Pompeii, Capri, Sorrento, Ravello & Amalfi – 3 DAYS
Think your country has great food, history and people? Well think again, because Italy does it better. Their food is so divine it deserves its own UNESCO World Heritage site. Their history basically invented history. And the Italians themselves are so passionate that they make cupid blush. On this Italian tour we visit the best bits. It’s a three-day tour that includes the history of Pompeii, the breath-taking Amalfi Coast and the glitzy glamour of Capri. Come on this trip and find out how the Italians do it better.
We’ll hit the road from Florence bright and early, heading down to Pompeii, the awe inspiring archaeological site which lies in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. The only volcano in mainland Europe to have erupted in the last 100 years, the massive eruption in AD 79 buried the city and people of Pompeii, and today we have an included tour with a local guide to unlock the secrets and history of this awesome site and those who lived here. Back on the road we’ll cruise the Amalfi coast; the stunning sleepy coastal roads leading us down to Sorrento, our base for the next two nights. Later, we head into the sun-dappled Sorrento evening for an orientation walk, a Limoncello demonstration, chocolate tasting and an optional meal at a traditional local restaurant. After dinner we’ll head out into the night for a few cocktails at some local bars, before heading back to the hostel ready for an early start the next day as we head to Capri!
Sunshine, soft summer breeze and the gentle lapping of the waves greets us today, as we jump on our local boat for a cruise to the gorgeous Isle of Capri and a taste of the real ‘dolce vita’. Touring along the coastline we’ll have the chance to check out the incredible scenery on a guided boat tour, before we arrive, ready to explore the playground of the rich and famous.
Browse the designer boutiques, discover true Italian ice-cream, sunbathe on the beach or satisfy your celeb addiction and watch the stars in action before heading up to the stunning Giardini di Augusto for a view of the Faraglioni rocks.
Take a trip up to Anacapri, Capri’s sleepy pinnacle, then jump on our included chair-lift around Mount Solaro for a bird’s eye view of the island or maybe even head out to the amazing Blue Grotto. Alternatively make like a star and catch an open top taxi to meet the boat for our return to Sorrento, the wind in your hair and sunglasses on as your driver navigates the steepest of cliffside roads with the beauty of Capri displayed below in all its glory. On arrival back to the hostel , freshen up a before heading back into Sorrento for more free time – the perfect ending to our second night.
Another bright and early start as we make the most of our final day cruising the spectacular coastal road from Sorrento; photo stops over Positano, views of Praiano, on to Amalfi for and Ravello some free time in our super chilled and super pretty final stops. For a true taste of the Italian south, chill out on the beach and eat the best cakes ever at the local bakery in Amalfi. Then head to Ravello to explore the stunning Villa Rufolo and grab a bite to eat at any of the local delicatessens before we get on the road back to Rome, with our tour ending on arrival back at Plus Florence.
We recommend you make onward travel arrangements for the day after the trip ends, as sometimes the traffic on the Amalfi Coast is very heavy and we cannot guarantee our return time.
