What to expect

Explore the ruins of Herculaneum, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world's most preserved ancient cities. Herculaneum was buried under volcanic material after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD but, unlike the nearby site of Pompeii, a lot of the town was preserved: roofs, beds, doors, food and even skeletons.

Walk the cobbled streets of the archeological area with an archaeologist and get a glimpse of what life was like before the devastating eruption. Explore intact buildings at your own pace, see well-preserved frescoes, and imagine the daily rituals of those using shops, public gymnasiums and thermal baths that can still be visited today.

    Capri & Anacapri from Amalfi Coast

    If the Amalfi Coast is the business, then Capri is showbusiness. Journey over by hydrofoil, then switch to a small boat for an island tour from the sea, complete with swim stops and prosecco. In the afternoon, there's a minibus tour up to Anacapri for some wow-factor views over the Amalfi Coast. One of the highlights is the Phoenician Steps. This steep flight of 921 stone steps leads all the way down to Capri port where you've free time to join the jet-setters in the bars, cafés and label-laden boutiques, or check out its half-dozen dinky baroque churches.
