Amalfi Coast and South Italy

 
The South of Italy is the perfect place for those who fancy a vacation that combines culture, relax and great food. In fact, this area is rich in art masterpieces, breathtaking landscapes and tasteful "jems" like pizza or limoncello!
The first stop during your tour in the South of Italy, after the arrival in Rome, is usually Naples, the capital of the Campania region, that is the largest and the most visited among the cities of Southern Italy: a beautiful city with thousand of artistic and historic attractions and wonderful panorama on the Gulf overlooked by Mount VesuviusNaples is also famous for its gastronomic traditions: the pizza and the mozzarella, the pastiera, the babà and the sfogliatella (shell-shaped pastries filled with cream). Naples could also be the starting point of your journey to the well known Amalfi Coast, one of the most beloved Italian locations in the world!
With our Amalfi Coast vacation packages you can discover the best cities of Amalfi Coast, like Vietri sul Mare, Amalfi and Positano, permeated by the scent of lemons and oranges growing in a smalls lemon groves on the terrace gardens; during the excursions it will be a pleasure for you to get lost in the alleys that surround the Romanesque Amalfi cathedral or the church of Santa Maria Assunta in Positano, and admire the colors of the local flora and flowers and the picturesque houses on the hills dominating the crystalline sea. This is the charming beauty of the Amalfi Coast. If you want to discover other beautiful sea locations located within the bay of Naples, a visit to the famous island of Capri or Ischia is also mandatory!
Furthermore, ancient history lovers cannot miss the majestic archeological site of Pompeii and Herculaneum ruins, the ancient Roman cities destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius over two thousand years ago, which we suggest to visit with an expert guide who will explain you all the secrets lying beyond this magic places.
If you want to explore also areas off the beaten touristic paths, we highly suggest packages going across Apulia, a region that boasts many jems like Alberobello and its trulli or Lecce, the capitol of Salento area, and its stunning sea.

Beautiful landscape and smooth process!

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Amalfi Coast (Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento, Capri). Although a short stay, one night, the hotel was beautiful. The boat tour of Blue Grotto was awesome! The only thing we could have been informed more about, was that the meal at the hotel was a "dress-up"; event as it was a five-course meal. Other than that... excellent trip altogether! Glad we spent the money to do it!

Pompeii, Blue Grotto, Sorrento to Amalfi drive and Hotel Excelsior location on the mountain-side above Amalfi were very exciting

We had a beautiful 4 night tour from Rome to Sorrento to Amalfi. The activities on the first day in Naples and Pompei were interesting, the second day in Capri was unbelievable with our visit to the Blue Grotto and Anacapri, where we even went on a 20 minute ride on a cable car to the top of a mountain for a magnificent view . The third day we went to Amalfi and after a 2 hr bus ride we were taken to our hotel up the mountain , where our guided tour ended and we were on our own to visit the nearby towns. The 5th day was a little tedious as we had to check out from room at 11.00, pick up from hotel at 3.00 p.m, taken to Pompeii to get our transportation back to Rome. It was a long day but we had the time to recap our pleasant 5 day tour. Very good value.

Sorrento

Trip was very interesting overall, but nape guide and Capri guide were not as we were told to expect. Naples was very rushed. In Capri Marco was more interested in drumming up business for the forthcoming season. We felt we were a bit of an inconvenience and left to our own devices. Loved the visit to the blue grotto. Enjoyed Capri.

Excellent tour of Southern Italy!

All the arrangements were excellent. The travel element including the comfortable car when traveling solo and providing a very knowledgeable guide and driver...Bruno ....for just me,made it all the more interesting and informative. The hotels were good too... the only disappoint met was the weather, it rained incessantly for most of the week, alas! I will certainly recommend your company
