Meet the Woman behind Amalfi Coast's Best Travel Tours for Women
“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.”
— John Steinbeck*
These words by John Steinbeck, written back in 1953, could not be truer for me. I’m Victoria Harper, founder of In Splendid Company, and from the very moment I saw Positano emerge in the distance as we rounded one of the many dizzying bends that make up the Amalfi Coast drive, I knew I had found the place I had been looking for all of my life. It was a bleak January day, not the picture-postcard view one sees in travel magazines. But all the same, there it was before me, and I instantly knew every nook and cranny of this enchanting place would be mine to explore for many years to come! Leading group travel tours for women to this enchanting area has given me the opportunity to make the Amalfi Coast my home away from home
Positano isn’t just about the enchantment of the sea, mountains, and sun in the land that the mythical sirens called home. It is also a very real place to the people who live and work here, many of whom have become wonderful friends to me. Their colorful stories are what truly give Positano its beauty and charm. To come here on a day-trip and gaze at the famous views before moving on to another town isn’t truly seeing Positano. To linger here, as our group tours do, to become part of the landscape, listen to roosters crow as the sun rises, watch the ships come and go with their passengers or the catch of the day, cheer on the impromptu soccer games in the afternoon when the schoolchildren come home, and then gaze in wonder as the moon rises over the mountain and illuminates the impossibly blue Mediterranean Sea—this is the true Positano experience.
Come with me on one of our travel tours for women, and experience what La Dolce Vita truly means!
