Detailed Description

Southern Italy has long enchanted and enticed travelers who are in need of relaxation and restful luxury. Contemporary celebrities and past Roman emperors have frequented the shores of the Mediterranean, and this 14-day tour is designed to furnish these same experiences along with the option for excitement should your family desire a more active approach to travel.

Starting in Naples, on the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea, your arrival in this classic Italian destination will be marked with ancient, artistic, and culinary features, demonstrating why it is one of the top attractions for travelers around the world. A day trip to the nearby slopes of Mt. Vesuvius and the ruins of Pompeii will provide a graphic introduction to not just the abundance of ancient history but also the power of nature to remind civilization of its place. The soothing notes and flavors of a gelato-making course will provide a tasty glimpse into the proud history of Neapolitan gastronomy, and a dive beneath the cobbled streets of this region’s capital will remind you how ubiquitous the history of this city is.

The second leg of your tour will explore the Sorrentine peninsula to the south in addition to the rugged mountains, beaches, and gorgeous views that have attracted Roman emperors and various VIPs over the centuries. Visits to Sorrento, Amalfi, and Capri will ensure that your exposure to much of the best of these rural communities while offering fun-filled experiences for your family regardless of their age. As summer represents the warmest and most crowded time for these locales, the best time to indulge in this convenient tour is in the late Spring or early Fall. This will ensure your enjoyment of relatively empty beaches and roomy restaurants before the annual crowds of day-trippers and sun-worshippers in August.
