We enjoy a full day in the eternal city of Rome, starting with a 3 hour guided tour of the main sights, before some free time to explore at leisure. Visit the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain or just sit back, enjoy a glass of Prosecco and watch the world go by!

This morning, we visit the incredible Roman city of Pompeii, buried by volcanic ash in AD79.

In the afternoon, our journey continues with a spectacular drive along the Amalfi Coast. Known as one of the most spectacular drives in Europe, we will travel along the twisting and winding roads alongside picturesque villages and towns hugging the cliffs and coves.
