The Amalfi drive is said to be the most spectacular in Europe and from Sorrento the winding cliff top road offers continuous breathtaking panoramic views. The first stop will be high above Positano, one of the jewels of this coastline built on different levels from the main road all the way down to sea like a “waterfall cascading down the rocks”. Further along the coast, the coach makes a refreshment stop where you can admire the local ceramics in a traditional shop and enjoy panoramic views before going on to the town of Amalfi, which gives its name to the whole coast on which it lies. Once a thriving Marine Republic along with Genoa, Pisa and Venice and now a thriving holiday resort, this ancient town is dominated by the magnificent 9th century Cathedral where the remains of the Patron Saint of Amalfi are preserved. Free time to explore the cobbled backstreets of Amalfi before continuing to the medieval town of Ravello which nestles in the mountainside eleven hundred feet above the sea and where you can enjoy the best views of the Amalfi coastline overlooking Minori, Maiori and beyond. This charming little town has a main square where the centrepiece is the bright picturesque 11th century Cathedral. Free time at disposal with the option to visit Villa Rufolo with its gardens and amazing views across the bay of Salerno.
Please note: Entrance fees to the Cathedrals and Villa Rufolo not included. Don’t forget your camera, comfortable footwear, water, sun protection and hat. Knees and shoulders must always be covered when visiting churches.
