Your shore excursion from Salerno port will begin as you meet one of our drivers, waiting for you at the gangway of your cruise ship. He will be holding a sign with your name on it.
As we drive by Salerno our driver will give you information about the city and we will plan our day together. On the way to our first destination, Pompeii, we will see Mt. Vesuvius in the distance, the volcano responsible for one of the most well known historical events in this region.
In Pompeii you will have the opportunity to tour one of the most important archeological sites in the world! Archeological excavations are open to the public between the hours of 08:30 and 18:30 everyday of the week. Either licensed guides can be arranged ahead of time (additional cost) or you can visit the site 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 offer some insight into the Roman life that came to a premature stop there on 24 August AD 79.
We will meet back outside of the ruins and we will begin our drive to Sorrento, stopping right in the main square where you can have one hour or more to explore this beautiful resort town built as a terrace on the Mediterranean Sea.?
Here you can enjoy a walk through the historical part of town, shop, have a delicious gelato or a shot of the coast’s famous Limoncello!
We will then transition to the Amalfi Coast where we will find ourselves driving down-hill directly through Positano. We will descend 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 we will park and walk downtown where all the streets lead to the waterfront.
Here you will have about one hour or more to discover this magnificent village denominated "The Jewel of The Amalfi Coast”. Positano has many unique things to see: the cathedral, ceramic shops, lemons, hand-made shoes and, of course, "Positano fashion”.
Whether you prefer to have lunch in Sorrento or Positano, our driver will be happy to give you suggestions on where to dine.
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.
