From 1 April to 31 October: every day
Duration: 3 days
Day 1: Leaving Rome in a southerly direction, we take the “Highway of the Sun” crossing the fertile Roman countryside through the area known as the ‘Castelli Romani’. Approximately halfway along the highway, you will be able to see the Abbey of Montecassino, noted for its famous battle and complete destruction during the Second World War. Descending towards the port of Mergellina and following the coastal road, we arrive in the ancient fishing quarter of Santa Lucia and see the impressive Castel dell’Ovo (photo stop). Upon leaving the city, we cross the fertile valley of Mount Vesuvius, passing the towns of Ercolano, Torre del Greco and Torre Annunziata before finally arriving at Pompeii countries of The Napolitan Gulf. Anyway where we stop first for lunch. After that we will visit the excavations on foot with a local guide on an archaeological journey through the ancient city. In approx. 2 hours you will see some of what has been discovered in more than 1,700 years since Pompeii was covered by ashes during the eruption of Vesuvius in the year 79 AD. Through the remains and ruins of this ancient city, we can picture the everyday life of the Imperial Age and imagine the panic felt by the people in those last few minutes before the city was so disastrously buried. During this excursion we will visit a coral and cameo factory where we will have the opportunity to admire and purchase items of this ancient craft that dates back to Greek times. At the end of the visit to Pompeii we continue by bus along one of the most beautiful panoramic roads of Napolitan Gulf known as the “Sorrento Coast“, to which the city of Sorrento gives its name. Arrival at hotel, dinner and overnight.
Day 2: The Napolitan Gulf tour continues after breakfast transfer to the port of Sorrento and after approx. 20 minutes by jetboat arrive at the port of Marina Grande on the island of Capri. Board motorboats and then rowboats to visit the Blue Grotto(if weather and sea conditions permit), followed by a panoramic tour of Capri and Anacapri by minibus and on foot. After your included lunch, you will have some free time before taking the boat to rejoin the daily tour coach for the journey back to Sorrento. Dinner and overnight stay.
Day 3: Following breakfast in the hotel, you will have the rest of the day at leisure to explore the popular and attractive town of Sorrento.
