departure from Amalfi Coast
Daily excursion by Land
Departure from the Hotel by GT Bus to Herculaneum, a residential town buried in ashes by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 a.D. Guided visit to the archaeological excavations. Herculaneum was destroyed along with Pompeii in 79 AD, and was rediscovered in 1709. Il was e residential town without Pompeii’s commercial importance, surrounded by the villas of wealthy Romans.
After the visit departure to Sorrento. Free time for lunch.
Visit of Sorrento town centre: in the lanes of the old city centre, still untouched in spite of the progress and mass tourism, have survived churches and ancient monasteries, keepers of valuable memories. Centuries old palaces and Durazzo portals evidence the splendour of the noble families of Sorrento. Via S. Cesareo, the lively “decumanus”, is the beating heart of the town, with its many-colored shops, where tourists from every part of the world crowd. But the real architectonic jewel of the town is the fourteenth century Cloister of San Francesco, with crossed tuff arches of Arabian derivation, where the traditional concerts of the “Estate Musicale Sorrentina” take place. Departure to Amalfi driving along the untamed beauty of the Amalfi Coast, through the picturesque villages of Conca dei Marini, Furore and Praiano.
Photo stop at the famous Belvedere in Positano.
