Our relaxing and varied tour will take you around some of Italy’s most beautiful sights, combining the glamour of Rome with the ancient history of Pompeii, as well as taking in the scenic delights of the Amalfi Coast and stylish Sorrento.

Rome

We’ll fly to the beautiful Italian capital city of Rome, where we’ll stay for two nights.The Eternal City of Rome is one of the most important tourist destinations of the world, due to the vast number of archaeological and artistic treasures, as well as for the charm of its unique traditions.

 

Here we’ll enjoy an insightful guided city tour highlighting some of the top sights, including the awesome Colosseum and St Peter’s Basilia in Vatican City. Enjoy time at leisure to explore further, as Rome has so many wonderful places to see, including the superb Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps.

Sorrento

Moving on to the coast, we will stay in the stylish resort of Sorrento for four nights, an enchanting town, located in a steep position on the Gulf of Naples, offering breathtaking panoramic views. During our stay we’ll have time to relax and enjoy our resort, which also has many historical attractions and religious architecture including the cathedral, the Church of Sant’Antonio and the Cloister of San Francesco.

 

Sit back as we take you on a stunning drive along the wonderful Amalfi Coast and be amazed as we visit the unique archaeological site of Pompeii. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the ancient city of Pompeii was buried under ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD79, and was lost for nearly 1,700 years before its rediscovery in 1748.

 

After a wonderful break, we head back to Rome for our final overnight stay, before our return flight home.
