Sorrento's impressive seaside cliffs and luxury hotels have attracted such famous personalities as Luciano Pavarotti. You will have a brief driving tour to orient you to the town, which you will be free to explore on your own tomorrow.

Conveniently located in the town center, you can also visit a fragrant lemon and orange grove, where you can sample and purchase limoncello, a local lemon liqueur, among other products.
If you prefer, you can spend the day on the picturesque island of Capri via a hydrofoil ferry from Naples. A popular resort since Roman times, the beautiful island of Capri is a joy to explore on foot. You can Capri on their own or have our guide take you for the day.

Day 3 - Amalfi Coast private tour: Positano, Amalfi, Positano and Ravello, overnight in Sorrento 

Today you will enjoy a private tour of the beautiful Amalfi Coast, beginning with the breathtakingly beautiful resort town of Positano.  This little town offers many photo and shopping opportunities, between its multi-colored houses clinging to the cliff face overlooking the bay, and the fashionable boutiques and cobblers’ shops along its pedestrian main street. From Positano you will head to beautiful Ravello, situated high above the Amalfi Coast offering picture-picture views of the town and the coastline below.
On the way back to Sorrento, you will have a short stop in Amalfi, a UNESCO World Heritage site, on the gulf of Salerno.  The 11th century Baroque duomo (cathedral) is at the top of a high staircase and it overlooks the main square, the perfect place to sit and enjoy the town.

 

Day 4 - Transfer back to Rome or to Naples’ airport or train station, tour of Mt. Vesuvius

Optional Day 4: Skip the tour of Mt. Vesuvius. Private transfer to Naples airport or train station.

Today you will have a guided tour of Mt. Vesuvius. The journey begins with the slow trip up the windy road up the hill until the parking lot to the crater. You must leave the car behind here and take a 30-minute hike of moderate difficulty to the top, which reaches nearly 4,200 feet. The views and fresh air here are well worth the effort.
At the end of our journey, we will transfer you to your hotel in Rome, or else provide a private transfer to the Naples airport.
