DAY 3 ROME & POMPEII

In the morning you’ll board a high-speed train from Rome to Naples. Your driver will meet you and continue  to Pompeii. Pompeii was a ?holiday resort? for wealthy Roman politicians and nobility . It is now famous for  its civic buildings lining the streets some still intact today, exceptional examples of the epoch’s architecture.  Another remarkable construction is the ?House of Mysteries?, which derives its name from the murals  depicting the initiation rites (i.e., the mysteries) of the Dionysian cult. A peculiar characteristic of Pompeii is  the ?florid graffiti covering the walls? in just about every building; this is because when the volcanic eruption  happened, Pompeii was set to carry out elections in the days ahead – hence the writings and ideograms,  which depict political and sexual content. After the tour, motor to Amalfi Coast  You’ll arrive in Amalfi in the late afternoon, just in time for an aperitivo before you head out for a lovely  dinner. ?Overnight in Amalfi?. (B)

DAY 4 FREE TIME

We’re firm believers in allowing for free time to explore places on your own in order to get a true sense of  where you are. Take time to enjoy a coffee at a cafe or walk along main streets of the town. The best way to  see the town is to walk, where undoubtedly you’ll unearth wonderful finds, whether it’s the intoxicating  aroma of a bakery or handmade leather goods, beautiful music boxes or fine lace. Discover a quaint park  with children chasing each other or have a glass of wine while sitting by sea. Another great thing to do is to  head over to Capri for the day. Visit the Blue Grotto, sit in a cafe on the Piazzetta, Capri’ s famous square and  make sure to have a lunch looking out on the Faraglioni. Book a table at Il Geranio, Villa Verde or Da Luigi  and you won’t be disappointed.    Overnight in Sorrento (B)
