Departure by bus to Herculaneum, a residential town buried in ashes by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, and well preserved under the rock. Then to Sorrento, some free time for optional lunch, and visit of the city centre, with its churches, monasteries and centuries-old palaces. Via S. Cesareo is the beating heart of the town, with its many-coloured shops, but the real architectonic jewel of the town is the 14th-century Cloister of San Francesco, with its Arabian arches and open-air garden. Visit to an inlaid wood-work shop, the typical Sorrentine production. Return to Amalfi Coast driving through the picturesque villages of Conca dei Marini, Furore and Praiano. Photo stop at the famous Belvedere in Positano. Return to hotel in the afternoon.
