Tour Details

Leaving from the Amalfi Ferry Pier, this private tour will take you on an educational adventure in Salerno and Paestum. Expect to travel along the Sorrentine Peninsula for a day full of splendid vistas and enchanting sights.

Sandwiched between the Gulf of Naples and the Gulf of Salerno, the Sorrentine Peninsula is a uniquely beautiful stretch of land in Italy, with soaring hills and yawning valleys. Terraces of colourful towns with fragrant citrus gardens have been built onto hillsides. Olive groves and winding vineyards add lushness to the countryside. You'll drive through the peninsula's photogenic landscape on the way to Salerno, which sits on the gulf of the same name on the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Sometimes underrated next to its more colorful companion cities on the Amalfi Coast, Salerno is a relaxed town that offers an authentic Italian experience. There you'll find the Schola Medica Salernitana, the first medical school not only in Italy, but in the world. And in the famed Cathedral of Salerno, you'll find the tomb of Saint Matthew the Evangelist, one of the Twelve Apostles.

The coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea will only get more interesting when you reach Pasteum, which is a 60 km drive from Salerno. There you will find three beautifully preserved ancient Greek temples that date back as far as 600 BC. Along with the Temple of Hera, the Temple of Poseidon, and the Temple of Athena, Paestum is also known for its painted tombs, which feature remarkable colourful frescoes.

This tour includes an English-speaking driver, fuel, highway toll fees, and parking fees, but does not include entrance fees, tickets to local attractions, or private guides. Food and beverages are not included in the tour price, though there are times set aside for snack breaks and meals included in the day's schedule. Don't be afraid to ask your driver for suggestions on local restaurants and cafes that you may enjoy. After the day's tour, your driver will return you to the Amalfi Ferry Pier. Please note that the tour does include entrance fees.
