Full description
Pompeii is a town located on the plain at the eastern slopes of Vesuvius, to the right of the lower reaches of the river Sarno. One of the largest archaeological areas in the world and a Unesco World Heritage Site, it is a very popular tourist destination, thanks to the presence of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary. The ancient Roman city, buried by the sudden eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, has been brought to the light in the archeological site.. The rain of ash and lava and the resulting thick layer of dust have crystallized, preserving Pompeii for centuries. Brought to the surface, Pompeii is the most visited archaeological site in the world. The town with the same name of the peninsula is situated on a tufaceous terrace, overlooking the sea on the northern slopes of the mountains Lattari with gardens, vast plantations of citrus and major hotels, alternating with typical mansions. Sorrento emerged as a popular resort in the mid-700, welcoming notable visitors. It seems that the name "Sorrento" is derived from the name "Sirenia," meaning sirens, the legendary creatures that the Homeric tradition handed down as a half woman half fish, who bewitched the sailors with their songs, making them thus wrecked against the rocks. The center of the Amalfi Coast, Positano is located on the slopes of the mountains Comune and Sant'Angelo a Tre Pizzi. Thanks to the mild climate and the beauty of the landscape, Positano has been a resort since the Roman Empire, as attested by the discovery of a villa and more recent discoveries, dating back to 2004. From the village, the many typical "scalinate”, steps, come down to the beaches, the Spiaggia Grande, and the Fornillo, both within walking distance; others are La Porta, Arienzo and San Pietro Laurito, all reachable mainly by the sea. The town, with houses with typical spherical shell, is a unique urban and architectural complex with long steps, narrow alleys and watchtowers along the coastal ridge.

THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT, THE DRIVER ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL

The driver was able to get excited about us from the first hour demonstrating a great tourist and cultural preparation with a friendly, friendly and sociably high approach. We have no words to express our gratitude. At the end of the tour we considered it almost as if it were an old dear friend and we will certainly request it for other occasions or even for the same tour. We will spread to our friends and acquaintances this service that we did not know and which seems to be unmissable
