POMPEII, POSITANO AND SORRENTO  

Ruins of PompeiiSorrento

If you want to discover what life must have been like in Rome over 2,000 years ago, Pompeii is the place to visit. This ancient Roman city was destroyed and buried by the eruption of the volcano Vesuvius in 79 A.D.. Although this tragic event ended the lives of 20,000 Pompeian residents, the ash that buried the town served as a sort of mummification for the entire city; Archeological excavations are open to the public between the hours of 08:30 and 18:00 everyday of the week at a cost of Euro 10,00 per person. Please note that since Pompeii is a popular area for tourists, we strongly recommend being cautious of your belongings! If you would like a guided tour of Pompeii with a licensed tour guide this can be arranged at the additional price of Euro 75.00 per hour (min. 2 hours).

From Pompeii we take a drive along the coastal road to Sorrento. 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 top. A quick drive through the town before you arrive in the center, where you find the main shopping street, for the locals as well as tourists, with lots of shops (normally open all day everyday in the summer, but during the low season usually are open between 09:00am - 13:00 then 16:00 - 20:00).

From Sorrento we drive along the breathtaking Amalfi Coast to Positano and, descending the winding one-way road, bypassing many local restaurants, we get to the heart of the town - the busy central Piazza dei Mulini that is connected to a narrow downhill path and a few flights of steps that lead to the seafront. All streets leading to the waterfront are for pedestrians only so we must drop you off at the Piazza dei Mulini. The only way to reach restaurants situated on the beach that serve fish that have been caught the same morning, such as La Cambusa and Chez Black, is to go by foot! These streets also lead to the cathedral, shops selling ceramics, lemons, shoes and "Positano fashion" clothing. Positano is alive at night as well as during the day with exotic nightclubs such as "Music on the Rocks" and various bars and cafés that remain open until the sun begins to rise over the horizon. There is a short walk back uphill in order to return to the car.
