Day 1: Rome – Naples – Pompeii – Sorrento (L, D)
Leave central Rome 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 archaeological 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.

Day 2: Sorrento (B, D)
After breakfast, your day in Sorrento is yours to spend doing as you wish. Perhaps take a stroll along Corso Italia and climb the steps to see 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 browse the shops for souvenirs of the gorgeous Amalfi Coast.

After getting acquainted with the island, you have the option of going to see the magical Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzura). Simply head to Marina Grande harbor and relax as your guide rows you around the island to the cave. The intriguing site 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. Enjoy a nice lunch on the island.

Check in to your hotel in the late afternoon and spend the rest of your day at leisure.

Really enjoyed the tour and trip. Such beautiful cities and loved how we were pretty much on our own. The last day back was a little rough with the amount of time to come back, was not prepared but really enjoyed the tour guides.

This tour was excellent, we enjoyed Pompeii, maybe it little too long, Sorrento was a very beautiful place and so it was Capri. we recomend this trip.the only negative was the Capril Hotel's bed was extremely hard to sleep on, other than that we had a great view from the hotel.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2014

The 5 day trip is perfect. With two nights each in Sorrento and Capri and free days, it's possible to see the real Campania you will not see in 3 days or less. Amazing scenery and food. And the free days of the 5 day tour were key.

Choosing the top hotel option was also key to a fantastic experience. The Ambasciatori in Sorrento is beautiful and includes beautiful 4-course dinners in the price. It sits on the cliff and is perfect. In Capri, Cassa Morgano is very good. Although not deserving of 5 stars it claims to have. And the view from the hotel is better than anything you will see on any day trip. Capri is one place that lives up to the marketing photos, but only if you stay overnight(s) long enough to see it.

Most important to the trip was the free days. Taking a day to Amalfi from Sorrento was an excellent choice. It's amazing. And in Capri, having a day to walk along the coast and find idyllic bays was the best.

The locations deserve 5 stars but unfortunately the local tour company's disorganization let it down. Information was sometimes confused and conflicting between written information and verbal information provided by guides. On several occasions guides got upset at people for the guides' own mistakes. You need to think on your feet to make sure you're in the right place at the right time.

Pompeii guide was fantastic! Capri guide was great! Tour however did not hang together leaving the client to basically figure out where to go and what to do... no tour group feeling was created due to fact that different duration tours were combined...


3 star rating: Worth doing May 2015

I thought the guide on the bus to Napoli and Pompeii was a little weak new?. He didn't keep us informed of the fact that there were several tours at the same time and which bus was to continue to Sorrento and which was to return to Rome. The restrooms at the stop on the way down was not up to international standards. Our Pompeii guide was very skilled and informative. We liked the Villa Maria hotel in Sorrento and the Bougainville in Anacapri. The return to Napoli was a total snafu with us waiting at dock No. 7 until 5 minutes before the boat was leaving and Francesca didn't bring any tickets. Very unprofesional.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this September 2015

The tour is 2 days of guided tours with 3 days by yuorself. The many bus transfers are chaotic and travellers had to transfer their luggage themselves from different buses and from the ferry. I booked the deluxe hotels and they were not good value for money. Ther Royal hotel in Sorrento gave me a room that was 10 feet x 10 feet with the view of another building and the Best WEstern gave me a room with the view of a wall and no working AC for a whole night and half a day. Will never book another extended tour on Viator again. Very dissappointed.
