The three locations that you will visit during this eight hours tour are so diverse between eaxh other that you will have the sensation to have been on three separate tours in one day!
The tour starts in the colourful city of Salerno, where taking a walk in both the main road and the narrow alleys (the so called Merchants’ Street is worth of a particular mention) is simply a joy, both in summer and perhaps especially in winter, since there is a great tradition of Christmas lights every year in the city
After Salerno you move to the spectacular Amalfi, which is directly connected to Salerno by a coastal road that offers a drive full of wonderful views.. Once in town you can admire what was once was one of the centers for trading in Italy, since during the middle age Amalfi was known as one of the four Maritime Republics
The last stop will be in the ancient Pompeii, where you can walk among the ruins of a once great city destroyed in a matter of a few hours by the eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 AD.
So if this sounds like the tour for you don’t waste any time and book now!
Salerno is an ancient city in Campania (southwestern Italy) and is the capital of the namesake province. It is located on the Gulf of Salerno on the Tyrrhenian Sea.
Salerno is often overlooked but it’s a lively city and a crucial crossroads. The busy port town is situated between two of the best-known seaside areas of Campania – the Amalfi Coast and the Cilento National Park. Salerno was the scene of the Allied landings during World War II and suffered much damage, but today the city has become an important commercial center which boasts one of the largest seaports on the Tyrrhenian coast. White it has a prevalently modern appearance, it still retains an interesting and characteristic historic center with a maze of charming alleyways and a wealth of beautiful buildings and monuments.
For travelers Salerno is an interesting point for touring around as it is in a central location and enjoys a hip nightlife, and offers shops, restaurants, museums and monuments. Its main draw is its transportation network: Salerno has a major railway station with excellent train connections to Naples, Rome, Paestum and the south of Italy. During the summer season ferries, depart from Salerno’s port to reach Amalfi, Positano and Capri. The SITA regional bus lines conveniently connect Salerno to the Capodichino airport in Naples, the central train station in Naples, and the the Amalfi Coast towns of Vietri sul Mare, Cetara, Minori, Maiori and Amalfi itself.
It is just one of its fourteen towns, but it has such an historical relevance that it gave the name to the entire coast.
This is Amalfi, known as one of the four ancient “Maritime Republics”, together with Pisa, Genova and Venice, called this way because they were the most important ports in Italy for the commercial routes with the east. The white houses separated from each other by narrow alleys and archways form a welcoming, charming little town where you can embrace the history and the traditions of a place that for many years has been considered the source of wealth of the Italian territory.
Once at the main square the Duomo of Sant’Andrea will simply leave you speechless, with its moorish inspired belltower and its incredible staircase at the top of which you will marvel at view of the square and truly feel the grandeur of this ancient town.
It is almost ironic how thanks to such a devastating event like the eruption of mount Vesuvius in 79 D.C., today we have the possibility to visit one of the most fascinating locations in the world.
Once in the ruins you really have the sensation to be transported nearly two millennia back in history, the city has been almost perfectly preserved by the layers of crystallized ashes remained by the Vesuvius, to the point that you will even see the casts of the citizens of Pompeii frozen in time in the last moments of their lives.
The many frescos, most of which are still very well preserved, will gradually tell you the story of this ancient city, you will learn about the way of the people that lived there, you will get to know the names and the lives of notorius inhabitants of the city, you will see with your eyes what where the customs, the virtues and the vices of a community that on the fatal day of August the 24th, 79 AD., met their end by the eruption of mount Vesuvius, which with very little warning wiped the population of this bustling and flourishing city.
