Trip highlights

Pompeii: Eerie and almost alive
Highlight #1
Pompeii: Eerie and almost alive
A terrible volcanic eruption led to Pompeii being covered entirely under rubble. So well-preserved that you can still walk down 1000-year-old Roman streets, see shops, cafes (and even a brothel).
Enchanting Southern Italy
Highlight #2
Capri : Sunshine, sea and sailboats
Capri has attracted the rich and the famous for years, and after watching this video by Jairo Villa, you'll see why: colorful sailboats, the cool waters of the Mediterranean and the world-famous Blue Grotto awaits.

Visiting not just the popular tourist sites but going to different places, off the beaten track and meeting people who are passionate about their region or products and services they provide. The smaller group is more intimate and more relaxed, there is a better interaction with the leader and locals. To not be moving to new accommodation every day and not having ridiculously early starts was a bonus!

Yes I would go with Back Roads again. Our guide was wonderful, she went above and beyond for us. She was one of the gang in the end.

We had such a great crew to travel with and our Mother duck Flavio... He did a fabulous job. The country side, food, wine, history and architecture were amazing. Hard to choose what I enjoyed the most really.

The Italian Indulgence Tour was my first trip abroad and I loved every minute of it. I was stunned by the beauty of the Italian landscape, and learned so much from our tour guide Flavio regarding the history, architecture and culture of Italy. I traveled with my 3 college friends. We were the only Americans among 18, but thanks to Flavio and events such as the cooking class, we quickly bonded with our fellow travelers from Australia and New Zealand. So much so that there were many tears and hugs when we parted on the last day. Flavio worked 24/7 to assure us a safe, happy and wonderful experience. I am especially grateful that he watched over those of us with special dietary requirements. And Michele was such a skilled and safe driver that we were always able to relax, enjoy the scenery, chat, or sneak a little nap while on the bus. It was magical how he always appeared with the bus right at the moment we needed him. The comradery between Flavio and Michele was genuine, and they often had us laughing hysterically. Thanks, Back-Roads Tours, Flavio, and Michelle for an Italian experience I will always treasure.

Back-Roads was just a fantastic tour experience! Loved the small group and the smaller coach to get us round country lanes and little villages into the real England. Couldn’t fault our tour guide and coach driver. Their personal experiences in Cornwall brought our tour alive. We have some very special memories from our tour which we’ll keep with us always. Now have a very soft spot for this part of England. Thanks Back-Roads!

We completed the Italian Indulgence tour two weeks ago and we were blown away. As this was my husbands first experience with a bus tour at 64 year I was a bit tentative but he absolutely loved it!! Flavio our wonderful tour guide and Fabio the equally wonderful bus driver work so well together and when we do our next tour with Backroads we hope we hit the jackpot and have then again. Can thoroughly recommend this tour is you want to be blown away every day.

Our guide, Flavio was amazing. He took us to some incredible places on our Tuscan Treats tour. The off the beaten path touring is the only way to see the real country of Italy.

Just finished the Backroads Italian Indulgence tour!! Flávio and Michele were the best tour guide and bus driver you could ever hope to get. They were professional, punctual, knowledgeable, kind and simply great fun to be around. This was my first experience travelling and it won't be my last!! Congratulations a Backroads on employing two wonderful men. You have completely blown me away with your trip planning and details.The accomodation and food was fabulous. The timing was great. Plenty of time to look around and get a feel for the different regions without being rushed. The tours were engaging and enjoyable- I particularly loved the cooking class with Laura and The distillery and truffle hunt. Great experiences.

Finished Corners of Cornwall last Tuesday, 2nd August, and totally loved it! A big thanks, and lots of love to our guide Margot for such an enjoyable time in an easygoing, and safe atmosphere, (important for this solo traveler). You really held the group together and looked after your little ducks.The accommodation was superb, absolutely loved all the hotels and the food was top notch also. I could only wish the tour was a little longer, 10-12 days would allow a greater immersion in such a lovely place, and longer time in those fab hotels!

We recently did the Backroads Italian Indulgence tour with Flavio as our tour guide and Carmelo as our driver. We were very impressed with Flavio's passion for his country and culture which he shared so joyfully. We thoroughly enjoyed the variety of experiences on this tour and would highly recommend it. Carmelo was a very safe driver, a quiet and happy man and we felt comfortable all the way. Thank you. ☺

Itinerary

Naples - Pompeii - Paestum

Bright, buzzing and echoing with tales from millennia of history, Naples is your springboard for exploring Southern Italy. 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.

Paestum - Minori

This morning we have an appointment at Tenuta Seliano – an authentic farm-inn – where we’ll visit the buffaloes and watch owner Cecilia Bellelli Baratta make light, fresh mozzarella. Afterwards, we’ll continue our trip off the tourist trail with a guided tour of Paestum. With crumbling marble temples set against a mountain backdrop, this village is a little-known treasure waiting to be discovered. Later, we’ll return to Tenuta Seliano and a kitchen piled high with local produce, including mozzarella and ricotta, fruits and vegetables, buffalo meat and fresh pasta. It’s time to learn the art of traditional Campania cooking! Our hard work will be rewarded when we get to eat what we’ve prepared at lunch with the family. Our hunger well satisfied, we’ll continue on to Minori.

Minori - Ravello - Tramonti - Minori

This morning we’ll explore Minori on a guided walking tour before continuing on to Ravello for a guided tour. 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.

Minori - Amalfi - Positano - Minori

After a hearty breakfast, our first stop, Amalfi will be nothing short of wow-inducing. When we get there, we’ll embark on a short walking tour with plenty of time to take in the surrounding beauty. Later, we’ll venture onwards to the oh-so blissful town of Positano. To continue the artisan theme of the tour, we’ll meet with a ceramics specialist for the chance to join a ceramic colouring session. After a delightful and insightful day, we’ll rest our heads in Minori tonight.

Minori - Capri - Minori

The high life beckons today as we sail to the island of Capri, off the Sorrento Peninsula. Lapped by the inky blue waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea, Capri has been a popular resort since the days of Ancient Rome. We’ll enjoy a ride on the charming funicular railway 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.

Minori - Naiori - Vietri - Cetara - Minori

Today we’ll add more pearls to our collection with visits to (and walking tours of) 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 another guided tour. Back in Minori, we’ll enjoy some free time before meeting for our final dinner together.

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.
