The Amalfi Coast's Big Three
Your remarkable and unforgettable journey begins as you leave Naples behind for a scenic, comfortable ride along the Amalfi coast with its breath-taking views. Your first stop will be the coastal town of Sorrento where you can observe the eclectic mix of traditional atmospheres with new world conveniences as you stroll through narrow streets bursting with artisan shops. With its beautiful location on the north coast of the peninsula, the small community of Sorrento is perfectly situated looking out over the Bay of Naples, Mount Vesuvius, and the Isle of Capri. It is hard to imagine a more perfect setting than this. Pop into a small factory and savor a Limoncello before heading to the seaside town of Positano.
This cliffside village is placed on southern Italy's Amalfi Coast with a pebble beachfront and steep, narrow streets lined with boutiques and cafes. Discover a 13th-century Byzantine icon of the Virgin Mary and the Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta featuring a majolica-tiled dome. Positano is known for its glitterati so keep your eyes open for a celebrity or two! Walk down to the beach to admire the pastel colored houses lining the sheer cliffs. You can also check out the glamorous restaurants and upscale shopping haunts. Not to be missed are the Moda Positano, traditional Positano clothing with vibrant colors and natural fibers.
From there you will head to the large town of Amalfi, stopping along the way for a delicious lunch at a breathtaking seaside terrace. You will get a sense of grace along with beauty in Amalfi as you admire the cluster of white buildings that gleam along the coast. More level than the other stops you will make, Amalfi town ambles up the hillside from the water rather than clinging vertically to it making it a bit easier to walk. One of the most historic towns along the Amalfi Coast, Amalfi was a trade bridge between the Byzantine and western worlds for centuries. Be sure to visit St. Andrew's Cathedral, this 9th century Roman Catholic church contains a mother of pearl crucifix brought over from the Holy Land as well as the remains of Saint Andrew. Conclude your time in Amalfi with local handmade ice cream on the beach before returning to port.

A very good tour with a more-than-delicious pasta lunch on a beautiful patio overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Loved our visit to Sorrento, especially, and seeing the lemon and orange trees full of fruit made the taste of limoncello that much better! Views of Naples and Mount Vesuvius were spectacular! The only disappointment was not getting to visit Positano due to an avalanche after hard rains. 😢

We loved the itinerary. The food, views and ambiance at our lunch stop were spectacular. Our guide could have been more talkative/informative.

We really enjoyed the Amalfi coast tour. Our guide was very informative and everyone was able to keep up with the tour. The only exception was lunch. The restaurant was very warm and the food very bland.
