Sorrento, The Amalfi Drive, Positano & Amalfi.
Amalfi Coast Shore Excursion. AST#2 – Amalfi Cruise Port Shore Excursion –
Amalfi Coast Shore Excursion Option designed for all the guests who wish to fully enjoy the amazing scenery of the Amalfi Coast & Sorrento from the Cruise Port of Amalfi. Your private driver will meet you on the pier in Amalfi following disembarkation ( tendered ashore ) with a leading name clearly displayed on an Amalfi Coast Destination meeting sign and will proceed for a truly memorable experience visiting the most famous and magical settings overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea.
To reach the international town of Sorrento you need to drive the coastal road to its furthest point. Spectacular views of the entire bay of Naples and the Island of Capri (that was once joined to Sorrento) are revealed as the Amalfi coast road emerges from over the mountain cliff. A short drive through the town before you arrive in the centre of a major shopping mall for the local people as well as tourists, with many shops (normally open all day, every day in the summer, but during the low season they open between 9:00am – 1:00pm, then 4:00pm – 8:00pm, approximately). Sorrento seemed to inherit the traditional Neapolitan pizza from their neighboring city, therefore the Pizzeria’s in town are highly recommended. Sorrento, also being a city from the past, has an interesting history museum Correale di Terranova that can be visited in the morning.
The busy central Piazza dei Mulini is connected to a narrow downhill path and some occasional flights of steps that lead to the seafront. At Piazza dei Mulini, you must leave the car as all streets leading to the waterfront are for pedestrians only. The only way to reach restaurants situated on the beach that serve fresh daily fish, is to go on foot! These streets also lead to the cathedral, ceramic shops, fruit vendors, and apparel retail shops. There is a short walk uphill to return to the car, ascending the mountain, returning to the main coastal road that leads to Amalfi.
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.
