Tour Description

ENCHANTED LAND OF MYTHS AND CULINARY DELIGHTS


Our authentic privately escorted tour  experience journeys through the Sorrento Peninsula, Amalfi Coast, and Paestum to highlight  the region of Campania's rich history and the passion of the people who live here.

Enjoy archaeological site tours of Herculaneum- the Vesuvius buried town and Paestum- the best preserved Greek Doric Temples, a boat trip to the fascinating island Procida, sites along the Amalfi Coast and inland like Santa Maria Capua Vetere  and the Royal Palace of Caserta.

All while taking in the flavors of Campania from fresh seafood, juicy vegetables drizzled in olive oil, and the aromatic local wines. After all it’s in Campania where American Ancel Keyes “invented” the Mediterranean Diet. Local gastronomic gems include creamy Mozzarella di Bufala, Limoncello made with ripe Sorrento Ovale lemons, and the tasting tomatoes. 

The simple and delicious Mediterranean diet is paired with unique wines produced from the sun baked vineyards of the coast to the volcanic soils on Mount Vesuvius
