What You Can Expect

2-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri

See incedible ruins at Pompeii, a UNESCO World Heritage Site

Day 1: Rome – Naples – Pompeii – Sorrento (L, D)
Leave your central Rome hotel in the morning, and travel by coach toward sunny Naples – your first destination! Arrive in Naples by late morning, and set off to explore on a leisurely paced walking tour. Centered around its historical center, your tour takes in top Naples attractions like Piazza del Plebiscito – home to the Royal Palace of Naples (Palazzo Reale) –and Galleria Umbero I, with its glass-roofed arcade.

Travel inland to Pompeii, and after lunch in town, visit its UNESCO-listed archeological site with your guide. Hear how Pompeii lay buried under volcanic ash for centuries following Mount Vesuvius’ 79 BC eruption, and marvel at the incredible Roman ruins that abound.

Return to your coach and travel to the Amalfi Coast, where you'll check in to your Sorrento hotel in time for dinner.

Overnight: Standard accomodation at Hotel Michelangelo 4-star or Capodimonte 4-star or Deluxe accomodation at Hotel Ambasciatori or one Hotel of the Manniello Chain 4-star L or Hotel Tramontano 4-star L in Sorrento

Day 2: Sorrento – Capri – Rome (B, L)
Enjoy breakfast, and then travel from Sorrento port to the island of Capri by hydrofoil boat. Hop aboard a rowing boat at Capri’s Marina Grande harbor, and relax as your guide rows you around the island to see the magical Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra). This cave is said to have sunk since prehistoric days, blocking out most of its entrances. Light entering from an underwater cavity combines with the trickle of light from its only entranceway, giving the water its vivid blue effect; prepare to be dazzled!

Return to Marina Grande and travel by minibus to the shabby chic village of Anacapri, perched high above its glamorous Capri town neighbor. Explore at leisure, admiring its romantic wisteria-draped villas with sun-bleached stucco, and gaze down over the beautiful Bay of Naples.

Head back down the hill and visit one of Capri town’s traditional restaurants, enjoying a lunch as delicious as the Mediterranean views. Walk it off on a stroll, passing through Capri’s Piazetta (Piazza Umberto) – Capri’s place to see and be seen! Board another hydrofoil boat in the late afternoon to travel back to mainland Italy, and then hop aboard your air-conditioned coach for the journey back to Rome. Finish your 2-day tour with a central Rome drop-off.

Please note: your Blue Grotto trip is subject to good weather conditions. In the event of storms or heavy rain, your tour visits Faraglioni (a rocky inlet) instead. From 1/11/2015 - 31/03/2016 this tour do not go to Capri island (will go during high season)

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

We loved our tour! The pick up/drop off were wonderfully convenient. Our tour guide on the bus to Naples/Pompeii was knowledgeable and entertaining. Our tour in Pompeii was very informative although the lunch was nothing special. The hotel where we stayed in Sorrento was beautiful spectacular view and the dinner and lunch there were delicious. The highlight was Capri. Our tour guide, Sacha, was truly excellent. We had lots of questions for him and he answered them all with knowledge, humor and stories. Of course the island was beautiful and we would have loved to have more time there. We hope to return and stay at least one night. This tour was definitely worth the time and money.

We, my wife and I, started this trip with a little trepidation. Had just come to Rome the day before. But the fear was totally unfounded. Our guides took very good care of us. Pompeii is amazing, so is Capri and the Blue Grotto. The hotel in Sorrento was good too. Though in the morning it looked like the Blue Grotto might not materialize we got to see it in the afternoon. Our holiday in Italy started with a bang!

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it! The tour guides were all great apart from when we returned to Rome when communication was poor and we missed our drop-off point.
