Your 2-day tour from Rome to the Campania region of Southern Italy starts with a coach ride to Naples, followed by a visit to the ancient city of Pompeii, a World Heritage Site known for its well-preserved archaeological and volcanic ruins. You’ll end the day on the spectacular Amalfi Coast in the town of Sorrento, where overnight accommodation is included (select your level of hotel when booking).

The next morning, head out on a day trip to the island of Capri, home of the Blue Grotto, before returning to Rome by coach.
(For winter trips, when the tour to Capri does not operate, you’ll spend the day at your leisure in Sorrento).

Itinerary

Day 1: Rome – Naples – Pompeii – Sorrento 
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 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 in Hotel Michelangelo (4*) or similar, Superior Accommodation in hotel Imperial Tramontano (4* superior) or similar


Day 2: Sorrento – Capri – Rome 
Please note: from Nov 1st to Mar 31st this tour will not visit Capri island on Day 2.
The excursion is replaced with a day of free time in Sorrento

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 Piazzetta (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 in the evening.

Please note: If the Blue Grotto is not accessible due to tidal conditions, you will be taken by boat to the Faraglioni Rocks. If weather conditions do not allow the excursion by boat, you will take a land excursion of the island

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. Please, 2 days is definitely not enough. We didn't upgrade out tickets, so the hotel wasn't the best, but it was nicer than some others and not as nice as others. That is the only issue I had about that. It was an amazing trip, but since we only did the two day option, it was NOT long enough.

Our review is long overdue. I did not want to write too soon as we were quite disappointed and I wanted to wait before formulating my review. The tour sights are undeniably amazing. The tour was a bit organized the day time we went. It was a rainy day and we were told to meet in front of their offices in Rome. It was chaotic. We were told to meet 645am but did not depart until 810am. Naples is only a scenic stop. Lunch was ok. Pompeii ruins stour started at 230pm then chaos again. We were always being transferred to new busses along with our lugage as we were overnighting on this tour and then with new guides. we stayed at hotel tramonto-yes, superior upgrade but snobby staff. We arrived so late that evening due to chaotic itinery that we did not get to enjoy Sorrento at all. However, the dinner at the hotel was very good. Next day, we had various tour guides once again. all in all, we had 5 tour guides on this 2 day trip. It seemed like we were always getting passed off to another guide. It was a long bus trip back. Tour said we would be back 830-9pm but it was 10pm by the time we were dropped off at our hotel. Too long of a trip. Very bad communication. Lots of waiting around between / for bus transfer and new guide. I realize there are majority of great reviews and that would go to the guides. They do their best. Cities are wonderful. Also, we went int late September and at the end of the tourist season, I think the locals, guides, drivers etc...are exhausted and have had enough of tourists. I would recommend touring this area just not this particular tour.

Everything but this was GREAT. The tour includes hotel pick up, but the driver was late coming for us at our hotel, so we were the last ones to get on a full bus. There were places across the back with room for three adults, but they told us that we had to sit there. The people already there were quite put out. You might be able to put five children in those seats, but the five of us adults were uncomfortable every second on the long ride down to Sorrento.
