Naples / Capri (Sorrento), Italy

Perched above the Bay of Naples, Sorrento is home to one of Italy’s most picturesque harbors. This cliff-top treasure boasts shops selling handcrafted souvenirs, a bevy of beaches and hiking trails that lead you through lemon and olive groves. Take a ferry to the Isle of Capri, where you can enjoy a boat trip to the Blue Grotto sea cave or ride a chairlift to the islet’s highest point. Naples, 30 miles north of Sorrento, is the birthplace of one of the country’s tastiest creations: pizza. Grab a Neapolitan slice to fuel up for your visits to the town’s historic center; the San Carlo theater, the longest continuously active venue for public opera in the world; and the Castel dell’Ovo, the oldest standing fortification in the city. Can’t-miss excursions include outings to Pompeii, which was buried in volcanic ash by Mount Vesuvius’ eruption in A.D. 79, and drives along the stunning Amalfi Coast.
