The Vesuvius mountain had always served as a backdrop to their city and daily activities and lifestyle without ever considering it a threat and certainly never imagining that it would one day be the cause of their end. Climbing Mount Vesuvius is a pleasant experience because it gives you the opportunity to admire the view of the vast territory that encloses the three provinces of Naples, Caserta and Salerno. Upon reaching the top, you can actually see the city of Pompeii, at that point we close our eyes and with a little fantasy to relive the reality of that time imagining what was the extraordinary power of the eruption that destroyed the city, only then you realize the extraordinary nature of what you are visiting.
Sorrento, with its quaint and narrow streets, the main square “Piazza Tasso” and the main street “Corso Italia”, are a mixture of art, culture and modernity. Three different periods that live in a perfect harmony, all this made, even more picturesque by the beautiful scenery of the coast that can be seen crossing the Sorrento peninsula on your way Sorrento.
Positano, the pearl of the Amalfi Coast and certainly not to be missed … Positano is a cliffside village and is a well-known holiday destination with a pebble beachfront and steep, narrow streets lined with boutiques and cafes. The “Sentiero degli Degli” hiking trail links Positano to other coastal towns. Enjoy the opportunity to discover smaller details of the Amalfi Coast. The glamour of Positano, built on the stretch of the cliffs of the Lattari mountains where you can see the genius of who built these houses, a tremendous feat of engineering. The alleys are the custodians of history and events where only passing through them can understand their importance and their significance.
Capri is easily accessible by hydrofoil from Naples or Sorrento. It is yet another of the pearls of the Mediterranean Sea and is visited yearly by the most famous yachts of the rich and famous from all over Europe. The winding narrow lanes are world famous for exclusive shopping and have become a sort of “catwalk” for the most fashionable.
Ravello is an aristocratic town and is world famous for its art and culture as well as numerous summer initiatives such as classical music concerts. Along the narrow streets of this medieval village you can admire the most beautiful buildings such as Palazzo Sasso, Villa Cimbrone, and Villa Ruffolo and appreciate the beauty of the frescoes and architecture.
Herculaneum is one of the most important and ancient towns bordering Naples. Over the centuries the Ruins have not lost their original character and vibe of a Summer Resort for the Rich and Aristocrats.
We do not do the kind of uninformative “drive-through” bus tours where you snap photos through a car or bus window without ever truly experiencing the city. We do not work on the Sabbath, even if paid in advance. Touring on a Saturday afternoon might be a relaxing pleasure for a visitor, but for us it would be work and thus a profanation of Shabbat rest. We do not exchange dollars or traveler’s checks. We are not equipped to accept credit cards, dollars or traveler’s checks. In spite of the many urban legends and rumors, there is no secret side door to let you step directly inside the Sistine Chapel from the street, there is no way to arrange a private meeting over tea and cookies with either the Chief Rabbi or the Pope, and there is no proof that the Menorah and Kelim (the holy vessels from the Holy Temple) are in the basement of the Vatican. We will be very happy, of course, to show you the authentic representations of them in stone carved by the Romans 2,000 years ago.
