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.

More to Monaco - Monte Carlo - 2019 ( 5 Hours 30 Minutes )
Monte Carlo, Monaco | 01 Nov 2019

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

A sovereign nation nestled along the Mediterranean, most of us know Monaco for its 700-year-strong Grimaldi dynasty, the swanky resort capital of Monte Carlo, and its general reputation for high-rolling revelry. But the principality is both greener and more scientifically relevant than you might think.

We’ll begin our day at the Exotic Garden of Monaco, first opened to the public in 1933. It is the world’s largest collection of succulents and cacti, thriving on a rocky slope overlooking the sea. Often bypassed by visitors, this beautiful spot offers great views, and, sometimes, dazzling bright blooms. We’ll then transfer to the Museum of Prehistoric Anthropology, founded by Prince Albert I in 1901. Through the collections, most of which are from local excavations, we’ll get a look at life on the Côte d’Azur some one million years ago.

We’ll continue to lunch at A’Trego, a stunning and modern restaurant right on the water, to enjoy local specialties and an amazing view. We’ll finish our day at Villa Paloma, one of Monaco’s finest patrician residences. The Villa and its gardens (originally plotted by famed garden designer Octave Godard) are now part of the National Museum. We’ll explore the immaculately restored property, its exhibits, and the grounds before returning to ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Casual attire with comfortable walking shoes.
