Our personal skipper will sail us along the most charming places as we admire the beautiful characteristics and landscape of Amalfi, Positano and Capri. Enjoy a lovely drink and appetizer on board and celebrate moments of absolute relaxation and fun. If the water is warm enough, you can even enjoy a swim. Upon arriving on the island, we will enjoy a delicious lunch, after that, you will have several hours on your own on to explore the island and spend the time as you wish.

Day 4 - Winery Visit

Tour & Tasting with Cooking Class on Location

Located at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius, today we visit a family winery that has been producing unique organic wines since the 1940s. During the class, we will prepare some traditional local dishes and learn the history in which these dishes came to be. We will tour the facilities and discover the scents, flavors and unique colors of this area. After a walk through the organic garden, we will select ingredients to be used in our class. During class, we can expect to prepare dishes such as ravioli caprese, parmigiana napoletana, and a delicious almond and lemon cake. All enjoyed with wine made on location.

After the class, we head back to Amalfi to enjoy some time as we please.

Day 5 - Foodie Walking Tour

Foodie Walking Tour of Sorrento + Walking Tour Visit to Positano

Be sure to have your cell phone and camera charged today, as we’re heading towards two of Italy’s most photographed locations: Sorrento and Positano. We begin with Sorrento, which will be experienced in the most delicious way. Enjoy a food-filled adventure in the historic center as we taste over a dozen local specialties including arancini (rice balls), gnocchi, buffalo mozzarella, local salumi & cheeses. For dessert, we will try Campania’s most beloved pastry, the sfogliatella. The shell-shaped pastry is a specialty of this region. Of course, it’s all washed down with vino, craft beer, limoncello and other local liquors. Meet the local artisans behind these products, all while enjoying a most scenic route.

After our delicious time in Sorrento, we head towards Positano. Easily one of the most recognized locations, the cliffside village is filled with charm, personality and character. Take in the sights of the colorful homes, the scent of the sea and the natural beauty that surrounds us.

Day 6 - Visit Ravello

Visit Ravello Villas with Lunch on Location

Today we step outside of Amalfi for part of the day and head towards the hilltop town of Ravello, famous for its stunning views of the Mediterranean, and the dramatic views below.  We will visit two of the Amalfi Coast most famous villas, Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone. Now a 5* hotel, Villa Cimbrone is the crown jewel of Ravello. Dating back to the 11th century, the gardens offer perhaps the most memorable sight in all of the coast.  Not for the faint of heart, the view is more than 1200 feet above the Mediterranean, making it a spectacular spot for pictures. The gardens of Villa Rufolo are also magical and we will also visit them during our time in Ravello.

​A late lunch will be enjoyed at a lovely wine bar in Ravello.
