New Year 2019 on Ischia and the Amalfi Coast Back

  • Tour Code : TUR-01458
  • Type : Private
  • Duration : 7 days
  • Departs from : Naples
  • Meeting Place : Naples airport

Description

Your tour will start in Naples, at either the train station or the airport, when one of our local drivers will meet you to take you to the port and the ferry to the volcanic island of Ischia, where 4 days of total relaxation await you at the 5-star Terme Mare Blu.

During your time on the island you will be free to explore as much or as little as you want.  The island offers wonderful views and exquisite nature including botanic gardens, beautiful beaches and vineyards.  Your hotel is a stone's throw from the shopping streets of Ischia Porto where you can find streets filled with Christmas lights, markets and wonderful cribs.  Nativity scenes are popular throughout Italy, but nowhere more so than in Campania where it has developed into an elaborate art form, so don't be surprised to find a whole town, often complete with waterfalls, mills, pizzaioli and even famous footballers, surrounding the stable!

Your stay at the spa-hotel includes breakfast, dinner and access to the Roman Path in the spa.  As well as thermal waters of this volcanic region, the baths also offer numerous treatments particularly for dermatological and respiratory ailments (approved by the Italian Health Ministry) under the supervision of a doctor, which can be booked throughout your stay.

After 4 days of island paradise, you will head back to the mainland and down to Sorrento on the other tip of the Bay of Naples for 2 nights at the 5-star Parco dei Prinicipi Hotel, which stands on a cliff with a stunning view out over the bay.

The next day, our driver will meet you after breakfast for a private tour of the Amalfi Coast.  Your local driver-guide will be able to show you the best vantage points, point out the best of the towns you pass through like Amalfi, Positano and Ravello, where you should visit the beautiful gardens of Villa Rufolo.  Although many places are only open in high-season, your driver will be able to take you off the tourist trail to the restaurants where locals go, to get some great local food and wine, before taking you back to your hotel.

On the final day, your driver will take you back to Naples in time to catch your train or flight.

Pricing for standard rooms starts from €2282 per person for 7 days.  This itinerary can be customized in any way that would best suit you.  Should you wish to upgrade to a superior room or suite with a sea-view, add other tours or additional days, please let our travel experts know and they will be happy to adapt the program for you.
