Tour to the Amalfi Coast

Our Small Group of Eleven Travelers Visit the Amalfi

traveling professor amalfi coastFor quite some time I have been resisting adding a small group tour to the Amalfi Coast.  I wasn't sure if an Amalfi Coast tour really lent itself to the small group tour concept.   But after studying and doing some research, I think we have come up with a terrific option for a small group tour of the Amalfi Coast.  We'll start off in Rome, visit Herculaneum and Pompeii before moving on to Sorrento.  The next day we'll visit Positano, Amalfi, and Ravello.   The following day is a tour to Capri.   On the last day we relax in Sorrento before heading back to Rome.  Read the blog post to find out more about our small group tour to the Amalfi Coast.
