We’ll show you breathtaking scenery as you travel from dramatic clifftop towns, through hidden fishing coves and along some of the most spectacular, sunny coastlines imaginable.

The people who live on the Amalfi Coast are a fiercely proud group. It goes way back (as these things often do in Italy), to the time when the Duchy of Amalfi was an independent maritime republic, from the 7th to the 11th centuries. That’s half a millennium of independence to crow about – at a time when pirates, marauders and all-conquering barbarian hordes were more common than hot meals in the Mediterranean.
There is an increasingly booming wine push in Amalfi, with wine producers buzzing around Ravello and in the hills around Tramonti. All wines are made with old grape varieties and are a suitable addition to the local dishes; an abundance of beautiful, fresh Mediterranean fish combined with the wealth of ingredients and vegetables harvested from the hills and land surrounding the dominant Lattari Mountains.
Pompei And Amalfi Drive
Vertical hills with lemon terraces dotted with pink and white splashed villas, which then spill over to bustling, larger seaside resorts like Amalfi, Minori, Positano and Vietri sul Mare. Narrow stone steps and passageways connect these intriguing coastal villages with random smells of agrumi, fresh basil, simmering tomato sauce and other familiar and tasty southern scents.

The Amalfi Coast is perhaps the most beautiful coastline in the world. And cycling along the ‘Costiera Amalfitana’ is an unforgettable experience, a series of breathtaking views! With our brand new e-bikes you can enjoy this amazing landscape almost effortlessly. You will cycle with ease along the beautiful coastal road and will have plenty of time to take in the landscape and stop in the villages along the way.
This short tour offers you the best of the area’s coastal scenery: first, the Amalfi Coast, the southern side of the peninsula, with its towering cliffs and picturesque coves. Definitely one of the most beautiful coastlines in Europe! But the other side of the Sorrento Peninsula, overlooking the beautiful Bay of Naples, is an area of stunning natural beauty and littered with cultural treasures. Via an additional loop to the far western tip you can cycle ‘face to face’ with the beautiful island of Capri, with a long tradition as one of the most important tourist destinations in Italy.
Best known for its medieval coastal towns and inland villages such as Amalfi, Positano and Ravello and the seaside resort of Sorrento, the area is also home to several hidden wonders. Small nature reserves, old paper mills and wild mountain landscapes are just a short distance from the busy tourist centers and waiting to be discovered by the conscious traveler. This short tour gives you the opportunity to discover both the busy tourist and the quiet hidden, but no less spectacular side of the Amalfi Coast. You work in the beautiful town of Amalfi itself. This allows you to take time to visit the Duomo and the Paradise Monastery, and perhaps take a walk in the Valley of the Paper Mills and discover the city’s amazing cultural heritage. And take time for a hearty lunch in a small ‘trattoria’ and taste the region’s famous ‘limoncello’ lemon liqueur.
Amalfi Coast Bike Tour
During your day of cycling along the astonishingly beautiful coastal road you can visit the ceramics town of Vietri, the gateway to the Amalfi Coast and the small fishing village of Cetara. You cycle along the headland of Capo d’Orso, a strict nature reserve, beautiful Maiori, beautiful Minori and small whitewashed Atrani. You’ll marvel at Ravello’s location, high on a rocky cliff, as you visit its world-famous villas and gardens. You can stop for a cup of tea in the small teahouse in the gardens of the majestic Villa Cimbrone in Ravello and stroll through the alleys of Atrani.
On the way to Sorrento you will cross the deeply eroded and astonishing ‘fjord’ of Furore, explore fashionable Positano and cycle through the small hamlets of Praiano and Conca dei Marini. From Sant’Agata sui Due Golfi, small quiet winding roads take you first to Termini and then past Massa Lubrense to Sorrento. Here you can enjoy beautiful views both of the Amalfi Coast and of the Sorrento Coast and the Bay of Naples, dominated by Mount Vesuvius.
On this amazing cycling adventure you will discover several hidden aspects of the Amalfi Coast and see for yourself that it has become Italy’s most famous coastline for a reason. It will become clear that it only takes a little effort to get ‘off the beaten track’ and be in the middle of nature, just a few hundred meters away from the hustle and bustle. In short, you will discover this beautiful corner of Italy in a completely different way.
Please note: This is a moderate tour suitable for anyone in good general physical condition. The tour is specially intended for E-Bikes, but can also be done with a racing bike. On some routes you may encounter longer climbs. The rides are quite long, but leave plenty of time for sightseeing. Average cycling times: approximately 4 – 5 hours per day. To have more time for discoveries, you can split the first day of cycling in two (and add a few extra loops), and if you also want to split the last long day’s ride, you can choose to spend the night near Sant’Agata , in which case you have two days to discover the Sorrento part of the peninsula.

After your arrival in Amalfi, you will be installed in the hotel right in the center, so that you can immediately take a walk through the historic center of this beautiful town. If you arrive early, you may want to take a short drive to nearby Ravello, a medieval village, ‘halfway between the sky and the sea’, which is home to part of the Amalfi region, along the beautiful winding coastal road, defined by some ‘the most beautiful ride in the world’.
Day 2 – The ‘eastern’ Amalfi Coast: cycling along the beautiful road from Capo d’Orso to Vietri & Cetara, Minori, Maiori and Atrani, with an optional visit to Ravello
On the first day of cycling you will discover the eastern part of the Amalfi Coast, which ‘officially’ starts at the charming village of Vietri sul Mare, known for its colorful tableware. What we know is that Vietri has some stunningly beautiful little hamlets, tucked away in the hills. Other villages to explore include the idyllic village of Cetara, named after the Roman ‘cetus’, tuna, which still produces some of the best in the world. Take time for a cup of coffee or a cappuccino in the small bar near the small harbor of the village, overlooking the colorful fishing boats moored on the white sandy beach. Then it goes back to Capo d’Orso, the highest point of the road, and a beautiful view of the entire Amalfi Coast and Capri. After admiring the views, it continues, now downhill on a beautiful winding road through lemon groves, forests and dramatic cliffs, until you arrive in Maiori, the largest town on the coast. A short stretch around the headland takes you to Minori, with its nice little center and beautiful seaside promenade.
