What You Can Expect

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

Explore the UNESCO-listed ruins of ancient Pompeii

Day 1: Rome – Sorrento (L, D)
Leave central Rome in the morning, and travel by coach toward sunny Naples. On arrival in the late morning, set off to explore on a leisurely paced walking tour. Your tour takes in top attractions like Piazza del Plebiscito, home to the Royal Palace of Naples (Palazzo Reale), and Galleria Umbero I, with its eye-catching glass-roofed arcade.

Travel inland to Pompeii, and after lunch in town, visit its UNESCO-listed archaeological site with your guide. Hear how Pompeii lay buried under volcanic ash for centuries following Mt 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: 4-star or superior 4-star hotel in Sorrento

Day 2: Capri (B, L, D)
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 the island to see the magical Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra). This intriguing cave is said to have sunk dramatically since prehistoric times, 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.

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

Head back down the hill and visit one of Capri Town’s traditional trattorias for lunch. Walk it off on a stroll, passing through Capri’s swanky Piazetta (Piazza Umberto) – Capri’s place to see and be seen. Board another hydrofoil boat in the late afternoon and return to Sorrento in time for dinner.

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.

Overnight: 4-star or superior 4-star hotel in Sorrento

Day 3: Sorrento – Rome (B)
After breakfast, spend the morning in Sorrento at your leisure. Perhaps take a stroll along Corso Italia and climb the steps to see atmospheric Piazza Tasso, tucked away in the heart of Sorrento Old Town. Soak up views of the sun-soaked cliffs, where Sorrento’s houses almost seem to be stacked on top of each other, and then shop for any last-minute souvenirs of the gorgeous Amalfi Coast.

Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time, and then return to Rome by coach. Your tour finishes at your central Rome hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

A fabulous three day trip, to summarise a highlight is almost impossible but Pompeii was up there, the Island of Capri and the Blue Grotto was also high on the list, then a free day to tour the Amalfi Coast. We stayed at the Michelangelo hotel in Sorrento. This is a fabulous hotel but the night we stayed here the power kept failing all night and every time the power came back n again it switched TV on which of course would wake us up, No mention of this at check-out, not even a hint of an apology anyway, it did not detract from a wonderful three days with outstanding guides.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

This was probably our favorite part of our entire trip... with the exception of seeing the Pope... Our trip was March 14-16th and even though the weather wasn't ideal, we were able to see the Blue Grotto... which closed right after our group went in... we were praying to my St. Christopher and Mary charms and it worked! For the money you cannot beat this deal, our tour guides both en route Francesca and in Pompeii Sergio were fantastic, especially Sergio, his knowledge of Pompeii was amazing, we learned so much, if we had walked on our own we never would have known what we were looking at... and there is a lot. Although we didn't spend the allotted time in Naples, it didn't take away from trip, our guide gave us a constant history of the City en route. We enjoyed the extra time in Pompeii and Sorrento. Because we were off season, all our meals were included and it was amazing from lunch after our Pompeii trip to dinner at our restaurant, which was the Michaelangelo. Both Capri and AnaCapri were amazing, do not miss, we were lucky to see the famed Blue Grotto and walk all around the island pretty much empty in March. Again, lunch was amazing, we met some great people from all over, did some shopping. Again, we were off season so many stores and attractions were closed and the weather wasn't ideal it's a trade off, but we were very pleased. Fantastic price for what is included
