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!

Incredible time with Giorgia. Journey was smooth throughout. Had a great time in Positano town then boat hop to Almafi. Then whisked off to a lemon farm perch on a hill to enjoy limoncello while enjoying the view. Splendid trip , would 100% recommend!
A very special day with a very special guide. Luca was engaging, interesting, and made our trip memorable!
Andy did any amazing job on this tour! Kevin and Martha Coyne

I really enjoyed the tour and going from town to town via the water was really lovely. Rafaella was lovely, and I enjoyed talking with her. The only improvement feedback I would give is that she should be more aware of her group and make sure they're with her. She is very small and be hard to see in a crowd and at times she would take off and some of the group had a difficult time keeping up with her or even seeing her ahead of us in the crowd. Once in a while she held up a sign and then people could see her, but not very often, and I noticed she doesn't look back to see if everyone's following. At one point, we stopped for lunch and when it was time to go three of us were getting our personal items together and when we came out of the restaurant the tour group was gone! We had gotten up as soon a Rafaella said we were leaving, so we weren't lagging behind. when we came out of the restaurant we had no idea which way she had gone and fortunately one of us had a phone. We called her and she and the rest of the group were more than two blocks away! They said they told her everyone wasn't there, but she kept going! I know there are timetables to keep and she didn't want us to miss the train, but she needs to make sure the whole group is with her! Other than that, it was a great day!

Giorgia was very helpful and friendly! The drive was beautiful and the limoncello tasting was amazing. I recommend providing a disclaimer on the website about boat-hopping being weather-dependent. It looked like we weren't going to be able to go on the boats which was disappointing but Giorgia made sure we got on one from Amalfi to Salerno.
The Boat Hopping tour of the Amalfi Coast from Rome was absolutely fantastic! Lucca, the tour guide, was wonderful, attentive and full of information. There was an incident at Termini station where someone tried to divert some of us to another tour and was leading some of the people outside the terminal before Lucca arrived. Lucca arrived and immediately diffused the situation - which could have ended quite badly - and sent that person on his way. He handled this situation in a very professional, calm manner that was quite impressive. The tour itself was everything and more than I had hoped for. Lucca provided just the right amount of information and he responded well to questions. The limoncello tasting at the lemon farm was absolutely incredible. This was not part of the tour that I was planning to do. I'm 75 years old, and 250 ancient stairs seemed impossible in my mind. I decided to try, and much to my surprise I ended up at the top of those stairs and in the most wonderful area of the lemon farm where their home-made lemon cake, lemon water, lemons and limoncello were served as we sat in the lemon grove looking over Amalfi. It was magical. The lemon farm owner and his sister-in-law who led the actual tour joined our group, and it was simply wonderful. There were no other groups there at the time, and apparently they allow only one group at a time which makes the experience uncrowded and individual. There was also an adequate amount of free time in Positano, Amalfi and Salerno. We were not rushed, and loved wandering the towns. The ride in the van along the Amalfi coast from Naples to Positano was wonderful with views that I will never forget. The two boat rides were perfect, and the train back to Rome relaxing. Lucca served treats along the way which were much appreciated and a lovely gesture. I found the mix of transportation - trains, van, and boats very nice. It gave a variety to the day that isn't usually offered on a day tour. I did a lot of research into which trip we would take to arrive on the Amalfi coast, and I spoke to the Walks of Italy people many times before we left home. Each person I spoke to was responsive to my many questions, and unfailingly cordial. Many thanks to your staff for their help with our trip. I would be happy to respond to any questions regarding this particular trip to those who may want to speak to someone who has actually been on it. Sometimes, people want to get information from someone other than from a person who works for the company, and I'd be delighted to be that person if the need arises. Please feel free to give my email address if you feel that this would be helpful. I can be reached at: dankner@ns.sympatico.ca. Again, many thanks for organizing this wonderful adventure. I can't wait to arrange another trip with Walks of Italy. Renee Dankner
Best day of my trip. Positano and Amalfi were amazing little towns. The trip to the Lemon Grove was so very interesting. Shopping was awesome and scenery beyond compare. Totally worth it!
Excellent over all experience guide was great at keeping us on track and helpful hints.
Fantastic, amazing, you guys are the best. Again, Roberta was our guide and she is wonderful! We were seeing her for the second time so lots of big hugs all around! The private van, private ferry & high speed train tickets made this trip feel very exclusive & VIP. I could not be happier. Our trip ran into some problems when a woman was hurt on the docks at Positano. I cannot say enough good things about how well the guides took over to assist her while still making sure the rest of the group had a great experience. Everyone was so nice. The timing of town hopping was perfect too, I never felt rushed even though we were able to pack 3 towns in plus the travel. Seeing the coast by water was spectacular. A+ tour.
Andrea was amazing made the whole experience fantastic. Next time we are in Italy we will definitely be using Your company. Regards Lynne Sharpe
Very friendly and informative tour and tour guide. Would definitely do it again and recommend to a friend. Beautiful tour.
Our guide was the best ever. She was responsible for making the day so enjoyable. Please let her know how much we enjoyed her. When we come back we will ask for her again !
Giorgia was so fantastic! She was so knowledgable and personable. She went above and beyond, and the tour was so beautiful. It was the highlight of our trip.
Thank you
This was a great tour. My only criticism would be we didn't get our boat tickets early enough to get in line for good seats on the boat. It was very crowded and really couldn't enjoy or even see the scenery for the first boat trip. Overall though it was a great day and a highlight of our trip.

