Your English speaking drivers will meet you at Sorrento port. He will be waiting as you exit the tender, holding a sign with your name on it. The day will then start as you head towards Pompeii traveling along the Sorrento Coast.
After about a 1-hour drive, you will arrive at the ruins of Pompeii. This, the largest archaeological site in Europe, is the first stop on this breathtaking shore excursion.
Your private, licensed guide will greet you upon arrival and then lead you on a 2-hour tour of this ancient Roman town where life came to a premature end on 24 August 79 A.D.
After this amazing archaeological experience, you will head to your next destination of the day, Positano. To reach this famous town along the Amalfi Coast, you will be driven along both the Sorrento and Amalfi Coast roads where you will stop a couple of times to capture photos of the magnificent coastlines.
You will then find yourselves driving downhill directly through Positano where you will descend down the winding one-way road, passing by many picturesque houses and shops, and ultimately arrive in the heart of the town, at “Piazza dei Mulini”. This is the last point accessible by car, so the car will be parked and you will walk downtown where all the streets lead to the waterfront.
Here you have about one hour and a half to explore this beautiful village denominated “The Jewel of The Amalfi Coast”.
Positano has many beautiful things to see: the cathedral, ceramic shops, lemons tree, hand-made shoes and, of course, “Positano fashion”.
You will then head up on the hill above Positano where your table with a view is already booked and waiting for you. Lunch starts with appetizers including: Parma ham, buffalo mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, eggplant parmigiana, tomato salad with fresh basil and many other things that you will love if you like Italian food. There is also homemade pasta such as: ravioli, cannelloni, gnocchi (of potato) and finally 'mamma pasta' which is a delicious dish. Save a little space for the "dolci deliziosi" (delicious desserts), all made by mamma (the owner of the restaurant). Of course after the desserts we usually have a shot of limoncello (very famous lemon liquor made in Italy, typical of the Amalfi coast) which aids as a digestive. All drinks are included and without limit, even the exquisite wine is home-made.
After the visit in Positano head back to Sorrento (approx. 40 minutes ride along the scenic Amalfi Coast), the drop off is at Sorrento port (same as departure point).
