Leaving your accomodation behind you, you will head towards an "earthly paradise", characterized by the scent of lemons, the sweet and sour smell of fruit blossom, crystal sea and a series of marvellous hamlets and towns which line the entire Sorrentine peninsular and the Amalfi Coast.
The first town you will encounter will be Sorrento a small town which boasts all that nature has to offer: Wrapped in the green of the hills, inundated by the scent of flowers, and with a marvellous sea, Sorrento is the pearl of the Sorrentine Coast. Vesuvius appears to watch over the tranquillity and beauty of the town, whose historical centre is laden with craft shops and monuments like the Duomo (cathedral) and S. Francesco’s Basilica. The centre of Sorrento and Tasso square are dedicated to the poet Torquato Tasso who was originally from the area. Not far is the Villa Comunale, often immortalized in beautiful postcards exhibiting breathtaking views.
After Sorrento one proceeds along the Amalfi coast, encountering the charming Positano, perched on the mountainside and overlooking the clear crystal sea. You will be able to walk along the narrow streets which lead down to the main beach. The main monuments are the church of Saint Mary Theresa of the Assumption, with its beautiful maiolica cupola and the Saracen tower. Not to be underestimated is shopping in Positano, and excellent gastronomy.
Continuing along the Amalfi coast, you will go through the small fishing villages of Praiano, Furore and Conca dei Marini, eventually reaching Amalfi. After an obligatory visit to the famous cathedral of San Andrea, you can stroll through the streets of the old historical centre, browsing through souvenir shops or merely being captivated by the fragrances and tastes of the local delicacies. Your driver will be happy to recommend a good local restaurant where you can enjoy tasty local dishes.
Finally we will lead you along a very narrow winding road taking us to the elegant Ravello: a rural town perched high upon a plateau overlooking Minori and Maiori. Ravello is world famous for its breathtaking views, natural beauty and ancient monuments and its charming Villas and gardens: Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo.
After this wonderful day out, you will be driven back to your ship.
