Enjoy an espresso in Rome, Italy’s energetic center, before being whisked away to more relaxed Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento, and Amalfi. You’ll tour Naples, with its palm trees swaying and Vespas whizzing past, before walking the ruins of once thriving Pompeii. Sorrento offers a soothing glimpse across the Bay of Naples, and, if you listen closely enough, perhaps you’ll catch the echo of mythical siren songs that were once said to float across its waters. Meanwhile, unforgettable Amalfi dazzles with beaches, crystalline waters, and nights brimming with potential. Andiamo!
