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.
