Please note that since Pompeii is a popular area for tourists, we strongly recommend being cautious of your BELONGINGS

Positano - The busy central Piazza dei Mulini is connected to a narrow downhill path and some occasional flights of steps that lead to the seafront. At Piazza dei Mulini, you must leave the car as all streets leading to the waterfront are for pedestrians only. The only way to reach restaurants situated on the beach that serve fresh daily fish, is to go on foot! These streets also lead to the cathedral, ceramic shops, fruit vendors, and apparel retail shops. Positano is alive at night as well, with exotic nightclubs such as Music on the Rocks and various bars and cafes that remain open until the sun comes up. There is a short walk uphill to return to the car, ascending the mountain, returning to the main coastal road that leads to Amalfi

Amalfi - This coastal town is situated on a seafront port and a long stretch of pebbled beach. In front of the port of Amalfi, is the only bus station along the coast. Behind this square lies the main shopping street of Amalfi, that ends at the furthest and highest point of the town. Along the pedestrian street are various bars and cafes, not to mention the many shops selling limoncello, casual apparel, swimwear, gifts, basic groceries, and of course, ceramics. However, if one would like to see more than just shops, Amalfi has some interesting sights to explore such as: a spectacular cathedral along the coast, and a paper factory and its museum. There are also some highly recommended local restaurants, which your driver can suggest

 


2.-NAPLES AND POMPEII (8HRS)
Here is where the pizza Margherita was born - a city having many different colors and many different sides, renowned for the character of its people. Naples is situated in the bay where Mount Vesuvius forms the backdrop to the city that should be toured without wearing jewelry and money should be kept in front pockets rather than wallets or purses! Visit the museum of National Archaeology and the museum Capodimonte that exhibits works of the Renaissance and baroque masters (don't miss the impressive ceiling). See the cathedral of San Gennaro, impressing churches of San Lorenzo and Ges Nuovo, the charterhouse of San Martino and the cloister of Santa Chiara. There is the theatre of San Carlo and a nearby bar Gambrinus (the bar of the artists) that inherited its name from all the artists that used to drink there after exiting the theatre. There are various squares such as the Piazza Municipio where the castle of Maschio Angioino is located, and the vacant Royal Palace of the former Royal family that rests in Piazza Plebiscito
