Discover Sorrento & the Amalfi Coast

A supremely scenic week, with Meta di Sorrento as your base, includes the evocative remains of Pompeii, a drive along ‘the divine coast’ to Amalfi, Positano and Ravello, and Capri by boat

The ancient resort area of the Sorrentine peninsula is an encounter with history, culture and nature. Carefully collated to show you the best of this blissful area of Italy, this tour is designed for all JV guests to stay as one group in the same location in the small, yet typically Italian coastal town of Meta di Sorrento, a short drive away from bustling Sorrento where hotel space is becoming difficult to secure. Meta di Sorrento boasts a volcanic stretch of sandy beach which is a rarity along the coastline in this predominantly cliff-top region and is scenically viewed from your hotel, whether at the rooftop bar, panoramic restaurant or from the hotel rooms. The hotel restaurant offers an abundance of seafood options alongside classic Italian staples, plus there are a selection of restaurants towards the beach. A steep walk up to the town of Meta (or alternatively take the lift from the beach up to the roadside) will give you an insight into local Italian life and access to the bus and train station for independent exploration of the region. Meta di Sorrento is the perfect base to explore the beautiful Neapolitan coastline with included excursions to the neighbouring town of Sorrento with its elegant shops, characterful bars and excellent restaurants and the romantic Amalfi coast.

Vesuvio’s eruption in 79AD destroyed, yet preserved Pompeii, offering a unique insight into the Roman way of life and enhancing one’s knowledge and appreciation of Roman sites throughout the ancient world. Whilst Capri offers a glamorous taste of island life, known for its rugged landscape and a popular resort for European artists, writers and celebrities. And no visit to this area is complete without including Naples - one of Europe’s oldest cities founded by the Greeks, inhabited by the Byzantines, Normans, Spanish and Austrian rulers, and is now an enticing mix of Old World charm and modernity. Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque styles all play their part throughout the city, making Naples a UNESCO World Heritage Site offering a plethora of piazzas, palaces and castles.

3 UNESCO Heritage Sites

Day 1 Fly from London Gatwick to Naples and transfer to Meta di Sorrento for seven nights at the 4-star Giosuè a Mare Hotel. Enjoy a welcome drink on the rooftop terrace.

Day 2 Enjoy a morning’s walking tour of Sorrento to let you get your bearings in this beautiful clifftop town, its graceful streets and lively squares lined with Romanesque churches and renaissance palazzi, its viewpoints across the bay to Capri and north to Mount Vesuvius. Return to Meta di Sorrento with the group transfer or enjoy time at leisure for independent exploration and return independently. (B)

Day 3 A full day tour of the Amalfi Coast takes you through the UNESCO listed landscape, along the 50km road hemming the Tyrrhenian Sea, and into Amalfi, clinging to its coastal cliff, climbing the hill in tiers of terrific views, and clustered beneath the Byzantine façade of its Sant’Andrea Cathedral; to Positano, the choice of the glitterati, known as ‘the vertical town’ for its pastel-painted houses improbably perched on sheer cliffs, and to ravishing, romantic Ravello, its opulent villas and thousand-year-old duomo basking on a high bluff above the gulf of Salerno. (B)

Day 4 Travel to Pompeii for a guided morning visit of the city, frozen in time on 24th October 79AD, and preserved beneath 3m of ash. A complete vision of a large city, it includes public buildings, frescoed villas, the forum, theatre and temples, and the ‘petrified bodies’ of humans and animals, in fact plaster-casts of the empty space where the bodies had been, but no less affecting. Continue to a farm and vineyard in the Mount Vesuvius area for a light lunch and wine tasting. (B, L)

Day 5 A day at leisure or perhaps take a half-day tour to visit the ceramics capital of Campania; Vietri for a half day excursion including the ceramics factory and time at leisure (£70). (B)

Day 6 A full-day tour of Naples including the historical centre, the impressive Gesù Nuovo church and Piazza Plebiscito, with a pizza lunch to celebrate being in the birthplace of the Margherita Pizza, invented in the 1800’s. (B, L)

Day 7 Enjoy a full-day tour of the island of Capri by hydrofoil from Sorrento. Take a panoramic drive of the island, with time at leisure in Capri town and continue to Anacapri for incredible views over the bay of Naples and a visit to Villa San Michele. Farewell dinner at the hotel. (B, D)

Day 8 Transfer to Naples for your return flight. (B)
