Itinerary
1
Day 1
Fly to Naples; transfer to Bomerano.
Fly to Naples and transfer to Bomerano, a small village in the municipality of Agerola. Our comfortable family-run hotel is located in proximity of the town centre and provides a relaxing retreat from the busier towns by the sea.
2
Day 2
Sightseeing in Amalfi and glorious Ravello.
Leaving the Agerola plain we descend by private bus to Amalfi. The town is the largest on the coast and was popular in Edwardian times with the British upper classes as a winter holiday destination. The large Duomo Cathedral dominates the town with its bright coloured tiles which are typical of the region. Continuing on by bus we climb to the romantic town of Ravello for some of the best views of the Amalfi coastline. Ravello also has a grand Duomo but the Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone are thereal gems of the town. Set amidst elegant gardens, the villas balconies stand at the edge of the cliffs offering stunning views aptly described by André Gide as 'closer to the sky than the seashore'. There is time to wander, enjoy a coffee and soak up the atmosphere before we return to the cooler climes of Bomerano.
3
Day 3
Naples sightseeing including Piazza Plebiscito and the National Museum.
We transfer after breakfast to the Bay of Naples where we will spend the morning visiting the intriguing city of Herculaneum. Buried in AD 79 by a giant mudslide, triggered by the eruption of Mt Vesuvius, the perfectly preserved remains give us an amazing insight into the life of a Roman city. After lunch we will travel by bus high up onto the slopes of Vesuvius itself. Depending on weather conditions, you may choose to be led by a specialist Volcano guide through one of the many incredible walks around the crater of Vesuvius (optional).

Day 4
Spectacular 'Walk of the Gods' to Positano; boat to Amalfi.
Today we enjoy one of the world's finest day walks. Leaving from our front door step it's a short stroll through the quiet village of Bomerano before we join the 'Walk of the Gods'. The route follows the contours of the land for the majority of the day with amazing views of the Amalfi coastline far below. In season the meadows are carpeted with flowers and the coastal waters teem with cruisers and pleasure boats. Our final destination is Positano, a near vertical town of colourful buildings reached by a network of ancient paths and tracks. On the way there is plenty of time to admire the beautiful views of the Amalfi before we descend 1500 steps to the beautiful coastal town. There is time for private exploration before we return in the late afternoon to our hotel by boat and bus.
5
Day 5
Free day to relax, visit Pompeii, or take a boat ride along the coast (all optional).
Today is free to relax around Bomerano, take an self-guided walk either through the hills or down to the sea or maybe enjoy a boat ride along the coast to some famous Amalfi coast towns. Alternatively a private transfer can be arranged to the vast buried city of Pompeii (optional).
6
Day 6
Visit Herculaneum ruins; up to Vesuvius for short optional walk.
We return to the Bay of Naples for a day of sightseeing. Our tour leader will provide an orientation tour through the Naples top attractions including Piazza Plebiscito and the National Museum (entrance is optional). Naples has a mixed reputation as a city but the electric atmosphere and mix of modern and historic architecture make it a unique Mediterranean city worth visiting. After the sightseeing there will be free time to explore before we return to our hotel.
7
Day 7
Boat to Capri; free afternoon to explore the island.
We leave the hotel after breakfast and take the bus down to Amalfi and board the boat to Capri. The journey along the Amalfi Coast is spectacular with small coves and bays of clear azure water overlooked by towering cliffs. The time spent on Capri is unguided and on arrival you are free to explore independently. Your tour leader however might recommend to maximise your time on the island and arrange an excursion by local taxis and cable car (optional, paybale locally). A beautiful walk will take you up to Capri town and along a network of small pedestrianised streets to visit the remains of Villa Jovis, the former home of the fearsome Roman emperor Tiberius. A walk around the spectacular coastline is recommended and allows you to see a natural rock arch and the famous Faraglioni, rock stacks which stick vertically out of the sea. There is also time to do a spot of shopping in some of islands boutique shops before we return by boat and bus to our hotel.
