Overview

Franco De Simone trek guide in the Amalfi Coast, with 12 years of trekking experience and certified by the Italian Excursion Federation, Franco De Simone is well qualified to guide you through the mountains of Positano. His friendly, personable nature and English & Italianlanguage skills will put you at ease and enable you to enjoy breathtaking panoramic views and sample some of the local organic food. Take this time away from the bustling and thriving resort areas and ever busy roads to get a real feel of the glorious mediterranean vegetation, amidst the dazzling rocks which have given these mountains their name. You will see places of unequalled beauty, rich in history and culture. Our mountain walks are never too difficult and therefore suitable for anyone with minimum experience and fitness. We can cater for individuals, families and group. For each person participating in the trek a minimal amount of equipment is needed to make the excursion both safe and enjoyable. We recommand shoes that are suitable for trekking, appropirate clothing and a jacket. For the summer period it is advisable to bring a good supply of water.
