Our flight lands in Rome, from which we will drive the countryside to Sorrento, with its 17th-18th century architecture, and past identity as Pompeii. We’ll explore the ancient city, once covered in ash from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Next is a stop at the Isle of Capri, for boutiques, views, museums, the Faraglioni Rocks, Piazzetta Umberto, and Marina Grande. We’ll then voyage to the famed Almafi Coast, including the town of Ravello, the once host of figures such as Wagner, Greta Garbo, Winston Churchill, and the Kennedys. Then it’s on to Positano with its terraced hills, and Amalfi, a romantic town on the Gulf of Salerno, followed by a tour the Benedictine Abbey of Montecassino founded in 529. Then it’s on to Rome to see the Capitoline Hill, Colosseum, Trevi Fountin, and the Pantheon. You’ll also have the option to visit Florence or stroll Rome’s Via Veneto. There will be plenty of opportunity to visit the many shops and cafes for a cappuccino. We will conclude our trip with a visit to the Vatican to see the Tapestry Gallery, Map Gallery, Raphael Rooms, Sistine Chapel, Vatican Library Hall, St. Peter’s Basilica and La Pieta, and the Canopy over the High Altar. Tour includes: Deluxe Motorcoach transport; all luggage handling, taxes, airfare and transfers, and hotel fees and gratuities for driver and local guides; comprehensive travel insurance, plus more!
