HERCULANEUM with guided tour of ruins & AMALFI COAST - Full Day

After greeting your driver in the port of Naples we will make the short journey to Herculaneum. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Bay of Naples as we drive around the foothills of the only live volcano on mainland Europe, Mt. Vesuvius. On a clear day you will also see the Isle of Capri and the peninsula of Sorrento.

During the journey your English speaking driver will discuss the area offering a wonderful introduction and pointing out all places of interest along the way. In no time at all you will be in Herculaneum.

HERCULANEUM:

Guided tour of Herculaneum. Be amazed as the guide takes you back in time and brings the ruins back to life in front of your eyes !!! Walk the streets and see where the Romans of 79 AD lived, worked, relaxed and entertained.

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 meet back up with your driver .... we continue through stunning Italian countryside arriving directly to Ravello set 335 meters (1100 feet) above sea level.

RAVELLO:
Free time in the most peaceful and charming resort along the Amalfi Coast. Greta Garbo, Jacqueline Kennedy and Tennessee Williams all holidayed here, and the town still has an air of restrained glamour.

Surrounding the main square you will find Ravello's Cathedral built in 1087, the entrance to the magnificent Villa Rufolo with its famous gardens offering breathtaking views over the Amalfi Coast. Leading off the main square delightful traffic free lanes where you can experience local craft shops and even wine tasting.
You may wish to enjoy a cool drink in the main Piazza and soak in the atmosphere before meeting up again with your driver.

We now join the famous Amalfi Coast road where you will enjoy some of the best scenery in Europe .... lots of photo stops along the way till we reach Positano.

POSITANO:
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.

 

At the end of the day enjoy a relaxing journey back to the Port of Naples.
