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. Not this tour, though. On this tour, we do both; taking you into the open air and onto the water. Traveling the Amalfi Coast by boat, you’ll have perfect views of the coastline’s most famous asset: Its colorful towns. You’ll 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 tour 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 meet your private bus and driver. Believe it or not, this stretch of your journey will be one of the highlights of the day.

The drive along the Amalfi Coast is stunning, so we’ll be sure to stop for a photo opportunity or two. Traveling in small groups of just 15 people or fewer has its perks and this is one; with a small bus you’ll be able to navigate the narrow streets of the Amalfi Coast, disembarking right in Positano town.

In Positano your guide will give you an introductory tour, teaching you about this pretty little town and giving you tips on where to shop and eat lunch. Then you’ll have two hours to spend as you wish.

Boat-Hopping and limoncello: An authentic Amalfi experience

After lunch we’ll reconvene and board 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!

We were delayed on the train for over 2 hours due to computer issues but Francesca did everything she could to try to get us home sooner. I really appreciated the effort she put into that even though we ended up staying on the train.

Enjoyed this tour with Andrea. He was engaging, interesting and knowledgeable. My husband and I knew this was an all day trip but we're exhausted at the end! The stops at Positano and Amalfi were great..... the stair climb to the lemon farm was really too much for us.... we did it but we're wiped out after that.. I thought the boat ride to Salerno was unnecessary..... we only had a short time and then had to get on the train for a 3 hour ride back to Rome. Assigned seats for the train would have been better too.... we moved around the train to search for seats together as a tour group. For future trips, would it be better to drive from Sorrento and finish at Amalfi? or Paestum? I think that would be more enjoyable. In summary, we enjoyed both tours - this one and we also did the Sistine Chapel early entrance tour. Thank you🙂
Amazing trip and very satisfied with everything. Amazing to see the Lemon Farming tradition that's held since the year 1000. Also really enjoyed the Calzone and the Bufala Ravioli at Bucca Di Bacca in Positano was the best meal I've had in Italy so far. Definitely recommend this tour. Mark Melville was also very informative and kept us engaged the entire time. Ask him for recommendations on the rest of the trip, you won't be disappointed.
We knew we wanted to see some of the Amalfi Coast but were running out of time on our trip so we added this day trip from Rome to the Amalfi Coast and it did not disappoint! Our guide was excelled. She was well organized and kept our group on track. All parts of the trip were excellent and provided us with all the highlights the Amalfi Coast has to offer. The lemoncello tasting was great. Seeing the lemon farm was interesting. We highly recommend this tour to anyone planning a trip to Rome/Amalfi!
