Southern Italy Escape (KIN)

9 Day Tour from Sorrento to Naples

2023 Tour Details

Imagine spending time in Italy’s most beloved locations without the higher costs and bigger crowds associated with busy travel season. Join us on a cultural and culinary adventure of Southern Italy’s wonderful gems. Start with a stroll in Sorrento, one of the most beautiful settings facing the Bay of Naples; travel to the Adriatic coastal resort of Trani; and overnight in the Apulian capital of Bari on the heel of Italy’s “boot.” Be sure to sample the local focaccia after your tour of St. Nicolas’ Church! In Alberobello, take a tour of the traditional Trullo houses—whitewashed, circular homes, with classic conical roofs. Admire the lacy stone buildings and baroque squares of Lecce, and visit the Duomo and Santa Croce Basilica to understand why Lecce is called the “Florence of the South.” A scenic drive brings you to the rocky outcrop of Matera—a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visit Casa Grotto to learn all about the Sassi houses, thought to be among the first human settlements in Italy.

Continue your Italian vacation to the charismatic Naples, birthplace of Neapolitan pizza. Here, enjoy guided sightseeing, which includes a visit to the fascinating Archaeological Museum. Join us in the off season and escape to Southern Italy’s off-the-beaten-path locales.
