Italy is one of the most enchanting and appealing places in the world.
Italian lifestyle is so rich in culture and charm, and nowhere in the world are mythology, tradition, art, literature, architecture, philosophy and music so close related.
ICNOS Adventures offers centrally located hotels reflecting the character of the cities, well suited to independent travelers, in order to spend mornings for city walks and evenings sipping a glass of wine or savoring a delicious “gelato” or “cappuccino” in the typical Italian bars.

  • “This walking tour was just amazing in every way. Our accommodation was just perfect from the beautiful accommodation in Cava de’Tirreni, with our gracious hosts, to the lovely B&B in Tramonti […]; then the delightful hotel in Amalfi with their enthusiastic welcoming staff, to the lovely small but ever-so-peaceful hotel in Capri with its lovely terrace overlooking the 12th century Carthusian monastery and no TV. This is something that is not important for these enthusiastic walkers! ICNOS give great attention to detail and we cannot fault them in any way – from being met on the train in Naples, met in the various villages at the end of a hard day’s walking or transported to the beginnings of walks at the start of the day by courteous drivers who could speak some English giving us some of the local flavour of the area.
    When you don’t speak the local language it is great to get off a train/boat in a strange land to be greeted by an ICNOS sign with your name on it. It takes the stress out of travel. Also the restaurants that we were booked into to experience the local food were all superb. At the end of a glorious day of walking it is great that we did not have to make further choices about ‘where will we eat tonight’ and to know that we will eat well. As a foodie with a great love of Italian food it was just another enriching dimension to this fantastic trip. All of our routes were well planned and the walking offered many varied experiences – walking through shady woods, through lemon orchards, olive groves, vineyards and the many, many steps (thousands!), with fabulous views along the way. Part of the Amalfi experience! The walking tour requires a reasonable amount of fitness, but not too hard for these retirees. Thank you Marcello and Anna for the wonderful trip and all the organisation that lies beneath making it so successful. It was also great to meet you personally.

  • “Our group of 12 booked theself-guided Jewels of the Amalfi tour through ICNOS following a friend´s recommendation last year to celebrate important birthdays in our lives. The group included two families, the age ranging from 16 to 50 years. The trip had a couple of extras because it included dinners most evenings as well as two extra nights in Sorrento to enable us to visit Pompei and to experience the long-Friday, including the march which takes place that evening in Sorrento, and therefore lasted 9 nights in mid-April 2014. From our first contact with Marcello at ICNOS by email it became apparent that ICNOS operates very professionally. All communication, invoices and printed-materials with directions/information was of a high standard and included necessary as well as added valuable information. To make a long story short: Once we arrived, all organisation via ICNOS was first class. It speaks to ICNOS-staff eye for details that in all the numerous guidelines and endless waypoints we received upon arrival to guide every turn on the way… The walks offerered manyunforgettable viewpoints and visits to beautiful small towns and villages such as Ravello, Pogerola and Nocelle, as well as a scenic walk around Capri. Mid-April proved to be a good time with all sorts of weather, since the main tourist season had not yet begun. Wear good walking boots and expect some heavy rainfall in the mountains. Those who prefer more sun and warm temperatures should probable travel during the summer. The extra-days in Sorrento were also wonderful. We recommend renting a guide for viewing Pompei since the site is much larger than most travellers anticipate. Marcello from ICNOS made contact by telephone several times during our travels to ensure that our trip was proceeding as planned. The jewels of the Amalfi coast are in our judgement certainly among the treasures of Italy. We can recommend the Jewels of the Amalfi tour and the service of ICNOS without any hesitation.
