Itinerary

Sorrento

The driver will pick you up at the agreed location in Naples or Salerno and will head to Sorrento that is about 1 hour drive from both cities.

In Sorrento you’ll spend your time at leaisure, relaxing or shopping or eating a delicious ice cream! You’ll explore on your own this charming resort and you’ll be amazed by its beauty and its stunning vistas. Very picturesque are the cobbled streets of the old town flanked with little cafes, restaurants and shops selling typical souvenirs or local produce.

Amalfi Coast

After Sorrento the driver will head to the Amalfi coast,  a beautiful mountainous 40 km (24 mi) long coastline. It has been considered Italy’s most romantic road and it starts just west of Positano. The Amalfi Coast is spectacular: 500 feet above the sea level, with sharp turns and narrow lanes, especially in the small towns. Along the road that leads to Positano, you’ll enjoy a stunning view of the tiny islands of Li Galli. The islets were once known as Syrenuse, as they were thought to be the home of the Sirens.

Positano

You’ll stop at the Belvedere of Madonnina where the sight of Positano from above will take your breath away. Once a small fishing village, Positano is now a chic seaside resort thanks to John Steinbeck who, during a visit here in 1953, wrote: “Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.

In the centre you’ll be visiting the charming village walking through its characteristic alleys and spending your free time the way you like.

Furore

You’ll reach a spectacular scenery at Furore, a deep gorge eroded by the water that opens to the sea 1.25 miles (2 kilometres) beyond Marina di Praiano. At a short distance is the Emerald Cave that can be reached by lift or by a short boat ride from Amalfi. Stop for a visit at the old Maritime Republic of Amalfi with its narrow medieval streets lined with shops and its prized Norman Cathedral of Saint Andrew dating back to the IX century.

Free time for lunch in one of the characteristic restaurants.

At the end of the tour the driver will lead you back where you met.

Antonio collected us from Naples Train Station to take us to our Sorrento hotel. From the outset, we were charmed by his warm personality, professionalism and friendliness. He can converse well in English, but also allowed me to practise my Italian, responding in whichever language we used. He is very knowledgeable about his region and was kind enough to stop en route, unprompted, to take photographs of us with the beautiful Bay of Naples as a backdrop.
Neapolitan melodies were playing quietly on the CD Player; we sang along to the ones we knew -Funiculi Funicula, Torna a Surriento etc.,and Antonio joined in, making the already pleasant journey even more enjoyable.
Take a tour with Antonio and you won’t be disappointed. Highly Recommended.
Mille Grazie!
