The Amalfi Coast is home to some of the most beautiful scenery that Italy has to offer, and in the ‘Bel Paese’ that is saying a lot. It is a narrow stretch of land on the southern side of the Sorrento Peninsula between lush peaks reaching heights of over 4,000 feet that seem to dive into emerald waters, secluded bays and cozy beaches, with tiny pastel villages springing up here and there all the way down. Its beauty and harmony will leave you in awe.
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 nearly abandoned until it was ‘rediscovered’ by international jet-setters, filmmakers and writers, making it a haven for the cultural elite. Come here, and it’s easy to see why. Its charm will seep into your pores as you shop for local ‘limoncello’, visit the church of Santa Maria Assunta or people watch from a restaurant terrace.
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 with their fairytale-like flavor. 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 flavors 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!
