EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

THE PERFECT DAY ON THE AMALFI COAST

Most Amalfi Coast tours from Rome stick to the roads, seeing the crystal-clear waters of the coastline from above but hardly glimpsing its cliffside towns at all. But this tour is different: we let you see the coast by air and water for the most complete experience possible. Touring the Amalfi Coast by boat, you’ll have perfect views of the coastline’s most famous asset: Its colorful towns. You’ll also get out and about, wandering the streets of Positano and shopping for sandals, eating lunch on the beach and splashing around the water. Then in Amalfi town, you'll climb to the top of the town for an authentic limoncello tasting on a hidden farm.

Carefully balancing the value of a guided tour with time alone to explore and shop, our Amalfi Coast tours from Rome offer you the perfect day in paradise without the hassle of organizing your own trains, cars and boats.

Your guide travels with you all day for added ease & helpful info

Your Amalfi Coast tour from Rome meets early in the morning at Termini train station, where your (fun & fluent) English-speaking guide will join you for the short journey by high-speed train. In just 70 minutes you’ll be in Naples, where you’ll hop on a private bus and enjoy one of the most scenic drives in the world.

After stopping at some scenic overlooks for pictures, you'll disembark right in Positano town and enjoy a brief introductory tour then have two hours to explore, eat, shop, or just sit on the famous beach.

Boat-Hopping and limoncello: An authentic Amalfi experience

After lunch, your Amalfi Coast tour from Rome reconvenes aboard a small boat for the 30-minute ride to Amalfi Town. Sit back and watch as colorful coastal towns bob past. And don’t forget your sunglasses – between Amalfi’s blue skies and crystal waters, it can be pretty blinding!

Climb ashore at picturesque Amalfi town and follow your guide uphill to a hidden lemon orchard. There’s a table reserved for us here, on the edge of the property overlooking Amalfi Town, the beach and the sea below. Here you’ll sample limoncello and some traditional Amalfi Coast snacks, like lemon cookies or cake.

Afterwards you’ll have free time to shop, wander or take a dip in the sea. Don’t forget your swimsuit!

As the evening draws in you’ll meet your guide and board the boat once again for the 40-minute boat ride to Salerno, where you’ll board a train back to Rome. Arriving back in the city around 8.40PM, you’re just in time for dinner!

The tour was absolutely amazing!! Andy did a great job showing us around.Would highly recommend to everyone
The only negative was the rainy weather, which forced our guide Giulio to cancel the boat hopping portion of the tour. Nothing to be done about that, however. We had a great time and Giulio did everything possible to make it a memorable trip!
Andy was a great tour guide and I really enjoyed our day!!

Chiara was amazing! I love how thorough she was in regard to the agricultural and regional information she spoke of. The day was perfect timing wise. Enough time to eat and shop. I just wish I had done some sunbathing ....I did have time to do this. Ciara also had her own personal recommends. The walk to the Lemon Grove and the sampling of lemon products along with the knowledge supplied by the farm was fantastic. The return train with the agricultural- Italy cheese, crackers, and wine was a nice touch. Also, it was great to return early enough for dinner. I would highly recommend this tour!

I really enjoyed the tour. It rained and we were unable to take the boat from Positano to Amalfi as planned, but we were still able to see the breathtaking coast from the road. I knew very little of the history of the area and was glad to get a lot of information from our guide. I felt it enhanced the experience. There was a perfect blend of free time and group time.
The only negative was the rainy weather, which forced our guide Giulio to cancel the boat hopping portion of the tour. Nothing to be done about that, however. We had a great time and Giulio did everything possible to make it a memorable trip!
Andy was a great tour guide and I really enjoyed our day!!
This was the best day! Our tour guide Andy was so knowledgeable, kind and a wonderful host. The tour was a great blend of educational elements and leisure time. This is a must do if you are in Rome and want to visit the coast!!!! Big thanks again to Andy, you were a wonderful guide!
Giorgina has a great sense of humor and an engaging personality.

Georgia was amazing and very knowledgeable..This was a great tour that had a great balance with educational and private time. This was definitely my favorite tour while visiting italy. I'll be recommending this tour to all my friends and family- Mahalo and Aloha from hawaii!
Giorgia was very nice and knowledgeable tour! She was very funny and made you feel comfortable at all times! I did not feel rushed at all on this trip. I felt like there was enough time to eat and to go shop and see the towns. This tour was so beautiful and I do not regret taking this tour!
We absolutely loved this trip and our guide Giorgia!!!
Our guide was outstanding.
My husband and I loved the tour and thought Anna was terrific! The tour was so well organized that what I thought would be a bit too long a day was just perfect cuz it was made easy for us. Anna was great and we so appreciated the “snack” she prepared for us on the train home. The boat ride made the trip!! The views were great. I wouldn’t change a thing. I think you have a winner w/ this tour.
One of the highlights of our trip. Our guide was fantastic. Everything was well organized and ran like clock work.

We really enjoyed our guide, Anna. She was laid-back, fun and was sweet to give us candy and snacks on the train rides to and from the Amalfi coast. We really enjoyed seeing Amalfi by boat! It's hands-down the best way to see the coast line. I would definitely recommend to those taking this tour to dress as you would for an Italian vacation so you can fit in with those staying on the coast. Chez Black was great for lunch in Positano. Ask the chef for any pizza in a "heart" shape and they will deliver!
The whole trip was wonderful! Luca was a fantastic tour guide giving really useful information about the area and country. We were very pleased with the experience! Grazie!!
Extremely well organized, making an adventurous day of sightseeing possible with ease. The lemon farm was well worth the stairs climbed and our guide was outstanding. She provided just the right balance of information and individual space. We are looking forward to our day in Tuscany from Florence later this week!

