What people say about this tour 

“The Amalfi Coast tour is amazing”

I did the four day tour of the Amalfi Coast with Italy on a Budget Tours and absolutely loved the experience. The group was made up of people of the same age who were all travelling, so we were able to get along really well and swap stories about travels.

Irene was a fantastic guide from the very start. She was bright and happy and enthusiastic throughout the trip. She knows a lot of the locals around the coast so travelling was made easy and hassle free. The schedule was still flexible enough for us to spend our own time at the different towns and do your own thing at night.

I've travelled independently many times before, but I don't think I could have seen or experienced as much by myself. And it was made all so much better by Irene's enthusiasm and knowledge of the area.

Really great value for money and a must do if you want to travel this region!

Day 1: Naples to Sorrento - Visit of Pompeii

Meet your Italy on a Budget tour leader and start your adventure by private bus/minivan* towards the South of Italy. Mingle with the other travelers and start getting excited about the sites, the delicious food and wonderful landscape which will be part of the 4 day Amalfi coast tour.

After less than 1h ride we will reach our first stop Pompeii, destroyed and buried under 4 to 6m of ashes and pumice in the eruption of the Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 but still preserved throughout all these centuries. During the journey your IOAT tour leader will provide you with the info about the area, the site, the Romans and how they used to live and finally facts about the culture that only a local guide would know. In Pompeii you will have two hours of free time to explore the ruins at your own peace and refresh with some lemon granita or wood fired pizza at the end before continuing the trip towards Sorrento.

Check in at the campsite, rest some time, check out the facilities and jump into the sea from the private beach before you meet back with your guide to head down to Sorrento for an orientation walk around the town center pointing out the local products and the best places to eat. 

In the evening you spend time on your own or join us to a local restaurant for a delicious 4 course dinner and to a club later on for some drinks.

Day 2: Boat tour to Capri island

What a perfect way to start the day with a boat trip to Capri island. Our boat tour will depart from the campsite in the morning. During our trip to Capri you will be enchanted by the magnificent bay of Sorrento, the beautiful coast line and the blue Gulf of Naples. 

In Capri you will have time to discover the island in complete freedom by public bus; visit Anacapri, where you can take the chairlift up to the top of Mt. Solaro for a breathtaking 360 degree view of the island, visit the Blue Grotto with fantastic crystal blue colours, explore Capri town and finally relax on the beach. You can also book with your Italy on a Budget guide our private shuttle bus to tour the island in the most comfortable and easy way. 

We will board the boat again in the afternoon to return to the camping village but not before touring around the island of Capri to admire the Grotta Verde (Green Grotto), Punta Carena, (the furthest point of the island) and all the amazing natural beauties. Back to the camping village in the late afternoon.

In the evening spend time on your own or join your guide at the restaurant of the campsite for some drinks and an optional dinner for an easy and relaxing night.

Day 3: Day tour to Amalfi coast - Amalfi and Positano

Our third day is all for the Amalfi coast and its wonders. The panorama from the narrow and windy road of the Amalfi coast will be terrific. During the journey to Amalfi, we will pass by the Islands of Galli, the fishing villages of Furore and Praiano, famous for its crystal-clear seas, the encompassing views and its cathedral located 365m above the sea level. 

We will stop in the town of Amalfi for about 2h to allow you to discover the town at your own peace and its famous cathedral, lie down at the beach and have a bite on one of the typical shop selling fresh local food. We will board again after lunch for the splendid town of Positano with its cascade of colourful houses, clinging magically to earth. Its pastel buildings form a vertical wonderland. Narrow, threadlike streets provide boutiques, cafes, restaurants and bars. In Positano we will stay 3h to allow you to relax on the beach, go for a swim and discover this little gem of the Amalfi coast. We will return back our campsite at approx 6:00 pm.

Our last evening in Sorrento spend time on your own or join your guide at a restaurant in Sorrento for the best pizza of the Amalfi coast and later for some drinks.

Day 4: Sorrento to Naples – Tour of Naples

It’s time to say goodbye to the wonderful Amalfi coast to return back to Naples. You can’t leave the South of Italy without taking at least a small peek at Naples, home of the Italian pizza and Italian customs. We will stop 4h in one of the areas of Naples famous for its shopping and monuments. Your guide will take you for an orientation walk and will show you the places of interests; San Carlo theatre, Plebiscito square, Umberto I 's gallery and where to get the most delicious hezelnut coffee. You will be than free to walk around the city with our handy Italy on a Budget maps and stop for lunch in a traditional pizzeria to finally taste the best Neapolitan pizza!
