The Amalfi drive is said to be the most spectacular in Europe, and from Sorrento the winding cliff tops offer continuous breathtaking views. Departure in the morning with a comfortable air conditioned coach along the Amalfi Coast. The first stop will be above Positano, one of the jewels of this coastline, built on different levels from the main road down to sea like a “waterfall cascading down the rocks”. Further along the coast, the coach makes a refreshment stop where you can admire the local ceramics in a traditional shop and enjoy beautiful views before going on towards the town of Amalfi. Once a thriving Marittime Republic along with Genoa, Pisa and Venice and now a thriving holiday resort. This ancient town is dominated by the magnificent 9th century Cathedral where the remains of the Patron Saint of Amalfi are preserved. Free time to explore the cobbled backstreets of Amalfi, before continuing to the medieval town of Ravello, which nestles in the mountainside eleven hundred feet above the sea level and where you can enjoy the best views of the Amalfi coastline overlooking Minori, Maiori and beyond. This charming little town has a main square where the centrepiece is the bright picturesque 11th century Cathedral. Free time at disposal with the option to visit Villa Rufolo with its gardens and amazing views across the bay of Salerno.
