Detailed Description

Experience the authentic beauty and genuine charm of the Amalfi Coast on your 8-day hands-on tour. Whether you are an artist at heart or a home-taught chef, a lover of Mediterranean cuisine or a collector of shimmering ceramics, in Positano you will find an enchanting world in which you can easily cultivate your artistic self. Trails crisscross the hillsides that connect the tranquil fishing villages. Fishing boats wade in the serene Mediterranean waters along the small marinas as hidden grottoes and ancient churches are equally fascinating. Each day in Positano provides another chance to sample traditional cuisine and relish the relaxed pace of a majestic town.

When you arrive at Naples International Airport, your private transfer will greet you at baggage claim. Travel alongside the Bay of Naples to reach Positano, the most westerly town of the Amalfi Coast. Venture along the terraced streets before you delight in your first taste of Campania with a fabulous chef’s tasting menu. The next day is at your leisure to discover the splendor of the Amalfi Coast as you desire. Lounge on the pebbled beaches or hike to the panoramic views along the Path of the Gods. You could even spend the day in ancient Pompeii for a view of life in the Roman port city.

After breakfast the following day, you will meet your ceramics instructor after breakfast for your first in a series of classes dedicated to teaching you the delicate art. In the afternoon, you will meet your cooking instructor for a fabulous introduction to the Mediterranean kitchen. Recreate traditional southern Italian recipes with a gregarious instructor eager to toast with a regional glass of wine. Begin the next day with your second ceramics lesson to decorate your personalized memento before it goes into the kiln. Venture into the olive groves on the grounds of a private olive oil producer to learn about the historical process and its roots in the region. Follow your tour with a sample of the various types of olive oils created in the factory, from extra-virgin olive oil to orange infused oils. In the evening, return to Positano for another cooking class to take you deeper into the heritage of the unique dishes of Positano.

Move on to your final ceramics class to finish your beautiful creation before you pack it away to take home with you. For lunch, you will then embark on a fabulous gourmet tasting at a restaurant with a wine pairing for each dish. Next, you will traverse the Amalfi Coast to visit the gorgeous beachside streets of Amalfi and the meandering hillside lanes of Ravello. Experience the sweet flavor and crispy texture of sfogliatella on a bakery tour of Ravello. Linger in the peaceful atmosphere of the morning in Positano the next day before you embark on your final cooking class on the coast. Flavor abounds, and tradition comes to the forefront during your time in the kitchen. Your private transfer will meet you at the hotel in Positano on your final day to escort you to Naples International Airport for your flight home.
