Step off the well-trodden tourist path on the Amalfi Coast and see it from a whole new perspective - the water. This day trip from Rome gives you the best views of both the dramatic coastline and the beautiful towns of the Amalfi Coast, with a mix of land and sea travel. (Don't worry though - there's still plenty of time left for walking!)

Your day starts early in Rome's Termini train station where you'll meet with your coordinator and small group. From there you'll catch a high-speed train to Salerno and begin your day of sun, sea and sightseeing!

A ferry ride takes you along the stunning Amalfi Coast, where you'll pass jewel-box towns clinging to high cliffs, and see plenty of sights few non-locals ever get to see - so don't forget to take plenty of pictures!

Stop off at Amalfi Town and leave the world behind as you ascend a beautiful cliffside lemon grove overlooking the sea. Here, you'll sit among the lemon trees and sample one of the local specialties: Limoncello. You'll also get to indulge in some homemade treats from the region such as freshly made lemon cookies and lemon cake. Purchase some of the delicious limoncello for later or take the time to peruse the delightful souvenirs on offer with free time to explore the charming Amalfi Town.

Take in the epic coastline once again as another ferry ride takes you to the neighbouring town of Positano. After a short introduction from your guide with tips on all of Positano's best spots, you'll have free time to explore the town on your own. Renowned as one of the prime vacation spots for Hollywood stars, this small fishing village has something for everyone. Shop in the fashionable boutiques, enjoy a lunch bursting with fresh, local ingredients, and be sure to pack swimwear so you can take a quick dip in the rejuvenating waters. Finally your day will end with a boat trip back to Salerno where you'll catch a high-speed train to Rome.

With breathtaking views and delicious specialties, this Amalfi Coast Day Trip is one of the best ways to discover three stunning coastal towns.

This was the most wonderful experience I’ve ever had with a tour. our guide, Pavel was extremely knowledgeable and kind. He went above and beyond, exceeding all expectations. The group of people in our tour were wonderful as well. A magnificent day!

Giorgia was a pleasure. She offered good and entertaining information and kept the international group well organized. She spoke English well and had an uncanny ability to remember names.


FAQ

How difficult is it to reach the lemon grove for the limoncello tasting?
There are aproximately 180-200 steps to climb in order to reach the lemon farm (you can opt for free time in Amalfi town instead). If weather conditions don't permit the visit, we will do a limoncello tasting in Amalfi Town instead.
Is lunch included?
No. Your guide will give you a few great recommendations for lunch spots and give you plenty of time, but where and what you eat is up to you.
Is it free to swim on this trip?
Yes! The beach is public but the changing facilities cost 50 cents to use.
What if the sea is very rough on the day of the tour?
If sea conditions don't permit comfortable boating, you will move between towns in a private, air-conditioned transport car/van.
Is this tour wheelchair accessible?
No. Unfortunately, due to site restrictions we cannot accommodate wheelchairs on this tour. If you use a wheelchair and book this tour by accident, we are happy to offer you credit for a future tour that is wheelchair accessible anywhere in the world, or a full refund.
What if the weather is bad (rain, snow, hail, etc.) on the day of my tour?
Our tours run rain or shine so please dress for the elements. We also ask you to please remember hats and sunscreen if you are taking this tour in the summer as it might be very hot.
If I bring a swimming suit can I go for a dip in the sea?
Yes! Although be aware that there is not always a lifeguard on duty in the areas you might want to swim so you will be getting in the water at your own risk.
