What to Expect
Experience a thrilling ride along the gorgeous Amalfi Coast on this 7-hour tour, and visit 2 of its most idyllic cliff-side villages. Take in views of the towering bluffs, quaint ports, pebbly coves, and turquoise waters of this UNESCO World Heritage Site along Italy's most scenic stretch of coastline.
After a pick-up at your hotel you’ll head out on the Road of 1,000 Bends, stretching for 37 miles along the Amalfi Coast. Feel your heart pound as the driver navigates hairpin bends and dramatic drops. Take in stunning panoramic views and stop several times for photos.
Positano stands as a postcard-perfect representation of the region with its palette of white, peach, and terracotta houses seeming to hang precariously from the sloping cliffs. Hike down to a beach café or browse the shops along the narrow streets for handcrafted sandals and clothing. Stop to relax on a sunny terrace with delizia al limone, a creamy lemon sponge cake, while admiring the views of the coast's longest beach.
Next you’ll travel to the charming town of Amalfi, once the seat of a powerful maritime republic and one of the oldest paper-making centers in Europe. See the lovely villas situated on the steep incline down to the port below, and then take a walk through the central square and stop for a refreshing limoncello di Amalfi, a local lemon liqueur.
Climb up to the Cathedral of St. Andrew in the heart of the town and admire its Arab-Norman design. If you like you can take an optional boat ride to view the scenery from the water before the ride back to Sorrento.
