Archaeological excavations have uncovered remarkable relics, many fully intact, from this once prosperous city. Return to Sorrento mid-afternoon and enjoy the remainder of the day at leisure.

Capri

The island of Capri is an area of breathtaking beauty with olive trees, grapevines and flowers providing a Mediterranean charm.

Traverse the pristine water, in various shades of blue and emerald green, as you approach the picturesque island. You’ll have time to explore Capri, and travel via mini-van to Anacapri, the highest town on the island. Wander through the town and absorb the local atmosphere and beautiful surroundings.

After experiencing Italy’s “coast with the most”, continue on to a local village where you’re in for a tasty treat as you ‘get your hands dirty’ while preparing dough during a pastry-making lesson. After sampling the treats, depart for the Cilento area and arrive at the hotel for an evening at leisure.

Paestum

Today’s adventure explores another of Italy’s most famous archaeological sites: the Greek Temple of Paestum, an ancient Greek colony, serenely situated and surrounded by fields and wildflowers. The entire site is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and among the best preserved monuments of Magna Graecia, the Greek colony that once covered much of southern Italy.

A stop is made at a local venue where you see how the cheese is made and sample the final product.

Agropoli

Attend an entertaining cooking class where your instructor teaches you how to prepare delicious Italian cuisine during this hands-on experience. At the end of the class, lunch consists of the spectacular dish you just created. Buon appetito! To top off the experience, your next visit is to a vineyard for a wine’ tasting event.
