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
Loved all the views. Our tour guide Martina was very knowledgeable and I was amazed at how she could switch between 3 languages very easily. She kidded our driver, Arcangelo, who was great and they made a wonderful team. I would make two suggestions: I was supposed to get picked up at 7:20 and because I wasn’t 100% sure of where I was going I was early and they were early picking me up so I was on the bus at 7:10. By the time we picked everyone else up and left Garibaldi, the last pick up spot it was 8:59 so I had been on the bus for almost 2 hours. I would suggest a different method of picking people up when the distance requires that much time on a bus. An 8 hour tour had turned into a 10 hour tour and when we returned I was not going to sit on the bus again so I took the metro back which ended up being extremely fast compared to the bus ride. The only other thing I would suggest is that when we stop in cities like Ravello, a few suggestions of what to do would be good.
This was a great tour that was well worth the money for what you get to see . Teresa and Jaco were wonderful guides . They let us stop several places for pictures and knew a lot about the history of Amalfi. The coast is gorgeous just like a post card . You don't want to miss these views . They pick you up and drop you off and you get lunch . Teresa was so kind and helpful . I really appreciate her knowledge and was impressed that she knew three languages . She did an excellent job translating for everyone . World Tours is a great company and we loved our experience with them . Jaco was a excellent driver ! We were in some very tight spots and he was able to manage getting around big busses and other groups. The only thing I wish we would have know is that we would get some free time at the beach So we could swim but it was still a nice time to unwind and take beautiful photos . I would definitely use this tour group again . Thanks so much for your help and knowledge.
This was a great way to experience two great places to visit. You will see enough of Pompeii for a great experience. If you want to see it all, take an all day tour. The ride to Positano was breath taking and Positano looks like a resort for the rich and famous. What a site! Our trip guide was Mateo. He walked really fast but he was very enjoyable and friendly. Our guide at Pompeii was Hillaria (I believe). She was an Archeologist (Expert) that had worked on Pompeii and knew everything about it. What a treat. She went a little fast but, you have to go quick sometimes to get from the start to the finish. Worth the money! Was one of the highlights of our two weeks in Italy. Getyourguide has never let us down. Two trips to Europe and 15 tours. All fantastic!!!
Your always insecure awaiting for a bus pick up at a location you’re not familiar with, but it all went well. Signage was good, pick up was on time if not a little early (they say be there 15 min early) and it was friendly and enjoyable. Weekends must be a maze of traffic but on a weekday we were going against it and exited Naples in good time. Guide was good and on those roads the driver was a magician. A fully enjoyable 8+ hours later we were all home again after lots of small villages steep cliffs tiny roads and a good time. P.S. the optional additional bout trip was worth the extra 12 euro.
I was impressed by the boat available, very spacious, strong and well-maintained. The chosen route allowed us to see the most impressive places between Sorento and Amalfi. I appreciated that we were able to swim in two spectacular waters with azure water. The time spent on Amalfi and Positano was enough to see the main goals.
