Description

Your tour begins in Naples where you'll board an air-conditioned motorcoach for a scenic 75-minute drive to the stunning resort of Sorrento. Here you'll have approximately 120-minutes of free time to explore the village. Sorrento boasts one of the biggest shopping districts along the Amalfi Coast-from lace sheets and fine furniture to table linens and handcrafted pottery. It's a prime place for shoppers and ambiance seekers alike. Explore the cobblestone side streets and public squares, such as Piazza Tasso and Piazza Antiche Mura for great atmosphere.

Corso Italia is Sorrento's flower-lined main boulevard and a window-shoppers delight where you'll find charming local shops, designer boutiques and cafés. Pick up souvenirs, such as a bottle of the local Limoncello liquor or spend time enjoying the festive ambiance. Sorrento offers ample photo opportunities with marvelous views that overlook the Bay of Naples. Stroll down to the Sorrento Pier and take in the fresh sea breezes or go beachcombing along the rocky shoreline.

A wine and food pairing at a scenic vineyard located on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius is your next adventure. A vineyard tour introduces you to the geologic conformation of Vesuvius slopes, the rare characteristics of volcanic soil and a marvelous microclimate come together in one of Italy's most interesting wine producing regions. You'll also visit the cellars for insight into the process by which the grapes are turned into the vintner's liquid creations.

Afterwards, you'll savor a snack of local specialties like bruschetta with Vesuvian olive oil, taste of salami and cheese. Enjoy a Lacryma Christi White, Red and Rose, Aglianico, Falanghina, and Apricot grappa distilled from the grape pips from Vesuvius.

Re-board your coach for the scenic narrated drive back to Naples on the autostrada. Your experienced guide will fill you in on the the vibrant history of the capital city of Italy's Campania region. As you gaze out over the country's second most populated city, you'll be continually intrigued by the hustle and bustle of local life belied by the seeming serenity of the dormant Mt. Vesuvius and the vast sweep of blue that is the stunning bay. This captivating full-day tour has it all.
