Itinerary
Women's Travel Club Sorrento, Italy Tour
Day 1 - Arrive Naples

Welcome to Italy!
Welcome to Naples, home to the best pizza of the world. As your fellow travellers are arriving throughout the day, there are no planned activities until your group meeting this evening, so check in to the hotel (check in time is approx 3pm) and enjoy the city. Immerse yourself in the heart of Naples' old city with a walk down the narrow Spaccanapoli street. Wander into quirky shops, grab a slice of pizza, or sample some limoncello.
Accommodations - Hotel Correra 241

 

Day 2 - Naples - Sorrento

Start the day with a migrant tour of Naples. Catch a glimpse of another side of Naples - through the eyes of a newcomer to Italy. This unique tour combines historic sites with landmarks important to the wide variety of migrant groups that call Naples home. Travellers are not just receiving a tour they'll never forget, they're also supporting an organization dedicated to help migrants integrate into a more accepting society.
We head off by private transport to our accommodation, an agriturismo just outside of Sorrento. En route, visit the famed site of Pompeii, at the foot of Mount Vesuvius. Walk through the ruins of Pompeii, which was buried under ash and pumice when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD. The forum, the baths and many houses remain well preserved and provide us with a glimpse of what life was like in the first century. After a tour with an expert local guide, there will be some free time to explore on your own before heading to our accommodation.
For the duration of our trip, we stay at the same agriturismo. Located about a short taxi ride uphill from Sorrento, our accommodation is at a working lemon farm that has opened its doors to tourism. The 'agriturismo' is surrounded by open terraces and groves of lemon trees protected by wooden pergolas made with chestnut.
Accommodations - Agriturismo Giardini di Vigliano

 

Day 3 - Sorrento

Start off the day with a tour of the agriturismo to learn the history of the property and more about lemon cultivation. Stroll through fragrant lemon groves and enjoy an introductory tour of the agriturismo, including the history of the property. Get to know your hosts and start making this slice of heaven feel like home.
Before dinner, enjoy a pizza-making demonstration. Dig right into the dough and learn how to make pizza, Italian-style. Naples is the birthplace of pizza, and it's basically just right up the road (or up the coast), so this is just about as authentic as you're going to get.
Accommodations - Agriturismo Giardini di Vigliano

 

Day 4 - Path of the Gods

Set off on the beautiful "Path of the Gods" trail that climbs along ridges high above the coastal towns of Positano and Praiano. You will from the small town of Bomerano and follow the path along the Amalfi Coast with sensational views of lemon groves, gorges, deep valleys, woodland, abandoned farmhouses, and the sea below. Stop in the towns of Montepertuso and Positano, where there is more to explore. The walk finishes in Positano where you will have time to explore the bustling resort if you wish. Then take a scenic public boat ride back to Sorrento.
Learn all about limoncello production (and tasting!) at a local limoncello factory. Southern Italy is known specifically for the giant lemons they use to make limoncello. These lemons can easily grow to be larger than one's head; see them in person today.
Accommodations - Agriturismo Giardini di Vigliano

 

Day 5 - Sorrento

Enjoy a free day to do as you please. Opt to visit local villages, explore Sorrento, sign up for a full-day cooking class, or to spend some time on the beach.
For those looking to take a stroll around town, start at the Piazza Tasso to get a feel for the hustle and bustle of local life. Make your way to the Basilica, shop for handmade goods such as ceramics and lace-work, or stop at one of the lively restaurants around the square for a bite of Neapolitan fare (seafood, anyone?). Then head down to the marinas for some time by the sea.
Accommodations - Agriturismo Giardini di Vigliano

 

Day 6 - Capri

Enjoy a day trip to the island of Capri and enjoy free time to explore. Board a ferry to Capri. Hop on board the 'funicolare' to explore Capri Town's piazza. Opt to walk along the trails on the island, go swimming, or brush shoulders with the more well-off island inhabitants at fancy shops.
The Caprese salad is named after this town, and, of course, there is also locally produced limoncello, made with the island's lemons. Visit the stunning Blue Grotto, stroll through the town, or simply relax and take in views of the blue water and striking limestone sea stacks.

Agriturismo Giardini di Vigliano

The Farmhouse of Giardini di Vigliano offers comfortable and exceptionally clean rooms. After crossing the narrow, long path under the fragrant lemon pergola, guests of the Agriturismo near Sorrento, are warmly welcomed by Giuseppe Nunziata (Peppino to friends) who, with his wife Ida, their children Luigi and Valentina and their daughter in law, Natasha, are dedicated to the meticulous care of running the farm in the Sorrento Peninsula, the garden and the cultivation of lemons and the preparation of traditional Mediterranean dishes. Most of the authentic dishes that make up the menu are in fact prepared just as they were done in the past. Ida and her children make pasta by hand, use their own cow's milk to make mozzarella and, once a week, prepare delicious bread that is handmade and cooked in a wood oven, all in a location that is a land kissed by the sun and the sea.
