Day 2 | Walk Valle delle Ferriere to Ravello: 10 km / 6 mi

Today you will hike along the beautiful Ferriere Valley, which is the ancient “Amalfi industrial area.” In this area, numerous mills produced iron and paper using power from the Canneto stream. We recommend a visit to the Museum of Paper in Amalfi, which retraces the history of these very mills. You will soon reach Ravello, located at 350 m above sea level. Explore this village with an optional visit to “Villa Cimbrone” and “Villa Rufolo.” The walk ends in Minori.
