Day 1

The trip departs from Vicenza on Thursday night. The exact meeting point will be emailed out roughly 1 week prior to departure. Please meet your trip leader 30 minutes prior to departure. Travel to the Amalfi Coast is by private, luxury coach bus. We make one 45 minute stop. Upon arrival to the Amalfi Coast, we will immediately check into our accommodation.

Day 2

Friday morning we depart by private boat cruise to Positano. The boat cruise comes with an included lunch and is equipped with a bar to purchase beverages. Your guides will take music requests all morning long. The private boat cruise will stop at a secluded beach for swimming and photos before ending in colorful Positano for the afternoon.

You will then spend the afternoon relaxing on the beach, swimming in the sparkling blue waters, and browsing the many shops of Positano, a town known for its ceramics and lace! It is also possible to rent a boat, kayaks, or stand-up paddleboards while there (availability based on the season & weather). Late in the afternoon, our private boat will take you back to your accommodation in Sorrento. Please note: The Positano boat cruise is weather dependent. If the weather does not permit for the boat cruise, we will take private bus transfers to Positano.

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 to the English Inn, an outdoor beer garden.

Day 3

Saturday morning we depart for the port where we board the ferry and set sail for the Island of Capri. Upon arrival, we begin our private island tour. First stop is the Blue Grotto. If you want to enter the cave, you will be transferred directly from our boat into small row boats that will bring you into the grotto (weather permitting, price not included). 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. When in Capri town you will have time to explore the main Piazza, with the georgeous view of the Marina Grande bay, while enjoying a fresh squeezed orange granita. The best is yet to come though!

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 sample of chocolate and limoncello at Carlo's Sandal Shop. You will be able to see Salvatore, one of the original Sandal makers, at work. You will have the remainder of the afternoon free. Riding the chairlift to the top of Mt. Solaro to get a breathtaking 360 degree view of the island is a must, as well as grabbing a unique pair of custom-made sandals before enjoying an authentic lunch at a local restaurant! 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 later that day. 

Saturday night you have free to yourself to either kick back at your accommodation or head into Sorrento. 

Day 4

Sunday morning we check out and 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 where we recommend eating at our favorite spot, Pompeii Pizza, for a delicious brick oven cooked pizza at a great price. Bus2alps has an optional 1 hour guided tour of the ruins (price not included). The guides paint an excellent picture of Pompeii life during the Roman era. You also have the option to enter without a guide and see the ruins at your own pace. After touring Pompeii we depart in the afternoon to return to Vicenza.
