Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your 2-day tour from Rome to the Campania region of Southern Italy starts with a coach ride to Naples, followed by a visit to the ancient city of Pompeii, a World Heritage Site known for its well-preserved archaeological and volcanic ruins. You’ll end the day on the spectacular Amalfi Coast in the town of Sorrento, where overnight accommodation is included (select your level of hotel when booking).

The next morning, head out on a day trip to the island of Capri, home of the Blue Grotto, before returning to Rome by coach.

(For winter trips, when the tour to Capri does not operate, you’ll spend the day at your leisure in Sorrento).
To admire Naples, the most fascinating way is to caress it with the look from above, from the vantage points. Vomero hill is one of the best place to do it

Piazza Tasso
The irregular and jagged coastline of this peninsula, which seems to want to protect from the sea all the colorful houses and the characteristic streets that are located in the inland areas, will welcome you and welcome you in what many call a real paradise on earth. Sorrento is not only the city of limoncello and churches. Sorrento is the city of entertainment, especially the nocturnal one. In the evening, in fact, the city changes its face and turns into an amazing party

Monte Solaro
With a precipitous, jagged coast, and encircled by the famous faraglioni (sea stacks), enormous and uniquely-shaped boulders, and by numerous caves that tell of evocative plays of light.

Amazing experience
, Oct 2021
This was the perfect trip with amazing guides. Everything was timed to perfection. The knowledge of the guides and attention to detail made this an unforgettable experience.
Incredible from beginning to end!
, Jul 2021
This tour was amazing from beginning to end. Our guide Rosella was incredible , kind & fun. Then the guide through the Pompeii ruins Fabiano was so incredibly knowledgeable about every bit of what we saw it made the experience breathtaking & unforgettable. Both guides looked out for us incredibly. Our stay in Sorrento was fantastic. We had a delicious dinner & then a fantastic buffet breakfast (Not a continental one). The staff at the Michelangelo hotel were very kind. We were than met by our next guide Sascha who took us on a ferry & then we got to go in the amazing Blue Grotto cave & then shop & eat in Capri on the cliff overlooking the sea. Sascha took such VERY good care of us the entire time making sure we were comfortable with every aspect of the tour. When we couldn't walk anymore he even got us a bus ride back to the ferry that he didn't have to do. This entire tour was incredible & if I was to come back to Italy again I would actually do this one again. This group of tour guides were the absolute best of all our tours & you could feel the genuine care in each of them for us & for what they do.

My husband and I did this 2 day tour and found the organisation very lacking we arrived in Pompeii and had an excellent tour but got back to the bus to find our luggage outside and that we were being transferred to another bus. 30mins later this was done only to be dropped off at another hotel and told that another bus would pick us up and left by ourselves. finally at destination and sorrento beautiful and hotel gorgeous . capri the next day and was off to the grotto. they transferred people from other day tours to our boat so it meant there was no room for my husband on a boat so they had to over load it and made the experience very uncomfortable with 5 people on a boat that takes 4. then back to capri and we seem to spend most of the day waiting for other groups 1/2 day, full day tours to join us eating into our free time. ferry back to naples and new guide who had no idea who was who., Locations great even though lunch stop on Capri had no view whatsoever. food ok, tour guides did their best. but organisation very very lacking. maybe on 3 hour bus trip from Rome they could have mentioned the transfers to other buses instead of confusion in a carpark.

Dear Guests, thank you for this contribution after attending our Limoncello two-day tour to Pompeii, Sorrento and Capri. We're sorry you got a perception of confusion during the transfers, we appreciate your viewpoint. Our best selling products (the Limoncello being one of those) are 'group tours' and every day we have the privilege to accompany a big number of travelers from all over the world to Italy's main destination in a comfortable and affordable way. The tour you booked is actually a merge of two other tours, this is the reason why you had to change bus (some people would return to Rome after Pompeii, for instance, while other people would continue to Capri and toward the Sorrentine Coast). That said, your review is precious to us and helps us monitor the guest experience. We'll do all we can to make these operations smoother and have our staff of tour leaders prepare the clients for those in a more organized way. Kind regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team
Wow!! Amazing tour! Worth every penny spent.

Gorgeous places but..

Places visited were amazing but a delay from Pompeii caused lost hours in Sorrento :( could have stopped a bit in Naples too..guides were informative and mostly cheerful
icon Response from Host , Sep 2019
Dear Guest, so glad that you liked the places visited, Pompeii and the Sorrentine Coast are real gems, absolute must-sees in Italy. We apologize for the delay you mention, we'll do our best to reduce the impact of such inconvenience on future tours. We appreciate your feedback, thanks for reaching out! Kind regards, the Gray Line I Love Rome Team

We loved our South Italy tour!

We loved everything about our South Italy tour! Pompeii was fascinating, Sorrento was fun to visit, and Capri was beautiful. We would highly recommend paying for the highest category hotel. We stayed in a beautiful hotel that overlooked the Bay. We were a quick walk to the heart of Sorrento and we enjoyed the evening walking around the town. The guides were great! Even though we didn't get to travel to the Blue Grotto because of weather conditions, our guide made our trip to the island of Capri a great one! We hope to travel here again!
Outstanding experience.

Excellent tour guides who were very knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. Hotel was beautiful we plan to go back to Sorrento and stay again. Food was delicious. Treated like royalty. Highly recommend. Would have booked the 2 nights if we had longer vacation.
