The Amalfi Coast is glamorous islands, glimmering sea and celeb spotting. It's the keel-over kind of beautiful fairy tales are made of; heaven for the senses with knock-out views, fabulous food, fascinating history, gorgeous waters and quaint towns. A rarest of rare place that truly lives up to its legendary reputation.
Enjoy a private boat tour to visit where "The Talented Mr Ripley" was filmed; an outdoor cooking class in a citrus grove, many a delectable meal, incredible wine and, of course, all the panorama your heart can stand.
Spend your days perched on the 'peninsula Sorrentina' in the stunning cliff-town of Sorrento. A perfect base for sightseeing, the town has plenty to offer: restaurants, nightlife and endless views. The town's festive atmosphere is authentic and local despite its world-renowned fame. During the week you'll make use of the excellent ferry services that connect Sorrento to all the dreamy nearby hotspots: Positano, Capri and more.
You'll have the option of staying at one of Sorrento's charming, four-star hotels located within close walking distance to the historical city center as well as the crystalline waters of the Mediterranean. Because Sorrento is perched on a cliff, there are no 'beaches' per se but swimming areas are accessible by stairs. (Lots of stairs!) But for those of you who want to cool off closer to 'home', the hotel will have a swimming pool. There's also wifi, a rooftop bar with sweeping views across the Bay of Naples and a fantastic Italian breakfast buffet.
EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES
Hop on a ferry from Sorrento and head to the storied terraced town of Positano. There, you'll have plenty of free time to explore, shop, swim, eat and drink... You'll definitely get your stair count in as the entire town is completely made of stairs!
Head up to the highest point of Anacapri to get the best views of the island before roaming the island's many paths leading to incredible vistas. Shop the designer shops or sit in the main piazza and people watch where it's not unlikely you'll spot some celebs. Capri also has private boat tours -- you can visit the famous 'faraglioni' rocks or see the blue grotto. The island also has a few beaches if you feel like taking a dip in its blue, cool waters.
DAY TRIP ON PRIVATE GOZZO BOAT
You'll have our own private boat and skipper at our disposal for an all-day outing. Visit the nearby island for lunch (where "The Talented Mr Ripley" was filmed) and stop for a swim on the way back to Sorrento.
COOKING CLASS IN A CITRUS GROVE
What trip to Italy would be complete without a cooking class?
This cooking class is outdoors, of course, and where else but under the lemon groves? Learn to make local specialties like 'gnocchi alla Sorrentina', sip bubbles while you're at it and eat what you've cooked on a terrace overlooking the gobsmackingly gorgeous view of the Mediterranean.
