A la Carte Optional Extras

Sorrento - Guided Capri, Ancapri and Blue Grotto Tour (Full day)

Another of the main experiences of the region is a visit to nearby Capri. With your guide and small group, take the ferry to the island. Once you arrive in Capri, the boat will be waiting to take you onto Grotta Azurra (Blue Grotto). This special place is only accessible by small boat and once inside the grotto, you will see the sunlight pass into the underwater cavity and shine through the seawater, to create a stunning blue reflection. This tour also includes some time at Anacapri, the highest part of the island which affords some fantastic views over The Bay of Naples. Enjoy lunch and some free time to wander before transfering back to Sorrento.

Price Per Person: From £160 includes transfers, guide, lunch (beverage not included) and entrance tickets to the Blue Grotto (subject to weather conditions). Please note if the Blue Grotto is not accessible due to tidal conditions, this tour will be changed to a boat tour of the Faraglioni Rocks. Alternatively if sea conditions are too bad, you will be taken on a tour of the island instead by land.

Day 3
Choice of Pompeii Tours

Day 3
Choice of Pompeii Tours

Today you have the choice of two thrilling Pompeii tours:

Option 1 – Pompeii & Herculaneum

Join your guided small group for a tour through Pompeii. Discover the remains of this ill-fated city including the Baths, Forums and villa built by the Romans in 80BC. Marvel at the remains of the frescos that adorn the walls and floors in some of the villas that remain. Then travel onto Herculaneum to see a better preserved city, where you can still walk the same streets as the residents did over 2,000 years ago, see the timber features and household objects. Excavations of this fascinating region are still going on today.

Option 2 – Pompeii & Mount Vesuvius

If you want to explore Pompeii with your guided small group but then want sweeping views of the region, then continuing on after Pompeii to Mount Vesuvius is the tour to pick. The bus brings you up to 1,000 metres and then you are free to walk the remaining 200 metres to the crater. Please note if you are doing this tour you need warm, layered clothing. If you require walking aids, there is a local guide who hires out walking sticks to help with your climb. This service is optional and requires a small fee payable locally, as does the option to walk up to the 1,200 metres point.

Evening at leisure.

DAY 4
Private Transfer to the airport

DAY 4
Private Transfer to the airport

At leisure until your private transfer to the airport.

Alternatively, if your flight is not until the afternoon/evening, why not add in our Optional Private Guided Catacombs tour. With your guide you will get to discover the Catacombs of San Gennaro, before transfering onto the airport for your flight home after. See Optional Extra below for more information.

However, if you don’t want your Italian adventure to finish just yet, why not add on a few days in Rome. You can either opt for our main Rome tours or if you are visiting during July and August and love opera and the ballet, then the Caracalla Summer Festival is taking place. Get to experience either an opera or the ballet with the backdrop of the Caracalla ruins in truly mesmerising open-air surroundings!

If Opera and the ballet is of interest to you, then maybe our Bel Canto Naples Opera Break is more of interest.

Reviews & Feedback

Testimonials

Just wanted to thank you and your team once again for an amazing holiday! Everything was literally 5* from the transport and accommodation through to the drivers and guides. Absolutely loved the area and will definitely be returning at some point! Our second trip with Weekend a la carte and our second faultless holiday - can’t wait for our next adventure!

Rob & Wendy

The tour of Pompeii surpassed all expectations. Our guide, Francesco was one of the archeologists that has worked on the actual excavations of the area. He was hugely knowledgeable of the area he showed us. The virtual reality headset displays really do bring the old city of Pompeii to life in a truly unbelievable way. You appear to be the only tour company that have arranged the use of such technology. Our next trip was to Capri. Again, your arrangements put everything and everyone in place at the right time to get us to the boat. A real bonus trip, thank you.
