TRIP OVERVIEW


PICK UP & DROP OFF: Naples Airport

Our journey starts at the foot of the volcano Pompeii as we are cast back almost 2000 yrs to when the once thriving market town of Pompeii was buried under ash during a massive eruption of the volcano. A visit to its excavations of evokes indescribable emotions to all its lucky visitors. Thereafter the countryside and serenity of the Amalfi Coast Peninsula await us.

You might spend a couple of days beforehand in Naples, famous for coffee and pizza, masterpieces preserved inside the numerus churches around the city and the archaeological museum. Mt Vesuvius from its slumbering crater, observes the busy world passing by.

On this small group walking tour you are rewarded with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea and Coastline whose rocky mountains rise nearly 5000 feet steeply from the deep blue sea. Wildflowers such as broom and cistus rose decorate the hillsides in Spring and cyclamen carpet the woods in Autumn.

The Amalfi coast has long been a favourite destination for the flamboyant lifestyles of the stylish Jet Set so it is hardly surprising to find out that Roman Emperor Tiberius moved his court to Capri, that the Russian dancer Rudolf Nureyev owned an island near Positano and American writer Gore Vidal chose Ravello for his home.
