Your Tour Itinerary - Enchanting Southern Italy

Day 1 Naples - Pompeii - Paestum

We’ll start with our local guide leading us into the labyrinthine streets of the historic centre in search of the Cappella Sansevero, home to the Veiled Christ – one of the finest sculptures in the world. The afternoon will transport us back in time with a visit to archaeological wonder Pompeii. We’ll then travel to UNESCO World heritage-listed Paestum, where we’ll dine tonight. (D)

Day 2 Paestum - Minori

Today we have an appointment at Tenuta Seliano – an authentic farminn – where we’ll visit the buffaloes and watch the owner make light, fresh mozzarella. We’ll then take a guided tour of Paestum before returning to Tenuta Seliano and a kitchen piled high with fresh local produce. It’s time for a cooking lesson! Our hard work will be rewarded when we get to eat what we’ve prepared at lunch with the family. Our hunger satisfied, we’ll continue on to Minori. (B,L)

Day 3 Minori - Ravello - Tramonti - Minori

This morning we’ll explore Minori on a guided walking tour before continuing on to Ravello. Our next stop involves a citrus twist – we’re off to a lemon farmhouse. After learning about the cultivation process, we’ll dive into a tasting spread of limoncello, lemon salad and of course, lemon gelato. (B,D)

Day 4 Minori - Amalfi - Positano - Minori

Today’s first stop, Amalfi, will be nothing short of wow-inducing. When we get there, we’ll embark on a short walking tour. Later, we’ll venture onwards to the oh-so blissfu town of Positano. Here we’ll meet with a ceramics specialist and join a ceramic colouring session. We’ll rest our heads in Minori tonight. (B)

Day 5 Minori - Capri - Minori

The high life beckons today as we sail to the island of Capri. We’ll enjoy a ride on the charming funicular railwas from the port, which whisks us through bright, fragrant lemon groves, before taking some free time to see and be seen among the exclusive boutiques, cafés and restaurants of Capri town. Later on this afternoon, we’ll return to Minori. (B)

Day 6 Minori - Maiori - Vietri - Cetara - Minori

Today we’ll add more pearls to our collection with visits to Maiori and Cetara. After a morning of exploring, we’ll drive to Vietri sul Mare – where local craftspeople create hand painted, vividly coloured ceramics – for a look around. Back in Minori, we’ll enjoy some free time before meeting for our final dinner together. (B,D)

Day 7 Minori - Palace of Caserta - Sant'Agata Dei Goti - Naples

Today we’ll bid the Amalfi Coast a fond farewell and drive to the 18th century Royal Palace of Caserta, the last great creation of the Italian Baroque period. From the royal to the rustic – our next stop is a farmhouse in Sant’Agata de’ Goti, where we’ll taste Falanghina wines produced from black grapes grown in the Campania region. There’s time for one last leisurely Italian lunch before we return to Naples, where our adventure ends. (B,L)

This tour can be combined with Slow Food Tour of Puglia, Sail the Bay of Naples and/or Italian Indulgence.

Why Back-Roads Touring

Mini-Coaches

On the vast majority of tours we travel by Mercedes or Mercedes Vito mini-coaches, equipped with comfortable seats, air-conditioning and large windows for enjoying the view. With the flexibility to go anywhere a car can, we take the smaller roads through beautiful scenery and get right to the heart of tiny villages and buzzing cities.
Along the way, your Tour Leader can offer intriguing insights about the views we see over the onboard PA system. And, with long drives kept to a minimum, you’ll have plenty of time to stretch your legs and explore sites for yourself.

Scenic back roads not motorways

Winding country lanes. Coastal beauty spots. Breathtaking mountain passes. With luxury mini-coaches that take us along scenic roads beyond the reach of large vehicles, the journey is as much a part of the adventure as the destination.

Authentic Local Experiences

Truly getting to know a destination means stepping off the typical tourist trail. From hidden-gem attractions to local favourites, we take time to seek out genuine experiences that take you to the heart of each spectacular region.

Culinary Discoveries

One of the most enjoyable ways to experience a different culture is to sample the cuisine. From visits to local producers to food and wine tastings and even cooking lessons, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to discover new flavours.

Boutique Hotels

Whether it’s a classic country inn or an elegant chateau, each day’s journey ends in a hotel with plenty of character. We opt for accommodation that reflects the personality of the local area, and fits right in with its surroundings.

Leisurely Paced Travel

Forget sunrise starts and long days hopping on and off the bus. We rarely leave before 8.30am and give each stop the attention it deserves – keeping long drives to a minimum. And giving you plenty of time to explore at your own pace.
