Best of the Bay of Naples

With this day-long tour of the Bay of Naples you will experience this vast area by various means of transportation with the use of a ferry, minibus and funicular railway.

Your small, intimate, semi-private group tour will start as you board a ferry directly at the port of Naples to take you across the bay to the famed, small island of Capri, a popular coastal resort town and home to the infamous Blue Grotto sea cavern.

Upon arrival to this sparkling jewel you will take the funicular railway up and into the island's center to experience its cafes, upscale hotels and designer shops up close and personal.

When the time has come to depart Capri, it's back on the ferry for a scenic and picturesque ride to Sorrento along the Amalfi Coast, with hotel-topped cliffs, small antique shops, and beautiful architecture at every turn.

Once in Sorrento, take some time to stroll from one end of this captivating town to the other, or ride the lift for spectacular overviews of the island and the surrounding coastal area.

Your journey of exploration continues as you leave Sorrento behind and board a minibus to drive to Pompeii for a guided tour of the ruins. This ancient Roman city was one of many towns that was destroyed when the then 800-year old dormant Mt. Vesuvius volcano erupted in 79 A.D. The resultant volcanic ash and pumice buried Pompeii under material 13 to 20-feet deep, preserving the city and its people.

Take a guided tour of these fascinating ruins and step back in time to a day that has stood still for so many years. Gain an accurate glimpse into what life was like in the Roman Empire 2,000 years ago when Pompeii was a thriving and quite sophisticated city. This archaeological site features the excavated ruins of alleyways and homes where you are free to explore and yet continues to unearth the remains of a people and place locked in time today.

This very popular tour sells out fast as there is limited space, book now for an exciting day in the Bay of Naples that you will be sure to remember for years to come.
