Day 03, Sunday: Rome

Today will be free at leisure. This tour has been designed to offer the best of each city visited combined with some free time to customize your travel experience as well as to take some time to relax. There are many available experiences, if you wish to continue exploring this area. Among these, we like to suggest to explore the Imperial Rome with Colosseum and Fori, to visit one of the most beautiful art collections in Europe at Palazzo Borghese, or visit Tivoli, where you will find the astonishing Villa Hadriana, built by the Emperor Hadrian and Villa d'Este, a masterpiece of Italian gardening.

Day 05, Tuesday: Amalfi Drive

The beauty of Amalfi Coast is legendary and has inspired artists, writers, and musicians over the century. Widely considered Italy's most scenic stretch of coastline, it is deemed by UNESCO "an outstanding example of a Mediterranean landscape, with exceptional cultural and natural scenic values." These delicate fishing villages embrace the hillsides or stretch in deep green valleys, along a dramatic coastline, challenging the force of gravity. Your driver guide will lead you to the town of Amalfi first, where you will have free time to explore the medieval part of the city, with the imposing Dome of St. Andrew and ancient buildings dated from the times when Amalfi was one of the maritime powers in the Mediterranean Sea. Later, you will ascend to Ravello, considered one of the most romantic and beautiful small towns in Southern Italy. Perched on arduous, terraced slopes, the French novelist André Gide was used to say Ravello was closer to the sky than the sea. Covered with lush gardens, quiet, and sleepy roads, you will find corners providing unforgettable views over the azure coast below. Return to Sorrento in the late afternoon and overnight. (B)

Day 06, Wednesday: Pompeii

Today we will visit the ancient Pompeii. Pompeii is not a time machine but the closest thing you can find to learn about everyday life in an ancient Roman city. Once a vibrant town, Pompeii’s fate was sealed with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 7.9 A.D. Today, Pompeii is a UNESCO World Heritage site, one of the most visited archaeological sites in all the world. Pompeii was a major port town for the Roman empire, which dominated the whole Mediterranean Sea. As a classic port, the town was filled with sailor’s hotels, bars, public baths, taverns, and brothels. The archeological site and continuous excavations give visitors the best look there is on ancient Roman days. Visit the Roman Forum, the theatre, whose acoustics are so good you don’t need microphones to be heard from the stage, and the public baths with towering columns. Built-in 70 A.D., the amphitheater is the oldest-known Roman amphitheater in existence. Now covered in grass, it originally held up to 20,000 spectators. Return to Sorrento and enjoy an afternoon to relax or continue your exploration of the city. Tonight, enjoy a candle-light dinner in Sorrento. Overnight in Sorrento. (B,D)
