“Loved the fact that we were on our own and yet everything seemed organised for us. The Amalfi Coast was nothing but great. I imagine it's busy during high season. Definitely perfect during the shoulder-season. Well done.”
“The trip was well organised and the accommodations exceeded expectations. The walks were stunning albeit challenging at times. We definitely got a real flavour for the Amalfi Coast, beyond the touristy areas.”
“Excellent guide.... Georgia was so knowledgeable and excited to be sharing this part of Italy, she was so personable and i5 was such a nice way to end our trip of Italy would so highly recommend the day trip and Georgia as a guide!!!”
An Amalfi Coast holiday features some of the most amazing coastline in all of Europe. Enjoy amazing seafood, stay in luxurious hotels and marvel at the awe-inspiring scenery in this unforgettable slice of paradise. There is no shortage of panoramic views of the sea as you tour the Amalfi Coast and cover other equally beautiful cities from Naples to Sorrento and end in Salerno.
Stop off at Capri — one of the most picturesque islands on the Amalfi Coast. It is home to unique shops and trendy bistros as well as secluded coves and the Blue Grotto, a hidden enchanted sea cave.
Don’t miss out on visting the ruins to Pompeii. The city was buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and the ruins offer a glimpse into the treasures unearthed from the ash and what daily life was like in an average Roman town 2000 years ago.
Enjoy panoramic vistas of the sea from the cliff-top town of Sorrento. While there do not miss out on the magnificent Museum Correale that has an impressive collection of Neapolitan art and crafts.
Walk through the charming city of Naples. Full of history, museums and incredible cafes, the city is also home to world-class opera and theaters.
When in the quaint seaside village of Positano, head to the beach at Spiaggia Grande for the best views of both the village and the spectacular views of the sea.
While renting a car is the most popular way to explore this side of Italy, you can also easily get around the coast via the high-speed train from any major city. The most scenic way to get around is by ferry.
Make Sorrento your base. From here you can easily hop on a ferry to Capri, catch the Circumvesuviana to Pompeii or take the SITA bus to any of the small seaside villages. Sorrento is connected to Naples by train or ferry, so getting luggage to and from stops is simple.
Book your trip for either May – June or September – October for good weather and better accommodation deals. Although the weather is at its best during high season July – August, it also brings a lot of crowd. If you must visit during high season, get an early morning start to avoid the crowded ferries and buses.
Rent tour boat while visiting the island of Capri as it is the best way to see this amazing island. You will be taken around the island to get the best views of the gorgeous grottos, famous Faraglioni rocks and of course, the Blue Grotto. If your driver is willing, visit the blue grotto when it is “closed”, this experience will be unforgettable.
Don’t leave without taking home the amazing local crafts and treats to remind you of your Amalfi Coast holiday. Indulge yourself in local handmade pottery, sandals and a bottle of the famous Limoncello (lemon flavored liqueur).
Venture off the beaten path. Café’s and boutiques on the main streets of coastal towns are way more expensive than those hidden from view. Wander down the charming winding lanes and discover amazing places to eat and shop that are not crowded.
