SORRENTO  and the AMALFI COAST

2017 dates:  April 22 - May 3      Oct 24 - Nov 4

 


Legend says that the ancient god Hercules loved a nymph called Amalfi and when he sought the most beautiful place in the world to immortalize his love, he settled on the coast along the Bay of Naples. Another ancient legend tells of Sorrento Sirens who enchanted sailors making them fall in love During Roman times the wealthy patrician class built opulent holiday villas here..

On our exploration of the Amalfi region we stay for ten nights in an elegant four-star hotel in the sea-side town of Sorrento. From here we explore the many historic sites and the stunning towns in the Bay of Naples region. The Amalfi Coast is a land of "everlasting spring", of bright colours, golden light and charming flower-filled villages. In April and in October the temperature is usually a balmy 17 - 22 degrees, ideal for comfortable touring.
