Amalfi Coast Shore-Excursions
AP1 - Positano, Amalfi and Ravello
Duration 8 Hrs (Full Day)
Available Everyday of the year
Down-hill directly through Positano, after the winding one-way road, is the busy central Piazza dei Mulini. There you must leave the car because streets leading to the waterfront are for pedestrians only. We will continue to the cathedral; shops selling ceramics, lemons, shoes, and clothing line the avenues on the way. Positano is alive at night as well as during the day with exotic nightclubs such as “Music on the Rocks” and various bars and cafés that remain open until the sun begins to rise. There is a short walk back uphill to return to the car and back to the main road. The coastal road begins after Sorrento, and runs through the fishing villages of Praiano, Furore and Conca dei Marini, and continues until it reaches the busy square of Amalfi, which is situated on the seafront along a beautiful, pebbled beach. Behind this square lies the main shopping street of Amalfi and along the pedestrian street are various bars and cafés, not to mention the shops selling limoncello, casual clothing, swimwear, gifts, basic groceries, and of course, ceramics.
Amalfi has some interesting sights to explore including the most spectacular cathedral along the coast and the paper factory and its museum. Your driver will suggest excellent local cuisine to satisfy anyone’s taste preferences. A slow uphill drive along a very narrow road past several wineries and olive factories leads to Ravello, a rural village un-tainted by tourism, perched on top of the mountain cliff above Amalfi and Minori.
Ravello, is famous for its breath-taking views, natural beauty, and ancient monuments, presented at their best in the breathtaking gardens of Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. There are also many classical concerts held in the gardens of Villa Rufolo, located just off the main square of Ravello. Apart from the main cathedral, and museum there are many other churches to visit. Along the narrow arches of Via Roma, you will find a few small boutiques, and scattered around the vicinity are some traditional local restaurants with a cuisine quite different from those close to the sea; Cumpà Cosimo, Da Salvatore, Villa Maria and Villa Amore, are all exceptional in their own ways.

No. of Pax Travelling
Comfortable walking shoes are suggested for this tour. Make sure your cameras are charged or load up on batteries! For groups larger than 8 pax, the best way to visit the Amalfi Coast, is by car or minivan. Minibuses are a lot harder to maneuver down to the town center of Positano, along with the parking issues. It is preferable to split the group into smaller vehicles, although the cost will be slightly higher, the group will still travel together throughout the tour and it will be a much better experience. Please note that this tour is for people staying in the towns of the Amalfi Coast only or starting from the port of Amalfi/Positano. If you are coming in on a cruise ship please see our Shore Excursion page.
