Itinerary

  • The tour starts from Achille Lauro Parking Area at 0750h (7:50am). Accompanied by a guide you will board a coach for a beautiful drive along the Amalfi coast to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Your first stop is Amalfi, beautifully situated on limestone cliffs, overlooking the Gulf of Salerno. Its name is derived from the nymph, Amalfi, loved by Hercules. Amalfi's incredible cathedral, sitting atop a wide flight of steps, dominates the entire square and is the town's centrepiece. Housed in the magnificent Cathedral are the remains of Saint Andrew, the Patron Saint of Amalfi and of Scotland. Continue to Ravello, one of the most attractive destinations on the Amalfi Coast. Most of Ravello’s monuments date back to the 11th to 13th centuries, when Arab-Sicilian art reached its peak. The magnificent Villa Rufolo functioned as a watch tower in ancient times and its panoramic garden was the setting for many of the works by Richard Wagner. You can wander through the tropical plants and enjoy fabulous views of the coastline in this beautiful garden. At the end of the tour you will be driven back to Sorrento. You will be dropped off at the Achille Lauro Parking Area around 1600h (4:00pm).
