Emerald Tour

The Emerald Tour is one of our top selling tours to the Amalfi Coast because it offers so much value for money.  Starting in Rome and ending in Rome, this tour includes round trip transportation from Rome and includes sightseeing in Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri and the Amalfi Coast. 

We consider our Emerald Tour of the Amalfi Coast to be of exceptional value for money because it includes both private elements and group elements. You get to experience the highlights of the area on some small group tours that we include here as well as the chance to relax on your own in a picturesque setting from which various options are available to you. 

This tour unlike so many others also offers you the chance to stay right on the Amalfi Coast as opposed to only in Sorrento which so many of the other companies offer.  

 Please see the full description of the tour to better understand all that this tour includes.  We are sure you will be impressed not only with the great hotels but the high level of service that is provided on this exceptional tour of some of Southern Italy's most beautiful places.

Amalfi Coast


 

The region of coastline stretching from Sorrento, South of Naples, to Amalfi, so called Amalfi Coast is a UNESCO world heritage site that is renowned for its natural beauty as well as its characteristic towns. You’ll find houses and buildings painted in fresh pastels, stuck into cliffs and canyons … the flowery spectacle set in the cliffs framed by the endless blue sky and sparkling water.

The crystal clear ocean waters and breathtaking landscapes are offset by the famous towns of Sorrento, Praiano, Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi, whose charming architecture elegantly blends into the mountainous landscape. The Island of Capri is a favorite destination for celebrities and is known for its sheer cliffs, amazing grottos and crystal blue water.

The Island if Ischia is located above an ancient submerged volcanic crater and is rich in thermal water, making it a great source for natural spas and thermal baths. Of historical and archaeological interest are the ancient towns of Pompeii and Ercolano, preserved for all time by the cataclysmic volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Major attractions: Pompeii and Ercolano archeological sites, Sorrento, Positano, Capri, Ischia and smaller towns along the Amalfi Coast, the archeological site of Paestum by buffalo mozzarella farms, and the town of Castellabbate along the Cilento Coast south of Salerno. Major theaters and music events: Teatro San Carlo in Naples, Ravello Festival in Ravello.

Sorrento


 

It is still not certain exactly when the town was founded, but Sorrento was, without doubt, already a strategic commercial town for both the Greeks and the Etruscans. Today, Sorrento is a tourist destination of international repute, made all the more popular by a series of ancient traditions including the production of wine, gastronomic products and fine craftsmanship.

Oranges, lemons, walnuts, and olives are all grown on the territory Sorrento and a great variety of cheeses are produced here. The town is famous for its wood engraving and lace work, a tradition that dates back to the seventeenth century. Local jewellers make exquisite coral necklaces in various styles and dimensions. All these goods can be found in the little shops tucked away in the alleyways of Sorrento.
 
Sorrento boasts a number of important religious sites such as the archbishopric, the Basilica of Sant'Antonio, the Church of St. Maria del Carmine, the Church of San Francesco d'Assisi, Sorrento Cathedral, and the Monastery of St. Maria delle Grazie. Also well worth visiting are the Correale Museum of Terranova, the Sedile Dominova and the Via della Pietà.
 
Grand Hotel Excelsior offers a swimming pool, free parking, and a free shuttle to its private beach and to Amalfi centre. Each room has a private balcony with views of the sea.

Each guest room at the Grand Hotel is spacious and comfortable. Free Wi-Fi is available in communal areas.
