Duration
9 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,789

Discover the best of Italy on this semi-escorted tour through the country’s south. Take advantage of the Hop-On Hop-Off bus in Rome to explore the Eternal City before touring the Colosseum. Then head south along the Amalfi Coast to tour Naples, Pompeii, Capri, and Anacapri. End your vacation with leisure time in Maiorii to discover the beauty of this coastal region.


Your trip to Italy begins in Rome, the nation’s capital and the heart of the ancient Roman Empire. You’ll quickly be dazzled by the wonders of the Eternal City. On your first day, take advantage of the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour to explore landmarks like the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, and the Pantheon in between meals of incredible Italian cooking. The next day, journey back in time to Ancient Rome with a visit to the Colosseum. Gain access to restricted areas and experience the vantage point of fighters on the stadium floor and in the underground dungeons. Afterwards, explore the centres of Ancient Rome on Palatine Hill and the Roman Forum.

From Rome, head south and reach Naples, the treasure of the Amalfi Coast and the birthplace of Neapolitan culture. Take a walking tour of the old town to see landmarks like the Piazza del Plebiscito and the Royal Palace before trying out some unforgettable Neapolitan dishes. Hint: try the pizza, as there’s no better place to have this famous dish than in the city that invented it. Continue from Naples to nearby Pompeii to explore an ancient city that was engulfed by volcanic ash during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. That evening, continue to Sorrento, the western gateway to the Amalfi Coast and one of the most popular resort towns in Southern Italy. Tourists have flocked to the town since the 19th century and famous visitors like Lord Byron only added to the town’s romantic appeal. While based in Sorrento, you’ll take a day to explore the island of Capri and its most popular towns, Capri and Anacapri. Board the ferry and journey to the peaceful island, where you’ll stroll through lush gardens and see the famous Blue Grotto, gazing into the impossibly-blue depths of the water. Return to Sorrento and continue to Maiori.

Maiori has attracted vacationers since Roman times. It has the longest stretch of unbroken beach along the Amalfi coastline, and, thus, is unquestionably the region’s beach-going centrepiece. Stroll through the gorgeous old town perched along the cliff and visit the nearby towns of Amalfi and Ravello. Most essentially, spend some time on the beach itself, sun-tanning, swimming, and soaking in the incredible Amalfi atmosphere. After a couple days in Maiori, return to Rome, passing once again through Pompeii along the way. In Rome, you’ll connect to the airport or train station to continue your onward journey.
