What You Can Expect

Naples Shore Excursion: Sorrento and Amalfi Coast Independent Day Trip from Naples

Admire the stunning Amalfi Coast on an independent shore excursion from Naples

Meet your driver at your cruise port in Naples, where you’ll step aboard your minivan with your small group.

Head south to the town of Sorrento, with sweeping views of the Bay of Naples. Enjoy an hour of free time to wander the cafe-lined square of Piazza Tasso, check out the 15th-century cathedral or peruse the local shops.

Afterward, reunite with your driver and begin the ride along the Amalfi Coast, a 40-mile (64-km) shoreline dotted with pastel-colored villages and dramatic cliffs. Travel toward the town of Positano, with views of the Mediterranean and the region’s lemon groves lining the road.

Then, soak up an hour in Positano at your own pace. Visit the Church of St Maria Assunta, enjoy a coffee at a local café or browse the chic selection of shops.

Continue to the town of Amalfi and take another hour to explore at your leisure. Try some southern Italian fare for lunch (own expense) or admire the marble, 9th-century cathedral.

Your final stop takes you higher into the cliffs, to the town of Ravello. Consider using your free hour here to see the 13th-century Villa Rufolo (own expense), with gardens showcasing spectacular views of the coast.

After a full day of independent exploration, your trip will conclude back at the Naples cruise port.

Excellent excursion. Very well planned and executed!. Driver was informative and courteous. Obviously not a whole lot of time at each location but that was to be expected given the fact that it was a shore excursion. However there was enough time allocated to get a good feel for each location and to take pictures, do some shopping and even had time to tour the famous church in Amalfi.

We were traveling by cruise ship. The van was waiting for us when we got through the port gates. There were 2 other couples waiting in the van, so we had a nice small group. The van could have held 8.

Remember that you are hiring a driver, not a guide. The driver did point out a few things as we drove along and suggested some places to wander to at each of the 4 stops. We had plenty of time to wander and poke around at each stop. The drop off and pick up points were very convenient and easy to find when it was time to get back to the van. It was very nice that all the folks on the trip were very good about getting back on time. As this was at the end of the season, a lot of restaurants were closed. Our driver suggested a restaurant just outside Amalfi, Calajanara. It was an excellent recommendation.

It was a great way to see the coast and get a taste of what is there.

The tour was excellent and so was our guide. Unfortunately, I can't remember his name right now. He was punctual and very
knowledgeable and made the whole trip very enjoyable. The excursion was well worth the time and definitely the money. Will use
Viator again.

Beautiful drive. Because it's unguided, this was perfect for my family. My parents are in their 70s and my daughter is 19. We were able to go at our own pace.

Actually, it is a do-it-yourself tour. Do not expect your guide to provide any details or information. The Amalfi Coast is beautiful. We enjoyed every city. I can recommend this if you do not wanted a guided tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

Had a great time. Packed in a lot of stops along the coast Amalfi, Positano, Ravello and Sorrento. Our driver was great, even took us to a restaurant along the way with an amazing view.

The tour was great. The Amalfi Coast is very picturesque. The driver was very good at navigating through the narrow streets. The size of the van and the tour group are just right for the area. Time allotment is good enough for the towns visited.

This excursion was everything that we had hoped for. Our guide was fantastic. Great Value

Fantastic excursion to the Amalfi Coast, including time in Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. All the towns were beautiful. The drive along the coast was amazing with fantastic views. The time restrictions, due to ship time in the port, only allowed for a quick visit in each town but it was enough to sample these fantastic towns and views. We had time to walk around, shop a little, stop and have a quick bite to eat in a couple of the towns. More time in each place will have to be done on return visits, but this was an excellent introduction to each place. It was one of my favorite excursion days on the trip.
