Amalfi Coast: Positano & the Isle of Capri

6 DaysStarting at $5,195

Overview

On a launch approaching the Amalfi Coast at the start of our tours, you face a startling sight— like oversized 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 Positano encourage a nice slow pace perfect for absorbing the atmosphere. We also settle in for two mellow days on the glorious island of Capri—one of our favorite places in Italy. We 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. See Sicily, too! Our Sicily tour starts the day after Amalfi ends. Pair up the two for an amazing Italian vacation. Call 800.200.3887 for details.

Highlights

DAY 1 - NAPLES / POMPEII
We meet in Naples (1 night), one of Italy's classic cities (not to mention the birthplace of pizza). From here, we make a short journey to Pompeii.  We explore Pompeii with an archeologist friend. Visiting the most famous archaeological site in the world. Buried in volcanic ash in 79 AD, Pompeii is famous for its excavations that reveal a complete city, including streets, shops, buildings and many beautiful villas.

DAYS 2-3 - CAPRI
After breakfast, we skim across the bay by ferry to Capri (2 nights). From our luxurious hotel on the island, we've arranged a fascinating array of activities. There's time for shopping in the cobblestone lanes. Memorable walks here include an amble along the coast to the villa where Churchill and Eisenhower managed much of WWII. We'll lunch at the exclusive Marina Piccola and view the 14th-century monastery atop Monte Solaro at the top of the island.

DAYS 4-6 - POSITANO
Back to the mainland, 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. Our trails also lead to Ravello with stupendous views from Villa Rufolo and to a tiny limoncello factory to see how the local lemon liquor is made. On our final day, we toast our week together with a pizza making instruction overlooking the sea. We say ciao in Naples…or join our guide on the ferry to Palermo for a sunny week in Sicily.
