Duration : 11 Hours
Visit the charming villages of Positano and Sorrento and enjoy a panoramic drive along the stunning Amalfi Coast on this private excursion from Rome.
Features of this day trip to the Amalfi Coast, Positano & Sorrento:
After leaving Rome and driving along the Highway of the Sun, you will cross the picturesque countryside of Lazio and Campania. Along the way, you will pass Montecassino Abbey, famous for its important battles during World War II.
Proceeding along the Bay of Naples, with the ominous figure of Mount Vesuvius to the east, you will get spectacular views of the Mediterranean and the islands on our way to Sorrento.
A summer resort that attracts visitors from all over the world, Sorrento is an enchanting village brimming with character. In ancient times the Greeks and Romans found inspiration here for their art and industry, and it is here that you will find an extraordinary array of woodworks, mosaics, furniture and porcelain in a setting of handsome streets, scenery and people. If you have a sweet tooth (well, even if you don’t) you should taste some Sfogliatelle, a delectable Neapolitan pastry filled with ricotta cheese and candied fruit, or some Limoncello, a scrumptious liqueur made from the renowned local lemons.
If you wish to visit Pompeii, we suggest you choose our tour that goes to the Amalfi Coast, Pompeii & Positano, or request a customizable itinerary.
In Positano, pastel houses are set against the stark cliffside that gives way to the brilliant blue sea. As you descend the many stairs to the seaside promenade and the beach, you will find everything from art galleries to clothing to handicrafts and local products. Lemons are renowned in these parts, perhaps at their most famous when turned into Limoncello, a scrumptious lemon liqueur that you will definitely want to try. Enjoy free time to explore this elegant spot with its many boutiques, open-air markets and seaside cafes.
Your driver will most likely make a suggestion for lunch at Da Costantino restaurant in Positano. Luigi, the owner, is not our uncle or cousin but a close friend, and thousands of clients have enjoyed his cuisine throughout the years. Every day they cook fresh using seasonal ingredients. You may choose to eat here for about 25/30 euro per person or dine at a restaurant of your choice.

Due to strict Italian laws & regulations that protect officially licensed guides, our driving guides can comment and explain the sights only from inside the vehicle but are not allowed to do so once they are outside the vehicle. They are regularly licensed instead to chauffeur the public. We highly recommend that you never book with any touring company that does not make this clear.
