To make the most of your visit why not join our optional guided walking tour? Today, we see a remarkable excavation site and outdoor museum of the ancient Roman settlement, and we’ll be sure to visit this historic site during our holiday.

We’ll be able to enjoy free time to explore to our heart’s content, so we can see some of the city’s best-known attractions. Take the time to discover St. Peter’s Square, the Colosseum, the Sistine Chapel or Trevi Fountain, the choice is yours.

Sorrento, with its exquisite views out over the Bay of Naples and traditional architecture that’s synonymous with this part of Italy, makes for an excellent included excursion during our holiday.

If you wish to be introduced to all Sorrento has to offer then join our optional Taste of Sorrento excursion, where you can combine your visit to Sorrento with a guided walking tour of the town and a visit to a Limoncello factory.

Limoncello is the signature lemon liqueur of the area, and our visit will include a short tour of the factory and orchard along with a sampling of this famous drink.

In AD 79, the mighty Mount Vesuvius erupted and bathed the Roman city of Herculaneum in volcanic ash.

Today, on our optional excursion, we explore this fascinating site, which was left undiscovered until the late-18th century.

Similar to nearby Pompeii, Herculaneum provides an unprecedented opportunity to see how its people lived two thousand years ago.

We journey through the scenic countryside on our optional excursion, firstly to Castel Gandolfo on the shores of Lake Albano and home to the Pope’s summer residence. Most of the town is part of the independent papal state of the Vatican City, and when in residence the Pope addresses the crowd from the balcony of the palace. (Please note: entrance into the Pope’s summer residence is prohibited).

Later, we continue to Frascati for an included short visit to a pergolato, where we can sample some of the local produce including snacks of porchetta, cheese, olives and wine.

Frascati is a small, relaxed town with a slower pace of life, cleaner air and a far more casual feel than the nearby capital. There will be some free time to explore the town at your leisure before we head back to our hotel.

Journey was far too long. Hotel was absolutely fine. Food nice, staff lovely,rooms clean etc. Drivers not very informative. My family and I have been travelling abroad by coach gor 40 years but I think it will be a long time before we ever do it again. The Journey was horrendous I think this holiday would benefit from a night stop off at a hotel outbound and inbound. Maybe extend the stop at the resort also.

The trips out everyday were amazing and everything we had wanted. The organisation at the Stop 24 was wonderful. Coaches and passengers coming from every direction at the interchange. It went so smoothly. Sadly, the food at the hotel was extremely disappointing. 10 guests walked out one night and never returned to the dinning room for evening meals again and by the end of the holiday half the passengers had done the same. No commentary on the coach from drivers - is that normal? We had drivers that did not work for Shearings and couldn’t help with the complaints that fellow passengers had with their rooms etc. The coach would just stop at a service station- no announcements were given as to the time of return etc - had to ask every time. The inbound transfer shearing coach was very cramped with no headrests. I couldn’t even stretch my legs out. This has made me realise that we were lucky with our seats. Not sure I would want to risk another holiday and get a seat like that. We will not be going with Shearings again.
