IN THIS TOUR:
Sorrento is the birth place of the poet Torquato Tasso and the main square was named after him where the driver 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. When you leave Sorrento the driver will head towards the Amalfi Coast to visit Positano.
The Amalfi Drive is a famous Winding road with breathtaking views of the beautiful stretch of coastline on the Mediterranean where we will stop in a number of places giving you opportunities to take memorable photos. UNESCO awarded the Amalfi Coast a well deserved spot on the World Heritage list in 1997. From the Amalfi coast we will drive in the Center of Positano. Positano – The very famous vertical village, the jewel of the Amalfi Coast, thanks to its picturesque landscapes. We 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. When you leave Positano the driver will head to Herculaneum
This interesting archeological site of Herculaneum is often bypassed for the more glamorous Pompeii, but the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79 that buried Pompeii also submerged Herculaneum, preserving both settlements. Probably the most famous of the well-preserved houses is Villa dei Papiri, the home of a rich and powerful Roman statesman, thought to be either Lucio Pisone, Julius Caesar’s father in law, or his son. More than 50 marble and 20 bronze sculpture were found in the villa, together with an amazing collection of 1,700 greek and Roman papyri. The villa and Roman the theatre can only be visited by advance booking. Other highlight include the casa del Atrio Mosaico, with its beautifully preserved mosaic flooring. from Herculaneum the driver will drive you back to the Cruise ship port of Salerno at 5 pm.

Excellent experience with Rosato Private Tours and Vittorio gets the highest recommendation! We had a last minute change from our cruise ship docking in Sorrento and ended up in Naples instead, but he came through and met us for a full day of Pompeii, Vesuvius and Herculaneum. We also got set up with Charlotte as our tour guide in Pompeii and she did a fabulous tour. Vittorio is first class and his English is great and is an engaging and hardworking guy. Can't say enough good things about our day and Vittorio. You'll be happy you booked with him!

I can not say enough good things about our experience with this company!! I was on a cruise and throughout our cruise we had four private drivers. This company was by far our FAVORITE!!! We were nervous about getting back to the ship and Vittorio planned an amazing itinerary which left plenty of time to get back without worrying. From the moment we started planning, he was responsive and helped ensure that we had the best experience with the short time that we had in Naples. He picked us up from the cruise port, was very friendly and provided us with water throughout the trip. He also organized the most amazing lunch with great views of the coast and even hired a private tour guide for us around Pompeii. While we were on our tour in Pompeii, my friend mentioned that she wanted sauce and pasta to bring home with her and he went to the store for her!! Vittorio, thank you so much again for the most incredible day! We hope to see you in the future! Ciao ciao ciao ciao!!!

Our tour started in Salerno off our cruise ship. We were 4 friends and had a mini van Mercedes which was very comfortable. Our driver Giuseppe gave us excellent information on the region and went to Positano, Amalfi and Ravello. Had time to go for lunch in a family owned restaurant, affortable prices. Got back in time back on the ship and did not feel pressed for time. When your itinerary is well planned, like this one did, we spent enough time and what we wanted to see. They really do everything to satisfy the customer and more. Thank you Giuseppe and Vittorio!
