An ideal way to welcome springtime: You start your journey in the Gulf of Naples, where the average daytime temperature is around 20 degrees C (68 F). You’ll spend all nights in classy Grand Hotel La Favorita***** in the heart of Sorrento, which will host you for the next few days. From there the much hailed coast of Positano and Amalfi is only a stone’s throw away.
Dolce Vita by the sea
Day 1: Sorrento
We will pick you up at Naples airport and take you to your hotel in Sorrento. Over drinks, you will get to know your fellow travellers and your tour guides. Following an introduction to the cars and the roadbook, you will already start to a south-west tour of the peninsula, offering stunning views of Capri island. Once you have made it back to your hotel, an experienced guide will walk you through Sorrento and tell tales from its rich history from Phenicians and Ancient Greece, Rome and the Normands.
Day 2: Amalfi coast at its best – Positano and Ravello
Today, we will be leaving Sorrent to the north west and take the Monti Lattari mountain roads uphill. Endless bends guarantee for exhilarating driving, while the panoramic views are either facing the Gulf of Naples or the Gulf of Salerno. Once you have arrived in Ravello, we will visit Villa Cimbrone and its gardens offering breathtaking views all over the Amalfi coast. After lunch, you will get to know the “Amalfitana”, the coast road built by the Spanish centuries ago.
Day 3 Amalfi Coast at its best – Amalfi and Vietri sul Mare
After breakfast we’ll choose a different road to the Amalfi coast. We’ll take a walk through the old town of the former Maritime Republic Amalfi , namesake of the entire region, and visit the cathedral that was built from two churches. Later, we’ll reach Vietri sul Mare in the Gulf of Salerno. Here you’ll have plenty of time to explore the town and enjoy lunch. Going back you’ll also follow coast with the azure blue sea and the isle of Capri on your left and bright limestone on your right. After a day of driving we’ll wind down by having dinner in the old town of Sorrento.
Day 4 Boat trip to Capri
If you think of the 50s and a Mediterranean island, Capri is more likely to come to your mind than any other island. Capri has long been a popular retreat for artists, intellectuals and celebrities. During the reign of Emperor Tiberius, Capri had even been the seat of the Roman Empire’s government for a decade. At mid-morning we’ll set out from Sorrento to Capri by boat. After our visit to the island we’ll head back to Naples airport where our trip ends.
