Please let us know when you place your reservation for this tour if you wish for us to book a guide for you.
A stop at enchanting coast town of Sorrento for lunch at a local restaurant is always a treat. Sorrento is famous for its seaside charm, brightly colored buildings, wood craftsmanship, and the legendary tasty Limoncello liqueur produced from local Sorrento lemons.
The drive itself along the famous windy road along the steep coast of Amalfi to the stunning beachside town of Positano is something movies are made of. Positano itself delights you with its pastel colored buildings stacked upward the side of the hill offers a splendid walk along the beach, and a stroll through its charming narrow lanes lined with cafes, boutiques, galleries and artisan shops.
From here your driver will take you back to your hotel in Rome or port dock in Naples.
