Take time out to tour four of Italy's most popular cities - Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri - on a two-day excursion from Rome. You'll visit UNESCO World Heritage Sites and discover the rich history of Pompeii and beautiful Sorrento and Capri.
Departing from Rome, you will travel to Naples, famous for delivering the humble pizza to the rest of the world! It is a brazen yet vibrant city and the capital of the Campania region. Naples was first inhabited by the ancient Greeks, who gave it the name Neapolis or "new city".
Next, immerse yourself in the forgotten city of Pompeii. Buried under the ash from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 B.C., the now preserved site gives historical insights into life during the Roman Empire.
Overlooking the bay of Naples, Sorrento is both a seaside resort town and a rich source of agricultural production. Take your pick of cafe-lined plazas and feast on locally harvested citrus fruit, wine, nuts and olives.
Before returning to Rome, you won't want to miss the Isle of Capri. Ever the crowd pleaser, it lures crowds to its Blue Grotto, so named for the azure limestone glow beneath its waters.
