Amalfi Coast and Capri Island - Italy
8 days, price from
  € 649

The air is fresh and sea-scented, a light breeze getting under your clothes, diluting the heat; it gets more fragrant at each step - lemons, wildflowers growing on both sides of the path, the brackish breeze blowing from the sea. The day is so clear that - as you admire the view extending in front of your eyes - you can distinctly see each island and detail - including the Island of Capri, the untamed nature of which you have explored just yesterday, as you walked through lighthouses, forts and caves open on the glistening azure sea. 

Amalfi Coast is all of this and much more: it’s the main road of Sorrento, buzzing with tourists and locals, a new variant of limoncello to be tasted in every bottega; it’s Amalfi, with its narrow streets always teeming with people, and the silence in the Valle delle Ferriere, right out of the city centre; it’s the freshly caught fish you enjoy at each meal, the emotion of walking on one of the most popular and scenic hikes in the whole world, a dip in the crystal clear sea. 

You can choose to stay a few days or make the holiday as long as you want: you’ll surely want to come back, even just for seeing the sunset on the Faraglioni.
