#JAMA010# Sorrento, Positano & Amalfi

One of Joe Banana's drivers will meet you at the port of Amalfi for this memorable shore excursion. He will be waiting as you exit the tender, holding a sign with your name on it. The day will then start as we drive by the Amalfi Coast, stopping a few times along the way to take some beautiful pictures.


To reach the famous town of Sorrento we will drive along the coastal road to its furthest point where spectacular views of the entire bay of Naples and the Island of Capri (that was once joined to Sorrento) are revealed as the Amalfi coast road emerges from over the mountain cliff. We will then stop right in the main square of Sorrento where you can have one hour or more to explore this wonderful town.


Sorrento, next to the Amalfi Coast, is a major shopping centre for the local people as well as tourists.


After Sorrento, we will find ourselves driving down-hill directly through Positano where we will descend down the winding one-way road, passing by many picturesque houses and shops, and ultimately arrive in the heart of the town, at “Piazza dei Mulini”. This is the last point accessible by car, so we will park our car and walk downtown where all the streets lead to the waterfront.


Positano has beautiful things to see: the cathedral, ceramic shops, lemons, hand-made shoes and, of course, “Positano fashion”. Your driver will be happy to suggest a restaurant where you can enjoy the flavors of the Amalfi Coast. 


Here we can have about one hour or more to discover this beautiful village denominated “The Jewel of The Amalfi Coast”. Your driver will be happy to suggest a wonderful, local restaurant or trattoria for a lunch based on your preferences. 


Back on the main Amalfi coast road and leaving Positano the coastal road begins and runs through the fishing villages of Praiano, Furore and Conca dei Marini, and continues until it finally reaches the busy square of Amalfi (Piazza del Duomo) which is situated on the seafront.


If you would like to steep yourself in Amalfi's history there are some interesting sights to explore. Two of the most spectacular are the cathedral situated along the coast and the paper mill museum. Behind this square lies the main shopping street of Amalfi, that terminates at the furthest and highest point of the town. Along the pedestrian street are various bars and cafés, not to mention the many shops selling limoncello, casual clothing, swimwear, gifts, basic groceries, and of course, ceramics.


The driver will end the tour at the main square in Amalfi where you can either explore the area on your own or walk back to the tender pier which is directly in front of the main Amalfi square.
