Off the beaten track
on 25 September 2014
We saw so many amazing things as a result of this book; and it was great as we were in a touristy area, to get away from the crowds and explore the real side of the country.
A word of warning, the difficulty ratings are quite underplayed, especially in a region that is very warm in summer. There was one "moderate" walk which was extremely hard, and a couple of routes described as ascending gently which we took for a break from tough walking and regretted it. The views were worth it, but the moderate to hard routes are not for the faint-hearted.
The directions were sometimes a bit difficult to follow, and could do with some landmarks to reassure you that you had taken a correct turning.
All in all, I would definitely recommend this to friends visiting Sorrento, but warn them to try a few easy routes first!
