DAY 1 ROME • NAPLES • POMPEII • SORRENTO
See Southern Italy highlights during your first day on your minitour from Rome. Depart by coach, heading South crossing the regions of Lazio and Campania. The first stop is Naples, one of the most enchanting cities in the Mediterranean famous worldwide for its rich history, art, culture and gastronomy. You will take a drive up the Vomero Hill which provides you with amazing panoramic views of the Bay of Naples, which extends from the Sorrento peninsula to vulcanic area of Phlegrean fields, and the skyline is dominated by the majestic and still active volcano Vesuvius, offering an impressive sight – a perfect spot to take pictures. Descending toward the Port of Mergellina, you will leave the city and travel South toward Mount Vesuvius.
You will enjoy a traditional Neapolitan lunch in Pompeii. Afterwards, 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. Through the remains and ruins of this ancient city you will learn how the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD destroyed the city, killing its inhabitants and burying it under tons of ash. The site was lost for about 1,500 years until its initial rediscovery and the excavation of objects beneath the city which have been well-preserved for centuries. You can walk along the ancient streets for a glimpse into the lives of the Romans, discovering ancient houses, bakeries and shops and imagine the everyday life during Roman times.
After this visit, you will drive along the Sorrentine Coast, arriving in Sorrento for dinner (dress code: jacket for men) and overnight in your new hotel.
DAY 2 SORRENTO
Spend a leisurely day exploring Sorrento, the jewel of the Sorrentine Peninsula – famous for the cultivation of oranges, lemon and olive trees. Return to your hotel for dinner and an overnight stay.
DAY 3 SORRENTO • CAPRI
After breakfast you’ll embark on a tour of Capri Island. Depending on weather conditions, you’ll take a boat ride to the popular and dreamy Grotta Azzura (Blue Grotto), where sunlight passes into an under-water 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. Anacapri sits 918 feet (280 meters) above 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 shoppin. In the afternoon, you will check in to your new hotel for a well-deserved rest.
DAY 4 CAPRI ISLAND
Set out early to discover the beauty of Capri at your own pace. Explore the many shops and restaurants on this wonderful island, or take a swim in the Gulf of Naples. If the excursion to the Blue Grotto was not possible on Day 3 due to sea conditions, you may choose to take the excursion today. Return to your hotel for your last evening in Capri.
DAY 5 CAPRI • ROME
After breakfast in your hotel, do some last minute sightseeing or shopping in Capri. Between 4:00/4:30 in the afternoon, you will board the ferry to Naples and then travel to Rome, where the tour will come to an end (estimated arrival in Rome is 9:00 pm).
