In the evening, we will enjoy a welcoming wine tasting at the hotel, a casual orientation walk in the city center, and a delicious welcome dinner.
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.
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!
Ready to roll up your sleeves, visit a private home, and work for your meal? Today we visit dear friends Roberta and Marida, and their dad Charlie, for a fun, hands-on cooking class at their private estate. After a welcome espresso, we roll up our sleeves and get cooking some local specialties. The menu changes based on season, but it’s sure to be delicious. While our food is cooking, we’ll visit with Charlie for a wine tasting of his famous “Charlie Wine.”
After the class, we walk off our calories in the town of Sorrento. Enjoy some time on your own to shop around and pick up a few souvenirs. Sorrento has several pedestrian-only streets that beg to be explored, all lined with shops you’ll surely want to visit.
After Sorrento, we return to Amalfi for time some time on your own.
Today we visit an iconic winery on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius. The wine, the cuisine and the area, there’s a thread that ties together the magic of this landscape at the foot of Vesuvius with its culinary traditions, and, above all, with the passion for Lacryma Christi, the wine that comes from this area.
Experience a unique blend of nature, local flavors, and the traditions of Vesuvius, starting with a walk through the vineyards to take in the scenic panorama embracing the Gulf of Naples, Sorrento, and the island of Capri. We then move on to visiting the wine cellars, where we will learn about the production methods as well as enjoy a wine tasting.
A visit to the Amalfi Coast without a stop at this iconic winery is simply not acceptable!
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.
After some time Ravello, we head towards another jewel of the coast, 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!
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.
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.
