A don't-miss site, December 17, 2010
Reviewer: geekguy1

Pros: Pompeii, Amalfi Coast

Cons: Audioguides at Pompeii

At the Naples port www.AmedeoAvellino.com had been recommended. Although we knew that his company could not act as a guide at Pompeii, we did think the driver or another person would give us background information about Pompeii and the other sites on our itinerary. There was some misunderstanding, as all we got was a car and driver. Our driver, Nicola, spoke minimal English, but directed us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch and was very helpful when one of us fell on a step and tore a ligament in her ankle.

Naples itself is the port for Pompeii and also the Amalfi coast drive. We had been in Pompeii previously, which was good because we got very little out of it this time, having found the Audioguides not very useful. We think the cost of a licensed guide, shared among several people, is a much better deal, but no one showed up until after we rented the Audioguides (we were there early and off-season).

The drive to Amalfi, however, was wonderful, and Ravello was an excellent place to stop, visit, and have lunch. Although the coastal drive is really the main attraction, Amalfi itself is also an interesting town worth the time. Be sure to visit the church.

Beautiful sights and Pompeii, September 14, 2010

Pros: Coastal drive is among the best in the world.

Cons: Somewhat expensive

We took a private tour with two other couples from the port in Naples. Our driver took us to Pompeii...man, oh man...what a place. This had once been a thriving empire over 1,900 years ago and was devastated by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Over 30 feet of volcanic ash and pumice stone covered the city and people. We were able to see the top of Vesuvius on our ride back to the ship.

From Pompeii we went to Sorrento...had a delightful lunch...pizza, of course. We stopped in Positano then rode along the Amalfi Coast. The views were just breathtaking.
