during your short visit in the Napoli area?
Let me accompany you along the famous "Amalfi drive" one of the jewels
of the Campania region:
and then to the site of Pompeii the city that was buried nearly 2000
Both places very famous with visitors from
all over the world.
I usually start the day by visiting Pompeii, however if you wish
to change the day around I'll be
pleased to help. ( Itineraries may also be amended due the heavy
traffic or other causes )
In this vast site you can learn about everyday Roman Life: Pompeii was
a large city and many of the buldings teach us
About how they lived: We also have historical testimonies and newly
discovered areas of the city that was
Buried by the ash and the small pieces of volcanic rock (lapilli)
during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD
Tons of volcanic material completely covered the city which then
remained buried under around seven meters of ash and stones, letting mother nature take her course to
preserve this gem
after visiting the excavations, the tour takes you along the
breathtaking Amalfi Drive with its wonderful
Villages as: Sorrento & Positano where we can stop in both places
for about one or two hours
including a little stop for lunch in some nice place
Second Place for visiting "Positano"
* Positano was a port of the Amalfi Republic in medieval times,
and prospered during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
By the mid-nineteenth century, however, the town had fallen on hard
times. More than half the population emigrated, mostly to America.
Positano was a relatively poor fishing village during the first half of
the twentieth century. It began to attract large numbers of tourists in
especially after John Steinbeck published his essay about Positano in
Harper's Bazaar in May, 1953: "Positano bites deep", Steinbeck wrote.
"It is a dream place that isn't quite real when you are there and
becomes beckoningly real after you have gone."
Third Place "Sorrento"
* The Roman name for Sorrento was Surrentum. Legends indicate a close
connection between Lipara and Surrentum,
as though the latter had been a colony of the former; and even through
the Imperial period Surrentum remained largely Greek.
The oldest ruins are Oscan, dating from about 600 BC
The position of Surrentum was very secure, protected by deep gorges.
The only exception to its natural protection was 300 metres (984 feet)
on the south-west where it was defended by walls, the line of which is
necessarily followed by those of the modern town.
The arrangement of the modern streets preserves that of the ancient
town, and the disposition of the walled paths
which divide the plain to the east seems to date in like manner from
So here usual we stop for lunch or testing a real neapolitan pizza
After that I assume that we can drive safe back to Napoli port
