What you will visit:

Sorrento (on your own)
The coastal town of Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples. Explore the cobblestone side streets and public squares, such as Piazza Tasso and Piazza Antiche Mura with its lively atmosphere. Sorrento is a prime place for shoppers and ambience seekers alike. The bustling Corso Italia, a flower-lined main boulevard, showcases charming cafes and designer boutiques. Stroll down to the picture-perfect Sorrento pier and take in the fresh sea breezes or go beachcombing along the rocky shoreline.

Mt. Vesuvius Vineyard
Delight in a wine and food pairing at a scenic vineyard located on the slopes of Mt. Vesuvius. An engaging vineyard tour introduces you to the geologic conformation of Vesuvius's slopes, the rare characteristics of the volcanic soil, and how these and a marvelous microclimate come together in one of Italy's most interesting wine producing regions. You'll also visit the cellars for insight into the process by which the grapes are turned into the vintner's liquid creations.


What you will see along the way:
Your scenic, narrated drive back to Naples travels along the Autostrada. Your experienced guide will fill you in on the vibrant history of the capital city of Italy's Campania region as you gaze out over the country's second most populated city.

Tasting:
After your tour of the winery, you'll savor a snack of local specialties like bruschetta with Vesuvian olive oil and a taste of salami and cheese. Enjoy a Lacryma Christi white, red or rose, Aglianico, Falanghina, and apricot grappa distilled from the grape pips from Vesuvius.

Special Notes:

Wine is available for purchase. Visa and MasterCard accepted.
