Rome, Sorrento, and Capri—three of Italy’s most popular cities are waiting for you on this grand Southern Italy holiday. Spend four nights in Rome and two nights each in Capri and on the Neapolitan Riviera. Explore Italy’s southern charms at a leisurely pace to discover ancient historic sites, spectacular scenery, and authentic Mediterranean beauty.

History buffs will be thrilled with the views of the Rome’s Colosseum, where the gladiator fought during the Roman Empire. You will step back in time on your visit of Pompeii, which was completely buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This preserved site gives you an amazingly detailed look into ordinary life 2,000 years ago at the peak of the Roman Empire. During your guided visit, admire the paintings that remain on the walls, and look for signs of the early fast-food restaurants beloved by ancient Romans.

On the quest for amazing scenery, this Italy tour is sure to delight. You’ll visit Montecassino, famous for its abbey and for being the site of the important battle during WWII. You’ll witness breathtakingly beautiful views on your excursion to the Amalfitan Coast. Following the natural course of the coastline, the winding road features coastal mountains plunging into the sea, dramatic cliffs, inlets, and bays interspersed with picturesque towns—all with the deep-blue water as the background. It is nothing short of spectacular!

Enjoy visits to the laid-back town of Sorrento and the charming island of Capri. Both offer breathtaking views of the crystal-clear, blue sea. Spend time gazing at the mesmerizing water, enjoy the marvellous Mediterranean climate, indulge in the delicious taste of local recipes, wander the maze of streets, shop at the boutiques, or sip a real “limoncello” in the famous “piazzetta.”

From the ancient archaeological sites to the awe-inspiring scenery, this affordable Italy tour offers value-minded travellers a unique and unforgettable holiday!
