Your shore excursion will start as you meet one of Joe Banana’s English speaking drivers, waiting outside of the cruise ship terminal, holding a sign with your name on it.
As you drive by the Amalfi Coast, you will find yourself driving down-hill directly through Positano, descending down the winding one-way road, passing by many picturesque houses and shops, ultimately arriving in the heart of the town, at "Piazza dei Mulini”. This is the last point accessible by car, so here is where your driver will park and you will be able to walk downtown where all the streets lead to the waterfront.
Here you will have about one hour to discover this magnificent village denominated "The Jewel of The Amalfi Coast” with its cathedral, ceramic shops, lemons, hand-made shoes and, of course, "Positano fashion”.
You will then drive up on the hill above Positano in order to reach Sorrento, stopping right in the main square where you will have around one hour free time to shop in the quaint alleyways or to explore this beautiful resort town built as a terrace on the Mediterranean sea before your restaurant reservation at “Donna Sofia”. Your lunch will start with appetizers including: Parma ham, buffalo mozzarella cheese, ricotta cheese, eggplant parmigiana, tomato salad with fresh basil and many other things that you'll love if you like Italian food. You will then move on to your pasta dishes (homemade pasta) which could be ravioli, cannelloni or gnocchi (potato dumplings). Save a little space for the delicious desserts of course followed by a shot of limoncello (very famous lemon liquor made in Italy, specifically the Amalfi coast) which will work as a digestive. All drinks are included and without limit, by the way even the wine is homemade.
You will then continue to the last stop of your tour: Pompeii. Here you will have the opportunity to tour one of the most important archeological sites in the world! Together with your private professionally licensed guide, you will explore this UNESCO World Heritage Site and be in awe as you see the remnants of this 1st century city which offer some insight into the Roman life that came to a premature stop here on 24 August AD 79.
After this memorable day, we will then drive back to the ship.
If we start our tour at 8.00/8.30am we'll be back at ship by 5.00/5.30pm.
