Itinerary

Day 1: Rome – Naples – Pompeii – Sorrento 
Leave your central Rome hotel in the morning, and travel by coach toward sunny Naples — your first destination. Arrive in Naples by late morning, and take a panoramic view of the lively city and its beautiful bay.

Travel inland to Pompeii, and after lunch visit the UNESCO-listed archeological site with your guide. Hear how Pompeii lay buried under volcanic ash for centuries following Mount Vesuvius’ 79 BC eruption as you explore the Roman ruins.

Return to your coach and travel to the Amalfi Coast, where you'll check in to your Sorrento hotel in time for dinner.

Overnight: Standard Accommodation in Hotel Michelangelo (4*) or similar, Superior Accommodation in hotel Imperial Tramontano (4* superior) or similar


Day 2: Sorrento – Capri – Rome 
Please note: from Nov 1st to Mar 31st this tour will not visit Capri island on Day 2.
The excursion is replaced with a day of free time in Sorrento

Enjoy breakfast, and then travel from Sorrento port to the island of Capri by hydrofoil boat. Hop aboard a rowing boat at Capri’s Marina Grande harbor, and relax as your guide rows you around the island to see the magical Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra). This cave is said to have sunk since prehistoric days, blocking out most of its entrances. Light entering from an underwater cavity combines with the trickle of light from its only entranceway, giving the water its vivid blue effect.

Return to Marina Grande and travel by minibus to the village of Anacapri, perched high above its glamorous Capri town neighbor. Explore at leisure, admiring the wisteria-draped villas with sun-bleached stucco, and look out over the Bay of Naples.

Head back down the hill and visit one of Capri town’s traditional restaurants, enjoying a lunch as delicious as the Mediterranean views. Walk it off on a stroll, passing through Capri’s Piazzetta (Piazza Umberto) — Capri’s place to see and be seen. Board another hydrofoil boat in the late afternoon to travel back to mainland Italy, and then hop aboard your air-conditioned coach for the journey back to Rome. Finish your 2-day tour with a central Rome drop-off in the evening.

Please note: If the Blue Grotto is not accessible due to tidal conditions, you will be taken by boat to the Faraglioni Rocks. If weather conditions do not allow the excursion by boat, you will take a land excursion of the island
