Monday    DAY 1 :   ARRIVAL TO ROME

DAY 2 :    TREVI FOUNTAIN, SPANISH STEPS, VATICAN CITY & LOTS MORE

Meet our guide in the morning for an orientation walk through the winding Roman back streets to discover the most famous sites including Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. Don't forget to throw a coin and make a wish! Be prepared to walk all day as there is no better way to explore a new city like Rome than on foot.  Reach finally the Vatican city , house of the Pope, where you will be left free to enjoy the rest of the day to visit St. Peter's Basilica at your own leisure. If you wish to visit the Vatican museums and the Sistine chapel with a licensed tour guide for extra info about some of the world's most famous paintings and sculptures, book our exciting but informative 2h walking tour which includes the skip the lines entry tickets to the museums.

DAY 3 :    FREE FULL DAY IN ROME

If you wish to book our guided tour inside the site with a licensed tour guide, make sure you add it to your booking or inform the guide on day one. This tour comes really recommended because as locals we know how important this historical site is and how important it is to have a licensed tour guides of Pompeii showing you around and pointing out the main parts instead of looking out at old rocks without knowing what you are looking at.

After Pompeii we will continue towards Sorrento driving along the coast with spectacular views of the Vesuvio. Our accommodation for the next 3 nights will be in a camping village located on top of the hill with a terrific scenery of Sorrento and the coast.
