Positano Amalfi Coast Highlights
Live a unique experience
Follow in the footsteps of the aristocracy and movie stars of cinema’s golden age as you travel along the coast from Positano to Amalfi. Between the 9th and 13th centuries the town of Amalfi was capital of its own maritime Duchy and equally as powerful as Venice, Genoa and Pisa. Now a Unesco World Heritage Site, Amalfi is famous for its beautiful cathedral, it’s exquisite handmade ceramics and of course it’s lemons!
Here you have free time on your own in the pedestrian areas to take in this lively town, sampling its famous Limoncello, lemon squash and pastries since 1820. Get a take-away slice of pizza or a quick stop in one of the best family style fish restaurants in town.
Once a thriving port, by the twentieth century, Positano had dwindled to become a small but picturesque fishing village when it was discovered in the 1950s by writers such as John Steinbeck. It went on to feature in several movies and it’s photogenic qualities- Moorish influenced architecture, buildings spilling down steep hills towards the sea and its views out towards the Sirenuse islands, have made it a ‘must see’ for all lovers of Italy.
This tour includes a stop in Vietri sul Mare, one of the most famous Italian centers for artistic ceramics. The streets are lined with ceramics of all kinds, characterized by bright colors and geometric patterns. You’ll get to see artisans at work and have a chance to purchase some for yourself or as gifts for friends and relatives.
Optional Lunch Add-on: After you have worked up an appetite, if you wish to avoid the touristy spots and have a quality, authentic Italian meal, you can add on lunch at one of the very best restaurants in the area. We’ll have a fixed menu of our favorite dishes already prepared for you for or you can order off of the regular menu a la carte. Pay separately for what you order.
Not to miss Pansa Pastry Shop in Amalfi for dessert.
