If you want to take a more relaxed approach to your hiking holiday and don't like to hike from place to place with luggage, you might be interested in a variant with fixed accommodation instead of a long-distance hike. To cover the entire hiking route with individual day hikes from a fixed starting point, however, two different stops and numerous bus trips are necessary! The journey times by bus should not be underestimated: in some cases, 60 min official travel time is to be expected (not counting traffic jams on the narrow coastal road). For each hiking day, you should therefore allow about 2 hours extra for the outward and return journeys.
In the following table, all bus connections from Amalfi or Sorrento to the respective start and end points of the stages are linked. It is therefore theoretically possible to do the entire long-distance hike from two overnight accommodation locations, but it is quite complicated. Either plan enough time for this or do without one or two stages. Recommendation: Book the overnight stays first and then decide spontaneously on the spot.
|Starting point / Overnight stay||Stage for the day||Directions (link to moovitapp.com)||Return journey (link to moovitapp.com in each case)|
|Amalfi||Stage 1||SITA bus to Raito/Vietri sul Mare||SITA bus from Maiori|
|Amalfi||Stage 2||SITA bus to Maiori||-|
|Amalfi||Stage 3||-||SITA Bus from Bomerano|
|Amalfi||Stage 4||SITA bus to Bomerano||SITA bus or boat from Positano|
|Change of location from Amalfi to Sorrento||SITA Bus to Sorrento|
|Sorrento||Stage 5||SITA bus to Colli S. Pietro||SITA bus from Sant'Agata sui Due Golfi|
Attention: The stage destination Schiazzano is poorly served by public transport, so you should continue hiking from Torca to Sant'Agata.
|Sorrento||Stage 6||SITA bus to Termini||-|
