Top Tours & Activities in Amalfi
Located an hour south of Naples, Amalfi is undoubtedly one of the most enchanting cities on the Italian coastline. With cream-colored villas tumbling down to clear blue waters, this town is a paragon of Italian seaside splendor. See for yourself!
Though the entire European rim of the Mediterranean is gorgeous, the Amalfi Coast, with dramatic mountains and white sand beaches, is really something special.
A central landmark in Amalfi, the Amalfi Cathedral dates all the way back to the 9th century and features a fascinating mix of architectural influences.
Located in a river gorge, this impressive Benedictine monastery contains an archive of ancient documents dating back to the 8th century.
Prepare to be stunned by the Villa Cimbrone Gardens, which overlook a breathtaking landscape of jagged, forest-covered mountains and endless sparkling sea.
The Duomo di Salerno, a cathedral built in 1048, is one of the most famous landmarks in Amalfi. The building is dedicated to Matthew the Apostle, whose tomb is found inside.
Villa Rufolo features impressive local architecture, but it's the gardens that make this place a must-visit. If you're lucky you can catch a Classical music concert on the terrace.
Amalfi is a beautiful town full of lush foliage and romantic views best seen on foot. You'll be amazed at all you can discover when you walk this small city. If you need to get across town quickly, however, there are also local bus lines that are inexpensive. Taxis are readily available, as are rental cars.
For breakfast try a cornetto with a coffee. At lunch, find yourself a pizza covered in 'alici' (fresh anchovies) for a truly local taste experience. In the evening, enjoy a caprese salad drizzled with the most decadent olive oil on earth.

What People Are Saying About Amalfi
the guide was very informative and entertaining. he was very knowledgeable about the area and made the tour great.
We had a short visit to Sorrento and decided to take the Amalfi coast tour. It was well worth every penny. We saw the most beautiful scenery which was all the more enhanced by Roberto our guide and excellent driving by Jean Luca. We we're picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Excellent service and made our short holiday wonderful. Thank you.
GiovanniLucca the driver did a great job driving. Our guide, Roberto was excellent! He was pleasant, knowledgeable, and caring to his guests. We were very pleased and will recommend this tour to anyone traveling in the Amalfi Coast area. Again thank you for the great excursion. Almost forgot! All the boat tour guys and guide were absolutely wonderful too. Keep up the good work, Ciao!
Even before the tour my wife and I were very impressed with the booking arrangements. After phoning 'Get Your Guide', Jessica from Activities Travel Etc emailed us the exact time of pick up at Sorrento station (we were staying in Pompeii) and phoned the day before to confirm. The bus was exactly on time and the tour totally exceeded our expectations. Roberto the guide was so informative and amusing, taking care of everyone's needs in the party, and the driver Giovanni was incredibly skillful and safe. The tour takes the beautiful coast road with its incredible views and was extremely well paced, giving just about the right length of time in Positano, Amalfi and Ravello, which are all stunning. We took the optional extra boat trip from Amalfi (12 E) and would recommend. Throughout the trip Roberto was constantly providing local knowledge very energetically. We really enjoyed our day out and were grateful to be dropped off near the Sorrento restaurant we had booked. Highly recommended!
It was a very full day but well worth it. Our driver Angelo was awesome, his English was excellent, and his driving was careful and amazing - he negotiated us through the crazy Naples peak hour traffic, and some very hairy situations involving coaches on hairpin bends on Mt Vesuvius! He personally walked us to where we had to go each time, and was able to get us in front of the line for most things which saved a lot of time. Pompeii was incredible, but we found the audio guide a bit confusing and feel like we missed out on a bit, even with the 2 1/2 hours we had. We hired a guide to take us around Herculaneum later in the day and that was completely worth it, we wished we'd taken up the offer of a guide for Pompeii too. The hike up Vesuvius was tough but not too long, and the views of the crater and the towns below were amazing. Angelo also booked our lunch at a restaurant on the mountain where the service was slow but the food was fantastic. A very worthwhile and interesting day.
