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. On arrival in the late morning, set off to explore on a leisurely paced walking tour. Your tour takes in top 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 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. Light entering from an underwater cavity combines with the trickle of light from its only entranceway, giving the water its vivid blue effect.

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.

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

Overall the trip was wonderful. We were picked up at our hotel in Rome early morning and took the drive to the bay of Naples to get out stretch! Then on to Pompeii. The tour did include a beautiful lunch, however, it would have served everyone better to do the tour of Pompeii prior to the lunch as it was It was raining and hailing the entire afternoon. It was hard to walk around and keep up with our tour guide in the rain. She was going way to fast to keep up with and the rain was so bad you had to hop from stone to stone in some areas to get through it. They also left us hanging in the rain, after the tour, for over an hour waiting for the Carini tour bus to pick us up. That was very unorganized! The next few days were AMAZING!!! The hotel, which was an upgrade and well worth the small fee through Viator, included 2 breakfast's and 2 dinners. We stayed at the Grand Hotel Royal in Sorrento. It was GEORGOUS. We had a private balcany with an incredible view. The dinners were 5 courses with great service. Many pictures to share. The next day we went to Capri and AnaCapri via boat. That was beautiful as well. I would suggest taking the chair lift in Anacapri, however, beware if you are afraid of heights! I had no idea how high it was until I was already on it. The only way back down is to go all the way to the top and ride the lift back down.. You can see from the pictures what I mean.. They included a beautiful lunch here as well. We met some very interesting people and had plenty of free time at the end of they day to shop! The 3rd day we had the morning to explore on our own. We took a city bus to Positano. The bus dropped of off at the top instead of the town at the bottom. Nothing at the top except a few coffee shops and it was pretty cold. But the views were amazing. More pics of that. The bus ride back to Rome was not so great due to all the Easter traffic, instead of 3 hours, it was 6, but we made it back! This was a trip I would highly reccommend!!!

This is what Italy is all about!!! Best part of our 2week trip in Italy which included Venice, Florence and Rome. Upgrade to the Superior hotel and try to get the Grand Hotel Ambasciatori! Then upgrade to a Sea View room. Worth every Euro! Sunset over Capri and views of Naples the volcano and the harbor. Fabulous. Great tour guide in Capri -Sasha. He was great. Blue Lagoon was closed due to choppy water???? but the alternative boat cruise around the Isle was fantastic and better maybe. If I ever go back to Italy, it will be to Sorrento/Capri.
