Program

Day 1 - Welcome to Amalfi! Wine tasting + welcome dinner

The adventure begins at your four-star accommodations, centrally located near the Amalfi piazza, just minutes away from the famous cathedral. Adjust and settle in, knowing this will be your home for the full week. In the evening, you will enjoy a welcoming wine tasting, a casual walk in the city center, and a delicious welcome dinner.

Day 2 - Cooking class under the lemon groves

Today is dedicated to Amalfi and its prized lemons. You 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, you will tour the surroundings and get an overview of where the lemons grow and why the Amalfi environment helps them thrive. After, you will roll up your sleeves and get cooking under the most scenic location.

You will prepare a multi-course lunch utilizing only local ingredients. After all the work, you will get to enjoy the fruits of your labor with a delicious late lunch, in an environment like you have never seen before. Relax and enjoy the area, or walk off those lunch calories while snapping some Facebook-worthy pictures.

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

Day 3 - The Island of Capri with lunch on the island

Ready to visit one of the most adored islands in Italy? Then welcome to Capri! Today, you will sail along the coast on a privately-chartered, fully equipped boat. You will enjoy a truly magical experience.

Your personal skipper will sail you along the most charming places as you 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, you 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 spots in Italy.

Day 4 - Winery visit, tour, and tasting with cooking class on location

Located at the foot of Mt. Vesuvius, today you visit a family winery that has been producing unique organic wines since the 1940s. During the class, you will prepare some traditional local dishes and learn the history in which these dishes came to be. You will tour the facilities and discover the scents, flavors, and unique colors of this area.

After a walk through the organic garden, you will select ingredients to be used in your class. During the class, you can expect to prepare dishes such as ravioli caprese, parmigiana napoletana, and a delicious almond and lemon cake. All enjoyed with wine made on location.

After the class, you head back to Amalfi to enjoy some time as you please.

Day 5 - Foodie walking tour of Sorrento + walking tour visit to Positano

Be sure to have your cell phone and camera charged today, as you're heading towards two of Italy's most photographed locations: Sorrento and Positano. You begin with Sorrento, which will be experienced in the most delicious way.

Enjoy a food-filled adventure in the historic center as you taste over a dozen local specialties including arancini (rice balls), gnocchi, buffalo mozzarella, local salumi, and cheeses. For dessert, you will try Campania's most beloved pastry, the sfogliatella. The shell-shaped pastry is a specialty of this region.

Of course, it's all washed down with vino, craft beer, limoncello, and other local liquors. Meet the local artisans behind these products, all while enjoying the most scenic route.

After your delicious time in Sorrento, you head towards Positano. Easily one of the most recognized locations, the cliffside village is filled with charm, personality, and character. Take in the sights of the colorful homes, the scent of the sea, and the natural beauty that surrounds you. ​Tonight, you will enjoy a delicious pizza dinner.

Day 6 - Visit Ravello and its villas with lunch on location

Today you step outside of Amalfi for a 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. You will visit two of the Amalfi Coast most famous villas, Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone.

Now a five-star 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 your time in Ravello.

​A late lunch will be enjoyed at a lovely wine bar in Ravello.

Day 7 - Leisure day + thank you dinner

Today, you will have the day to enjoy as you please. Enjoy the beaches in Amalfi, walk the neighboring towns, take the ferry to Positano, or simply spend some time locally and purchase some local artisanal souvenirs. Whatever you decide to do is up to you. In the evening, you will enjoy a final celebration dinner.

Day 8 - Arrivederci Amalfi

The week is sadly winding down and today, after our delicious last breakfast at the hotel, you will say good-bye to your new friends and the friendly hotel staff and check out.
