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.


Sorrento (independent exploration)
The coastal town of Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples. Explore the cobblestone side streets and public squares, such as Piazza Tasso and Piazza Antiche Mura with its lively atmosphere. Sorrento is a prime place for shoppers and ambience seekers alike. The bustling Corso Italia, a flower-lined main boulevard, showcases charming cafes and designer boutiques. Stroll down to the picture-perfect Sorrento pier and take in the fresh sea breezes or go beachcombing along the rocky shoreline.

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.

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.



Lunch:
Pause during your day to enjoy an authentic lunch using seasonal ingredients of the Campania region at a local restaurant. Sample menu includes cannelloni with ricotta cheese and spinach; chicken breast with tomato and mozzarella cheese; roasted potatoes and vegetables; dessert; mineral water; wine; American coffee.

Shopping:
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 ambience seekers alike. Later, at the cameo factory, skilled artisans apply techniques handed down for generations, intricately carving seashells or coral into beautiful jewelry and keepsake souvenirs
