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!

Francesca and the tour were great!
Francesca is a delightful guide. So helpful and friendly. I like that your tour hits the right balance between guided time and unstructured free time. Offering the boat as the transportation between points on the tour is a big hit! Will recommend your company to others.

Francesca was delightful!! Although the weather was not optimal, we all had a wonderful time on this tour--jam-packed with boat rides and hikes and time to spend in the little towns. I especially liked the limoncello tour! Our guide was so informative and friendly and made the day truly memorable. Great tour!!

Francesca was an absolute delight to work with, I love her bubbly personality, constantly smiling & spending the extra time to get to know each of us. She was informative and was an incredible host added that extra special touch when offering wine & snacks on the train ride back. I would highly recommend her to other friends for future tours
Only complaint was that the driver was VERY late picking us up in Naples so it slashed the time we should have had in Positano. Andy was a terrific guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly.
I followed the tour as a guide in training so my perspective is potentially a bit different. I thought the tour itself was beautiful and well thought out. The substantial free time in Positano created a relaxed and happy vibe that lasted all day. The boating was beautiful and the lemon farm was a perfect way to introduce the clients to the authentic Amalfi Coast, not just the part seen by tourists. Valerio was a fantastic guide! Informative and upbeat with wonderful happy energy that was infectious. Francesca - who we shared the boat with - was also great and so funny! I don't think there was anyone who didn't love the tour from start to finish. Even the train was easy and painless.
Our tour guide, Giorgia was wonderful! She surprised us by buying wine, cheese & panini’s to eat on our train ride back to Rome! The best tour I had while in Italy
Excellent tour, our guide was fantastic, and the time my wife and I had was perfect.
Our guide, Georgia, was the best! She was knowledgeable about the areas we visited. Our group consisted of 15; Georgia greeted each of us and knew our name and a little bit about each of us shortly after we boarded the train. She is a great ambassador for Italy.
The tour is perfectly organised, the places are fantastic, and Georgia is Very knowledgeable, and took good care of the Group, great sense of humor and Very personable approach.
The absolute best tour and trip we took of the entire vacation. Superb job. Our leaders was Fransesca and she was amazing. What ever you are paying her...pay her more. :) Great time; thank you. Amazing all the extra details you took care of that we didn't expect like snacks on the train coming home. Great unexpected touch. Thank you.
Luca was a great guide, really friendly and approachable. The day was well organised and ran very smoothly.

Great tour!
We had a great time with the trip - everything went smoothly and Franchesca was a fabulous tour guide. Not only did she make sure everyone was comfortable, she also gave a lot of history and recomendations throughout the trip! Defnitely worth it!
Our guide was Francesca and she was amazing. Her spirit, her energy and knowledge made this trip a fantastic success. Overall we were impressed with all details being taken care of and we simply had to follow Francesca and all details were covered. Loved the process and of course the great day. Hiking th steps to the lemon orchard, was the icing on the cake, with a million dollar view.
Luca was very informative and knowledgeable...and funny!! Excellent tour guide. Thank you for the tour

This was a highlight of our anniversary trip! We would not have been able to see or do the things on this itinerary if not for Walks- I highly recommend this tour! Luca was very knowledgeable and funny- we learned so much on the drive between Naples and the coast. The beauty of this area is unsurpassed and the Lemoncello farm was breathtaking! Worth the cost and the early alarm!
My husband and I loved this excursion! Our guide was very knowledgeable and told very interesting stories on the busy and recommended places to eat and things to do during our free time. The almafi coast is stunning and this excursion made it easy to enjoy all the amazing sights without worrying about scheduling transportation. Thank you so much for a great day!
This was an amazing day! A little taste of Southern Italy that definitely left me wanting more! Luca was a fabulous guide - friendly, knowledgeable, organized and attentive! I would highly recommend this little getaway - a "vacation within a vacation!" This was our 3rd out of 4 tours we did with Walks of Italy while in Italy. They all were fabulous! Great experience!
She was a fantastic tour guide. Francessa was very knowledgable about the area and the history behind the trip. She recommeded great places to eat for lunch and amazing shops to stop by on our break. If you are looking for amazing knowledge and a fun time Francessa is the tour guide to do this trip with for a day.
Amazing and patient tour guide.

