About this Trip

Discover the best of Italy on this journey along the Amalfi Coast. Begin in Rome, where you’ll tour the Vatican and the ancient world. Continue to Naples and Pompeii to explore Neapolitan culture and the tragedy of Mt. Vesuvius. End your vacation with a leisurely stay in Amalfi, a gorgeous village along the famous coastline.

This 8-day Italian vacation takes you along the Amalfi Coast, travelling from Rome to Naples and the village of Amalfi.

Your trip to Italy begins in Rome, the nation’s capital and the heart of the ancient Roman Empire. You’ll quickly be dazzled by the wonders of the Eternal City. On your first day, take advantage of the Hop-On Hop-Off bus tour to explore landmarks like the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, and the Colosseum in between meals of incredible Italian cooking. Spend the next day exploring the Vatican Museums, beating the crowds with an early entrance pass. Skip the line and explore the galleries of the museum, including the marvellous Raphael Rooms, before reaching the Sistine Chapel, where you can gaze upon Michelangelo’s heavenly frescoes. Continue to St. Peter’s Basilica to see the Pieta and experience the overwhelming grandeur of the world’s largest church.

 

From Rome, head south and reach Naples, the treasure of the Amalfi Coast and the birthplace of Neapolitan culture. Take a walking tour of the old town to see landmarks like the Piazza del Plebiscito and the Royal Palace before trying out some unforgettable Neapolitan dishes.

 

Hint: try the pizza, as there’s no better place to have this famous dish than in the city that invented it. Continue from Naples to nearby Pompeii to explore an ancient city that was engulfed by volcanic ash during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. That evening, continue to Amalfi.
