Itinerary

Expand All

Day 1 Uk - Naples

Location: Minori

Accommodation Name: Hotel Villa Romana

Meals Included: D

We'll depart on our flight to Italy today and transfer to our hotel in Minori. This delightful village on the Amalfi Coast is surrounded by the deep-blue waters of the Mediterranean, a pretty beach and hills dotted with lemon and orange groves. Later, we'll get into the festive spirit when we enjoy a welcome drink before dinner at the hotel.
Lemons grow in abundance on the Amalfi Coast, where year-round mild temperatures, volcanic soil and just the right amount of rain combine to produce fruit with a unique sweetness. These lemons are used to produce the famous limoncello liqueur and we'll sample some after dinner, alongside lemon-flavoured chocolate.

Day 2 Christmas Eve, Pompeii & Ravello

Location: Minori

Accommodation Name: Hotel Villa Romana

Meals Included: B, D

Pompeii is the Roman town which was frozen in time by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79AD and on today's tour we'll see its fascinating collection of ruins. As we wander through the streets we'll see villas decorated with frescos and brightly coloured mosaics, and highlights such as the remarkable Roman baths and spectacular amphitheatre. Our tour then continues to the clifftop town of Ravello, which is perched high above Amalfi and offers spectacular views. There's free time to look around Ravello at leisure and maybe take in the wonderful gardens of Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo.
Back at our hotel, dinner this evening is followed by traditional festive singing and some delicious Christmas pastries.

Day 3 Christmas Day, Salerno

Location: Minori

Accommodation Name: Hotel Villa Romana

Meals Included: B, L, D

After a leisurely morning, we'll gather to enjoy Christmas lunch and then make our way to Salerno. When we arrive, a walking tour will introduce us to the city's historic centre and atmospheric Christmas markets. Then, as darkness falls, we'll see the wonderful Luci D'Artista, the spectacular artists' lights which fill the streets, piazzas and gardens. These works of art usually follow four main themes and are sure to be an enchanting sight.
We'll return to the hotel in time for dinner this evening.

Day 4 Boxing Day, Sorrento & The Amalfi Coast

Location: Minori

Accommodation Name: Hotel Villa Romana

Meals Included: B, D

Sorrento, our first call, is a lively resort set above the Bay of Naples which has long been a haunt of the rich and famous. With free time for lunch and independent exploration, you'll get the chance to see what all the fuss is about!
Later we'll drive along the scenic Amalfi coastline; as we travel back to Minori, we'll briefly stop at La Madonnina for a panoramic view of Positano - a photogenic town poised on towering cliffs. We then continue to the town of Amalfi, which is beautifully situated between the mountains and the sea. Its impressive Romanesque cathedral is said to hold the remains of St. Andrew, so maybe ascend the flight of steps and take a peek inside.
After time to freshen up, we'll gather as a group and enjoy a farewell dinner tonight.

Day 5 Naples - Uk

After breakfast, we'll transfer to the airport for our flight back to the UK.

All aspects of the trip were professionally handled including the pick-up and drop-off chauffeur service. First experience of a Just You holiday but I would have no hesitation in booking another. Other fellow travellers had experienced various trips with Just You and they were happy to recommend your service. I think the reassurance your organisation gives to people travelling alone, sometimes for the first time, is a very positive advertisement for using your company.
