Itinerary

Day 1: Rome – Sorrento
Leave central Rome in the morning, and journey south to sunny Naples. Travel through the city in the comfort of your coach to enjoy a panoramic overview of the downtown area. Gaze out over the Bay of Naples, and have your camera ready for two brief stops at Mergellina and Molo Beverllo to admire sights of the gulf and Mt Vesuvius.

Travel inland to Pompeii, and after lunch, visit the UNESCO-listed archaeological site with your guide. Hear how Pompeii lay buried under volcanic ash for centuries following Mt Vesuvius’ 79 BC eruption, and explore the impressive 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.
(Lunch and Dinner included)

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

Day 2: Capri 
From November to March this tour does not visit Capri 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 intriguing cave is said to have sunk dramatically since prehistoric times, blocking out most of its entrances.

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

Head back down the hill and visit one of Capri Town’s traditional trattorias for lunch. Walk it off on a stroll, passing through Capri’s swanky Piazetta (Piazza Umberto) — Capri’s place to see and be seen. Board another hydrofoil boat in the late afternoon and return to Sorrento in time for dinner.
(Lunch and Dinner included)

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

Day 3: Sorrento – Rome 
After breakfast, spend the morning in Sorrento at your leisure. Perhaps take a stroll along Corso Italia and climb the steps to see atmospheric Piazza Tasso, tucked away in the heart of Sorrento Old Town. Soak up views of the cliffs, where Sorrento’s houses almost seem to be stacked on top of each other, and then shop for any last-minute souvenirs.

Meet your guide at the prearranged time, and then return to Rome by coach. Your tour finishes at your central Rome hotel in the evening.
(Breakfast included)
