Cruise to breathtaking Positano and explore at your leisure before returning to Amalfi for a tour of glorious St. Andrew Cathedral and enjoying more free time.
After departing from the pier in a boat, you will cruise west along the stunning Amalfi coast.Hailed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the rugged coast is physically beautiful, naturally diverse and emotionally moving all the way to Positano, where you will disembark.
Upon arrival, you’ll have approximately 90 minutes during which you might browse the smart boutiques for cotton clothing, linger over a glass of wine, or simply take in the spectacular views.Positano clings to the side of a steep cliff, so it’s extraordinarily photogenic and more vertical than it is horizontal.
Amazingly, Positano was little more than a humble fishing village until it became popular in the 1950s with writers such as John Steinbeck and after a new road was built linking it to Sorrento.Now, it’s an absolute must-see when on the Amalfi coast.
Amalfi is also wonderfully enchanting, as you will discover after cruising back to tour St. Andrew Cathedral.Built in the early 1200s alongside a still-standing 9th-century church, the cathedral is dramatically located atop a flight of 62 stairs.Be sure to note its medieval bronze doors, the first of their kind in Italy.
Afterwards, during your free time, you might wander about the sun-splashed piazzas or gaze out over the Mediterranean.The original city of Amalfi lies somewhere offshore, as it slid into the sea during the earthquake of 1343.

Enjoy an enlightening tour of Ravello’s crown jewel, Villa Rufolo, and then free time to explore wherever you please in this beautiful medieval village.
After departing from the pier, you will drive inland toward Ravello, enjoying some of Italy’s most dramatic scenery as you ascend into the mountains.Upon arriving, you will first visit Villa Rufolo, a monumental complex of buildings that during its heyday in the 13th century was described as having “more rooms than there are days in the year.”
Instantly recognized for its iconic tower, the Moorish-influenced villa is absolutely stunning and its countless restorations have only added to its appeal and intrigue.Richard Wagner was so moved by the well area alone that it inspired him to compose the second act of his opera “Parsifal.”The villa’s Garden of the Soul is equally enchanting.
More spectacular sights await you below in the medieval village of Ravello which you are free to experience at your leisure.During your free time, you might visit the Romanesque cathedral on the main square, a reminder that Ravello was once an important bishopric.Built in 1087, the cathedral features a rare bronze door adorned with more than 50 panels decorated with figures in relief.
As you stroll Ravello’s cobblestone streets you can’t help but be impressed by the sheer beauty found in every direction.You would be in good company, as Ravello has inspired the likes of D.H. Lawrence, Gore Vidal, Virginia Woolf and artist M.C. Escher, who was heavily influenced by its Moorish decorations.after approximately 1 hour, you will re-join your coach and return to the pier in Amalfi.

Delight in the architectural splendor of hilltop Ravello, an ideal prelude to an enlightening wine tasting at a family-owned winery in nearby Tramonti.
After departing from the pier, you will drive inland toward Ravello, enjoying some of Italy’s most dramatic scenery as you ascend into the mountains.Upon arriving, you may visit the Duomo, a Romanesque cathedral on the main square.Built in 1087, the cathedral features rare bronze doors adorned with dozens of panels decorated with figures in relief.
You will then browse Villa Rufolo, a monumental complex of buildings that during its heyday in the 13th century was described as having “more rooms than there are days in the year.”Instantly recognized for its iconic tower, the Moorish-influenced villa is absolutely stunning and its countless restorations have only added to its appeal and intrigue.

Cruise the awe-inspiring Amalfi coast and explore the interior of the Emerald Grotto, a seaside cavern filled with oddly shaped stalagmites and stalactites and gorgeous green water.
After departing from the pier in a boat, you will cruise west along the stunning Amalfi coast, a Mediterranean landscape so physically beautiful, naturally diverse and emotionally moving that it has been deemed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.The perspective from the sea is even more magnificent than the perspective from land, as it affords you a full panoramic view.
Upon arriving at the entrance to the Emerald Grotto, you will board a smaller vessel and proceed inside.Expect to be amazed by the bizarrely shaped stalagmites and stalactites and the water’s emerald sheen, which is caused by refracted sunlight through an underwater opening.Other light reflecting off the water’s surface casts a mysterious, almost supernatural glow on the walls of the cavern.
There is even an underwater nativity scene just below the water’s surface.The ceramic scene was made in nearby Vietri sul Mare and placed in the grotto in 1956.
The Emerald Grotto, also known as the Grotta di Smeraldo, was once dry, but earthquakes and shifting currents filled the interior with water long ago.Although the grotto was well known in the 19th century, it was somehow forgotten until local sailor Luigi Buonocore re-discovered it in 1932.It has been wildly popular ever since.

After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a drive along one of Europe’s most awe-inspiring roads, the circuitous Amalfi Drive.The road is a joy to travel as it threads the high, rocky sea cliffs and passes through one pastel-hued village after another, all clinging precariously to the steep coastline.The views are so spectacular and the landscape so definitively Mediterranean that the Amalfi coast has been deemed a World Heritage Site.
Arriving in Sorrento nearly 2 hours later, you’ll find a city of Renaissance palazzi, Romanesque churches and charming pedestrian lanes.Your first stop will be to watch a demonstration of intarsia or wood inlay.The craft has long been associated with Sorrento, and the resulting mosaics of various exotic woods are intricate works of art that are used to adorn furniture, wall panels and music boxes on a smaller scale.
Then, following a brief orientation of Sorrento, you will enjoy free time to have lunch and further explore on your own.While you might prefer indoor activities such as browsing the museums and boutiques, be sure to leave time to pause and drink in the scenery.Perched on a cliff, the city is wonderfully vibrant and immensely appealing, especially when you’re sitting in a sidewalk café with a signature Limoncello in hand.What better way to toast Sorrento before returning to Amalfi?

Explore the excavated ruins in Pompeii and then visit a nearby winery for a tasting of wines produced from grapes grown on the slopes of mighty Mount Vesuvius.
After departing from the pier, you will settle in for a leisurely drive to Pompeii, a Roman town forever known for the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius that buried it under ash and pumice in 79 A.D. As you will see meandering about, excavations have unearthed a snapshot of life here nearly 2,000 year ago.
Buildings are largely intact, frescoes adorn the villas and everyday objects are scattered about, just as they were when the volcano erupted.Expect to see ancient baths, temples, shops and residences with intricate mosaic floors.It’s an eye-opening look into ancient life.
Following a bit of free time in Pompeii, you will then proceed to Sorrentino Vini, a family-owned winery at the foot of Mount Vesuvius.The vineyards are located on the volcano’s southwest side, where numerous lava flows over the centuries have enriched the soil.
You will have the opportunity to sample several wines produced at Sorrentino Vini while dining on local specialties such as Gragnano pasta Scarpareillo, salami, cheeses and homemade bread.The wine selections typically include a white Lacryma Christi and the only Lacryma Christi Vesuvian sparkling wine entirely produced on Mount Vesuvius.
You may also taste other wines made with native varieties of Caprettone and Falanghina grapes such as an amber-colored Fior Di Ginestre.Following the tasting, you will return to the pier.
