Historical Sea towns and scenic routes


13. Sorrento

Sorrento, known as Surrentum 2000 years ago, is situated at the southern extremity of the bay. For this strategic position it was a sort of guardian for all the ships coming from south, but also more exposed to attacks from all sort of invaders.
Today Sorrento is a pleasant touristic city out of the more chaotic Naples, offering interesting cultural visits (Museum Correale, Duomo, Cloister of Saint Francis etc) and a nice chance for shopping in the old alleys tasting its famous Limoncello (lemon liquor) or to appreciate its nice inlayed wood artifatcs.
It’s remarkable the view from its high cliffs on the bay of Naples or at the nearby island of Capri to which once was united. Roman ruins of Cape Sorrento are with a visit if few have time for bit longer stay, as they are out of town and require 1,5 hours extra.

Standard tour length: 2-4 hours
Visit to ruins: free entrance
Cost of the tour: 120-150 euros


Sorrento, Clauster of S. Francis

14. The Amalfi coast


The Amalfi coast, stretched by the cities of Naples and Salerno, is one of the wonders of all Italy and of the whole world, therefore under the protection of the UNESCO. So it's hard to give up a visit to these places once you are around. From the unique naturalistic scenery to its fascinating and rich history, the Amalfi coast is disseminated by little towns that arise from the sea level up to the edges of high peaks trough gentle terraces. The highlights are more than one: Amalfi, Ravello, Positano, Vietri etc. You have only to let us take there..

Tours from 4 to 8 hours.
Amalfi and Positano have some restrictions or difficulties due to some logistic constraints in summer time
Costs: depends on length ( full day tour-8 hours 200 euros)
