Itinerary

Description

Join us for a fantastic break among the sheer cliffs and sun-dappled lemon groves of the Bay of Naples, ancestral Greek territory that became a holiday heaven for mad Roman emperors and well-heeled senators, where Spartacus went on the rampage and then later so did Vesuvius, and where generations since have been intoxicated by the fragrant air, gorgeous food, balmy weather and panoramic bay views.

Air Itinerary

Friday: Make your way to the airport for your flight to Naples. Upon arrival we will transfer you to your hotel for check in and free time before dinner and the first of seven nights' stay.

Saturday: After breakfast, the day is at leisure until dinner.

Sunday: Another day of leisure, or you can join our optional Amalfi Drive excursion (£37pp). We drive along the Amalfi coastline, said to be the most spectacular highway in Europe. The tour stops first just above Positano, which boasts picturesque white villas perched dramatically on the steep hillside. Then on to Amalfi; once a powerful and prosperous Maritime Republic, and now a thriving holiday resort. The cluster of white tightly-packed houses rising up the hillside is dominated by the mosaic-clad St Andrew's Cathedral, a fabulous confection of Romanesque, Norman–Gothic, Byzantine and Arab styles. From Amalfi we visit Ravello which nestles 1,100 feet above the sea and is famous for its terraced gardens and gorgeous buildings. Chief of these is the Villa Rufolo, part museum, part concert and exhibition venue, part spectacular beauty spot and known as 'a miniature Alhambra'. If you wish you can also visit the museum in Ravello's cathedral.

Monday: Today we set off early to embark on a full-day excursion by boat to the lovely island of Capri. For centuries Capri has lured generations of artists, writers and celebrities with its outstanding natural beauty and, more recently, its top-end designer boutiques and bustling café culture. A short funicular railway takes you from the harbour of Marina Grande to Capri town, and your visit includes a walking tour around its little streets and alleyways.


You may wish to take a stroll among the balmy green Gardens of Augustus, which offer good sea views, or perhaps take a boat trip around the island to see the Blue Grotto. Later on we carry on to Anacapri, a little higher up in the mountains, where there is an optional visit to Villa San Michele, a house-museum offering the best views on the island, or alternatively you could take the chairlift from Anacapri to the summit of Monte Solaro. We return to Sorrento in time to enjoy dinner at the hotel.

Tuesday: Today is at leisure to enjoy the area until dinner.

Wednesday: After breakfast the coach will arrive to take you on today's excursion to Pompeii, a place which scarcely needs any introduction. First excavated in 1748, the site of Pompeii stands on a great plateau within plain view of Mount Vesuvius, its Nemesis, in the distance. Here you have the opportunity to see actual Roman houses and streets in situ, with frescoes still visible on the walls of some of the houses, and graffiti in the cart-rutted streets. The scale of Pompeii is surprising, and there's a lot to see, so it's not a bad idea to take a guidebook, plus a sunhat and some water as there isn't much cover and it can get very hot. After we return, the rest of the day is at leisure.

Thursday: Breakfast and a free day to laze by the pool or do some souvenir-hunting.

Friday: Breakfast and then transfer to the airport for your flight home.
