Itinerary

Walk beneath the Colosseum's arches and marvel at the mighty Pantheon to gain an understanding of the might of Roman civilisation at the height of its power. Saunter through colourful piazzas, share narrow laneways with beeping Vespa’s and be awestruck by the history that is revealed around every corner. Or, to escape the heat of the afternoon sun, get lost amid the cool, marbled hallways of the Galleria Borghese and Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Moderna.
Traipse through this raucous city that overflows with passion, tradition and gastronomy, being sure to inspect the evocative, World Heritage-listed old centre. Discover original Pompeii artefacts in the National Archaeological Museum and succumb to the temptation of the city’s original Neapolitan pizza. Then, travel to Pompeii - a time capsule quite unlike any other ruined city in the world – and hear tales of the city’s fate on a guided tour.
Ascend to the summit of Mt Vesuvius for staggering views over the Bay of Naples. See firsthand the awesome power of the volcano that engulfed the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum in 79AD. Afterwards, make tracks to the picturesque resort town of Sorrento, set invitingly atop dramatic cliffs over sparkling, blue waters. In free time, go celeb-spotting on a day trip to Capri, taking the opportunity to visit the beautiful Blue Grotto.
Negotiate the rocky coastline, whitewashed villages and lemon groves of the Amalfi Coast while hiking along its well-worn trails. Then, clock up some quality hours of rest and relaxation on the beach or perhaps toast the conclusion of this short but sweet trip with a delicious limoncello liqueur.
