If you are looking for a memorable trip among the most fascinating places in Italy, then this tour is just what you need!

An incredible journey through millennia of history which ‘invaded’ the city of Rome, a veritable outdoor museum where it is really difficult to choose what to see and how many days to stop; and Naples, a unique territory that has seen a succession of dominations, from the Greek-Roman to the Norman, then Spanish and Bourbon.

And Amalfi coast, ‘a palette’ of colors and wonderful views, a continuous succession of promontories and inlets, bays and fjords, interspersed with pebble beaches and rocks where variegated villages appear and which characterize the entire coast, from Amalfi to Positano and to Ravello.

And finally Matera, rewarded the 2019 European capital of culture, famous for the Sassi, ancient dwellings which had been populated since the Hellenistic age, and today UNESCO World Heritage Site.

An unmissable holiday which crosses the center and the south of Italy and which will delight you with its landscapes, its millennial history and a baggage of culture as only the ‘Bel Paese’ can give.

Rome

Rome, Naples, Amalfi Coast And Matera

Rome is the city with the highest concentration of ancient and architectural heritage in the world; its historical center, overlapping testimonies of almost three millennia, is an expression of the artistic and cultural patrimony of the western European world and has been included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Symbols of this magnificent city are the Colosseum, the largest amphitheater in the Roman world, recognized in 2007 as one of the seven wonders of the modern world (unique in Europe); the Dome of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, which dominates the whole city and symbolizes the Christian world.

Unmissable are a stop in Piazza del Popolo to which some of the most famous shopping streets, such as Via del Babuino, are connected and which lead to Piazza di Spagna at the foot of the famous Trinità dei Monti steps.

For art lovers but also for those who love nature, you can not miss a visit to the Galleria Borghese Museum and the gardens of Villa Borghese: the interior of the Gallery contains works from a unique collection of paintings and sculptures, a real gift to visitors who can admire works of Caravaggio, Bernini, Canova, Tiziano and Raffaello. A pleasant walking along the park, perhaps aboard a characteristic rickshaw, will be a real treat to carve out some relaxing time while remaining in the heart of Rome.

Don’t miss also a typical Italian breakfast with coffee or cappuccino and brioche, better if consumed in one of the many bars and pastry shops that animate the city and offer wonderful views.

Or let yourself be overwhelmed by the aromas of the typical Roman cuisine, tasting for instance the
renowned jewish artichokes or the lamb chops.

Naples

Rome, Naples, Amalfi Coast And Matera

It is not easy to know Naples, an intricate and beautiful city with an energy that at times is confused between the hubbub of the streets at peak times and in the animated chatter among the alleys, at the coffee counter, at the pizzeria tables, at the crowd on public transport.

The historic center of Naples “must” be discovered on foot:  “Spaccanapoli” is the heart of the old city. The walk could preferably start from the Spanish Quarter and ends at Forcell, unmissable is a visit to the Church of Gesù Nuovo or to the Monastery of Santa Chiara.

A place that has always been a symbol of Naples is Piazza del Plebiscito, which offers a unique view of the Royal Palace with the statues of eight of the most important sovereigns who reigned over Naples.

Discover also the “underground Naples”, the most famous underground route in Naples to visit the hidden heart of the city with its Greek and Roman influences and, above all, relive the tragic days of the Second World War, when around 40.000 Neapolitans took refuge underground to escape Allied bombing and German retaliation.

To admire the most suggestive view of Naples, treat yourself to a walk on the promenade of Via Caracciolo with a view of Castel Dell’Ovo, the most ancient Castle in Naples,  and the Maschio Angioino, an important fortress in the past and now Civic Museum of the city.

For lovers of the culinary art, it is unthinkable to take a trip to Naples without tasting the typical Neapolitan sfogliatelle, the babas which are both traditional sweets,  and above all the real Neapolitan pizza!

Amalfi Coast

Rome, Naples, Amalfi Coast And Matera

The Amalfi coast cannot be told, all its splendor must be experienced. There are two elements that characterize this enchanting territory: the mountain and the sea, it is a continuous succession of headlands and inlets, bays and fjords, interspersed with pebble beaches and rocks. The road that connects all the towns of the Costa d’Amalfi was built in the Bourbon period, more precisely in the first half of the nineteenth century and has always been considered one of the most beautiful roads in Italy.

There are 13 municipalities located on a strip of land kissed by the sun and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, to name just a few: Amalfi, town that gives its name to the coast, the first of the four maritime republics which was for a long period the crossroads of trade with the far East. Ravello, with its postcard-like landscapes, ‘buen retiro’ of jet-set celebrities and home to one of the oldest Italian music festivals, the Ravello festival. Positano, worldly and fashionable, with its suggestive stairways, the lime-plastered houses and renowned for the handmade production of leather sandals. Praiano, with an authentic and genuine atmosphere where romantic sunsets can be admired and from which the island of Capri with its Faraglioni rocks and the Sorrento peninsula can be seen.

Matera

Rome, Naples, Amalfi Coast And Matera

Before concluding this journey in southern Italy, it is worth a visit to the city of Matera, the European capital of culture 2019, also called the city of stone. Mandatory stop are the rupestrian churches, which date back to the early Middle Ages and that were dug in the tuff by the monks;  the Cave house, typical peasant dwelling of the fifties, which still preserves its tradicional decor. The main attraction of Matera is the historic center of the city: Sassi of Matera, a collection of houses / caves, alleys and churches where populations lived since the Neolithic. A very important testimony of the past and a very suggestive place.

Also the Cathedral of Matera is worth a visit: it is located at the highest point of the city and was built in Romanesque style in the XIII century. If you plan to spend a few days in Matera sleeping there, which we highly recommend, live an unusual but unique experience: book your stay in a cave house completely carved into the rock but equipped with all the comforts of a hotel!
