What you will visit:

Amalfi Coast Cruise
See a perspective on the Amalfi Coast that most visitors miss when you enjoy a 45-minute motor launch cruise along the gorgeous Amalfi coastline. This 31-mile (50-kilometer) stretch of shore is so picturesque that it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 for its magnificent natural beauty, majestic scenery, magnificent cliffs and historical importance. You'll cruise along the bright blue waters from Salerno, and with each curve of the coastline, you'll be treated to stony outposts, quaint villages, tiled church steeples and bougainvillea-dotted hillsides.
The Amalfi Cathedral (optional)
Found in Amalfi's Piazza del Duomo, this striking structure has 62 stairs leading to its entrance. Its Romanesque façade is Arabic-influenced with a bold mix of stripes, arches, mosaics and textures. Take a stroll around the courtyard and see its lovely Mediterranean garden. The cloister leads into the Basilica of the Crucifix with amazing frescoes. The cathedral's museum and treasury is located in the basilica. Church admission is extra. Please dress conservatively.
Pompeii
The eruption of Vesuvius in 79 A.D. was a monumental natural disaster that killed thousands and entombed the city of Pompeii. A visit to this UNESCO World Heritage Site is an opportunity to view a moment in time preserved for more than 2,000 years in this lost city buried deep beneath the ash. Walk among the ruins that, in exquisite detail, paint a picture of daily Roman life. Known as a vacation community for high society, some of the ruins are remarkably preserved, with elaborately detailed mosaics and colorful frescoes decorating the interiors of wealthy homeowners' villas.

What you will see along the way:
Cruise the storied Amalfi Coast. Costiera Amalfitana in Italian, Amalfi's coastline ribbons along the southern shore of Salerno Gulf. This popular destination, renowned for its breathtaking beauty, was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site cultural landscape in 1997. Drink in the spectacular vistas and marvel at the greatness of the Dolomitic Cliffs towering out of the turquoise sea in spectacular shapes, the sweeping vistas, and the windswept beaches.

Photo Opportunity:
Fill your camera with breathtaking images on a scenic 60-minute cruise along the gorgeous Amalfi coastline. It's an ideal photo opportunity for shots of the rocky outcroppings and verdant grottos dotting the cliffs.

Lunch:
In Pompeii, lunch will be served at a local restaurant or hotel. Enjoy an authentic meal using fresh, seasonal ingredients of the Campania region.

Shopping:

Cameo Factory
Find a beautiful keepsake souvenir at a local cameo factory. Here, skilled artisans apply techniques handed down for generations, intricately carving seashells or coral into beautiful jewelry and true works of art.
