Explore Italy’s scandalously beautiful Campania region on a 3-day southern Italy tour from Rome, with 4-star hotel accommodation in Sorrento included.

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

Highlights

  • Excellent value for money
  • Multi-Day Trip
  • All-inclusive tour
Day 1: Rome – Sorrento (L, D)
Leave central Rome in the morning, and journey south to sunny Naples. Travel through the city in the comfort of your coach to enjoy a panoramic overview of the downtown area. Gaze out over the Bay of Naples, and have your camera ready for two brief stops at Mergellina and Molo Beverllo to admire sights of the gulf and Mt Vesuvius.

Travel inland to Pompeii, and after lunch in town, visit its UNESCO-listed archaeological site with your guide. Hear how Pompeii lay buried under volcanic ash for centuries following Mt 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 or superior 4-star hotel in Sorrento

Day 2: Capri (B, L, D)
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 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.

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

Head back down the hill and visit one of Capri Town’s traditional trattorias for lunch. 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.

Overnight: 4-star or superior 4-star hotel in Sorrento

Day 3: Sorrento – Rome (B)
After breakfast, spend the morning in Sorrento at your leisure. 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 gorgeous Amalfi Coast.

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

Please note: Your Blue Grotto trip is subject to good weather conditions. From November 2015, through March 31, 2016, this tour will not visit Capri island.

Very organized. Best hotel in Sorrento is the Hotel Tramontano! It is literally in the middle of town and an easy walk to great shops and restaurants. The hotel restaurant had great food and amazing views! The the staff were always very accomodating.

I highly recommend this tour. We called when we arrived in Rome from our hotel room to confirm. When we confirmed, they gave us a pickup time. We waited in the lobby with our luggage the day we got picked up. We were picked up in a small van and then taken to the area where we were to take the bus. On the way to Naples, they stop halfway so that you can buy a snack and use the bathroom. Once in Naples, you get to get out for a bit to take pictures. After Naples we ate lunch at a hotel next to the ruins. Pompeii was amazing!! I recommend you bring an umbrella and sunblock as there isn't much shade. After Pompeii, they drive us to our hotel. We paid extra to stay in the superior hotel. We got to stay in Grand Hotel Ambasciatori. If you stay there, make sure to take the elevator down to the water. On the next day, we took a boat ride to Capri. I was a bit bummed that we didn't get to go into the grotto due to high tides. We were told that the Blue Grotto is only open 30 of the whole year. We did get to take a boat ride next to the grotto. One thing I recommend doing is taking the chair lift. The views are amazing!
