1. From Positano: Amalfi Coast Boat Tour
Embark on a full-day boat tour of the Amalfi Coast from Positano, Nerano, or Praiano. Visit picturesque coastal towns, such as Maiori, swim in the turquoise lagoons, and admire hidden grottoes. Discover the seaside villages with time to stop and swim off of the boat in various coves and bays. Meet your captain at Positano Pier and set sail for Li Galli private islands, where celebrities enjoy private hideaway vacations. Swim in the sea by the islands and bask in the Mediterranean sunshine. See crumbling Norman towers dating back from the 13th century mixed with modern-day luxury hotels and villas. The captain is a local of the area which means that he will show you the true beauty of the Amalfi Coast without the long lines, traffic and noise. Be sure to save room for lunch as there are many seaside restaurants easily accessible by boat. Your captain can suggest some great spots if you're not sure where to go. Pass Atrani, the smallest village in Italy, and head to Marmorata, where a waterfall flows into the sea. The quaint seaside village of Minori will come next, full of colorful beach umbrellas and Italian men fishing off of the pier. Finally, reach Maiori, a busy tourist town. Your captain will take you to Pandora's grotto, a cave accessible only by boat. Here, see sea fossils and ancient stalactites.
