Tour Itinerary

After departing Sorrento by bus, during the first part of the day you will pass the famous and romantic village of Positano. Legend tells us that Positano was founded by Poseidon (the god of the sea) for the love of the nymph Pasitea.

Continuing along the beautiful coastline, you will reach Praiano, which is a thriving tourist destination with beautiful landscape featuring a mountain back drop to the coastal scenes. Looking out to the sea from Praiano, you can admire the Li Galli islands and, in the distance, the isle of Capri.

Weather permitting, there will be a stop halfway for refreshments and to admire the local pottery in Conca dei Marini. After this, the tour continues to what will surely be highlight: Amalfi, where you will have the opportunity to admire the coastline from the sea and take photographs of the famously glorious scenery. There will also be an opportunity to enjoy free time, perhaps for shopping. Alternatively, as an optional extra you can visit the medieval Cathedral known for its beautiful façade, which combines Islamic and Norman art, and you can also see inside the Cathedral Museum, which includes the cloister and masterpieces of high artistic value.

The tour then continues by coach to Ravello, which is about 300 meters above sea level. Here, you can enjoy lunch and discover this medieval village. We recommend visiting the Cathedral of St Pantaleone - it is a beautiful Romanesque church with two precious medieval pulpits (Ambon). As an optional extra, you can also visit the medieval Villa Rufolo, which features simply breathtaking views that have been a source of inspiration for many artists, including Richard Wagner.

After Rafello, you will return to Sorrento following the Chiunzi valley road, giving you time to reflect on an unforgettable day.

About the Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast takes its name from the town of Amalfi, the heart of the coast not only geographically but also historically. However, there are many other famous towns here and the Amalfi Coast is particularly known for its diversity. Each town on the coast has its own charm and traditions, and we highly recommend this tour if you want to learn more about the traditions of South Italy.
