Itinerary

You’ll fly to Naples today and transfer to your hotel in the Bay of Naples. Famous for its beauty, mild climate and fascinating history, the area’s attractions range from lovely resorts and idyllic islands to world-famous archaeological sites. With its picture-perfect streets, laid-back café culture and great cuisine, where better to experience the Italian lifestyle.


Located close to the UNESCO-listed ruins of Pompeii, our hotel offers magnificent views over Mount Vesuvius, and this evening we’ll get to know one another over a welcome drink before dinner.
Few places have captured the imagination quite like Pompeii and today we will discover its sights. Our explorations begin with a walking tour of the modern city visiting the Shrine of Our Lady of Pompeii, before attention turns to the remarkable archaeological site. Pompeii’s sheer scale is immense and on our guided tour you will be able to imagine what life was like before Vesuvius erupted in 79AD, smothering the town and its inhabitants in hot ash. As we wander through the streets we’ll see villas decorated with frescos and brightly coloured mosaics, the remarkable Roman baths and spectacular amphitheatre.


There are many pizzerias and restaurants located within walking distance of our hotel and this evening has been left free for you to dine out with your travelling companions, if you wish.
You are free to explore further at your own pace today. Our hotel is situated in the centre of Pompeii and is opposite the local train station, should you wish to venture further afield. Alternatively, why not join our optional excursion to the beautiful island of Capri.


Dinner is served at the hotel this evening.
This morning we offer an optional excursion to the Roman town of Herculaneum which was buried by the same eruption that destroyed Pompeii. We’ll enjoy a guided tour of the ruins here, which are actually better preserved than their more famous counterpart.


If you prefer, you can relax and enjoy the facilities at your hotel, which include a roof-top terrace with panoramic views of Mount Vesuvius.


Dinner will be served at the hotel this evening.
Enjoy another day at leisure or join our optional excursion to Mount Vesuvius, which last erupted in 1944. Having admired Vesuvius from a distance so far, this is your opportunity to experience it close up.


This evening is free for you to relax with your travelling companions and maybe enjoy dinner in a local restaurant.
Today you may choose to join our full-day, optional excursion which takes us on a scenic, coastal drive to the towns of Amalfi and Ravello.


Dinner will be served at the hotel this evening.
We’ll spend the final day of our holiday in the lively seaside resort of Sorrento, which boasts stunning scenery as well as elegant restaurants, pavement cafés and a variety of shops. In the company of your Tour Manager, enjoy the bustle of the main square, stroll through narrow lanes, dip into traditional trattorias and step inside intriguing ateliers. Limoncello is a popular drink in this part of Italy and we’ll visit a producer to find out more. As you stand amongst the colourful lemon groves from which the main ingredient hails, you’ll enjoy a tasting and learn about the processes used to create this traditional Italian liqueur.


This evening we’ll enjoy a farewell get-together and dinner in the hotel.
We’ll transfer to the airport and fly back to the UK today.

Please note: This holiday includes walking in areas of rough ground, gradients and steps, often with no hand rails to offer assistance.

Mount Vesuvius

Mount Vesuvius

from £42

Take an exciting drive up Mount Vesuvius – the volcano that destroyed the town of Pompeii in 79AD, and mainland Europe’s only active volcano. Leaving the vehicle behind you can walk right up to the crater to enjoy breathtaking views of the Bay of Naples to each side before peering down into the depths of the crater, where you’ll see a river of solidified lava and sometimes plumes of rising steam.

Half Day - Moderate to Strenuous Walking - Highly recommended

Prebookable Package

Amalfi Coast and Ravello / Mount Vesuvius

Island of Capri

Island of Capri

from £88

You’ll sail to the enchanting island of Capri, which has been the haunt of the international jet set for many decades. It’s also charmed a Roman emperor or two in its time, and you can still see the ruins of Tiberius’ magnificent Villa Jovis and admire the views from the cliffs over which he is said to have thrown his enemies! On our guided tour you’ll get to see the Faraglioni Rocks and visit the wonderful Gardens of Augustus where you’ll find colourful terraces filled with flowers. You may also have time to take the chairlift (at extra cost) from Anacapri to the highest point of the island.

Full Day – Moderate Walking - Not to be missed

Herculaneum

Herculaneum

from £48

Join us on a visit to Herculaneum, buried after Vesuvius' eruption and considered one of the most evocative archaeological sites. Herculaneum has been painstakingly excavated, revealing some luxurious buildings preserved by the ash, giving an insight into the lives of the wealthy former inhabitants.

Half Day - Moderate Walking - Historical Interest

Amalfi Coast and Ravello

Amalfi Coast and Ravello

from £53

Get your cameras at the ready for this full-day tour which begins with a drive along the stunning Amalfi coastline. First stop is Amalfi, a picturesque town of whitewashed houses carved into the surrounding mountains.

Equally striking is the village of Ravello which perches above Amalfi affording panoramic views of the Mediterranean Sea. Here you might like to visit the impressive Arabesque-style Villa Rufolo and the gardens of Villa Cimbrone – a wonderful blend of English and Italian landscaping styles dotted with marble and bronze statues. (Entrance fees payable locally).

Full Day - Moderate Walking - Beautiful Scenery

Accommodation

The family-run hotel is located in central Pompeii. Built in the 19th century, this elegant Italian villa has been restored to its former glory.
