Practical Info

The itinerary is flexible. Along the coast there are several small villages that definitely worth a stop. The most famous are Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and RavelloLeisure Italy recommends to choose 2 or 3 places on a full day tour, in order to relax and enjoy these travel destinations at your own pace. Nonetheless the Amalfi Coast can be entirely explored with a full day tour. You can decide on tour with your driver where to start from and how long to stop in each place.

Your English speaking driver will meet you where requested. He will be able to point you out the main attractions and to give you some hints about the different spots along the way. Where possible he will stop so you can enjoy some great photo opportunities.

The Sorrento coastal drive is gorgeous: dramatic cliffs, beaches, olive trees growing on terraces, lemon and orange orchards, a few villages and their docks. You will certainly have the chance to get off the car for some nice pictures or also stop at one of the limoncello factories along the road.

In Sorrento ask your driver to let you off in the city centre, in order to explore the old town and reach the spectacular garden of St. Francis with a picturesque sea-view dominating the entire bay of Naples.

The town is colourful, mostly pedestrian and absolutely safe. Feel free to wander around the narrow alleys, the little shops and the good gelaterias (ice-cream places). There are plenty of excellent places to sit for lunch, Leisure Italy will be pleased to suggest some of our favourite restaurants. Don’t forget this is the land of limoncello liquor, caprese salad, spaghetti with sea-food and much more… Sorrento is also well known for its in-laid wood-works.

From Sorrento your Private Tour of the Amalfi Coast will start driving up-hill across the mountain range, through orange and lemon orchards. Once at the top you are on the Amalfi Drive, this incredible winding road grabbing to the cliff.

You will find yourself immerged in a Mediterranean dream: steep cliffs, blue sea, luxurious villas. Along the Amalfi Drive there are three famous small towns: Positano, Amalfi and Ravello.

The first village driving from Sorrento is Positano, with its white-washed houses and its fancy shops and art galleries. Even though it turned a bit touristy lately if you wish you can ask your driver he drive to stop downtown so you can discover the village on uour own. Positano is mostly pedestrian from the road down all the way down to the beach.

Amalfi is the most glorious town on the Coast, attracting people from all over the world with the richness of its past. If you like you can visit the Cathedral of St Andrew or you can get away from the crowds exploring the maze of narrow walkways and travel through time back to the Middle-Ages! Not to be missed is a taste of the local lemon pastry called “Delizia al limone”.

As your last stop you could visit Ravello, the most elegant and scenic little town on the Amalfi Coast with its medieval villas and astonishing views. Leisure Italy recommend a visit either to Villa Cimbrone or to Villa Rufolo. As an alternative you can browse the ceramic factories and the art galleries, or simply relax in the central piazza and watch the world go by from one of the nice cafés in front of the Church of St Pantaleone.

The tour will end where it started unless differently required.

Great tour to take with your family to see the gorgeous Amalfi Coast! Giuseppe was an amazing tour guide and knew a lot of the history of Naples. We went New Year’s Eve and he knew when places would be less crowded so we could enjoy the calm Amalfi Coast, Pontone, and Ravello.
