Travel to the south of Italy on an Amalfi Coast food tour in splendid Sorrento and discover why this is one of the most popular destinations in Italy!

The southern regions of Italy are sometimes referred to as “il Mezzogiorno,” and they have a lot to offer the culinary traveler. Our splendid Sorrento Amalfi Coast food tour focuses on the Sorrentine Peninsula, popular Amalfi Coast towns such as Amalfi, Ravello, and Positano, and the isle of Capri, which is just off the coast. You will stay in the heart of Sorrento at a charming B&B property, a perfect home base for exploring this vibrant and upbeat town during your Amalfi Coast culinary tour.

Sorrento is one of our favorite destinations in Italy, perched dramatically on the cliffs overlooking the sea. Its bustling main square and many restaurants (from the simple family-run trattorie to many Michelin-star options) make it a place we are happy to return to over and over again.

Fruit stand at market during an Amalfi Coast food tour in Sorrento.Our Amalfi Coast food tours include of course hands-on cooking classes featuring regional dishes, but also wonderful foodie excursions to taste locally produced cheese, the delicious limoncello liqueur, homemade gelato (including Sorrento’s famous limon sorbet), and wines that come from the foot of Mount Vesuvius. Your Amalfi Coast wine tastings will include crips whites and rich, tannic reds. Your meals will feature hearty homemade pastas, fresh seafood, divine mozzarella, and of course plenty of sun-ripened produce.

Enjoying wine and the view on an Amalfi Coast food tour with TIK.When you are not tasting fabulous food and wine on our Amalfi Coast food tours, you are off exploring the local culture. Head on a traditional “gozzo” boat to the isle of Capri for a day to explore. Explore the Amalfi Coast towns of Ravello, Positano, and Amalfi during a full-day excursion (including cooking class). Set off toward Naples to visit the ancient ruins of Pompeii, famously destroyed by the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD.
