Southern Italy: Private Pompeii, Amalfi & Positano Day Trip

6. Southern Italy: Private Pompeii, Amalfi & Positano Day Trip

Pompeii is a town located in the plains at the eastern slope of Vesuvius, to the right of the lower reaches of the river Sarno. One of the largest archaeological areas in the world and Unesco World Heritage Site, it is a popular tourist destination, also thanks to the presence of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary. At the archaeological site, you'll find that the ancient Roman city buried by the sudden eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD has been brought back to light. 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. Afterwards, you'll visit Amalfi, an internationally renowned tourist destination and famous for its incomparable beauty and mild climate. The town on the southern coast of the Sorrento Peninsula, known as the Amalfi Coast, is enclosed by the foothills of the mountains of Lattari. White houses and narrow streets, many of them with steps, characterize the village, a typical example of Mediterranean architecture. It is an archiepiscopal seat. The cathedral, dedicated to St. Andrew, is the most impressive building in Amalfi: a rare beauty, built in the 9th-century and refurbished in 1203 after the Arab-Norman style, and restored several times after, has solemn steps to the side of which rises the bell tower (12th to 13th-century), which preserves intact the polychromy, typical of the Romanesque architecture of the area. The valley, for its wildlife and environmental characteristics, is now a nature-oriented reserve, declared a World Heritage Site, and will enchant on pleasant walks. At 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 typical spherical shell houses, is a unique urban and architectural complex, with long steps, narrow alleys and watchtowers along the coastal ridge.
