If you've ever wanted to visit Italy this is your chance. You won't find a better value!! Especially since May is the beginning of high season... the weather is warm but not too hot and the crowds are low. The culinary experiences in this part of the world are to die for and the bottle of house red wine you just ordered with your dinner is probably as good as you've ever tasted! Don't miss out on this one.
The Amalfi coast is on the southern end of the Sorrentine peninsula. From our base in Sorrento you'll have ample time to soak up the beauty of this region on your own. Take a ferry to the Isle of Capri and visit the Blue Grotto and the town of Anacapri, visit Positano for it's restaurants and jaw dropping beauty, or just hang out in Sorrento wandering thru the alleyways, enjoying some local Limoncello and settling in to a more simple life and easier rythym.
Herculaneum was a Roman city buried by Mount Vesuvius along with Pompeii in 92AD. It's better preserved and less touristed than it's sister city so you get a real feel for what Roman life was like without fighting the crowds at Pompeii. After our visit we'll head to Naples for a few hours of free time before we head north to Rome.
Rome needs no introduction... The Coliseum, the ancient Roman Forum, The Vatican, Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the piazzas, the food, the wine and the twisting cobblestone alleys and hidden restaurants of the Trastevere neighborhood on the banks of the Tiber River. After our guided tour of the Coliseum and Forum you will have plenty of free time to explore these wonders on your own.
