2. Amalfi About this tour
Meet with a tour representative at Rome’s Termini Station where you will board a high-speed train to Naples. After meeting your local guide right at Naples train station, you will take a coach and take to the winding roads and lemon orchards that characterize this part of the Campania region. Along the way, your guide will tell you about the area and you’ll even have the chance to stop for amazing photo-ops at the most stunning panoramas. Enjoy the incredible views of the lush mountains, crystalline sea and colourful villages that characterize this paradise.
The first stop is the most picturesque town on the entire coast, Positano, whose houses seem to tumble down into the sea amid narrow alleyways, chic boutiques, typical restaurants, and ‘Dolce vita’ cafés. Despite its present glamor, Positano was once a poor fishing village that was almost abandoned until it was ‘rediscovered’ by international jet-setters, filmmakers, and writers, making it a haven for the cultural elite. Its charm will seep into your pores as you shop for local ‘limoncello’ or visit the church of Santa Maria Assunta.
Your next stop will be the former capital of the maritime republic that gave the whole area its name, the town of Amalfi. Once one of the most important trading powers in the Mediterranean, this port city in miniature is home to a dazzling piazza, pristine medieval cathedral and streets that will captivate you like something out of a fairytale. Here you will also be able to have free time for lunch, climb the immense staircase to the Cathedral (‘Duomo’) to visit its arabesque cloister, as well as shop for Amalfi’s famous handmade ‘bambagina’ paper. If you prefer to relax on the beach, the tiny bay is an inviting place for a dip!
After taking in the crown jewels of the Amalfi coast, you will travel up the verdant mountains that cradle it to take in more incredible views of the sky and sea below. Here you will have the rare privilege to see how one of Italy’s most famous foods is made from a real local cheesemaker. We are of course speaking of real Buffalo Mozzarella cheese! Also known as ‘the queen of Mediterranean cuisine’, this delicacy is made with pure buffalo’s milk, and it will be hard to go back to the stuff you get back home once you’ve tried it. Try other delicious locally produced cheeses like the ‘caciocavallo’, as you browse through this amazing family-run shop.
See the Amalfi Coast as never before and let your senses by captivated by the sights, sounds and flavours that have made it so cherished on this comprehensive guided day tour from Rome that is sure to be the highlight of your trip to Italy! Start/opening time
