Splendid Amalfi Coast: Amalfi

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 575

Discover the splendours of the Amalfi Coast on this semi-escorted tour from Rome to Amalfi. As you venture to Naples, Pompeii, and Amalfi, you’ll visit popular sights and historical landmarks, enjoy the expertise of a professional guide and comfortable transportation, and have plenty of free time to explore this stunning region at your own pace.


This 3-day Italy vacation connects you from Rome to the Amalfi Coast and the picturesque village of Amalfi, stopping in Naples and Pompeii on route.

Your trip to Italy begins in Rome, where you’ll join your tour and head south. First stop is Naples, the treasure of the Amalfi Coast and the birthplace of Neapolitan culture. Take a walking tour of the old town to see landmarks like the Piazza del Plebiscito and the Royal Palace before trying out some unforgettable Neapolitan dishes. Hint: try the pizza, as there’s no better place to have this famous dish than in the city that invented it. Continue from Naples to nearby Pompeii to explore an ancient city engulfed by volcanic ash during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79AD. That evening, head on to Amalfi, your picturesque home for the next couple days.

Amalfi is small and beautiful, perched on the steep cliffs of the coastline that bears its name. Despite its size, the town was a powerhouse during the Middle Ages. Unfortunately, many of its historical buildings were destroyed during an earthquake in the 14th century. Of the few that remain, you’ll want to explore the Sant’Andrea Cathedral, with its unique Arab and Byzantine style. In addition to exploring the city centre, stroll along the breathtaking cliffs, cool off with the dip in the Mediterranean, and visit the nearby villages of Ravello and Positano. After a couple days in Amalfi, return to Rome, passing once again through Pompeii along the way.

This trip to the Amalfi Coast is a great addition to a longer Italian vacation.
