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
Our guide (Sabrina) was very friendly and knowledgeable and the driver (Lino) was very professional. We visited Sorrento (which was not listed in the tour description, so we got it as a gratuity, thank you Sabrina and Lino), Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello. The lunch was decent and in a nice restaurant in Conca dei Marini with a beautiful view over the coastline. We had approximately 50 min per location for the visit so use your time wisely because it is running out very fast! Be prepared that you will spend half of the tour in the bus but then I cannot think of a better way to experience the Amalfi coast in such a short time. A small tip - if possible, sit on the right side of the bus and enjoy the ride (the views are much more rewarding compared to the left side).
A great day, from start to finish, our guide Marco, and the driver too, made the trip a very beautiful event, the coastline is just so stunning how could you go wrong... Do take the optional bost trip, for just a few extra euros, you get to see the coastline from a very different perspective... In short, thumbs up all around.. ☀️☀️
I thought our guide would have been our tour guide at Pompei but that wasn’t the case. Overall we were satisfied with our trip. We had a private tour. Just us.
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.
