Naples & Amalfi Coast

Things to know about Naples & Amalfi Coast

Naples, the capital of the Campania region, is the largest and the most visited among the cities of Southern Italy. It is a beautiful city with thousand faces to be discovered: rich of myths and legends, culture and traditions, a place of great touristic interest, quoted in books, songs and movies.
 
The historic centre of Naples preserves historical and artistic treasures of such importance that has been declared World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Walking through the picturesque streets of the centre you can cross twenty centuries of history, admiring monuments of different styles and periods: the ruins of the Greek and Roman colonies, visitable in the Museums and in the archaeological areas such as San Lorenzo Maggiore; the Cathedral, which houses the famous Chapel of San Gennaro (the saint patron of the city), and the Castel dell’Ovo; the Royal Palace, which dominates the Piazza del Plebiscito, and various other monuments and attractions such as the Monastery of Santa Chiara and the Castel Nuovo, also called "Maschio Angioino".
 
Naples is a city that surprises the visitors with its artistic and historic jewels, and with its breathtaking views of the Gulf of Naples. World-famous for its culinary traditions, Naples boasts a myriad of gastronomic specialties: first of all the pizza… But let’s not forget the pastiera, the sfogliatella (shell-shaped pastries filled with cream), the babbà and, last but least, the mozzarella.
 
Naples is also a great starting point for exciting surroundings excursions: from here, in fact, you can easily reach the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the ancient Roman cities destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius over two thousand years ago. Or, you can visit the enchanting island of Capri, the famous Royal Palace of Caserta and, moreover, the picturesque towns of the Amalfi Coast: Positano, Ravello and Amalfi.

Beautiful landscape and smooth process!

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Amalfi Coast (Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri). Although a short stay, one night, the hotel was beautiful. The boat tour of Blue Grotto was awesome! The only thing we could have been informed more about, was that the meal at the hotel was a "dress-up"; event as it was a five-course meal. Other than that... excellent trip altogether! Glad we spent the money to do it!

Pompeii, Blue Grotto, Sorrento to Amalfi drive and Hotel Excelsior location on the mountain-side above Amalfi were very exciting

We had a beautiful 4 night tour from Rome to Sorrento to Amalfi. The activities on the first day in Naples and Pompei were interesting, the second day in Capri was unbelievable with our visit to the Blue Grotto and Anacapri, where we even went on a 20 minute ride on a cable car to the top of a mountain for a magnificent view . The third day we went to Amalfi and after a 2 hr bus ride we were taken to our hotel up the mountain , where our guided tour ended and we were on our own to visit the nearby towns. The 5th day was a little tedious as we had to check out from room at 11.00, pick up from hotel at 3.00 p.m, taken to Pompeii to get our transportation back to Rome. It was a long day but we had the time to recap our pleasant 5 day tour. Very good value.

Good day

Full day excursion taking us to Pompeii in the morning and Vesuvius in the afternoon. Prompt pick up with clear instructions on where that would be. Good guide providing lots of information. Well timed and value for money.

Excelente servicio.

Todo el servicio fue perfecto. la puntualidad, el transporte, la habilidad de Genaro el chofer para conducir con seguridad por todas esas carreteras tan estrechas y llenas de curvas, pero sobre todo la amabilidad, conocimiento y acompañamiento de Clelia nuestra guía que fue sinceramente excelente. Los sitios visitados fueron Positano, Amalfi y Ravello, bellísimos lugares que quedarán siempre en nuestra memoria. Felicidades!!!

One of the most beautiful places in the world

The tour was amazing. Angela and Chez were great. They arranged lunch with a window table overlooking Positano. We have never dined with a more beautiful view. The Amalfi coast is breathtakingly beautiful.

Amazing tour!

We were picked up in Sorrento by our guide and driven to Pompeii, We purchased the tickets and headphones and got into Pompeii very quickly. It was quite crowded but our guide was able to take us to places quickly without the crowds. It is a huge site so it was lovely to have a guide and then you can take yourself back again and wander round at your own time. We then had a delicious lunch in a restaurant outside the ruins. We then went back in the miini bus to Herculaneum. These ruins are much smaller and less crowded.We had a lovely time going round them and learning its history. Back into the bus to Sorrento.A nice drive along the coast. A very good day.
