About this holiday
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.
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?
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!
