What To Expect

Make your way to the centrally-located Roma Termini railway station, where you meet your guide for an early morning departure.

The first stop of the day is Positano, a fishing town-turned resort that’s a favorite for celebrity beach vacations and romantic getaways. Get your bearings in the picture-perfect village on a guided tour, then enjoy free time in Positano: browse elegant boutiques, have leather sandals custom made by a local craftsman, visit a seaside café for lunch, or slip into the water for a swim.

Meet back up with the group, then board a boat for a ride down the coast to Amalfi town, passing along one of the most spectacular sections of the coast. Keep your camera out to capture views of soaring sea cliffs, then return to shore at Amalfi. Continue to a lemon orchard that’s perched high on a cliff above Amalfi, where you sample limoncello, a sweet, tangy liqueur made with locally-grown lemons.

Following the tasting, you have time to explore the town on your own before meeting back at the boat for the cruise to Salerno. Upon arrival in Salerno, board a high-speed train for the trip back to Rome, where this full-day tour concludes at the Roma Termini railway station.


Your first stop is Positano, a small fishing town that has long been the holiday destination of choice for VIPs, from the Romantic poets of the 19th century to today’s Hollywood stars. After an orientation walk with your guide you’ll have two hours of free time in which you can browse the boutiques filled with world-famous beachwear, have leather sandals made to fit your feet and/or enjoy a relaxing lunch of local delicacies at a seaside cafe. Don’t forget to bring your swimsuit too, there’s nothing nicer on a summer’s day than a dip in the sea.

1 hour 45 minutesAdmission Ticket Free

Amalfi Coast

At Amalfi you’ll head up one of those cliffs to a lovely lemon orchard where you’ll enjoy a tasting of one of the region’s most beloved products, the sweet, tangy liqueur called limoncello. The farm is perched above the town and offers stunning views out to sea. After the tasting you’ll have an hour to explore the town and, if you enjoyed your tasting, buy some limoncello.

Traveler Tips

It’s a must do especially if you don’t plan on being in Rome long enough to go and spend a few days in Positano.
Train on time, little motor coach on time, ferries on time.
Hope Viator also offers other coastal trips on the other side of the country.

We had an awesome time on this adventure and our tour guide was the best. So informative and friendly, we would like to know his name to share with friends that are planning to take this excursion in March. Could you let us know his name.
Worth the trip!
Derek_P, Nov 2022
Excellent experience. Francesca was a lovely guide. Very friendly and organized. The trip as a whole was amazing. Very well worth the money and so easy! The train is very fast and even though it's a long day we never got tired.
Enjoyable Day Away from Rome
Pamela_S, Nov 2022
This is a busy, wonderful way to experience Positano and Amalfi! We enjoyed the limoncello tasting and the views from the terrace were spectacular. Our tour guide, Maoro, provided excellent information about the cities and was spot on for lunch recommendations. Thank you for a wonderful day!
Excellent tour well worth taking!
Deb_S, Nov 2022
It was a beautiful day! We really enjoyed seeing Positano and Amalfi and going to the limoncello tasting. Federico was a fun tour guide and the young man telling us about his family lemon farm was very interesting.
What an epic day! I can’t...
Emma_M, Oct 2022
What an epic day! I can’t say enough about how great this tour was. Federico was our guide and he was great! Very engaging and funny. It is a bit of a trek up to the limoncello farm but worth every step. I definitely recommend this tour! Grazie mille Federico!!
Perfect Day!
Kelvin_Y, Oct 2022
We had the perfect day for this trip .... Sunny, 77F, and calm water. This was one of our favorite tours of the trip. Tons of great pictures. A train ride to Salerno with a boat ride to Amalfi and another boat ride to Positano. While in Amalfi, we toured a lemon farm. Lots of stairs but worth the climb. When at the top the view is spectacular. Treated to a shot of Limoncello and lemon cake. Positano was less interesting (little more commercial than Amalfi). Had a great lunch at a restaurant, Chez Black, near the water. I wish I had brought a bathing suit but was able to wade into the clear blue water. Our guide, Francesco, was great
Not to be missed
Martin_B, Oct 2022
Lovely experience, wonderful guide (Francesca), excellent transport, all on time, beautiful Amalfi and Positano. Lemon farm was wonderful. Highly recommend!
Rome to Amalfi Memories
JoAnna_B, Oct 2022
This tour was well worth the whole day. To be able to have all the co-ordinating handled for a 12 hour trip from Rome to the Amalfi coast and back was wonderful. And our guide, John Paul was a real joy. He took such a personal interest in all of us that it really stands out in our minds. The scenery and time on the water are a lovely memory for us.
Positano with Mauro
Robert_P, Oct 2022

