Tour description

Experience the breathtaking Amalfi Coast in the classic Italian way – by Vespa! This private tour from Naples takes you on an invigorating ride along southern Italy’s dramatic UNESCO World Heritage-listed coastline aboard a vintage Vespa scooter driven by an expert guide, who’ll show you the scenic towns of Sorrento, Positano, Amalfi. Soak up the majestic landscape and charming atmosphere as you visit whitewashed villas and fortified palaces, wander splendid gardens and medieval cobblestone streets, and take postcard-worthy photos of cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean.

You’ll be picked up from your Naples hotel in the morning and taken by car to Sorrento, where your Vespa tour starts. Strap on your helmet, hop on the back of a vintage Piaggio Vespa, and let your expert guide take you on a scenic, invigorating ride along the breathtaking Amalfi Coast, stretching 31 miles (50 km) along the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula.First, spend some time exploring the small town of Sorrento, a popular tourist destination overlooking the Bay of Naples with Naples, Capri and Mt Vesuvius in the distance. Then travel along the characteristic curves of the coastline while taking in incredible views. You’ll stop in several coastal towns to explore by foot, sightsee, take photos and enjoy free time to wander at your leisure. Make your way to Positano, perhaps the coast's most photogenic town, with steeply stacked houses cascading down to the sea. On your visit here, you'll begin to understand why famous author John Steinbeck described Positano as "...a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.”Stop for coffee and cake (included) about an hour into your tour before continuing along the coast to the town of Amalfi, once the capital of the maritime republic of Duchy of Amalfi, an important trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and 1200.Around 1:30pm you’ll head to nearby Pogerola for a classic Italian lunch at a local restaurant (own expense). You’ll also visit the Emerald Grotto, a cave located in Cape Conca that’s flooded with a brilliant blue or emerald light. Your Vespa ride ends back in Sorrento, where you’ll then transfer back to Naples by car, arriving in the evening. You’ll be given a handmade, local artisan gift as a souvenir to remember your Amalfi Coast Vespa tour forever!
