Some will be picked up directly between 6:45 and 7:15 A.M. depending on the location of the hotel. The departure from Rome to Naples will be done by coach assisted by a multilingual tour guide. Upon arrival, a walking tour will then commence. The guide will assist you in getting to know the city better and answer any questions that you may have. The attractions will include the San Carlo Opera House, which is one of the oldest working public opera houses in Europe. The Royal Palace may then be visited as it sits directly adjacent to the opera house. This truly captures the essence of Italy with its unique construction and detail to architecture. Other locations that will be seen include the Gallery of Umberto I, and the Piazza del Plebiscito. Once Naples has been toured, a short trip to Pompeii is in order. Here you will be able to see the impressive remains of this ancient city destroyed during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD.

This natural spectacle consists of a variety of underwater caverns that are tinted a beautiful hue of blue by the sun’s rays, making it a favorite attraction among many visitors. The tour will then visit the Augustus Gardens. These plush gardens were established by Friedrich Alfred Krupp, and were built to compliment the natural beauty of the island of Capri. The last stop will be at the famous Piazzetta. With its charming pavement cafes that attract the rich and famous, this lively square is the center of social life in Capri.
