Cruise to Capri to see its fabled Blue Grotto, and then spend your final morning at leisure -- soaking up the sun in Sorrento!


  • Excellent value for money
  • Multi-Day Trip
  • All-inclusive tour
Day 1: Rome – Sorrento (L, D)
Leave central Rome in the morning, and travel by coach toward sunny Naples – your first destination! Arrive in Naples by late morning, and set off to explore on a leisurely paced walking tour. Centered around its historical center, your tour takes in top Naples attractions like Piazza del Plebiscito – home to the Royal Palace of Naples (Palazzo Reale) -- and Galleria Umbero I, with its eye-catching glass-roofed arcade.

Travel inland to Pompeii, and after lunch in town, visit its UNESCO-listed archeological site with your guide. Hear how Pompeii lay buried under volcanic ash for centuries following Mount Vesuvius’ 79 BC eruption, and marvel at the incredible Roman ruins that abound.

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

Overnight: 4-star Hotel in Sorrento

Day 2: Capri (B, L, D)

Enjoy breakfast, and then travel from Sorrento port to the ssland 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 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. Light entering from an underwater cavity combines with the trickle of light from its only entranceway, giving the water its vivid blue effect; prepare to be dazzled!

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

Head back down the hill and visit one of Capri Town’s traditional trattorias, enjoying a lunch as delicious as the Mediterranean views. 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.

Note: Your Blue Grotto trip is subject to good weather conditions. In the event of storms or heavy rain, your tour visits Faraglioni (a rocky inlet) instead.

Overnight: 4-star Hotel in Sorrento

Day 3: Sorrento – Rome (B)
After breakfast, spend your morning in Sorrento at leisure. If you’ve not had much time to discover its charm, then here’s your chance! 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 sun-soaked cliffs, where Sorrento’s houses almost seem to be stacked on top of each other, and then shop for any last-minute souvenirs of the utterly gorgeous Amalfi Coast.

Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time, and then return to Rome by coach. Your tour finishes at your central Rome hotel.

What an amazing experience!! We loved every minute of our time on this trip!

Pompeii was fascinating and although it was very hot, we still enjoyed ourselves. Our tour guide was fabulous and very informative!

Sorrento is simply stunning and next time we visit I think we will spend a week there. The weather was perfect, our hotel was superb - We stayed at The Grand Hotel Capodimonte and there is so much to do and see! The shopping is incredible!!!

Capri and Ana Capri were also gorgeous, lots of lovely shops, the chairlift is worth doing and luckily we got to see the Blue Grotto! Our guide for the Capri day trip was Sascha, he was just wonderful and had a great sense of humour and was very informative!

I thoroughly recommend this trip is you have limited time and want to experience a small portion of the Amalfi Coast.

This was a great trip! We enjoyed Pompeii but Naples was the only let down, there was nothing to see and no time to see it. We were told the bus driver is required to take a break after driving a certain amount of time and that's why we stopped in Naples for 45 minutes. I would rather have taken a break at some little winery in the country or have spent the entire 45 minutes in Gambrinus which was the only highlight of the visit. Sounds negative but the rest of the trip was fabulous! Mainly because we got to stay in the GRand Hotel Capodimonte, which is truly a Grand Hotel! We still don't know how we lucked out with this hotel but we thank God or whoever made it happen ! It's beautiful with a superb location high up overlooking the town and the Bay of Naples (we think). The interior is beautiful with bright tile floors all ver, spacious rooms with sea views and a balcony and bathrooms that you could actually take a shower or bath in unlike most of the rest we saw in Italy. The food was excellent , the breakfasts were sumptuous and the pools were spectacular although we didn't have time to use them. I'd go back to Sorrento just to spend more time at this hotel, but we also liked the town very much and were lucky enough to be able to experience the Blue Grotto and Capri on a beautiful day. The Blue Grotto was a bit grueling but worth it We consider ourselves very lucky to have been able to enjoy all this without any of the many possible glitches that could have spoiled it. Thank you for making it possible and we highly recommend it to others.
