Today, you fly to Naples and transfer to your hotel on the spectacular Amalfi Coast. 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. This evening we'll get to know one another over a welcome drink before dinner.

Day 2 Pompeii

Few places have captured the imagination quite like Pompeii and today we will discover its sights. 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 79 AD, 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.
