What to Expect
If you thought it was impossible to get to the Amalfi Coast from Rome and back again in a day, think again. With this tour, you can take in all the marvels of the Amalfi Coast on the only guided day tour from Rome via high-speed train. This is your chance to experience this UNESCO recognized landscape, as well as see its top two jewels, the towns of Amalfi and Positano, all with captivating and entertaining insight from a local expert guide. In addition to the stunning vistas and awe-inspiring towns, you will also get off the beaten path for a taste of one of the region’s world famous specialties, Buffalo Mozzarella, from a working cheesemaker that produces this delicacy fresh every day. First, meet your 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 Mount 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 opportunities at the most evocative panoramas. Enjoy the incredible views of the lush mountains, crystalline sea, and colorful villages that characterize this paradise, all with a passionate guide to bring your experiences to life.

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 4000 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. Its beauty and harmony will leave you in awe. The first stop is the most picturesque town on the entire coast, Positano, whose houses seem to tumble down into the sea amid narrow alleys, chic boutiques, typical restaurants, and Dolce vita cafés. Despite its present glamour, Positano was once a poor fishing village that was nearly abandoned until it was rediscovered by international jet-setters, filmmakers, and writers, making it a haven for the cultural elite. 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 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, Buffalo Mozzarella cheese, is made from a real local cheesemaker. 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 at 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 be captivated by the sights, sounds, and flavors that have made it so cherished on this comprehensive guided day tour from Rome. Join this fascinating VIP tour of Capri by high-speed train and let the incredible guides help you discover the hidden gems of the island that you may have missed on your own. You will find that with the extra time you gain paired with your guide’s expertise, your experience of Capri will be exceptional to say the least.
