The Amalfi Coast (Positano, Amalfi & Ravello)

Code: JAMA002


One of Joe Banana's drivers will meet you at the port of Amalfi. As you exit from the tender, he will be waiting for you holding a sign with your name on it. 


We will then take a meandering, relaxing drive uphill along a very narrow road passing several wineries and olive factories which will lead us to Ravello. This rural village completely unspoilt by tourism, is perched on top of the mountain cliff situated above Amalfi and Minori. 


Ravello, is famous for its breath-taking views, natural beauty and ancient monuments and you will wnjoy their full beauty from the stunning gardens of Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo. In high season, these gardens are rich in the heady perfume of blooming flowers, flora and the sharp, sweet scent of lemons. Ravello is also famous as THE CITY OF THE MUSIC Here Richard Wagner composed his opera Parsifal. You will have about 1 hour or more to explore the beauty of this coastal town.


After Ravello, we will drive approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes along the scenic Amalfi Coast, stopping several times to capture photos of the magnificent coastline. We will then find ourselves driving down-hill directly through Positano. We will descend down the winding one-way road, passing by many picturesque houses and shops, and arrive in the heart of the town, at “Piazza dei Mulini". This is the last point where we can get by car, so we will park and walk downtown where we will find all the streets that lead to the waterfront. Positano has beautiful things to see: the cathedral,the typical shops selling lemons, ceramics, shoes, and the typical "Positano Fashion".

Back on the main Amalfi coast road and leaving Positano the coastal road begins and runs through the fishing villages of Praiano, Furore and Conca dei Marini, and continues until it finally reaches the busy square of Amalfi (Piazza del Duomo) which is situated on the seafront.


If you would like to steep yourself in Amalfi's history there are some interesting sights to explore. Two of the most spectacular are the cathedral situated along the coast and the paper mill museum. Behind this square lies the main shopping street of Amalfi, that terminates at the furthest and highest point of the town. Along the pedestrian street are various bars and cafés, not to mention the many shops selling limoncello, casual clothing, swimwear, gifts, basic groceries, and of course, ceramics.


The driver will end the tour at the main square in Amalfi where you can either explore the area on your own or walk back to the tender pier which is directly in front of the main Amalfi square.
