Hail Caesar! Today you’ll enter the Coliseum, reliving the brutal entertainment of the gladiators and the lions, refereed by the Emperor himself. A tour of the Roman Forum is also included. The center of life in Rome was the site of triumphal processions; public speeches, criminal trials, and commercial affairs. Statues and monuments commemorated the city's great men. Free time for lunch. In the afternoon enjoy an Espresso & Gelato tour in Rome city center. Nice walking in the central area will allow you to burn some calories and enjoy the beauty of the city involving all senses. This 2 hours and a half tour will show you a country crazy about coffee. Visit both popular and elegant bars and coffee shops and discover the secrets of Italian gelato, the favorite Italian dessert. (B)

 

With your expert local guide, you’ll enter the Vatican Museums earlier than the regular opening time! You will admire - in the quietest way possible - a massive collection of ancient Greek sculptures, medieval tapestries and Renaissance paintings. Our visit culminates in the Sistine Chapel, the room where the Pope is elected. Next, you will visit St. Peter's Basilica, by far the largest church in Christendom and admire Michelangelo's Pieta, sculpted when he was just 24 years old, as well as Bernini's seven-story bronze canopy located above the main altar. This afternoon is yours to explore and shop in Rome. (B)

 

This morning, travel to Pompeii, approaching the view of the Bay of Naples on the way, a city perfectly preserved as it was on that fateful day 2,000 years ago, when ash and lava literally stopped it in its tracks. You’ll travel back in time to the fateful year of 79 AD. A city perfectly preserved by the ash that rained-down from Mt. Vesuvius, you’ll see the tragic fossils of people attempting to escape with their children and dogs. You’ll be amazed to see the streets, homes and stores still perfectly intact. Then proceed towards your Sorrento Hotel. (B)

 

Depart to explore Capri, the magical and colorful island, a favorite resort destination since the time of the Roman Republic. Enjoy a tour of the Island: start with the lovely Anacapri and explore the charming shops and chic boutiques in the narrow streets. Continue to see "La Piazzetta," the social heart of the island, on your way to the open-air Gardens of Augustus to appreciate breath-taking views of the famous Faraglioni rocks. Weather permitting, you will have the possibility to take a boat ride to visit the amazing Blue Grotto. Lunch at a special restaurant is included today! Return to Sorrento and overnight. (B, L)

After breakfast depart for Amalfi Coast. Enjoy panoramic views of the enchanting towns along the scenic Amalfi Coast. Stop at Positano for the stunning view of the town. Then, follow the legendary road overlooking the Mediterranean, to reach the coastal town of Amalfi. Enjoy an orientation tour of the cities, exploring the steep streets, narrow alleyways, sidewalk vendor stalls and boardwalk cafes. Farewell dinner at Hotel or local restaurant within walking distance. (B, D)
