Day 2

Along to the Amalfi Coast

Start your morning with wellness activity on the patio overlooking the Amalfi Coast, followed by breakfast at the hotel. After breakfast, meet your private English-speaking driver in the hotel lobby for an unforgettable excursion to let you relish the unique sights of this amazing coast. Our first stop will be to Positano, where you will have the opportunity to take in beautiful scenery and capture the moment with photos and videos of this quaint village from the top. You will have the chance to reach the center of the town through the pedestrian area, walking its narrow streets lined with boutiques and cafes. During the drive, you will stop to visit Furore, a village divided into two—on one side its marina, or the Fjord, on the other the country, with its houses scattered along the ridge, practically invisible to the eyes of those traveling along the Amalfi coast. 
Next stop will be Amalfi, which is the principal town of this coast road. It is a unique town with the 11th-century cathedral of St. Andrew right in the main square, said to hold the remains of the apostle. Here, you will have some time to stroll through the town and have lunch in a typical seafood restaurant. Our last stop will be Ravello, which has long been a retreat for artists and writers.

“The Path of Gods”

Start your morning with a hearty breakfast at the Hotel. After breakfast, you will meet in the lobby of your hotel with your English-speaking driver and transfer to Bomerano to meet your hiking guide. The Paths of the Gods Hike (in Italian called “Il Sentiero Degli Dei”) is a marvelous route for trekking lovers, offering panoramic views with few equals in the world, ranging from Capri and Faraglioni to Punta Campanella and the island of Li Galli. The path offers an experience in contact with nature, among a fragrant and thick Mediterranean maquis made of rosemary, laurel, myrtle, thyme, holm oaks, alders, strawberry trees, and heather. It is not rare to see weasels, owls, hedgehogs, foxes, and the wonderful peregrine falcon during the excursion.

Capri Island at leisure

Start your morning off with a wellness activity and breakfast at the Hotel. Today, you will visit the beautiful Island of Capri. In the morning, you will be transferred to the ferry landing to take the public hydrofoil from the port of Sorrento to Capri. Since the second half of the 19th century, Capri has gradually become one of the most popular resorts in southern Italy, famous for its magnificent scenery and the mild climate in which vegetation flourishes despite a general lack of water. Once you arrive at the island, you may visit both towns, Capri and Anacapri, by public minivan. 
Enjoy lunch at leisure in a typical restaurant in Capri. While on the island you can visit the Gardens of Augusto. This is one of the best places to see in Capri and is located just a short walk from the center of Capri town. At the back of the gardens are two terraces that offer breathtaking views of the sea, the surrounding lush greenery, and the famous Faraglioni rocks. 
Should a trek be more suitable, you can hike Monte Solaro, the highest point of the island. There is no need to worry about bringing climbing gear as it is rather easy to get to the summit! The hiking path starts in Anacapri (you will need to take a bus from Capri) and it is an easy hike for anyone in good condition. You will enjoy the local flora on the way up and once you are at the top, you will enjoy the region's best views all over the Bay of Naples. You will return to Sorrento on the 4:30 PM hydrofoil, which arrives in Sorrento at about 5 PM. The rest of the evening will be at your leisure and dinner will be on your own with an overnight stay in Sorrento.

Pompeii

Begin your morning with a wellness activity and breakfast at the hotel before exploring Pompeii. We will depart on a private transfer by bus with an English-speaking assistant from your hotel to Pompeii. 
Along the way, stop in the Vesuvius area reaching Pompeii, the ancient Roman village destroyed by volcanic dust. The mixture of art, architecture, and nature will leave you breathless. Pompeii, along with Herculaneum, was buried under 4 to 6 meters (13 to 20 ft) of volcanic ash and pumice in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79. Many of the inhabitants were also buried before they could escape. The city has been largely preserved because of lack of air and moisture over the centuries. Today Pompeii is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Italy. You will enjoy a 2-hour private guided tour of this open-air museum, visiting many of the attractions, many of which were left intact because of the city's preservation under ash. After spending 2 hours in this magnificent place, meet your driver and depart for the Sorrentini Vini Farm for a visit of the winery, wine tasting and lunch! You will tour the winery on the slopes of Mount Vesuvius, the very volcano that buried Pompeii under ash. The family-run winery offers sparkling, white, red, and dessert wines for you to taste on property. After lunch, return back to Sorrento and spend the afternoon at leisure enjoying another optional wellness activity or sipping coffee on the outdoor terrace.
Dinner will be at your leisure with an overnight in Sorrento.
