The Amalfi Coast in the summer is a favorite escape from the heat of the cities in Italy. It’s where the Lattari Mountains dotted with colorful villages with pebbled beaches meet the cool, clear waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea at the Gulf of Salerno. Italians and tourists from around the world come to bask in the sun on the small beaches crowded with sun beds and colorful umbrellas.
To reach the villages one usually arrives by car or a crowded bus on narrow winding roads. This is great if you enjoy driving and don’t mind traffic. Personally I love doing it in the off-season as the drive is absolutely breathtaking.
Another option is to take a ferry from Salerno or Napoli to one of the various villages which has a dock for this service. This can be a pleasant ride despite the mass transit, but there are limitations…
Our Private Boat tour
To truly enjoy the beauty of the coast from a different perspective with less stress and no traffic or crowds is to hire a private boat for the day. Our excursion starts from Vietri sul Mare or Salerno and we have a few different boat options depending on the size of your group.
So pack your swimsuit and sunscreen and be prepared to take a dip and swim to a private beach or soak in the sun in front of the homes of a couple of Italy’s most famous celebrities. We’ll enter sea caves and stop for lunch at a beach restaurant where you can only reach it by boat and we’ll spend a little time together exploring Amalfi and Positano, two of the most famous of the Italian seaside villages of the coast.
This activity includes me or one of my beautiful friends as your English “translator” and tour leader of the coast while my Italian friend drives the boat. Weather and seas permitting, we’ll show you some of our favorite places along the coast. This excursion can be booked from May through September or maybe even early October if the weather is nice.
