Short Description

Lemon trees and vineyards cascade down the terraced cliffs to the sea. Soft sea breezes mix with the scent of fresh basil, tomatoes and olive oil. Capri sparkles in the distance. Welcome to Amalfi! This is a no-holds-barred invitation to live life to the fullest.

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Hail Caesar! All aboard our chariot for a panoramic tour of Imperial Rome including the Roman Forum, Largo Argentina (where Caesar was stabbed by Brutus), the Jewish Ghetto and the Circus Maximus.

Then we’ll enter the Colosseum, reliving the brutal entertainment of the gladiators and the lions, refereed by the Emperor himself.

Tonight we thought you’d enjoy a dinner on your own. Ask your tour guide for a recommendation, or simply relax and enjoy your hotel restaurant.

 

Day 4 (Monday) - Rome, Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Basilica*, Dinner Out Tonight

This morning, it’s a 5-minute drive to another country – Vatican City! With our expert local guide, we’ll tour the Vatican Museums, a treasure trove of ancient Greek sculptures, medieval tapestries and Renaissance paintings. Our visit culminates in the Sistine Chapel, the room where the Pope is elected.

Next we visit St. Peter’s Basilica*, by far the largest church in Christendom. We’ll see Michelangelo’s Pieta, sculpted when he was just 24, as well as Bernini’s seven-story bronze canopy located above the main altar.

Tonight, please be our guest at a fine Roman restaurant with flowing wines and great friends! BB, D

* Please note that the visit of St. Peter’s Basilica is subject to availability based on the events planned for the Jubilee 2016.nner Out Tonight

 

Day 5 (Tuesday) - Rome, Pompeii, Amalfi, Dinner in Hotel

This morning we drive to Amalfi, one of the most famous coastlines on earth.

Along the way, we’ll stop in Pompeii! Imagine, a city perfectly preserved as it was on that fateful day 2,000 years ago, when ash and lava literally stopped it in its tracks. You’ll see the tragic fossils of people attempting to escape along with children and dogs.

Next we’ll settle into our home in Amalfi at the historic Hotel Luna Convento. She’s a 12th century convent converted into a charming first class hotel overlooking the sea.

Tonight, dinner at our hotel with great local wines.

 

Day 6 (Wednesday) - Isle of Capri - Lunch – Amalfi

Amalfi at our stern, Capri at our bow, this morning we sail to one of the world’s most enchanting islands. If weather permits, we’ll visit the Blue Grotto, famed for its translucent aqua-blue light. We’ll also tour the island followed by a well -deserved lunch with wine.

Later this afternoon, we’ll sail back to Amalfi. Enjoy the night on your own - there are so many wonderful restaurants to choose from!

 

Day 7 (Thursday) - Amalfi - Sail to Positano - Lunch in Sorrento – Amalfi

What better way to visit the splendid towns of the Amalfi Coast than by sea!  

Today we’ll sail from Amalfi to Positano. (In case of bad weather, we’ll use our bus.) There will be time to explore this picture-postcard village set on a cliff dropping into the blue Mediterranean. 

 

From Positano, we sail to Sorrento, another gem in the Gulf of Naples with great views of the mighty volcano, Mt. Vesuvius. In Sorrento, we’ll enjoy lunch featuring the fresh specialties of the Campania region. 

We’ll drive back to Amalfi for your free night in this Mediterranean paradise. BB, L 

 

Day 8 (Friday) - Ravello Wine Tasting – Amalfi

After a relaxing morning we’ll take the short, twisty ride up the mountain to charming Ravello. The town’s beauty is so inspiring that it’s attracted world-famous composers, writers and artists for centuries.

We’ll visit the beautiful Villa Rufolo. The composer, Richard Wagner, fell in love this this place and annual concerts of his music take place here. 

Next, we’ll enjoy a wine tasting with the best Amalfi Coast wines and the famous LIMONCELLO liqueur. It goes down easily…but it’s also quite strong! Salute! 

Enjoy the final night of your tour with your new friends. Why not gather a few of your friends and go out for a pizza? After all – it was invented in this area.

No on-site management. The staff has no supervision.
Hotel is moldering and crumbling. Serious personal safety issues of several kinds. Doors are left unlocked all night, my room door bolt was broken.
I had some very unsettling experiences in a hotel and Perillo tried to ignore me and make me go away.
Extremely inept, defensive, inexperienced and unprofessional staff.

Perillo uses hotel in Amalfi where there is no on site management. Lots of bad things happened to me there. Staff is rude, ancient hotel is crumbling and clearly in financial trouble. Perrillo has no competent professional service and won’t address serious issues they are responsible for.

Just returned from my 2 week classic north tour. It was a wonderful trip and our tour guide,
Sandra, was fabulous and so knowledgeable. She was on the ball even when more than half of our group came down with the flu.

Also had Raffael and he was the BEST tour guide I've ever had. Trip was a masterpiece of experiences and logistical planning. Plus, for the first time in many trips to Italy, in addition to the art and architecture which I love, I began to get a real understanding of the artisan crafts that are the proud work of the people and their small companies of Italy in today's world- parmesan reggiano cheese making, prosciutto farm companies, gelato making. True about the shoes - take good sturdy walking shoes.
