Dreamstime M 32041424 Capri

Boasting some of the best views across the Bay of Naples over the blue Tyrrhenian Sea, join us for a stylish Christmas or Spring break on the Amalfi Coast in the famous resort of Sorrento. This historic seaside town with its breath taking surrounds of hills, lemon and olive groves and majestic cliffs is perfect for exploring the archaeological site of Pompeii and Herculaneum, the gorgeous island of Capri or perhaps a lazy stroll around the town itself. Whichever we decide, this is a perfect classic Italian

Imagine an extraordinarily beautiful cliff-top setting, above the Bay of Naples with stunning views along the Sorrento coastline, where cliffs plunge straight down into an azure blue sea and seaside towns nestle in their craggy folds.

Amazing Amalfi

Positano, with its cobbled main street and interesting array of shops, is an absolute joy to explore, as is the UNESCO World Heritage listed Amalfi, with its historic cathedral and narrow alleyways. We include a scenic guided tour along the Amalfi coastline, with a visit to the historical centre itself, to marvel at the scenery and learn more about this much-loved area. Optional excursions include a visit to the fascinating excavations of ancient Pompeii or Herculaneum, destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Additionally, a relaxing boat trip to the sophisticated Isle of Capri is also an option, during your leisure time, for a spot of shopping or perhaps even celebrity spotting!

Secluded Sorrento

A guided walking tour of Sorrento will unearth secrets of the past as well as modern delights; ‘old’ and ‘new’ Sorrento blossom into life as we explore together with our local guide. Glorious views stretch out on a clear day as far as Mount Vesuvius, the city of Naples and the quaint Isle of Ischia. The pretty Old Town hides many a fine restaurant and delightful street café, while its small harbour offers the possibility of ferry departures to Naples, for those wishing to explore a little further. While here, why not sample some delicious Limoncello, a tasty lemon liqueur made from the splendid big lemons the region is known for, or browse for colourful ceramics?

More to Explore
Listed below are just some of the tours, which may be available to you. Full details of all the excursions available will be advised at the Information Meeting. Prices may vary, depending on numbers etc and are only a guideline. Optional tours may be paid for in local currency in cash only. Your Tour Leader will be happy to arrange these for you but may not necessarily accompany you. Drivers and guides expect to be tipped after a tour. Please be prepared to contribute €3 at the end of each optional tour you do. Please also note that prices are dependent on minimum numbers and may cost more if the minimum is not reached.

Capri
A full day tour to the exclusive Isle of Capri, including Anacapri, Capri Centre, Augustus Gardens and Marina Grande. There will also be time for shopping and an optional visit to the Villa St. Michele. Cost: Approx. €80.00

Pompeii
A half day tour, visiting the fascinating excavations of this early Greek and Roman city, destroyed by an eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Cost: Approx. €38.00, plus €13.00 for entrance.

Herculaneum & Vesuvius
A full day tour, visiting the less famous, but no less fascinating Herculaneum followed by a walk up Mt. Vesuvius (weather permitting). Cost: Approx. €50 plus €13 for entrance.

Gratuities
There is often confusion on the question of gratuities, since it frequently depends on the type of holiday, location and, of course, your attitude towards tipping, as to what is normally expected. In order to give you a rough idea, we have given appropriate guidance below.

Your Tour Leader will be on hand to offer advice or suggestions if required but gratuities are offered entirely at the sole discretion of the individual. We suggest a group collection to cover drivers, porters and hotel staff of €20.00. Your Tour Leader will collect this on your behalf and distribute it accordingly, thus relieving you of the burden of who, when and how much to tip. The tipping of housekeeping will be left to your individual discretion (a small amount left in your room on departure should cover this and would be much appreciated). As is customary, ‘the hat’ will be passed around for the driver and guide on all optional excursions. For any meals that are not included in your itinerary, or taxi fares, your Tour Leader can advise of an appropriate Ͽo add on.

Temperature (Average Daily Maximum ºC)
