Positano, Sorrento (& Vesuvius)

Sorrento and Positano, two clear examples of the romantic and magical essence of this area of Southern Italy

Duration: 8 hours

Characterized by an immense cultural and historical interest that coexist with the natural environment of immeasurable beauty.

This tour combines the unique experience of climbing to the crater of Mount Vesuvius to admire the stunning views of the bay of Naples and the opportunity to visit two jewels of the Amalfi Coast.

Enjoy a beautiful scenic drive while looking perfect and steep cliffs that plunge into the Mediterranean Sea that are delineating a line of maritime villages.

Positano, a charming pedestrian village built on a hillside leading down to the Mediterranean Sea, full of narrow streets and steps that connect to each other. It’s not surprising to admire beautiful historical sites and unique landscapes at the same time. Thanks of its singular climate and a delightful view, Positano has become a preferred destination for romantic travellers. From the Piazza dei Mulini you will start walking downhill to the seashore from where you can experience beautiful beaches with relaxing restaurants and Cafes. Visit the Parish church of Santa Maria Assunta with its large majolica dome, to admire the beautiful icon of the Black Madonna, painted in the XIII century.

Positano is famous for its elegant designer boutiques, hand – made leather items, excellent traditional gastronomy and beautiful ceramics.

Have the most pleasant time wandering around the small and touristic city of Sorrento, one of the most outstanding towns in Italy, where you will be able to admire the most beautiful medieval buildings and monuments of Roman and Greek times. The historic centre of the city still shows the orthogonal layout of the streets of Roman origin, while to the mountain, is surrounded by walls of the 16th century.

Typical sites are the main square in Sorrento called Piazza Tasso, the 15th century villa, Palazzo Correale, the Basilica of San Antonio and the spectacular views of the bay of Naples from the Marina Grande, a beautiful small harbour and picturesque fishing port. Sorrento is also famous for the high quality shops, typical products, carpets, leather goods, the productions of limoncello liqueur and luxury jewelleries.

Drive direction the Vesuvius while enjoying a beautiful landscape until reaching the car parking located at 1000m high from the sea level. Once there, enjoy this once in a life and unique experience of hiking the biggest volcano in the continental Europe and admire the stunning views of the Bay of Naples and Pompeii in good weather.
