    Boat Trip to Positano & Amalfi

    The lure of the Amalfi Coast's cascading villas, vertiginous coastal towns and half-moon beaches all beckon on this full day excursion. A hydrofoil boat ride from Casamicciola in Ischia kicks off the day so you'll be making your approach into Amalfi in time for a cappuccino in one of the piazzas. After a couple of hours wandering the cobbled streets, you'll hop over to Positano, whose colourful buildings appear to hang from the sides of the surrounding cliffs. You'll have another couple of hours to yourself to sample some limoncello, dabble in some boutique shopping or chill out on the beach.
