You will pause at beaches reachable only by sea and have time to go snorkeling or swimming in crystal-clear waters and into grottoes. Not too far from the starting point, right after leaving the center of Amalfi, you will get close to the Saint Andrew Grotto, a huge natural sea cave full of stalactites named after the patron saint of Amalfi (Andrea). Then, once passed Duoglio and Santa Croce beaches, you will stop by the "Arc of Lovers", a natural rock arch created millions of years ago by the erosion of the sea whose shape recalls two elephants in the act of kissing. Up to not too long ago young couples used to get married on the top of it. A little later you will cruise in front of the ancient fishing village of Conca dei Marini, passing near the villa of Sophia Loren and seeing the historic hotel “Il Saraceno” located on La Vite Beach. From here you will also have a stunning view of the Santa Rosa Monastery, a former convent now converted into a luxury hotel, once home of the Dominican nuns.

What people are saying about Positano

Another excursion that we had been chasing for 2 days lost by a whisker, in the late evening of December 5th we managed in extremis and with many difficulties to fall back on another choice ... never more beautiful surprise could happen to us: despite the subdued departure and in the rain, Luca our wonderful guide quickly transformed the tone of the day: he told us with great sympathy and competence an infinite number of news proposing exciting stops along the way that made the excursion to the Amalfi Coast a truly great experience, beyond our expectations . We therefore recommend the choice of this platform, also thanking Gabriella who followed us to the last with kindness and care. Giuliana Rosy Claud and Giuly of Padua

I booked late in the evening, immediate confirmation. Departure the next morning at 8.30, our guide Luca was very punctual, nice, very professional and took us to the coast giving us the goodies to know about our tour. Highly recommended if you want to have a nice, pleasant and comfortable day.

Antonio the very friendly driver and the truth is that we could see everything calmly because there were not many people.

Pompeii & Amalfi Coast were both beautiful and a great personalized tour

Not believable views, great organization and excellent driver and guide
