Amalfi coast Drive (Positano Photo Stop) - Sorrento and Pompeii
Your private driver will greet you at your Hotel / accommodation (or Naples train station), after a brief presentation you will be accompanied to the luxurious vehicle where our staff will offer you every comfort you need. After that they will give you important information about the tour and the places that you are going to visit. Finally, let's get started your dream Private Tour !
Your driver will take you on a coastal drive to the famous Amalfi Coast. He will stop few times along the way to take fantastic panoramic photos of you with the famous Sorrento, Gulf of Napoli and Amalfi Coast scenary in the background. During the tour, some cultural and gastronomic general information about the area will be provided along the way (inside the vehicle) by your private driver. Then, you will find yourselves driving to Positano for an incredible Photo Stop at the ‘Madonnina’ for the best view of Positano from the top. See the houses clung to the mountainside like white sugar lumps coated in brightly coloured bougainvillea tumbling down to a small, beach and warm blue Mediterranean sea.
After Positano photo stop, we will then drive to Sorrento. Arrived in the city of Sorrento, the private driver will leave you in the historical square called Piazza Tasso for your free time but first of all he will show you the fastest way to go to inner part of the city where you can visit the old churches, museums, the beautiful buildings and the landscapes. You can visit the factories of famous Limoncello; an alcoholic drink made by lemons, sugar and water, a typical Italian product.
At this point it’s time for a nice lunch, trust our staff and you will enjoy a incredible meal made by local ingredients, such as seafood and handmade fresh pasta. Alternatively you can have a pizza or a panino, something quicker but equally delicious. Stopping for lunch will be according to your needs and your time.
On the way to Pompeii, we will drive by Mt. Vesuvius, the volcano responsible for one of the most famous historical events in Italy. The old city of Pompeii is located at the base of the Vesuvius and was flourish during the Period of the Roman Empire. After the eruptions of the Volcano in 79 B.C the city has been destroyed and covered by ashes and lapillus. The Archeological dig started in 1748 and in three centuries only 3/5 part of the city has been discovered. Now the city has been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO and 3.750.000 tourists each year come to visit it.
Before leaving your private driver please agree upon the time to leave. Then the driver will recommend a suitable time to get back to your Hotel / accommodation (or Naples train station) after this lovely day!
