Let’s make Italy: The Amalfi Coast a LivList experience and set out to explore one of Italy’s most stunning regions―the Sorrentine Peninsula―where we’ll be treated with spectacular views around every turn. Along the way we’ll visit the coastal villages of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello and stop for an Italian lunch in the hillside town of Conca dei Marini, overlooking the sea. While here, we’ll see the natural sea cave known as the Grotta dello Smeraldo, known for its unique emerald glow. And we’ll see the town of Ravello, considered by many to be the capital of Italy’s classical music scene.
Once in Positano we depart from the Positano port.and relax as we take off along the water, passing white sand beaches, dramatic cliffs and scenic fishing villages. Travel through the sparkling waters of Conca dei Marini and stop at the Emerald Grotto, a famous sea cave where stalactites hang from the ceiling, stalagmites sprout from the cave floor and the waters give off a rare green hue. Glide by the whitewashed houses of Praiano, a fishing village set into the cliffs. Continue past the Furore fjord, turning into a narrow cove not accessible by land. Pause for a refreshing swim inside the hidden caves and dip into a cascade of fresh spring water.
Return and dock in Amalfi to spend a few hours exploring independently. Relax with a fresh seafood lunch at your own expense, before checking out the 11th-century cathedral, the bustling harbor or the local shops.
Day two excursion: cruise to the island of Capri. We also must fit in a stop in Maiori for a swim in a secluded cave.
