Marciano’s family will welcome you to their estate where lemons, oranges, mandarins, olives grapes grow. The family members will show you how the famous mozzarella cheese is produced by hand.

Wake up to an early breakfast at the hotel, and hop on the bus to the port of Massa, to board the private boat that will take us for a Capri sightseeing tour. Upon arrival to the town of Capri, we will spend some time exploring this enchanting part of the island, walking and breathing the special atmosphere along the tiny pedestrian alleys. The famous Piazzetta, the beautiful Augustus Gardens, the narrow winding streets with delightful small shops and the fantastic view of the Faraglioni, the imposing rock formations rising from the blue Mediterranean water, definitely one of Capri’s best-known landmarks.
Charge your batteries with breakfast at the hotel before departing to Ercolano. We visit this archeological site with our guide. Located in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, Ercolano was an ancient Roman town destroyed by volcanic pyroclastic flows in 79 AD. Around midday, we have some free time for lunch. Shortly after, we will proceed to Pompeii, where we will join the guide to discover the most significant archaeological site of Naples Bay, buried under lava and ash form Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD and lay forgotten for hundreds of years. Enjoy a walking tour of Pompeii that includes the visit of interiors of the homes, ancient streets, the Amphitheatre, the ancient Forum. Return in the afternoon, for a well-deserved rest and tasty dinner at the hotel.
After breakfast at the hotel, prepare to experience a full day of free time for you to spend discovering the popular and attractive town of Sorrento at your own pace. In the evening, dinner will be served at the hotel.
Our breakfast at the hotel is followed by a day travelling along one of the most intriguing coastlines in the World. We will stop on the route for a panoramic view of Positano from above. Around midday, we have some free time for lunch and then continue to the top of the mountains to Ravello, situated at 1100 feet above the sea level, the views of the coast below are for sure the most breath-taking scenery. The town of Ravello is the best place where to leave the crowds and where to enjoy the quiet of a village, where most of the historical centre is still untamed, and still recalling the magnificence of the grand private residences.
