Positano - Amalfi - Ravello
Starting from € 40.00
Our first stop is Positano
The charm of Positano is indescribable because of how the town is located. Set between dense Mediterranean vegetation and the long coast to be covered by car and then continue strictly on foot.
The labyrinth of narrow streets and alleys is an authentic artisan itinerary among the unmistakable shops and workshops of the famous Positano Fashion, where it is possible to buy clothes, accessories strictly sewn and hand-painted, real leather sandals created to measure. CURIOSITY
According to legend, Poseidon, the god of the sea, created Positano for the love of the Nymph Pasitea. The result of a legendary passion, today the most famous village on the Amalfi Coast is an international tourist destination.
After about an hour of free time in Positano, you will meet the driver again, to leave for Amalfi passing through other wonderful tourist pearls.
Like Praiano: famous all over the world for its wonderful landscape and its atmosphere that pervades your soul. Praiano is attached to Vettica Maggiore: a wonderful agglomeration of houses, lemon terraces and spectacular sunsets. Two villages in one, overlooking the sea: on one side the splendid view of the Torre di Conca, on the other the wonderful view of the hills of Fontanelle.
After a few curves, the most beautiful coastal road in the world takes us to the most beautiful and envied Maritime Republic.
The Amalfi coast is one of the 55 sites that Unesco has included in the World Heritage List
. A real balcony overlooking the sea, crossed by valleys and promontories, coves and cultivated terraces, represents the perfect example of a Mediterranean landscape.
Amalfi is also known worldwide for being the home of hand-made paper. Paper is still produced today, albeit on an enormously reduced scale, in the valley of the mills, where in the past there was an industrial settlement with over 15 paper mills.
Few churches in the world deserve an obligatory stop like the one we will have to include in our tour in Amalfi.
The Cathedral of Sant’Andrea
dominates the main square of Amalfi and not only in a figurative sense. It is in fact located at the bottom of a very long flight of stairs, which place it in a position overlooking the entire square.
Despite passing almost completely unnoticed, the Fountain of Sant’Andrea is a magnificent piece of art. Dedicated to the same saint as the cathedral.
At this point of the day you can take the opportunity to take a break
. It should be around lunchtime and we can opt for one of the many restaurants by the sea, to have a quick but still satisfying meal.
A seafood first course and a lemon dessert, the most authentic scent of the whole coast and in particular of Amalfi.
Coffee, limoncello for those who like it and a few minutes of rest, then ready to go.
We leave Amalfi, after about an hour of free time, we will leave the coastal road, to go up to the pearl of the Amalfi Coast: Ravello
A center of historical, artistic, architectural, monumental treasures, and home of the Ravello International Festival which has been organized by the provincial tourism body of Salerno for over sixty years.
The historic center of Ravello sometimes recalls the villages of Provence. It is full of ateliers and galleries that evoke southern France, especially the hamlets of Vence and Saint-Paul-de-Vence. On Via Wagner, then, adjacent to Piazza Duomo, you go up between walls with exposed stone and bougainvillea trees that smell of holidays with a Mediterranean flavor.
Piazza Duomo, can be considered a bit the lung of the town, where visitors literally stop to breathe.
The tour will end with Ravello’s favorite jewel: Villa Rufolo which is a prestigious building located in the historic center of Ravello.
It preserves centuries of history of the Amalfi Republic, contains its works of art and legends.
The Villa is very famous and hosts, among other events, the Ravello Music Festival which sees artists of world caliber arrive on the Amalfi Coast every year. Among the most characteristic and fascinating elements of Villa Rufolo
, the cloister and gardens must certainly be mentioned, which make this villa a place to visit at least once in a lifetime.
For many visitors the terraced gardens, and the magnificent view offered, are the highlight of Villa Rufolo, but before exploring the gardens, take some time to enjoy the stone and brick arches that precede them.
After an hour of free time in Ravello, the third and last stop, we will say goodbye to the Amalfi Coast. We will continue to climb the Lattari mountains to reach the Chiunzi Pass. The last breathtaking view will suddenly appear: the Gulf of Naples, Ischia, Procida, Vesuvius and the countryside of Nocerino Sarnese.

Customers say about us
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.
I learnt about PierPaolo via a friend who had used his services a few years ago. So I needed a reliable, honest, and reasonable transportations in Amalfi areas for a week for our family including 4 kids ranging from 2-8 yo. PierPaolo, his dad and younger brother are exceptional. They are so reliable, honest, thorough, hard working, great communicating , super friendly, helpful, flexible, etc... They waited in their cars while we dined, they made reservations for us and even used his credit card, made stops for us taking pics, etc. They went beyond to make our travels much easier, especially with young kids and accommodated date our plans. On the top of their best services, PierPaolo didn't even charge extra when our family of 3 friends tagged along for excursion and ride to the airport which resulted they had to use bigger bus to accommodate our size along the way.
His services is one of our highlights of our Amalfi. I wished to live close to them so that we would become good friends, not that we weren't now.
Any way, I can't talk enough about how great they are and am humble for their best efforts and services for us.
We was pick up by Paolo and his brother at the train station from Rome to Naples and drive to the villa that we booked for one week in Positano. Paolo and his Family has driven us the whole time we were there. They are always on time, very polite, very personable, very attentive that make your experience of the trip are so wonderful that you want to come back Positano again. I would recommend their service to anyone that planning a trip to Positano in the near future.
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.
