Amalfi Coast, Italy 7-Day Trip

$4,050 – Trip cost per person (See below for inclusions and exclusions).

*$300 of the down payment serves as an administration fee and is non-refundable. You can see our cancellation policy HERE.

I’m a single traveler. Will I be charged a single supplement?

If you would like a single room throughout the tour, you can purchase the “single supplement”The single supplement fee for this trip is $850. If you would like your own room, the additional supplement can be purchased at check-out.

If you are comfortable sharing a room with another traveler of the same gender and would like us to pair you with someone to avoid paying the single supplement, we can arrange this for you. Pairing with another person of the same gender comes on a first-come, first-served basis. At the time of booking, there will be a questionnaire pertaining to this. Please complete it accurately so that we can try our best to accommodate your preferences.

IMPORTANT: If we cannot find a roommate for you, you will need to purchase the single supplement. Roommates will always be the same gender. We try our best to pair roommates based on preferences (i.e. non-smokers, no snoring, night owls, early birds, etc.), but this is not always possible. If you are a light sleeper, sensitive to certain smells, etc., we recommend purchasing the single supplement. We will put you in contact with your roommate after booking. If you wish to have your own room at any point during the trip, you will need to purchase the single supplement pro rata. This will also be subject to availability.

  1. Physical requirements

    This trip requires a low to moderate level of physical fitness. The Amalfi coast is famous for its cliffside towns which involve walking uphill and downhill and, in some towns, many steps. The hotel on this trip is one of the few in a flat area with no hills or stairs to climb.

    To participate in this trip you should be able to: 

    • Walk 1 – 2 miles throughout the day, up and down stairs, and over unpaved or cobblestone surfaces with and without an incline.
    • Be comfortable on your feet for up to 4 hours walking and standing, both indoors and outdoors, in all weather conditions.
    • Carry your luggage from the van to the hotel. 
    • Get in and out of a van without assistance.

    Free time

    Our slowcations are designed for the semi-independent traveler, meaning that during your free time, you will be responsible for organizing your own schedule. Your slowcation leader can offer advice on local suggestions and help with taxis or private transportation bookings if you provide sufficient notice. However, please note that your slowcation leader cannot make reservations for extra activities on your behalf. 

    Smile policy

    We welcome all kinds of travelers on our tours, and the group dynamic of each trip is different but also part of what makes the trip so amazing. You will need to treat everyone in the group as well as the locals with respect and kindness.

    Slowcation Leader

    Your slowcation leader’s role is to help you have an unforgettable experience. He/she can answer questions, help book transportation, and offer suggestions about what to do. He/she will always try to go above and beyond to help you have an amazing trip but is not your personal assistant. Travelers must exercise a certain level of self-sufficiency and independence on our slowcations. We also suggest tipping those who went out of their way to help you, especially your slowcation leader who will be with you every day throughout the entire slowcation. Finally, you will need to come with an open mind and adventurous spirit in order to have the trip of a lifetime!

  2. During the first few days of your slowcation, some activities and meals are included in the trip cost. This is a great chance to help you get to know your fellow travelers and get familiarized with your new surroundings.

    During the remaining days of your slowcation, you can choose what you want to do. There will be recommended things to do during your free time. Whether it is planning events, hosting dinners, or organizing excursions with your fellow travelers; the choice is yours!

    Find out more about how our slowcations work by clicking here: HOW IT WORKS.

  3. During your slowcation, you will have 1 day of free time. Your slowcation leader can offer suggestions of things to do and tips to get around. 

    Most of the popular places in the area are easily reachable by ferry, bus, or taxi. Your slowcation leader can offer advice on transportation with sufficient notice. If you’re interested in visiting towns that are not accessible by ferry, bus, or taxi, we recommend booking a tour online to avoid the hassle of logistics or booking private transportation through your slowcation leader.

  4. The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from Amalfi’s pier, a 5-minute walk from the bus terminal, and a 10-minute walk from the next town, Atrani. Its central location makes it a perfect departure point to explore the Amalfi Coast. The easiest way to travel around the Amalfi Coast is by ferry.

