Your English-speaking driver/guide will welcome you at the dock of your ship at 8:00am (suggested time). We will start the tour by driving over the mountains on a scenic road straight to Paestum.
What and where is Paestum? Paestum was founded over 2,500 years ago by the Greeks, who were attracted by the sweeping, flat countryside, and rich soil, which was ideal for farming – still a thriving industry here. They built three beautiful, columned temples, (not unlike the Pantheon in Greece) which are fairly intact to this day, and many Greek artifacts which have been discovered in this area are on display in the museum there.
Not much further south, you’ll find the natural, said-to-be 35 million year-old caves called “Angel’s Grottoes” where the sunken river, Negro, has created a small, underground lake. The caves stretch for about 3,000 meters underground, and were first discovered in the late 19th century when many ancient items made from stone, bone and metal were also found there.
Let’s take you on a cultural experience 3000 years back into time. Your private driver will meet you at the port with a name card and you can enjoy a relaxing drive through the Amalfi coast area. You will return to your cruise ship by 5:00pm.
THIS TOUR CAN BE SCHEDULED FROM NAPLES, SORRENTO & AMALFI PORT.
This Tour is conducted by an English-speaking driver/guide that will not enter sites, but drive you around and show you places, pointing out things while explaining what they are, as well as stopping at the places that require a visit and helping you access them.
