Your Star Cars English speaking driver, will pick you up at the port of Naples at 7:30am with a super-equipped Mercedes with all the comforts, air-conditioned and of course fully insured to guarantee your maximum safety.
The first stop of our shore excursion from the port of Naples will be in Positano, a fantastic place, famous all over the world for its urban conformation where the houses seem to lean against each other. Here there will be free time for a walk through the narrow streets and stairways overlooked by local craft shops, linen clothing, ceramics and handmade leather sandals.
You'll can visit the Roman Villa found under the Church of Santa Maria Assunta and remained buried for almost ten centuries, and the beach Spiaggia Grande, one of the most beautiful in the world.
After Positano we will head towards Vesuvius to visit a beautiful winery where you can have lunch with typical local products such as salami, provolone, bruschetta, homemade bread with extra virgin olive oil from Campania and spaghetti with tomato and basil. Here you'll taste 3 different types of the Lacryma Christi wine , rosé red and white and, to end, an Italian sparkling wine and an apricot distillate as a digestive after tasting a typical Neapolitan dessert, the "pastiera", the Easter cake made with shortcrust pastry filled with ricotta, cream and wheat cooked in milk and flavours.
The last stop of our shore excursion from the port of Naples will be in Pompeii, the ancient Roman city buried in 79 AD from the fury of the eruption of Vesuvius volcan and remained under a blanket of lapilli and solidified dust for over 7 centuries.
It is possible to visitthe ruins alone with audio guides or with licensed guides from the Campania Region that your driver will contact for you.
Here you can see the ancient patrician houses "domus" that came to light in the years of excavation, the Casa dei Vettii, the Villa dei Misteri and the Casa del Fauno, the Foro , the political and religious center of the city, the Tempio di Giove and the Tempio di Iside, the Lupanare, the old brothel with sex scenes on the walls and the tabernas, the shops that sold cooked food comparable to modern trattorias.
The shore excursion from the port of Naples ends with the return to the port of Naples in the afternoon.
