Sorrento

sorrento3Close to the Amalfi coast there is the Sorrento coast, which stretches from Castellammare di Stabia to Punta Campanella. The most representative city is Sorrento, a true haven of art and culture of the bell, perched on a cliff overlooking the sea, with important historical and artistic heritage. The heart of the city is formed by a maze of narrow streets lined by small shops of craftsmen that produce the typical and folkloristic items products, in addition to the many taverns where you can taste all specialties. There are opportunities for wellness tourism , with the renowned thermal spas of Vico Equense. One recommendation, do not leave the Sorrento Coast without tasting the famous Limoncello liquor.

Positano

Driving down-hill directly through Positano descending the winding one-way road, bypassing many local restaurants, leads to the heart of the town – the busy central Piazza dei Mulini that is connected to a narrow downhill path and some occasional flights of steps that lead to the seafront.
At Piazza dei Mulini, you must leave the car as all streets leading to the waterfront are for pedestrians only.
These streets also lead to the cathedral, shops selling lemons, shoes and “Positano fashion” clothing.
While Positano’s ceramic and linen industries (Moda Positano) date from the 1950s, they boomed when tourists discovered the village in the 1970s.
Today you’ll find lots of these shops on this street, along with galleries featuring the work of local artists (a visit to a factory is at your own discretion).
There is a short walk back uphill in order to return to the car and this time, ascending the mountain, returning to the main coastal road to start the journey back to the hotel or ship.
