This tour is for all families with kids that love the typical products of Amalfi and Sorrento coasts.
Pompeii and Sorrento with Olive Oil and Pizza demonstrations.
One of Joe Banana’s English speaking drivers will meet and greet you at the port of Naples. He will be waiting outside of the cruise ship terminal holding a sign with your name on it.
We'll start this private shore excursion driving by Salerno giving you all the general information about the city and we'll plan the day together. You will also be able to see one of the most famous volcanos in the world, Mt. Vesuvius, during our drive.
The first stop on this kid friendly shore excursion will be in Pompeii, 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 you can explore this site on your own or a private guide can be arranged ahead of time (additional cost) for a private two hour tour of this ancient Roman town where thousands perished 24 August 79 A.D. after the massive eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
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 the restaurant where we'll make and eat our own pizza. Authentic Neapolitan pizzas are made with local ingredients like San Marzano tomatoes, which grow on the volcanic plains in the south part of Mount Vesuvius and Mozzarella cheese.
After this fun experience, we will move on to the 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 tour we'll drive about 1 hour and 30 minutes to get back in time to the ship.
