Overview

Surrounded by steep rugged mountain cliffs that drop dramatically into the deep blue Mediterranean, Sorrento and the Amalfi coastline form an area of outstanding natural beauty, breath-taking views and unique character. The Amalfi Coast is one of the most enchanting coastlines in Europe, thanks to its spectacular landscape and heritage. The coastal road is famous for its hairpin bends and fantastic views. During our tour we will come across the beautiful towns of Positano, Amalfi and Ravello as well as Pompeii.

Itinerary

Day 1 – We depart from the UK for our flight to Italy. Upon arrival we will be met by our guide and transferred to our hotel. Following check in we will enjoy dinner with the remainder of the evening at leisure.

Day 2 – Today we will enjoy the full day at leisure to relax or enjoy what the area has to offer. Dinner at the hotel.

Day 3 – Today we will experience a fully guided drive along the fabulous Amalfi Coast, which is regarded as the most spectacular drive in Europe. The winding cliff top road offers breath-taking panoramic views at every turn. We make a stop just above Positano, yet another splendid jewel of this coastline, which boasts picturesque pink and white villas perched dramatically on the steep hillside. Then we travel onto Amalfi, which gives its name to the whole coast on which it lies. From Amalfi we visit Ravello which nestles eleven hundred feet above the sea in the mountainside. We return to the hotel late afternoon. Dinner at the hotel.

Day 4 – Today we will enjoy a fully guided day excursion to Pompeii & Mount Vesuvius. Pompeii holds an intense fascination for visitors today. Following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 AD, Pompeii lay buried and forgotten for hundreds of years. The town is high on the list of Wonders of the World with excavations beginning in the 18th Century that are still being carried out today. Experience the ancient streets of Pompeii where you can see Baths, Forums and Villas built by the prosperous Romans and the fabulously preserved frescos which adorned the walls and floors of the Villas. We then visit Mount Vesuvius, which dominates the Bay of Naples. It is the only active volcano on the mainland of Europe. Our coach will take us close to the summit of Vesuvius and from here we can walk to the very top and admire the splendid panoramic view across the Bay. We return to the hotel late afternoon. Dinner at the hotel.

Day 5 – Today we enjoy the full day at leisure in Sorrento. We will learn why this is one of the most popular destinations in Italy. We will be able to wander the winding alleys that boast a great variety of trattorias, cafes, bars and shops and feel the vibrant yet romantic atmosphere this beautiful town has to offer. Dinner at the hotel.

Day 6 – Sadly it is time to depart this beautiful region as we board our coach for the transfer to the airport and our return flight back to the UK
