Sorrento ~ The Charm of the Amalfi Coast
September 30 - October 8
Italy’s Amalfi Coast has been luring travelers, artists and romantics for centuries. Treat yourself to the region’s scenic splendor during a seven-night adventure based in cliff-side Sorrento, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Stroll flower-filled alleyways in the vertical village of Positano, and enjoy a nautical perspective during a cruise to the lovely town of Amalfi. Witness life as it was in A.D. 79 on a tour of Herculaneum and Pompeii, frozen in time by the ash and mudflows of Mount Vesuvius. See Paestum’s fascinating Greek ruins and explore the medieval streets of Old Naples, including majestic churches, panoramic views, and the National Archaeological Museum. Relish the region’s culinary heritage with an authentic Neapolitan pizza lunch, and visit a family-owned farm to taste local olive oils and cheeses. Enjoy first-class accommodations, expert-led discussions, and an extensive meal plan featuring wine with dinner on this small-group adventure.
