This morning's highlight is our optional, half-day tour of Roman Pompeii. Buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D.79 and forgotten for hundreds of years, Pompeii was rediscovered in the 18th Century. Since then, excavations have gradually revealed the city's magnificent villas, temples and frescoed houses.
On today's optional excursion we cross to Capri, the magical 'Isle of Dreams'. Enjoy the spectacular views from Villa San Michele in Anacapri; take a chair-lift to the summit of Solare (payable locally); and visit the island's main town to shop - or more likely window-shop - at the host of exclusive designer stores.
Today's excursion takes in two of Italy's most important historical locations. Montecassino has been the site of one of Christendom's most important monasteries for nearly 1500 years. Almost destroyed during one of the last great battles of the Second World War, it was faithfully rebuilt and stands, today, as a working monastery and monument to the 4000-plus soldiers who lost their lives there.By contrast, the 18th-century Royal Palace at Caserta is a vast building, built in the sumptuous style of Versailles, overlooking a great square and some of Europe's most splendid gardens.
With its immense cliffs and dizzy bridges spanning deep gorges, the Amalfi Drive is among Europe's most scenic coast roads. Experience the unforgettable view above Positano's colourful Moorish-style houses, and visit beautiful Amalfi and Ravello, with its alleys, stairways and roofed passages clinging to the mountainside, on this final optional excursion.
Spend the second week of your holiday relaxing in the hotel or exploring the surrounding area. We'll also be re-running the same programme of optional excursions as on Days Two to Six, so you always join us on one or more of those as well.
Transfer back to the airport for check-in and your flight home.
