Detailed Description

Italy contains too many treasures to visit in one trip, allowing you to return to the splendors of Puglia and the Amalfi Coast during an 8-day itinerary immersing you in its deep wells of history, culture, scenery, and luxury. Your personalized experience begins with your arrival at Bari Karol Wojtyla Airport in the Puglia region. Your private transfer greets you at baggage claim and escorts you to a stunning resort overlooking the cliffs along the Tyrrhenian Sea. Relax in the comfort of your private suite in view of the water or walk along the nearby narrow lanes of the fishing town of Savelletri di Fasano.

The following morning, you venture to the town of Alberobello to view the whitewashed walls and conical homes of the trulli. The unique architecture creates a fairytale ambiance along the streets. In the countryside, your guide leads you along a selection of vineyards to sample the various wines popular in Puglia, grown on vines thriving beneath the Mediterranean sun. The next day, you travel to the seaside town of Polignano a Mare, which is known for its historical architecture, delicious seafood, and stunning cliffs plunging into the water. In the afternoon, you take to a family-owned olive orchard to learn about the process of crafting the delectable oil before sampling the varieties.

Then, your private transfer greets you in the lobby of the resort, ready to escort you across the center of Italy to reach the Amalfi Coast at Ravello. You stop en route at the city of Matera to tour the layers of history embodied in the medieval architecture and preserved troglodyte settlements. Next, you venture to the isle of Capri. The day is yours to explore the island at your preferred pace. Wander along Capri or Anacapri.

Visit the villas of Roman emperors or take to the sea to view the Blue Grotto before returning to Ravello. Your private driver greets you for your tour along the Amalfi Coast. Travel the scenic roadway at your leisure, stopping to discover the hidden charms of coastal towns or basking in the golden sunlight on a hidden beach. Meet your private transfer in the hotel lobby on the final day to reach Naples International Airport for your flight home.
