Amalfi drive : from Euro 35 per person

The Amalfi Drive is said to be the most spectacular road in Europe and from Sorrento, the winding cliff top road offers breathtaking panoramic views at every bend. Each spot is a world of its own, a fantastic world which dazzles the imagination and inspires unforgettable impressions. First stop at Amalfi, which gives its name to the whole coast on which it lies. Once a thriving Marine Republic, powerful and prosperous and now a thriving holiday resort. The unmistakeable cluster of white tightly packed houses rising up the hillside is dominated by the beautiful Cathedral, which stands superbly on the top of a great flight of steps leading up from the main square. Housed in the magnificent Cathedral are the remains of the Patron Saint of Amalfi and also Scotland ? Saint Andrew. From Amalfi we visit Ravello, which nestles eleven hundred feet above the sea in the hillside. We visit the Villa Rufolo which gave the musician Richard Wagner the inspiration to create one of his most famous operas, Parsifal.

Capri & Anacapri : from Euro 75 per person full day

 

No holiday here in Sorrento would be complete without a trip to the evocative Island of Capri. Sail across the bay of Naples for the start of an unforgettable day. For so small an island, about 4 miles long and 2 miles wide. Capri has had much said, sung and written about it. First you will visit the fabulous villa of Dr. Axel Munthe, a Swedish doctor whose best selling book ? Story of San Michele? tells of his time on Capri. His villa was built with the remains of Roman ruins; there is a beautiful shady garden with terrace offering splendid views of the island. This is optional and the entrance fee should be paid direct to the guide. You then go down to Capri town which is very chic with shops, hotels and restaurants along winding streets. The main square Piazza Umberto I has a pretty white church and several open-air cafes where you can sit and watch the world drift by. Leading off the square are medieval looking alleyways and arcades full of shops selling the handicrafts of island, clothing; jewellery made from coral and gold, shoes and ceramics. Admire the colourful gardens of Augustus overlooking the famed Faraglioni Rocks and Marina Piccola where Gracie Fields once lived. There is free time for you to go off and admire the elegant boutiques, stroll along the cobbled streets or simply relax on the beach. There is so much to see and do on this tiny island paradise you will be sorry to leave.

Ercolano half day ; from euro 37.50 per person

 

Our journey takes us along the coast road through Castellammare di Stabia and out along the motorway to Herculaneum. Herculaneum was destroyed along with Pompei in 79 A.D., and was rediscovered in 1709. It was a residential town without Pompei?s commercial importance, surrounded by the villas of wealthy Romans. When the catastrophe of 79 A.D. occurred, Herculaneum was submerged under a torrent of mud and lava that hardened into a soft tufa (a kind of course rock) that preserved many of the wooden parts of houses and household objects which can be seen today. A large portion of old Herculaneum is still buried under the modern town and even today excavations are going on to discover what treasures lie buried under the rock.
