Amalfi Coast from Pompeii to Sorrento




THE ruins of Pompeii that was obliterated by Mt Vesuvius in 79AD, and conversely ever-beautiful Ravello and its Villa Cimbrone whose famed apartments and gardens were holiday-home to DH Lawrence, Virginia Woolf, Richard Wagner and Gore Vidal amongst others, are just two highlights of 7-days on Italy's Amalfi Coast with Carolinasusi Italia Tours in September/October this year.


Along the way through this land of Homer's Odyssey, you'll also visit the ruins of the Greek temples of Paestum that are some of the best-preserved in Europe, drive through open plains on which buffalo roam, taste world-famous Mozzarella cheeses, catch your breath at the beauty of Positano – and browse its fashionable boutiques  – and have a day in picture-perfect Sorrento overlooking the Bay of Naples.


You'll stay 6-nights at picturesque coastal Minori, visit the UNESCO-listed Caserta Royal Palace, wander the little village of Amalfi that gives its name to this spectacular region – and of course taste the famed local lemon-based liqueur, Limoncello.


Price starts from $2990pp twin-share ex-Rome airport, with single supplements available, and includes 4-star accommodation, all breakfasts, some lunches and dinners, entries where required, tastings at select venues, local transport, and the services of an experienced full-time Italian tour leader together with a Carolinasusi Italia Tours owner Carrol or Sue.
