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.

Ghosts of Antiquity - Kusadasi - 2019 ( 6 Hours 30 Minutes )
Kusadasi, Turkey | 12 Oct 2019

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

Our port of Kusadasi is a pleasant fishing village and resort on the Turkish Aegean, but it’s perhaps best known as the gateway to the Greco-Roman ruins at Ephesus. Once home to 300,000 people, this sunny metropolis flourished between 600 BC and AD 500, and has been painstakingly excavated and restored.

Before we even arrive to Ephesus, we’ll stop to visit the House of the Virgin Mary. This lovely chapel is tucked in the hills behind the ancient site and is thought to be the place where Mary lived the last years of her life. Arriving at Ephesus, we will enjoy a private walking tour, beginning along the Royal Road, also known as the Arcadian Way, a 100-foot-wide, fourth-century white marble chariot thoroughfare that stretched from the harbor to the city’s theater. We’ll see the Library of Celsus, with its hauntingly beautiful two-story façade; the structure once held around 10,000 parchment and papyri documents. Another landmark of Ephesus is the great theater, which provided perfect acoustics for performances. The diameter of this immense hall was 495 feet, and it had 22 tiers and could accommodate 25,000 spectators[Office1] [JS2] [JS3] . And though it’s in nearly complete ruins today, the Temple of Artemis, once four times the size of the Parthenon, is still impressive.

One highlight of our day at Ephesus will be exclusive access to the recently discovered Yamac Terrace houses, a fascinating archeological site that is currently being excavated.[Office4] [JS5] . Once the dwellings of Roman aristocracy, they show beautifully preserved and colorful mosaics.

Following our day at the site we’ll transfer to Kismet Hotel, overlooking Kusadasi Harbor, for a feast of local meze and other specialties. After lunch, we’ll have the option of shopping in town before heading back to the ship.

Suggested Attire/Walking Notes: Light, casual attire with comfortable walking shoes with non-slip soles. Sunscreen, hats, and/or umbrellas are highly recommended. Important Note: This tour includes at least two hours of walking outdoors with steps, cobblestones, and uneven surfaces. It is not recommended for people with walking difficulties or requiring the use of a wheelchair.
