There is quite a bit of confusion on TA about the trails of Valle delle Ferriere (Valley of the Ironworks) and the Valle dei Mulino (Valley of the Mills) as regards the route and difficulty. This is possibly due to different starting points and merging...More

FYI- you need permission to go past the guards to see the larger of the waterfalls. It's almost a straight shot walking from the center of town/ port of Amalfi. It's a nice hike with lots and lots of stairs. Views of the city are...More

We walked up the Main Street of Amalfi and then followed the signs for the walk. The first set of steps are the most challenging. Quickly you are amongst lemon and lime groves and the view back to Amalfi is wonderful. We stopped at the...More

Had a wonderful visit to this unique corner of the Amalfi coast immersed in a unique nature, we were welcomed by the forestry carabiniere who showed us the the fern plant that only grows there. A big thank you to Marziano, Francesco and Angelo

I just walked the Valle de Ferriere and had no indication that I needed clearance. Pretty sure its ok. Not sure about other trails. I needed a ticket at Cinque Terre trails which I bought at the trail head.
