I highly recommend the Amalfi Coast Tour by private limo! The excursion begins with a chauffeur-guide picking you up from Rome International Airport. He will then take you to Tivoli, where you will see Villa d’Este, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, built in the 16th century, featuring jets and fountains decorating terraces. Marvel the over-2600-years-old paintings at Tarquinia, another World Heritage Site and the home of the Etruscan civilization.
The trip includes a visit to Naples, the capital of southern Italy, which has a wealth of cultural, historic and artistic heritage. Catch a boat to the beautiful island of Capri, a hill town with narrow streets and passageways, and listen to stories about the local culture. Indulge in local food, churches and museums along the Amalfi Coast in a gorge along Mount Cerreto. Visit Sorrento and enjoy the beautiful gardens, natural attractions, pleasant climate and great history.
The guide will show you Revello, which has history dating back to the sixth century BC and has the best preserved temples of Neptune and Ceres. Walk in the Castelcivita caves, prehistoric dwellings more than 40,000 years old, at Paestum. Take a history lesson at the ruins of Herculaneum, which was destroyed by the volcanic eruption of 79 AD that also destroyed Pompeii. Climb to the top of Mount Vesuvius for a final glimpse of the Bay of Naples before heading home. All that by the famous guides of A La Carte Italy Tours, who will also show you around Rome, Venice, Milan, Florence and all other major Italian landmarks.
