Catch a hydrofoil across the glorious Bay of Naples to the Isle of Capri.
You’re not just travelling to Italy, you're travelling back in time 2,000 years as you explore the perfectly preserved Roman towns of Herculaneum and Pompeii
Learn why the way to any Italian’s heart is through their stomach – get delicious lessons on gelato, pizza and pasta from skilled Italian chefs
As there are potholes and cobblestones in many European cities, it's recommended that you leave any wheelie bags/cases at home and bring a backpack instead. As this is an eight-day trip, a large backpack should be enough to carry all of your belongings.
Summer temperatures can be very high in many of the regions visited (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. Use sun protection, wear layers, and carry plenty of water because hydration is key, especially when you’re walking a lot. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.
Make sure you pack some sturdy and comfortable shoes as there can be a lot of walking around the towns, ruins, and walking trails of this area.

Our family of five (kids aged 11 to 15) loved this trip. So many highlights, like discovering Herculaneum, making pizza like the experts, swimming in the Bay of Naples, exploring Amalfi lemon country. It was hot and jam-packed with activities but our host Lorenzo made it enjoyable with his enthusiasm and local knowledge.
