Amalfi Coast Tours

The Amalfi Coast is an artist’s dream: Pastel villas are perched on terraced cliffs, lemon groves spill out onto walking trails and the sparkling Mediterranean extends as far as the eye can see. Beyond the stunning scenery, Italians and out-of-towners alike go on Amalfi Coast vacations to experience rich traditions, sample fresh-from-the-sea cuisine and revel in the laid-back coastal attitude of the friendly locals.

Amalfi Coast travel tips

Sample the citrus

The Amalfi Coast, especially Positano, is known for lemons. Sample the tart flavor in everything from seafood and pasta dishes to gelato and, of course, limoncello.

Shop for ceramics

Looking for a souvenir to remember your trip? The region has specialized in ceramic hand-painted pottery for centuries. For the very best, the tiny village of Vietri sul Mare is the place to go.

Take a day trip

While the coastline is the ideal backdrop for relaxing by the shore, it’s also a great home base for day trips in Italy. Hop aboard a boat for a quick cruise to iconic Capri, travel north to the ruins of Pompeii or head inland to farm country.

Can’t-miss views for Amalfi Coast vacations

The scenery of the Amalfi Coast is unbeatable—here are a few spots to slow down and soak in the view.

Path of the Gods

Southern Italy is known for its walking trails, and this hike shows off the coast’s raw beauty more than any other. The mountaintop Path of the Gods starts in Agerola, a small village next to Sorrento, and then winds through cliffside paths, vineyards and forests before ending in the “lost village” of Nocelle.

The island of Capri

Lavish villas, ancient ruins and crystal water—the island of Capri has all the quintessential views that coastal Italy is known for. The most iconic of them all? The Blue Grotto, one of the many sea caves on the perimeter of the island.

Positano harbor

The village of Positano is all about color. A rainbow of bright boats and umbrellas line the harbor and beach. As you continue up the hill, villas and restaurants climb the surrounding cliffs, all awash in pale pinks, oranges and golds.
