Day 1

welcome to italy!!!

Expand Icon Contract Icon

Welcome to Italy! We’re starting in the Capital - Rome - because where would be better to start when you’re exploring the south of this incredible country? Hop off the plane and make your way into the centre of the buzzing city - if it’s your first time in Italy you’re in for a real treat! Spend the day exploring - check out the stunning Vatican City if you fancy ticking off two countries in one day! Now THAT would be an epic way to start the 8 days! Swat up on your Italian ready for the welcome meal this evening with the group! We’ll head over to the Trastevere neighbourhood which just might be the coolest, most colourful district in Rome! We LOVE it there so we can’t wait to show you around on your first evening - and grab a well-deserved Aperol too of course!

Day 2

let's explore rome...

Expand Icon Contract Icon

Today we are going to get our bearings in Rome and tick off some of the bucket list sights in the city! We’ll start with a walking tour because there’s no better way to explore than by foot! We’ll see the iconic Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain, the Piazza Venezia & the Pantheon - your cameras better be charged cause there's so many photo opportunities today. After a busy morning, we’ll head over to the main event…The Colosseum! Here we’ll have a tour and learn about the history and how they built such an amazing structure all those years ago. Our tickets will also include entrance to the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill which are definitely worth a visit but we won’t judge you if you want to find the closest place to have an ice-cold beer… After a busy day, tonight, we will have a chilled evening before grabbing some dinner!

1 X Breakfast
Rome Walking Tour, Colosseum Entry and Tour
Day 3

foodie heaven

Expand Icon Contract Icon

Are you ready for gooood food? Well, that’s great because we are headed to the food capital of the south! Our mouths are watering already. Once we arrive we’re headed straight for a local food walking tour! We’ll try some typical Neapolitan foods like Mozzarella, deep-fried pizza, pasta, babà, limoncello and more - get ready for a taste sensation like no other. We’ll spend the evening however you’d like, Naples has a great nightlife but if you fancy a chilled bar the city has plenty of those too - it’s your time - spend it how you’d like.

Day 4

discover pompeii's history

Expand Icon Contract Icon

We’re in for an amazing, historical day today! One of the must-visit spots in Italy is Pompeii which is where we are headed today. We are located perfectly so today’s journey to the site won’t take long! This ancient city *cue Cunk on Earth voice* on the outskirts of Naples was buried under metres of ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D and what remains is an amazing insight into the lives of those that once lived there. Luckily we will have the whole day to explore and learn about Pompeii - it’s a day you’ll never forget!

1 X Breakfast
Transports from Naples to Pompeii

Day 5

herculaneum and epic views of naples

Expand Icon Contract Icon

Now we have seen Pompeii it would be rude not to discover more about this period. Today we are hiking Mount Vesuvius - yeah baby! It’ll only take us about half an hour to climb up to the top and once we are at the top you’ll have great views over Naples and the stunning sea, endless photo opportunities and of course a cafe for some refreshments too. Then we are off to Herculaneum which is another site affected by the volcanic eruption. It is a lesser-known spot to visit but the preservation here is even more detailed and intimate making it a must-visit location before we travel down to the next spot…Sorrento!! Once we arrive we’ll have a wander around this incredible town overlooking the Bay of Naples, stop for a drink to watch the sunset and then head out for dinner.

1 X Breakfast
Climbing Mount Vesuvius, Guided visit to Herculaneum, Sorrento Orientation Walk

Day 6

path of the gods hike!

Expand Icon Contract Icon

The early bird catches the worm so we’re headed out early today to do the Path of the Gods Hike. The earlier the better for today's hike, it’ll be cooler and quieter (aka less chance of being photobombed!) The hike will take around 4 hours but we'll take our time and stop lots for photos and snacks along the way. There’ll be amazing views and even a cute little lemon slushy stop to keep us cool! At the end of the hike, we’ll arrive at Positano where we will relax, grab some lunch and explore a little bit before getting a bus back to Sorrento! It’s been a big day of exploring by foot so this will be a nice relaxing drive back! It’ll also be the perfect time to go through all your photos from the hike today and do a cheeky insta post.

1 X Breakfast
Positano & Sorrento
Path of the Gods hike and visiting Positano
Day 7

capri, aperols and epic views!

Expand Icon Contract Icon

It’s our final full day on tour - tears all around! Today’s another early start as we hop on the ferry in the morning which takes around an hour. Once we arrive in Capri we’ll be free to roam as we wish! To get up to the piazza and upper town we can walk, jump on board the funicular or catch a bus. We’ll all get the chairlift up to the highest point of the island to make the most of the incredible views and we’ll also explore the Giardini di Augusto, a beautiful botanical garden. It is the perfect way to spend our penultimate day. In the evening we’ll have our final dinner as a group whilst drinking Aperols and eating tiramisu as the sun goes down. What an incredible trip it has been.

What is the closest airport to the end destination?

Naples airport (NAP) is the closest airport to the end destination. From Sorrento, it’s easy to get a direct bus or a train to Naples airport. Your Travel Ninjas will be able to help book these locally.

There will be a few options to get back to Rome, which is the start location. These range from bus, train or plane travel!
