Day 1 - Arrive In Sorrento
You should arrive at the airport to take your flight to Naples from your selected airport.
Day 2 - Walking Tour Of Sorrento
Sorrento has been a resort for centuries and has developed with great style, so today we have a rather lazy day commencing with a short walking tour. The Romans were aware of Sorrento’s attributes and the area is dotted with the remains of their opulent villas. During the 18th century it became part of the Grand Tour for Europe’s aristocracy with classic hotels being built around the old cliff-top town.
Day 3 - Naples & Pompeii
Today, we take the drive north around the bay to the cosmopolitan city of Naples where we have a guided tour of the Archaeological Museum which is one of the finest of its kind. All entrance fees are included here.
Day 4 - Free Day
Today you have a free day in Sorrento to spend as you wish. You could take a boat trip, shop in the high class boutiques, have a lazy lunch or simply catch up on some reading – the choice is yours.
Day 5 - Capri
Capri is renowned the world over for its outstanding natural beauty and today we take the short boat ride to the island. It has long been the most sought-after part of the Bay of Naples: not only attracting three Roman emperors, but also writers such as D.H. Lawrence and George Bernard Shaw who sought inspiration here. Famous names such as Gracie Fields and Graham Greene, amongst many others, have made it their home. It is easy to see why it is so adored: as we approach the island you can see small fishing boats rising and falling with the gentle waves, with pretty shops and restaurants lining the busy quayside.
Day 6 - Herculaneum
This morning we visit Herculaneum, known locally as Ercolano, located in the shadow of the mighty Mount Vesuvius. All entrance fees to Herculaneum are included.
Day 7 - Amalfi Coast
We think you will agree the Amalfi coastline is, as it claims to be, Europe’s most beautiful. Today we explore the coast winding around towering cliffs, dipping almost sheer to the beautiful blue sea with birds soaring above and the air heavy with the typically Mediterranean scent of pine forest and wild flowers. Our coastal drive takes us above the exclusive resort of Positano….haunt of celebrities. We arrive in Amalfi, a picturesque village in a gorgeous setting, possessing charm in abundance and perhaps the highlight of the coast.
Day 8 - Return Flight
Today we return to Naples airport, at the appropriate time for your flight home, after a really memorable and unique tour.
