Private Guided Tours of Amalfi Coast

This is the most beautiful and natural part of Campania, in the central south of Italy, near Herculaneum and Pompeii, a place of ancient origins with excavations that have become one of the most important attractions in the whole of Italy. Naples, the capital of the region, is not far away and also has many beautiful historical monuments and large squares. However, people planning tours to the Amalfi coast and Sorrento coasts to enjoy a period of relaxation rarely leave these places to visit the chaotic city. They usually prefer nature walks and historical trips to the islands of Capri or Ischia, both of which can be easily reached from…

SORRENTO AND TOURS OF THE AMALFI COAST

When considering tours to the Amalfi Coast; Sorrento is the most famous town on the Sorrento peninsula and a traditional holiday destination along with Meta, Piano di Sorrento and Sant’Agnello. Sorrento offers clear seas with lots of picturesque coves, large hotels immersed within the greenery of the citrus groves, and renowned local crafts. Of particular interest are the Cathedral, the Sedile Dominova and the Museo Correale of Terranova. Easy to reach by car, train or jetfoil, Sorrento is also the venue for the International Film Meetings.
Massa Lubrense is one of the most beautiful localities on the Sorrento Peninsula. The coast is very rugged, with lots of creeks and fjords, and can be admired from the sea in a boat, or on land along the zigzagging coastal roads or the pathways hidden amidst the vegetation.

The beach and cove of Marina della Lobra create a small tourist port which is used by the entire municipality. One of the most beautiful places in Massa Lubrense – and the whole Sorrento Peninsula – is the Baia di Jeranto, a spectacular cove that is now part of the Parco Marino di Punta Campanella and is, therefore, a protected area.

The Amalfi Coast includes the seaside areas that stretch from Vietri sul Mare to Positano.
The localities situated along the coast or very close to the same are: Vietri sul Mare, Cetara, Maiori, Minori, Tramonti, Ravello, Scala, Atrani, Amalfi, Agerola, Conca dei Marini, Furore, Praiano and Positano. The Amalfi Coast is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The coasts of Amalfi and Sorrento are named after the two main cities located at opposite sides of the peninsula: Amalfi, the historic and geographical center of the part of the peninsula between Positano and Vietri sul Mare,and Sorrento at the center of the part diametrically opposite. Two cities that are very different, like all the other towns in this area, each of which have their own, original traditions and places. From the province of Salerno to Castellammare di Stabia, in the province of Naples, there are around 100 kilometers of coastline overlooking the Gulf of Salerno and the Mediterranean Sea, a natural paradise that is famous all over the world.

Uncontaminated locations with incredible landscapes and towns filled with hidden art, history and culture. Tours of the Amalfi Coast can include may smaller and more local towns such as Vietri, Maiori, Minori, Ravello, Amalfi, Praiano, Furore, Positano and Sant’Agata. Sorrento, Vico Equestre, Sant’Agnello and Massa Lubrense are on the Sorrento coast, but most still consider this the Amalfi area when planning any tours of the Amalfi coast.

These are just a few of the locations you must consider when planning tours of the Amalfi coast. The area is full of adventure and exploration.

What to See In Amalfi Coast

The Amalfi Cost offers many highlights but several shine through as must see locations.  Sorrento is a major part of why people go to the Amalfi Coast. We recommend that Sorrento be your base location when exploring the area because of the ease of access to public transportation and guided tours which depart from Sorrento daily.

The towns on the coastline such as Amalfi, Ravello, Positano and Minori offer the visitor the chance to experience coastal life as a local. Itlay4Real can offer driver guides that can take you by private car or van along the cliffside to visit some of these towns so you don’t have to worry about driving.

Don’t forget to sample some of the famous local flavors such as Limoncello the Italian lemon liqueur made in Sorrento or mozzarella di bufala the delicious cheese made from the Mediterranean buffalo. No matter what you choose to see in the Amalfi Coast, you will be delighted.

Positano

Is popular for its central location, its restaurants and jaw-dropping beauty. Despite these charms, some might find the peak season crowds, prices, and stairs overwhelming.

Ravello

An enchanting village perched on a ridge high above Amalfi and the neighboring town of Atrani. Ravello is relatively out of the way and the bulk of its visitors come during the day, leaving the nights gloriously quiet. There are several hikes in the area—even down to Amalfi.

Sorrento

Sorrento is convenient for visitors pairing the Amalfi Coasts with a stay in, situated just across the way. It also marks the start of the 43-mile infamously winding coastal road that runs to Salerno.

Amalfi

Amalfi is the Amalfi Coast’s largest city, but it’s still small enough to feel intimate. It is a convenient base for excursions to Capri and the Grotta dello Smeraldo. Amalfi is romantically situated at the mouth of a deep gorge and its Duomo is impressive.
