On a Budget – 1 Week Amalfi Coast Itinerary

For those looking to spend a bit less, this itinerary is often done with moderate hotels and fewer private transfers and tours.  It still offers the same million dollar sea views and provides plenty of time to explore on your own!


Day 1 – Arrive – Arrive in Naples.  Meet your driver at the airport for a Private Transfer to the small town of Praiano.  Overnight accommodations for 5 nights in Praiano in a moderate hotel (to be selected based on availability and price).  Sea view room recommended.

Days 1, 2 & 3 – Praiano – Relax and explore on your own.  Suggested activities include:

  • Relax on the beach in Praiano
  • Visit the nearby town of Positano
  • Hop a taxi or ferry boat to Amalfi to explore for the day
  • Take a trip to Ravello to enjoy the views
  • Check out the night life at Africana Famous Club

Day 4 – Capri from Praiano – Head to the marina in Praiano in the morning to meet your tour guide for a full day Capri  excursion!  This small group tour sets sail for a cruise along the Amalfi Coast before heading to Capri for a sea and land tour.  Enjoy several hours of free time to explore Capri.

Day 5 – Praiano – Enjoy free time to relax in Praiano and explore the Amalfi Coast!

Day 6 – Sorrento – After breakfast, check out of your hotel.  Take the bus or ferry or ask the hotel to help you arrange for taxi service to Sorrento.  Overnight accommodations for 3 nights in Sorrento in a moderate hotel (to be selected based on availability and price).  Cliff side location recommended.

Days 6 & 7 – Sorrento – Explore Sorrento on your own.  Recommended activities include:

  • Take a walking food tour
  • Taste Limoncello at a nearby lemon grove
  • Take the train to Pompeii for an afternoon small group, guided tour
  • Say farewell with a sunset cruise on your final evening

Day 8 – Depart – Check out of your hotel, and a driver will meet you for a Private Transfer to Naples airport for departing flight


I always recommend pre-arranged transfers to and from the airport, but public transportation is also available for those wishing to really cut costs.  Minimum budget of $2500-3000 (excluding air) recommended.
