5. Rome: Amalfi Coast Tour With Limoncello Tasting & Cruise
Discover the wonders of the Amalfi Coast on this guided trip from Rome. Ride a train to Salerno and take in the passing sights on a ferry ride along the coast. Stop in Amalfi and visit a lemon orchard for a limoncello tasting.
The day starts in Rome where you’ll catch a high-speed train to Salerno with your group of travelers and a tour leader. From there, hop on a ferry ride that takes you along the stunning Amalfi Coast.
The first stop is Amalfi, where you’ll head up to a lovely lemon orchard and enjoy a tasting of one of the region’s most beloved products: the sweet, tangy liqueur called limoncello. The farm is perched above the town and offers stunning views out to sea.
After the tasting, take advantage of free time to explore the town and, if you enjoyed your tasting, buy some limoncello.
Embark on another ferry ride along the epic coastline to your next stop, the neighboring town of Positano, a small fishing town that has long been the holiday destination of choice for VIPs, from the Romantic poets of the 19th century to today’s Hollywood stars.
After an orientation walk with your guide, you’ll have two hours of free time. Browse the boutiques filled with world-famous beachwear, have leather sandals made to fit your feet, or enjoy a lunch of local delicacies at a seaside cafe (costs not included).
Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit, as there’s nothing nicer on a summer’s day than a dip in the sea. After you've gotten to know Positano, head back on the boat for a return cruise to Salerno where you’ll catch the train back to Rome.
