TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Amalfi Coast: one of Italy’s most memorable destinations: an extremely unique scenery designed by bays, inlets, cliffs and small villages engrafted onto the mountain.

Sorrento: a lively and enchanting town with Greek origins and a mix of architectural styles, its long history can be found today in the monuments, churches, villas, food left as a heritage.

Pompeii: known as ‘the buried city,’ one of the most significant proofs of Roman civilization and, like an open book, provides outstanding information on the art, customs, trades and everyday life of the past.

Capri: with a unique mythical charm, as well as its natural beauty, it has been an inspiration to poets, lovers and travellers throughout the centuries. 

Ercolano: known as one of the few ancient cities that can now be seen in much of its original splendour, as well as for having been lost, in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 that buried it.