Sabrina was our Italian Mama and did a fantastic job organizing our tour, giving instructions and teaching us about Italia! Bravo- she even bought Italian snacks for our way back on the train! Great tour- loved every minute of it!
Loved our tour guide! She went above and beyond to make our day amazing!!!! She even surprised us with an Italian snack for the train ride home!
It was a very memorable and pleasant trip from Rome to Naples. Giorgia was very fun. All of us had super fun on the tour with her. She even bought us mozzarella cheese, olives, crackers and wine from Sorento to celebrate the wonderful journey back home. I will definitely take Walks of Italy tour just because the guides are the best to enjoy the tour. The whole tour had a right mix of train journey, bus ride to Positano, boat rides and train journey back. Time was well utilised. The Lemon cakes were delicious and the family who took us for the tour for the lemon orchards were kind too. Highly recommended trip.
Giorgia was an excellent guide! She was very knowledgeable, and answered all our questions. She even provided a “happy hour” for the train ride back to Roma. All in all—-a wonderful day!!!
Giorga is an excellent guide and knows what she is doing. She made our day during this trip to Amalfi coast even though rain 🌧 spoiled sport most of the time. Her service definitely deserves 5 Star ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ Rating from our family.
The tour was very good overall - enjoyed the treats on the train thank you
I am so glad we took a trip that included boat trips. Everything went smoothly and Clara gave us good information. I would definitely recommend this trip to others. Alida Fly
I first want to say that we LOVED our tour guide. He was fantastic and we wished we had more time in Rome so we could have booked a food tour with Valerio. I mostly enjoyed the tour but I could have done without the Amalfi Town part. While I very much enjoyed the lemon farm, squeezing Amalfi in made the day too hectic. And after touring the lemon farm, there was very little time to explore Amalfi. I would have enjoyed the extra time to really explore Positano which is the more interesting, vibrant town.
Manuela was an exceptional tour guide. We had to make a sudden change of plans due to a fire on the route. She managed the change smoothly. The trip was memorable!
This was great Day Trip. It was well scheduled and executed. Just a wonderful day overall. Luca was exceptional as our guide and I highly recommend your tour and Luca both!
Lucca was phenomenal. Excellent day trip. Highly recommended
Manuela was excellent!
This tour was fantastic! We had just enough time in every city and our guide Robi was fantastic! She was so knowledgeable and made sure our experience was everything we wanted. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone!

This was the best tour I took in Italy. Everything ran smoothly and we were able to have a lot of free time to explore Positano and Amalfi on our own. Roberta was the best. She made the tour fun and taught us a lot about Italian culture. She went the extra mile and got us buffalo mozzarella and champagne before we left the coast. I would highly recommend this tour.
This tour is worth every penny. Be prepared to walk - hills and stairs - apple watch says we climbed over 20 flights that day. The steps up to the lemon farm are not bad - you take breaks along the way and it is not directly up. / If its swimming weather - pack a bathing suit and enjoy a few hours in the Med. Positano is beautiful and its fun to see it by land and by sea. The boat you take is a water ferry, be sure to sit on the left to catch views of the coast. The time in Amalfi is well spent. We are so happy we booked this tour.
Georgia was an amazing guide! The trip was very well thought out to experience what each area offers. I did 3 yours with Walks of Italy last week and each one was superb! Thank you!
Luca did a great job keeping our group together and verifying meeting times/places while on our trip to Almafi. There were many transfers and modes of transportation used that day and he was ble to keep us on track. He spoiled us with treats on the train ride back to Rome...wine, water, crackers, olives and delicious cheese!! It was a nice touch and welcomed snack!
Took this trip on a Saturday in July 2018 from Rome to Amalfi. The weather was perfect and so was the entire day. The train from Rome to Naples in easy, the bus ride form Naples to Positano was very scenic. The amount of time spent in the towns was perfect, not too long and not too short. We had time to do as we want and never felt rushed. The hike up the lemon farm was worth it as it provided a beautiful view down to the town of Amalfi and out to the sea. The little snacks we had on the train ride back to Rome was a beautiful touch!
Anna was by far our best guide of all the tours we took while on vacation in Rome. Her English was perfect and she was extremely knowledgeable. Anna was also very caring and made sure we were all taken care of. Also, it was so nice of her to get us treats for our train ride back to Rome. Highly recommend this tour and ask for Anna!! Mary Jo and Bob 😘
Excellent tour!!
Georgia was great, friendly and personable to all of us. Thank you Expo Duarte Melinda Bradley
Georgia was outgoing, friendly,, knowledgeable and fun!! She made sure that everyone had a good time and made everyone feel included. The tour was a highlight for my trip to Roma!! Thank you .
This tour was fantastic and our guide was amazing! Based on my experience with this tour, I would definitely book another tour through Walks of Italy.
Our guide Sabrina was very interesting and very cheerful. Even though some other guests were loud and not very disciplined she kept the group in order in a very polite and gentle way. Everything was perfect.
