Full description
Take a scenic drive along the Amalfi Coast and discover some of Italy’s most bucolic landscapes, from the brooding volcano of Mt. Vesuvius to the bougainvillea drenched streets of Positano. Your personal driver will pick you up from your cruise ship in Naples and take you to the base of Vesuvius, where you will see the oldest observatory in the world, and the sparkling islands of Ischia and Procida out to sea. Choose 1 or 2 of the 3 coastal villages, Ravello, Amalfi and Positano to visit. Either continue along the Sorrento Peninsula to Positano or go to Amalfi and discover a maze of walkways straight out of the Middle-Ages. You could drive up to Ravello, the most elegant of the area's towns, and explore villas that inspired Wagner. There, stroll through the gardens of Villa Rufolo and catch your breath as you take in some of the most spectacular panoramic views along the coast. Next, cross the mountain range separating the Amalfi Coast from the Sorrento Peninsula, for spellbinding views of Vesuvius. On arrival at Pompeii, meet your guide and walk along the original basalt roads of volcanic rocks, looking down at hundreds of white travertine spots used to reflect torch light.  Explore the buildings of the Forum, and see a display of human casts of Pompeii residents, caught by the volcano in the exact pose that they died. Then discover the Roman equivalent of today’s fast-food restaurants. Continue to the former Red Light District to admire Roman frescoes of erotic images. Visit one of the city’s 3 theaters before heading back to your cruise ship in Naples.

    Adequate

    We had high expectations for this tour. Our guide was there early to get us and was very personable. Did not give us much info unless asked but was knowledgable with answers . Pompeii was fantastic, guide was there early, so we had cooler time and avoided much of the crowd, two hours was not enough time to see this amazing place. Got dropped off in Sorrento to shop. Driver prompt with picking us up at each spot, then taken up coast for lunch and 2 bad town. Lunch was at an expensive restaurant filled with tourists where all the guides ate free, no time for seeing that city. Good at this restaurant was good and view was exceptional but did not like that we were not given choice about lunch, as I would have rather seen city sites and forgo 90 minute lunch. As with other tours with this company, promised drinks never offered. Did enjoy the tour though and guide was personable.
