Itinerary

Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Coast is a beautiful mountainous 40 km (24 mi) long coastline. It has been considered Italy’s most romantic road and it starts just west of Positano. The Amalfi Coast is spectacular: 500 feet above the sea level, with sharp turns and narrow lanes, especially in the small towns. Along the road that leads to Positano, you’ll enjoy a stunning view of the tiny islands of Li Galli. The islets were once known as Syrenuse, as they were thought to be the home of the Sirens.

Positano

You’ll stop at the Belvedere of Madonnina where the sight of Positano from above will take your breath away. Once a small fishing village, Positano is now a chic seaside resort thanks to John Steinbeck who, during a visit here in 1953, wrote: “Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.”

In the centre you’ll be visiting the charming village walking through its characteristic alleys and spending your free time the way you like.

Furore

You’ll reach a spectacular scenery at Furore, a deep gorge eroded by the water that opens to the sea 1.25 miles (2 kilometres) beyond Marina di Praiano. At a short distance is the Emerald Cave that can be reached by lift or by a short boat ride from Amalfi.

Amalfi

Stop for a visit at the old Maritime Republic of Amalfi with its narrow medieval streets lined with shops and its prized Norman Cathedral of Saint Andrew dating back to the IX century.

Free time for lunch in one of the characteristic restaurants.

Ravello

Walking tour at Ravello that is perched high on the top of the hill above the seaside town of Amalfi. Both Ravello and Amalfi, once powerful towns in the middle Ages, are rich with art and history. Ravello, the smaller and quieter of the two, has fascinated writers, artists, musicians, and travelers for centuries: Wagner, D.H. Lawrence, and Virginia Woolf all spent time here. Its cobblestone ways are free of traffic and bordered by gardens and elegant villas, including the stunning 13th-century Villa Rufolo, famous for its spectacular gardens and the Arabic “Loggia”. Villa Rufolo is also the seat of the International Summer Concerts, a must that you can’t miss.

We were in Naples and Sorrento, Italy, in September and had the extreme good fortune to discover Ilaria Montuori (info@sorrentotourguide.com). She spent the morning with us at Pompeii, and the afternoon along the Amalfi Coast. Ilaria is extremely knowledgeable about the area, its history, and the various local relationships that guided some of its history. She made the time in Pompeii very educational and fun, and was an expert in all that had happened in Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. She also went seriously beyond the call of duty when she spotted a flaw in our planning for the following day, with which she was not even involved. We had misunderstood the details of a boat ride and tour of Capri; Ilaria saw the mistake before we even knew we’d made it, contacted the boat captain and straightened it out, and rearranged our tour to meet our original expectations. Ilaria has 17 years experience as a guide, is a native of Naples, and runs her own business. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for great personality, comprehensive local knowledge, and outstanding professionalism.
