6 Days - Italian Escapes

Where you'll go..........

Day 1 - Rome

Welcome to Rome! Once known as the 'capital of the world' this richly historic, passionate and elegant city will steal our hearts as soon as we arrive. We'll meet and greet our Contiki crew at 4pm, before heading to a local restaurant for an included Italian feast. La perfezione! Staying in the Hotel St. Martin or similar. 

Day 2 - Naples

Rome

Today we're headed to another richly historical and cultural city, known for it's naturally beautiful sights and excellent cuisine.

Naples

Welcome to Naples, the rough and ready but oh so charming city which encapsulates everything we love about Italy. The home of pizza, a hub of culture, and a bundle of passionate Italian energy, this is also the site of Mt Vesuvius, the infamous active volcano. Today we have the option to check out the ruins of Pompeii, the fascinating Roman town that was destroyed by Vesuvius and then perfectly preserved in volcanic ash. Another option today is to take a tour, learning about the city, it's history and it's food culture. 

Day 3-4 - Amalfi

Naples

We're headed to the coast today to check out some of the most glamorous seascapes in Europe.

Amalfi

We'll visit two spectacular Amalfi jewels today. Positano will take our breath away, with its postcard pretty sun-bleached buildings tumbling down into the sparkling sea. Capri is no different, with its gorgeous cragged coastline and opulent cafes, it's easy to see why this is such a playground for the rich and famous. An optional Capri cruise will let us check out the iconic blue waters of the island, as well as stop for plenty of swim stops to beat the heat (summer only).

Amalfi

We've got a free day on the Amalfi coast! Lucky us. There are plenty of optionals today to keep us entertained, including a visit to a lemon farm where we learn how these huge, sunshine coloured fruits are harvested and turned into limoncello. We'll also get to have a Tastes of Amalfi dinner, washed down with the lemon liqueur itself.

Amalfi

We're headed back to Rome today. Time for the Colosseum?

Day 5-6 - Rome

We're headed back to Rome today. Time for the Colosseum?

Rome

Back in Rome we recommend taking our optional Emperors & Gladiators tour, where you'll skip the queues and enter the jaw-dropping Colosseum through the exclusive Emperor's gate. This is the perfect way to learn about this fascinating, blood-stained arena, in which Romans used to flock to watch epic battles between elephants, tigers, and gladiators. Then, we have a free night to check out the nightlife and toast what has been an unforgettable Italian adventure.

Hold our gelato. Our hearts are melting as we bid a final ‘Ciao’ to our Contiki crew after thirteen days we’ll never forget.
