Package price per person, 6 days from € 419,00Group price valid from 20 participants.
The ideal tour for getting to know Rome and the Bay of Naples, two marvellous spots only 260 km away from one another. This combination will suit any clientele: the Eternal City with its incomparable monuments, from the Colosseum to the Roman Forum to the Vatican Museums; the Bay of Naples with its highly striking scenery, from Vesuvius to the Sorrento Peninsula. In Rome, we have made bookings for B&B only, to leave you with the opportunity of trying typical Roman cuisine, in the Trastevere district for example, after having visited the length and breadth of the city. In Sorrento, however, the stay is all about relaxation, with dinner in the hotel every night. Some excursions will show you the most interesting aspects of this area of Campania, and you will fall in love when you visit Naples!

Don’t miss St. Peter’s, the largest and most impressive church for Christianity, with works by Michelangelo and Bernini. Early afternoon, departure for the Sorrento Peninsula and accommodation in hotel for 3 nights HB.
Day 4 After breakfast, the morning is dedicated to a guided tour of Naples. Naples wins over every visitor with its countless testimonies to almost three thousand years of history; its old town filled with constantly changing moods, sound and music, colours and smells; its narrow streets and multi-story houses; and its lively, friendly, lovable people. We finish the visit with an aperitif in an historic caf´ in the centre. Free afternoon. Return to hotel for dinner.
Day 5 Breakfast, then departure for a full day trip to the ruins of Pompeii and the park of Vesuvius. Pompeii, the city buried by the great eruption of Vesuvius, is an impressive and revealing insight into life in antiquity. When you visit Pompeii, don’t miss the chance to go up Vesuvius as well. From Vesuvius you will have a wonderful view over the Gulf of Naples. Return to hotel for dinner.
