Amalfi Coast


 

The region of coastline stretching from Sorrento, South of Naples, to Amalfi, so called Amalfi Coast is a UNESCO world heritage site that is renowned for its natural beauty as well as its characteristic towns. You’ll find houses and buildings painted in fresh pastels, stuck into cliffs and canyons … the flowery spectacle set in the cliffs framed by the endless blue sky and sparkling water.

The crystal clear ocean waters and breathtaking landscapes are offset by the famous towns of Sorrento, Praiano, Positano, Ravello, and Amalfi, whose charming architecture elegantly blends into the mountainous landscape. The Island of Capri is a favorite destination for celebrities and is known for its sheer cliffs, amazing grottos and crystal blue water.

The Island if Ischia is located above an ancient submerged volcanic crater and is rich in thermal water, making it a great source for natural spas and thermal baths. Of historical and archaeological interest are the ancient towns of Pompeii and Ercolano, preserved for all time by the cataclysmic volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. Major attractions: Pompeii and Ercolano archeological sites, Sorrento, Positano, Capri, Ischia and smaller towns along the Amalfi Coast, the archeological site of Paestum by buffalo mozzarella farms, and the town of Castellabbate along the Cilento Coast south of Salerno. Major theaters and music events: Teatro San Carlo in Naples, Ravello Festival in Ravello.

Rome


 

Rome is known as the 'Eternal City', the centre of Western Civilization and one of the most widely visited cities in the world.  It is a city of contrasts, both ancient and modern. Romantic and harsh. It is a place of beautiful warm light and many dark corners. 
 
The layers of history in Rome are second to none in the world and to appreciate Rome, in all its glory, it is useful and helpful to have some understanding of what happened here over the centuries.  Whether you do tours with us or another company, it is most helpful to read - do guided tours - watch films.  
 
This city is one of the most important cultural, artistic and intellectual centres in Europe.  It is also home to Vatican City, the centre of the Catholic Church.
 
The history of Rome and Vatican City draw over 58 million visitors each year, almost as many people who live in Italy.  
 
 

 

Sorrento


 

It is still not certain exactly when the town was founded, but Sorrento was, without doubt, already a strategic commercial town for both the Greeks and the Etruscans. Today, Sorrento is a tourist destination of international repute, made all the more popular by a series of ancient traditions including the production of wine, gastronomic products and fine craftsmanship.

Oranges, lemons, walnuts, and olives are all grown on the territory Sorrento and a great variety of cheeses are produced here. The town is famous for its wood engraving and lace work, a tradition that dates back to the seventeenth century. Local jewellers make exquisite coral necklaces in various styles and dimensions. All these goods can be found in the little shops tucked away in the alleyways of Sorrento.
 
Sorrento boasts a number of important religious sites such as the archbishopric, the Basilica of Sant'Antonio, the Church of St. Maria del Carmine, the Church of San Francesco d'Assisi, Sorrento Cathedral, and the Monastery of St. Maria delle Grazie. Also well worth visiting are the Correale Museum of Terranova, the Sedile Dominova and the Via della Pietà.

Capri


 

Emperors and sovereigns, sheiks and noblewomen, novelists and divas, painters and poets. All seduced by this magical island, by its infinite beauty and by its fascinating history.

Rising up out of the sea just off the far end of the Sorrentine peninsula, the island of Capri has long been the Bay of Naples' most desirable, and glamorous destination. Preferred playground of the rich and famous since Roman times, Augustus found Capri's enchanting landscape the perfect antidote to the stresses of office; Tiberius even moved the imperial capital here, and transformed the island in magnificent theatre for his infamous "royal" revelries. In the early 1900's the island's name became synonymous with the moneyed and artistic elite who began to arrive on Capri’s shores. This was the time when, on the coast of Anacapri, the Grotta Azzurra was "discovered", adding yet another attraction to the island's long list of stunningly beautiful sites.

 
Grand Hotel Excelsior offers a swimming pool, free parking, and a free shuttle to its private beach and to Amalfi centre. Each room has a private balcony with views of the sea.

The Grand Hotel Vesuvio, built and furnished in a modern style, is located in a charming position, overlooking the enchanting Bay of Naples and right opposite Vesuvius. The hotel offers large swimming pools with separate section for children, beautiful gardens with extensive lemon and orange groves, wide lounges and a beautiful restaurant and bar with gorgeous terraces overlooking the Mediterranean sea.
