Explore the famous Amalfi Coast with your own driver to chauffeur you from town to town on this private full-day shore excursion from the port of Sorrento. When your cruise ship docks in Sorrento, your private driver will pick you up to take you to the ancient Roman province, Pompeii. Pompeii is one of Italy’s best preserved archaeological sites. The city was a typical ancient Roman village founded 80 B.C. A sudden eruption by the volcano, Vesuvius in 79 A.D. buried Pompeii under 6 meters of ash and wiped it off the map until its initial rediscovery in 1599. This horrible incident have left us an important historical legacy and an incredible glimpse about what the Roman life was like. On this private tour you will be guided by an archaeologist who will draw you the picture of how the streets use to look like with people and horse carriages going up and down. You will see amazing mosaics, murals and walk around the public baths that were equipped with central heating and saunas in a time when the rest of Europe was still living in mud-huts. The archaeological area of Pompeii has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1997. From Pompei our visit takes us along the beautiful coastal road of Amalfi for our visit to Positano. It’s the coast’s most picturesque and photogenic town, with steeply stacked houses tumbling down to the sea in a waterfall of blanched peach, pink and terracotta colors. No less colorful are its near-vertical streets and steps lined with wisteria-draped hotels, smart restaurant and fashionable boutiques. There’s still a southern Italian holiday feel about the place as well, with sunbathers eating pizza on the beach, kids pestering gelati and chic women checking out the boutiques. “Moda Positano” was born here in the ‘60s and the town was the first in Italy to import bikinis from Florence. After visiting the sites you will have time for lunch at a local restaurant and taste some exquisite wine. The shore Excursion will continue in Sorrento, also known as the land of the mermaids. Visit the historical centre, the cathedral and the Church of Saint Antonino, the Patron Saint and Protector of the town. In Sorrento you will enjoy the views of the hillsides covered with olive groves, orange and lemon trees and vines, perched on the top of the volcanic cliff overlooking the bay of Sorrento… hence its name. You will have some free time to stroll through the narrow alleys of the old quarter, browsing the ethnic shops in search for a unique souvenir or just relaxing in one of the several cafès sipping a cup of coffee or enjoying delicious ice-cream. In the afternoon, return to Sorrento port on time to board your ship.
