Day 1 UK - Rome: After arriving in Rome and checking in to your centrally located hotel (see our collection of hotels in Rome), spend the afternoon at the epic Colosseum, the largest amphitheatre in the Roman Empire and travel back in time to an era of bloody battles between gladiators, slaves and wild animals.
Day 2 Rome: Spend today visiting the Vatican; home to the world's largest church and the celebrated Sistine Chapel. Pre-book The Vatican and St. Peter's Basilica excursion and enjoy a guided tour around its fascinating museums and galleries. (Not available on Sundays, on Wednesdays St. Peter's Basilica will be visited from the outside).
Day 3 Rome: Appraise the magnificent architecture of The Pantheon; its impressive dome echoes that of St. Peter's Basilica and formed part of the largest concrete structure in the world up until the 20th century. In the evening, do as the Romans do and head for dinner in Trastavere, Rome's medieval quarter.
Day 4 Rome - Amalfi Coast: Leave the 'Eternal City' behind and travel to your chosen resort (approx. 3-4 hours) and fantastic hotel along the stunning Amalfi Coast (see our collection of hotels on the Amalfi Coast).
Day 5-10 Amalfi Coast: The Amalfi Coast is famed for its charming whitewashed towns, jagged cliff faces and scenic coastline; wherever you decide to stay you will discover an area rich in natural and historical beauty.
The town of Amalfi was once a powerful maritime republic whose wealthy past is reflected in its 9th century cathedral and beautiful mosaics and sculptures found in the local museum. If you're looking for a touch of class, head to the steep-stepped town of Positano where chic boutiques and exclusive restaurants are in abundance or soak up some culture at the Ravello Music Festival (the end of June to mid September).
For a more relaxing atmosphere the old fishing town of Maiori is set along the longest beach on the Amalfi Coast whilst Conca dei Marini is home to the Emerald Grotto sea cave and undersea 'Presepe', the scene of the birth of Christ.
Just across the water is the captivating island of Capri, pre-book the Capri and Anacapri excursion and enjoy a guided private minibus tour which includes a visit to Villa St. Michele museum and later the Garden of Augustus. There will also be time to browse the elegant island boutiques and take in the atmosphere of Piazza Umberto I.
Further inland are the ancient Greek Temples of Paestum and the ancient Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum, buried by the eruption of the deadly Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. (Pre-bookable excursions are available).
Day 11 Amalfi Coast - UK: Travel to Naples airport and fly back to the UK.

The Italian cities are the most characteristic in the world. I had the pleasure of visiting Venice, Florence and Rome in one trip. From experiencing a gondola trip on the blue lagoons of Venice, to lighting a candle in the breathtaking grand Duomo of Florence, ending with throwing a coin in the Trevi fountain wishing to return back to Rome, eachBeki Multi Centre Expert
