Itinerary

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 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: 3-star Hotel Villa Maria, 4- star Hotel Vesuvio or Art Hotel Gran Paradiso or Hotel Michelangelo, 4-star Superior Hotel Ambasciatori or one Hotel of the Manniello Chain in Sorrento

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. Return to your hotel in the evening for dinner.

Overnight: 3-star Hotel Villa Maria, 4- star Hotel Vesuvio or Art Hotel Gran Paradiso or Hotel Michelangelo, 4-star Superior Hotel Ambasciatori or one Hotel of the Manniello Chain in Sorrento

Day 3: Sorrento – Capri (B, L)
Check out of your Sorrento hotel after breakfast, head to the port and relax on your ferry or hydrofoil crossing to the island of Capri. Enjoy a short tour of the island by coach, exploring Capri town to see highlights like the Piazetta (Piazza Umberto), the islands liveliest central square.

After getting acquainted with the island, you have the option of going to see the magical Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzura) at your own expense. 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.

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

Please note: your Blue Grotto trip is subject to good weather conditions. If the trip is cancelled, it may be possible to rearrange it for Day 4, instead.

Overnight: 3-star Hotel La Bougainville or Hotel La Carmencita, 4-star Hotel Capri, 4-star Superior Hotel Casa Morgano or Hotel Cesare Augustus in Capri

Day 4: Capri (B)
Enjoy breakfast and then enjoy a full day of free time to explore Capri at your own pace. Perhaps take a swim around the glorious Bay of Naples, lounge on the beaches, or visit the colorful village of Anacapri, perched high on a hill above its glamorous Capri Town neighbor.

Overnight: 3-star Hotel La Bougainville or Hotel La Carmencita, 4-star Hotel Capri, 4-star Superior Hotel Casa Morgano or Hotel Cesare Augustus in Capri

Day 5: Capri – Rome (B)
Spend a leisurely morning enjoying breakfast and doing some last-minute sightseeing around the island. In the afternoon, check out of your hotel and leave the island. Cross the sea by ferry or hydrofoil to Naples, and then travel back to Rome by air-conditioned coach. Your tour finishes with a drop-off in central Rome in the evening.

This tour was amazing!

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.
