Itinerary of Tour
You'll meet your English speaking licensed guide holding a sign with your name on at meeting point. The tour starts at the port of Naples or Sorrento and you can get the jetfoil to Capri. Capri is a lovely island in the bay of Naples. It's not big, that's why you can have a nice taste of it in a day. Once there, in Marina Grande, you will take the funicular, a sort of cable car, and reach the main village called Capri Town in only 4 min. You will get to the "piazzetta", a little square which is the heart of the island, the meeting place for locals and visitors. Capri town is a pedestrian area. So from the square you can go for a nice walking tour with your guide. Getting from north to the south part of the island, you will visit the famous "Caesar Augustus gardens". A lovely park that offers you very beautiful spots for great pictures. After the gardens you can enjoy your leisure time. Don't forget that Capri town is a paradise for shopping. After this free time, you will take the ferry back to Sorrento port.
You'll be on board of a Minibus/Minivan for a 5-minute ride to the charming village of Sorrento overlooking the Bay of Naples and offering breathtaking views. In Sorrento, you'll enjoy an authentic Pizza lunch using seasonal ingredients of the Campania region at a local restaurant. Your lunch is followed by free time for a photo opportunity . Corso Italia is Sorrento's flower-lined main boulevard, here you'll find local shops, designer boutiques and cafés.
Later on, you will have opportunity to have lunch with the famous Neapolitan Pizza . YOU HAVEN’T HAD PIZZA UNTIL YOU’VE HAD NEAPOLITAN PIZZA. Our cheeses are fine Italian cheeses made from high quality milks, and the mozzarella is also known as “white gold”, for its premium quality and taste. The crust releases the flavor of well-baked bread. The sauce delivers the characteristic aroma of a fresh and fragrant mediterranean plate. 90 seconds in our wood-fired ovens at close to 1000 degrees bake it to perfection. Neapolitan Pizza is magic. Neapolitan Pizza exalts the flavors, and celebrates the senses. Each bite distributes an array of flavors, an arrangement of textures. Neapolitan Pizza is fine pizza. Pizza with a capital N. Pure ingredients. Rare freshness. Classical simplicity. Historical heritage. Neapolitan Pizza is the meal of choice for health-conscious foodies and epicureans alike.
The next step of your tour continues with Pompeii which before the eruption was known as a holiday community for high society. It had a forum, amphitheater, gymnasium, shops and an aqueduct that delivered water for irrigation, springs and private baths. Some of the ruins are remarkably preserved with detailed mosaics and frescoes decorating the interiors of villas. Here you'll discover the archeological excavations of a lost city buried deep beneath the ash when Mt. Vesuvius violently erupted in 79 A.D. It was a monumental natural disaster that killed thousands and entombed the city under ash. Explore the grounds on this two-hour guided walking tour, as your guide describes the remarkably preserved remains that hint at daily life-how they entertained, decorated and lived.
After our last site of the day, we will drive you back and you can reminisce about your incredible day mixed with ancient Roman history and the present day beauty of one of the most famous coastlines in the world!
