Wonderful day exploring the Amalfi Coast
We enjoyed a great day exploring the Amalfi Coast with our driver Jean-Paulo. He drove our family in a very comfortable air-conditioned Mercedes van. He speaks great English and shared lots of interesting history and other information about the area with us as we drove. Pick up was 9.30am in Positano. We stopped at the excellent Grotta dello Smeraldo (Emerald Grotto – beautiful cave you can access via a lift and visit for €5 pp) on the way to Amalfi, stopping for photos at a few vantage points. We had about an hour in Amalfi to explore the Cathedral before heading up the hill to Ravello. Jean-Paulo recommended lunch at Salvatore restaurant, which was really excellent, and then a visit to Villa Rufolo, the highlight of which is the magnificent gardens and views. We left Ravello about 3.30pm and were back in Positano about 4.40pm. A wonderful way for the whole family to enjoy the beautiful coastline and views without the stress of navigating the often very narrow roads and trying to find parking.
