It's not a tremendously demanding ride, but you do need to be able to ride 30 miles a day and climb a hill or two. Local benefits? We did spend money in local cafes and retaurants, and biking's definitely better than car or coach. I would have liked to see fewer disposable cups and other items in the hotels though. Overall...

Amalfi Coast sailing vacation, Italy
From

excluding flights
Memorable parts? Great scenery and views, superb to see the coast from a boat. Tips? Be aware that although a sailing trip, there is not much sailing. Local benefits?

But great way to see the Amalfi coast. I don't think I would do the same trip again or a similar one. (more)Karen Fenton
