Join us on this sun–soaked holiday discovering the splendours of the Amalfi Coast. A little taste of romantic southern Italy with a choice of half board hotels and three included excursions.

You'll be staying in the lovely town of Maiori with its kilometre–long, sand–and–shingle beach, located just south of the Sorrentine peninsula, overlooking the Tyrrhenian Sea. Along the seafront and in the town is a good selection of shops, cafes and restaurants, and there is a wide variety of watersports on offer from the beach. Maiori was once a great maritime power, and links to its medieval heyday still remain in the original 9th–century fortification of Castello di San Nicola de Thoro Plano (re–built in the 16th century) and the Santa Maria de Olearia monastery, 5 minutes' drive away, where the elaborate frescoes are well worth a look. The Italian 'big 3' towns of Amalfi, Positano and Ravello are all within a 30–minute bus ride; indeed you will visit both Amalfi and Positano on your included excursions, as well as spending some time in Sorrento and taking a look at the Roman excavations at Herculaneum.

Saturday Check in at the airport for your flight to Naples. On arrival, you will be met and transferred to your hotel in Maiori by coach. Please note that there is a 3 to 4–minute walk from Naples airport building to the coach park. Once at the hotel, the rest of the day and evening is free to get settled in and enjoy dinner. Later flights may arrive at the hotel after dinner service, and will be offered a cold platter instead.

Sunday After breakfast there will be a Welcome meeting at the hotel where our representative will tell you about the local area and assist you in booking any additional excursions you may wish to take. The day is then free until the evening, when you will be transported to Amalfi for an included 2–hour guided evening walk, then returned back to the hotel afterwards.

Monday A free day at leisure.

Tuesday Today's treat is a fabulous full–day tour combining a drive along the Amalfi coast (one of the world's most picturesque routes) with a visit to the Roman excavations at Herculaneum and time in Sorrento. We set off in the morning and drive first to Herculaneum, a residential town buried in ashes by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D., and still being excavated today. Then we head for Sorrento where you can find a nice place for lunch and still have time to explore the ancient, narrow lanes of the old town and see some of Sorrento's most famous architectural gems, including the 14th–century Cloister of San Francesco. A visit to an inlaid wood–work shop is also included, a craft typical of the Sorrento area. On leaving Sorrento the drive back to Maiori takes you along the Amalfi coastline through cliff–side villages, with a photo–stop at the famous Belvedere in Positano for breathtaking views over the coastline and sea. The excursion arrives back in Maiori in the late afternoon.

Wednesday A free day at leisure.

Thursday A free morning, then you can see the Amalfi coastline from a different perspective - from the sea! Join the cruise at 2pm from Maiori pier, then the first port of call along the coast is the Emerald Grotto, where you take an optional look inside at the beautiful rock formations, weather permitting*. The cruise then continues along the coast, passing Conca dei Marini, an enchanting little town with cottages on the beach and clinging to the cliffs, then on to the Furore Fjord, a narrow gorge cutting inland from the sea, where the captain will show his skill as he manoeuvres the vessel in and out of the fjord. On the final part of the journey you will pass the privately–owned Li Galla island (most famous owner, Rudolf Nureyev) before disembarking in Positano. You will have about 1 ½ hours' free time to explore Positano before making the return journey to Maiori, arriving back at the pier at about 6pm.

*Extra charge to visit the Emerald Grotto – €5 per person. The visit involves a transfer to a smaller boat.

Friday A free day at leisure.

Saturday Breakfast first, then at the appropriate time you will unfortunately have to say 'arrivederci' to Maiori as we transfer you to Naples airport for your flight home.
