Holiday overview

With its charming eponym as your base, this is your chance to explore the Sorrento Peninsula's picturesque beauty in luxurious comfort. Your private chauffeur will take the strain of the scenic roads and you’ll enjoy the ease of unpacking once with a stay at one of Sorrento’s finest hotels. Here, glass chandeliers frame clifftop views over the Bay of Naples. Expert-led tours will then showcase the region’s highlights, including the Roman wonders of Pompeii, Herculaneum or Stabiae, and Capri’s island paradise, dotted with hidden grottos and millennia-old sights.

Holiday itinerary

Day 1: UK/Naples/Sorrento

Start your trip with complimentary airport lounge access before your flight out to Naples. On arrival, you'll be met by your private chauffeur and brought, around the gulf, to your stunning accommodation. Both our options are perched atop the Sorrento cliffs, offering spectacular views from their terrace restaurants over the Bay of Naples and its Mt. Vesuvius icon. The Deluxe offering is particularly appealing, with its antique furnishings, rooftop hot tubs and private waterside deck. And, while you’ll enjoy a gourmet breakfasts and a welcome dinner at both, you’ll be treated to indulgent full board at the Grand Hotel de la Ville. Expect fresher-than-fresh seafood and delightfully seasonal produce.

Stay: Hotel Continental Sorrento (Standard), Grand Hotel de la Ville (Superior), Grand Hotel Ambasciatori (Deluxe)

Day 2: Amalfi Coast

Swapping shorelines, your chauffeur will bring you to the Amalfi Coast. While having a private driver will afford you the flexibility to explore at your own pace, don’t miss out on a stop at Amalfi and its multi-coloured jumble of historic houses, tumbling towards its azure, beach-dotted waters. Its cathedral is particularly impressive. There’s also Ravello, a town rich with musical heritage whose idyllic Villa Rufolo gardens inspired one Richard Wagner.

Day 3: Pompeii, Herculaneum or Stabiae

Today you’ll discover the region’s fated Roman heritage, immaculately preserved under a sea of ash from the 1st-century eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. While Pompeii’s amphitheatres, giant tombs and stunningly frescoed houses rightly grab the headlines, Herculaneum’s mosaicked baths and Stabiae’s ridge-top villas offer a certain lesser-known intrigue. However, whichever you decide upon, your private expert guide will bring it all to life as you wander flagstone streets, dipping in and out of thousand-year-old shops and stunningly detailed residences.

Day 4: Capri

Today the hotels private shuttle to the harbour to board a hydrofoil to Capri. A favourite among holidaying Roman emperors, this paradise island hides great ruined villas and colossal sculptures among its cliff jags and spectacularly verdant interior. In between, there’s everything from 700-year-old monasteries to 17th-century marbled churches. You’ll explore it all on a guided group tour, ending with a visit to the spectacular Gardens of Augustus. Here, verdant cascades of rich exoticism zigzag from its clifftop crags right down to the crashing ocean below.

Days 5-7: Sorrento

End your trip with three days to relax and explore Sorrento. With your hotel just a few steps from the 14th-century San Francesco Cloisters and the palm-tree-lined Piazza Sant'Antonino, you’ll be perfectly poised to stroll the city’s cobbled streets. While away happy afternoons in pavement-side cafés, marvelling at its cathedral’s impressively gilded frescoes or simply relaxing on one of the nearby golden-sands beaches. There’s also more than 150 miles of hiking trails to explore, hugging the coast and roaming through lemon and olive groves populated with Mediterranean scrub and birds of prey.
