The Amalfi Coast is home to some of the most beautiful scenery the world has to offer. Its lush peaks reaching heights of over 4,000 feet seem to dive into emerald waters, secluded bays and cozy beaches, with tiny pastel villages springing up here and there all the way down. Its beauty and harmony will mesmerize you. Our Amalfi Coast tours from Naples offer comfortable transportation by private coach as well as free time to explore tiny picturesque streets, all with a passionate guide to bring your experiences to life.
After meeting in central Naples, you’ll drive out of the city, past Mt. Vesuvius and slowly enter the winding roads and lemon orchards that characterize this part of the Campania region. Listen to the local history and take note of insider recommendations from your guide so you’ll know where to go for the best food and avoid the tourist traps. Along the way you’ll also have the chance to stop for amazing photo-ops at the most evocative vista points.
The first stop is the most picturesque town on the entire coast, Positano, where pristine houses seem to tumble down into the sea amid narrow alleyways, chic boutiques, typical restaurants, and ‘Dolce vita’ cafés. Despite its present glamor, Positano was once a nearly abandoned fishing village until it was ‘rediscovered’ by international jet-setters, filmmakers and writers, making it a haven for the elite. Come here, and it’s easy to see why. Its charm will seep into your pores as you shop for local ‘limoncello’, visit the church of Santa Maria Assunta or soak it all in from a restaurant terrace.
Your next stop is the former capital of the maritime republic that gave the whole area its name, the town of Amalfi. Once one of the most important trading powers in the Mediterranean, this port city in miniature is home to a dazzling piazza, pristine medieval cathedral and streets that will captivate you with their fairytale-like flavor. Here you’ll also have free time for lunch, climb the immense staircase to the Cathedral (‘Duomo’) to visit its arabesque cloister, as well as shop for Amalfi’s famous handmade ‘bambagina’ paper. If you prefer to relax on the beach, its tiny bay is an inviting place for a dip.
After taking in the crown jewels of the Amalfi coast, you’ll travel up the tall verdant mountains that cradle it to take in more incredible views of the sky and sea below. Savor the rare privilege to meet a local family-run cheesemaker and see how one of Italy’s most famous foods is made, as well as try it for yourself. Also known as ‘the queen of Mediterranean cuisine’, real Buffalo Mozzarella cheese is made with pure buffalo’s milk, and it will be hard to go back to the stuff back home once you’ve tried it. Buy some cheese if you wish, then hop back on your private coach with your guide and enjoy the ride back to Naples.
