Resort Information

This holiday is based beside the beautiful Bay of Naples, where exquisite towns and villages cling to the hillsides, overlooking the water in picture-postcard perfection.

Sorrento

Perched upon its cliff-top, Sorrento seems built between the sky and the sea. Its beating heart is the Piazza Tasso. In the evenings its bars and cafes become the perfect base from which to watch the locals enjoying the passeggiata down the stylish Corso Italia and through the maze of alleyways.

Sant'Agata

Just six miles from Sorrento, Sant'Agata del Due Golfi enjoys stunning views of both the Bay of Naples and the Bay of Salerno. The village, with its small selection of shops, bars and restaurants, is especially popular with those who prefer the cooler evenings to the the bustle of the main resort.

Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Italy and transfer to your hotel. The rest of the day is free for you to check-in, unpack, relax and familiarise yourself with your surroundings, before enjoying dinner in the hotel.

Day Two

Your first full day is free for you to enjoy at leisure, either at the hotel, or perhaps in Sorrento itself, with its maze of shop-filled alleyways, its two tiny ports, even tinier beach and its blue waters dotted with colourful pedalos and sailboats.

Day Three

Spend another day relaxing or exploring. Those joining our optional excursion will take in two of Italy's most important historic locations - starting with Monte Cassino, the great rebuilt Benedictine Monastery in its fatefully strategic setting. The second, Caserta, rivals Versailles in its stunning Baroque splendour.

Day Four

With its immense cliffs and dizzy bridges spanning deep gorges, the Amalfi Drive is among the most scenic coastal roads in Europe. Enjoy the unforgettable view above Positano, with its colourful Moorish-style houses, and visit beautiful Amalfi, before moving on to Ravello with its alleys, stairways and roofed passages clinging to the mountainside.

Day Five

From Sorrento we cross to Capri, the 'Isle of Dreams'. Enjoy spectacular views from Anacapri's Villa San Michele, take a chair-lift ride to the summit of Solare (payable locally) and visit the island's main town to wander the Augustus Gardens or browse the host of exclusive designer stores. An optional boat trip to the famous Blue Grotto will be bookable on the day.

Day Six

Another day to enjoy the hotel and discover the charms of Sorrento.

Day Seven

Today you'll visit Mount Vesuvius, climbing the road to a height of 1000 metres. Perhaps take a guide (payable locally) and climb a further 500 metres to the volcano's rim.

Afterwards, discover in the haunting ruins of Roman Pompeii, miraculously 'preserved' by the volcano's eruption in AD79. Forgotten for hundreds of years, it was rediscovered in the 18th Century. Excavations have gradually revealed its magnificent villas, temples and frescoed houses.

Day Eight

After a wonderful week, transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.
