Pompei and Capri from Rome
Our driver we'll meet you in Rome. You'll be chauffeured about 3 hours, then you'll reach Pompeii where you'll meet a private local licensed guide that take you on a fascinating two-hour tour through this amazing place. At the end of tour, your driver will pick you up right at the exit of the ruins and together with your private licensed guide will drive you to Sorrento, where you will catch the mid-day hydrofoil to the island. When you disembark the hydrofoil, your time on this magical island will begin. Then Take the funicular up to Capri Town and La Piazzetta, lined with wonderful old and new buildings, sidewalk cafes, and of course shops! Decide if you would like to visit the Gardens of Caesar Augustus or to the Punta Tragara, both very easy walks, or if you prefer something a little more challenging. If so, head up to the Villa Jovis to visit the ruins of Tiberius' most important imperial villa. Afterwards, you may choose to visit Anacapri, where you can pick between two adventures. For those unafraid of heights, a chair lift may be the absolute highlight of your day. It takes about 20 minutes to reach the top in single chairs silently gliding through the sky with the amazing vista below of the bluest Mediterranean seas and the whitest, highest cliffs with colourful houses perched in the most impossible places.
The second option takes you to Villa San Michele, the charming former home of Swedish doctor and philanthropist Axel Munthe (1857-1949) that Henry James called "the most fantastic beauty, poetry, and inutility that one had ever seen clustered together." The villa is set around Roman-style courtyards, marble walkways, and atriums.
Medieval choir stalls, Renaissance lecterns, and gilded statues of saints are all part of the setting, with some rooms preserving the doctor's personal memorabilia. A spectacular pergola path overlooking the entire Bay of Naples leads from the villa to the famous Sphinx Parapet, where an ancient Egyptian sphinx looks out toward Sorrento.
Either way, you will most certainly not want to leave when your time here is up. But don't miss the hydrofoil that will return you to Rome
