Wondering if anyone of you is interested to join us on the Amalfi Coast/Pompei tour on August 19 . Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
For those visiting the Amalfi coast for the first time, you may be a little overwhelmed with the choices. This tour will allow you to pick and choose what you want, accompanied the whole drive by an English-speakinging driving guide. Whatever your goal - is to relax and take in the view, walk through the charming coastal towns - he will make it happen.
When you reach Pompeii your on-site private local licensed guide (suggested) will take you on a fascinating two-hour tour through this amazing place. Once a thriving empire, the city of Pompeii had about 20,000 inhabitants in 79 AD, when it was completely covered in 30 feet of volcanic ash by the deadly eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Listen to your guide as he tells you the history of the city as you take in the baths, villas, theaters and wrestling grounds.
After Pompeii, what you do is up to you. Here are some options to get you started - or ask the advice of your experienced driver, who is there to make your day the best!
If you want we can drive up to Sorrento, one of the most fascinating Campania and one of the most suggestive site of Italy where we will break for a genuine lunch in a typical resturant.
Descend the winding one-way road that leads to the heart of Positano, a pretty village of seaside villas, covered in orange blossom and roses. Explore the busy central Piazza dei Mulini, connected to a narrow downhill path and some occasional flights of steps that lead to the seafront. Follow the streets to the shops selling ceramics, lemons, shoes and "Positano fashion" clothing, and don't miss the lovely Church of Sant Maria of the Assumption, with its characteristic majolica tiled dome and bell tower.
Next drive through the mountains and villages to reach the busy square of Amalfi, one of the most popular seaside resorts in Italy. Take some time to wander along the narrow streets of the town, to the Piazza del Duomo and the Cathedral of St. Andrew with its many styles of decoration. You can also wander along the charming little streets to find various bars and cafés, as well as many shops selling limoncello, clothing, swimwear, and, of course, ceramics.
If there is time, take the slow uphill drive along a narrow road, passing several vineries and olive factories on the way, to Ravello, a rural village unspoilt by tourism, perched on top of the mountain cliff above Amalfi and Minori. Famous for its breath-taking views, the natural beauty and ancient monuments of Ravello are presented at their best in the gardens of Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo.
Of course, we are entirely flexible - if there is a special place that you want to see, just let us know!
This tour is with a great, English-speaking driving guide. In Pompeii you will be met by a private local licensed guide for a 2-hour tour. (suggested)
