  • Naples, Capri, Sorrento, Amalfi7 days
About

Experience a slice of Italy that is rich in contrasts, from cities to beaches and from rugged to glamorous. Start in Naples with its untamed energy, world-class art, and chaotic city centre, on to the ruined city of Pompeii that was frozen in time two millennia ago, along the jaw-dropping winding coastal route to Sorrento and the breathtaking Amalfi Coast, with a stop off onthe island of Capri. Be prepared for some spectacular views.

You should experience it because...

Pompeii offers the best look anywhere at what life in Rome must have been like 2,000 years ago. An entire city of well-preserved ruins is yours to explore. It was once a thriving commercial port and was then buried under 30 feet of hot mud and volcanic ash in AD79. Archaeologists have brought the city back to life.

History & culture, cities & coasts

Celebrate being in Naples with a pizza at one of the many pizzerias – in 16thcentury Naples, a Galette flatbread was referred to as a pizza, it has been famous ever since.

Climb the nerve-tingling 7km drive up the Valle del Dragone to Ravello – a refined town known for its ravishing gardens and stupendous views.

Be rowed to the famous Blue Grotto on the coast of Capri – once you see the colour of the water in the cave you will know why it is called ‘Blue’.

  • Days Details
  • 1 Naples – attractions and sightseeing Start your day in Naples at the beautiful hilltop Museo Capodimonte home to southern Italy’s best collection of Renaissance paintings, including masterpieces by Raphael, Titian, Caravaggio and El Greco. After a lunch at a classic Naples pizzeria, get down to Naples’ brasher side on a vespa-dodging, laundry-flapping, street-stall dodging walking tour through the heart of this bold and chaotic city centre. Stepping onto Piazza Garibaldi you will be bombarded with street stalls and wild traffic, and to the south, the Mercato quarter is a high-octane spectacle of rough-and-ready markets and multiculturalism. Visit the Mercato di Porta Nolana market, one of the city’s best. Or stroll through La Pignasecca market, the city’s oldest street market and a multisensory escapade. See Naples as the sun goes down on a 3-hour evening tourwith dinner at a top pizzeria. Pass sites such as Castel Nuovo, Piazza del Plebiscito, San Carlo Opera House, and more.
  • 2 Naples – on to Pompeii Time to explore more of Naples in the morning. See the greatest treasures of Pompeii, brought to the Naples National Archaeological Museum for safe-keeping. Be dazzled by the Farnese collection including the largest single sculpture ever recovered from antiquity – the Farnese Bull. This larger-than-life sculpture was adored and painstakingly restored by Michelangelo. Head to the serene Cappella Sansevero, home to some amazingly lifelike sculptures that have to be seen to be believed. On to Pompeii – said to be Europe’s most compelling archaeological sites. A ruined city that was buried under volcanic ash thousands of years ago in AD79, and has been beautifully restored from the 18thcentury, with works still going on today.
  • 3 Sorrento and Capri Carrying along the coast, drive to serene Sorrento. Wander through the shop-lined back streets of the elegant town, stopping to savour an Italian gelato on the way. It is still a civilized old town with plenty of fine old shops selling ceramics and laceworks. Head off to the fabled island of Capri that is now home to cocktail piazzas, cool cafes, Roman ruins and rugged seascapes. Much of the island retains an unspoilt charm, with grand villas, overgrown vegetable plots, sun-bleached peeling stucco and banks of colourful bougainvillea. Overnight on Capri.
  • 4 A day on Capri – attractions and sightseeing Take to the deep blue waters surrounding the island today that lap unseen into secluded coves and mysterious grottoes. Be rowed to the Blue Grotto – Grotta Azzura – a stunning sea cave that is illuminated by another worldly blue light. East of the town centre and a short work along the Via Tiberio is Villa Jovis. Standing 354m above sea level, this was the largest and most sumptuous of the island’s 12 Roman villas. Take the boat back to Sorrento for a relaxing evening at the L’Antica Trattoria restaurant with an upstairs terrace that is filled with flowers, traditional tiles, and trailing grape vines.
  • 5 The Amalfi Coast The Amalfi coast is one of Europe’s most breathtaking. Cliffs terraced with scented lemon groves sheer down into sparkling seas, and whitewashed villas cling precariously to steep slopes, while sea and sky merge in one vast blue horizon. Positano is the coast’s most photogenic town with steeply-stacked houses tumbling down to the sea in a cascade of bright colours. Climb the steep streets and steps that are lined with wisteria, and have lunch at one of the many smart restaurants along the way. Visit Ravello – an enchanting village perched on a ridge high above Amalfi and the neighbouring town of Atrani. Stop overnight at one of the family-run small hotels that boast coved ceilings, whitewashed walls, and native folk art.
  • 6 Amalfi Town Amalfi is the Amalfi Coast’s largest city, and yet still feels intimate. There is a pretty marina, normally full of colourful boats and fluttering flags, and take a walk to the historic centre at Piazza del Duomo in front of the striking cathedral. Stop off at the sidewalk cafes and elegant shops, and climb the 60 steps that lead to the Byzantine church that bears Moorish-influenced arches and decoration. Dedicated to St. Andrew, this church – the Duomo di Saint’Andrea – is a beautiful structure. The town has a long history as a centre of paper mills. Stop off at the Museo della Carta (Paper Museum) to see how the pretty products were (and still are!) made by hand. Wander off to the outskirts of the town and you will find yourself in the rows and rows of delicious lemon trees, picked fresh to make the popular Italian limoncello liqueur. The lemon motif shows up in regional ceramics and the citrus scent fills the air.
  • 7 The Amalfi Coast Another day to explore this beautiful coastal route. Not so well known as Pompeii is the site of Herculaneum. The ruins here are very well preserved. See Roman baths and fabulous mosaics, and marvel at the House of Nepture and the Villa of the Papyri that once luxuriously descended to the sea over four terraces. The library of the villa contained many scrolls. If you are feeling fit, make time to climb Vesuvius. Or you can take a bus from the Herculaneum station to the stopping point where you walk the rest of the way to the rim of the volcano. Peer down in to the still active volcano, and imagine what it must have been like all those many years ago when eruption took place.

Summer is the high travel season in the Mediterranean. The weather is hot and sunny, the water is warm, and millions of people flock to the coast to soak up the sun and take a break from routine.. During the spring months, the flowers are blooming and the landscape is verdant, while autumn days are mild and clear before the winter rains.

Those wanting to travel earlier in the season can visit some of the more southern destinations as well as the larger Mediterranean islands. Cyprus and Malta are lovely in April, with warm days and pleasant nights. Late March through April is also an ideal time to visit Morocco, Greece, Italy, Slovenia, and Turkey.
