What you can expect

Experience a full day tour from the port of Naples - this tour gets you to see the spectacular scenery of the Amalfi Coast and of course a historical visit to Pompeii where your guide will give you astonishing history and stories which will amaze you. The tour will then continue with the breath taking views along the winding coastal roads on the way to Sorrento where the cliff edges seem to drop into nowhere.

ou will be met at the entrance of the port of Naples (just outside the terminal building) by an English-speaking Cruising Excursions professional guide who will guide you to your air-conditioned transport, ready to commence your tour.

The tour will start with a beautiful drive down the Amalfi Coast, along what is said to be one of the most spectacular coastal roads in Europe. There will be plenty of photo opportunities along the way and you'll be able to view the cliffside village of Positano from above (please note: this tour does not enter the town Positano).

Later in the morning, the tour will stop in Sorrento, a beautiful town straddling the cliffs overlooking the water to Naples and Mount Vesuvius. There will be free time to explore the area, visit the souvenir shops and sample the local produce of Sorrento - an area famous for its lemons and the production of the digestif, Limoncello.

The drive from Sorrento to Pompeii takes about 45 minutes, with Mount Vesuvius in full view and the island of Capri to your right-hand side. Your dedicated guide will give you running commentary throughout the journey and will stay with you throughout the day, except during your free time in Sorrento.

On arrival in Pompeii, your English-speaking guide will take you on a two-hour tour of the famous ruins and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Learn all about the lost city buried by the ash of Mount Vesuvius following its catastrophic eruption in 79 AD. Your guide will be on hand to give you all the information on what is arguably Europe's most compelling archaeological site.

After the visit to Pompeii there will be a little free time for you to use the rest room, get a coffee or do a little souvenir shopping.

The tour will end with a drive back to the port of Naples which will take approximately 90 minutes, leaving plenty of time for your cruise ship departure.
