Itinerary

Day 1: UK to Naples

When you arrive at Naples Airport, transfer to your hotel the Amalfi Coast. We hope you've got an appetite because we’ve planned a stop at a traditional agriturismo farm on your way – have a delicious home cooked meal here, paired with local wine. The best thing about agritourismo is that all the food’s mostly made using the fresh produce from the farm – eggs, meat, vegetables, olive oil and even the wine.

Meals included: Lunch

Day 2: Italian cooking class

After breakfast you'll be collected from your hotel and taken to Praiano to begin a day of walking, cooking and eating. Meet your local guide for the day - they’ll lead you along some of the beautiful coastal trails, teach you about the local food and culture, take you to a nearby vineyard and point out the flowers and herbs as you go. Pick some herbs for later – they’ll come in handy because we’ve planned an Italian cooking class for you. Use your fresh herbs and vegetables from the gardens to cook up a storm. Later, enjoy the fruits of your labours, as you tuck into your home cooked lunch accompanied by local wines.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 3: Food tasting tour

Meet your local guide for a day of food tasting. While you explore town, they’ll teach you about the history, myths and legends of the Amalfi Coast. Try some of the region’s tastiest treats as you go, like Amalfi lemon ice cream, Cuoppo (fried fish), pizza topped with sun ripened tomatoes and creamy mozzarella cheese and end with a sweet custard filled pastry ‘Pasticciotto cake’.

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

Day 4: Pompeii

On your final full day join a group tour of Pompeii, the ancient Roman city preserved by the volcanic eruption of AD 79. As you wander through the archaeological site, you’ll get an insight into this ancient civilisation, including their cooking practices. The kitchens, complete with ancient pots and pans – can still be seen today.

Meals included: Breakfast

Enjoy your last breakfast at the hotel before taking a private transfer to Naples Airport for your flight home. Or, why not extend your stay in Italy? Spend a few extra days on the Amalfi Coast or in the bustling town of Sorrento.
