Meet your knowledgeable English-speaking driver & private air conditioned sedan at the Sorrento port and venture off to drive the seaside roads of the Amalfi coast to visit some of the region’s famed towns.

The "Amalfi Drive" is said to be the most spectacular road in Europe and from Sorrento, the winding cliff top road offers breathtaking panoramic views at every bend. Each spot is a world of its own, a fantastic world which dazzles the imagination and inspires unforgettable impressions.

Positano is an especially romantic costal town with a picturesque medley of whitewashed houses terracing down a vertiginous slope to the sea. It is Italy’s most nearly vertical town, spilling down from the cornice like a waterfall of pink, cream and yellow villas.

Amalfi, which gives its name to the whole coast on which it lies, was once a thriving Marine Republic. The unmistakable cluster of white tightly packed houses rises up the hillside is dominated by the beautiful Cathedral, which stands superbly on the top of a great flight of steps leading up from the main square. Then there is Ravello, which nestles eleven hundred feet above the sea in the hillside. Enjoy the views as you return to the port to board the ship.

Of course, today’s itinerary is at your leisure. Your driver will help custom tailor the days itinerary to see what most interests you – from sightseeing & shopping, to the best place to enjoy lunch or enjoy a glass of wine.

Please Note: An itinerary including Pompeii cannot be offered with the private car and driver option. If you do wish to visit Pompeii, we suggest that you discuss custom options with your travel advisor.

Sights of Monreale and Palermo with a Traditional Lunch - Palermo - 2018 ( 5 Hours 30 Minutes )
Palermo, Italy | 17 Sep 2018

  • Meals: Lunch
  • Recommended Ages: All Ages
  • Activity Level: Moderate
  • Experience(s): Food & Wine • Culture, History & Arts • Sightseeing

Our day in Palermo begins after being introduced to our private, English speaking guide at the Port of Palermo, where we will board a private coach and depart for Monreale. Located on the outskirts of Palermo, Monreale is known for its stunning cathedral and cloisters. We enjoy the historical, artistic and archaeological highlights of this area but also enjoy exploring some of the most beautiful hidden corners of Sicily and learning some unique facts about this incredible island. After a brief tour, we will be transferred back to the Palermo city center.

Throughout much of western history, Sicily was the prize of the Mediterranean; a strategic crossroads at the heart of the sea, fought over by a mesmerizing succession of foreign rulers- Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, barbarians, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, Hohenstauhen monarchs, Angevins, Aragonese, Bourbons and Savoie Kings. Nowhere, perhaps, is this richly layered history more evident than in Palermo, Sicily’s exotic capital. We will commence our guided tour with a visit to Palermo's Duomo, intriguingly built on the former site of a Muslim mosque, which itself was built over an early Christian basilica, followed by a walking tour of the city’s main sites.

After the tour, we will stop for lunch at one of the ancient facceria bakery shops of Palermo. In 1834, after 25 years as a master chef serving the Princes of Cattolica, Salvatore Alaimo received the gift of the deconsecrated chapel, an old building in the heart of Palermo. On the front door, he hung a wooden board with the engraving "Focacceria" and started cooking for the people. Still today, Antica Focacceria San Francesco offers a culinary experience that is rooted in ancient traditions, and made of natural ingredients, creativity, and passion.

Following our lunch, we will return to the ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Smart casual wear is recommended. There will be moderate walking in Monreale, as well as in Palermo for a city tour. Walking will be on mostly paved surfaces, but also on cobblestones, stairs, or gentle slopes.
