We took this day trip from Rome and it was awesome. Our guide was Rob..he's an Italian American, who grew up on an American base here. He married a Roman and loves it here. He was extremely knowledgeable and has excellent people skills. The weather was extremely hot but he kept us in the shade as much as possible. The bus ride is 3 hrs each way. They stop halfway for a bathroom and quick bite break. You then hop on a ferry to Positano...takes about an hr. Once there you will get 2 hours of free time. We ate at the Chez Black. The food was something dreams are made of. After that, you will hop on the ferry to Amalfi. You get an hr there to walk around the shops and make sure you get the Amalfi Lemon sorbet. The lemons are 3 times the size of a normal lemon. It's a long day but will give you a great idea of what the Amalfi is about
