    We had the most fabulous trip that I could have imagined. I did not want it to end but there it is! We had a perfect mix of planned and unplanned. The hotels were great - each with its own little charm. The tour guides were both superb, especially the one in Florence. Her depth of knowledge was so interesting that I think she could do whole trips with just the artwork. She knows and loves her Florence. There is nothing that I can think of to have made it any better except maybe more time :-). The booklet that you sent us was so very helpful. It had great ideas and we could look things up when we would get overwhelmed. The guides had a suggestion or two as well for us. We did find the yarn place in Chianti you suggested and it was very fascinating. Thanks again for everything.

Itinerary

Departing from Positano, this boat tour first passes the small fishing village of Praiano, considered to be one of the most romantic spots on the coast; and the Fiord of Furore, a fascinating creation of nature that has a small village of the same name at its core. Here, Roberto Rossellini and Anna Magnani fell madly in love with one another while filming the movie L'Amore.

Next stop is Conca dei Marini, where you will visit the Emerald Grotto, named after the brilliant green waters inside the cave. Further along, the boat stops by a small cascade of fresh water where you can go for a swim. If there is still time before lunch, you will stop at a cave near Maiori - the setting for many of Rossellini's movies - for another dip in the azure sea.

A small restaurant built on stilts on the beach is the perfect place to relax and enjoy a 3-course meal paired with a great local wine. After satisfying your appetite, the boat slowly cruises back to the port of Positano.
