Day 1 UK to Naples to Sorrento

Our VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Naples.

On arrival, we’ll transfer to our base for the week just outside Sorrento. You stay at Grand Hotel Hermitage (4*) or Grand Hotel Vesuvio (4*).


Day 2 Sorrento

Sorrento is a labyrinth of cobbled streets dotted with limoncello stands, gelato shops and lively street vendors. We’ll explore together, taking in highlights such as the greenery-draped 14th-century monastery, Chiostro di San Francesco. Soak up the sea views from Sorrento Park - with views of Mount Vesuvius in the distance.

After all that sightseeing, you might be feeling peckish. Perhaps opt for an afternoon of pizza-making at a local restaurant, where you’ll learn the art of creating delicious traditional Neapolitan pizzas. Delicioso.


Day 3 Pompeii

We head out to explore Pompeii today. This Roman resort town was buried in AD 79 by a sudden and massive eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Most of the locals weren’t able to escape and many remainders of their day-to-day life have been well preserved under thick layers of ash and lava.

Our guided tour will give us a glimpse into the lifestyle of this once thriving town. Many household items are on display to view - as they were hundreds of years ago - providing a fascinating insight into ancient Roman customs, art and trades. Even the walls themselves, with shops signs and graffiti of electoral propaganda, are completely compelling.


Day 4 Amalfi Coast

Brace yourself for one of the world’s most spectacular and famous drives. Italy's Amalfi Coast is a 50km stretch of stunning coastline that winds its way along the Sorrentine Peninsula from Sorrento to Salerno.

Soak up the breathtaking seascapes at every twist and turn - you’ll want to keep your camera at the ready for this. Our first stop is pretty Positano, awash with pastel-painted houses clinging to the cliff edge. From here, we’ll take to the water and speed over to iconic Amalfi by boat, so you’ll have the added bonus of seeing the coastline from the sea. Later, we’ll return to Sorrento by boat.


Day 5 Capri

We’ll journey to the ‘jewel of the Bay of Naples’ - the idyllic island of Capri. As we approach by private boat, you’ll see the island’s famed limestone cliffs soaring from the sparkling blue water. Take in the sights of the island from the water on a private guided boat tour.

We'll then travel up to Capri town via funicular for some free time to wander the harbour and many gelato shops or simply take in the fantastic views.


Day 6 Sorrento

Today is at leisure to explore the tangled streets of Sorrento under your own steam. Perhaps join our optional excursion to mighty Mount Vesuvius to learn about the history and geology of this restless mountain.

After, you’ll stop for a leisurely wine tasting and light lunch at a winery on the fertile slopes of the volcano. This famous Neapolitan wine, Lacrima Christi (tears of Christ), is grown right here giving the grapes a unique flavour.


Day 7 Sorrento

Spend your final day soaking up the sights of Sorrento or perhaps wander down to one of the bathing platforms for a spot of relaxation.

This evening we’ll enjoy a traditional farewell dinner together at a local restaurant on Sorrento Pier. The beautiful views across the sea will only enhance Sorrento’s renowned sunsets.


Day 8 Sorrento to Naples to UK

Transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK.

Upon arrival, your vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
