Shopping, food and an archeological tour off the beaten track


Sorrento is one of the most popular tourist location in Europe. A town by the sea, famous for its grand hotels, elegant cafes and excellent restaurants. It is the birthplace of the limoncello, that you can taste everywhere on the streets and it is known for its typical craftsmanship (woodworking inlay, handmade sandals, etc. ).
A walk in Sorrento has all the ingredients for a typical Italian experience: shopping, good food, local products, relaxing atmosphere.

Stabiae is half an hour drive away from Sorrento. It was an ancient town next to Pompeii (destroyed by the same eruption in AD 79) where the rich owned their villas by the sea. It is possible to visit the remains of two fantastic villas and admire their architecture and decoration. The ancient villas of Stabiae are never too busy and they are the ideal site to visit if you love history but you want to avoid the crowd of Pompeii.

Sorrento and Stabiae is the best tour to combine culture and leisure in the bay of Naples.

Itinerary

We meet at the harbour where your ship moors (Naples, Salerno, Sorrento or Amalfi).
We drive to downtown Sorrento. Here, we walk together to let me illustrate the best of town: streets, shops, cafes, restaurants. It is also possible, if you wish, go to factories, farms or stores to have a demonstration about typical craftsmanship and products (woodworking inlay, limoncello, olive oil, mozzarella cheese, etc. ).
Later, I let you spend some hours of free time to enjoy Sorrento.

After lunch, we drive to Stabiae to visit the ruins of the two ancient Roman villas (Villa San Marco and Villa Arianna). We spend here about 1 hour and a half.
At the end of the tour in Stabiae, we drive back to the harbour for the drop-off.
