The beautiful Bay of Naples

Join us in the celebrated Neapolitan Riviera. Beneath its blue skies you'll find some of the Mediterranean's most enticing holiday havens, and enjoy a week of fascinating sights, stunning scenery and Italian hospitality.

Resort Information

This holiday is based beside the beautiful Bay of Naples, where exquisite towns and villages cling to the hillsides, overlooking the water in picture-postcard perfection.

Sorrento

Perched upon its cliff-top, Sorrento seems built between the sky and the sea. Its beating heart is the Piazza Tasso. In the evenings its bars and cafes become the perfect base from which to watch the locals enjoying the passeggiata down the stylish Corso Italia and through the maze of alleyways.

Sant Agata

Just six miles from Sorrento, Sant Agata del Due Golfi enjoys stunning views of both the Bay of Naples and the Bay of Salerno. The village, with its small selection of shops, bars and restaurants, is especially popular with those who prefer the cooler evenings to the bustle of the main resort.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Italy, where you will be met by your Tour Manager and transferred by coach to your chosen hotel.

Day Two

Your first full day is free for you to enjoy at leisure, either at the hotel, or perhaps in Sorrento itself, with its maze of shop-filled alleyways, its two tiny ports, even tinier beach and its blue waters dotted with colourful pedalos and sailboats.

Day Three

Today's highlight is the included visit to the haunting ruins of Roman Pompeii, miraculously 'preserved' by the eruption of Vesuvius in AD79. Having been forgotten for hundreds of years, the city was rediscovered in the 18th Century. Since then, excavations have gradually revealed its magnificent villas, temples and frescoed houses.

Afterwards you'll journey around the bay, past the brooding hulk of Vesuvius to one of Italy's most colourful cities, the great southern Italian capital Naples. Highlights of a guided tour will include Garibaldi and Plebiscito squares, the lively 'Spaccanapoli' quarter, San Carlo Opera House and the Royal Palace. You'll also take in the medieval, turreted Castel Nuovo and the spectacular view from Posillipo Hill, which rises up above the city.

Day Four

With its immense cliffs and dizzy bridges spanning deep gorges, the Amalfi Drive is among the most scenic coastal roads in Europe. Enjoy the unforgettable view above Positano, with its colourful Moorish-style houses, and visit beautiful Amalfi, before moving on to Ravello with its alleys, stairways and roofed passages clinging to the mountainside.

Day Five

Rest and relax in Sorrento, or join today's optional excursion into the countryside of Campania. Beginning with a walking tour of Sorrento's oldest quarters, the tour will also include visits to a local wine cellar, an ancient olive press and a working mozzarella farm, where the cheese is still hand-made. There will be opportunities to taste and purchase regional produce, and the day will also include a scenic drive through some of the Sorrentine peninsula's smaller towns, where spectacular views of the due golfi - Naples and Salerno - add to the enjoyment of the day.

Day Six

From Sorrento we cross to Capri, the 'Isle of Dreams'. Enjoy spectacular views from Anacapri's Villa San Michele, take a chair-lift ride to the summit of Solare (payable locally) and visit the island's main town to wander the Augustus Gardens or browse the host of exclusive designer stores. An optional boat trip to the famous Blue Grotto will be bookable on the day.

Day Seven

A final day to enjoy the hotel and discover the charms of Sorrento.

Day Eight

After a wonderful week, transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.

Further Information

Hotel transfer times

The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately one hour from Naples and four hours from Rome.

Combining hotel transfers

We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Meals in Italy

Guests on half-board arrangements will be served a three-course evening meal, and can expect a first course of traditional pasta or soup, a main meat or fish course accompanied by one or two types of vegetable, and a simple dessert of fruit, cake or Italian ice cream. Breakfasts will usually consist of bread rolls, jam, cereal, ham, cheese, fruit juice, tea and coffee. Menus will vary from hotel to hotel, but choice will be more limited than in a normal restaurant. In some instances, individual guests who have booked with the hotel independently may be offered a different menu from those who are staying at the hotel as part of a package tour.

Entrance fees

Since some attractions visited offer free admission to visitors at certain times of year, we do not include entrance fees. These will be payable locally where applicable. This applies to excursions that are included in the price of your holiday and to excursions booked as optional extras.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Italian hotel room tax

Some regions of Italy have introduced a room tax of between 1 EURO and 3 EURO per person per night, payable directly by the guest to the hotel on check-out. You will be advised by your tour manager in resort if a particular hotel is implementing this charge.

Airport development fees

An Airport Development Fee has been introduced at a few UK Airports. You will be required to pay this charge at the following airports prior to checking in for your flight: Blackpool, Durham Tees Valley, Newquay and Norwich. The amount varies from airport to airport, but it is generally between GBP5 and GBP10 per person. Please visit the airport's website for further information.

Itinerary changes