    Most coastal towns are easily accessible by ferry from Amalfi. Below are some great places to visit and the approximate time it takes to get there by ferry from Amalfi’s port:

    • Minori: 15 minutes
    • Maiori: 30 minutes
    • Positano: 30 minutes
    • Salerno: 45 minutes
    • Cetara: 5 minutes
    • Sorrento: 1 hour
    • Naples: 2 hours
  5. The hotel is located in Amalfi, near the old town and right on the sea. It is just a few minutes by foot from Cathedral Square, Amalfi’s vibrant main square with plenty of restaurants, cafés, and shops. The town of Amalfi is the historical center of the Amalfi Coast and is how the coast got its name. It is famous for its colorful houses and brilliant blue waters.

    The hotel on this trip is one of the few in a flat area with no hills or stairs to climb but still offers the iconic views of the Mediterranean Sea!
  6. Each group usually consists of around 10 – 16 travelers. We prefer small group travel because based on our experience, small groups are more easily able to integrate into local society and generally have more authentic contact with the locals.

    A small group number also means that you will receive more personalized treatment from the slowcation leader who can thoroughly attend to the needs of each person. Small groups are also more mobile and flexible as travel plans can be easily altered. If the group discovers a special event or festival they would like to attend, it is easier to organize with a smaller group.

  7. Most of our travelers are in their late 30s to late 60s/early 70s and most are solo travelers. Generally, we get a good mix of diverse people and every trip is unique thanks to the group dynamic.

    The minimum age on our trips is 18.

    Everyone is welcome on our trips; male/female, LGBTQIA+/straight, and solos/couples. 

  8. Passport holders of Australia, Canada, and the United States do not need a visa for a stay of up to 90 days.

    If you hold a passport from another country, it’s best to contact your nearest Italian embassy or consulate about entry requirements.

    As a general rule, passports should have at least six months of validity when traveling internationally. Most countries will not permit a traveler to enter their country unless the passport is set to expire at least six months after the final day of travel.

  9. The official currency of Italy is the euro (EUR).

    Find out the live mid-market rate for your currency by using a currency converter online.

  10. We strongly recommend using ATMs while in Italy as they usually offer the best exchange rates. The easiest way is to withdraw money from the ATM at the airport upon arrival and throughout your trip. It is always a good idea to carry some cash on you in case your bank puts a hold on your ATM card.

    You can find ATMs at almost all bank branches as well as at most large supermarkets, some petrol stations, shopping malls, airports, and some post offices. There is a bank very close to the hotel so you won’t have any issues finding an ATM.

    It’s important to tell your bank and/or credit card company that you’ll be using your card in Italy. Some banks may block transactions in foreign countries or currencies if they haven’t been forewarned about your travel plans.

    Since euros are a popular currency, most banks in your home town/city will exchange your local currency for euros. This is a very convenient way to get euros but be aware that some banks might not have favorable exchange rates or charge additional fees to exchange. It is best to check with your bank to see what fees are associated with exchanging money in your home town.

  11. Italy does not have a strong tipping culture. In restaurants, taxis, and for personal services, all tips are at your discretion. If you do decide to tip, around 10-20% of the total bill is appreciated.

    In Italy, a “coperto” is typically charged for the plate/cutlery used and the bread provided. It is usually on the restaurant menu, only a few euros per person, and directly added to your bill.

    Slowcation leader: If you feel he/she did an exceptional job, then you can tip around 70 – 80 euros at the end of your trip based on past travelers’ feedback.

    Drivers: When going on an excursion, a suggested amount to tip your driver is around 5 euros a day.

    Cleaning staff: Room cleaning services are offered daily and we recommend tipping the cleaning staff 1 euro a day.

    For more information about tipping your guide, please see our blog on tipping your tour guide.

