From the picturesque towns along the Amalfi Coast and the glamour of Capri to the ancient streets of Pompeii, this escorted tour will showcase the Neapolitan Riviera’s most popular sights.
Day 1: Arrive into Naples airport where your transfer will take you to your hotel. Spend the afternoon getting settled in before meeting the rest of your group and guide for a welcome drink.
Day 2: Today you’ll take a walking tour of Sorrento and get to know this popular coastal town. Discover the old quarter with its maze of streets and local shops, Piazza Tasso where locals enjoy their morning coffee, and the stunning viewpoints throughout the town where you can admire the beautiful Bay of Naples.
Day 3: You’ll head to the imposing Mount Vesuvius this morning, whose ash buried unsuspecting nearby towns in the devastating eruption that took place in 79AD. You’ll be taken by coach to 1,000 metres high then ascend to the crater by foot where you’ll be greeted with panoramic views. In the afternoon, you’ll visit nearby Pompeii where the expert guide will bring this ancient city to life.
Day 4: No visit to the Neapolitan Riviera will be complete without a trip to the glamorous isle of Capri. This stunning island is a jewel on the Neapolitan Riviera with stylish boutiques and fantastic views. After a short hydrofoil trip from Sorrento, you’ll head up the winding cliff side road to lofty Anacapri, admiring panoramic sea views from every hairpin bend. Your tour includes visits to Villa San Michele, where arguably some of the best views on the island can be found, and the Gardens of Augustus where you’ll have time for a pleasant stroll. In the afternoon you’ll be able to spend some time in Capri Town where you’ll find chic cafés and designer boutiques.
Day 5: Today is at leisure to spend as you wish. Relax by the pool at your hotel, or jump on the free shuttle to explore Sorrento a bit more.
Day 6: After breakfast, head off to explore the stunning towns of the Amalfi Coast with a trip along the world-famous Amalfi Drive. As the coach leaves Sorrento, you’re greeted with uninterrupted sea views along this winding cliff side road. You’ll stop for panoramic stop near Positano, whose white cubic houses and strong Moorish influences has made it one the most beautiful and recognisable towns on the Amalfi Coast. You’ll then reach Amalfi where you’ll have time to visit the cathedral before heading to Ravello for a visit to the famous Villa Rufolo.
Day 7: Another free day gives you a chance to relax before heading home.
Day 8: Make time for some last minute souvenir shopping or a quick bite to eat in Piazza Tasso before your transfer back to Naples airport.
