1. Amalfi Coast
Though the entire European rim of the Mediterranean is gorgeous, the Amalfi Coast, with dramatic mountains and white sand beaches, is really something special.
2. Amalfi Cathedral
A central landmark in Amalfi, the Amalfi Cathedral dates all the way back to the 9th century and features a fascinating mix of architectural influences.
3. La Trinita della Cava
Located in a river gorge, this impressive Benedictine monastery contains an archive of ancient documents dating back to the 8th century.

5. Duomo di Salerno
The Duomo di Salerno, a cathedral built in 1048, is one of the most famous landmarks in Amalfi. The building is dedicated to Matthew the Apostle, whose tomb is found inside.
6. Villa Rufolo
Villa Rufolo features impressive local architecture, but it's the gardens that make this place a must-visit. If you're lucky you can catch a Classical music concert on the terrace.

What people are saying about Amalfi
Picked up spot on time from the meeting point. An excellent guide who was really knowledgeable. Unfortunately due to a fire the coast road between Positano and Amalfi was closed so the tour operator arranged for us to go by boat along the coast which was an unexpected bonus. We had sufficient free time in Positano, Amalfi and Ravello to do all that we wanted to do. Found there was plenty of excellent small restaurants in Amalfi for lunch and the guide directed us to an area that was just off the main square with the consequent reduction in prices. The Cathedral in Amalfi is a must see. After Ravello we returned to Sorrento via a quiet country route so we saw more of the local environment - another bonus!
We had a fantastic day from start to finish. Joseph, our kind collected us bright and early from our hotel alongside driver Roberto. We were then taken to Pompeii for an amazing private tour with local guide Antonio. All three were nothing but amazing, knowledge, and laughs from Joseph and Antonio and super safe driving from Roberto. Our stop in Positano was one I'll will remember dearly, this has to be one of the most beautiful areas in the world. Thank you all
Due a fire on the road the tour was changed , but we where informed when we left . Beautiful views over the Amalfi coast & really good guide with Mariagela. We got the right information & she was really taking care of us. Also the driver Mario was a friendly guy & good driver felt save during the trip. & only 8 people in the car , perfect !
GIORNATA PERFETTA!!! Macchina pulita, l'autista Rosario è stato gentile e disponibile. Tutti gli orari sono stati rispettati e siamo riusciti a vedere Sorrento, Positano,Amalfi e Ravello. Inoltre, ci siamo fermati a pranzare in un posticino vista mare.
The Guide (Teresa) was amazing, very happy and ready to answer our questions and with great explanations about the places we were! The Driver was very careful and excellent the whole way! Totally recommend a tour with both of then! Amazing experience!
