Introduction
On a launch approaching the Amalfi peninsula from the Bay of Naples, you face a startling sight—like oversize rock climbers, gleaming villas cling with no visible foothold to the sheer cliffs. You have to ask yourself how…why? But when you swing open the shutters in your cliffside hotel room, the jaw-dropping view is all the answer you need. Situated on the “ankle” of the Italian boot, Amalfi has a balmy climate. Orange trees line village streets. Breezy seaside footpaths around Ravello and Positano encourage a nice slow pace perfect for absorbing the atmosphere. We enjoy scenic coastal walks on the glorious island of Capri—one of our favorite places in Italy. We get to the rarely visited rim of Mount Vesuvius and make time for Pompeii. And unlike most visitors, you’ll see Amalfi in the best way—in the company of an Italian friend who knows the ins and outs of life on the edge of the sea.
Itinerary at a glance
DAY 1 - NAPLES / MT. VESUVIUS
We meet in Naples, one of Italy's classic cities (not to mention the birthplace of pizza). From here, we get to explore the hometown of our guide, seeing the ancient city’s treasures. We make a short journey to Mt. Vesuvius. Here you will enjoy a guided walk along the rim of the crater.
 
DAYS 2-3 – CAPRI / SORRENTO
After breakfast, we skim across the bay by ferry to Capri. We've arranged a fascinating array of activities. Memorable walks include the exclusive Marina Piccola and view the 14th-century monastery atop Monte Solaro at the top of the island. Back in Sorrento our trails also lead to stupendous views from Villa Rufolo and to a tiny limoncello factory to see how the local lemon liquor is made.

DAYS 4-6 - POSITANO
En route to Positano, we'll follow the spectacular Amalfi coast to our cliffside hotel built in the 17th century. Our leisurely days here include an incredibly scenic walk through "the valley of the mills" for a private demonstration of medieval papermaking. We toast our week together with a pizza making instruction overlooking the sea. Before we part ways, we explore Pompeii with an archeologist friend. We say ciao in Naples.
