Rome, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast

“A wonderful holiday with a varied itinerary that included history, spectacular scenery and sunny beaches. Rail travel was smooth and easy and we had some wonderful meals. The hotel in Sorrento was great but its breakfast coffee was best avoided - appalling for Italy - but that was the only poor aspect of a really good time. Tour manager was wonderful.

“We had a great time travelling from top to toe in Italy. The holiday was fast paced but each destination was worth the visit. We had excellent tour guides, excellent hotels in good locations and a superb tour manager who was well organised and well informed.
