Tour Description
This full-day excursion to the Amalfi Coast from Naples will help you discover three of the picturesque villages on the northern coast of the Salerno Gulf, Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi. The small villages dotted along the Amalfi Coastline are dominated by majolica-tiled domes of picturesque churches and are characterized by flights of steps and tiny roads, which lead to elegant houses, breathtaking villas, and luxurious hotels. Accompanied by a local expert, you will learn about the rich historical legacy and charming culture that you'll find in the villages juxtaposed with the deep blue and emerald green waters of the Mediterranean Sea.

You'll be picked up at your Naples accommodation and whisked away for your day exploring one of Italy's most iconic coastlines with your expert guide and private driver. Upon arriving to your first stop, the stunning village of Sorrento, your expert will make every minute count and begin with a walking tour of the heart center of the town. As you meander through the main squares and historic lanes, you'll surely pass Cattedrale di Sorrento, the most important church in Sorrento where a beautiful Neapolitan crib is kept. Before continuing on with your Amalfi Coast journey you may decide to sample some gelato or limoncello at one of the local shops.

Moving on to well-known steep-sloped holiday destination, you'll arrive to the town of Positano where you'll find a pebbled beachfront and plenty of Moorish-style architecture to admire along with the 13th-century Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary, the Church of Saint Mary of the Assumption. Regardless of the season you visit, you'll enjoy the narrow streets lined up with cafes and boutiques, as well as various options for your expert guide to suggest to stop for lunch (at your own expense).

In the afternoon, you'll finish with a visit to the village of Amalfi and dive into its maritime power and high position in medieval architecture. Surely you'll pass the Fountain of Sant'Andrea as well as Duomo di Sant'Andrea, which stands in its glory on a great flight of steps leading up from the main square where its exquisite façade recalls the Bizantine art and northern architecture. 

At the conclusion of your day trip, your expert will deliver you back to your Naples accommodation. With the dramatic topography and rich history fresh in your mind, you'll end your day with a broader understanding of why this coastline has such an allure to visitors and continues to be such a popular UNESCO World Heritage Site.

FAQ 

What is a private tour?
Our private tours are limited exclusively to travelers in your party. Private tours give you more flexibility with scheduling (how long you’d like to spend at each stop) and more personalized time with your guide.

Where do we meet? Where does it end?
You will start and end at your Naples accommodation where you will be picked up by your private driver.

Is the cost of lunch or any tastings included in the excursion?
No, you'll be responsible to cover for the cost of lunch for you and the expert. This day trip is packed with sites and your expert will have recommendations of various local options for lunch depending on your interests.

Does this tour need to be all day?
In order to visit more than one town along the coast, it's important there is time to take into account possible traffic. The Amalfi Coast has become wildly popular over the years, so your expert and driver will do their best to navigate the traffic and stick to the timeline of the tour. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility should they need to adapt due to unforeseen road closures or traffic.

Can I do this excursion starting from Amalfi Coast?
Due to our current policy, we only offer this tour starting in Naples as all of our experts are Naples-based. Thank you for your understanding and we hope to expand to offer Amalfi-based tours in the future.

What if it’s raining?
Tours operate rain or shine, but in the case of inclement weather, your expert will modify the tour so more time is spent indoors. It never hurts to be prepared; we encourage keeping an eye on the weather and bringing along an umbrella, sunscreen, water, or a hat as needed.

Is this tour walking intensive, and/or wheelchair accessible?
We do cover extensive territory on this tour. With so many steep inclines and cobblestoned streets in the towns this tour isn’t recommended to wheelchair users. Please contact us if you have any specific questions regarding accessibility.
