Meet our friendly English speaking driver at the cruise terminal at 8am. “Bella Napoli”, where the pizza Margherita was born – a city having many different colours and many different sides, renowned for the character of its people. Naples is situated in the bay where Mount Vesuvius forms the backdrop to the city…..Visit the museum of National Archaeology and the museum Capodimonte that exhibits works of the Renaissance and baroque masters (don’t miss the impressive ceiling).
See the cathedral of San Gennaro, impressing churches of San Lorenzo and Ges Nuovo, the charterhouse of San Martino and the cloister of Santa Chiara. There is the theatre of San Carlo and a nearby bar Gambrinus (the bar of the artists) that inherited its name from all the artists that used to drink there after exiting the theatre. Take a break and try a wonderful Sfogiatella or a Babbà..!
There are various squares such as the Piazza Municipio where the castle of Maschio Angioino is located, and the vacant Royal Palace of the former Royal family that rests in Piazza Plebisco. If required you can hire our local tour guide for a couple of hours, please advise.
To reach the international town of Sorrento you need to drive the coastal road to its furthest point. Spectacular views of the entire bay of Naples and the Island of Capri (that was once joined to Sorrento) are revealed as the Amalfi coast road emerges from over the mountain cliff. A short drive through the town before you arrive in the centre of a major shopping mall for the local people as well as tourists, with many shops (normally open all day, everyday in the summer).
Sorrento seemed to inherit the traditional Neapolitan pizza from their neighbouring city, therefore the Pizzeria’s in town are highly recommended. Enjoy the rest of the day for relax, return to Naples port by 5pm.