Amazing Amalfi
Michelle_D, Oct 2022
Boat trip along Amalfi coast line. The view from the lemon farm was amazing. The tour guide did a good job keeping the large group together. The fast train trip was great - travelling at 220+ kph.
Amalfi coast
Florence_L, Oct 2022
Great place to visit with Francesco- and a good guide Very surprised that lemon can made such great liquor
The most beautiful spots...
Gregory_M, Oct 2022
The most beautiful spots we have ever seen. The train ride was wonderful method to get to the coast but the boat rides were unbelievable. The scenery of the Coast is unbelievable. The stops in each of the towns were the highlight of our entire vacation. Maura the guide was the best. He was very informative and helpful. He even reserved a seaside table at a local restaurant.
Disappointed in Positano
Tamar_B, Oct 2022
I have been to the Amalfi coast before but have not been to Positano. I have been dreaming about visiting Positano for many years. Our guide Christiano was nice but did not offer a lot of knowledge especially in Positano. I always wanted to go to the top of the town and eat in one of those restaurants with a view. Our guide did not explain how to get up there and said I was unlikely to find a Taxi. When I saw stairs in town I thought that was the only way to get to the top. I could not climb 300 stairs and more after climbing 200 stairs to get to the Lemon Farm. Others thought that was the only way to get up as well and were walking up the stairs. Later, 2 women in my group told me they found a road behind the church and said it wasn’t difficult to walk on the road. They said there were taxis available as well. I am so disappointed that after years of dreaming about Positano I did not get to see it the way I wanted and I will probably not have a chance to return again.

Dear Tamar_B, Thanks for taking the time to write us a review. We are sorry if you felt you could not enjoy Positano the way you wanted. Positano is a cliffside small village on southern Italy's Amalfi Coast and it is easy to get around by foot. We apologize for any inconvenience caused if you were not able to walk and climb to the top. If there is anything else you would like to address with us, feel free to contact us at Our team values every feedback from our customers. Kind regards, Jhonas.
In love with Amalfi
Arielle_S, Oct 2022
Excellent trip to see the Amalfi coast, I wished we had more time in the islands to swim. Felt like we spend most of our time on a ferry or train. I would recommend it if you're going for the views and shops.
It was a great...
Robbin_S, Oct 2022

Amalfi tour
Ronda_S, Oct 2022
We were disappointed that the weather caused us not to be able to take the boat portion of our tour, but had a great time anyway.
Great tour
larcochran, Oct 2022
Our tour guide Federico was wonderful. He was knowledgeable, entertaining and a great deal of fun to interact with. The tour itself was outstanding as well, with stunning views of the coast from the ferry that we were on. Starting in Salerno, we made stops in Amalfi and Positano where we had time to browse and have lunch.
Great Tour
Gina_T, Oct 2022
The view of the coastline from the boat was absolutely beautiful. Also enjoyed the lemon farm tour. Rihann was an excellent tour guide!
Boat ride cancelled so not worth the money
Karen_G, Oct 2022
The guide and bus driver were lovely and It was a nice day. That said, it was so disappointing that we didn’t get the boat rides — especially since the weather ended up being really nice. It was a very expensive day — if it had cost less I would give more stars.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
