Starting from the port of Naples (or Salerno) you will begin the day visiting the beautiful coastal town of SORRENTO, your English speaking driver will take you along the coast for you to admire the bay of Naples and Sorrento before reaching this unique village.
A small town where kindness and hospitality are a combination that is handed down from one generation to the next. Sorrento, is indeed the land of colours: brilliant or delicate hues depending on the change of the seasons. Take a moment to observe how emotional the view is, gazing towards Naples or Capri, the outlines of which can be seen clearly and always amazes all visitors by the variety of colours and the beauty seen. The arrangement of the modern streets preserves still until today the remains of what was once an ancient roman town. Sorrento is also famous for the production of Limoncello, made from lemon rinds, alcohol, water and sugar, the best lemons are from here so why take the opportunity to taste a bit of this famous liquor.
Next is a picturesque drive along the coast of Amalfi to reach, most likely the most famous one, Positano. The legend says it had been founded by Poseidon, god of the seas, a declaration of his love for the nymph Pasitea. The town develops in a vertical way, following the steep incline of the mountains rising sheer from the sea. Homes are painted with gaudy colours, giving the impression of a precious stone with thousand facets that cause multicolour reflections and narrow streets. Reach the sea quickly, passing the buildings, homes and shop to reach the small beach, where you have the most gorgeous panoramic view of Positano.
Once ready to leave Positano behind, your driver will take you to the mystical ancient city of Pompeii, where you will step back into time. This extraordinary place now frozen in time, was once a playground for wealthy Romans and rich merchants alike, gives us a fantastic and clear inside of life during the Roman times. You can understand better and be a part of Roman daily life just walking through its streets. You will be able to walk through the main sites, see mosaic floors and frescos still in their original spot, you can visit their bakery, their brothel houses, their baths, their theatres…a visit to Pompeii is one of the most amazing experiences you will have in a life time, there is no place in the world like it.
Once you are ready to head back, the driver will meet you and drive you back to your ship
* There will be time of course for lunch in any of the towns you wish or we can recommend a local place to you as well.
