Your English speaking driver-guide will meet you at the cruise terminal or your accommodation, with private adapted transport. You find him by the sign that he is holding with your name on it. He helps you to the vehicle, and your tour to Pompeii, followed by Amalfi Town or Sorrento begins!
The day starts in Pompeii with your two hours private guided tour. Pompeii is a site, or ruin, that words or pictures cannot describe or capture. It used to be a very busy and lively town that ceased to exist on the 24th of August of the year 79. Surprised by the smothering ash of the volcano, the inhabitants had no chance to survive.
There is a unique path that makes Pompeii more accessible to everyone thanks to the creation of ramps and elevators to cross the architectural barriers. However, please be advised that the terrain may be bumpy, and not quite yet up to international standards for mobility. Click here to learn more about the accessibility of Pompeii.
Not only the well-preserved streets and houses can be viewed, but your guide will also share insights about the history of Pompeii and the life that its inhabitants had at the time. Hear the stories about the gladiator’s school. Take a look inside a villa of one of the richest families of that time. See the theater and the bathhouses.
The tour continues with a visit to Amalfi Town or Sorrento. You can visit either Amalfi town or visit Sorrento. Sorrento is a picturesque and relaxed town, filled with little shops, taverns, villas, and incredible scenery. The pathway is mostly flat, and the village is fairly easy to get around.
Amalfi Town is further out and surrounded by dramatic Cliffs and coastal scenery. The town of Amalfi was once known for its trading power in the Mediterranean between 839 and around 1200. Amalfi is the main village of the coast, referred to by the locals as Costiera Amalfitana, and used to occupy a high position in medieval architecture. The village has few cobbles, however keep in mind that the famous Cathedral is not accessible for an inside visit, as this is accessed with many stairs.
At the end of the day, your driver-guide brings you back to the cruise port again.
