Day 1 :  ROME – NAPLES – POMPEII – SORRENTO (280 Km – 4 hrs)

Meet your tour leader at the Destination Italia Sightseeing office on Viale Dei Bastioni di Michelangelo 21, Rome at 7:30 in the morning and depart to Naples (we kindly ask you to arrive at the mentioned meeting point at least 15 minutes earlier). Upon arrival in Naples, our tour leader will take us for a walking tour of the historical centre to admire Piazza del Plebiscito, the Royal Palace, the Gallery of Umberto I, the San Carlo Opera House. Upon leaving the city, continue to Pompeii. After lunch in a typical restaurant with Neapolitan specialities (included), visit a coral and cameo factory where we will have the opportunity to admire and purchase items made with a technique dating back to ancient Greek times. Then visit the excavations of Pompeii, the ancient Roman city destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This archaeological journey through the ancient city will allow you to better understand how Romans used to live at that time. Proceed to Sorrento, the gateway to the Amalfi coast. Check-in and have dinner at the hotel.

  • Overnight in Sorrento.

Day 2 :   SORRENTO – CAPRI – SORRENTO (1hr by ferry)

In the morning, wake up with an American buffet breakfast at the hotel before departing at 7:30 am to the island of Capri. To get there, you will board the ferry and arrive at the Marina Grande. Once on the island, explore the Blue Grotto (weather permitting) and make a stop at the famous Piazzetta. A minibus then takes you up to admire the stunning views from Anacapri. After lunch in Anacapri (included), return to Marina Grande where you will board the ferry. Once on the mainland, you will be transferred back to Sorrento, to enjoy dinner at your hotel. 

  • Overnight in Sorrento.

Day 3 :   SORRENTO – POSITANO – AMALFI (40 Km – 1.5 hrs)

After an American buffet breakfast at the hotel, depart to the Amalfi Coast at 8:30 in the morning. You’ll drive there along the breath-taking Amalfi Coast drive. En route, make a stop in the beautiful town of Positano. Upon arrival in this picturesque village, enjoy about two hours of free time to explore its many narrow lanes and souvenir shops. Alternately, you can opt for lazing on the beach or even visiting the Church of Santa Maria Assunta (at own expense). Then depart Positano and continue to Amalfi, where you’ll check-in at the hotel before spending an afternoon at leisure. You can reach the beach and plunge into the warm waters of the Mediterranean or venture out to explore the other amazing villages that dot the coast.

  • Overnight in Amalfi.

Day 4 :  AMALFI

Wake up to an American Buffet breakfast at the hotel and then spend the day at leisure exploring the historical centre of Amalfi. This city’s old town is justly known as an outdoor museum, as it preserves almost intact architectural and urban digs of its bygone days as a wealthy maritime republic. Another option is going to visit the town of Ravello, which contains the beautiful Villa Ruffolo and the magnificent gardens of Villa Cimbrone. An agreeable way to spend the evening would be to indulge in a romantic dinner in one of the pretty restaurants that line the harbour or taste the typical street food.

  • Overnight in Amalfi.

Day 5 :  AMALFI – POMPEII – ROME (300Km – 4 hrs)

After one last American buffet breakfast at the hotel, spend yet another morning at leisure making the most of your last moments in Amalfi. At 02:30 pm a transfer to Pompeii will pick you up at the hotel. Once in Pompeii, you’ll join the bus back to Rome. You’ll be dropped off in Rome at 09:00 pm at Viale Washington, or Viale Luigi Einaudi, or Termini Station Area, or Via Ludovisi. From here you may continue with your travel arrangements.
