We'll pick you up bright and early from your central Rome hotel and bring you to our comfortable coach bus. Admire the picturesque landscapes and countryside scenery as you drive 2.5 hours from Rome to Naples with your professional tour escort. Upon arrival in Naples, an experienced local guide will lead you on a walking tour of the city's historical heart. See the Royal Palace, the Gallery of Umberto I, the Piazza del Plebiscito, the San Carlo Opera House, and truly beautiful churches. Listen as your guide shares the secrets of the timeworn heart of Naples. According to the season, you'll enjoy a typical lunch here or in Pompeii.
On your way to Pompeii, make a quick stop at a coral and cameo factory. This interesting aside is a great place to buy some souvenirs! Then, we'll continue on to the ruins of Pompeii, an ancient village tragically buried in 79 B.C.E. by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Witness the extensive archaeological excavations of the town and marvel at the ancient treasures unearthed from the ash. In the evening, progress to Sorrento, where you'll eat a delectable dinner and stay the night.
Eat breakfast before catching the 8:00 A.M. ferry to the famed Isle of Capri. Admire the grand coastal landscape and tranquil Tyrrhenian Sea during your ride. Arrive at the Marina Grande in Capri. Once on the island, embark on a (weather-permitting) adventure to the enchanting Blue Grotto, an exotic sea cave. Here, relax in the midst of a unique natural wonder and take a quick swim in bright blue water. After, wander through the rich Gardens of Augustus, a luscious terraced enclave with amazing overhead views of the sea and Faraglioni rock formations.
Later, take a minibus to Anacapri, a high vantage point with equally stunning vistas. After lunch in the quaint town of Anacapri, return to the Marina Grande and take the ferry back to Sorrento for dinner.
Enjoy an American-style breakfest buffet before setting out to explore the popular town of Sorrento. Today is a free day, so do whatever your heart desires! Stroll through Sorrentine streets and shops or visit some other attractive villages on the peninsula.
One favorite is nearby Positano, a lively fishing village and tourist enclave tucked in between the mountains and the sea. Or perhaps venture to the town of Amalfi, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and capital of an ancient maritime republic. Grab lunch on your own and meet back in Sorrento in the late afternoon to board the coach with your guide. Start the drive back to Rome, where you will arrive around 9:00 P.M.
