Detailed Description

Southern Italy has long been the destination of choice for travelers from all corners of the globe. Even during the ages of antiquity, Roman emperors found the views and coastal grandeur of this region to be the perfect antidote to the civic stress of running an empire. This 14-day journey through some of the highlights of this region was designed to offer you the same treatment, but with fewer volcanic eruptions. This adventure also offers a handcrafted escape for couples who are seeking a blend of comfort and adventure.

The first leg of your journey includes an exciting stay in the bustling port community of Naples. From this starting point, you will have plenty of opportunities to explore the dynamic and lively neighborhoods of the city before striking out to enjoy a trip to the nearby community of Pompeii. It is this region that witnessed the stunning eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, which covered Pompeii in ash and left an indelible mark on the geologic and social history of Campania. The second leg of your tour will lead you to the Sorrentine Peninsula, and the Amalfi Coast makes up the Southern end of the Bay of Naples. These rugged mountains afford visitors a plethora of stunning views of mountains that drop precipitously into the azure waters. Much in the same way they have for centuries, Sorrento, Capri, Amalfi, and Positano will all offer you unique glimpses into these distinct societies that persist through today. Finally, Sicily in the South will beckon you with promises of exotic flavors and intimate settings for you and your partner to enjoy.

As summers can be quite warm, timing will be everything on this tour. The busier months tend to be June, July, and August for international as well as domestic travelers, so Spring and early Fall are usually the best times to go for those who desire a quieter setting. This enchanting region is also home to Homer’s infamous Sirens, which were sea creatures that lured sailors into dangerous waters with their beautiful song, but rest assured that uncovering ancient myths and enjoying yourself are your only requirements of this satisfying tour of Southern Italy.
