Enjoy precious landscapes of this region, seen from the land and from the sea
Arrival at the Hotel Excelsior Vittoria in Sorrento. Perched atop the cliffs, commanding a spectacular view of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius, you can spend the afternoon relaxing in the lush private Mediterranean gardens that surround the property, dive into the splendid pool, or indulge yourself at their luxurious spa. Built over 100 years ago, this spectacular hotel evokes the atmosphere of a gracious private home and is said to have been built where Roman Emperor Augustus's villa once stood. That evening you will dine at the hotel's elegant restaurant where you will enjoy a variety of local delicacies and wines from the region and an exquisite combination of Neapolitan gastronomic delights.
After breakfast, your personal driver will be waiting to take you to the historical ancient city of Pompei, a Roman port town that was buried beneath the ashes of one of the biggest volcanic eruptions of all time in AD 79. Met by your private guide at the entrance to the preserved city, you will have the opportunity to explore the ruins of this ancient Roman Empire before breaking for lunch at a restaurant specially selected in a location rich in history. Here you will have the chance to enjoy dishes lovingly prepared with an abundance of local ingredients created by an experienced restaurateur. Later you will travel to the famous Mount Vesuvius, which dominates the gulf of Naples and has always been closely bound to Neapolitan daily life and the surrounding areas. Having journeyed to the top, you will have the opportunity to visit the crater of this monstrous beast; a truly unique and fascinating experience that transports you closer to the natural elements of the earth. Later that afternoon your driver will return you to your hotel in Sorrento, where a sumptuous meal will await, followed by a relaxing evening.
Today provides you with the perfect opportunity to enjoy the splendid sea surrounding the strip of land that is La Sorrentina Penisola, and discover the secrets of the Island of Capri with a special tour that will take place on your very own private boat. Following breakfast you will be met by your personal tour guide in the hotel, and travel by private car to the port where you will depart for Capri. The boat journey takes approximately 30 minutes and affords excellent views of the beautiful Sorrento coast. Arriving at Capri's western coast, your boat tour will begin with visits to the Grotta Bianca, L'Arco Naturale and the Faraglioni. Next, you will arrive at the Grotta del Marinaio where, if you want, you can have the opportunity to swim and snorkel in the clear blue waters. Afterward, you will continue on toward Marina Piccola where you will disembark and enjoy a tour of the island, visit the interior of the island and lunch in one of the many local restaurants that the island offers.
Later, you will depart by boat to visit the Grotta Verde and the famous Grotta Azzurra: this landmark can only be reached by rowboat and is a truly breathtaking experience. Please note: entrance into the Grotta is subject to excellent weather conditions. Your return to Sorrento is planned for 5:00 pm; you will be met by your personal driver at the port who will accompany you back to your hotel, where you will have plenty of time to relax before dinner is served in the hotel.
