Top attractions in Amalfi
Located an hour south of Naples, Amalfi is undoubtedly one of the most enchanting cities on the Italian coastline. With cream-colored villas tumbling down to clear blue waters, this town is a paragon of Italian seaside splendor. See for yourself!
Though the entire European rim of the Mediterranean is gorgeous, the Amalfi Coast, with dramatic mountains and white sand beaches, is really something special.
A central landmark in Amalfi, the Amalfi Cathedral dates all the way back to the 9th century and features a fascinating mix of architectural influences.
Located in a river gorge, this impressive Benedictine monastery contains an archive of ancient documents dating back to the 8th century.
Prepare to be stunned by the Villa Cimbrone Gardens, which overlook a breathtaking landscape of jagged, forest-covered mountains and endless sparkling sea.
The Duomo di Salerno, a cathedral built in 1048, is one of the most famous landmarks in Amalfi. The building is dedicated to Matthew the Apostle, whose tomb is found inside.
Villa Rufolo features impressive local architecture, but it's the gardens that make this place a must-visit. If you're lucky you can catch a Classical music concert on the terrace.
Amalfi is a beautiful town full of lush foliage and romantic views best seen on foot. You'll be amazed at all you can discover when you walk this small city. If you need to get across town quickly, however, there are also local bus lines that are inexpensive. Taxis are readily available, as are rental cars.
For breakfast try a cornetto with a coffee. At lunch, find yourself a pizza covered in 'alici' (fresh anchovies) for a truly local taste experience. In the evening, enjoy a caprese salad drizzled with the most decadent olive oil on earth.

What people are saying about Amalfi
5 of us went on a day trip including Pompei and the Amalfi Coast. Our driver Massimo, arranged a guide to take us around Pompei and we learnt masses from our guide. We then drove along the Amalfi coast stopping for coffee, lunch and ice-creams. It was a great day and Massimo was able to tell us a lot about the coastline as we drove. We have lots of great memories.
Really Great Tour from Naples to all the locations included with the tour. Our tour guide, Lea was doing a great job at commentating through the whole of our journey. She was very energetic and welcoming. The tour was not tiring at all. All the mountain View and the Sea View were so panoramic that Italy has got me to fall in love with its culture and places. I still remember the views of Sorrento, Positano and the Amalfi coast. Really enjoyed. I do Recommend this tour.
Views were beautiful, weather was good. To give free time in all the towns - excellent idea. Evertyhing went smoothly, the guide was good. Answered all the questions i had. He provided an interesting information, even gossip about stars living or having their holiday time in Amalfi coast. If u wanna know, for example, how Sophia Loren vila looks - go to this tour. Never in hurry, everything on time.
We had a blast on this tour! Massimo (our driver/guide) was so fun, knowledgeable, and a dang good driver. He stopped periodically between the towns for the incredible views and played photographer for us. So nice. We visited mid-February and were so glad we did. With fewer tourists in the area, we had a little more time to explore and enjoy the incredible views! It was chilly at times, but mostly sunny so it was great, and like I said, not getting delayed by peak season traffic was a huge bonus. The lunch provided was also awesome. It was a beautiful restaurant with a great patio view of the coast line. And as if gelato could get any better, the gelato in Amalfi takes it to another level. Just take this tour. It’s worth every penny and this is definitely not a drive that most people would find comfortable driving by themselves. You also learn way more about the area and can relax between stops.
The tour was awesome, the guide and the driver were very friendly, we had a beautiful weather across the trip and the sights were astonishing. Also the Pompeii experience was very pleasant.
