Good rough path. Along the coast, but not flat, rather it goes up and down a lot. Southern part at/near the rocky shore, medium part in wild forest, northern part between small farms. I prefer to walk from south to north, due to the long...More

This is the third time that we walk the Fortina Coastal Walk (Sentiero dei Fortini Borbonici) and it is even more beautiful in October (the two previous walks was in March). Everything is greener and the see is bluer. The trail is rather steep and...More

A beautiful Walk with many very helpful explanations on „flora et fauna“ along the way. Not crowded, the Sentiero de Fortini offers great views and some nice sport.

We started the walk around 10am in August and immediately started sweating. However, we enjoyed every minute of the walk! It's not good for young children or people scared of heights. You do walk pretty close to the edge of the cliffs. That said, I'm...More
