Short Description

Rome, Sorrento, and Capri—three of Italy’s most popular cities are waiting for you on this grand Italy vacation. Spend four nights in Rome and two nights each in Capri and on the Neapolitan Riviera on this affordable Italy tour at a leisurely pace, featuring ancient historic sites, spectacular scenery, and authentic Mediterranean charm. Discover Sicily, a legendary island of breathtaking beauty, rich in history and culture.

History buffs will love the views of Rome’s Colosseum where gladiators fought to the death during the Roman Empire. Enjoy a guided tour of Pompeii, which was completely buried during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. This preserved town gives you an amazingly detailed look into ordinary life 2,000 years ago at the peak of the Roman Empire. In Sicily, visit the Valley of the Temples to see remains from ancient Greek civilization, as well as the famous mosaic depicting the “bikini girls” in the Roman villa at Piazza Armerina.

There is no shortage of spectacular scenery throughout your affordable tour of Italy. Discover the heights of Mount Etna – Europe’s most active live volcano. You’ll witness breathtakingly beautiful views on your excursion to the Amalfitan Coast.

Following the natural course of the Amalfi coastline, the winding road features coastal mountains plunging into the sea, dramatic cliffs, inlets, and bays interspersed with picturesque towns—all with the deep-blue water for scenery that is nothing short of spectacular! In Sicily, you will take a scenic cable car to charming Erice, a fortified town overlooking Trapani and the Egadi archipelago.

Enjoy visits of the laid-back town of Sorrento and the charming island of Capri. Both offer breathtaking views of the crystal-clear, blue sea. Spend time gazing at the mesmerizing water, enjoy the marvelous Mediterranean climate, wander the maze of streets, shop at the boutiques, and sip a drink in the famous “piazzetta.”The majestic St. Peter’s square in Rome, the sapphire-blue waters of the strait of Messina, the lush orange groves on the flanks of Mount Etna, and the friendly smiles of the local people will create lasting, fond memories. You’ll cherish this unique Italy vacation designed for the value-minded traveler.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
