Paestum to Pozzuoli: the Bay of Naples and Beyond

October 9–16, 2017

Naples, Italy’s second city and gateway to the South, may have the most beautiful natural setting in Europe—and the biggest heart. Our week-long trip will cover the territory from Pozzuoli, at the western extremity of the Bay of Naples, down to the temples of Paestum some sixty miles to the south, on the Gulf of Salerno. Well spend four nights in a luxurious seaside hotel on the Sorrento Peninsula and three in a historic hotel in a beautiful residential part of Naples itself, meeting Michelin-starred chefs, local archaeologists, and a herd of water buffalo (and their owner!) along the way.

Led by Elizabeth (Liz) Bartman, an archaeologist, and Maureen Fant, a food writer, you will have the opportunity to explore the unique archaeology, food, and wine of Campania.
