Itinerary

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 take a panoramic view of the lively city and its beautiful bay.

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

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 accommodation at Hotel Michelangelo or similar 4-star superior accommodation or Hotel Tramontano 4-star L or similar 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.

Return to Marina Grande and travel by minibus to the village of Anacapri, perched high above its glamorous Capri town neighbor. Explore at leisure, admiring the wisteria-draped villas with sun-bleached stucco, and look out over the 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: The 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.

This tour started out really well with a prompt hotel pickup. The bus was comfortable and the guide was knowledgable. We stopped in Naples for lunch. This for us was the only low light of the two days. We felt the food was awful. From there we went to Pompeii. Our guide a Wilma was amazing. She was so knowledgable about this unbelievable place. This site is defiantly worth a visit. We then travelled on to Sorrento. We were pleased we paid a little extra for our hotel. It was wonderful. Situated overlooking the sea and close to night markets it was a perfect location. The dinner was one of the best meals we have ever eaten. The next day after a leisurely tasty breakfast we caught a ferry to Capri. Here we visited Capri and Annacapri. They are both beautiful quaint villages although a little crowded. The lunch at Annacapri was lovely. We were glad the Blue a Grotto was open. We were pleased we didn't have the 3 hour wait the morning people experienced. After this we caught a ferry to Naples and a bus back to Rome. We were dropped back at our hotel. It was a fantastic two days.

My husband and I booked an 8 day stay in Rome. While we had plenty we wanted to see in Rome, we also wanted to see other parts of Italy. I was all set to book a one day tour to Pompeii and a separate one day tour to Capri when I found this tour. I was hesitant to book because I read a lot of reviews about people being annoyed about changing buses and wasted time. After our trip, I have to say that changing buses didn't bother us and during down time we sat in a cafe and sipped cappuccino. So, I guess it depends how much you are willing to go with the flow. We enjoyed our tour of Pompeii, but our stay in Sorrento was our favorite. Even without the upgrade option, we so enjoyed our hotel. It had beautiful views of the bay and Mt. Vesuvius that we enjoyed while eating dinner. Only down side was that I couldn't use my hair straightener due to a voltage difference at the hotel. Our day in Capri was AMAZING. We did some shopping in the morning and the blue grottos in the afternoon. One couple didn't want to do the shopping, so they asked if they could go swimming at the nearby beach. The tour guide was okay with this, but asked if they would meet back with the group after the shopping. So, if you are not into shopping, there are ways around it. Overall the trip was fun, informative, and romantic!! Totally worth it. Plus, we had a great tour guide named Carlos. He made the trip really easy to understand and fun. Do yourself a favor and book this tour!

Loved it!! The sights were fantastic. All guides were pleasant and professional with the exception of the Pompeii guide. She seemed unenthusiastic, as if she would have preferred to have been anywhere else other than where she was.

Smooth and well coordinated tour in Italy. We skipped lines and made traveling around this area so much easier. Food and lodging was pretty good too and guides were friendly the entire time. I would recommend doing this trip if you are trying to see many things within a short period of time.

I really would like to give this ten stars! This is one of the most well organized tours I have ever been on. The hotel I stayed in was wonderful I chose the four star option and all of the local guides were some of the best I had my whole vacation. The guide in Naples I forget his name was SO passionate and really made the place come alive. The guide in Capri Sascha was so amazing and ran the day so smoothly I wanted to hug him in the end. The day in Capri was one of my favorite days of the entire vacation it was so beautiful and the blue grotto was an absolute dream come true. I cannot say enough about how amazing this tour was, definitely recommended a million percent! Carrani tours in general seem to be very well organized and a good group to travel with.
