches. This afternoon, bliss out in the hotel's award-winning holistic spa.
Walk along a quiet coastal cliff path and take in views of the plunging coastline and sprawling sea. This afternoon more walking is available or another visit to the spa followed by a dip in the pool or along the coast. Tonight you'll dine at the hotel's 2-star Michelin restaurant L'Olivo. Salute!
Capri Palace Hotel & Spa, Anacapri
Located in Anacapri, The Capri Palace enjoys a glamorous presence overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Its boutique feel is accented by the ever-changing art, completed by a roster of contemporary artists. The hotel spa, one of Europe’s most prestigious and modern, serves as the ideal place to relax and rejuvenate after a morning hike up Mount Solaro or along the island’s many coastal walks.
Mezzatorre Resort & Spa, Forio
On the northwestern tip of Ischia, Hotel Mezzatorre is the ideal home away from home. Bathe in its private cove and natural thermal pools, breathe the air fragrant with jasmine and wild thyme, stroll the secluded pine forest and enjoy fine dining and stunning views of the bay from comfortably luxurious bedrooms. The great Italian director Luchino Visconti called this place home because of its intoxicating beauty, and you’ll be happy to seclude yourself in the elegance of what Truman Capote characterized as 'a strangely enchanted place.’
B&R continues to astound my wife and me after many trips, destinations, and experiences with an assortment of guides, all of whom have been stellar in their knowledge and familiarity with sites, places of interest and culture.— Richard Fudge
This walking trip covers a variety of terrain that at times is challenging. The landscape can be quite mountainous, so be prepared for plenty of ups and downs. Those with vertigo may find some of the walks uncomfortable. Daily distances average 5 to 8 km, with some options for less (or more) challenging hikes. A number of our walks are on narrow footpaths along mountainsides, while others follow well-surfaced roads. Hiking boots are required on some walks. Please note that van support is limited on this trip due to the inaccessibility of trails by vehicle.
What’s included? Everything you need. Plus everything you’d
want. Plus a few things you never knew you wanted ‘til you got them.

Sometimes your B&R trip simply isn’t long enough! Extend your stay for the best vacation possible. If you wish to spend a few days in region either before or after your official B&R trip, and need assistance making those plans, your B&R Travel Advisor can help.
Call us to create an independent travel experience that fits your needs—we can also arrange for a local guide.
Spend more time in Amalfi
Naples is a great city and definitely worth a couple days of exploring. It is one of the most populous cities in Italy, with bustling markets, great shopping, labyrinthine streets and a plethora of street vendors. There is an intense cultural tradition in the city owing to the array of people and nationalities that have crossed paths here and left their mark on the palaces, churches, and piazzas. We can also organize a stop in Pompei or Herculaneum and, of course, Rome is just a high-speed train ride away. For those looking for more time along the coast it is easy to extend your visit to include Positano, Amalfi, Ravello for more hiking, boating and delicious food.
