Amalfi coast tour

Judy F. – September 2022

“I can’t imagine doing this tour by ourselves. Driving in this part of Italy is truly a nightmare and our driver was so good at it considering that the logistics getting in and out of Positano were complicated to say the least. Every single day was filled with a surprise and the one thing that I will never forget was the view from our room.”

Thank you for this dream vacation

Patrick W. – September 2022

“My wife and I joined a group of friends on the tour of Naples and Amalfi. We were skeptical about going to Naples after hearing many bad stories, however the way Marco took us around made us feel safe at all times and we really enjoyed the atmosphere of the city. Our hotel had an interior courtyard and we couldn’t hear the traffic despite being right in the middle of everything. Positano was a dream come true, from the view of our room to the cooking class with Jacomo, the boat to Capri, the food, it is hard to pick one highlight. We will come back!”

Day 1 – Welcome to Naples, Positano and The Amalfi Coast Tour

Meals included: dinner

Arrive on your own to Naples’ airport and jump on one of the inexpensive white taxis for a short ride (20 minutes) to the city center.

Your home for the next 2 nights is in an elegant 4-star hotel, an oasis of peace, steps away from Naples’s major attractions.

Late afternoon, join your Tour Manager for a first walk through the little lanes of one of the storied neighborhoods. We end in an historic wood-fired oven of the city where we celebrate with delicious pizza the beginning of our tour .

Day 2 – The vibrant Naples’s Food Market and Street Food scene

Meals included: breakfast and food tour (light lunch)

This morning follow our local guide for an introduction to the folk traditions and to the flourishing art scene that makes Naples a city like no other in Italy.

Our destinations are the vibrant Spanish Quarters and a local food market to sample street food as locals do. We visit a fish stall where deep fried seafood is served in the typical cone-shaped cuoppo. Then we are off to try taralli, a traditional preparation with escarole, stuffed pastries and much more.

This afternoon is yours to explore the buzzing capital of the Mediterranean at your own pace. Maybe you can join an evocative tour of the underground tunnels or visit the Royal Palace (not included). You can also decide to rest a bit in your hotel room before going out again tonight and try one of the cozy restaurants suggested by the tour manager.

Day 3 – Marvel at the Ruins of Pompeii and sip the Wines of Mt. Vesuvius

Meals included: breakfast and lunch

After breakfast, say goodbye to Naples and transfer on a private small bus at the foot of the Vesuvius to the archaeological site of Pompei.

Take a step back in time with a knowledgeable and expert local guide and discover this former Roman city buried by volcanic ash after the devastating eruption of 79 A.D. Walk through the ruins of villas decorated with frescoes and mosaics as you learn how Romans used to live before the dramatic event that killed thousands of people.

Today’s lunch is served in a winery located on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius, whose rich soil full of minerals is key in the production of local traditional wines such as Aglianico, Pedirosso and Lacryma Christi.

Later, drive along the breathtaking Amalfi Coast to the charming village of Positano that has inspired generations of celebrities and artists. From your exclusive sea-view room take in the beauty and admire the maze of steep stairs and alleyways below.

Tonight, dinner is on your own so you can enjoy at your own pace one of the seafood restaurants near the hotel.

Day 4 – Foraging Trekking and Cooking Class near Amalfi

Meals included: breakfast and lunch

Late morning, meet a local gastronomer for an informative foraging trekking through private gardens, lemon orchards and rustic countryside homes reachable only on foot.

We harvest aromatic herbs, fresh basil and some seasonal vegetables before reaching a covered terrace with 180° panoramic views over the Amalfi Coast. Here, we cook some traditional recipes with selected ingredients coming from local food purveyors.

Enjoy your al-fresco lunch surrounded by incredible views that will conquer your senses.

This afternoon we keep driving along the coast spotting private villas, colorful bougainvillea and rock formations, all the way to the town of Amalfi.

Indulge in a tasting of locally-made limoncello and enjoy some shopping time in the narrow streets and piazzas lined up with paper shops, cafes, souvenirs and more.

Dinner is on your own in Amalfi before driving back to Positano.

Day 5 – Let’s splurge on a Private Boat ride to Capri

Meals included: breakfast

Many tourists go to Capri but very few get to do it with a private boat *. Meet your captain in Positano and board our private boat: you can decide if you want to lay on the bow under the sun or if you prefer to sit in the shade of the back. Either way, enjoy the jaw-dropping views of hidden inlets along the Amalfi coastline. Later, we reach the southern coast of the island of Capri with its numerous colorful grottos and evocative rock formations.

We sail to the iconic Faraglioni and you’ll get a chance to swim in a quiet bay, away from crowds. Towels and a refreshing glass of Prosecco are provided!

After docking in Capri, follow your tour manager in the upper town for an introductory walk and spend your free time at your own leisure: maybe a lunch in one of the exclusive restaurants or a hike to the remains of Villa Jovis, once the favorite spot of Roman Emperor Tiberius.

You will be enchanted by the rose gardens spilling over elegant villa walls just steps away from the glamorous fashion shops.

Return to Positano in the late afternoon and enjoy dinner on your own.

*In case of rough sea conditions, for everyone’s safety and well-being, the ride to Capri may be arranged with a public ferry boat (without the chance of swimming and to visit the Faraglioni). In case of bad weather, the Capri excursion will be replaced by another land-based activity. No refunds will be given in either case.

Day 6 – Mozzarella Farm, Greek Temples and Dinner in a Winery

Meals included: breakfast, light lunch and dinner

This morning enjoy a drive to the southern Campania region with its fertile crops and numerous stables of buffalo cows.

Visit a well-established organic farm where every day the world’s famous mozzarella cheese is produced by hand, piece after piece. Sit at the table for a fresh light lunch with a selection of cheese, salad and homemade bread.

This afternoon, meet a friendly local expert in the nearby archeological site of Paestum, where Greek Temples are better preserved than those in Greece! The tour will include a look at the adjacent museum where the iconic “tomb of the diver” is kept.

Relax onboard our small bus as we drive back toward the southern tip of the Amalfi Coast. Meet local host Patrizia who proudly manages her family’s vineyard and lemon grove perched on a slope overlooking the Mediterranean.

Tonight, Patrizia’s mouth-watering dinner is paired with the DOC Amalfi wine, served under a pergola overlooking the coast and the sea.

Return to Positano after dinner.

Day 7 – A day of relax in Positano and Sorrento

(Video) Traveling to Italy's Amalfi Coast: Herculaneum, Sorrento and Positano In November

Meals included: breakfast and dinner

A vacation in Italy wouldn’t be the same without some time off to take in the beauty of the destination and the chance to relax.

Choose among Positano’s linen fashion, art galleries and seaside restaurants, your own way to celebrate the Italian lifestyle.

Later, meet your tour manager and drive to Sorrento for a late-afternoon stroll along Corso Italia and enjoy an aperitivo.
