Sorrento, Positano & Amalfi
For shoppers, beach-lovers, architecture buffs and shutterbugs.
A NOTE ABOUT DRIVING TIMES
More than half of the day is spent driving (about 5 hrs in total.)
In the resort town of Sorrento you will discover a village brimming with character and overflowing with pretty streets and charming people. Here the ancient Greeks and Romans found inspiration for their art and industry, and it is here that you will find inspiration for the shopping spree of your dreams! Sorrento is known for its fine porcelain, woodworking, mosaics and furniture.
This coastal town is situated on a seafront port and a long stretch of pebbled beach. In front of the port of Amalfi, is the only bus station along the coast. Behind this square lies the main shopping street of Amalfi, that ends at the furthest and highest point of the town. Along the pedestrian street are various bars and cafes, not to mention the many shops selling limoncello, casual apparel, swimwear, gifts, basic groceries, and of course, ceramics. However, if one would like to see more than just shops, Amalfi has some interesting sights to explore such as: a spectacular cathedral along the coast, and a paper factory and its museum. There are also some highly recommended local restaurants, which your driver can suggest.
Along the Amalfi coast a picture postcard comes to life as the vast expanse of the blue sea gives way to the craggy coast, dotted with outcroppings of rock, lush vegetation and colourful villages. In Positano you’ll feel like a jetsetter, surrounded by the elegance of designer shops and seaside cafés. Be sure to sample some limoncello, a tangy liqueur made from the celebrated local lemons.
