Paestum to Pozzuoli: the Bay of Naples and Beyond
October 9–16, 2017
Nature seems to have formed this coast in her most capricious mood. ...
She never seems to have gone seriously to work;
but to have devoted this spot to the most unlimited indulgence of caprice and frolic.
—Patrick Brydone on Naples, 1773
Unlimited indulgence of caprice and frolic is exactly what we have in mind for our October trip to the Bay of Naples. But breathtaking views, gourmet dining, and a luxury seaside hotel aren’t all. We’ll have fascinating archaeological visits, some to sites we’re sure you’ve never been. Contemplate the lifestyles of the rich and famous of antiquity with us, and learn from experts about the latest discoveries. Taste the best mozzarella (and meet the water buffaloes) and plenty of down-home Campanian food too.
The week-long trip includes four nights on the Sorrento peninsula (smell the lemons?), three nights in Naples itself (think pizza), and no worries.
Don’t be put off by lurid tales—Naples is friendly and beautiful, and we take extra care to ensure that your travel is hassle-free. You’ll be met at plane or train and whisked in comfort to join the group. All our travel is by private transport. All arrangements are made personally by Liz and Maureen, who, as on all Elifant trips, are with the group for the entire trip.
