Positano & Amalfi
Duration: 4 hours
Tour Code: AML-003
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.
