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

Experience the stunning Amalfi Coast from the sea as you spend a day exploring the various towns along this storied stretch of coastline. From the buzzing streets of Positano to peaceful boat rides through crystal clear water and a limoncello tasting at a beautiful lemon grove; you'll get to enjoy all the highlights of the coast during this mini-vacation.

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 enjoy a demonstration and tasting of one of the regions most beloved products; the sweet, tangy liqueur called limoncello. You'll also get to indulge in some homemade treats from the region such as freshly made lemon cookies and lemon cake. With plenty of time to explore, you will return to the streets of Amalfi for a little strolling, shopping and snacking.

Take in the epic coastline once again as another ferry ride takes you to the neighboring 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.
