We very much enjoyed our private Vespa tour along the Amalfi coast with Vincenzo and Luigi. This tour is a great way to see other cities on the coast that you aren't staying at that you might want to make a day trip to. To start Vincenzo and Luigi picked my wife and I up at our hotel in Positano. We then went east and stoped at a fruit stand with and enjoyed a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice with a view of Positano. We continued east towards Amalfi and on our way stoped in Praiano. After that we stopped and did a 30 minute tour of the Emerald Grotto. Then we made our way to Amalfi where our guides showed us around the city and then allowed us to explore for 45 minutes. Next we made our way to Rovelo. Similarly we got some information on the town and then could explore. Finally we stopped for lunch on our way back to Positano.
