The history of Pompeii, the breath-taking Amalfi Coast and the glitzy glamour of Capri.
Pineapple on pizza is criminal. Chicken mixed with pasta is sacrilege. Even uttering ‘spaghetti and meatballs’ could get you in trouble. But don’t argue with the Italians, because when it comes to food, they’re always right. On this trip, you slurp on their creamy gelato with a backdrop of the kaleidoscopically-colourful buildings of the Amalfi Coast, sip on limoncello in a traditional restaurant in Sorrento, and feast on pizza after exploring the ancient town that was frozen in time, Pompei. You’ll come back having seen the best sights Italy has to offer, and maybe just little more snobbish about food!
We spend 3 days exploring Italy. We visit Rome, Sorrento, Pompeii, Capri, Amalfi, Ravello.

3 Day Itinerary
Day 1: Rome, Pompeii and Sorrento
Your adventure begins as we set through the lush Italian countryside. Our first stop this afternoon is the site of Pompeii, famous for the destruction Vesuvius rained down upon the town and her citizenry in the 1st Century AD. Your local guide will show you all the highlights of this monumental location, featuring some amazingly well preserved artefacts and insights into life during the Pax Romana. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, try an authentic wood fired Margherita or a refreshing Granita. We then depart for Sorrento to check in at the campsite, with about an hour to relax by the pool and check out the facilities. Later we’ll make our way into the city for a short orientation walk followed by the highlight of the day for many: a demonstration of how to make limoncello by local legend Tony. Those joining us for the Italian feast this evening will meet with the local guide to enjoy a dinner of pastas, meats, and desserts. Afterwards we head out to a garden cocktail bar to take in the vibes of Sorrento by night.
Day 2: Capri and Sorrento
Our adventure continues this morning as we make our way to the campsite beach to board a vessel for the island of Capri. After a short but breathtakingly scenic skip across the Tyrrhenian Sea we will be greeted by the many beautiful formations that dot Capri’s landscape and coastline. We will have a guided tour of the island by boat where all the best sights will be highlighted, after which we dock at the Marina Grande under the stony gaze of Monte Solaro. The rest of the day is yours to enjoy as you please, there are chairlifts available for those wishing to see Capri from the summit of Solaro. Also on Capri, the Blue Grotto is a sea cave and former marine temple you can tour by boat. If basking in the sun and surf are more your style, enjoy a day at one of Capri’s many gorgeous beaches. We say addio in the late afternoon and return to the camp by boat.
Day 3: Sorrento, Amalfi, Ravello and Rome
This morning we have an early departure as we make our way to Rome. Enjoy the stunning views on offer as we travel along the Amalfi Coast, including scenic land formations, celebrity homes, and the labyrinthian one-way streets. We will stop for refreshments at a fruit stand overlooking the village of Positano before arriving at Amalfi Town for a stop. Sample the local pastries, gelato and delectable arancini. Among the sights on offer are the ancient burial grounds of Chiostro del Paradiso with its intricate architecture, the famous Amalfi Cathedral, and Amalfi’s fabulous beaches. Afterwards we take a short trip to Ravello, the last town, nestled in the clifftops high above the Amalfi Coast, enjoy some lunch and a spectacular view of the Bay of Solerno. We then make our way back to the Camping Village Roma, where we’ll arrive in the early evening and say our goodbyes. We hope to see you again! If you’re continuing your journey on our Hop-on Hop-off network, the next stop is Florence via Orvieto and Siena!
