Amalfi Coast private tour
This is the best tour for to explore the best of the suth Italian landscape. We will meet you at your hotel in Sorrento (or any other city) and drive to the Amalfi Coasts where we can have a couple stops to get beautiful pictures, we’ll find ourselves driving down-hill directly through Positano we will descend down the winding one-way road, bypassing many picturesque houses and shops, and arrive in the heart of the town, at Piazza “dei Mulini” is the last point where we can get by car ,we park our car and we walk downtown where all the streets leading to the
waterfront are .
Here we can have about one hour or more to discover this beautiful village denominated “the jewel of The Amalfi coast”
Positano has beautiful things to see :the cathedral, shops selling ceramics, lemons, shoes and “Positano fashion”. Positano is alive at night as well as during the day with exotic nightclubs and various bars and cafés that remain open until the sun begins to rise over the horizon. If you can, take advantage of the short boat ride out into the sea to take in the breathtaking sight of Positano at night, a truly magical experience.
Back on the main Amalfi coast road and leaving Positano the coastal road begins and runs through , the fishing villages of Praiano, Furore and Conca dei Marini, and continues until it finally reaches the busy square of Amalfi (piazza del duomo) which is situated on the seafront.
In front of the port of Amalfi, there is the one and only bus station along the coast and the shopping area lies just behind this. If you would like to steep yourself in Amalfi’s history there are some interesting sights to explore: one of the most spectacular being the cathedral situated along the coast, the paper mill museum.
Behind this square lies the main shopping street of Amalfi, that terminates at the furthest and highest point of the town. Along the pedestrian street are various bars and cafés, not to mention the many shops selling limoncello, casual clothing, swimwear, gifts, basic groceries, and of course, ceramics.
We will then take a meandering, relaxing drive uphill along a very narrow road passing several wineries and olive factories which will lead us to Ravello, a rural village completely unspoilt by tourism, perched on top of the mountain cliff situated above Amalfi and Minori. Ravello, is famous for its breath-taking views, natural beauty and ancient monuments and these are seen at their very best in the stunning gardens of Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. In high season, these gardens are rich in the heady perfume of blooming flowers, flora and the sharp, sweet scent of lemons. Ravello is also denominated THE CITY OF THE MUSIC, here Richard Wagner composed his opera .Parsifal. There are many classical concerts held in the gardens of Villa Rufolo and, if you would like to attend one of them, from June until September you are able to find them everynight.
After this great day we’ll drive back to Sorrento.
