Guided Walking Holidays - Exploring the Sorrento Peninsula The calm waters of the Bay of Naples reflect the cliffs like mirrored glass. Citrus groves and vineyards flourish in the fertile land, nourished by the ash of brooding Mount Vesuvius. The sea and the volcano have determined the history and defined the nature, cuisine and excellent wine of the region. For years, we’ve combined rambles on the Sorrento Peninsula and in the Lattari Mountains with visits to local world-class sites. At the foot of Mount Vesuvius are the sites of the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum which were destroyed by the eruption of AD 79. Both these sites vividly evoke the past. Sorrento, a holiday resort since Roman times, is easily€cessible by train from our base, Vico Equense. The Amalfi coast towns of Amalfi and Ravello and the elegant city of Salerno to the south of the peninsula also await exploration. Near to Salerno stand the magnificent Greek temples at Paestum with a world-class on-site archaeological museum. It is also possible to spend a free day in the animated and colourful city of Naples which is richly endowed with beautiful churches, palaces and museums, or alternatively, a trip to the romantic island of Capri is also popular and very easy. With so much to see and do, these holidays offer a busy week or fortnight. Alternate weeks follow a different itinerary to see everything on offer you need at least two weeks. All transport costs (we use both public and private hire transport) for the outlined programme are included in the holiday price. Entrance fees are not included to add flexibility to your holiday. The two week programme will include all of the above; the order of itinerary will depend on the travel date. Our Dec 2020 departure is a 10 night holiday, and a chance to see in Christmas and New Year in a spectacular setting.
