Itinerary:

Day 1: Rome – Sorrento
Leave central Rome in the morning, and journey south to sunny Naples. Travel through the city in the comfort of your coach to enjoy a panoramic overview of the downtown area. Gaze out over the Bay of Naples, and have your camera ready for two brief stops at Mergellina and Molo Beverllo to admire sights of the gulf and Mt Vesuvius.

Travel inland to Pompeii, and after lunch, visit the UNESCO-listed archaeological site with your guide. Hear how Pompeii lay buried under volcanic ash for centuries following Mt Vesuvius’ 79 BC eruption, and explore the impressive Roman ruins.
Return to your coach and travel to the Amalfi Coast, where you'll check in to your Sorrento hotel in time for dinner.

Day 2: Capri 
From November to March this tour does not visit Capri on Day 2.
The excursion is replaced with a day of free time in Sorrento.
Enjoy breakfast, and then travel from Sorrento port to the island of Capri by hydrofoil boat. Hop aboard a rowing boat at Capri’s Marina Grande harbor, and relax as your guide rows you around the island to see the magical Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra). This intriguing cave is said to have sunk dramatically since prehistoric times, blocking out most of its entrances.

Return to Marina Grande and travel by minibus to the village of Anacapri, perched high above the glamorous Capri Town. Explore at leisure, admiring its romantic wisteria-draped villas with sun-bleached stucco, and gaze down over the Bay of Naples.

Head back down the hill and visit one of Capri Town’s traditional trattorias for lunch. Walk it off on a stroll, passing through Capri’s swanky Piazetta (Piazza Umberto) — Capri’s place to see and be seen. Board another hydrofoil boat in the late afternoon and return to Sorrento in time for dinner.

After breakfast, spend the morning in Sorrento at your leisure. Perhaps take a stroll along Corso Italia and climb the steps to see atmospheric Piazza Tasso, tucked away in the heart of Sorrento Old Town. Soak up views of the cliffs, where Sorrento’s houses almost seem to be stacked on top of each other, and then shop for any last-minute souvenirs.

Meet your guide at the prearranged time, and then return to Rome by coach. Your tour finishes at your central Rome hotel in the evening.

  • This was a great easy paced tour that we thoroughly enjoyed. The hotel was fantastic, the history enlightening and the shopping and food in Capri was marvelous. Since the winds kept us from being able to go to the Blue Grotto, we were taken to Ana Capri instead. It was well worth it. And of course we bought the Capri watches. :-

  • We booked 4 trips with Viator when we went to Italy in August, 3 of the 4 were day trips which we gave all 5 stars review, and the fourth one was this three days trip to Naples, Pompeii, Sorrento, and Capri.

    Naples, Pompeii, and especially Capri tours were great. The local tour guides were professional and the transportation arrangements were on schedule. We had wonderful time.

    But once when we arrived in Sorrento, we were on our own. No introduction of the city, nor recommendation of where we should do or go in Sorrento. The lady came with the bus met us at Pompeii did recommend to contact her if we wanted to go to Amalfi Coast with additional charges. We were glad we didnt listen to her. We spent the third day walking around in Sorrento city center and found the fine sandals shops, gelato places, lemoncello, and cute souvenirs shops.

    Also one thing about the hotel in Sorrento. The bus dropped us off in front of Grand Hotel Vesuvio, and we were left there to check in to the hotel by ourselves. I dont know if that was normal or not since we usually planned our own travel and it was the first time we went with tour company.

    First room we were given was on the third floor. The room floor was covered with yellow dust like sand and the room was filled with unpleasant odor. There was no view other than a dirt giant wall blocked right in front of the back balcony. The worse part was there were lot of ants crawling on the floor. I was very disappointed since I was told this was a 4 stars hotel according to Viator. After I talked to the hotel front desk, the hotel switched us to a second room which was on the 5th floor. The room had odor too but at least the floor is cleaner and no ants.
    While I was ready to clean up the room a little by myself, the phone rang, the hotel manager called and offered us to a better room. The third room was a very nice clean one with great ocean view. Finally! We were pleased.

    P.S. the electricity on the entire floor in the hotel went out one night for about 10 minutes. We were glad we had flashlight on our phone.

  • This tour on the most part was amazing! A few problems with all the bus transfers but all the guides were wonderful . Lunch in Naples... bad ! Sorrento hotel had amazing views. Tour lunch in Capri was excellent followed by a chairlift to the top of the island !

