MORE DEPARTURES If you wish to visit the Amalfi coast from October to March, we run our 3D AMALFI COAST WINTER tour.   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!                                                                                                      Read more

They were so knowledgable and funny and we loved spending the few days on the tour with them. Everything was so well done and professional. We got to see so much in a short time and for a very good price. This was the best tour we found in Italy and Sasa and Alex made it even better! The hostel they set us up in was one of the nicest I've ever stayed in. The transportation with either the bus or the train was very efficient, nice, and fun!!   read more