  12. We recommend having access to anywhere between 500 to 600 euros during the duration of your stay based on past customers’ feedback. We strongly advise budgeting more than you plan to spend in case of an emergency.

  13. When using your phone overseas, be sure to check with your provider to get informed about data and call roaming prices before you travel. When you land in Italy, you will usually get a message from your provider that will give you the price of data, calls, and texts. See the example below:

    Welcome to Italy! Your plan gives you unlimited data at up to 2G speeds and texts at no extra cost. Calls at 20 cents/min. Want our fastest data and unlimited calls? Get an International Pass for just $5/day. 

    You may consider contacting your service provider to learn about what kind of international plans they offer for calls, texts, and data.

  14. The hotel has Wifi and you will be able to access it from your room though the connection isn’t as strong as you may be used to. You can also connect to Wifi at most cafes and restaurants.

  15. In Italy, there are two associated plug types: types C and E. Italy operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz.

    Below are examples of the two different plug types in Italy (C and E):

  16. Below are a few things that we suggest bringing to make your trip more comfortable:

    • Comfortable walking shoes (good traction & ankle support for cobblestone streets and steps)
    • Sunglasses/Hat
    • Sunscreen (biodegradable, if possible)
    • Rain jacket
    • Warm coat (for cooler nights)
    • Mosquito repellent
    • Umbrella
    • Small, over-the-shoulder day bag or small backpack
    • Any prescription medication and over-the-counter medicine
    • Adapters/Converters
    • Washcloth
    • Extra bag for souvenirs (if needed)
    • Flashlight/headlamp
    • Reusable water bottle

    *All rooms have a hairdryer and hotel soap and shampoo amenities in each room, but it’s best to bring your own if you need some more.

  17. Laundry service is available at the hotel. The price list per item will be available at the reception of the hotel.

  18. A breakfast buffet is served daily and there is a restaurant and bar with a seaview terrace at the hotel.

    The hotel’s restaurant also offers dinner by candlelight above the sea in an elegant yet informal ambiance.

  19. The tap water in Amalfi is safe to drink and many consider tap water to be superior as it comes clean and fresh directly from the mountains. By drinking tap water instead of bottled water, you can help alleviate the plastic waste epidemic.

    If you go to larger cities such as Naples, you can buy bottled water if you would like. Many travelers have said that they don’t enjoy the taste of the water in the bigger cities, but it is still safe to drink.

  20. Most areas of Italy that you will visit on this trip experience few crimes compared to bigger US and European cities. As with any travel destination, it is important to be aware of your surroundings with a secure over-the-shoulder day pack that closes tightly. This way, your belongings won’t easily become the property of any purse snatchers or pickpockets.

    When going to larger cities such as Sorrento or Naples, pick-pocketing is much more common and we advise not putting anything in your back pockets, especially if you are on a crowded bus/train or at a crowded tourist spot as thieves tend to target these areas.

  21. Please review the CDC Health Information for Travelers Website before traveling to Italy to see any recommended vaccinations.

    If you suffer from pre-existing medical conditions or are concerned about what vaccinations may be right for you, we strongly advise that you visit a medical professional or your personal physician before your trip.

  22. We offer private tours to Italy depending on the size of the group and availability.

    Please reach out to us at for more information.


Your arrival and departure city are Naples (NAP).

*Please do not book any flights until you receive a confirmation email from us. You will receive a confirmation email within 24 – 48 hours of booking.


Passport holders of Australia, Canada, and the United States do not need a visa for a stay of up to 90 days.

Hotel Marina Riviera is a family-owned boutique hotel and is located on Amalfi’s seafront promenade. It is just 250 meters from the cathedral square and a few steps away from the beach. The hotel offers an exceptional view of the Amalfi Coast from its panoramic terrace and restaurant overlooking the bay of Amalfi.

This hotel is one of the few in a flat area with no hills or stairs to climb which makes it prime real estate and more expensive than many other hotels on the hillside. The hotel also has a heated pool and a Turkish bath. There is an elevator in the hotel as well.
