Amalfi coast day tour is your best choice if you want to discover the enchanting Amalfi coast.

Our driver will show and explains you all that you are seeing, stop for pictures and to admire the breathtaking scenaries.
He will drive you in Sorrento, a town overlooking the sea,bustling port,picturesque bays and panoramic views of Amalfi coast and surrondings hills.
The visit of the city can start from the heart of the historic center, the important Tasso square, dedicated to the great poet, author of the Liberated Jerusalem, which was born in Sorrento in 1544. The square opens towards Corso Italia: the long street characterized by the presence of numerous boutiques, as well as bars and ice-cream parlors. Next to the square there is the Museo Correale , its collection includes watches, Italian and foreign porcelains and archaeological finds referring to the ancient origin of the city.
Sorrento possesses a high-quality handicraft business: its lace and its wooden tarsies are famous, and can be found in the characteristic workshops and shops in the historic center. Very famous are the church of San Francesco d’Assisi, and the Basilica of Sant’Antonino.
You can have lunch in one of the typical restaurant of Sorrento and taste delicies like mozzarella, home made pasta, spaghetti with tomato, the Sorrento Baby (sweet caciocavallo) and traditional dishes, such as cannelloni with ricotta and gnocchi at sorrentina. Finally drink the best liqueur of the coast “ LIMONCELLO” and nocino produced with the famous nuts of the place.
Positano is represented by the myriad of small streets and narrow streets that intersect for the village, creating a labyrinthic and quite evocative path that develops vertically. The center of the village is around Piazza Flavio Gioia with the church dedicated to St. Mary of Assumption, on which stands the majolica dome. In the latter, among other things, you can also admire mosaic sculptures and fairly colorful, contemporary with a great visual impact, by the artist Mimmo Paladino.
Positano is very famous for fashion. For this reason, along the maze of narrow streets it is very easy to come across many boutiques and tapestries that sell the original creations of the Moda Mare Positano line. We are talking about dresses, kaftans, coveralls, ornaments decorated with stones, with typical corals, turquoise and pearls. Their colors and their fabrics enliven the whole village.
At this point, we can also suggest you to take a stroll along Via Fornillo, the narrow, scenic little road that runs along the coast, and leads to a small bay where swimmers can indulge in a lonely dive. After spending a day in the sun, you can also dine with a typical and tasty fruit granite in one of the many bars in the place with a terrace. In the evening it is almost obligatory to conclude your unforgettable day with a sea-view dinner, based on fresh fish, preferably enjoying the famous crazy waterbuddies, which represent one of the many typical local dishes.

Amalfi is one of the four Maritime Republics ,It is is the main town of this coast road , it is a lovely town overlooking the Gulf of Naples. Along with Positano, they are known all over the world as real pearls of beauty. An ancient legend tells it was founded by Hercules, Jupiter’s son, for the love of the woman who had kidnapped his heart and had blue eyes like the sea she watched. The maiden was called Amalfi, but her life was short and Hercules buried her in a place where the sea would roll her into her hug forever.
It is a very small town, so the tour can be made easy also on foot , here you will have some time to stroll by the town. Arriving in Amalfi the first thing to see is the historic center with its vibrant and colorful Piazza Duomo. Always in the square there is the wonderful Cathedral, which overlooks the sea. You will visit the majestic Duomo that, with its infinite staircase and its Arab-Sicilian style, can only charm you. On the left side there is the wonderful Cloister of Paradise. At this point you can enjoy, besides an unreal sense of peace, even of refreshing refreshment. After the visit to the Duomo, you will go through the little streets of the town where the perfume of lemons pervades the nostrils. With a lot of calm and tranquility, you walk through the small white houses set in the rocky cliffs. We continue our excursion to Piazza Municipio, where is located the commune,Inside there are the ancient Amalfi coins and the traditional costumes worn during the Historical Regatta.
Your visit continues, and the destination is now the Rione Vagliendola, where you can admire the Church of San Biagio with its small Byzantine bell tower. Then we reach Piazza del Santo Spirito, where the Valley of the Mulini begins, since the Middle Ages, of old paper mills.
Ravello is a tourist destination for intellectuals, artists and musicians. In fact, in Ravello, every year, the International Music Festival is held, in honor of the great Wagner.
Ravello has intense cultural activity. Exhibitions, concerts, international events are hosted in extraordinary scenarios such as the Auditorium Niemeyer and Villa Rufolo. The latter, also known as “soul garden”, stands on two levels. From the decisively Victorian air, three stages are distinguished: Historical, Medieval and Romantic. The gardens, in 1880, enchanted the great Wagner and inspired him in the composition of Parsifal. The Cimbrone villa gardens are incredibly beautiful and contain the “most beautiful flowers you can imagine”.
The terrace on the Infinity of Ravello ,another of the jewels of Ravello. A 400-meter suspended terrace allows you to enjoy an incredible view of both the mountain and the sea. One of the best viewpoints of the entire Coast and a great excuse to visit the neighboring Villa Cimbrone. The view covers from the Cilento coast to the beginning of the Amalfi Coast.The infinity pool, the most important pool is in Ravello at The Caruso Hotel .
On the Amalfi coast there is a selection of shops to keep ceramic lovers content.
All the colors of the Amalfi Coast, the deep blue of the sea, the bright green of the woods, the golden orange of the citrus, are painted on the ceramics produced since 1600 . If you are looking for something special for yourself or gifts for others is a lovely way to remember the vivid hues of the Amalfi Coast.

