Kid Friendly from Amalfi Hotel
This tour is for all families with kids that love the typical products of Amalfi and Sorrento coasts, including pizza and olive oil demonstrations.
One of Joe Banana’s English speaking drivers will meet and greet you at your accommodation in Amalfi.
This private day tour will start with a drive by the famous Sorrento Coast. After approximately 45 minutes, we will arrive at the ruins of Pompeii, the first stop on this kid friendly day tour. It is the perfect place to visit especially if your children are studying Roman history in school.
You'll have about 2 hours to explore one of the most important and well preserved archeological sites in the world. Either a private guide can be arranged ahead of time (additional cost) or you can explore the area on your own. However you choose to explore this UNESCO World Heritage site, you will be in awe as you see the remnants of this 1st century city which came to a premature end on 24 August 79 A.D. after the massive eruption of Mount Vesuvius (visible from the ruins).
We'll meet back again outside the ruins and from there we'll drive about 1 hour to get to Sorrento. We will stop a few times on the way to get beautiful pictures of the coastline.
Once we arrive in Sorrento, our first stop will be at the restaurant where we'll make and eat our own pizza. Authentic Neapolitan pizzas are made with local ingredients like olive oil, mozzarella cheese and San Marzano tomatoes, which grow on the volcanic plains in the south part of Mount Vesuvius.
After we eat our pizzas, we will continue on to Gargiulo Olive Oil Farm, which is situated in the countryside of Sorrento. Your children will love to learn how the base ingredient of Italian cuisine, extra virgin olive oil, is made. The visit to this olive oil factory includes a tour of the farm, which still houses the old mills of 1849 with old millstones and the metal press which used in the ancient technique of olive oil processing as well as the new mills with technology that is less fascinating, but surely qualitatively safer.
After this we will have a chance to taste about 15 different types of extra virgin olive oil with freshly baked bread.
After this fun and interactive tour we'll drive back to your accommodation in Amalfi.
We reserve the right to change the order in which we visit sites.
