Day 2: Naples/Sorrento (1B, 1D)

We head off by private transport to our accommodation, an agriturismo just outside of Sorrento. En route, visit the famed site of Pompeii, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. After a tour with an expert local guide, there will be some free time to explore on your own before heading to our accommodation.

Additional Notes:
For the duration of our trip, we stay at the same agriturismo. Located about a 30 min walk uphill from Sorrento, our accommodation is at a working lemon farm that has opened its doors to tourism. The 'agriturismo' is surrounded by open terraces and groves of lemon trees protected by wooden pergolas made with chestnut.

Day 4: Sorrento (1B, 1D)

The path can be rough underfoot and a little exposed, but well worth it for the spectacular scenery and the chance to be so close to nature and "the Gods". The outstanding beauty of the Amalfi Coast can only be fully appreciated on foot.

The walk finishes in Positano where you will have time to explore the bustling resort if you wish. Take a scenic public boat ride back to Sorrento and transfer back to the agriturismo.

Boat (1.00-2.00 hours)

Day 6: Sorrento (1B, 1D)

Board a ferry to Capri. Hop on board the 'funicolare' to explore Capri Town's piazza.

Walk along the trails on the island, go swimming, or brush shoulders with the more well-off island inhabitants at fancy shops.
