pompeii2Begin this exiting excursion directly at your hotel or from the pier, you will pass Mount Vesuvius as you begin your coastal drive south to the ancient city of Pompeii, one of the most famous excavations in the world.
You will see the shadows of life as it was lived in 79 AD.
Once a thriving empire 1,900 years ago, it was devastated by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, when 30 feet of volcanic ash and pumice stone covered the city.
Archaeological excavations are open to the public between the hours of 08:30 and 18:00 every day of the week, on request a licensed guide can be arranged for Pompeii tour.
Please note that since Pompeii is a popular area for tourists, we strongly recommend being cautious of your belongings!
sorrento3On your way from Pompeii to Sorrento, you will see typical villages and the dolomitic cliffs which have characterized this peninsula for many centuries.
The next stop is the fabled town of Sorrento.
Legend tells us it was the “sirens” of Sorrento who attempted to lure Ulysses onto the rocks.
The town has a wonderful climate and views of the Bay of Naples and the Island of Capri (that was once joined to Sorrento).
A short drive through the town before you arrive in the centre – a major shopping mall for the local people as well as tourists, with many shops.
Sorrento, also being a city from the past, has lots of interesting shops offering the irresistibly Italian inlaid music boxes (demonstration available).
postanobigDriving down-hill directly through Positano descending the winding one-way road, bypassing many local restaurants, leads to the heart of the town – the busy central Piazza dei Mulini that is connected to a narrow downhill path and some occasional flights of steps that lead to the seafront.
At Piazza dei Mulini, you must leave the car as all streets leading to the waterfront are for pedestrians only.
These streets also lead to the cathedral, shops selling lemons, shoes and “Positano fashion” clothing.
While Positano’s ceramic and linen industries (Moda Positano) date from the 1950s, they boomed when tourists discovered the village in the 1970s.
Today you’ll find lots of these shops on this street, along with galleries featuring the work of local artists (a visit to a factory is at your own discretion).
There is a short walk back uphill in order to return to the car and this time, ascending the mountain, returning to the main coastal road to start the journey back to the hotel or ship.
