Planning a holiday on the Amalfi Coast? One question many travelers ask while crafting that perfect Amalfi Coast holiday is how to spend time exploring the coastline from the sea. Of the variety of options available, our personal recommendation is to choose a private cruise on the Amalfi Coast or to Capri during your time in the area. Why private? Read on to find out our top reasons to opt for a private boat tour, from safety during these particular times to family fun and creating your own custom tour!
While the Blue Grotto on Capri gets all the attention, the rocky Amalfi Coast also boasts many beautiful grottoes, caves, and natural beauty to discover. A little secret? We think they’re even more beautiful and fun to explore since they’re more “off the beaten path” and less crowded. Find out why we love the grottoes and caves of the Amalfi Coast and why you won’t want to miss this experience, which is only available on a private boat excursion!
Amalfi is the very heart of the Amalfi Coast, both geographically because it’s located in the center of the coastline and also historically as an important sea republic in the Middle Ages. Many of our guests have asked for our tips on the best things to see and do in Amalfi during their visit, both guests arriving in Amalfi on a cruise ship and those who would like to stop to visit Amalfi during a boat cruise along the coastline. If you have limited time, this guide will make sure you don’t miss any of the highlights of Amalfi. Or perhaps it will inspire you to stay right in Amalfi, which we highly recommend as it is one of the most charming spots on the Amalfi Coast!
The tiny village of Atrani is one of the Amalfi Coast’s most picturesque sights. Nestled in a mountain valley just next to Amalfi, the village isn’t just small. It’s the smallest village by surface size in all of Italy! Measuring only .05 square miles, it holds a lot of charm in a very small place. Although its neighbor Amalfi gets much more attention, Atrani is becoming more and more popular and is often the backdrop for those Instagram photos that gets everyone’s travel dreams flowing. Since it’s one of our favorite spots on the Amalfi Coast, we wanted to show you what we love about Atrani and why you shouldn’t miss it on your next trip to the Amalfi Coast.

Are you dreaming of visiting Positano or missing it terribly? One thing is for sure, Positano bites deep. Have you heard this expression about Positano before?
