Itinerary / more information

  • Day 1, Rome
    Rome - Pompeii - Salerno. Departing Rome this morning, we journey to the ancient archaeological site of Pompeii, which was razed to the ground by a violent eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD. The rapid falling of ash helped to preserve the ruins, so we can see what life was like in the city on that fateful day.

    After our included visit to Pompeii, we head to our overnight stop: Salerno. Nestled along the scenic Amalfi coastline, Salerno offers a breath-taking Tyrrhenian Sea view. Explore the palm-lined promenade and relish evening delights in numerous restaurants and bars. Catch a sunset view overlooking the sea for an enchanting experience.

    Please note: Check-in closes at 08:15 (tour departs at 08:30) - Rome Pick Up, Hotel American Palace, Rome.
    No meals included.
    Day 2, Sorrento
    Salerno - Sorrento - Positano - Amalfi - Salerno. This morning, we board the ferry bound for our first stop: Sorrento. The Bay of Naples unfolds with Mount Vesuvius looming in the haze, creating a picturesque scene for a leisurely waterfront stroll in Sorrento's cliffside setting. Explore the historic Old Town, a labyrinth of narrow streets teeming with shops, cafes, and restaurants. Treat yourself to a gelato or savour the renowned Limoncello, a traditional lemon liqueur synonymous with the region.

    The day continues with more breath-taking sights as we hop back on the ferry for our next destination. Positano, familiar to fans of "Under the Tuscan Sun," awaits exploration. Depending on the season, seize the opportunity to don your bathing suit and descend to Spiaggia Grande, the main beach at the bottom of this picturesque cliffside village, for a refreshing dip.

    If a beach day isn't your style, indulging in Italian cuisine is always a must. Always. With numerous boutique shops, charming cafes, and local artisans, there's no shortage of activities.

    Returning to the water, we land in the delightful coastal town of Amalfi. Whether it's the gelato or the warm locals, there's a sweet charm to this town that we undoubtedly adore. Our last ferry journey reunites us with Salerno for the evening.
    1 breakfast, no lunch, no dinner included.
    Day 3, Rome
    Salerno - Vesuvius - Rome. In the morning, we journey north to the Mount Vesuvius, which now rests dormant. Equip your sturdy boots for an unforgettable hike to its crater.

    As we return to Rome, the excitement persists with a visit to the remarkable Montecassino Abbey. Perched on a mountain, this working monastery and pilgrimage site embody art, culture, and learning. It witnessed a pivotal World War II battle. Your entrance ticket grants you time to wander the cloisters, reflecting on the turbulent war history.

    Please note: This tour ends at 19:30 - Rome Drop Off, Hotel American Palace, Rome.
