Prices From:
US$ 769

Enjoy moderate accommodations and combine the delights of the Amalfi Coast with the splendour of the former Roman Empire on this historic Discover Sorrento break. Visit relaxed and charming Capri as well as the superbly preserved Herculaneum.


This 4-day southern Italy tour bases you in Sorrento, one of the most charming spots on the Amalfi Coast for exploring its highlights, including the idyillic island of Capri and the ancient city of Herculaneum. 

Arriving in Capri is like stepping back in time. The relaxed atmosphere and friendly locals will give you the chance to catch your breath as you enjoy stunning views that have been  celebrated since the time of Homer. Stroll through the centre of Anacapri, gelato in hand, and explore local artisan shops. 

Return to the mainland to visit Herculaneum, the lesser known vicitim of Mt Vesuvius. It remained undiscovered for so long  because the material that buried the city was harder to penetrate, frustrating excavators, but also protecting it from looters. As a result, the site is now one of the best preserved Roman sites you’ll ever explore.

Day 2

Capri and Anacapri (ex. Sorrento)

Visit the magical Island and sample its beauty sights and scenery! Travel to the island of Capri and visit two towns of Capri and Anacapri. The tour begins with a visit to Anacapri, where you can have time to wander around the lovely town. This picture-perfect town seems untouched by modern times; residents enjoy a slow, simple pace of life and welcome tourists with open arms. It is a town that beckons visitors to slow down, relax and enjoy its subdued ambiance. The tour then continues to the centre of Capri, where the little square (otherwise knows as "the drawing room of the world" is located). You will have a chance to view the Faraglioni Rocks from Augustus' Garden followed by a walk along the artisan and designer shops. Capri's unique beauties were celebrated in ancient times and later published for the world in Homer's works: Odysseus (known in Latin as Ulysses) sailing past the island, narrowly escaped the fate of those who hear the voices of the Sirens.

Duration7 Hours
Day 3

Herculaneum

This morning you will rediscover Roman Civilisation at one of the best preserved sights in the area. Herculaneum, ancient city of 4000-5000 inhabitants in Campania, Italy. The city was destroyed - together with Pompeii, Torre Annunziata, and Stabiae - by the Vesuvius eruption of ad 79. The particular circumstances of the burial of Herculaneum, unlike those of Pompeii, led to the formation over the city of a compact mass of tufaceous material about 50 to 60 feet (15 to 18 metres) deep. Although this layer made excavation very difficult, it preserved Herculaneum and prevented tampering and looting. Thus, Herculaneum offers a detailed impression of private life that is only with difficulty achieved in other centres of the ancient world. The public monuments uncovered include the palaestra (sports ground), with a large portico surrounding a vast central piscina (swimming pool), and thermae (baths), one of which adjoins the former beachfront. This bath is in a remarkable state of preservation, having remained largely protected against the pyroclastic flows of the eruption. Excavation continues, since the demolition of part of Ercolano, at the forum of the ancient city and at the ancient coastline.
