Top attractions in Amalfi
Located an hour south of Naples, Amalfi is undoubtedly one of the most enchanting cities on the Italian coastline. With cream-colored villas tumbling down to clear blue waters, this town is a paragon of Italian seaside splendor. See for yourself!
Though the entire European rim of the Mediterranean is gorgeous, the Amalfi Coast, with dramatic mountains and white sand beaches, is really something special.
A central landmark in Amalfi, the Amalfi Cathedral dates all the way back to the 9th century and features a fascinating mix of architectural influences.
Located in a river gorge, this impressive Benedictine monastery contains an archive of ancient documents dating back to the 8th century.
Prepare to be stunned by the Villa Cimbrone Gardens, which overlook a breathtaking landscape of jagged, forest-covered mountains and endless sparkling sea.
The Duomo di Salerno, a cathedral built in 1048, is one of the most famous landmarks in Amalfi. The building is dedicated to Matthew the Apostle, whose tomb is found inside.
Villa Rufolo features impressive local architecture, but it's the gardens that make this place a must-visit. If you're lucky you can catch a Classical music concert on the terrace.
Amalfi is a beautiful town full of lush foliage and romantic views best seen on foot. You'll be amazed at all you can discover when you walk this small city. If you need to get across town quickly, however, there are also local bus lines that are inexpensive. Taxis are readily available, as are rental cars.
For breakfast try a cornetto with a coffee. At lunch, find yourself a pizza covered in 'alici' (fresh anchovies) for a truly local taste experience. In the evening, enjoy a caprese salad drizzled with the most decadent olive oil on earth.

What people are saying about Amalfi
Very good, he was in time with all schedule, funny and very professional !!! Very nice trip...go, you won't regret !
Unique experience. Both our tour guides (Kyle and Paolo) were very exciting and educational. Kyle fed out information about Rome and the passing cities (Naples, Amalfi and Pompeii), while Paolo is a person who loves every single corner of Pompeii and teaches you as much he can in the time given, in a very unique and fun way. Thank you so much for the tours.
We were picked up from the Hotel Terminus at exactly 8:30am. Our guide was Guisy. We left immediately after (the hotel was the last pickup spot). We booked the small group and I believe the total was 14 people. First stop was in Sorrento. Good view. We stopped at what appeared to be a gift shop and to taste some lemon drink. Spent around 15-20 minutes there. Next stop was Positano, which was amazing! Another 15-20 minutes spent here enjoying the view. Afterwards, we went to Amalfi where we had a boat tour (not included unless you paid for it in the booking or on the spot), which was great! Spent around 25 minutes on the boat. Then ate at a nearby restaurant, which was decent. We were then given 45 minutes to spend in Amalfi. We then left to our final stop at Ravello, which again we were given 30-40 minutes to walk around. Only complaint i have is we did not stop on the east side of Positano (which is the view you normally see in photos).
The trip was informative, fun, and something I would do again. Lovely experience. Definitely something you should book. Happy travels with guides and drivers like them. Ciao.
Ciro was a very friendly driver, was in time on the place of appointment, gave a lot of comment. There was enough time to visit the highlights of the places we stopped and the route back gave us an idea of the mountains surrounding Naples
