Italy’s Amalfi Coast has been luring travelers, artists and romantics for centuries. Treat yourself to the region’s scenic splendor during a seven-night adventure based in Vietri sul Mare. We’ll encounter the magnificent coastline with its colorful villages and towering cliffs as we visit Ravello and Amalfi.

Then enjoy a nautical perspective of the region during a cruise to lovely Salerno. Discover the Isle of Capri, a celebrated resort since the time of the Roman Republic, and take a fascinating historical tour of Herculaneum and Pompeii, frozen in time by the mudflows of Mount Vesuvius.

Relax amid lemon-scented breezes in beautiful, cliffside Sorrento, see Paestum’s fascinating Greek ruins and explore the medieval streets and wonders of Old Naples, including the National Archaeological Museum. Plus, indulge in the region’s culinary heritage during an authentic pizza lunch. Along the way, delight in first-class accommodations, expert-led discussions, and an extensive meal plan featuring wine with dinner on this small-group adventure.
