Doing it by bus or minivan is the best choice because you can also stop along the way to take amazing photos and admire this unique scenery.

By taking this tour, you will have the opportunity to pass through some of the towns on the Amalfi Coast such as Praiano, Furore and Conca dei Marini. But you will also have the unique opportunity to spend some free time in 3 of the main towns on the Sorrento Peninsula.
From Sorrento to Positano
You will be picked up at the meeting point in Sorrento and begin your journey by minivan. Your first stop will be Positano. From Sorrento to Positano it takes an hour to discover this wonderful 'city of waterfalls'. Positano is famous for its particular structure and views. It was built on several levels and its viewpoints are worth the climb.

A place where nature meets food
The Amalfi Coast is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, not only because of its natural scenery or panoramic views, but also because of Amalfi's basket of products. You could say that the lemon is Amalfi's special product. In Amalfi you can enjoy your free time drinking some limoncello, the traditional handmade liqueur made with Amalfi and Sorrento lemons, or eating the most famous dessert in southern Italy, the Delizia a Limone.
