At the end of the day, we will return to the starting point. The excursion will start around 8 to dedicate to the necessary time to the visits.
After we have left the enchanting scenery of the charming Positano, we will head to Amalfi, the first leg of the tour.
Along the way, we will go through other small villages, like Praiano, to a fishing village, Furore, with its fjord and Conca dei Marini with the Emerald Grotto; unique and special natural beauties.
In about 30 minutes we will reach Amalfi.
FIRST STOP: AMALFI
In Amalfi the atmosphere of its important past to fascinate after many centuries. Many architectures testifying to its former glory. The magnificent cathedral dedicated to St. Andrew is not to be missed. The dome of the bell tower in the polychrome majolica and the gable with its splendid mosaics, highlight the Arab-Norman style of the façade. The interesting Ancient Arsenals where the famous prisons were built with more than 100 oars, used for commerce with the Orient.
Walking through the streets you will be able to discover local products, enjoy a cool homemade ice cream and enjoy a delicious limoncello, made from the unmistakable Amalfi “sfusato”, a lemon grown exclusively on the Amalfi Coast. A precious memory certainly is a souvenir Amalfi paper, the real one is still produced today using techniques learned from the Arabs.
The available time in Amalfi is about 1 hour. The second leg of the tour, then we will leave again to head to Ravello.
SECOND STOP: RAVELLO
Ravello is located on a natural terrace overlooking the sea. Founded by Roman patricians, it has always been surrounded by a halo of nobility. Throughout history, it has been able to capture the civilizations with elegant lines, sinuous architectures and enclosed gardens. The Cathedral dedicated to San Pantaleone stands in the main square.
Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone, which offer enchanting landscapes, terraces overlooking the sea, gardens bursting with scents and colors, valuable architectures of the classical style or the typical oriental style.
Before leaving, it will be possible to have a lunch break. If you want, I recommend a typical restaurant to taste

THIRD STOP POMPEII
Pompeii is definitely one of the most fascinating archaeological sites in the world, the aura of tragedy and mystery that can still be felt strolling among the ruins, makes this place unique. Customs, eating habits, lifestyles and religious preferences with these fabulous ruins that will be able to surprise you, thanks to their excellent conservation.
When Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD, there was no escape for anyone. Men, women, children and animals were swept away in their escape. The history gave immortality to everyone.
If you want, I can reserve a tour guide for you, which will accompany you to discover the main public and private buildings of Pompeii. You will discover the Forum, the Basilica, the Temple of Apollo, the magnificent thermal baths, theaters and then the beautiful villas with mosaics and cheerful and bright frescoes.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful words about my service. I’m pleased that you enjoyed your time with me and I hope to see you in Italy again soon.
We had a wonderful day with Mauricio. He drove us to Pompeii and arranged for a 2 hour private tour with Celestina. She showed us the highlights of Pompeii and was full of interesting knowledge. She was fantastic!! Next, we went to an authentic Italian restaurant, which was delicious. He even bought my daughter a jar of cherries that she was trying to find!!! Next we went to Ravello and Positano. We had time to shop for gifts and souvenirs. He told us about the history of the areas we drove through. The scenic drive was absolutely gorgeous. Mauricio was kind, patient, and made sure we had the best day ever!! We highly recommend this tour and driver!! We took many excursions on our cruise but we all thought this was the best of the best!!!!!
