Stretching along the southern side of Italy's Sorrentine Peninsula, the Amalfi coast dazzles with its stunning grottos, craggy cliffs, and shimmering bays. Grab a seat on the seaside of a regional bus to soak up views on the fabled route from artsy Positano to Amalfi. Ravello offers some respite from the crowds, plus the stunning Villa Cimbrone, which overlooks the Bay of Salerno. The historic section of Sorrento has winding streets filled with craftspeople. Capri is only a hydrofoil or ferry ride away.

Day trips from the Amalfi Coast
Go back in time with a visit to Pompeii.
You’ll see all of the most popular sites, including a Roman bakery and the Roman Forum. You’ll learn what Ancient Romans ate and drank, what they did for fun and the sad, misguided beliefs they held about the cause for those ground tremors they felt before the eruption or the frequent clouds of ash from the nearby Mt. Vesuvius.
f course you’ll visit what, for many visitors, is the highlight of their Pompeii tour – the world-famous plaster casts of those killed in the eruption.
Travel to the Summit of the Vesuvius
Travel into the heart of one of the most significant natural disasters in history with an excursion to the peak of Mt. Vesuvius, the active volcano whose 79 AD eruption buried the city of Pompeii. A Walks coordinator will meet you in front of the city’s magnificent ruins in the morning and take you in an air-conditioned vehicle up to the summit. There you’ll meet your specially-certified Vesuvius guide who will tell you all about the geology of the mountain and how its eruption both wiped out Pompeii and preserved it as a time capsule from antiquity.
Naples is a real treasure trove of art and history, of indelible signs from past dominations, each of which has contributed to this city's construction. Its center, in particular, encompasses a heritage so rich that it has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Explore the city..you can also take a trip underground!
Not only Capri
Ischia is also known as "The Green Island" due to its numerous pine trees and rich Mediterranean vegetation that in springtime makes the island an explosion of colors and fragrances. The vineyards, cultivated in terraced fields, add a special touch to the general landscape of the island. Among the many beaches, especially worth mentioning are the beaches of Maronti, Citara, and Lacco Ameno, along with the picturesque Bays of Sorgeto and Cafiero, and Bagnitiello. Beyond the natural charm, the villages reveal the many faces of Ischia and its natural and artistic treasures.
Vietri and its ceramics
The history of Vietri’s ceramics industry is a millenary one – evidenced in the abundance of ancient remnants – and it characterizes this seaside village with its peculiar, colorful style. Learn about the typical ceramics tradition in a ceramics factory, displaying contemporary ceramics works, and at the Museo Provinciale della Ceramica in Villa Guariglia.
Sit back, relax and enjoy the Amalfi Coast
Imagine having your own private driver through the Amalfi Coast: an English-speaking driver born in the area will take you to discover the best towns of the coast like Sorrento, Ravelllo, Amalfi, and Positano.
Hike on the Sorrento Peninsula
The name of the footpath, The Gods' Pathway, is an indication of the spectacular scenery en route. During a pleasant hike, you will be amazed by looking at the moving views of the Sorrento Peninsula and you will be able to see and smell some of the best herbs. After all this hiking you then deserve a typical lunch!
Visit an old organic farm to taste some of the best products and cook

Be amazed by Capri
Capri is simply amazing! You can decide to take a ferry from Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi or Naples.. But one of the best things about Capri is exploring its coast and many grottos!
