Approaching Positano by sea, your first impression will be unforgettable. With its multi-colored Moorish-style houses clinging to the rugged slopes, it is straight out of a postcard. Although now one of the Åmalfi Çoast's finest retreats for the wealthy, in 1953, when writer John Steinbeck lived here, the town was a forgotten fishing village, loved by artists. Enjoy time meandering through the streets and browsing Positano's smart boutiques for merchandise such as the locally made cotton clothing that's become the town's signature. Then, board a private boat and ride to the enchanting village of Amalfi, which has a Spanish flavor, compliments of its lovely white houses that face the bright blue bay. Flanked by an old Saracen tower and a 12th-century Capuchin monastery, Amalfi boasts a splendid cathedral dating from the 11th century that is covered with geometrical designs in colored stones. After admiring the cathedral, you will have free time to explore the charms of Amalfi on your own.

Please note: The tour portion of Positano is non-guided. Local guides will give you a brief orientation on the way to Positiano so that you may have time on your own to tour the area. Large boats will transport guests to Positiano; the boats will only depart when all guests are boarded. The order of sites visited may vary. The amount of walking on this tour is mainly optional. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the modes of transportation with limited assistance, and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Weather appropriate clothing; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable shoes are recommended.
