Visit the Amalfi Coast From Your Ship in Naples/Salerno

Among the ports of call in Italy,  included in a Mediterranean Cruise,  you’ll find the port of Naples. Your ship will be greeted by Mount Vesuvius, which rises to the south of the bay of Naples. If this is your first time in the area your goal is probably the Amalfi Coast.

There is one thing you need to keep in mind though. The Amalfi Coast is actually a  part of the Sorrentine Peninsula, which stars just after Pompeii and extends all the way to Salerno. The part that goes from Positano to Vietri sul Mare is the real Amalfi Coast, but it goes without saying that all the Sorrentine Peninsula is worth seeing!

Amalfi, Ravello, Positano, Sorrento, these are the most famous towns on the Sorrentine Peninsula and on the Amalfi Coast. The ones you’ll want to see. But if this is your first time in the area you’ll probably want to visit Pompeii, too.

Now,  the area being quite vast you obviously can’t see it all in the limited time you have onshore, so what should you see? Where to start from? What can be fitted in a day onshore without having to rush? This is where Rome in Limo can help!

If you have already visited Pompeii and do not wish to go back, a great alternative is Herculaneum. The site is less known than Pompeii, but truly as fascinating! To visit Herculaneum and still enjoy the Amalfi Coast you should consider Herculaneum, Sorrento & Positano.
