Most people start their tour to Italy in Rome.   From there, they take the train down to Naples for transfer to Sorrento.  Here is my suggestion for a 5 day tour to the Amalfi Coast:  

  • Day 1:  Arrive in Sorrento via high-speed luxury train and private limo.  Check into hotel in the center of this seaside resort town.  
  • Day 2:    Visit Positano, Amalfi, and the hilltops of Ravello via private limo.   There is plenty of time to enjoy the dramatic Italian coast.  Savor a lunch  on the stunning seaside cliffs of the Amalfi Coast.
  • Day 3: It’s living life southern Italian style.  Enjoy a  in charming Sorrento or join one a programmed tours.  
  • Day 4:  Catch the hydrofoil for a wonderful day on Capri.   Hop on for a boat tour of the island to view the stunning coast and famous grottos.  There is plenty of time to enjoy a café on your own, stroll the idyllic coastal island, and return to Sorrento on your own schedule.
  • Day 5: A private tour of Pompeii followed by a delicious lunch on a mountainside winery on Mount Vesuvius called Il Cantina del Vesuvio.    Plan to arrive back  in Rome in the early evening.
