Just beyond Sorrento lies one of Europe's most enchanting stretches of coastline. On this full day excursion, you'll drive along the jaw-dropping Amalfi Coast and explore two of its most emblematic towns – Amalfi and Ravello.
The Amalfi Coast's beauty has inspired the likes of novelists EM Forster and DH Lawrence as well as composer Richard Wagner to put pen to paper. And it is easy to see why – it's the stuff of postcards. Pass pearls such as Positano and Praiano as we snake along dramatic coastal roads to Amalfi itself. There's free time to wander the colourful alleys that cascade down towards the sea. The striped-façade cathedral is a must-see.
In the afternoon, it's up the epic Valle del Dragone to Ravello. Even more elegant than Amalfi, it boasts views to die for as well as some of Italy's most romantic gardens. On the main square, you'll find the cathedral – famed for its rare 12th century bronze door – and the Arab-Norman Villa Rufolo palace and gardens.
