Make your way to the train station in Rome to board your high-speed train to Naples. Sit back and relax as you enjoy your scenic ride out of the city, arriving in Naples. After meeting your professional driver upon arrival, settle inside your comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and head out onto the winding Amalfi Coast Road. With more than 40 miles of sweepings views of the glistening Mediterranean Sea to one side of your minivan and charming pastel villas and lemon groves to the other, marvel at the stunning vistas and listen to the onboard commentary as you travel. Your first stop of the trip is Positano. Draw a breath of disbelief as you approach the small fishing village that is often referred to as the ‘Jewel of the Amalfi Coast.’ One of the most quintessential towns on the coast, Positano is built up against the mountainside and spills down toward the sea to the rocky shore below. Enjoy your time here at your leisure, perhaps wandering along its narrow pathways that are lined with charming shops, or head to one of the village’s beaches and cool off with a refreshing dip in the turquoise Mediterranean Sea. After exploring Positano, return to your minivan and continue to Amalfi, the town that the coastline owes its name to. Enjoy the postcard-perfect views and spend a few minutes taking photos before heading off to discover the town at your leisure. Admire the traditional Mediterranean architecture as you stroll along the streets, and perhaps visit the magnificent 9th-century Amalfi Cathedral that is situated in the main square (own expense). After your time in Amalfi, return to your minivan at the prearranged time before your train journey back to Rome by high speed train from Naples. Your tour concludes in central Rome in the evening.
