DAY 1 ROME • NAPLES • POMPEII • SORRENTO
See Southern Italy highlights on your minitour from Rome. Your journey begins heading South along the so-called Sun Highway, crossing the fertile Roman countryside and the area known as Castelli Romani; dotted with enchanting medieval villages and arriving in Naples, one of the largest and well-known cities in Italy. You have the opportunity to climb up to Vomero hill, where you can enjoy beautiful views over the Gulf of Naples, including Mount Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia and Procida and the city of Naples below. This provides an opportunity to take some great pictures. Descending towards the port of Mergellina, you will leave the city and travel South towards Mount Vesuvius and, once you reach the town of Pompeii, you will have a traditional Neapolitan lunch. Subsequently, you will enter one of the most important archaeological sites in the world: the ruins of Pompeii (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) with Skip the Line entrance and a guided tour. Visit the haunting ruins of Pompeii, traveling back in time to the tragic days in 79 AD when the silent Mount Vesuvius suddenly erupted, covering the prosperous Roman city in deadly volcanic ashes and poisonous gases, leaving this prosperous city crystallised in time. You’ll learn how people lived at that time, visiting houses and “bars”; admiring the frescoes and mosaics, imagining how rich and prosperous the city was before that fateful day. Afterwards, you will drive along the Sorrentine Coast, arriving in Sorrento for dinner (dress code: jacket for men) and overnight in your hotel.
DAY 2 SORRENTO
Enjoy breakfast and dinner in your hotel and a day at your disposal. Spend the day exploring Sorrento on your own or taking an optional tour of the local sorroundings.
DAY 3 SORRENTO • CAPRI
After breakfast you’ll travel to Capri island. Depending on weather conditions, you’ll take a boat ride to the popular and dreamy “Grotta Azzurra” (Blue Grotto), where sunlight passes into an underwater cavity and shines through the seawater, creating a magical blue reflection. After returning to the port you’ll board on a minibus for a scenic drive to Anacapri, 918 feet (280 meters) above the sea level. You’ll see wonderful views of the bay of Naples before continuing to a local restaurant for lunch. After lunch you can take advantage of some free time to explore Capri at your leisure or to go shopping and check in at your new hotel for a well-deserved rest.
DAY 4 CAPRI
You will have plenty of time after your hotel breakfast to explore the beauty of Capri, sometimes called the “Garden of Eden,” at your own pace. Discover the many shops and restaurants of this wonderful, sunny island or take a swim in the Gulf of Naples. If you’d rather take a day trip, you may book a separate excursion to nearby Anacapri, situated on the slopes of Monte Solario; the port city of Marina Grande; I Faraglioni, three impressive rock structures that have survived many kinds of erosion but yet still protrude grandly out of the sea; or the famous Villa Jovis, a residence built for the emperor Tiberius in the First Century BC. Return to your hotel for one last evening in Capri.
DAY 5 CAPRI • SORRENTO • POSITANO
After breakfast, depart to Sorrento by ferry. Once on the mainland, you will board on a coach for Positano, and drive along the Amalfi Coast on the most famous road in the Campania region. In Positano, check in at your hotel and enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure.
DAY 6 POSITANO
See all that Positano has to offer as you set off to explore the ancient fishermen’s village after breakfast. Known for its cubic Empire houses perched upon cliffs looking over turquoise water, Positano is the most well-known summer resort area on the whole peninsula. Walk to the heart of town on Via Pasitea and weave your way through the city’s narrow streets, terraces, and gardens overlooking the bay. Be sure to buy one of the straw handbags or handmade sandals for which Positano is famous. Return to your hotel overnight.
DAY 7 POSITANO • NAPLES
Start your day with breakfast at your hotel, and at the designated time, depart for Naples, the third largest city in Italy. Situated along a lovely bay, Naples is known for its islands, the neighborhood of Posillipo, and Mount Vesuvius. Check in to your new hotel for an overnight.
DAY 8 NAPLES
After breakfast, you will be collected at your hotel at 8:15 am. Enjoy a 2 hour panoramic tour led by a professional guide, discovering the most important monuments of the lively city of Naples. The first two stops will be at the Cathedral to visit its Treasure Chapel and at St. Restituta Basilica. Drive to the Town Hall Square where the New Castle was built by the French family of the Anjou and continue your tour to Posillipo. Stop at St. Antonio Church terrace to get the best view of the city and the bay. The tour continues to Plebiscite Square, where you will admire the Royal Palace (outside), the beautiful church of St. Francesco di Paola in its neoclassic style, the famous Umberto I Gallery and finally the San Carlo theatre. The tour will end in the city centre. Enjoy the rest of the day at your leisure, before spending your last night relaxing at your hotel in Naples.

Enjoy a final breakfast in your hotel before your tour concludes.
