A TOUR, A TRANSFER OR A SHORE EXCURSION IN ITALY
OR SIMPLY INFOS?
Approximately 8 hours.
You won’t regret hiring a private driver for your day trip on the Amalfi Coast once you see the beautiful but tricky winding road that skirts the coastline. Leave the stress of the drive to us, and enjoy the scenery of the most beautiful coast in the world.
The Amalfi Coast is of course one of Italy’s most memorable destinations. Mediterranean landscape, vertical villages, breathtaking terrain with terraced vineyards, orchards and enchanting views of the vibrant waters below. Unesco World Heritage site since 1997, it is an area of great physical beauty and natural diversity.
The first approach of this tour is to the hill side “S.Pietro” near Sorrento where the inlaid into the mountain winding road of the Amalfi coast begins and the scenary blends green countryside, steep cliffs, and crystal-clear sea. After several photo stop, the first village where you can stroll and walk aorund is the “vertical” Positano and its hundreds staircases with shops of local products and crafts.
After leaving Positano, we’ll drive through the town of Praiano and Conca dei Marini where you can’t miss the chance to see the Emerald Grotto, and the underwater ceramic nativity scene.
At mid day, Amalfi is on the list, a town with a long background history wich dates back to the first century A.C., it was also one of the four Maritime Republics of Italy besides being the first to introduce paper to Europe. In the town centre stands the cathedral dedicated to Saint Andrew (Peter’s apostle brother) that you can visit.
Last but not least Ravello and Villa Rufolo, in the magnificent gardens the composer Richard Wagner found the inspiration for one of his greatest opera, the Parsifal. For this reason Ravello host during the spring-summer season tens of concerts under the name Ravello Festival. One more interesting place is Villa Cimbrone located at the highest point of the town and where you can look out from the “infinity terrace” across Salerno. If required, we can suggest you a restaurant trying to meet your expectation.
