Trip Highlights
 

Travel through Italy and let yourself be seduced by the colors and aromas of a land blessed by the most spectacular scenery, a country so rich in history, art and music, that few can resist the temptation to return again and again.

Savor every piazza, street and alleyway, and breathe in the history of Rome’s glorious past. Stroll through the old quarters of Testuccio and Trastevere, where you can savor the warmth of the people and the real, authentic soul of the eternal city. 

Visit the valley of the Roman Forum and take a peek inside of the Senate and the Basilica of Constantine. Walk the Via Sacra to the Arch of Tito and enjoy the Colosseum in all of its breathtaking glory. Then head to the Basilica of St. Peter in Chains to and the Moses carved by Michelangelo!

In Naples, be transported into the past with its regal architecture and gastronomic delicacies that should be experienced at least once in a lifetime. How could we resist?

In Ravello, explore this enchanting hillside village with stupendous views, quiet lanes and two irresistibly romantic gardens, that of Villa Rufolo, where medieval ruins frame spectacular vistas, and Villa Cimbrione, a once private estate, with spectacular views of the entire Bay of Salerno.  

Along the Amalfi Coast, the dreamy perfection of Positano, Ravello and Sorrento beckon, and between gastronomic adventures there will be time for sightseeing in such historic locations as Pompeii and Paestum. Not only that, your stay on the Isle of Capri will be every bit as magical as the songs written about it imply. Upon arrival at the port in Capri, be whisked away to explore the island in your very own Capri Car and driver.

 
Culinary Highlights
 
Fresh mozzarella di bufala, irresistible seafood, Massa Lubrense lemons, limoncello, exceptional artisan olive oils, figs, peaches, exquisite Neapolitan coffees and pastries, courgette flowers (in the spring itinerary), impeccable dried pastas, delectable honeys and nuts and possibly some of the best hand-made chocolates we have yet to discover.

Feast on the exuberant menus crafted and executed by some of Italy's most talented chefs. Bask in the ambience of rustic Roman trattorias and taste for yourself the poetic simplicity and skill that each dish embodies, only the finest ingredients can produce such perfect harmony on the palette.

Enjoy an unforgettable dining experience at Don Alfonso 1890, arguably an experience that you will not soon forget.

In Capri, sip on late-afternoon cocktails overlooking the majestic Faraglioni rocks and watch the world pass you by. There is no one to rush you here.