Momma Mia! We saved the best tour for the last! Our guide Georgia was the best!!! Highly recommend this tour and guide!
Mamma Mia ! Our Boat-Hopping Walks Tour of the Amalfi Coast was wonderful! The highlight of our visit to Italy! Our fabulous guide, Giorgia, was the key ingredient making this Walks tour the best. Giorgia was aided by talented associate guide, Sabrina. They kept all of our travel connections (train, van, boat) running smoothly. Giorgia made sure to point out all the sights of interest while traveling, providing great local history and stories during our comfortable ride with Cosimo to the Positano stop. Beautiful scenery, great photo ops, exceptional weather! The pace of free time to explore was good. The visit to the Lemon Gardens in Amalfi was great fun! Carmella is a gracious and informative host who rewarded our group with a delicious lemon cake treat after our walk up the steps. A brief meeting with the Lemon Gardens patriarch was a special surprise. Giorgia thoughtfully provided wonderful local specialty snacks for our train ride back to Rome. The total length of this Walks event was just right. Thanks again to Giorgia and Sabrina! They insured that this Walks tour was a great success!
The coast of course is beautiful and the view from the boat was amazing. Guilio was knowledgeable and friendly.
Highly recommend this tour. It was our favorite of the whole trip. Guide was just lovely all around.
There were some terrific aspects to this tour, notably Chiara, who was incredibly well informed and upbeat. The time in Positano was nice, as there were several hours to spend on our own. Although the weather was less than perfect, the boat ride was a nice touch, too (we were lucky; the rain held off, for the most part). Our actual time in the town of Amalfi was negligible; the lemon farm was nice, but I think I would have enjoyed more time to explore the town itself. I'm a travel writer in New England (Yankee Magazine), plus a Home and Garden Editor at the same magazine, and really like to use my time well. I would be so interested if you did an overnight along the Amalfi, and included a town like Ravello. Just a thought...but I think a lot of people would respond well to that. And if you did an overnight to Cique Terre, again, I think you'd have a lot of interest.
My daughter and had a wonderful day on the Almalfi coast! Andy was a great guide and gave us lots of interesting information while we traveled -and helped us navigate the crowds. The lemon orchard was a really special opportunity and we enjoyed it very much. It was a perfect way to spend one day on the coast !
Our guide was excellent. However, i do wish the tour would have spent less time in Positano and more time in Amalfi. We only had less than half an hour there which wasn’t enough.
Alessandra was wonderful a great guide and very caring person! I would highly recommend her. I wish we had more time at Positano!!!

The boat hopping trip was amazing. Lucca, the guide was excellent. The whole day ran smoothly and we had plenty of time in each location. Well worth the money. Would very highly recommend.

Amazing tour of Amalfi coastline and the combination of train and boat gave us a wonderful experience of the Amalfi coast - tour guide was amazing she went over and above to our every needs - would highly recommend this tour.
Valerio was charming and informative, went out of his way to give us special moments for photographs, advice on restaurants and tons of back stories that you wouldn’t get from a book. He was a pleasure to travel with!
My day trip to the Amalfi Coast was fantastic. We were blessed with perfect spring weather and Roberta was a fabulous tour leader. It did not feel like a long day at all. Roberta was a wealth of knowledge on food and drink on our trip as well as for different areas of Rome and treated us to a picnic of local produce on the train home. A great day thank you.
Chiara was like going on a tour with your grandma! (and if you knew how much I love and admire my grandma you would know that’s a very high compliment!) Chiara was so sweet and again (like our other Walks of Italy guide) personable! I love the size of this tour. Very small and intimate. I see larger tours and buses around and it makes me so glad tht your tours are nothing like that! Keep up the amazing work guys! Your tours are 2/2 for us so far!!!
