The first stop on your off-the-beaten-track tour is the bustling city of Naples and its wonderfully gritty atmosphere, followed by the elegant Amalfi Coast. This itinerary of essential Italian sights testifies to the greatness of the Roman Empire, featuring visits to Naples’ historic centre, as well as the iconic towns of the Amalfi Coast: Sorrento, Praiano and Ravello, which combine to form this UNESCO World Heritage-worthy coastline. Discover the beautifully-lit and sweet-scented Mediterranean landscape, with its stunning beaches, dizzying yet scenic roads, old churches, palaces and terraces that have inspired poets and musicians for generations. And of course, Italian food (and wine) features heavily throughout.
Enjoy indulgent dinners accompanied by sublime sea views in Sorrento and sample some of the best pizza on the planet in Naples (it is where it originated, after all).


Everything is 100% tailored to you


Depart from London and arrive in Naples around two-and-a-half hours later, where you’ll be collected from the airport and transferred to your hotel. Since you have three nights in the city, you can spend the rest of today relaxing and unwinding after your flight. Enjoy your first taste of authentic Neapolitan cooking this evening, either at your hotel or at a restaurant recommended by our local Concierge. If you’re looking for some comfort food, pizza is your best bet – the doughy dish was born here, so you won’t find fresher ingredients anywhere else.

DAYS 2 & 3


Today involves really digging into Naples’ history and culture. A city which boasts grandeur and grit in equal measure, hopping onto a traditional Italian Vespa is a great way to discover its many charms and quirks. An expert guide will lead the private tour through the historic streets, past Piazza del Municipio, Galleria Umberto I, Piazza Trento e Trieste, Chiesa di San Francesco di Paola and Borgo Marinari. Enjoy some dolce vita during a coffee break with some Neapolitan pastries, and if the weather isn’t on it best behaviour, your Vespa will be replaced with a Fiat 500. If you fancy sampling some Italian food other than pizza (as good as it is), we can arrange dinner in the fishing village of Marechiaro (a small village in the Posillipo quarter of Naples), for some fresh seafood.

On your final day in Naples, you’re free to explore more of the city at your own pace. The Naples metro system allows you to get around easily and if you’re a culture vulture, we’d recommend visiting the Museo Cappella Sansevero. Showcasing the city’s artistic heritage, there are a number of exhibits and artworks here worth exploring. Come evening, join locals on their passeggiata (evening stroll) by the water, before chowing down on some more Neapolitan food (we promise not to judge if you’re craving pizza again).



This morning you will be privately transferred from your hotel in Naples to the small town of Sorrento on the Sorrentine Peninsula, which should take around an hour and 15 minutes. Facing the Bay of Naples, this region invites you to relax on its picturesque beaches and marvel at the magnificent views across the water. Perched atop vertiginous cliffs, the town is set among lush greenery, including citrus and olive trees, and retains its Roman origins within the winding alleyways of its historic centre. The local museum also displays vestiges of previous occupations, from the Greeks and the Etruscans.



Rise bright and early for a cruise along one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world (yes, the Amalfi Coast is worthy of this accolade). Hop aboard your private gozzo (a typical Capri boat) in Sorrento and sail along the iconic coastline, stopping off in Positano and Ravello. The view of Positano from the water is a must-see, with its pastel houses clinging to the cliffs which plunge towards the sea. The town itself features steep alleyways lined with boutiques and cafes, and an ever-present scent of lemon and olive swirling on the breeze. Take a break from the water and enjoy lunch at a restaurant overlooking the twinkling Tyrrhenian Sea. Upon your return to Sorrento, relax this evening with a glass of wine and some exceptional Italian cuisine for dinner.



It’s time for the next town on your Amalfi Coast tour, so this morning you will be privately transferred the 50 minutes from Sorrento to Praiano. Another quintessential Amalfi Coast town, Praiano features white houses clinging to the cliff face, coves lapped at by turquoise waters and flowers galore. Once you’ve arrived and settled into your hotel room, you can spend some time walking along the trails which overlook the sea and enjoying the scent of myrtle and broom. In the evening, experience the cosy atmosphere of its small fishing port.

DAYS 7 & 8


You’ll want to cram in as many scenic sights as possible during your final two days on the Amalfi Coast. Head to Ravello, one of region’s hidden gems, known for its verdant cliffside gardens. There are also a number of churches and ancient palaces here, and you won’t want to miss the Belvedere of Villa Cimbrone, with its astonishing panoramic balcony that opens onto the coast. Spend your last day relaxing on the beaches of Praiano and sampling as many Italian dishes as you can before your departure.



Sadly it’s time to head back to Naples via private transfer, ready to catch your three-hour flight back to London.

A la carte

Off the coast of Naples - Procida Island

Were you charmed by the scenes from Il Postino or from The Talented Mr. Ripley? Have you dreamt of an Italy of salty air, fresh sea urchins and long, passionate conversations while the trawlers roll in? Procida is a magical island that will capture you from the moment you arrive, giving you that authentic Mediterranean, Italian feel, with its preserved architecture, medieval alleyways and colourful fishing houses.

Riding through the island on a Vespa, it's easy to feel like you're in a film, exploring the beaches and getting a feel for the island's energy. There's no shortage of festivities on this island: the sea festival, the lemon festival, 'Open doors day' (private historic houses then open to the public to host artistic events), and more.

As far as food is concerned, the recipes are most often decided according to the catch of the day: perfect for tasting in one of the family-owned taverns or on a terrace with your feet in the water.

Optional - Day trip to Naples or Sorrento

A stroll around the historic centre of Naples

with a private guide. UNESCO has declared this labyrinth of intertwining streets, churches, convents, palaces and little squares a World Heritage Site. As you take your first steps, you'll see the wonderful contrasts of this place. Take in the cityscape of grand pediments alongside washing drying out the windows and locals busying themselves with daily chores. This is a place where nobility and the every day families have always lived side by side. Follow paths dating back to the Greco-Roman era, enter large churches decorated with angels, you can marvel at the constant calling and chattering which is so typical of Neapolitan daily life. In the narrow street of Spaccanapoli (which divides Naples) lies the great Gothic Basilica of Santa Chiara (14th century), built on ancient Roman baths and which houses the tombs of the kings of the Two Sicilies. In Via San Gregorio Armeno, visit the workshops where the famous Neapolitan nativity scenes are made.


A boat tour around Capri

Marvel at this island in the bay of Naples, off the coast of Sorrento, on a private boat tour. Over the years, celebrities of all kinds have escaped to this island. On an enchanting tour of Capri, see the spectacular Via Krupp (1900-1902); the work of German steelmaker Friedrich Alfred Krupp (1854-1902); admire the Casa Malaparte; the real vedette of Jean-Luc Godard's Le Mépris (1963); and discover the Villa Jovis where the Roman emperor Tiberius once lived.
