Resort Information

The Bay of Naples is a holidaymaker's dream. Along and above its delightful coastline, welcoming villages and resorts look out over the clear, blue waters of the Mediterranean.


Sorrento's wonderful cliff-top setting, stylish Corso Italia, maze of alleyways, and lively Piazza Tasso, make it the perfect Italian seaside resort. Spend your evenings relaxing in one of the many cafes and bars, and watch the locals enjoying a gentle passeggiata after the heat of the day.

Sant Agata

The village of Sant Agata del Due Golfi boasts stunning views across both the Bay of Salerno and the Bay of Naples, and offers visitors a small selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Six miles from Sorrento, it's a calmer, cooler alternative to the lively energy of the larger resort.


Day One

Fly from your selected airport to Italy and transfer to your hotel.

Day Two

Relax at your hotel, today, or explore the surrounding area. Our Tour Manager is sure to have plenty of suggestions if you're wondering where to start.

Day Three

Today's optional excursion takes us to two of Italy's most important historic sites. Almost 1500 years after its founding, the monastery at Monte Cassino continues its role as a centre of religious life, and stands as a monument to the 4000 lives lost there in one of World War Two's final epic battles.

By contrast, the huge, 18th-century Royal Palace at Caserta celebrates secular life, echoing the extravagant style of Versailles in its great square and splendid gardens.

Day Four

Experience unforgettable views of vast cliffs, deep gorges and dizzying bridges from the Amalfi Drive - one of Europe's most scenic coast roads. See lovely Amalfi, the colourful, Moorish houses of Positano, and the alleys, stairways and roofed passages of mountainside Ravello, on today's optional excursion.

Day Five

Capri, the Isle of Dreams, is the destination for our next optional excursion. Take in the magical views from Anacapri's Villa San Michele, visit the summit of Solare by chair-lift (payable locally) and stroll the streets of the island's main town as you browse its designer stores and boutiques.

Day Six

Relax in the hotel, or explore your surroundings a little more, as you spend today at leisure.

Day Seven

On our final optional excursion you'll have the chance to climb 1000 metres up the slopes of Vesuvius, and even join a guide (payable locally) to cover the final 500m to the volcano rim.

Later, discover about the dramatic history of Pompeii. Buried beneath volcanic ash in AD79, this ancient Roman city lay forgotten until the 18th Century. Learn the fascinating story of Pompeiian life, and see the villas, temples and frescoed houses uncovered by the subsequent excavations.

Day Eight

Transfer back to the airport, today, and check in for your flight back to the UK.
