Highlights

Marvel at the ancient ruins of Pompeii

Witness breathtaking Mediterranean landscapes on the Amalfi Coast

Depart Rome for a short panoramic tour of Naples, seeing the majestic Mergellina neighbourhood, Castel dell’Ovo, Plebiscito Square, and Maschio Angioino along the way.  Fill up with a delightful lunch in Pompeii before visiting the ruins of this ancient town destroyed by the mighty Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. Gaze upon the picturesque landscapes of Sorrentine Coast on your way to Sorrento 'the land of lemons' where you'll prepare yourself for a tour of Capri the next day. If weather permits, you'll also visit the magical and luminescent Blue Grotto. Afterwards, experience a scenic drive to Anacapri, 280 metres above sea level, then proceed to the historic resort town of Amalfi. Take in the town's stress-melting sites, plunge into the waters of the Gulf of Salerno, or sip on some locally produced limoncello before capping off your escape to the sundrenched region of Campania.
