Bucket List Destination: Amalfi Coast & Capri

Located in Italy’s Campania region, the Amalfi Coast begins some thirty miles south of Naples, on the southern side of the Sorrentino peninsula. The string of fabled towns that line Italy’s Amalfi Coast offer some of the most incredible coastal scenery in Europe. Connected by a winding ribbon of road, the villages cling to emerald mountains and overlook the sapphire sea. Here, precipitous mountains plunge into the sea, picturesque villages maintain the charm of a bygone era and miles of hiking trails offer travelers the opportunity to explore the area on foot.

Simply put, the Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful places in Italy.

This unforgettable 5-star land-based holiday will commence in Naples, home to the best coffee and pizza in the world. We will then move to the charming city of Sorrento, world-famous for its romantic atmosphere. From there we will make our way to the Amalfi Coast and to the island of Capri, re-known for its beaches and the stunning faraglioni.


This is a unique and special offering from VACAYA. Although it can stand alone as a land based vacation, it is perfectly situated between our Norwegian Fjords Cruise and our Venice Cruise. So if you’ve always wanted to emerge yourself in the Italian culture of the Amalfi Coast and Capri, there’s no better way to experience it than with VACAYA. And if you’re looking for the perfect post-Norwegian Fjords Cruise extension in the warmth of Southern Europe, OR to extend your Italian holiday prior to our Venice Cruise, OR to bridge the 6 nights between the 2 cruises, let VACAYA take you to one of the most magical places on earth…
