The Amalfi coast

The resort of Maiori and a fine hotel provide the ingredients for this break in southern Italy. Have a relaxing stay on one of Europe's most beautiful coastlines, close to the famous Amalfi drive, and discover Italy's landscape and history on our range of optional excursions.

Included


  • Return flights from your local airport to Italy
  • Return airport-to-hotel transfers
  • Seven nights' half-board or bed and breakfast accommodation at your chosen hotel
  • Full day tour to Sorrento and along the Amalfi coast
  • A visit to Paestum and Salerno
  • Fully escorted by a friendly, experienced tour manager
  • Single rooms are available for a supplement

Day one

Fly to Italy, meet your tour manager and make the journey to Maiori and your holiday base. Rest and relax at the hotel where dinner will be served this evening.

Day two

Get to know your surroundings and the hotel's facilities today, or perhaps take the shuttle bus to the beach. Stroll down the main Corso Reghinna with its many shops, and soak up the atmosphere of a town famous as the setting of some of film director Robert Rosellini's quintessentially Italian films.

Day three

Today's optional excursion will take you to the slopes of Mount Vesuvius. Climb the road to a height of 1000 metres, from where the views are stunning, and perhaps take a guide (payable locally) and climb the 500 metres or so further to the volcano's rim. Afterwards, take in the haunting ruins of Roman Pompeii, miraculously 'preserved' by the eruption of the volcano in AD79. Excavations have continued to reveal the city, which had been buried and forgotten until its rediscovery in the 18th Century.

Day four

Today's included excursion takes in the Amalfi drive, the scenic coastal road that winds its way above the towering cliffs and resorts like Positano that cling to the hillside. You'll also be able to spend time in Sorrento, taking in the town's colourful port and bustling Piazza Tasso.

Day five

Visit the Isle of Capri on today's optional excursion as you travel by steamer from Amalfi, past tiny Positano. Discover Anacapri on the slopes of Mount Solare, Villa San Michele, and Capri Town. Spend time shopping in the designer stores, and perhaps take an optional boat trip to the 'Blue Grotto', or have lunch before the return sailing.

Day six

Spend today at leisure, or perhaps make the short trip into nearby Amalfi, a port-town where the houses rise up the hillsides and the main square is dominated by the restored facade of the cathedral.

Day seven

Head south on today's included excursion around the Bay of Salerno to Paestum, site of some of the finest ancient Greek remains in Italy. Examine the preserved Doric columns and the tomb paintings before continuing to Salerno - a perfect southern Italian city complete with bustling streets, an imposing cathedral, dozens of trattorie and views over the Amalfi coastline.

Day eight

Transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.

Hotel San Pietro

Boasting a scenic setting in a valley surrounded by green hills, this family run hotel offers the warmest of welcomes and a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere in which to unwind.

Reginna Palace Hotel

Wonderfully positioned facing the beach, the Reginna Palace Hotel provides a beautiful setting for a relaxing holiday. The hotel is located in the heart of Maiori, and the resort's shops, bars and restaurants are all close to hand. The stop for the bus that runs along the coast is also nearby.
