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 Sorrento, 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 is considered, without any hyperbole, one of the gems of the Italian country.
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.
Just across the Bay from Naples lies the Sorrento Peninsula, perhaps the most stunning stretch of coastline anywhere in the world.
For 2000 years, visitors from all over the world have been attracted to Sorrento by breath-taking sunsets and fragrances of orange and lemon gardens. Its main attractions, beside its wonderful location, are the little historic centre: a wonderful place to get lost in its narrow streets and alleyways where you will discover colourful shops, quaint trattorias and the true essence of Sorrento; but also the panoramic Park Villa Comunale and the picturesque fisher port Marina Grande.
With its beautiful location on the north coast of the peninsula, the small community of Sorrento makes a good base for exploring the region’s highlights: to the south is the best of the peninsula’s unspoilt countryside, to the east is the Amalfi Coast, to the north lie Pompeii and other archaeological sites, and offshore lies the fabled island of Capri. It is hard to imagine a more perfect setting than this.
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.
