Day 2 - Transfer to Sorrento with stop and guided visit of Pompeii & Herculaneum – 6 hours

Pompeii and Herculaneum archeological sites are located just in the middle of your way from Napoli to Sorrento, 30 mins driving between each stop. So it might be a perfect day to visit these ancient ghost towns. Both of them fell on the same day almost 2,000 years ago. They were both buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, they were both discovered well over 1,500 years later and they are now both unique Italian heritages. But these two cities are not the same, either in their history or in the way the volcano destroyed them. Discover with your local guide the major differences between Herculaneum and Pompeii while diving into  a history and special atmosphere of these places.

Day 3 - Scenic Coast Tour: Positano, Amalfi, Atrani & seafood lunch – 8 hours

Today is the most scenic day, as your driver-guide will take you for a truly memorable experience visiting the most famous and magical settings overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea. First stop is Positano. From the centrally located Piazza dei Mulini, which is the last drivable section downtown, you will enjoy a very pleasant walk along a narrow downhill street leading to the seafront area passing by the cathedral, several outdoor cafes, green grocery, art & ceramic stores. From Amalfi you will then head to Amalfi – an ancient maritime republic.

It is a very pretty little town with a fascinating history, in a spectacular setting wedged between the sea and the mountains, with several good restaurants,  ceramic shops and homemade limoncello! Life centres on the open-air salon of Piazza del Duomo, dominated by the flamboyant, striped façade of the Norman-Arab-style cathedral with its interlaced arches and a set of magnificent bronze doors cast in Constantinople in 1066. The best place to refuel and reflect is the charming old Pasticceria Pansa, whose delizie al limone, creamy cakes flavoured with local lemons, are legendary.

To escape Amalfi’s crowds, you will then take the stepped footpath that leads over the hill to Atrani, a fishing village with an atmospheric tangle of tightly packed buildings, tunnelled walkways and staircases and a brilliant fish trattorias, where your lunch will be served.
