Description

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

Your tour begins in Naples where you'll board an air-conditioned motorcoach for a 45-minute drive to Salerno where a motorlaunch will take you 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. Upon arrival in Amalfi, you'll have approximately 60 minutes of free time to explore the town or visit the Amalfi Cathedral. Church admission is extra and guests are asked to respect local custom and dress conservatively. (No bare shoulders or shorts and mini skirts).

The Amalfi Cathedral is a striking structure with 62 steps leading to its entrance. Its façade is Arabic-influenced Romanesque with a bold mix of stripes, arches, mosaics and textures. The bell tower and cupola are decorated with green and yellow tiles. The heavenly Cloister of Paradise is home to the tombs of Amalfi's wealthy merchants and features Moorish styling in white marble. Take a stroll around the courtyard and see its lovely Mediterranean garden as well as the ancient artworks that grace the walkways. The cloister leads into the Basilica of the Crucifix where you can see some amazing frescoes. The cathedral's museum and treasury is located in the basilica. The Crypt of St. Andrew is located in an altar decorated with beautiful Baroque murals dating from 1660.

Upon return in Salerno, you'll board a motorcoach for an hour and 90-minute drive to the resort seaside town of Sorrento where lunch will be served at a local restaurant. Enjoy an authentic meal using fresh, seasonal ingredients of the Campania region. Your lunch is immediately followed by an hour of free time to spend at your leisure.

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. Get off the main path on to the cobblestone side streets and public squares, such as Piazza Tasso and Piazza Antica for great atmosphere.

Corso Italia is Sorrento's flower-lined main boulevard and a window-shoppers delight. Here 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.

You'll re-board the motorcoach following your visit to Sorrento and time permitting stop at a cameo factory, en route to Naples, where artisans apply skills handed down for generations, intricately carving seashell or coral into beautiful jewelry-true works of art and keepsake souvenirs.

Your tour comes to its completion back in Naples after a 90-minute drive where your ship is docked and awaiting your return.
