Sorrento Shore Excursion: Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi Day Trip
Tour description provided by Viator
The beautiful beaches and coastal towns of the Campania region await you on this private shore excursion. While you’re in port in Sorrento, head off to explore the beautiful villages of Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi on a full-day independent trip with a private driver. Admire spectacular views of the entire Bay of Naples and the Island of Capri and see top attractions such as the stunning Cloister of San Francesco in Sorrento and the Church of St Maria Assunta in Positano.
When your cruise ships docks in Sorrento, your private driver will pick you up from the port and drive you along the breathtaking Amalfi Coast to the heart of Sorrento. Take a stroll independently along the old city center, still untouched in spite of the city’s development, and explore ancient churches and monasteries. See the stunning Cloister of San Francesco and admire its beautiful Arabian-style arches before exploring the Correale di Terranova Museum (own expense), where you'll find Greek and Roman archaeological findings and medieval marble work.
Next, it's on to the village of Positano, known as the jewel of the Amalfi Coast. Explore the central Piazza dei Mulini, connected to a narrow downhill path and a few flights of steps that lead to the seafront. It is a must-see place to meet the natural beauty as well as the life and culture of Positano. Follow narrow streets leading to the Church of St Maria Assunta and admire this great example of medieval art.
Continue your trip to the charming village of Amalfi, situated on the seafront. Explore Piazza Duomo, were you'll find various bars and cafés. Your driver will happily recommend a great place for you to enjoy a traditional Italian lunch (own expense). Then, discover the beautiful Cathedral of St Andrew, named after the patron saint and protector of Amalfi. Visit the 13th-century Museo della Carta (Museum of Handmade Paper) (own expense), where you'll find original paper presses still preserved and in full working order.
In the afternoon, your driver will collect you for your return journey to the Sorrento port.
