While you’re in port in Naples, discover one of Europe’s most stunning shorelines on this independent day trip to Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast. Stop first to enjoy free time in colorful Sorrento before continuing to the Amalfi Coast, awarded UNESCO World Heritage status for its supremely beautiful landscapes. Admire the views and visit three of its best-known towns, Positano, Amalfi and Ravello, to explore as you wish, with meals and activities at your expense.
When your cruise ship docks at Naples, meet your driver at the port and hop into your air-conditioned minivan with the rest of your small group.Then, travel south to Sorrento, the cliff-top resort that’s a gateway to the UNESCO-listed Amalfi Coast, a 40-mile (64-km) stretch shore typified by steep cliffs and confetti-colored villages.On arrival, enjoy an hour of free time to explore picturesque Sorrento as you wish. Perhaps stroll the tangled lanes, enjoy the bars and shops in the central square, Piazza Tasso, or admire the 15th-century cathedral — it’s wholly up to you.Rejoin your minibus and have your camera ready as you drive along the Amalfi Coast, following the cliff roads between lemon groves and the shimmering Mediterranean below. Arrive in the gorgeous cliffside town of Positano, whose houses cascade down cliffs to a pebbly beach, and enjoy an hour of free time to shop at the chic stores, unwind over coffee or perhaps visit the Church of St Maria Assunta, famous for its tiled dome.Continue to the town of Amalfi and enjoy an hour to explore its sights at leisure. Perhaps peep inside its marble, 9th-century cathedral, browse the many shops hidden in the lanes or enjoy lunch (own expense) at one of the tempting restaurants. Your last stop is Ravello, higher up the cliffs. With an hour of free time here, maybe look around the impressive cathedral or visit the 13th-century Villa Rufolo (own expense), whose cliff-hugging gardens serve up jaw-dropping coastal views.Afterward, drive back to Naples where your shore excursion ends back at the cruise port.Worry-free Shore Excursion:We will ensure your timely return to the Naples port for this activity.
