Day 5: Sorrento/Ravello/Amalfi/Positano

After breakfast, meet your program manager for your full day excursion of the Amalfi Coast. Also known as the Costiera Amalfitana, the Amalfi Coast is a stretch of coastline on the southern side of the Sorrentine Peninsula extending from Positano in the west to Vietri sul Mare in the east. You will visit Ravello – the dramatic hillside town, famous for its Villa Rufolo, which was originally used as a watchtower when it was built in 1200 AD. Due to its high altitude, Villa Rufolo is a great tourist destination offering breathtaking views and beautiful gardens. After descending from the villa, you will continue to Amalfi and its historic center. You may want to enjoy Sant’Andrea Cathedral, the Cloister of Paradise and even some shopping. Stroll through the streets and the large square, or piazzetta, lined with orange and lime trees. Try the local pastries and espresso Napoletano, or perhaps sample one of the many flavors of gelato. The tour will continue to Positano, which, according to local legend, was founded by a group from the ancient Greek city of Paestum who fled there to avoid the attacks of the Saracens. Positano is located in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Amalfi peninsula. At the center of town you can see the brightly colored maiolica, or the Renaissance tin-glazed pottery dome of Santa Maria Assunta, the main church of Positano.
