Detailed Itinerary

For accurate departure times, travel times, prices of activities, and suggestions on how much extra money you will need, please contact info@bus2alps.com.

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 check in with 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. Upon arrival to the Amalfi Coast, we will immediately check into our accommodation.

Day 2

We depart for the port early in the morning 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, where you will be transferred directly from our boat into small row boats that will bring you into the grotto (weather permitting).  After the boat tour is finished, our trip leader will then walk us 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 free chocolate and limoncello. 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 Bus2alps’ favorite place in Anacapri, Le Arcate. 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. 

Friday night we organize an optional dinner in Sorrento city center at Il Leone Rosso, an excellent restaurant with an extensive menu of local specialties at great prices.  Transportation is included into downtown Sorrento and if you do not wish to join the group for dinner there are plenty of other great options to explore in the area. 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 by private bus to Positano (included). This spectacular, scenic drive hugs the coastline before depositing us high above Positano. After some photo opportunities, we will walk to the black sand beaches through this remarkable cliff-hanging coastal village. 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. From Positano you can venture further along the coast to the town of Amalfi. 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. 

Day 4

Sunday morning we depart for Pompeii. Bus2alps has an optional 1.5 hour guided tour of the ruins. The guides do an amazing job of painting an excellent picture of life in Pompeii during the Roman era in a fun and relatable way. The guided tour is highly recommended. You can also enter without a guide and see the ruins on your own. There will also be enough time for lunch. We suggest eating at our favorite spot, Pompeii Pizza, for a delicious brick oven cooked pizza at a great price. We depart Pompeii to return to Florence.
