Tour Itinerary

If you're looking for a compact and affordable Italy Vacation - Vesuvius Tour is perfect! The itinerary is meticulously crafted by Steve Perillo and his team to run like a 'Swiss Watch' and be lots of fun too!

DAY 1 - DEPART USA - ROME

Boarding your overnight flight, you’re off on a journey that will remain etched in your memory forever!

DAY 2 - ARRIVE IN ROME - AFTERNOON AT LEISURE - DINNER IN HOTEL

Benvenuti a Roma! We are pleased to offer complimentary transfers from the Rome airport to your hotel at scheduled times. Your Perillo representative will be at the airport to greet you.

This afternoon you will have free time to relax or better yet, explore the Eternal City. There’s so much to see and do! Tonight, we meet our tour leader for a welcome drink, followed by dinner in our hotel.

DAY 3 - ROME - VATICAN MUSEUM - SISTINE CHAPEL - ST. PETER'S BASILICA - DINNER OUT

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you certainly can’t see it in one—but we’ll try to show you as much as possible in the next few days!

This morning, we travel ten-minutes to another country—Vatican City. With our expert local guide we’ll tour the Vatican Museums, a massive collection of ancient Greek sculptures, medieval tapestries and Renaissance paintings. Our visit culminates in the Sistine Chapel, the room where the Pope is elected.

Next we visit St. Peter’s Basilica, by far the largest church in Christendom. We’ll see Michelangelo’s Pietà, sculpted when he was just 24, as well as Bernini’s seven-story bronze canopy located above the main altar.

Tonight, we’ll recount our explorations with good food and wines fit for an Emperor at a local Roman restaurant!

(Please note that the visit of St. Peter’s Basilica is subject to availability based on the events planned by the Pope.)

DAY 4 - ROME CITY SIGHTSEEING - AFTERNOON AT LEISURE

Hail Caesar! All aboard our chariot for a relaxing, panoramic driving tour of Imperial Rome including the Roman Forum, downtown ancient Rome, the Circus Maximus, and the Great Synogogue, built in the heart of the Jewish quarter.

Then we’ll enter the Colosseum, reliving the brutal entertainment of the gladiators and the lions, refereed by the Emperor himself.

Tonight, we thought you’d enjoy a dinner on your own. Ask your tour guide for a nearby recommendation, or venture out and explore the local restaurants in Rome! Be sure to try a Supplì, a quintessential Roman specialty: Fried ball of rice filled with tomato sauce, meat and melted mozzarella.

DAY 5 - ROME - POMPEII - SORRENTO - DINNER IN HOTEL

After a delicious breakfast in the hotel, we’re off on the beautiful drive south to Pompeii! On the way, we approach the view of the Bay of Naples, birthplace of Caruso, Sophia Loren, Bel Canto and ‘O Sole Mio.

We travel back to the Pompeii of 97 AD. A city perfectly preserved by the ash that rained down from Mt. Vesuvius. You’ll see the tragic fossils of the people trying to escape with their children and dogs, and streets, homes and stores that are all amazingly intact.

This evening we enjoy a relaxing dinner in our hotel.

DAY 6 - SORRENTO - CAPRI - SORRENTO - DINNER OUT

This morning, we board our speedy jetfoil to the world’s most enchanting island—Capri. We’ll enjoy a private boat tour around the island (weather permitting). We’ll cruise by the magnificent Faraglioni, Capri’s iconic rock formations which tower above the Mediterranean Sea.

Next, we visit one of the lesser-known but equally beautiful sea caves, the Grotta Bianca. Then we’ll have free time to explore the island on our own, or take advantage of a special optional excursion with our tour leader.

Later this afternoon, we sail back and have some time to relax before heading out to a great Neapolitan restaurant for dinner.

DAY 7 - SORRENTO - FLORENCE - LUNCH & CITY TOUR - DINNER IN HOTEL

This morning, after a delicious breakfast, we board a train to Florence! We’ll arrive in time for a lunch and ice cream tasting at our hotel followed by a walking tour of the historical center of this most famous of all Renaissance cities!

We’ll visit the majestic Duomo (complex) built in 1296, Giotto’s Bell Tower and the Baptistery with its renowned Gates of Paradise doors.

We follow the medieval streets to the most striking square in Florence, Piazza della Signoria, Michelangelo’s final resting place.

“Breathtaking” is the only word to describe one’s first view of Michelangelo’s David. Yes, it’s quite large and detailed. But the real magic is in how Michelangelo transformed a lifeless rock into a man—full of pride, wary of his adversary, yet quietly confident. All with just a hammer and a chisel!

Tonight, we enjoy a Florentine dinner in our hotel with fine wines.

*In the event of a train strike or such problems, we will travel to Florence by bus.

DAY 8 - FLORENCE - EXCURSION TO VENICE - SPECIAL VENETIAN LUNCH - FLORENCE

The Grand Canal is just a short train ride away from Florence. Should we go? … SI! ANDIAMO A VENEZIA!

There is no normal life in Venice. Here, everything and everyone floats luxuriously with a sense of freedom, never tormented by traffic or even the sound of a horn.

Your guide will show you all the sights—St. Mark’s Square, the Basilica, and the Bridge of Sighs. Just around the corner from St. Mark’s Square, we’ll enjoy a special Venetian lunch in a town renowned for its seafood specialties.

This evening we return to Florence for dinner on your own. Make sure to try Pappa al Pomodoro, a rustic Tuscan soup made with tomatoes, garlic, onions and of course, Tuscan bread!

DAY 9 - FLORENCE - SAN GIMIGNANO - OIL & WINE TASTING AND LUNCH - FLORENCE

Our last day together will be at our favorite winery! You’ll visit the Tenuta Torciano winery in Tuscany and meet our dear friend, Pierluigi Giachi, the world’s most enchanting sommelier. You’ll learn about the grape, the nose, food pairings and most importantly—which glass to use with each wine! You’ll also get to experience an olive oil and truffle oil tasting…and of course have some fresh bread with it!

This will all be followed by a fabulous lunch and wine tasting. Salute! Enjoy the remainder of the day and evening on your own, perhaps shopping for last minute souvenirs!

DAY 10 - FLIGHT HOME - FLORENCE - USA

This morning board your flight home, arriving in the USA the same day. Unless, of course, you have chosen to extend your stay! A warm Grazie for traveling with the Perillo family and please return soon.

It's about a 4 hour drive. We recommend taking the train if you plan to do that trip on your own.

Solo travelers are quoted a single supplement (an additional fee) as a separate line item. They still experience the same tour with the same excursions meals and hotel stays.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.
