Pompeii

Pompeii

Today you can join our fantastic included excursion, first to the monastery of Montecassino, founded by St Benedict around 529. It was destroyed during World War II, but today has been re-constructed as a replica of its seventeenth century predecessor. We continue to Pompeii, engulfed during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79, where the inhabitants of this small town were literally frozen in time. To make the most of your visit why not join our optional guided walking tour? In 79AD the eruption of Mount Vesuvius buried the town of Pompeii in about 6/7 metres of stones and ash. Painstaking excavations, which are still ongoing, began in the 18th century and have uncovered a remarkable hidden city. Accompany your expert guide around the town, walking along roads with indents from the passing of chariot wheels and discovering the remains of homes, shops and public baths. With a little imagination and the explanations of your guide, it is not hard to get a picture of life in the town all those years ago. An experience not to be missed! (Entrance into the ruins is included in the price of the walking tour). Alternatively you can explore the excavations at your own pace (entrance at additional cost).

Rome

Rome

Today you have the full day to discover the Italian capital city of Rome on our included excursion. The Historic Centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with wonderful palaces, churches, basilicas, Roman ruins, monuments and fountains. It has an immensely rich historical heritage and cosmopolitan atmosphere. There will be ample free time for you to explore this wonderful city at your leisure. To make the most of your visit, why not join our optional guided sightseeing tour. The sightseeing tour takes place on both coach and foot and will introduce you to the city’s wonderful sights, including Piazza Venezia, the imposing Monument to Vittorio Emanuele II, the first king of Italy and the mighty Colosseum (entrance not included). Note: Although Rome is a relatively compact city, we would remind you that this is a walking tour, not suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties and we would recommend you wear suitable shoes for the day.

Sorrento

Sorrento

A day of choices today with three different optional excursions available. You may wish to join our optional visit to the popular Neapolitan resort town of Sorrento where you can spend the full day exploring at your leisure. The town and area have been a popular holiday resort for over 2000 years with all nationalities and is the perfect place to watch the world go by. If you wish to be introduced to all Sorrento has to offer then join our optional Taste of Sorrento excursion, where you can combine your visit to Sorrento with a guided walking tour of the town and a visit to a Limoncello factory. Limoncello is the signature lemon liqueur of the area, and our visit will include a short tour of the factory and orchard along with a sampling of this famous drink. Alternatively, instead of spending the day in Sorrento, you can join our optional guided visit to the picturesque Isle of Capri. Our visit takes us to Capri town, famous for its main square Piazza Umberto, which has a pretty white church and several open-air cafes where you can sit and watch the world drift by. Leading off the square are medieval looking alleyways and arcades full of shops selling handicrafts of the island, clothing, jewellery made from coral and gold, shoes and ceramics. Your place on the excursion to Capri can be reserved at the time of booking at a cost of £95pp.
