2-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri
- Excellent value for money
- Multi-Day Trip
- All-inclusive tour
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 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 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 or 4-star superior hotel in Sorrento
Day 2: Sorrento – Capri – Rome (B, L)
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; 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 restaurants, enjoying a lunch as delicious as the Mediterranean views. Walk it off on a stroll, passing through Capri’s Piazetta (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.
Please 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.

This tour was fascinating and FULL of history. There was not quite enough time to linger in Pompeii to dream of days long ago but this was a MUST, MUST, MUST see attraction. The trip to the Island of Capri was breathtaking and so worth the trip. The Grotto trip was a very long 2 hour nauseating wait in a rolling sea for our turn to enter the cave. The sight was well worth seeing in the end. The people were very friendly and spoke English well. Our guide was very knowledgeable indeed.

We Have recommended this tour to everybody. The Pompeii ruins were fantastic. Marco who took us to Capri and the Blue Grotto was brilliant. He gave us lots of information, knew the area very well and had us all laughing.The accommodation at the Royal was 6 star in our view and certainly worth the upgrade.Our only disappointment was we didnt do a longer tour with you. Thank you so much.wonderful memories.
