Dramatically beautiful, wild, daring and romantic, the Amalfi Coast defines an Italian luxury escape. Its amphitheaters of rocks, water and flowers harmoniously blend colors and proportions and its pastel color houses hugging the improbable heights delight even the most sophisticated travelers. Often called the Coast of the Sirens - this is where Odysseus fell prey to beautiful sirens - the peninsula has some of the world's most bewitching coastal beauty, and is a lemon and pine scented oasis of tranquility set among unique seascapes. Punctuated with Byzantine and medieval architecture, with the backdrop of steep cliffs, lush green terraces and fragrant gardens suspended over the sparkling sea, the Amalfi Coast is beautiful beyond imagination. In addition to its natural diversity, the wealth of art and architecture, balmy weather, the limoncello liqueur and delicious food, it also has fascinating history going back to the times of Magna Grecia and Pompeii.
During the Amalfi Coast tour, we will experience the Sorrento Peninsula, Naples, Capri and Pompeii. We'll discover the coastal towns of Amalfi, Ravello and Positano, visit the Greek temples in Paestum, spend a full day on the island of Capri, and claim secluded beaches, coves and grottoes during a private boat trip along the Amalfi Coast.
- While in Naples, we will tour the city's center, with Sansevero Chapel, the majolica cloisters of Santa Chiara Monastery and Piazza del Plebiscito, visit the National Archeological Museum, then enjoy dinner featuring Neapolitan culinary specialties. We will spend the next day exploring the doomed city of Pompeii with a private guide
- While in Amalfi, you will visit Positano and Ravello, you will participate in a cooking class and limoncello tasting, and take a private boat excursion along the rugged shore of the Amalfi Coast
- We will spend a full day on the island of Capri, visiting the towns of Capri and Anacapri, the Gardens of Augustus, Villa San Michele and circumnavigating the island by boat
- We will spend a full day in the Magna Grecia town of Paestum, exploring beautifully preserved Greek temples and the Roman city that grew around them. We'll also visit a buffalo mozzarella farm and taste the only organic mozzarella in Italy
Throughout the tour, we will dine a la carte, in carefully selected gourmet restaurants, getting to know the Neapolitan and Amalfitan cuisine, especially its seafood, pizza, pasta, desserts and its fresh regional produce.
