First, meet our representative at Romeâs 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 youâll 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 âBel Paeseâ 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 âDolce vitaâ cafÃ©s. Come here, and itâs easy to see why. Its charm will seep into your pores as you shop for local âlimoncelloâ, 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 (âDuomoâ) to visit its arabesque cloister, as well as shop for Amalfiâs famous handmade âbambaginaâ 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 Italyâs most famous foods is made from a real local cheesemaker. We are of course speaking of real Buffalo Mozzarella cheese! Also known as âthe queen of Mediterranean cuisineâ, this delicacy is made with pure buffaloâs milk, and it will be hard to go back to the stuff you get back home once youâve tried it. Try other delicious locally produced cheeses like the âcaciocavalloâ, as you browse through this amazing family-run shop.Â
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!
