Transportation

One of our professional, knowledgeable English speaking driver guides will be waiting at pick up location  (where you will be tendered) at 8 am, or according to the agreed time. Your driver will be holding a sign with your or your party’s name on it. Or meeting you at the lobby of your hotel at 8:30am or private resident outside the main doors.

Ports (Pick up is normally 8am or otherwise agreed upon)

Our escort driver will be waiting at the gangway of your cruise ship or outside the cruise ship terminal. The escort driver will be holding up a sign with the group’s name on it. The email that accompanies the voucher you receive at the time of booking will indicate the meeting point for each specific port.

We recommend that you meet onboard before exiting the ship. This way you are all together when meeting your escort driver and the tour can commence much more efficiently. Otherwise, the wait time for others will be 20minutes, after which time the tour will proceed.

As for La Spezia Port

Please note you will need to take a complimentary shuttle bus (do not take the shuttle bus going to the city. You want the one to La Spezia) less than 5 minutes where the passenger pick-up is. Please note that the shuttle bus will take you to the exit of the cruise terminal.  There the Escort driver will be waiting with your name on a sign.

Starting point from Montepertuso
You will meet your trekking guide at 9am.  At this point you will be provided the poles. The tour is 2-3hours long one way. Montepertuso (which literary means "hole in the mountain") is a hamlet of the town of Positano, located on a hill in the upper part of the town. It is the ideal place for trekking lovers, thanks to several suggestive paths which connect the hamlet of Montepertuso to the Lattari Mountains. According to the legend, this was the place of the legendary battle between the Virgin Mary and the Devil, traces of which can still be seen in the rock of the Gambera Mount (510m): the shape of the snake and the suggestive hole in the mountain made by the finger index of the Virgin. Itinerary consists of the following: 1. Fontana Vecchia. 2. Pineta. 3. Monte Gambera. 4. Montepertuso(Hole in the rock).

Fontana Vecchia
Do not miss to visit the church of Santa Maria delle Grazie and the Fontana Vecchia (Old Fountain), restored in 1973 and still popular, thanks to the clearness of its microbiologically pure water.

Pineta
A pearl of the Amalfi Coast, Positano presents itself as a cluster of pastel houses clinging to the steep ledges of the Lattari Mountains, which reflect themselves in the clear sea below, surrounded by an intense fragrance of lemon and bright and vivid colors of bougainvillea. A forest filled Pine trees that are breathtaking.
