Discover the cultural heritage and sparkling islands of the Amalfi Coast and the Gulf of Naples on this stunning trip, which combines gentle road cycling with some short climbs rewarding you with spectacular scenic views. Spend your evenings onboard a beautiful wooden gulet and cruise along the coast or to sparking islands, taking in the stunning views of the Amalfi coast or diving into the sea for refreshing swims. A trip to the world-famous city of Pompeii, which was buried after a volcanic eruption in 79AD, gets this tour off to a historic start.

Lemon groves, white-washed villages, sparking shores and stylish resorts characterise the Amalfi coast, with the town of Sorrento a star attraction. You’ll cross the sea to the historic islands of Capri and Ischia, where you’ll find Roman ruins and thermal springs as well as stylish cafes and secret coves.
