What You Can Expect

6-Day Rome and Southern Italy Tour Including Naples, Pompeii and Amalfi Coast

Amalfi Coast

Your 6-day tour begins and ends in Rome, where your 4-star centrally located hotel puts you conveniently near iconic attractions like the Roman Forum and the Colosseum. In addition to a guided walking tour, your stay in Rome includes independent sightseeing time so you can visit other attractions that interest you.

Days 3 to 5 are spent in Campania – southern Italy’s popular coastal region that sprawls alongside the Tyrrhenian Sea. The area’s biggest draw is the sun-baked Amalfi Coast, where glamorous villages cling to jagged cliffs like little gems glistening above the sea. Enjoy two nights of 4-star accommodation here in the town of Amalfi, and explore the highlights of surrounding Campania both independently and with a guide, including the region's bustling capital, Naples, and ancient Pompeii. See below for details on each day of the tour.

Please note: The listed price does not include a city tax, payable at the time of hotel check-in. The tax is required by the hotels and is not within our control.

Itinerary

Day 1: Rome
Start your tour with an included airport transfer from Rome Fiumicino Airport to your Rome hotel. Alternatively, if you are already in Rome, you can check into your hotel in the afternoon and then spend the rest of your day at leisure.

Overnight: 4-star Hotel Gioberti in Rome

Day 2: Rome (B)
After breakfast, head out on a 3-hour walking tour with your guide to discover Rome. Starting from Largo di Torre Argentina – a lesser-known piazza boasting Roman temple ruins – your route continues to Campo de Fiori, Rome’s busiest and brashest, yet beautiful, central square. Here, you’ll find yourself right in the center of historical Rome, where many of the city’s big-name attractions are found. Visit Piazza Navona with its Baroque fountains and romantic cafes, and then see unmistakable monuments like the Pantheon. Wander past the Spanish Steps and throw a coin in Trevi Fountain for good luck!

Your walking tour ends in the center of Rome – perfect for sightseeing independently if you wish. Spend the rest of your night in Rome at leisure.

Overnight: 4-star Hotel Gioberti in Rome

Day 3: Rome – Naples – Pompeii – Amalfi (L, D)

Leave Rome early and head south to Campania by air-conditioned coach. Your journey lasts roughly three hours, but includes stops along the way to stretch your legs and buy breakfast. Arrive in Naples by late morning and head straight out to explore with your guide.

Concentrating on Naples’ UNESCO Cultural Heritage Site (its historic center), your leisurely paced walking tour takes in key sites like San Carlo Opera House -- one of Europe’s oldest working opera houses -- and Piazza del Plebiscito, the central square that’s flanked by four eye-catching palaces. Stop to admire the Royal Palace of Naples (Palazzo Reale), and learn how it was built by the Spanish and then renovated later by succeeding Bourbon kings. Walk through Galleria Umberto I, marveling at its glass-roofed arcade, and then hop back on board your coach.

Leave Naples and travel to a coral and cameo factory called Donadio. This family owned factory started one of the most ancient Neapolitan traditions – the making of carved coral jewelry. See craftsmen at work and enjoy a break for lunch in the restaurant.

From here, continue to UNESCO-listed Pompeii to visit the excavations of this ancient Roman city with your guide. Hear how it was blanketed under volcanic ash for centuries following the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 BC, and gaze at the incredible ruins that are scattered around. Return to your coach and travel toward the Amalfi Coast, passing through scenic villages like Positano. Check into your Amalfi hotel, enjoy dinner and then spend your night at leisure.

Overnight: 4-star Grand Hotel Bussola in Amalfi

Day 4: Amalfi Coast (B, D)
After breakfast, the day is yours to spend at leisure! Use your complimentary hotel shuttle bus to visit your hotel’s private beach, or head out into Amalfi town to sightsee independently. Perhaps check out highlights like Chiostro del Paradiso – a Moorish-style cloister with tropical gardens – or Amalfi Cathedral (entrance own expense). Alternatively, your hotel can organize excursions around the Amalfi Coast (own expense). Maybe visit Positano or discover Ravello – an exquisite little village in the hills above Amalfi. Enjoy dinner at your hotel in the evening, and then spend the rest of your night in Amalfi at leisure.

Overnight: 4-star Grand Hotel Bussola in Amalfi

My husband and I thought that this was a great tour! The tour guides were great. We thought the price was great.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2013

The hotels were very nice. The guided tours are a must because you would miss so much history the guides made it so enjoyable.. Only my friend and I went on to Amalfi by private driver and we were on our own. What fabulous place wish I had stayed a few days longer. It was a fun trip
