Take time out on this three-day excursion from Rome and see the highlights of some of Italy's most popular cities: Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri. You'll combine a love of food, history and coastal delights on this fascinating multi-day trip, and your friendly and knowledgeable guide will ensure you get a local feel for this engaging region.
Departing Rome, you will travel to Naples, UNESCO Heritage Listed and 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.
Next, you'll visit another fascinating UNESCO Heritage Listed site at Pompeii. You will have the opportunity to delve into the now restored Pompeii to discover traces of ancient Roman daily life. Due to a lack of air or water, amazing frescoes and objects buried from Mt. Vesuvius' volcanic eruption have remained intact for almost two thousand years.
Overlooking the bay of Naples, Sorrento's sea cliffs are lined by luxury hotels and a tangle of lemon trees. Perhaps that's the secret to their locally produced lemoncello, an alcoholic aperitif and the locals' drink of choice.
And how can one go past the Isle of Capri? A resort since the rule of the Roman Empire, Capri lures yearly crowds to its Blue Grotto, so named for the azure limestone glow beneath its waters.
