Enjoy a very scenic and relaxing excursion, experiencing Italy's most famous coastline by motor launch, with minimal walking involved, and time within the beautiful village of Sorrento. After an approximate one-hour drive by coach, you'll arrive at the town of Salerno, located at the very end of the Amalfi Coast. There you'll board a private motor launch for a 45 minute cruise, viewing the Dolomitic cliffs, which have been sculpted by nature into fantastic shapes. Amalfi is situated at the mouth of a deep gorge along the coast. Learn how this charming town was a major shipping port during the Middle Ages and an independent maritime state.
Enjoy a narrated walk around the town center of Amalfi, with your guide, who will explain the history and architecture of the Cathedral of St. Andrew as you marvel at the exterior architecture, a mix of Moorish and early Gothic design with 11th-century bronze doors from Constantinople. Enjoy some free time on your own in Amalfi for shopping or relaxing before cruising back to Salerno where your coach will be waiting to drive you to Sorrento. With its luxuriant vegetation and sun drenched climate, Sorrento became a favorite resort of wealthy Romans. Experience this cliff-top setting, with an imposing Duomo, distinctive for its 13th-century cloister, and a charming, flower filled town, all there for you to explore. Enjoy lunch with wine in a local restaurant in Sorrento before returning back to your ship.
In case of bad weather conditions and/or rough seas, the cruise to Amalfi will be canceled, and instead be operated by motorcoach. Due to traffic restrictions of the Sorrento center, a short walk from the motorcoach drop off point to the main center and vice versa will be required. During summer months expect extreme heat, crowded venues and long lines. We recommend that you dress in layers and bring bottled water. Tour is not offered on winter sailings.
