Day 2: Rome – Naples – Pompeii – Naples (B)
Leave your hotel in the morning and travel with your guide to Rome Termini Station. Board your train and relax on the 3-hour journey south to Naples, the larger-than-life capital of Campania.

Then, visit the National Archeological Museum (Museo Archeologico Nazionale), one of the largest museums of its kind. Browse the extensive array of finds from the ancient cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and discover an Aladdin’s Cave of Egyptian relics in the Borgia Collection. See mosaics and an intriguing collection of erotic statues that date back to the days of Ancient Rome.

In the late afternoon, board a train and travel inland to the archeological site at Pompeii, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. On a walking tour, learn about Mount Vesuvius’ ancient eruption that buried the city for centuries, and puzzle over the fossils and ruins that are strewn around the site.

Options include a visit to the ruins at Herculaneum or a tour of Cappella Sansevero – an incredible chapel tucked away in the backstreets of Naples.

Day 4: Naples – Mount Vesuvius – Sorrento
Check out of your Naples hotel and travel by train to Sorrento, a lively town near the glimmering Amalfi Coast. On arrival, swap your mode of transport for an air-conditioned bus and travel inland to Mount Vesuvius. See solidified rivers of ancient lava as you travel to the volcano’s foothills, and then hop off your bus to walk to the top. The walk is the best way to experience Vesuvius and, after 45 minutes of steady-paced walking, you’ll hit the top. Gaze into the craters and walk along the ridge, soaking up volcanic views set against the Bay of Naples. After taking pictures, walk back down to your bus and travel back to Sorrento.

Activities are at your own expense.

Day 6: Sorrento – Amalfi Coast (B)
Leave Sorrento and travel along the coast to either Amalfi or Positano (depending on hotel availability). The two towns are located at the heart of the Amalfi Coast region, an area popular for its scenery with rocky cliffs that plunge dramatically into azure seas.

After checking in to your hotel, head out on a cliff-top walk along the rugged coastal trails that zigzag through the headlands. The foot trails are steep and rocky, but the views are a worthwhile reward!
