TOUR DESCRIPTION

***Pick up and drop off only at Naples port***

Discover the most fascinating sights in Naples area with our Pompeii and Positano Shore Excursion.

Duration: about 8 hours (including a break for lunch)

If your cruise is stopping in Naples, then you can’t miss Pompeii and Positano. This tour has been designed so that you will explore these two amazing sights in the most comfortable, informative, and entertaining way.

We will send a driver to pick you up at your ship, and you’ll start your day trip in Pompeii, where you’ll meet your local expert: a professional guide who will be in charge of showing you the beauties of this extremely important archaeological site. Pompeii is a unique place: it’s an ancient Roman town that was buried by the eruption of the Vesuvius in the year 79 AD and then forgotten until its discovery in 1748. The archaeologists who dug it up could not believe their eyes: it was like the town had been “frozen” by the ashes of the volcano, and then returned to their time in great conditions. Because of the way that it had been buried, the town was incredibly well preserved. Walking through the streets of Pompeii will give you an idea of how life was in the 1st century AD. You’ll see the public baths where the Romans bathed every day, the roads where the ancient Pompeiians walked before the catastrophe killed the ones who could not escape, the temples where Jupiter and the other ancient gods were worshipped.

You’ll also see many amazing frescoes: wall paintings that decorate the houses and the public buildings, which are the biggest and most important examples of ancient Roman painting.

Your Pompeii tour will last about two hours; then, it will be time for lunch. Your local guide will happily recommend a delicious pizzeria or, if you prefer, a very good restaurant before you continue towards Positano, the “pearl” of the Amalfi Coast.

This town is simply one of the most beautiful and picturesque places in the world: you’ll wander through the small alleys that, from the top of the hill, lead to the blue Mediterranean sea. Positano is also called the “vertical” city, since it’s almost entirely built into the slope of the Lattari mountains, and many areas are connected to each other only by steps. You’ll see picturesque small houses painted in pastel colors, overlooking the marvelous Li Galli islands, and you’ll have an unforgettable view of the Amalfi Coast from one of the many terraces where you can stop to take pictures or enjoy a drink.

Very few places in the world are as breath-taking as Positano: your guide will show you the highlights of the city and then give you some free time for shopping since this lovely town is also famous for its linen products and colorful clothes. Enjoy the smell of the fresh lemons, tan under the warm Italian sun, and breathe in all the beauty you can during this wonderful shore excursion.

At the end of the tour your driver will take you back to your ship.

The order of the sights visited might vary because of traffic-related reasons.
