Highlights

  • 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.

Thought the whole trip was great value for money. Naples tour was dull but apart from that the rest of the trip was excellent. Organization and tour guides throughout Pompeii and Capri were very good. Hotel was amazing, lovely location and great food and service.

The 3 day Italy Trip was an excellent value. Sorrento and Capri were so beautiful and Pompeii was very interesting. The stop in Naples was unnecessary as we simply passed by points of interest. Our guide of Pompeii was very knowledgeable. Sacha was an excellent guide and made our time in Capri extra special. Although we weren't able to see the Blue Grotto, due to weather, we did buy tickets for the chair lift in Anacapri and the views were amazing. Two negatives were that the tour company tried to switch our hotels which was very upsetting and stressful. When I booked with Viator I already had reservations in one of the top hotels in Sorrento. I only decided to switch to the Viator trip because you assured me that I would be placed in one of the hotels listed in the description of the trip. I did a lot of research on the hotels and felt comfortable giving up my reservation for one of the hotels offered with the 3 Day Trip. Then when I called the day before out tour left to confirm the hotel placement,the tour company told me that I was being placed in a different hotel and that there was nothing that they could do. Luckily after much discussion, they placed me in the original hotel that was listed, however, this situation was unacceptable and stressful in the middle of our vacation. I must say that the Hotel Capidomonte was absolutely wonderful. The service, meals and views from our rooms were first class. The only other problem, which should be addressed, is that the tour guide (forgot her name) that transitioned us from Pompeii to Sorrento recommended a private tour of Amalfi and said that she would be available by phone to help us make arrangements. We did call her and never received a return phone call. (We weren't the only ones with this experience.) Luckily, our hotel recommended a driver and we had a wonderful day. I should also mention that the guide from Sorrento back to Rome (also forgot her name) was excellent-so interested in each guest.
