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!

The train ride back was very long, but I understand it is difficult trying to arrange based on the train schedules. Otherwise the tour and guide Hugo were excellent.
Great service from Sara. First class
Sarah was helpful and informative of the area! Very personable. She was very attentive to her group. A nice size group made all the difference.
Loved every minute of this even if we came home with a fair bit of sunburn; it was so worth it! The lemon grove was so beautiful and the lemoncello so delicious.

Great tour - very accomadating, friendly and informative guides in Riane and Andreas. So loved being able to see the Amalfi Coast from the ocean. Would definitely recommend this if you are time poor and really want to see this amazing coastline.
Excellent tour, and Giorgia is a fantastic /enthusiatic guide
The tour to Amalfi was by far the favorite of our trip thus far! Hugo has a great personality, one that served well for spending hours with the tour group. He was extremely helpful and showed genuine care for each person on the tour. The tour was just the right amount of time in each town with introduction highlights as we entered each leg of the day. The time spent at each stop gave us the opportunity to explore enough without feeling like we missed out on anything, but also as we were not there for an overly extended period of time, which helped break up the day. Hugo provided a wonderful experience which we will never forget! Dan & Natasha

Andy was a great guide. He was very informative to all people on the tour, he made sure we were all on track with the timing of the meeting places, and was just a pleasure to be around I was pleased with the instructions we received via email on the initial meeting place. The picture helped and instructions were very clear. My only suggestion (and this is a tough call) is that it would've been nice to get in line to the boat a little earlier. The boat we were on was packed and by the time we got there, it was hard to find a place to sit. This is somewhat of catch-22 because I am sure people would also not be pleased to be sitting on a boat waiting when they could be on the shore exploring. Last, the lemon farm was AWESOME!!! Great item to have on the tour!! My family is very active so the stairs/climb was not difficult for us, but I can see where it might be for some. It was nice to sit up at the top of the climb and enjoy the things that were done there.
Beautiful and relaxing. Sara was fantastic!

The itinerary wasn't quite the same as the description, but it was still am amazing tour
Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and passionate. She made the day educational and fun! We learned about the food grown around the Amalfi Coast as well as the culture. The also served as training for how to use the train stations. This was a great way to explore the beautiful Amalfi Coast without scheduling the transportation on our own or booking a hotel.
Hi, I know this is a new tour for you so here is my feedback. First, Giorgia our guide was terrific. Loved her. I am not a shopper so having time to "shop and roam around" was a waste of time for me. I would suggest a longer time in the van driving along the Amalfi, so that you did not end up having to eat lunch at 11:30. Also, at the lemon farm your advertisement makes it should like there would be comfortable seating and you would taste a variety of lemon sweets which was not the case, what we had was delicious and the time spent there was interesting but now as "fancy" as it is made to sound and the climb is arduous. But the views were great and the lemon rind tasting was delicious. You might want to rethink this a bit and instead of going to the very touristy and hectic towns like Positano and Amalfi you stop at some one of the smaller village and have an arranged lunch with the group having an authentic meal from the area. I think that would be more value add as this is a pricey tour. Thanks for being open to suggestions.
This was my only day trip outside of the city on my 7 day trip to Rome, and wow! The Amalfi Coast is stunningly picturesque. Adrian was a fun and knowledgeable guide and managed to keep all of us on track and on time the whole day! The drive along the coast from Sorrento had my eyes practically glued to the windows of the comfy van. There were orchards on the cliff sides practically the whole way to the charming tourist town of Positano where I bought handmade leather sandals from one of the shops and sunned on the black sand beach. The ferry ride to Amalfi Town was lovely. I spent the whole ride without wearing sunglasses just so I could the see the unbelievably pure azure color of the water. So beautiful. In Amalfi, we climbed several short flights of stairs to a terraced lemon orchard overlooking the town and sampled limoncello and several other lemon snacks while enjoying the company of other travelers. The orchard was so beautiful and it was really interesting to learn about how the orchards on the Amalfi coast have sustained the region for centuries. The train ride back was super easy and after such a busy day, I slept most of the way back to Rome. It was a long day, but totally worth it!
Manuela was fabulous! She made the trip so fantastic with her fun personality & knowledge of the area. She was very relaxed with a big group traveling through rail & boats & took great care of us all the entire day. The trip was AMAZING! I have already passed your company onto my parents headed to Italy in September & a family headed there in July. Everything was awesome.
Manuela was fantastic! My daughter and I both enjoyed her enthusiasm and spirit. She gets our top rating for tour guide. The event itself was spectacular and the entire day went off without a hitch. Molto bene!!!!
Antonella was such a wonderfully energetic tour guide! This day trip was a great way to get a taste of the beautiful Amalfi coast. My husband and I particularly enjoyed visiting the family owned lemon farm! Such a wonderful experience! Kathryn and Robert
Great day, perfectly organized. Both Positano and Amalfi are fabulous places and the visit to the lemon farm adds so much to the enjoyment. The boat rides offer exceptional views of the coast but the train ride back to Rome is toooo long, at the end of a wonderful but tiring day. Antonella is exceptional in her enthusiastic, positive way of communicating with the people and providing interesting detailed information.
This day trip from Rome was the highlight of our week! Francesca was pleasant, accomdating and very knowledgeable! The transitions from the train to the van to the boats were seamless! We would love to spend more time on the Coast our next visit to italy! Well worth the money!!

This tour is perfect if you don't have a lot of time and want to see the Amalfi Coast. My guide was a sweet British young lady. Even though she wasn't Italian she was very knowledgeable and passionate about Italy. She brought little snacks to everyone on the VERY long train ride back to Rome. Don't miss it! Positano is amazing!
The tour was brilliant from start to finish. The directions of where to meet were clear and our guide was there to meet us. Mark was welcoming and very organised, clearly explaining how tickets/seats for the train were organised and timings of the journey. The fast train was brilliant and Mark came to check on us several times throughout the journey. We didn't wait long between train /bus and Mark's commentry was informative and entertaining. The views to Positano and Amalfi were amazing. The recommendations for drinks and restaurants were spot on. There was a good amount of free time despite the schedule being busy! The lemon grove tour was amazing....we were lucky we were able to keep up! We thought there should have been a little warning about how physically challenging the walk was as it might not be suitable for all. The private boat tour was very special and enjoyable. We hardly spent anytime waiting for transport which was particularly welcome towards the end of the day as we were obviously tired. The train home was slower and took a while but Mark provided an unexpected surprise with some local cheese and biscuits which were most appreciated. A thoroughly enjoyable trip, well worth the early start. Mark was very friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this trip to others.
Francesca was great guide and very sweet person.
My three friends and I would definitely recommend this tour. There is really nothing bad to say about it, and it is very good value for the reasonable price. Floyd Farmer, Muskegon, Michigan USA
Hugo was awesome! He had such a positive and fun attitude. We learned a lot with him and he kept us on track without rushing us. He went the extra mile and brought Italian music and even got us all snacks before our long train ride home. He went above and beyond for our group and we loved spending the day with him. I highly suggest anyone going on this tour to request Hugo! The tour itself was great and we had a lovely time at the lemon orchards. All and all a great day with walks of Italy.

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.
Loved every minute of this even if we came home with a fair bit of sunburn; it was so worth it! The lemon grove was so beautiful and the lemoncello so delicious.
Really enjoyed my day. Andy was helpful and friendly. All I had to do was show up, everything was taken care of.
Andrea S. was the best tour guide I had the entire time. He's very personable and did a great job.
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!
