Know More about this tour

First, meet our representative at Rome’s Termini Station where you will benefit from fast transportation via high-speed train to Naples. After meeting your local guide right at the Naples train station, you will drive out of the city on a comfortable private coach, past Mt. Vesuvius and slowly enter the winding roads and lemon orchards that characterize this part of the Campania region as you hear the local history and get insider recommendations from your guide. Along the way you’ll even have the chance to stop for amazing photo-ops at the most evocative panoramas.

The Amalfi Coast is home to some of the most beautiful scenery that Italy has to offer, and in the ‘Bel Paese’ that is saying a lot. It is a narrow stretch of land on the southern side of the Sorrento Peninsula between lush peaks reaching heights of over 4,000 feet that seem to dive into emerald waters, secluded bays and cozy beaches, with tiny pastel villages springing up here and there all the way down.

The first stop is the most picturesque town on the entire coast, Positano, whose houses seem to tumble down into the sea amid narrow alleyways, chic boutiques, typical restaurants, and ‘Dolce vita’ cafés. 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 people watch from a restaurant terrace.

Your next stop will be 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 will also be able to 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, the tiny bay is an inviting place for a dip!

After taking in the crown jewels of the Amalfi coast, you will travel up the verdant mountains that cradle it to take in more incredible views of the sky and sea below. Here you will have the rare privilege to see how one of Italy’s most famous foods is made from a real local cheesemaker. We are of course speaking of real Buffalo Mozzarella cheese! Also known as ‘the queen of Mediterranean cuisine’, this delicacy is made with pure buffalo’s milk, and it will be hard to go back to the stuff you get back home once you’ve tried it. Try other delicious locally produced cheeses like the ‘caciocavallo’, as you browse through this amazing family-run shop. 

See the Amalfi Coast as never before and let your senses by captivated by the sights, sounds and flavors that have made it so cherished on this comprehensive guided day tour from Rome that is sure to be the highlight of your trip to Italy!

  • AHHHHHHMAZING AMALFI!!! Loved this tour from the word go. First point of contact was at train station in Rome where we were informed due to regional fires the Positano part would be cxld and rather we would go to Ravello. We boarded the train with guides directing us all the way through and met up with another CityWonders guide Chess at Naples station. LOVED HIM. Enthusiastic and passionate about his job and the region. We boarded our luxury tour bus and swept through all the while having Chess' knowledge and anecdotes entertain us through the course of the day. The mozzarella stop was fantastic where we sampled the best mozzarella we've eaten. They also made the best provolone and we purchased some to take back to the US... they vacuum sealed it for us. Amalfi was gorgeous but little busy due to the time of year July so little more touristy than we hoped. The boat tour was a nice surprise and a bonus where we viewed the Amalfi coast from the Mediterranean. Our final stop was Ravello which was GORGEOUS. Although by then, we were pretty wiped out so just chilled in a local cafe and enjoyed the most amazing sites you'll see. If you're in Rome and have an extra day to spare - you must do this tour! AND Chess played a little Dean Martin on our way back which was so much fun!

  • This was awesome! Our tour guide, Claudio, was very funny and helpful. If he suggests taking the boat at the Amalfi Coast, go for it. It was so worth it :)

  • This was a great tour of Positano and Amalfi. Our guide was Fabian and he was very informative and knowledgeable but at the same time, personable where you felt comfortable with him and felt as if he was just a local wanting to show you a good time. I felt some tour guides on my other tours were so history/info rich that it made the tour boring and felt as if I was back in school listening to a lecture. We left Rome to Naples on a high speed train 1 hour train ride and met Fabian, from there we took a bus to Positano another hour and stopped off for about 2 hours to explore on our own. Positano was gorgeous, no words can describe the views. Then after 2 hours in Positano, hopped back on the bus for another 45-50 mins to Amalfi. We had two hours on our own at Amalfi, again, views are out of this world. Then left Amalfi to head back to Naples train station to make our way to Rome.

    PROS:
    1. Professional guide Fabian and his driver, Raphael, was a superstar driver, got us around the coast safely. Those windy curves can be very dangerous and I would not want to drive on my own, and I am from LA.
    2. Made stops for us to take pretty pictures. Stopped off at Lemoncello Factory to taste free lemoncello. It was kind of crowded and chaotic at the factory but it was nice to taste samples of the drink and sample some chocolate which were yummy.
    3. Gave us 2 hours in Positano and Amalfi to explore on our own. You can grab lunch, swim, take in the scene, without having to follow the group or listen to tour guide.

    CONS:
    1. Kind of pricey since all we are basically paying for is the transportation from Rome to Positano and Amalfi. But I guess it is fair because renting a car and driving yourself can be hectic and stressful, unless you are a local and know your way around.

  • Great tour - specially the cheese and wine tasting!

  • Excellent tour and our guide Claudio was fun, informative and helpful. Quality of the bus and its driver was high.

    Selecting among the Almafi day tour options, I was not sure if this might have the best itinerary, but after I feel I made the right choice for the following:

    1 Going thru Napoli station, you get a glimpse of another major Italian city. From this routing you can see Mt. Vesuvius while hearing of its story.

    2 Using a bus vs. boat, I think maximizes personal time to enjoy Positano and Amalfi towns as you don't need to wait. The bus is always waiting.

    3 The mozzarella cheese tour was interesting. Actually inside a family house that has one floor with manufacturing with residential quarters upstairs and adjacent to the manufacturing area., you got see an actual house in the picturesque hill side towns.
