Amalfi Coast

May 15-23, 2019

Discover Italy on a journey to the stunning Amalfi coast in the Campania Region, an engaging crossroads of ancient history, scenic beauty and captivating local culture. Spend seven nights in Sorrento, a beautiful city dramatically perched on a cliff overlooking the Bay of Naples, and admire the pretty pastel homes and fragrant lemon groves. Visit the vertical town of Positano, and appreciate the coast’s true beauty, and enjoy a nautical perspective during a cruise to the pretty town of Amalfi. Peek into the lives cut short at Herculaneum and Pompeii by the A.D. 79 eruption of Mount Vesuvius, see Paestum’s fascinating Greek ruins and explore the National Archaeological Museum in Naples. Discover the region’s culinary heritage with an authentic Neapolitan pizza lunch, and visit a farm to taste the local olive oil and cheese. Enjoy first-class accommodations and an extensive meal plan, featuring wine with dinner.
