Day 1: UK – Naples

After your flight to Naples we’ll transfer you to the pretty town of Vico Equense, on the Sorrento Peninsula. Your hotel is in the heart of the town and offers lovely views over the Bay of Naples towards Mount Vesuvius.

Day 2: Pozzuoli, Solfatara & Cumae

A day of contrasts awaits you on an included tour, which begins at Pozzuoli. Here you can follow in the footsteps of gladiators as you wander the maze of underground tunnels beneath its well-preserved Roman amphitheatre. In its heyday, this arena held crowds of up to 20,000 people. Next you’ll move on to the unique landscape of the Solfatara volcanic crater.

Day 3: Pompeii

Today is the day that you will explore the remarkable ruins of Pompeii, just a short journey away via the Circumvesuviana Railway.

Day 4: Amalfi & Paestum

Before you reach historic Paestum today, a treat is in store in the shape of the beautiful Amalfi Coast. You’ll travel along twisting clifftop roads and through the lovely resorts of Positano and Ravello to reach your destination. At your journey’s end you’ll discover three magnificent Doric temples.

Day 5: Oplontis & Herculaneum

Today your Tour Lecturer will host a further day of exploration. Villa Poppaea at Oplontis was so well preserved by the ash from Mount Vesuvius’ eruption that the Roman art inside almost looks freshly painted. Nearby, we’ll head to Herculaneum, which was also buried by the same eruption.

Day 6: Capri

Today is free for you to spend at leisure. You could choose to explore Vico Equense at your own pace, or maybe soak up the sun by the pool or on the hotel’s wisteria-covered terrace.

Day 7: Vesuvius & Naples

You’ve seen Vesuvius from a distance and learned all about its immense power but today you can actually walk to its summit. Towering almost 1,300 metres above the Bay of Naples, this is mainland Europe’s only active volcano and the views you’ll experience will take your breath away.

Day 8: Naples – UK

Today we’ll transfer you to the airport for your flight back to the UK.

Hotel Aequa, Vico Equense

The Aequa Hotel is in the heart of the little cliff-top town of Vico Equense and enjoys wonderful views over the Bay of Naples towards Vesuvius. Hotel facilities include a restaurant, bar and a swimming pool.
