Amalfi – Fascinating Pompeii, with a “Whisper”: This land adventure is the opportunity to enhance your visit to the incredible site of Pompeii. A local guide speaks to you directly through the use of an audio headset, referred to as a "whisper". It allows you to listen to the wonderful detailed commentary of your excellent guides without straining to hear over other visitors and noises. From the ship quay in Amalfi, travel along the panoramic coastline and peninsula roads to the remarkably well-preserved ruins of Pompeii. Originally settled by indigenous people before the 8th century BC, and later ruled by Etruscans, Greeks, and Samnites, Pompeii became a thriving commercial center under Roman rule. It was a city full of shops, markets, and town houses, with paved streets, wide sidewalks, a stadium, two theaters, temples, and baths. Then, shortly after noon on August 24 in 79 AD, live cinder and ash from Mount Vesuvius covered the entire city. The community of 30,000 people was effectively embalmed. The material thrown out by the volcano was lighter than lava and enabled the city to be covered, with architectural detail, furnishings, household articles, and even foodstuffs and artwork preserved intact. Walk through the streets rutted by chariot tracks, past the ancient forum, the homes of the wealthy, and the shops of the common man. Caught in the moment of death, view body casts of the eruption's victims seemingly come alive in their struggle for breath, their desire to protect loved ones and their doomed attempts to escape. Those who visit Pompeii cannot help but be amazed and moved by this remarkable ruin and the story it tells of a city captured at the height of its power and the moment of its death.
Duration: 5 hours

Amalfi – Scenic Ravello: Enjoy a panoramic drive climbing up from the harbor in Amalfi to Ravello, one of the most famous and popular locations on the UNESCO awarded Amalfi coast.

Lawrence, who was inspired to write Lady Chatterley's Lover here. The winding route along the famed Amalfi Drive brings you to Ravello's main square, where you set eyes on the Duomo whose linear Romanesque facade is graced with a valuable bronze door made in 1179 by Barissano da Trani.

Each gondola is 36 feet long, 4 feet wide, and weighs 1,100 pounds. A gondolier serves a 10-year apprenticeship under a padrone before getting his own permit. A licensee must be native-born, and, since new licenses are not issued, must wait until a colleague gives up a license before getting his own. Their union offers free courses in foreign languages, art history, and the history of Venice, but the gondoliers are not given singing lessons - every Italian seems to have a natural talent for song. Join this romantic tour through the canals of Venice. Riding four per gondola, traverse the smaller, less trafficked canals, enjoying the soft lights and balconied waterfront homes, and be serenaded as you glide along.
Duration: 2.5 hours

Venice – Venetian Palaces: Grand structures emerge from busy canals - imposing, eccentric, and mysterious - the palaces of Venice! The history of great and powerful families and the opulence that characterized their lifestyles remain alive within their walls. Take this opportunity to visit two of the finest palaces in Venice and admire their peculiar architecture and lavish interiors. Traversing the canals by private motor launch, head first to Piazzo Pisani Moretta, one of the finest examples of late Gothic architecture. Venice's major artists, including Piazzetta and Tiepolo, decorated the interior. It was here in the great reception hall celebrated for its Murano mirrors and chandeliers that Paolo Veronese did his "Family of Darius". Palazzo Querini-Stampalia is of Renaissance construction. The residence of the Querini family, it was home to the Patriarch of Venice. Today it houses an outstanding library and museum. More than 400 paintings and works of art attest to the artistic passion of the Venetians. Various rooms still have original 18th-century furnishings. At the end of your visit, return to the yacht via small motor launch.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
