Points of Interest

Map of Day 2: Sorrento

We recommend travelling away from the coast to visit the ancient ruins destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. Buried cities such as Pompeii and Herculaneum are both open to the public and are easily accessible via either a guided excursion or by train from Sorrento station. Although Pompeii is the most well-known, we believe Herculaneum is worth a visit. The site is incredibly well preserved enabling visitors to roam around once inhabited ancient villas and temples.

Days 3-5: Sorrento

Spend time exploring the beautiful seaside towns dotted along 34miles of the Amalfi Coast. All with something different to offer, they are perfect for a day or two away from the hustle and bustle of Sorrento’s centre. Amalfi is a pretty harbour town with colourful buildings adorning the cliff side and a small sandy beach perfect for an afternoon of relaxing. There are plenty of other hidden gems worth exploring including Atrani, Ravello and Maiori. Why not let someone else drive allowing you to relax and enjoy the journey on our Amalfi drive excursion?

For a tranquil afternoon take a boat trip to see the Blue Grotto, a karst cave that once within reveals stunning bright blue waters.