This tour was my daughters' favorite thing that we did while we were in Italy. The Amalfi Coast is gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Hugo was a fantastic guide- he knew lots of history, brought fun and entertainment to what could have been a very boring bus ride and made sure we all enjoyed our time on the tour. Our youngest loved getting try some Italian snacks that Hugo brought on the train journey. Thanks to Hugo, she is now a mozzarella lover! Thank you so much for putting together such a fun experience for our family.
We had a fantastic day on the Amalfi coast. Antonella was a fun, enthusiastic & knowledgeable guide, you can tell she really loves her job! It was a great day out for my whole family, my kids got to swim, I got to shop, the lemon farm was interesting & we got to see another part of Italy.

Raphaella was an amazing guide. She was so knowledgeable and very sweet. The trip was also great, we saw so much with the time we had. I would definitely recommend this tour to a friend.
Only thing I would suggest is one stop on the road to almalfi coast to take pictures at a look out point. Luca was a great guide!!

Andy and the driver were fantastic with some great opportunities to stop and take pictures. The Lemon Tour and tasting is an experience I will not forget. I would say perhaps give a warning about the steep climb since some folks in the group had some issues. My companions and I had a great time and really loved the entire thing through and through.
Andy did an awesome job of guiding is throughout multiple cities and modes of transportation. We were quite impressed with how much we got see in such a short time frame; and we also received ample time to shop and explore on our own.
Francesca was a great guide for our tour. She kept us well-informed. We enjoyed the variety of aspects to this tour; train, bus and boats. This was a wonderful change in our Rome-city holiday.
I loved this tour in the sense that it took very little effort to organize such a complex arrangement of trains, buses and boats. It would have been time consuming to do the same thing by our selves and I doubt we could have seen so much in one day. Roberta, our guide, was very kind and easy to follow but I felt that she was more of a babysitter than an informational based person. That's all well and fine but the tour price should reflect that. Thank you!
Roberta was an excellent guide and was just wonderful to spend the day with--made the tour a five star experience for us!!

The Boat Hopping tour was just perfect. It was a great experience to see the Almalfi Coast while in Italy. Andy was awesome. He gave us enough time to explore and gave us some helpful information. I would highly recommend the Almalfi Coast tour.
This is my 3rd tour with walks of Italy . Have had so much fun. Meet amazing people & places. The guides are fantastic.

Hugo was great- we loved his enthusiasm and attention to details with food and music and love of the Italian and Napoli culture! Definitely recommend.
We loved our guide Luca, he was great and remained calm and in charge under some trying conditions and sorted everything out for us so we never experienced any stress at all. The Amalfi Coast is a stunning location and being able to experience it in a day trip from Rome is incredible. Luca's knowledge of the area was very impressive.
Amalfi Boat Hopping was a beautiful trip that was very well organized. Hugo was a great guide- very informative, funny, and personable. Great trip!
Absolutely loved the tour . Everything is very well organized and stress free . Luca was very informative and a great tour guide .
Alessandra was awesome! She was so friendly and always made sure everyone was having a great time! Would do it again in a heartbeat!
The Boat-Hopping Amalfi Coast tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Europe. Antonella was very approachable and friendly and tried very hard to ensure we had a pleasant and enjoyable experience given the extreme temperatures. Our bus drive was very competent and we were happy we could make a couple of stops along the coast to take photographs. I would highly recommend this tour to future travellers along with sunscreen, hat, umbrella, good walking shoes and plenty of water. My only comment, given the extreme heat of the day with the temperature rising to close to 40 degrees, would be complementary bottles of water for guests given out on the tour bus or on board the boat as we had to sit on the boat in direct sun for 25 minutes as we waited for the boat to leave. Thank you Walks of Italy. Susan (New Zealand)
Andrea is a very passionate and engaging guide. The tour was very well organized and a great mix of cultural information and relax. The visit to the lemon farm (with tasting included) was definitely one of the highlights.
Alessandra was awesome ... a really great guide who made the trip even more memorable!
Luca was a very fun and knowledgeable guide, we had a fantastic time talking with him. He made us feel more like friends on a trip than a guided tour. We had an amazing time on this trip, despite the rain. We would definitely recommend Walks to our friends!
