Leaving Rome in a southerly direction we take the Highway of the
Sun crossing the fertile Roman countryside and the area known
as "Castelli Romani".
Approximately halfway along the highway we will be able to see
the Abbey of Montecassino noted for its famous battle and
complete destruction during the second World War.
Arriving in Naples we will board the jet boat and after
about 45 minutes we will land at the Port of Marina Grande
on the Island of Capri. Here we will then board motorboats
and enter the Blue Grotto (if weather and sea conditions
permit). By minibuses we will drive then through the winding streets
of the island reaching the tiny village of Anacapri situated
at 280mt above the sea level from where we will have a wonderful
view of the bay of Naples. Lunch in a typical restaurant.
After lunch we will have some free time to take unforgettable
photographs and purchase local products. We then return to Marina
Grande to board the boat back to Naples. Entering the harbour
of Naples don't miss the opportunity to admire the outstanding
Maschio Angioino, fortress of the XII century, the Certosa
of San Martino and the Royal Palace. After disembarking
we will take our coach for the return trip to Rome. After approx
3 hours we will reach Rome. Return to, or nearby your Hotel.
Useful information: During the journey from Rome to Naples,
it will not always be possible to make a stop, but the boats for
Capri have bar and restroom facilities. We would reccomend that
you wear comfortable clothes and shoes. We ask you to pay particular
attention to your guide and to wear sunglasses and sunhats in
the summer months to avoid any risk of sunstroke.
N.B: If the sea conditions are so bad as not to permit the
boats to leave from Naples to Capri, it will be necessary to substitute
this tour with the tour of Pompeii and the difference in price
will be reimbursed.
