    Amalfi - La Dolce Vita

    If one shot of our Limoncello two-day tour just isn’t enough, linger a bit longer on this three-day La Dolce Vita excursion. You’ll travel from Rome towards Naples, with medieval villages to punctuate the way. Touring Naples, you can’t help but contrast its eclectic energy with the eerie desolation you’ll discover amongst the ruins of nearby Pompeii, which long ago suffocated from Mt. Vesuvius’s sudden eruption. Sorrento offers the chance to breathe fresh coastal air and rest your eyes on the Bay of Naples, while an excursion to Capri delights with its shimmering Blue Grotto

    ITINERARY

    DAY 1: ROME > NAPLES > POMPEII > SORRENTO

    See Southern Italy highlights on your minitour from Rome. Your journey begins heading south along the so-called Sun Highway, crossing the fertile Roman countryside and the area known as Castelli Romani, dotted with enchanting medieval villages and arriving in Naples, one of the largest and well-known cities in Italy. Short panoramic tour climbing up to Vomero hill to enjoy beautiful views over the Gulf of Naples with the Vesuvius, Capri, Ischia and Procida and the city below; time to take some nice pictures.

    Descending towards the port of Mergellina you will leave the city and travel south toward Mount Vesuvius, to reach the town of Ercolano where we will stop for lunch. The lunch break will be served in a first class hotel in Ercolano, set in monumental grounds with one of the best examples of what eclectic gardens were during the 1700s. After lunch you will reach Pompeii to enter into the world-famous site with Skip the Line tickets. Visit the haunting ruins of Pompeii, traveling back in time to the tragic days in 79 AD when the silent Mount Vesuvius suddenly erupted, covering the prosperous Roman city in deadly volcanic ashes and poisonous gases, leaving this prosperous city crystallized until our days. You’ll learn how people lived at that time, visiting houses and “bars” of the time, admiring frescoes and mosaics to imagine how rich and prosperous was the city before the dreadful day. After the visit, you will drive along the Sorrentine Coast, arriving in Sorrento for dinner (dress code: jacket for men) and an overnight in
    your new hotel.
    Hotel: Michelangelo (or similar)

    DAY 2: SORRENTO > CAPRI > SORRENTO

    After breakfast you’ll be embarked to Capri island. Depending on weather conditions, you’ll take a boat ride to the popular and dreamy “Grotta Azzurra” (Blue Grotto), where sunlight passes into an underwater cavity and shines through the seawater, creating a magical blue reflection. After returning to the port you’ll board on a minibus for a scenic drive to Anacapri, 918 feet (280 meters) above the sea level. You’ll see wonderful views of the bay of Naples before continuing to a local restaurant for lunch. After lunch you can take advantage of some free time to explore Capri at your leisure or to go shopping. You’ll return to Marina Grande back to the mainland to return to Sorrento for dinner and overnight stay.

    DAY 3: SORRENTO > ROME
    Breakfast at the hotel and free time. Departure for Rome in the afternoon.
