Southern Italy Journey
A unique and intimate journey through the spectacular Amalfi Coast towns of Positano, Ravello, Amalfi and the magical island of Capri!
6 Days - 5 Nights | Limited to journey availability between Jun 13th-30th 2020 or Oct 18th-30th 2020
Spellbinding beauty around every corner.
Pictures are a useless attempt to capture the beauty of this region. The Amalfi coast and the island of Capri are world renowned and have been a sought after travel destination since Roman times. No matter where you turn, the views are spellbinding, the history is rich and the food unforgettable. The people of southern Italy are warm and welcoming, their unique cooking style and local wines reflect the same amiability.
Here’s the plan:
Day 1: Welcome to the Amalfi Coast! Join us in the hilltop hamlet of Nocelle and settle into your family run B&B (a converted farm house) before exploring this peaceful little village. We’ll enjoy a house-made dinner served on a terrace overlooking the Amalfi Coast this evening.
*Easy / Dinner / Sleep Nocelle, Positano
Day 2: Embark on a private walking tour of Ravello this morning! You’ll be treated to an insider’s look of Ravello’s historic villas, gardens and magnificent Duomo. Explore the many alleys and beautiful beaches of Positano. Return to Nocelle for another amazing dinner of typical southern Italy specialties.
*Moderate / Breakfast, Dinner / Sleep Nocelle, Positano
Day 3: This morning we hike the “Path of the gods”, one of the 10 best walks in the world! Visit Amalfi for an unforgettable lunch at one of my favorite farm-to-table agriturismo. From here, explore the historic, bustling seaside village of Amalfi!
*Strenuous / Breakfast, Lunch / Sleep Nocelle, Positano
Day 4: This morning we’ll depart for the island of Capri! Explore the more authentic part of the island - Anacapri. Experience authentic Caprese dishes created using goods directly from the island. Discover historic Villa San Michele, take the chair lift up to Monte Solaro (the island’s highest point, with the best view).
*Moderate / Breakfast, Lunch / Sleep Anacapri, Capri
Day 5: This morning we’ll explore the eastern part of the island including the world famous Piazetta, Natural Arch, Grotta Matermania and Augustus Gardens. This afternoon we’ll embark on a private boat tour around the island! We’ll explore (and swim if you’d like) in some of the hidden grottos. Participate in an authentic Caprese cooking class and taste local wines for dinner!
*Moderate / Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner / Sleep Anacapri, Capri
Day 6: We’ll depart Capri for Naples this morning and bid farewell until next time!
