Sample Itinerary

Day 1

Your getaway along Italy’s splendid Costiera Amalfitana will begin with arrival to Naples Capodichino airport, where you will be welcomed by your private chauffeur.

Day 2

Today your private chauffeur will transport you to the picturesque hilltop town of Ravello, beloved for its quaint center, sumptuous villas, and stunning views overlooking the Amalfi Coast.

For lunch you’ll savor a meal accented by panoramic sea views at a gourmet restaurant. In the afternoon travel to the seaside hamlet of Atrani, known as one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, where your local expert will lead you on a walking exploration of the town. End the day on a sweet note with a traditional granita.

Day 3

Embark on a dazzling day at sea to discover some of the Amalfi Coast’s most scenic coves and grottoes during a private, captain-led boat tour. As you boat along the coastline, stop at such scenic spots as the Fiordo di Furore and Marina di Praia to swim in pristine, aquamarine waters and delight in the stunning scenery.

Next, travel back in time to the year 27 AD with a visit to Villa Jovis, the ancient home of infamous Roman Emperor Tiberius. End the day with a walking tour of Anacapri, stopping to behold the exquisite majolica floor mosaics of the Baroque Chiesa di San Michele Arcangelo.

Day 5

Enjoy a leisurely free day to explore Capri independently. Sunbathe at the beach, sip Prosecco poolside, shop at the island’s many sophisticated boutiques, all at your own pace. In the evening dine at a dramatic cliffside restaurant awarded a Michelin-star for its gourmet cuisine and elegant atmosphere.

Day 6

In the late morning you’ll bid Capri farewell and depart by private boat for the stunning seaside town of Sorrento. Arrive for check-in at your five-star luxury hotel overlooking the sea, before traveling by chauffeur to an organic farm perched in the hills above the coastline.

Your visit will culminate with a special lunch paired with regional wines from Campania led by an expert sommelier.

Day 7

Experience two of the Bay of Naples’ most hidden treasures, the idyllic islands of Procida and Ischia, by private boat. During your exploration of these exquisite ancient islands, your boat captain will leave plenty of time for swimming and sunbathing along the way, before setting anchor so that you can discover Procida’s sherbet hued Marina Corricella, and Ischia Ponte’s watercolor waterfront and Aragonese Castle, independently.

Your local expert will lead you on an in-depth food tour to uncover the city’s rich culinary traditions. Along the way visit an antique caffe renowned for its delicious Neapolitan espresso corto, learn about traditional Southern Italian pastry like baba and sfogliatella at a family owned pastry shop, and discover the delights of truly typical Neapolitan pizza.
