This is an amazing beach weekend in Italy’s most famous resort area with lots of time for swimming, boat cruises with cliff jumping, Italy’s best pizza and limoncello!

Itinerary

Thursday - Day 1  Depart Florence/Rome for late evening arrival to Sorrento and check-in to your room.

*Fly-in package arrival on your own with check in from 3pm available (you will be sent exact instructions on how to arrive).

Friday - Day 2  Afer breakfast, we will take a bus (included) to the breathtaking city of Positano driving along the remarkable Amalfi Coast road. This beautiful city built into the cliffs of the coast is the perfect place to relax on the beach, swim, shop, and try some of Italy's finest seafood. Upon arrival to the beach, the Euroadventures leader will take you to Positano’s best panini shop and deli, and later will organize an optional boat cruise along the Positano coastline with stops for swimming and even cliff jumping! Approx. 4:30pm departure from Positano back to Sorrento to enjoy the rest of your afternoon and evening or get ready for the night. Friday night optional southern Italian group dinner offered with pizza, pasta and wine included. Following dinner, the Euroadventures leader will take those that want to join to our favorite outdoor bar in Sorrento for some dancing under the stars, and drink specials for Euroadventures customers! 

Saturday - Day 3  We’ll have an early morning departure to take the 25min. ferry over to the island of Capri (included). For those up for it, we will be leading a hike to the very top of Capri for some magnificent views over the enJre island and Bay of Naples (about 2.5 hours round trip so make sure to have good shoes - there is a gondola to the top as well for those who want the views but not the hike). For those who do not want to do the hike the leader will take you to Capri Town where you can explore its shopping, famous gardens, or just soak up the sun on the beach. Once the leader is back from the hike we will take you to Capri’s best panini shop for the world’s best “Caprese” sandwich, followed by an opJonal several hour boat cruise around the island where you can swim, BYOB, and see the famous Blue GroFo - one of the 7 natural wonders of the world! Saturday night is a free night to relax, or have another night on the town. We recommend heading to Piazza Tasso, the main square in Sorrento where the city comes alive with its many restaurants, bars and cafes to experience a southern Italian Saturday night. 

Sunday - Day 4  Morning check out and departure to Pompeii for several hour visit and time for lunch. Afernoon departure to Florence/Rome.

*Fly-In package departure on your own.
