What You Can Expect

Sorrento and Amalfi Coast Independent Day Trip from Naples

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

Begin your day trip at your central hotel in Naples or at the city's train station. Meet your driver and hop aboard your minivan toward Sorrento, the clifftop resort just west of the Amalfi Coast, a 40-mile (64-km) shoreline renowned for its brightly-hued villages and dramatic cliffs.

After a relaxing journey, arrive in Sorrento, with an hour of free time to roam at your own pace. Check out the town's central Piazza Tasso, the 15th-century cathedral or peruse the local shops and cafes.

Reunite with your group and continue along the Amalfi Coast, with views of the glimmering Mediterranean and the region's famous lemon groves.
Arrive in Positano, a town of confetti-colored buildings spread between the cliffs. Enjoy an hour of free time to admire the Church of St Maria Assunta, relax with coffee and a pastry or pick up a souvenir at the chic boutiques and galleries.
Your next stop offers an hour in Amalfi, where you can savor some southern Italian fare for lunch (own expense) or visit the impressive 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.

Afterward, drive back to Naples, where your trip ends at your original departure point or any city center location of your choosing.

No words to explain how wonderful this tour was - even despite the horrible weather. Our guide, David, was amazing and such a good driver through the winding roads. Not once did I feel nervous or worried. It was lovely driving through the entire coast throughout the day and getting to explore different locations. He recommended things for us to do/try at each stop. We had lunch at a delicious restaurant on a cliff overlooking the water with food that I still dream of. This was one of our favorite days during our 9 day trip through the Mediterranean.

Our driver, Mauro, was a great fellow to travel with.

Our driver was very nice and we enjoyed touring the 4 cities. In each city we had enough time to walk around, grab something quick and even see a few sights - the Cathedral in Amalfi is worth checking out.

This trip was one of the highlights of my stay around Naples. Taking an independent trip means you don't have to look or plan for transport and that takes a lot of stress out of the trip. Mauro was a wonderful driver and always ready to help. What a pleasure to sit back and watch him negotiate the heavy traffic, the hairpin bends and the narrow roads. The other benefit is that when you arrive at a town, Mauro would point you in the direction of where you want to go and you choose what you want to see or do in each town. You don't have to do what others want to do but explore on your own. A win win in my books :

This was an independent tour in that we visited 4 Amalfi Coast towns departing from Naples. Well worth the trip because the towns and scenery are incredibly beautiful. The minibus was not very comfortable, but our driver was great on the twisty roads. A great taste of the Amalfi coast. We had spent time there before, but took our granddaughter on a spring break trip. Lovely!

This was an outstanding decision to take this Sorrento and Almafi Coast tour! We were picked up at our hotel. I appreciate that the driver remembered our request to sit up in the front part of the van. There were 7 of us in the van. Great driver who was a tour guide to us, as well. The best part is that this was this is the easiest way to get to all the towns and sights on the Amalfi Coast in a day. Our driver stopped at special scenic over watch locations on the road to take some beautiful pictures of all the towns along the way. I highly recommend this day trip for anyone who is in Naples and wants to see the Almafi coast.

Great trip. Recommended as you stop off at Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. You can determine where you want to eat at each stop. Driver was very pleasant. Happy i did this day trip. Pickups were on time and hassle free.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2018

The driver was prompt, an expert driver and polite. He allowed for time in each of the 4 cities. I would recommend this tour for anyone like myself who does not want to drive. The driving in Naples is scary and roads on the coast are narrow. We had to back up twice after making a turn because of big travel buses.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

On a warm sunny day this trip is perfect. The programme allows you sufficient time to explore the towns without feeling rushed. As this is not a guided tour, you do not have to stick to the group, and can freely spend the one hour in each town sighting seeing, eating and shopping as you wish. For our group, the driver was friendly and helpful, and would often stop by the road side to let us take pictures. Wonderful trip.
