Set around the Bay of Naples, the Sorrento Peninsula occupies what is said to be one of the most picturesque corners of the Mediterranean. It offers visitors a treasure trove of delights and is an ideal base for sightseeing, with ancient Pompeii and the breath-taking Amalfi Coast within easy reach. And for an unforgettable day out, a visit to the magical Isle of Capri is not to be missed.

On the Sorrento Peninsula we stay in Vico Equense which is, in many ways, a typical southern Italian coastal town and has the charm you would expect from such an idyllic location. It’s the perfect place to use as a base for exploration on this very special Italian holiday, with so much to see and do everywhere you go.

When you want to take things easy the Sorrento Peninsula is ideal for you too, with pavement cafes where you can relax over a refreshing cool drink and peaceful walks along pine covered headlands. Bargain hunters will find fascinating shops selling local handicrafts including inlaid woodwork, lace and hand made sandals.

Relax and enjoy this fabulous holiday as our knowledgeable Tour Manager and expert local guides show you around the Sorrento Peninsula and take you to discover a world famous historical site, visit charming coastal towns and villages and spend a magical day on the iconic Isle of Capri.

Excursions & Itinerary

Day 1 - Fly to Naples

On arrival you’ll be met and transferred to our hotel for a 7 night stay.

Days 2 - 7

During our stay we have arranged a superb programme of four included excursions and sightseeing trips to enable you to discover this beautiful region of Italy. There are also two days at leisure to do your own thing, when you can relax in the comfortable surroundings of our hotel with a day by the swimming pool, or explore our resort and nearby attractions.


After breakfast, in the company of our Tour Manager we go to the nearby Circumvesuviana light railway station for the 10 minute train journey to Sorrento. Our Tour Manager will give you an individual return train ticket. On arrival we begin with a walking tour of some of Sorrento’s oldest quarters. You'll also get the chance to learn how the area's famous liqueur, limoncello, is made - with a tasting included of course. After the walk the time is your own. Perhaps shop for souvenirs – the resort is filled with small shops specialising in ceramics and hand-made leather sandals and, after your earlier tasting, a bottle of limoncello might also be top of your list. There are also countless pavement cafes and ice cream parlours when you are ready for some refreshments. Later this afternoon meet up again with our Tour Manager who will accompany you on the short train journey back to Vico Equense. Alternatively, as you have a return train ticket, stay on longer in Sorrento and make your way back whenever you like.

Amalfi Coast Cruise

The Amalfi Coast is one of the most stunning coastlines in Europe and stretches along the entire southern side of the Sorrento Peninsula, with scenery that is absolutely breathtaking. We sail from Sorrento's main harbour and past the Galli Islands as we make our way to our first port of call, Positano, with its pastel-coloured houses which seemingly cascade down the hillside to the sea. The Church of Santa Maria Assunta, which is just above the sea front, features a majolica-tiled dome and a 13th-century Byzantine Virgin Mary and Child painting. We stay in Positano for around 2 ½ hours, giving ample time for exploring and shopping in the winding streets and alleyways. Positano also has one of the coast’s longest beaches, the Spiaggia Grande, where you will find beachside cafes, bars and restaurants. Following our visit we continue our cruise, passing picture perfect fishing villages with their fishermen’s cottages and on to Amalfi itself. Amalfi, which used to be an important Maritime Republic, is characterised by tightly packed whitewashed villas. Overlooking it all is the beautiful 13th century Cathedral, with its mosaic façade and reached by a magnificent flight of stairs. The resort has a splendid promenade and the maze of narrow streets leading through to the Cathedral offer a good selection of craft shops, boutiques and pavement cafes. Again, we stay here for around 2 ½ hours before our return sailing back along the coast, with views over to the Isle of Capri, to Sorrento.


Pompeii was frozen in time when it was buried by a layer of ash and lava during the eruption of the Volcano Vesuvius in 79AD. Today, most of the city has been excavated and is probably the largest archaeological site in the world and offers the most complete record of everyday life 2,000 years ago. Its just a 20 minute journey on the Circumvesuviana railway, in the company of our Tour Manager, to Pompeii. The railway station is right outside the excavations, where we meet a local guide. During our guided tour of the excavations this morning we will discover everything about Pompeii’s history, its people and their way of life. You will be amazed when you walk along streets worn away by the wheels of chariots and lined with villas, houses, wine shops and even bakeries with loaves of bread still in the ovens. We then visit the centre of the excavated town with the forum, the public baths and the theatre, all of which are perfectly preserved. The entrance ticket to Pompeii is included in the holiday price.

Isle of Capri

Taking the fast ferry from Sorrento’s pretty little harbour, it takes just 20 minutes to sail over to one of the most beautiful islands in the world. This magical island has been home to Emperors, artists and poets over the centuries and is today, perhaps, Italy’s most exclusive holiday destination and needs little introduction. Capri’s harbour, the Marina Grande, is filled with the yachts of the rich and famous and the island’s pedestrian only streets are lined with stylish restaurants and chic designer boutiques. On arrival in Marina Grande a minibus will take us to the picturesque village of Anacapri on the slopes of Monte Solaro. You will have time to take a chair-lift ride to the summit of Solaro or visit the delightful Villa San Michele with its views back to the Sorrento peninsula (payable locally). Another highlight of our guided tour is Capri village itself. Here we will have a short walk through the meandering streets to the wonderful Augustus Gardens which overlook Gracie Fields villa ‘Song of the Sea’ and the Faraglioni rocks. The rest of the afternoon is free to explore at your own leisure - why not enjoy a cappuccino in one of the stylish pavement cafes in the ‘Piazza’, or there are some fabulous shops and boutiques to browse in?

Day 8

Today, at the appropriate time, we transfer to Naples airport to take the return flight to the UK.

The transfer time from Naples airport to your hotel is approximately one hour.
