Day 1

The trip departs Florence from the Santa Maria Novella train station. The meeting point is in the International Ticketing Hall opposite tracks 8 and 9. Please meet your trip leader 20 minutes prior to departure. Travel to The Amalfi Coast is by private, luxury coach bus with A/C, DVD, and bathroom. We make one 45 minute stop. We will arrive late that night.  Upon arrival to The Amalfi Coast, we will immediately check into our accommodation.


Day 2

Friday morning we depart by private bus to Positano (included). This spectacular, scenic drive hugs the coastline before depositing us in the heart of Positano. We will wind our way through town ending at the black sand beaches. Once in Positano, your Bus2alps trip leader will point out Vini e Panini for sandwiches, snacks, and drinks, in addition to other good places to eat. You will then have the entire day to relax on the beach, swim in the sparkling blue waters, and browse the many shops of Positano, known for ceramics and lace! It is also possible to rent a boat, kayaks, or stand-up paddle boards while there. Our private bus will take you directly back to our accommodation. Saturday night you have free to yourself to either kick back at one of the scenic viewpoints at your accommodation or head into Sorrento. 

Friday night we organize optional dinners in downtown Sorrento at excellent restaurants with extensive menus of local specialties at great prices. Afterwards we can head down to the English Inn, an outdoor beer garden with drinks specials for Bus2alps members.


Day 3

Saturday morning we depart for the port where we board the ferry and set sail for Capri. Upon arrival, we begin our private island tour. First stop is the Blue Grotto, where you will be transferred directly from our boat into small row boats that will bring you into the grotto (weather permitting). We will then continue around the island to check out more sights finishing at Marina Grande. Your trip leader will then walk you up to Capri Town. Our private transport will then bring us further up to Anacapri, the highest part of the island, where we will be welcomed with a free chocolate and limoncello tasting. You will have the remainder of the afternoon free. We suggest riding the chairlift to the top of Mt. Solaro to get a breathtaking 360 degree view of the island, grabbing a unique pair of custom made sandals, and having a scrumptious lunch at the great restaurants that your guides can point out to you! You also have the option of checking out the rest of the island or hanging out on the beach down by Marina Grande. The ferry departs from Marina Grande. Saturday night you have free to yourself to either kick back at your accommodation, or head back into downtown Sorrento. 


Day 4

Sunday morning we depart for Pompeii and Vesuvius. We arrive at Vesuvius where you will have the option to climb to the very top for an amazing view of the Bay of Naples. We will then depart for Pompeii and break for an hour for lunch. Join your trip leader for a cheap lunch at our recommended pizza place or panini shop. At Pompeii, Bus2alps will organize an optional professionally guided 2 hour tour. Bus2alps has been using the same 2 guides for the past 4 years and they paint an excellent picture of Pompeii life during the Roman era and relate it to young adults. You can also enter without a guide and see the ruins at your own pace. After touring Pompeii we depart late afternoon to return to Sorrento. You will have the evening free to head into Sorrento city center or hang out at the hostel.


Day 5
