Itinerary

01

Day 1: Naples

Arrive at any time.
Welcome to Naples, home to the best pizza of the world. As your fellow travellers are arriving throughout the day, there are no planned activities until your group meeting at 6pm this evening, so check in to the hotel (check in time is approx 3pm) and enjoy the city.

02

Day 2: Naples/Sorrento

Start the day with an orientation walk of Naples with your CEO. Transfer to Sorrento and your home for the week, an organic lemon farm. Enjoy a guided tour of Pompeii en route.
We head off by private transport to our accommodation, an agriturismo just outside of Sorrento. En route, visit the famed site of Pompeii, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. After a tour with an expert local guide, there will be some free time to explore on your own before heading to our accommodation.

03

Day 3: Sorrento

Tour the agriturismo's lemon groves. Before dinner, enjoy a pizza-making demonstration.
Start off the day with a tour of the agriturismo to learn the history of the property and more about lemon cultivation. Later, learn to make one of the area's specialties - pizza!

04

Day 4: Sorrento

Set off on the beautiful "Walk of the Gods" trail that climbs along ridges high above the coastal towns of Positano and Praiano. Finish in Positano, then take a scenic public boat ride back to Sorrento. End the day with a limoncello tasting.
The path can be rough underfoot and a little exposed, but well worth it for the spectacular scenery and the chance to be so close to nature and "the Gods". The outstanding beauty of the Amalfi Coast can only be fully appreciated on foot.

The walk finishes in Positano where you will have time to explore the bustling resort if you wish. Take a scenic public boat ride back to Sorrento.

Wind down the day with a limoncello tasting before heading back to the agriturismo.

05

Day 5: Sorrento

Enjoy a free day to do as you please. Opt to visit local villages, explore Sorrento, sign up for a full-day cooking class, or to spend some time on the beach.
For those looking to take a stroll around town, start at the Piazza Tasso to get a feel for the hustle and bustle of local life. Make your way to the Basilica, shop for handmade goods such as ceramics and lace-work, or stop at one of the lively restaurants around the square for a bite of Neapolitan fare (seafood, anyone?). Then head down to the marinas for some time by the sea.

06

Day 6: Sorrento

Enjoy a day trip to the island of Capri and enjoy free time to explore. Opt to walk along the trails on the island, go swimming, or brush shoulders with the more well-off island inhabitants at fancy shops.
Board a ferry to Capri. Hop on board the 'funicolare' to explore Capri Town's piazza. The Caprese salad is named after this town, and, of course, there is also locally produced limoncello, made with the island's lemons. Walk along the trails on the island, go swimming, or brush shoulders with the more well-off island inhabitants at fancy shops.
