  • Enjoy some free time in Positano and Amalfi
Full description
Depart from your hotel or meeting point towards Pompeii where, together with your guide, you’ll start the visit of the UNESCO World Heritage Site and be fascinated by what you discover. During the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD, thousands of Romans lost their lives and the city was abandoned for centuries. When a group of explorers rediscovered the site in 1748, they were surprised to find that, underneath a thick layer of dust and debris, Pompeii was mostly intact. The buildings, artifacts and skeletons left behind in the buried city will give you an incredible insight into everyday life of the ancient world.

Your visit to Pompeii will be followed by a bus journey to the ancient Marine Republic of Amalfi, where you’ll have time to explore the town or visit the Amalfi Cathedral, a perfect example of Sicilian-Arabesque architecture. The journey back to Sorrento will take you along the famous Amalfi drive, one of the most scenic coasts in Europe.

Before your return, you will also make a stop in Positano, the jewel of the coast, where you’ll have some free time to enjoy the amazing beauty of this small but characteristic village as you walk down the narrow streets to the seafront with its many shops selling the particular Positano fashion and the local production of leather made-to-measure sandals.
