Meet at the airport at 11:45 am for our Air Malta flight to Naples departing at 1:45 pm. Upon arrival, at around 3:10 pm, we shall be transferred to our 4* hotel in Sorrento – Hotel Ascot. Check-in followed by dinner (extra) and a familiarisation walk.
Sunday 10 February
Full day optional excursion to the small island of Capri. We shall walk for around 10 minutes to reach Piazza Tasso from where we descend to the port (by lift) to catch the catamaran to Capri (catamaran is extra). Capri is seriously beautiful. There’s barely a grubby building or untended garden to blemish the splendour. Steep cliffs rise majestically from an impossibly blue sea; elegant villas drip with wisteria and bougainvillea. Even the trees seem to be carefully manicured. On arrival at Marina Grande, we will take the funicular (extra – to be paid on the spot) which climbs uphill through lemon groves and will drop us in Capri’s Piazzetta. The small quaint streets found up here are better explored on foot. One can either take the funicular (extra – to be paid on the spot) up to Anacapri for one of the most breath-taking views or the public transport. Dinner (extra) at the hotel.
