Salerno Shore Excursion - The focus of this tour is the beauty of the Amalfi Coast. You spend the whole day driving the coast with plenty of time to enjoy stops in towns such as Amalfi and Positano.

After meeting your driver guide you start driving along the coast until you reach Amalfi, which legend says, was created by Hercules to be the most beautiful setting possible for the final resting place of a beautiful nymph he loved. History tells us that the Romans built the town in the 5th century AD. Notice the Oriental touches in the architecture that are common here including the often photographed bell tower and stone arches that look as if they were made of lace.

From here you'll begin your drive along the Amalfi Coast which stretches about 50 miles from the tip of the Sorrento Peninsula to the city of Salerno. The coast line is famous for its amazing views of quaint fishing villages and luxury hotels that cling to the cliffs above the sparkling blue sea. With each hairpin turn of the road you'll be astonished by another vista. You'll drive the most popular and dramatic portion of the coastline from Amalfi to Positano.

Your next stop is the town of Positano which is one of the most popular resort towns in the world. Narrow streets which are sometimes no more than staircases are lined with shops and caf╠ęs leading from the main road to the beautiful beaches below. In the distance are views of the Galli islands. There are several hiking trails that afford dramatic views, including the "pathway of the gods." The main sight in town is the 13th century Byzantine painting, "The Black Virgin" which can be seen in the Church of Santa Maria Assunta.

After a delightful day exploring these world class resort cities you return to Salerno.
