Day 1 ROME • NAPLES • POMPEII • SORRENTO
You will depart for Naples from Destination Italia’s Sightseeing office at 7.30am (pick up from hotels will be from 6.30 to 7.00am: please remember to order your breakfast box from your hotel the day before departure).
Upon arrival in Naples your local tour guide will take you for a walking tour of the historical centre to admire Piazza del Plebiscito, the Royal Palace, Piazza del Municipio, the Gallery of Umberto I and the San Carlo Opera House. Pompeii is your next destination and after lunch in a traditional Neapolitan restaurant, you will visit a coral and cameo factory. You will have the opportunity to admire and purchase items made with a technique dating back to the Greek times.
Afterwards, you will enter one of the most important archaeological sites in the world: the ruins of Pompeii, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with 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 and overnight in your new hotel.

Day 2 SORRENTO • CAPRI • SORRENTO
Enjoy breakfast in your hotel before embarking on a tour of Capri Island. Arriving at Marina Grande by ferry, you will visit the Grotto Azzurra (Blue Grotto) and the famous Piazzetta Umberto 1. Depending on weather conditions, you’ll take a boat to the popular and dreamy 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 visit La Piazzetta, the nickname Piazzetta comes from its rather diminuitive size; this rectangle is just a few square meters, almost all of which are covered by bright cafè tables. It’s impossible to visit Capri without passing through it, and hard not to stop once there for at least a quick espresso.
Afterwards you will board a minibus for a scenic drive to Anacapri, 280 metres above the sea level. You’ll see wonderful views of the bay of Naples before visiting a local restaurant for lunch. After lunch in Anacapri, you will return to Marina Grande where you will board the ferry for your transfer back to Sorrento. Dinner and overnight in hotel in Sorrento.
