Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

What you will visit:

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:
Considered Italy's most spectacular, scenic stretch of coastline, the roads on the Amalfi Coast are narrow and winding. (Passengers who suffer from motion sickness should take this into consideration.) Colorful villages are built into the terraced hillsides, cascading to the calm sea below, while aqueducts, villas and natural splendors dot the landscape.


Lunch:
We'll stop for a refreshing lunch break further down the coast at a local restaurant or hotel. Enjoy an authentic southern Italian lunch using fresh, seasonal ingredients of the Campania region. Sample menu: cannelloni with ricotta cheese and spinach; chicken breast with tomato and mozzarella cheese; roasted potatoes and vegetables; dessert; mineral water; wine; American coffee.

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

Special Notes:

From November through May, the Pompeii excavations close early; therefore, the routing of the tour may be altered and the photo stop for the Bay of Sorrento will not be done.

Due to traffic restrictions on the Amalfi Coast, this tour cannot be operated on pre-holidays and holidays. This tour will not be offered to Pacific Princess calls.

Due to local regulations and restrictions, an alternate stop on the Amalfi Coast (Minori, Maiori or Vietri sul Mare) will be made should a parking space not be available in Amalfi.

Lunch might be served in Sorrento or Pompeii instead.

The drive from Naples to the Amalfi Coast takes approximately two hours; the drive from Pompeii to Naples takes approximately 30 minutes. Roads on the Amalfi Coast are narrow and winding. Passengers who suffer from motion sickness should take this into consideration.

Admission to the Amalfi Cathedral is extra. Please dress conservatively. (No bare shoulders or shorts and mini-skirts.)

Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.

For security reasons, it is forbidden to enter inside Pompeii excavations with big bags, backpacks or trolleys. Please be aware that, since lockers are not available, it is recommended to leave them inside the coach..
