POMPEII ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE
Once you get to Pompeii, don’t worry about the tickets, we have already purchased them for you. Our private guide will be waiting for you at the entrance and take you to a two hours tour of the town. Skip-the-line and visit one of the most famous archaeological site in the world, a 2,000 years old city just buried in ashes and lava during the eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 AD. In this magical place time simply seems to have stopped running on very date of the eruption. People were caught in the middle of their daily businesses. Bodies were found hugging or sleeping, bread loaves baking in the oven, table set ready for a meal and so forth.
ENJOY BREATH-TAKING PANORAMAS ALONG THE AMALFI COAST
After the visit of Pompeii* you will proceed to Sorrento and you will see some of the most beautiful landscapes in all Italy on your right side. Here you will experience Mediterranean beauty in its purest form: deep blue sea, steep cliffs, luxurious villas, incredibly narrow roads stretching along the rocky coast. There will be unlimited opportunities to stop for pictures. Finally we arrive in Sorrento, a city almost as ancient as Rome itself (600 BC) that features Oscan, Greek, Roman and Medieval vestiges that make it one of the most enchanting cities in all Italy. Next stop after Sorrento will be Positano, a real gem at the very heart of the Amalfi Coast, where you can walk around the winding streets of the cutest little town you can find on the southern coasts of Italy. You can relax and enjoy your time as you visit Positano’s fancy boutiques, shops, seaside cafes and of course the stunning panorama and natural treasures.
We will then return to your cruise ship.
