Detailed Description

Italy is known for an encompassing Old World ambiance at the center of even its most modern cities. Your 8-day family getaway vacation to Italy takes you to from splendid seaside towns decorating the coastal mountainside to remarkable cities with medieval roots and Renaissance grandeur.

The luxury family vacation begins with your arrival in the cosmopolitan city of Naples.

The following day, the family delights as they step onto a boat bound for the town of Amalfi located farther down the coastline.

You will have a guided walking tour around the breathtaking cliffs. A private cruise whisks you around the island where you discover majestic swimming areas with remnants of Roman influence that overlook the sapphire water.
