City Tours Amalfi Coast

A private guided tour of Paestum is suggested.

Paestum Greek Temples

Paestum was at one point a great ancient Greek city until it was conquered by the Romans. It was eventually abandoned due to the high volume of malaria in the area but the city has since regained a very historical importance for the archeological site and temple which is still standing there today.

The three Dorcic temples are central to this spectacular scene and they are widely known to be the best preserved of any temple outside of Greece itself. Aside from these magnificent buildings there is also a large Forum, an Amphitheatre and several remains of housing from the period.

However, one of the best things about taking a trip to Paestum with a private driver is in the fact that the town is located far away from the usual tourist trail which allows you to explore this fascinating place without the crowds you often find in Florence, Rome or another popular destinations. The quality an length on these tours depends on your preference: there is an excellent Limo tour of Paestum for those you prefer a bit more luxury and you can also see the temples on a Paestum shore excursion.


Buffalo Mozzarella Cheese Factory Experience

Mozzarella Cheese Factory Mozzarella Cheese Factory Buffalo mozzarella (Italian: mozzarella di bufala)

A great way to spend the rest of a day following the temples of course, is to visit a farm in Paestrum. The surrounding areas have long been known for producing the buffalo mozzarella which is obviously the delightful milky ingredient found in the base of the famous Italian pizza. With the assistance of your private guide, it is possible to take a short cheese tour in one of the farms and this insight into the local life in Paestrum is sure to cap of a highly memorable day tour of temples and mozzarella cheese.

Amalfi - Ravello – Scala – Sorrento – Positano

The Amalfi coast has it all, lush countryside, beautiful hillsides, perfect weather and scenery straight out of a fairytale. The food will put a smile on your face, the locals make you feel welcome, the weather will give you a warm feeling and the wine will make you fall in love – The Amalfi Coast has is all.

The Amalfi Coast Here is a list of the main towns to visit on the Amalfi Coast:

Amalfi

Amalfi is the main town which draws the crowds on the Coast and so naturally, it is not the peaceful retereat that many people seek out on a trip in these parts. However, it is steeoed in history and if you don't mind shring the space with other tourists, the architecture, food and fun holiday atmosphere make this a great place to stay on the Amalfi Coast.

Ravello

Ravello is one of the most peaceful towns you can stay in on a tour of the Amalfi Coast, it is situated in an ideal location with spectacular views and a very personal feel to the town. It is not on the water so if you were expeting to go for a swim, this would not be the place.

Positano

One of the busier towns in the evening, Positano has a great nightlife to cap off a relaxing day spent walking around the small streets in town. The centre of this town is at the very bottom of a very steep mountainside and the line of restaurants along the oceans edge make for a beuatiful setting at dinner time.

Cetara

Another town with a local feel to it, Cetara is a favorite for holidaymakers with a great reputation for having fantastic food, and of course some wine to wash it down. If you want to experience some culture and watch locals go about their daily business, this is a good option.

Sant'Agata and Nerano

As with Amalfi town, you will find yourself right at the very centre of the coast and Sant' Agata is a great opportuny for anyone who enjoys swimming. The food is particularly here so prepare for an overload of taste.

Minori & Maiori

Maiori is very much a quieter town on the Coast with a very nice beach and good selection of restaurants. There is little going on here after dark so expect either an early night, or a relaxing evening. The Amalfi Coast has something for everyone but as with most places in Italy which require transport and prganisation, it's always best to take a tour or a privat driver. Not only will it save you time and make it convenient, but it will hel you discover all the secrets you would otherwise never have known, and the Amalfi Cost is somewhere that has lots of secrets.

The Sorrento Peninsula is situated in the very south of Italy which is best known to tourists eager to visit the Amalfi coast.

Thousands of visitors take private tours on the Amalfi coast each year and the popularity of the site eventually led to it becoming a Unesco World Heritage site some years ago. This new standing is much to do with the cultural importance of the area and when you join a private driver on a trip to the Amalfi Coast, you quickly learn about all the reasons why this is the case.

Tour in Amalfi Coast

A cool Winter follows the Summer but as long as you take a tour in these parts during the latter of these seasons, you are guaranteed to see all the beautiful towns in their full glow, along with all the farming and agricultural regions in between.

Tourism is the main income in each of the towns, meaning there are always fine places to stop along the way, be it for photograph's, coffee or something to eat. This much may be expected, but nothing can prepare for the moment when you first set eyes on the scenery along this stretch of the Mediterranean; it is simply stunning.

Private Tour in Amalfi Coast

Taking a tour with a private driver on the Amalfi Coast is usually the best way to check it out; the winding roads will mesmerize, the people will welcome and the sight of these fairytale-like villages perched high on the cliff tops will be something you never forget.

Places to see in Amalfi Coast: Amalfi - Ravello – Scala –Sorrento – Positano.

Private Tour in Ravello

Italiano Limousine English Speaking Driver will meet you at your Hotel/Villa to start a wonderful personalized experience, you’ve already visited the Amalfi Coast you might just take this relax short tour to be enchanted through his beautiful gardens.

While it is a very popular small town in it's own right, a day tour to Ravello is a great way of seeing a local piece of rural Italy along with some exquisite countryside in Italy and a typical small town dramatically situated on a cliff side.

Ravello Tour Private Driver

It is often referred to as the most charming town whens tourists visit the Amalfi coast and with good reason. Ravello feels a little more cut off from the rest of the world and this is in no small way due to the precarious nature at which is lies so high up.

It makes for dramatic scenery but the town is small, ideal for walking and although the paths which lead down to the coast are very steep, they make a nice hike for those who have the energy. Ravello is quiet, the streets have many nice little restaurants and dainty shops while the main square becomes a frantic mix of school children and resting locals in the afternoon.

If you are taking any private tours in Italy and want to see somewhere a little less busy with tourists, Ravello is a nice option and the fact that you don't need to travel so far means a lot more time to explore the actual destination. The drive is scenic on the way up but many will not fancy having to do the driving themselves and if you would prefer to avoid the inconvenience of taking the local buses, a private driver is likely to be the best way to visit Ravello.

What to see in Ravello: Villa Rufolo, Villa Cimbrone and the Cathedral.

Italiano Limousine Personal Driver will meet you at your Hotel/Villa to start a wonderful personalized experience If this is your first time on the Amalfi Coast get ready because Positano is probably the most pictoresque town of the globe.

On the Amalfi coast you will find Positano, one of the most picturesque and beautiful little fishing villages in all of Italy. The setting of this colorful town high up on the mountain makes for some mesmerizing scenery and the winding coastal drive which takes you all the way up there is a genuinely memorable experience.

positano

There are many towns along the Amalfi coast which require a minimum of one full day to explore but it's actually possible to see Positano in half a day or even on a private shore excursion. Your private driver will take you directly to the town to save time but as with most private tours in Italy there are always some opportunities to stop for photographs en route to the destination.

Once there, it's easy to see why this is one of the best places to visit on the Amalfi coast. The town is perched up high on the side of a cliff and houses of many different colors appear to be stacked on top of each other as they drop vertically toward the sea and centre of town below.

positano

Positano is a nicely quiet village and the surrounding streets are for pedestrian's only leaving you free to walk peacefully around a little maze of shops and cafe's which trail around the main focal point of the town, Piazza Mulino. Finally once you have walked down through the centre of town you will reach the oceanfront where the many restaurants or bars offer a great way to end your luxury tour on the Amalfi Coast.

Almost anywhere on the Mediterranean is a great place to spend time but location, size and the fact that everything is so close together, make it possible and highly recommended to take a half day tour to Positano.
