In the evening, we will enjoy a casual orientation walk in the city center, and a delicious welcome dinner with lots of wine. 

Day 2 - Cooking Class Under the Lemon Groves

When life gives you lemons, make Limoncello Tiramisu! Today is dedicated to Amalfi and its prized fruit, the lemons. We will enjoy a unique guided walk through the lemon groves with one of Amalfi’s most beloved local farmers. The adventure begins with a lesson on limoncello-making and sampling a specialty cake local only to this area. After a delicious lemony snack, we will tour the surroundings and get an overview of where the lemons grow and why the Amalfi environment helps them thrive. After, we will roll up our sleeves and get cooking under the most scenic location. We will prepare a multi-course lunch utilizing only local ingredients. After all the work, we will get to enjoy the fruits of our labor with a delicious late lunch, in an environment unlike you have never seen before. Relax and enjoy the area, or walk off those lunch calories while snapping some Facebook-worthy pictures.

After our late lunch, you will have time to explore Amalfi on your own.

Day 3 - Private Boat Ride and Day Trip to the Island of Capri

Ready to visit one of the most adored islands in Italy? Than welcome to Capri! Today, we will sail along the coast on our privately-chartered, fully equipped boat, where we will enjoy a truly magical experience. 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. Shop for some of their famous sandals, sightsee, or simply enjoy a gelato and people-watch in one of the most entertaining locations in Italy.

On the way back to Amalfi, weather permitting, we will stop at the famous Blue Grotto!

Day 4 - Cooking Class in Furore

Ready to roll up your sleeves and work for your meal? My suggestion is to have a light breakfast today!
Today we head to Furore for our second cooking class. The cooking class is carried out in an open space kitchen with sea view. We will enjoy a unique gastronomic experience with Chef Vito. At arrival our gracious hosts will show us their biological garden while you enjoy welcome appetizers and some Prosecco. Along with Chef Vito, you’ll prepare the starter with vegetables, homemade pasta and much more. At the end of the lesson we will enjoy all the dishes prepared, accompanied with a local wine, of course.

We will return to Amalfi after our class for some shopping time, or time to swim in the Mediterranean.

Day 5 - Visit to Positano

Positively Positano! Adored by the stars, and famous for its shops, Positano is waiting for you to discover it. Do some shopping, or grab a gelato or glass of chilled Prosecco and do what Italians do best, people-watch and comment on the fashion!

We will arrive by private van transfer, but do what the locals do for our return to Amalfi, hop on the fun traghetto, the local water shuttle that will have us back to Amalfi before you know it! And enjoy amazing views along the way. 

Day 6 - Guided Visit to Ravello with Lunch on Local Winery

Today we visit the breathtaking “terrace of infinity. 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 on location as a group. 

Day 7 - Leisure Day

Today, you will have the day to enjoy as you please. Enjoy the beaches in Amalfi, walk the neighboring towns, take the ferry to Ischia, or perhaps make plans to visit Pompei, or simply spend some time locally and purchase some local artisanal souvenirs. Whatever you decide to do is up to you.

In the evening, we will enjoy a final celebration dinner.

Day 8 - Arrivederci Amalfi

All great things must come to an end. The week is sadly winding down and today, after our delicious last breakfast at the hotel, we will say good-bye to our new friends and our friendly hotel staff and check out.
