HERCULANEUM, POSITANO AND SORRENTO - Full day.

 

After meeting your English speaking driver from your cruise ship in the port of Naples we make the short ride to Herculaneum, taking in amazing views of Mt. Vesuvius, Isle of Capri, Bay of Naples and Sorrento.

In no time at all you will be Herculaneum !! 

This was the holiday resort of the rich Romans, used by the noble to escape the noise and confusion in Rome. During the disaster of 79 A.D when Mt. Vesuvius erupted the wind was blowing in the direction of Pompeii, Herculaneum was saved, or so they thought! 12 hours later the area was swamped by a landslide of liquid mud. Leaving for us a town frozen in near-perfect preservation, here you can explore Roman villas in their 2 storey state, enjoy frescoes so colourful they look like they were painted yesterday not 2000 years ago. 

After this great experience stepping back in time, back to present day and we head for the FAMOUS AMALFI COAST .... Enjoy some of the best scenery in europe, lots of photo stops along the way till we reach Positano.

POSITANO:
One hours free time in the famous picturesque town of Positano, the vertical town perched on the Amalfi Coast. Your driver will drop you right in the heart of Positano, saving precious time and your legs! giving you longer to 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 arrive at the 'picture perfect' main beach of Positano before making your way back up to meet your driver.

From Positano we travel towards SORRENTO.

After driving tour through the districts of Sorrento we stop in '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 the best stop for lunch as there is something for everyone, cafè and ice cream parlours; stalls selling locally grown fruit; pizza, pasta and seafood restaurants; and finally michelin star restaurant, your driver will be able to advise on the day.

Sorrento is famous for the production of limoncello, a digestif liquor made from lemon rinds, alcohol, water and sugar you will find many shops in the historical area offering free samples.

 

After your visit enjoy a relaxing journey back to the port of Naples OR take advantage of the ferry from the Port of Sorrento to the Port of Naples at the end of the day ( available only for ships sailing after 6:45pm ) ... email info@aptours.it for more information.
