There are few better places in the world to visit in the off-season than Italy. With this package from Great Value Vacations, you can enjoy a relaxing time on the beautiful Amalfi Coast in scenic Sorrento - and end with 2 nights in exciting Rome.

Sorrento. The name conjures images of breathtaking scenery and a relaxed and enticing lifestyle. You'll start your journey there by picking up your rental car in Naples and then heading south along the east coast towards the beautiful Sorrentine Peninsula and the beautiful Hotel Gardenia.

Located within walking distance of the beach and just a short stroll from the old town center, the Hotel Gardenia, with its stunning views of the Bay of Naples, is the perfect spot to relax and let your cares melt away.

While Sorrento will be “home” for 5 nights, you’re free (and encouraged) to explore the magnificent Amalfi Coast. Among the myriad options that await you are catching the ferry to Capri and exploring the miraculous Blue Grotto or head to Naples and visit Vesuvius and the ruins of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Adventure a little farther south and you can explore the many lovely towns that dot the Amalfi Coast.

You'll then journey to just outside Rome where you'll spend 2 nights at the superior 4-star Villa Vecchia Hotel in the Roman hills in Frascati. Just 30 minutes from the heart of Rome, with the Villa Vecchia as your home base in a park filled with Roman ruins, you can make your way to Rome and visit such famous sites at The Vatican, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and more.

Amalfi Activities


The southern tip of Italy and the beautiful Amalfi Coast attract visitors with stunning scenery. Beaches, volcanic mountains, drives with views and hairpin turns, quaint towns, the ruins of Pompeii, and bustling Naples are just a few reasons to visit.

Amalfi Coast: This stretch of coastline on the southern coast of Italy's Sorrentine Peninsula is a popular tourist destination that features warm summers and mild winters. It is also known as a prime spot for lemon cultivation, and as a result the production of limoncello liquor.

Capri: Italy's most famous island is a postcard-worthy paradise that features a dramatic mountain that appears to soar out of the sea. A favored retreat for artists, movie stars and other celebrities, Capri is famous for its Blue Grotto, a sea cave that is flooded by sunlight, and is easily traversed by foot.

Sorrento: Easily reachable from Naples, Sorrento overlooks the Bay of Naples and is a pretty town with beautiful coastal views. A scenic route known as the "Amalfi Drive" connects Sorrento and Amalfi on a narrow road along high cliffs, and you can catch ferries from Sorrento to the island of Capri.

Amalfi: At the mouth of a deep ravine at the foot of Monte Cerreto is Amalfi, a town known for its dramatic cliffs and coastal scenery. Once the capital of the maritime republic known as the Duchy of Amalfi, today it is an important tourist destination, along with nearby towns including Positano and Ravello.

Mount Vesuvius: This stratovolcano at the Bay of Naples is the only volcano on the European mainland to have erupted in the last hundred years. But it is best known for its eruption in 79 AD that led to the burying of the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Today, the area around Vesuvius is a national park and the summit is open to visitors, with a small network of paths is maintained by park authorities.

Paestum: The main reason tourists come to Paestum is to see the most complete Doric temples still standing in Italy. Archaeologist know little about the Greek colony that started in the 7th century BC, and was known as Poseidonia, but three major temples, a forum and an amphitheater remain.

Piazza del Plebiscito (Naples): The center of modern Naples, the Piazza del Plebiscito is home to a huge domed church (San Francesco di Paola) that mimics the Pantheon in Rome, as well as the 17th-century Royal Palace (Palazzo Reale), full of magnificent marble, tapestries and frescoes.

Museo Nazionale di Capodimonte (Naples): This palace-turned-museum sits in the middle of a park that was once a hunting preserve for the Bourbon kings. Today, the museum is a repository of Neapolitan painting and decorative arts, with works by some of the best Italian artists (including Botticelli, Bellini, Parmigianino, Reni, Caravaggio, Van Dyck and more).

Museo Archeologico Nazionale (Naples): Naples' archeological museum is a remodeled 16th-century palace that contains a large collection of Roman artifacts from Pompeii, as well as Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Renaissance collections. Most interesting is the Farnese Collection, which includes engraved gems and the famous Farnese Marbles.

Duomo and Museum of the Treasure of San Gennaro (Naples): The main church of Naples has two chapels that are beautifully frescoed and have intricate mosaic floors. Underneath, excavation of a Roman site is underway. Nearby, the San Gennaro Treasury Museum has art exhibits.

Spaccanapoli (Naples): The main street that divides Naples cuts through the heart of the historic center. Many churches, shops and important buildings line the street, which is almost always teeming with people. From the main artery, a string of narrow, winding streets unfold, making this area fun to wander around.

Santa Chiara (Naples): This religious complex includes a church, monastery, tombs and an archeological museum. Built in the early 14th century in the Gothic style, the church was decorated in the 18th century in Baroque. The garden makes for a lovely visit and a museum houses information on the church's history and the archeological findings that have taken place over the years.

