Amalfi Coast Day Trip From Sorrento (7 Hours):Meet your expert guide and air-conditioned coach outside your centrally located Sorrento hotel, or at a nearby prearranged location if the coach is unable to access the front of your hotel.
Take a scenic cliff-edge journey along the Amalfi Coast, enjoying incomparable views of the sparkling Mediterranean Sea as you travel. Stop first in Positano, a charming jewel of a town that teeters on the edge of the rocky coastline. Hop back on the coach and move on to the towns of Amalfi and Scala, where you’ll have free time to tick off the top sights and to refuel at one of the traditional Italian restaurants (own expense).
Your final stop is at the peaceful hilltop town of Ravello. Admire views of the Minori and Maiori beaches and spend your free time exploring the local landmarks, such as the magnificent Villa Rufolo, a 13th-century villa with a beautiful garden. Hop back on the bus for the journey back to Sorrento, where your tour concludes. If you’ve chosen to do the Amalfi Coast first, your Mt Vesuvius excursion will begin the following morning.
Mt Vesuvius Tour from Sorrento (4 Hours): Meet your knowledgeable guide and coach outside your Sorrento hotel or at a nearby prearranged location. Get comfortable in your seat for the journey towards the formidable volcano.
Be spellbound by the commanding views as your coach climbs higher and higher up the slopes of Mt Vesuvius. At around 3,280 feet (1,000 meters), head outside with your camera to capture views of the surrounding sights, which include the Bay of Naples, the Sorrento Peninsula and the islands of Capri and Ischia.
Feeling adventurous? Venture up further on foot and peer into the mouth of the crater. Throughout the whole experience, your expert guide will be on hand to reveal the details of that fateful day some 2,000 years ago when Mt Vesuvius erupted in a violent surge, destroying everything and everyone in its path.
Afterward, settle back into your seat on the coach for the return journey to Sorrento, where your tour concludes. If you’ve chosen to do the Mt Vesuvius tour first, enjoy a free afternoon and evening, before embarking on your Amalfi Coast tour the following morning.
