Holiday Itinerary

Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 - Fly to Italy

Fly from your chosen regional airport to Rome. On arrival in Italy we’ll be met by our representative and transfer to our hotel. During our stay we have arranged an included half day city sightseeing excursion, to see some of Rome’s most famous sights.

Day 2 - Rome

A day in Rome! After breakfast our coach takes us the short journey into the centre of Rome where, on arrival, we have a half day city sightseeing tour by coach and on foot, accompanied by a local guide. The Eternal City never fails to delight and amaze, with its 2500 years of history and culture and its stylish, vibrant atmosphere. Highlights of the sightseeing tour are the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, the Palatine Hill, St Peter’s Square in the Vatican and the Trevi Fountain. This afternoon and evening are at leisure for further sightseeing or shopping.

The Pantheon, the city’s oldest and best preserved ancient monument, is a must see, together with the beautiful Piazza Navona. For shopping make for the area close to the Spanish Steps, along the Via del Corso and the Via Condotti, for some of Rome’s best shops.

When you are ready for something to eat you will be astounded at the seemingly unlimited variety; from pavement cafes to sophisticated restaurants you will easily find somewhere to suit all tastes and budgets.

Day 3 - Pompeii - Sorrento

Leaving after breakfast we drive south on the “Autostrada del Sole”. Passing Naples we follow the sweeping curve of the Bay of Naples to Pompeii, where we have a walking tour of the excavations, accompanied by a local guide (entrance fee not included, free for over 65’s). Buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD, the city lay buried for centuries until it was re-discovered in the 18th century. During the tour we will see the well preserved remains of temples, villas and the forum, streets worn away by chariots, shops and even bakeries with loaves of bread still in the ovens! Later this afternoon we continue our short journey to our hotel on the Sorrento Peninsula, where we stay for the next four nights.

Day 4 - Isle of Capri

Today we have arranged an optional excursion to the Isle of Capri. Capri is a beautiful island and has long been a favourite haunt of the jet-set. We take the ferry from Sorrento for the 40 minute cruise to this legendary island, landing at Marina Grande. From here we take the funicular railway up to Capri Town, with its pretty piazza, colourful alleyways, fashionable boutiques and chic restaurants. Our local guide will take us on a walk through the blossoming Augustus Gardens, from where there are wonderful views over to the famous ‘Faraglioni’ rocks and Marina Piccola, where Gracie Fields once lived. In the afternoon you could take a bus ride to Anacapri where, after perhaps visiting the Villa San Michele, you could take the chairlift up to the summit of Monte Solaro, the highest point on the island. Or you could visit the amazing Blue Grotto with its crystal clear azure waters, probably the island’s best known feature.

Day 5 -  At Leisure

A day at leisure to relax in the surroundings of the hotel, perhaps do some shopping or see some more of the sights, you could even take the local train to Naples - Italy’s liveliest city!

Day 6 - Amalfi Coast

There is an opportunity today to take one of the most famous drives in the world, on our optional excursion to the Amalfi Coast and Ravello. The Amalfi Drive runs down the coast on the southern side of the Sorrento Peninsula, winding its way around the Bay of Salerno. It passes through pretty whitewashed villages such as Positano and Praiano, which are perched precariously above the Mediterranean and backed by dramatic mountains. Hidden in the mountains above Amalfi, the peaceful village of Ravello has some of the best views of the coast. Here you will find the Villa Rufolo, which was the setting of Wagner’s opera ‘The Parsifal’. We’ll also visit Amalfi itself, characterised by fishermen’s cottages and its maze of narrow cobblestone streets, before returning to Sorrento.

Day 7 - Montecassino - Rome

A leisurely drive back to our 4 star hotel in Rome for an overnight stay. During the journey we will visit the restored Montecassino Abbey and the British & Commonwealth World War II cemetery.

Day 8 - Fly to the UK

We transfer to Rome airport in good time for you flight back to the UK.

N.B. On certain dates or with high demand the itinerary may operate in reverse.

Transfer: the transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately 1 hour.

Rome and Sorrento

Rome and Sorrento

This is one of Mistral's most popular holidays to Italy and has something for everyone. Your holiday begins with a two night stay in Rome. Your included half day city sightseeing tour will introduce you to many of the landmarks and monuments which have made Rome famous throughout the world. We also return to Rome for the last night of our holiday.

You then stay for four nights on the Sorrento Peninsula, which offers dramatic coastal scenery, world famous resorts and fascinating historical sites. Set on top of rocky cliffs on a beautiful headland is Sorrento, a lively resort with spectacular views over the Bay of Naples to the Volcano Vesuvius. In the hills above Sorrento is the charming village resort of Sant Agata, which has a traditional, southern Italian feel to it. From Sant Agata there are spectacular views across both the Bay of Naples and the Bay of Salerno, and also the Amalfi Coast.

Accommodation on the Sorrento Peninsula is on a half board basis, with continental breakast and table d'hote dinner included each day. In Rome our stay is on a bed and breakfast basis, giving you freedom of choice to eat in some of the city's many restaurants, trattorias, bistros and pizzerias.

Your Hotels

Your Hotels

In Rome we stay in good 4 star hotels such as the Park Hotel dei Massimi and the Hotel Raganelli or similar. Our hotels are usually in the quieter suburbs of Rome, away from much of the noise and traffic of Italy’s vibrant Capital city, but with the central attractions being readily accesible via public transport.

On the Sorrento Peninsula we stay in the 3 star Hotel Piccolo Paradiso in Massa Lubrense or the 3 star Hotel Villa Fernanda in Santa Agata, or similar. Both hotels have an outdoor swimming pool and an inviting sun terrace, whilst their well stocked bars and comfortable lounges are ideal for relaxing in after a day’s sightseeing.

For a supplement you can stay in a 4 star hotel on the Sorrento Peninsula, such as the Hotel Eliseo Park in Sant Agnello di Sorrento or the Hotel Atlantic Palace, which overlooks Sorrento, or similar. Our carefully chosen 4 star hotels have a swimming pool, bar, lounge and restaurant.

All hotel bedrooms are en-suite and have a television and telephone. Breakfast and dinner are served in the hotel’s restaurant.

On peak dates or with high demand we may use other good 3 and 4 star hotels.
