Pompeii, Positano & Sorrento excursion from Naples cruise port
Naples shore excursion N° 2 – Pompeii, Positano & Sorrento – full day
If you are looking for a tour that offers quality time at each stop, this is the one! Positano is half way along the Amalfi Coast offering an excellent insight of the famous Amalfi Drive without doing the full length of the road; feel the power of the Romans whilst discovering Pompeii and enjoy free time in the charming town of Sorrento ... you have the perfect itinerary.
Visit the amazing Roman city frozen in time. Walk the streets and see where the Romans of 79 AD lived, worked, relaxed and entertained. Pompeii was partially destroyed and buried under ash and pumice during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, completely lost till it was accidentally rediscovered in 1749. Since then, its excavation has provided an extraordinarily detailed insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire.
We now join the coast road making photo stops at the best panoramic points to admire the view of Sorrento, perched on tufa rock rising 50 meters above the crystal blue, Mediterranean sea.
Before visiting Sorrento we join the famous Amalfi Drive; one of the most spectacular roads in Europe fall in love with the breathtaking scenery as we travel to Positano.
Free time in the picturesque town of Positano. Your driver will drop you right in the heart of Positano, saving precious time and your legs! Wander the traffic free lanes filled with linen shops, art galleries and cafes. Following the only route down through Positano you will pass the beautiful church of Santa Maria Assunta and finish at the seafront vibrant in colour and bustling with energy.
After a driving tour through the districts of Sorrento we come to 'Piazza Tasso' the main square - from here you will have free time to explore the delightful historical centre, with its numerous churches and shops to suit all, or enjoy a drink in the main square and ‘people-watch’ with the locals. Sorrento is famous for the production of Limoncello made from lemon rinds, alcohol, water and sugar and you will find many shops in the historical area offering free samples. Other agricultural production includes citrus fruit, wine, nuts and olives. Inlaid wood craftsmanship/Intarsio is also developed.
