A break to the city and the stunning Amalfi Coast
The majestic city of Rome and the Amalfi Coast is a fabulous combination for anyone wanting to experience two very different but complimentary parts of Italy. The juxtaposition of ancient and new as one shaped the other provides a backdrop to one of the greatest city breaks in Europe. The history of Rome is ever present across the city so two full days here allow you to visit the main sights as well as enjoy a sample of some superb cuisine. Of course, we can tailor make any trip duration and include the key sightseeing highlights. After time in the city some well deserved rest and relaxation on the Amalfi Coast will be welcome where even people watching is a pastime!
Fly to Rome Fiumicino Airport where a private transfer will be waiting to take you to the centrally located Palazzo Montemartini. Three nights at this five star property will allow time to explore this majestic city – ancient Rome and the city centre are easily accessible by foot and Vatican City is a short taxi ride away. Why not hire a guide to take you into the depths of history in this fascinating city? We would highly recommend a private tour of the Vatican and for families, a child friendly tour of the Colosseum will really make this ancient monument come alive.
Take a taxi transfer to Rome Termini station for a leisurely rail journey through the Italian countryside to Naples and the doorstep of the Amalfi Coast. After a short two hour drive you will arrive in the pretty seaside town of Positano, clutching to the cliffside with stunning views of the Tyrrhenian Sea. You could even visit the ancient city of Pompeii on the way and learn more about the devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD which buried the city under a mountain of ash. At the top of the town of Positano is the beautiful, family run Villa Franca. A stunning retreat from where you can survey the busy town and the shimmering sea below. The restaurant is quite a treat too! Four nights here will allow you to explore the area at a leisurely pace.
After a leisurely breakfast take your transfer back to Naples Airport and your flight home