 

Excavations of Pompeii (Pompeii): Once an important industrial and commercial town, Pompeii was destroyed and completely buried during a two-day catastrophic eruption of the volcano Mount Vesuvius in the year 79 AD. It was lost for nearly 1,700 years before its accidental rediscovery, and since then excavation has provided insight into the life of a city at the height of the Roman Empire. Today, nearly 2.5 million visitors come to the UNESCO World Heritage site each year to explore the ruins.

Villa dei Misteri (Pompeii): This well-preserved ruin of a Roman villa is close to the Pompeii excavations and worth a visit. The villa sustained only minor damage during the volcanic eruption, and the majority of its walls, ceilings and frescoes survived largely undamaged.

Terme Suburbane (Pompeii): Outside the walls of Pompeii are these privately owned thermal baths that opened to the public in 2002. The interior is decorated with beautiful frescoes and mosaics.

 

Rome Activities:

With a history that spans 2,500 the capital city of Italy deserves its nickname of "the Eternal City." Rome's historic center is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and the Vatican Museums and Roman Colosseum are among the world's 50 most visited tourist destinations. The rest of the city serves up the visual treats of ruins, fountains, palaces, churches, basilicas and other monuments in addition to all you'd expect in a modern metropolis.
 
What to see:
 
Colosseum
 
The famous elliptical amphitheater sits in the heart of ancient Rome just east of the Foro Romano. Considered to be one of the greatest works of Roman architecture and engineering, the theater seated 50,000 spectators and was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles. It's the iconic symbol of Imperial Rome.
 
Arco di Costantino
 
This triumphal arch between the Colosseum and Palatine Hill was erected in 315 AD to commemorate Constantine I's victory over Maxentius at the Battle of Milvian Bridge.
 
Foro Romano
 
In the center of Rome, the Roman Forum is a rectangular plaza that is surrounded by the ruins of several important ancient government buildings. For centuries this was the center of public life and the seat of the most powerful government in the world. Although entrance is free, it is suggested you purchase an audio guide in order to understand the hundreds of ruins in this area.
 
Capitoline Hill
 
The Piazza del Campidoglio, designed by Michelangelo in 1538, is the main attraction at Capitoline Hill. One of the famous seven hills of Rome, the English word "capitol" actually derives from Capitoline. Today, there are a few ancient ground-level ruins here, most of which are almost entirely covered up by medieval and Renaissance palaces that now house the Capitoline Museums, a group of archeological museums.
 
The Vatican City
 
Packed with more history and artwork than most cities in the world, The Vatican is the center of Catholicism and its own sovereign city-state in a walled enclave within the city of Rome. Over 70 million people visit The Vatican City each year to walk through St Peter's Basilica and Square and The Vatican Museum, home to the Sistine Chapel.

St. Peter's Basilica and Piazza di San Pietro
 
St. Peter's Square is a grand, elliptical plaza boasting 284 Doric columns and a central obelisk that was transported from Egypt to Rome in 37 AD. But the focal point is St. Peter's, the largest Christian church in the world and mother church of the Roman Catholic faith. Don't miss the artworks by Italy's greatest artists inside including those by Raphael and Michelangelo.
 
The Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel
 
The Vatican Museum is the largest museum complex in the world, with a collection of art that spans 3,000 years. Most famous is the Sistine Chapel, decorated with Michelangelo's frescos, but there are countless treasures on display. The museum is so massive and popular it's organized so visitors follow a one-way route.

Pantheon
 
The only building from ancient Rome that has survived intact is the Pantheon, built in 27 BC. The 142-foot-wide and 142-foot-high building takes the shape of a perfect sphere resting in a cylinder, and is among the architectural wonders of the world. Since the Renaissance, the Pantheon has been used as a burial place for important Italians, and artist Raphael and two Italian kings are among those buried here.
 
Piazza Navona
 
Upscale cafes ring this lively plaza and meeting spot, but the focal point is three lavish fountains that were the pride of Baroque Rome. At the center is the famous Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, while the southern end has the Fontana del Moro with four Tritons and at the northern end is the Fontana del Nepttuno. The plaza is a great place to sit and watch street performers as you enjoy a cappuccino or some gelato.
 
Fontana di Trevi
 
The Trevi Fountain is the largest Baroque fountain in the city and one of the most famous fountains in the entire world. Legend has it if visitors throw a coin into the fountain they will return to Rome, and some say two coins will lead to a new romance and three will ensure either a marriage or divorce. An estimated 3,000 euros (upward of $4,000) are thrown into the fountain each day.
 
Scalinato di Spagna and Piazza di Spagna
 
The 135 "Spanish Steps" climb a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna and the Trinitá dei Monti church at the top. The widest staircase in Europe, the stairs were built in the early 18th century to link the Bourbon Spanish Embassy with the church located above. The Piazza di Spagna often hosts concerts and is famous for its Baroque fountain, Fontana della Barcaccia ("Fountain of the Old Boat") that is credited to Pietro Bernini, father of the famous Gian Lorenzo Bernini.