Royal Palace in Caserta

Caserta is known as the “Versailles of Naples” because of the fabulous royal palace built here by Charles of Bourbon in the XVIII century. The palace is one of the most sumptuous in Italy with 1,200 rooms full of rich furnishings, frescoes, fabrics and works of art. However, the real highlight of a visit here is the park, with its magnificent gardens flanking a 75-metre-long series of fountains and cascades.


Pompeii

Pompeii is one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. Every year millions of visitors come to see the spectacular ruins of this ancient Roman town destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79. Excavation work only began in the XVIII century but since then has gradually brought to light the splendours of an ancient civilization, including magnificent frescoed villas and an imposing amphitheatre.


Vesuvius

Mt Vesuvius is one of Naples’ most well-known landmarks, and one of the largest active volcanoes in the world. The mighty mountain standing forebodingly over the city and the bay is accessible by bus up to a height of 1,000 m. From there on the visit continues on foot with licensed guides to the edge of the crater.


Naples

A unique and very special city, famous the world over for its warm and friendly people. Naples is one of the oldest cities in Europe, founded in the VII century B.C. by the Greeks and later conquered by the Romans. From the XI century onwards it was ruled by the Normans, Swabians, Angevins, Aragonese, Spanish and the Bourbons. Each of these foreign dominations left their mark on the city’s art, architecture and culinary traditions. You can feel the history most of all in the old town, a Unesco World Heritage Site and a treasure trove of unparalleled wonders.


Herculaneum

Herculaneum, said to have been founded by Hercules, is a remarkably well-preserved Roman town. Built some time between 80 and 70 B.C., it was destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79. Unlike Pompeii, however, Herculaneum was not buried by lava and lapilli (burning fragments of pumice stone), but was submerged by thick mud which then solidified into soft tufa rock, thus preserving the many frescoes and artefacts you can still admire today. The town was discovered in 1709 and excavation work since has brought to light sumptuous villas, baths, theatres and even a villa thought to have belonged to the father-in-law of Julius Caesar.


Paestum

Paestum is one of the most important archaeological sites in Italy. The Greek city of Poseidonia was founded here in the VII century B.C. and developed into a rich and flourishing centre of trade. You can visit the Temple of Poseidon, the Temple of Ceres, the so-called Basilica dating from the VI century B.C. (in actual fact a temple dedicated to the goddess Hera, the main divinity of Poseidonia), and the small museum housing the famous Tomb of the Diver.


Rome

The “Eternal City” is one of Europe’s greatest capitals and the centre of the Catholic Church. Rome is a cosmopolitan, dynamic city full of fabulous shops. Despite the hectic nature of modern life, it is still able to enchant visitors with its monuments and historic buildings such as Villa Borghese, Palazzo di Giustizia, Castel Sant’Angelo, the Colosseum, Piazza di Spagna, the Trevi Fountain, Saint Peter’s Basilica, Saint Peter’s Square and the Papal apartments, where every Sunday morning the Pope greets crowds of worshipers.
