Features of this day trip onto the Amalfi Coast
Scattered with bars and cafés, not to mention the many shops selling limoncello, casual clothing, swimwear, gifts, basic groceries, and of course, ceramics, Amalfi delights all visitors. However, if one would like to see more than just shops, Amalfi has some interesting sights to explore: the most spectacular cathedral along the coast, the paper factory and its museum. There are also some highly recommended local restaurants, such as Lido Azzuro, Ciccio Cielo Mare e Terra or Il Pesce d'oro, that serve only local cuisine (in particular, fish); for the more refined type, you can try the restaurant La Caravella that holds one Michelin star.
A slow uphill drive along a very narrow road passing several wineries and olive factories, leads to Ravello, a rural village unspoilt by tourism, perched on a cliff overlooking the sea. Ravello's breathtaking views, natural beauty and ancient monuments are presented at their best in the gardens of Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. In high season, these gardens inebriate visitors with the sweet scents of blooming flowers and lemon trees and captivate the eye with their bright colours. There are also many classical concerts held in the gardens of Villa Rufolo, located just off the main square of Ravello; tickets costly approximately Euro 20,00 each. You may visit the main cathedral and the history museum sheltered in its basement or stroll down Via Roma, a road scattered with small boutiques, traditional local restaurants with a cuisine quite different from those close to the sea; Cosimo, Da Salvatore, Villa Maria, Villa Amore are all exceptional.

Is the driver also a guide?
Our English speaking drivers are NOT licensed guides. In order to provide you with the best-in-class service, our English speaking driving guides have been trained to offer our clients a nice overview with information regarding the major highlights avoiding the expensive charges of hiring a private guide. 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.
Does the driver go with us inside the monuments?
No, only a licensed guide is authorized to accompany you during the visit of sights. Our driver will drop you off close to the sights but will stay with the vehicle for the duration of your visit.
