Starting from € 49.00
Start your tour with the professionalism of the driver who will wait for you at the point agreed with Mercedes and all the safety and quality that Imperial Car Service offers.Along the way you will enjoy incredible views of the sea, you will travel along breathtaking panoramic roads.
Along the stretch of coast that goes from Positano to Vietri sul Mare is Ravello, a Campania town that you will fall in love with at first glance, a coastal town characterized by houses set in the rock, churches with medieval charm, golden sand coves and villas. unique gardens in the world, such as Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone.Ravello
, known as the city of music and poetry, has enchanted writers and artists of all ages including Boccaccio, Turner and many others.
The visit to the city of Ravello presupposes above all a visit to its 2 famous villas: villa Rufolo and villa Cimbrone. The images of these two villas have certainly gone around the world, but being able to admire them live is truly splendid.
Choosing which one to visit is really difficult.
The best known is certainly Villa Rufolo, which has become famous throughout the world for being the setting for the music festival dedicated to Wagner. The charm of the villa are certainly the splendid flower gardens from which it is possible to admire a splendid panorama of the Amalfi coast below.
After seeing "paradise" with our own eyes, it is time to reach the land of colors, of sirens, city of gardens: there are so many definitions attributed to Sorrento
, home of the great Torquato Tasso.
The "rhythm" of Sorrento, the beating heart of the city. Bars, restaurants, shops and lots and lots of people practically all year round.
Five-star panorama for the Villa Comunale in Sorrento, a stone’s throw from Piazza Tasso. Small, tidy, cozy, with a breathtaking sea view and the exclusive possibility of reaching Marina Piccola.
Practically attached to the Villa Comunale, the Cloister of San Francesco is a must in Sorrento.
Arcades of crossed tuff arches that alternate with round arches in turn resting on columns surmounted by capitals. A mix of styles that does not leave you indifferent and which, above all, gives the cloister a solemn and mystical atmosphere.
Not to be missed is the charm of the Vallone dei Mulini, the British and Americans call it "Deep Valley of the Mills". It is a natural riverbed that once reached the sea where, in the 17th century, the Correale family built a mill for grinding wheat.
During the tour a break
is a must !!
The main dish of local gastronomy is the gnocchi alla sorrentina.
It is one of the most famous dishes in the world, an emblem of Mediterranean cuisine and made in Italy. To leave Sorrento you must have tasted the famous limoncello. Between artisan factories and shops of typical products. It is impossible to escape whether it is to taste a glass (excellent as a digestive after lunch or dinner) or to buy a bottle to keep at home, or to give to relatives and friends.
Our last stop is the icing on the cake.Positano
is an ancient seaside village, which has become one of the most elegant and well-known climatic resorts of the Amalfi Coast, which rises in a wonderful and suggestive panoramic position along one of the most beautiful coastal stretches of the Sorrento peninsula.
With the characteristic physiognomy of a nativity scene: small white houses leaning against each other and suspended between the sea and the sky, of oasis of oriental palm trees, of scrub and citrus groves in the characteristic terraces, almost defying the force of gravity; and then the cobalt blue sea that always manages to renew itself by inventing new embroideries between overhanging rocks that merge with dark and very fine beaches.
Positano is the ideal place to indulge in the dolce vita, in a dream landscape made of wild nature where Mediterranean houses and enchanting residences cling to which the fascinating domes stand out, such as the beautiful colored majolica of the church of Santa Maria Assunta, patron saint of the city .
Shopping in Positano is a real experience. Positano fashion is now very famous all over the world.
Strolling through the picturesque streets and stairways of Positano you will be captivated by the colors and beauty of its boutiques, where you can also find major international brands and typical handicrafts of the Amalfi Coast such as food and wine and ceramics.

Customers say about us
Paulo was recommended to us by friends in our community. We now join the chorus of people, some of them our friends, who deservedly have posted rave reviews of Paolo. My wife and I took an amazing 10 trip to the Amalfi coast (3 days in Sorrento and Capri, 3 days in Positano and 4 days in Ravello). Paolo helped us get back and forth from the airport and from one hotel to another. We also spent a whole day with Paolo visiting the small quaint villages between Ravello and Salerno. While planning the trip in the US, I was in constant email contact with Paolo, getting ideas and feedback from Paolo every step of the way. Paolo was amazingly informative, courteous, helpful and generous of his time for an unpaid service. I always got the feeling from Paolo that he was proud of this little strip of heaven called the Amalfi coast and that his mission/motivation was to share it with the rest of us. His enthusiasm is contagious and we grew to love the food, the culture and the people of this amazing region.
My wife and I always felt that Paolo was taking care of us and his sole goal was to maximize our experience in Amalfi. Paolo gave us insights and information about what it is like to be a local which we always enjoyed. He was entertaining but always intuitively knew when to give us our own space. Paolo was always flexible with our itinerary and willing to add/delete something as requested.
Paolo took us on a full day trip to the tiny little villages between Ravello and Salerno including Minori, Maiori, Cetara and Vietre Sul Mare. We wanted to experience the real Amalfi, beyond the tourist traps, where the locals live.
Paolo completely customized the tour. Paolo took us to some shops in Maiori that were off the beaten path and he took us to an amazing thousand-year old castle on a mountain top in Minori. We ate the fresh figs, grapes and carob off the trees as we walked through the gardens of the remote castle. Amazing experience that is not at all touristy. During the 2 hours we were there, we saw only 2 other couples. He took us to a plaque in Cetara which memorializes the Jews of this town who were forced to leave their homes during the holocaust (nobody knows about this plaque). We shared a lunch of fresh salads, fried anchovies and pasta with Paolo in Cetara. Paolo took pictures of us as we walked on the the deserted beach in Vietre Sul Mare at sunset.
We can't say enough about Paolo. He was amazing and helped make this trip truly spectacular.
Two of my co-workers had already used Imperial Car Service and I see why they raved about this service! They are all top notch customer-focused people. The owner, Michele, provides excellent recommendations on how to plan a great day and allows ample time in the plan to enjoy the sights or restaurants. He will even coordinate tour guides or make dinner reservations. And the drivers are a JOY to ride with.
Safe and professional driving (a LOT to expect in Italy!!) and friendly, fun conversation as you go. Both Paolo and Vincenzo drove us on our trip, and they are two new friends now! These guys are consummate professionals, but add a Napolitano flavor to the day that made it SO fun! We used them for 3 different trips during the week and it was relaxing to know they would be there, on time, to take care of us since this was our first trip to Italy. We will use them every time!
This was one of the best days we had during our two weeks in Italy . Paulo was our driver for several days and was amazing .
He was accommodating , flexible and friendly.
When we got off at wrong traini station in Naples.. no problem .. Paulo came and got us !
His love of the Amalfi Coast is evident and you experience that when your travel with this tour. He is an excellent driver and we felt safe. His restaurant recommendations were the best! We can’t wait to return !
A friend in Boston told us to ask Imperial for Paolo as our driver, and we are so happy we did. He is truly a delight -- such a warm and knowledgeable and fun person.
He did everything he could to make the tours special for me and my family.
Without him, we would have missed the family run farms and wineries.
Thanks to him, we got to see the most beautiful areas of the Amalfi Coast, appreciating them even more with his explanations and guidance.
His driving, his professionalism and his English were all top notch, but mostly we will remember his wonderful company and the enjoyment we all took being together on our visit to beautiful Italy.
