Tour FAQs

Where will we stay on the Amalfi Coast?

We suggest the Hotel Villa Romana, a charming and family-run 4-star hotel situated in the seaside village of Minori. Only 12 miles from Positano, in the heart of the Amalfi Coast, it is the ideal base from which to explore the coastline and its surroundings. The small town of Minori itself is a hidden treasure, overlooking the turquoise-blue Sea - an authentic slice of small town Italian life. Relaxation is easy when you can choose between the hotel's sun terrace, its outdoor pool or the private beach. Hotel Villa Romana is only steps from the lively seafront promenade with its many bars, restaurants and boutiques; here you can enjoy the vividness of life in a typical Italian town.

How far in advance should I start planning the trip?

As soon as possible because Rome, Florence and the Amalfi Coast are very popular destinations for seniors traveling in Italy. Don’t Wait! Airlines typically release tickets anywhere up to 12 months prior to departure, so start locking things in as soon as you feel comfortable. This will ensure the best options including the most favorable hotel rates and access to tailor-made travel experiences based on your interests.
