Holiday overview

This luxury getaway showcases the best of Capri, Amalfi and Sorrento with stays in a trio of world-class hotels, ranging from palaces with Michelin stars to historic convents perched right on the coast. You’ll link it all with catamaran trips and the services of private drivers, beginning with Capri’s island idyll before hopping back to the sun-blessed plazas and cobblestone streets of Sorrento. A spectacular clifftop chauffeur drive will then see you end in Amalfi – a postcard-perfect jumble of multicoloured beauty.

Holiday itinerary

Day 1: UK/Capri

Begin with complimentary airport lounge access before your flight to Naples where, on arrival, you’ll transfer to the city to board a hydrofoil or catamaran to the island of Capri. For centuries, its combination of natural beauty and hedonistic appeal have charmed the great and good of Europe, with visits from the emperors of Athens and Rome remembered in colossal sculptures and ancient villa ruins. While the Hotel Regina's mix of beach and town is delightful, we recommend opting for our Deluxe option, the Capri Palace Hotel & Spa. It's host to a private beach, two-Michelin-star restaurant and rooms replete with canopy beds and tile-and-marble bathrooms.

Stay: Hotel Regina Cristina (Superior) or Capri Palace Hotel & Spa (Deluxe)

Days 2-3: Capri

With everything from beach relaxation to pretty hikes, you’ll have these days free to explore and relax. Capri's premier attraction is perhaps the Grotta Azzurra, a stunning sea cave illuminated by an otherworldly blue light, imparted by a gleam of sunshine. The best way to visit is to take a boat from Marina Grande. Other popular activities include strolling through the gardens of Villa San Michele, built among Roman ruins, and taking the chairlift up Capri's highest peak, Monte Solaro. On a clear day the views from the top take in the whole of the Bay of Naples and the Amalfi Coast.

Stay: Hotel Regina Cristina (Superior) or Capri Palace Hotel & Spa (Deluxe)

Days 4-6: Sorrento

Retrace your bow wake back across the water to Sorrento where a private transfer will see you to your luxury clifftop accommodation overlooking the Bay of Naples. The Excelsior is particularly impressive, its ornate grandeur dating back to the early 20th century. Spend your time walking beach-lined coastal routes or wandering the town’s historic laneways, taking in pretty piazzas, welcoming seafood restaurants and the beautifully gilded cathedral. You’ll also be perfectly poised to explore one of the world’s most impressive archaeological sites – Pompeii. It’s a whole Roman town, immaculately preserved across its ghostly streets, villas and baths.

Day 7: Sorrento/Amalfi

The drive down the coast from Sorrento to Amalfi is one of the most arresting in Italy and you'll experience it in style, with the full-day services of a private driver. The 'Blue Ribbon Road' wends its way past picture-postcard towns, snaking around impossibly tight curves, over deep ravines and through tunnels gouged out of solid rock. Before you arrive into Amalfi, you'll also have time to stop in Positano – where pastel-coloured houses tumble towards the beach – and Ravello, whose garden-lined clifftop perch is the stunning backdrop to a storied arts scene.

Day 8: Amalfi

Your time in Amalfi will be spent with nights at either the Hotel Luna Convento, a former convent with seamless sea views, or Hotel Santa Caterina – one of Italy's most famous hotels. Sitting high on the hillside surrounded by terraced gardens, its even comes with its own private beach. You'll then have plenty of time to relax in Amalfi's sunny piazzas, enjoying delicious seafood and its next-door white sands. It’s the perfect relaxing end to your holiday.

Day 9: Amalfi/Naples/UK

After breakfast, a private transfer will see you back, along the coast, to Naples for your flight home.
