IN THIS TOUR:
“Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone. Its houses climb a hill so steep it would be a cliff except that stairs are cut in it. The small curving bay of unbelievably blue and green water lips gently on a beach of small pebbles.” John Steinbeck, 1953 The very famous vertical village, the jewel of the Amalfi Coast, thanks to its picturesque landscapes. I will drive you to the heart of Positano, where you can stroll through the narrow streets to the main beach passing by stylish boutiques, outdoor cafes and restaurants. Positano has been featured in several movies including the very famous ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’. Also very well known for the Linen, Handmade Sandals & Ceramics. The church of Santa Maria Assunta is also worth visiting which features a dome made of Majolica tiles as well as the thirteenth century Byzantine icon of a black Madonna.
“Among vineyards, olive-trees, gardens of oranges and lemons, orchards, heaped-up rocks, green gorges in the hills, and by the bases of snow-covered heights, and through small towns with handsome dark-haired women at the doors – and pass delicious summer villas – to Sorrento where the poet Torquato Tasso drew his inspiration from the beauty surrounding him” Charles Dickens, 1845 Sorrento is the birth place of the poet Torquato Tasso and the main square was named after him where I will stop so you can have time to enjoy the historical area which is full of quaint cobbled lanes and a church on every corner and a fantastic mix of designer and souvenir shops.
Famous worldwide, the excavations of Pompeii is the only archaeological site in the world, along with that of Herculaneum, capable of returning visitors to a Roman town, In 79 AD, an era from which the Vesuvius erupted causing devastation to the surrounding area. Pompeii owes its exceptional state of preservation the way in which it was buried, Tonnes of ash & pumice had covered over 6 meters of Pompeii but preserving it the same time, The same pyroclastic materials, united around invested bodies, have kept the mark, allowing archaeologists to find short but atrocious fears.

This is the 2nd time in 3 years that we visited Italy and Vittorio took us for Olive oil tasting and a cooking class with a family. We had such a fantastic time. We felt like we were part of the family and enjoyed the food, company and wine! Vittorio is a fabulous guide...so personable and fun! We plan on coming back again!!
