Splendid Amalfi Coast: Positano

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 718

Discover the majesty of the Amalfi Coast on this semi-escorted tour from Rome to Positano. As you venture to Naples, Pompeii, and Positano, 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 town of Positano, 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 Positano, your picturesque home for the next couple days.

Positano is a picturesque town perched on the cliffs of the Amalfi Coast that’s arguably the coastal highlight. It’s been a chic vacation getaway for decades and there’s a lot to admire about its collection of pebbled beaches, gorgeous pastel homes, and historical landmarks, like the domed Chiesa di Santa Maria Assunta. Spend a couple days shopping the boutique fashion shores, swimming in the Mediterranean, and dining on incredible South Italian cuisine. Explore the coastline and visit the nearby villages of Ravello and Amalfi. After a couple days in Positano, 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.