  • The tour was all that they described- very comprehensive,professioal, on-time, informative...vehicles were top knock, guides were full of great information and pleasant- we kept on schedule and accomplished all that was promised. It was very well-run I would recommend.

  • The Sorrento and Amalfi portions of this trip were awesome and I would highly recommend. We stayed in an amazing hotel Michelangelo which was VERY nice, in a perfect location downtown and had some of the best food we had in Italy especially awesome since we were vegetarians!. However, the Naples portion of this was VERY unimpressive and a waste of time. What I would recommend is to do Pompeii and Vesuvius this tour did NOT include Vesuvius which is unfortunate since the hike up was a lot of fun, skip Naples and then get to Sorrento. So maybe do some sort of mix and match if possible? But don't miss out on the Amalfi and Blue Grotto part--one of the highlights of our trip!!

  • Tour guide Fabriano was phenomenal in Pompeii. Everything about Pompeii was amazing! Capri guide Sasha was awesome, he had to handle both the English and Spanish group - not sure what happened there and why we were put together..maybe a guide called in sick? Capri was gorgeous. Our main tour guide from Naples I can't remember his name, bald headed guy was awesome as well. All our guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. Blue Grotto happened to be closed when we went which was a bummer.

  • The tour was amazing!!! We saw so much in so little time. It was so much fun and informarative.
    Great, amazing, funny, patient, and helpful - very helpful- staff. Saw things and places I would never see alone. Was worth every penny.

  • This was a very well organised tour, with enough time to see everything you needed to see. We began in Rome with an early start. First stop Naples pretty dirty and not very nice but a good view of Vesuvius from a distance. Pompei tour by our little local tour guide was fabulous. Loved Pompei. On to Sorrento down very windy little streets to our hotel - The Michelangelo. Great room and in perfect location and the food that was included was lovely. Next day to Capri and Anacapri - did not get to do the Blue Grotto as tide too high. The hole to get into grotto very small and so it is more often than not, unable to get through. Boat tour instead was just spectacular. The harbour area is very busy. Took some time for buses to be organised but Sascha was AMAZING. Up to Capri which is stunning for coffee and shopping and then more buses up to Anacapri for lunch included which was the best pizza we have EVER HAD. You must make sure you leave time to do the cable car to the top of Anacapri for the 360 degree view, it was the most spectacular I have ever seen. It takes 12 minutes up and 12 minutes back and only costs 11 E each. Worth every cent. Buses were a problem and the waiting for them was a bit annoying but they work on Capri time! Ferry back to Sorrento and dinner at hotel included and it was a fabulous day. Next morning was free time. Sorrento has so much to offer or you could also get to Positano just around the corner, then back on buses to Naples and change buses for more bus ride back to Rome. Got back to Rome quite late in the evening so a long afternoon/evening of travel. It is worth every cent for this tour though, as it would have been difficult to get around and into things without a tour guide to make things run smoothly. I would highly recommend this tour. Loved, loved, loved this area of Italy.

  • This trip was amazing! I took my mom to Europe and we booked this tour to make life easier and it was wonderful! Pompeii was very cool with interesting history. Sorrento and Capri were beautiful! The hotel in Sorrento was incredible. I think we got really lucky to get such a nice view of Mount. Vesuvius from our balcony! Don't go on this trip expecting to go to the Blue Grotto in Capri because it depends on the tides since the opening to the cave is so small, you have to get on a small row boat to enter the cave. My mom and I were lucky to get to see the Blue Grotto and it was beautiful! The Southern coastline of Italy is gorgeous! We definitely want to go again!

  • Location was fantastic, but the organization of the trip was a disaster. Multiple bus switches, multilingual interpretations were distracting and time consuming. The quick stop in Naples to take one picture is pointless, spent more time at the rest stop.... the stop in Pompeii in the pouring rain could have been handled better. The stay in Sorrento was okay, nice hotel, nice central location to go to downtown Sorrento which was very nice, but the day trip to Capri was too short and too rushed. Spent more time running to Ferries and waiting around for car/bus service then actually seeing anything. Had the time been explained better we would have skipped the group lunch, that wasn't very good, and enjoyed the island more. If your heart is set on seeing Capri- this is not the tour to take! This should be called the Sorrento tour...and I suggest exploring the downtown and the wonderful restaurants there versus the included low-quality hotel meals.
