Visiting Southern Italy? Dont Miss One of Those Amalfi Coast tours from Sorrento
If you are novice tourist whos planning a trip to Italy for the first time, the best bit of advice that old-timers would probably give is dont be too skimpy on your time. You cant see Italy in three days, so if thats the time you have, you may want to put it off for the meantime, save some more money, and plan on being there for at least five days.
When you do decide to go on that first trip, dont miss southern Italy, especially the Amalfi coast.
Amalfi Coast, locally known as the Costiera Amalfitana, is considered Italys most scenic stretch of coastline facing the Mediterranean. If youve seen pictures of brightly painted homes clinging on to cliffs, with narrow winding roads and the pristine blue water below, chances are those were taken at the Amalfi Coast.
Amazing Tours of Amafi Coast
A visit to southern Italy wouldnt be complete without a tour of the Amalfi Coast that will take you through Positano, Ravello, Sorrento, and Amalfi which happens to be the largest city along the coast. You may choose which town will be your base for your Amalfi Coast tour, but a good place to start would be from Sorrento, where day tours are available. Sorrento marks the start of the 43-mile winding coastal road that leads to Salerno.
Just so you know how lucky you are to be on an Amalfi Coast trip, this particular stretch of coastline was declared a World Heritage Site in 1997 by the UNESCO. When a place is listed as a heritage site, it goes without saying that most of the beauty you see today will be the same for many years, preserved by the combined efforts of the local inhabitants, the Italian government, and the world cultural heritage watchdog.
Tours of the Amalfi Coast from Sorrento usually start out early in the morning, so you may have to plan for breakfast along the way. There are lots of nice restaurants in Positano, your first stop, and you may have to ask your tour guide for some time extension, depending on how long it takes you to have breakfast. Or ask your guide to stop by the Buca de Bacco, where a light sweet brioche and cold cappuccino make the perfect start for your day tour.
From Positano, Amalfi Coast day tours stop by Praiano, famous for the hand-painted tiles inside St. Gennaros Church; Conca dei Marini where youll see the underwater Emerald Grotto; Amalfi itself, known for its maritime history; and finally end in Ravello with its interesting cathedral.
Seeing Italy for the first time this way will provide you with more inspiration to come back in the future to see what more this beautiful place has in store for you.
