Detailed Description

The charms of the Amalfi Coast have enchanted artists and adventurers, Hollywood stars and couples in search of a getaway. Your 8-day exploration will immerse you in the majesty of the culture and the beauty of the landscape and allow you to discover the trails, vineyards, and cuisine at your preferred pace. Whether wandering the cobblestone streets of a secluded village or indulging in the endless sunlight on a hidden beach, you will quickly see the pleasures of the region beyond and step beyond the façade of the natural beauty to reveal the true heart of Amalfi’s traditions. You will begin as you arrive at the international airport in Naples where you will meet your private transfer.

After you check in at your hotel, your guide will escort you on a tour of the historical city center and the harbor to offer a peek at the illustrious past of Italy’s third largest city. Wake the next day, and your private transfer will take you around the Bay of Naples for a scenic drive along the seaside, and the luxurious view will continue as you reach the Amalfi Coast, where you can see the charming villages and fabled landscape en route to Ravello. You will have the remainder of the day to enjoy the splendor of the hilltop town, and then step onto the winding path along the Valle delle Ferriere the following day to see the veritable Eden of Southern Italy.

Visit hamlets in the hills and wander along the nature reserve to find the waterfalls, rivers, and blossoming flowers. Next day, you will traverse the walkways that lead to nearby towns along the Amalfi Coast to enjoy the quiet streets of the usually overlooked hamlets and villages. At Conca dei Marini, you will witness the stunning colors of the Emerald Grotto, and you can also pay tribute to the birthplace of the Neapolitan dessert of sfogliatella. Continue your discovery of the villages of the Amalfi Coast as you linger in Praiano and Vietri sul Mare, the former known for a hidden beach, the latter celebrated for its ceramic art.

Next, you will explore the remarkable Path of the Gods, a highland trail that connects the secluded hamlets with views that open to the horizon. Follow the ancient lanes the following day at Herculaneum, and then your private transfer will escort you around the Bay of Naples, stopping along the way to see Mount Vesuvius en route to the ancient preserved city that will encompass the highlights of Herculaneum, from the frescoed walls to fully intact multi-story homes. Conclude as your private transfer will meet you at your hotel when you are ready and escort you to the international airport in Naples for your flight home.
