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
This was a great tour that was well worth the money for what you get to see . Teresa and Jaco were wonderful guides . They let us stop several places for pictures and knew a lot about the history of Amalfi. The coast is gorgeous just like a post card . You don't want to miss these views . They pick you up and drop you off and you get lunch . Teresa was so kind and helpful . I really appreciate her knowledge and was impressed that she knew three languages . She did an excellent job translating for everyone . World Tours is a great company and we loved our experience with them . Jaco was a excellent driver ! We were in some very tight spots and he was able to manage getting around big busses and other groups. The only thing I wish we would have know is that we would get some free time at the beach So we could swim but it was still a nice time to unwind and take beautiful photos . I would definitely use this tour group again . Thanks so much for your help and knowledge.
Your always insecure awaiting for a bus pick up at a location you’re not familiar with, but it all went well. Signage was good, pick up was on time if not a little early (they say be there 15 min early) and it was friendly and enjoyable. Weekends must be a maze of traffic but on a weekday we were going against it and exited Naples in good time. Guide was good and on those roads the driver was a magician. A fully enjoyable 8+ hours later we were all home again after lots of small villages steep cliffs tiny roads and a good time. P.S. the optional additional bout trip was worth the extra 12 euro.
Well organised from start to finish, great value for money, left Naples at 8.30pm and back at 8pm! It was an amazing way to experience the coast line and beautiful Almafi and Positano from the boat. Boat was lovely, only 7 of us on board which was perfect so you could lie down on the cushioned deck. Offered lots of drinks on board ( soft and alcoholic) and had two welcome stops (one out and one Back) to swim in the cold but clear water. Would highly recommend it, was the highlight of our trip.
I was impressed by the boat available, very spacious, strong and well-maintained. The chosen route allowed us to see the most impressive places between Sorento and Amalfi. I appreciated that we were able to swim in two spectacular waters with azure water. The time spent on Amalfi and Positano was enough to see the main goals.
Our guide (Alessandra) and driver (Antonio) were wonderful! The drive out o Pompeii along the Amalfi Coast was stunning. I learned so much about each site and about Roman and Greek architecture, history and legends I highly recommend this tour.
