Boat-Hopping On The Amalfi Coast: Day Trip from Rome

Experience the stunning Amalfi Coast from both land and sea as you spend a day exploring various towns along this storied stretch of coastline. Explore the fashionable boutiques of Positano and get lost in the winding streets of Amalfi town. Cruise the coast in a small boat and head up to a farm and take in stunning sea views as you sip locally-made limoncello.

On this all-inclusive day trip you will enjoy the very best of the Amalfi Coast without having to worry about the logistics. From the winding streets of quaint, cliffside towns, to sparkling blue waters and picturesque hilltop farms; you will see, touch, taste, and experience this incredible region like never before.

The day starts in Rome where you will catch a high-speed train to Naples with an intimate group of no more than 14 fellow travelers and an expert tour leader. From there hop on a private, air-conditioned bus that will wind its way up into the narrow roads of the Amalfi Coast.

Your first stop is Positano, a small fishing town that has long been the holiday destination of choice for VIPs, from the Romantic poets of the 19th century to today’s Hollywood stars. After an orientation walk with your guide you will have two hours of free time in which you can browse the boutiques filled with world-famous beachwear, have leather sandals made to fit your feet and/or enjoy a relaxing lunch of local delicacies at a seaside cafe. Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit too, there’s nothing nicer on a summer’s day than a dip in the sea.

Next, board a boat for a 30-minute ride down the coast to Amalfi town. Along the way you will enjoy spectacular views of the dramatic coastline as it rises out of the sea in soaring cliffs.

At Amalfi, head up one of those cliffs to a lovely lemon orchard where you will enjoy a tasting of one of the region’s most beloved products, the sweet, tangy liqueur called limoncello. The farm is perched above the town and offers stunning views out to sea. After the tasting you will have an hour to explore the town and, if you enjoyed your tasting, buy some limoncello.

To end the day hop back on the boat for a 40-minute cruise to Salerno where you will catch the train back to Rome.
