Itineraries at this level will have slightly longer days, often returning to the hotel mid to late afternoon. The level of physical activity may be slightly increased, such as including a few walks or activities requiring children to be outside and active a little longer. Travelling is still however kept to a minimum and journeys (aside from airport transfers) are unlikely to be longer than 2 hours. Weather conditions - heat or cold - are more of a factor on trips at this level, for example spending time outside in the height of summer.

Is This Trip for You?

This trip is graded Level 2: leisurely/moderate. It is designed for ages 9 to 12 but is also suitable for ages 5 to 8 or 13 to 16 (depending on the departure date).

*Please note that from 2020 the trip will only be designed for ages 9 to 12 but will also be suitable for ages 13 to 16. Our goal is to have similarly-aged children on each departure, which allows the leader to better adapt the pace of the trip as required.

Our family activity levels are aimed at children in the primary or ‘Designed for’ age group. We are confident it is also suitable for those in the ‘Also for’ age range, however note if your child is in this secondary category they may find it either a little easier. Please see the family activity levels on our website for further information.

When grading our trips we consider multiple factors, the pace — how busy an itinerary is — and the level of activity involved. Then there’s the amount of time a family will spend travelling. The weather is an important factor too.

This holiday aims to show you the best parts of the Amalfi Coast using a mixture of private buses, boats and sightseeing on foot. Though there is no strenuous physical activity involved, some days will be busy and in summer the heat and humidity can be tiring. Travel time is kept to a minimum wherever possible (max. 2  hours bus time per day) and the private vehicles used are comfortable and with air-conditioning. 

On most days you will be back at the hotel at the end of the afternoon and you will have a couple of hours free before dinner to take some rest or enjoy the hotel's pool. There is also one free day and some time at leisure at the beach included in the itinerary.

There are two walks included in the trip. During the visit to Mount Vesuvius the vehicle will take you at an altitude of approx. 1000m and from there to the crater you will need to ascend on a path which is approx. 150 metres  long and quite steep in places. Along the Walk of the Gods you will be walking on a marked the path however the terrain can be rocky or uneven at times and there are parts which are a little exposed therefore not suitable for severe vertigo sufferers. This walk usually takes around 1.5 hours.

The kayaking excursion will last approximately 4 hours including stops. Each minor should be accompanied by one adult in a double kayak. No previous experience is necessary, but participants must be able to swim.

Please be prepared for some drives on winding coastal roads throughout the trip.

In unexpected weather conditions, the boat journeys may be replaced with minibuses. 

The family-run accommodation is comfortable with air-conditioning and private bathrooms and a small outdoor pool. For further details please see the relevant section below.

Following a review of all our trips we have categorised this trip as not suitable for full wheelchair users, but it may be suitable for other persons of reduced mobility. Please contact customer services to discuss the trip and your personal condition.

Group

The leader will accompany the group on all programmed activities, but due to Italian legislation is not allowed to guide groups around Pompeii and Vesuvius (local guides are available for hire). The leader will not always accompany the group on activities undertaken on the free day but he will offer advice and help with the arrangements of transfers and activities.

Land Only Itinerary

  • Day 1

    Start Agerola.

    This trip starts in the village of Bomerano, on the Agerola plains above the Amalfi Coast. Enjoy a warm welcome from local hosts, the Acampora family, before settling in. Land only clients can arrive at any time, although we do recommend joining the group transfer at the airport as public transport options to the hotel are limited.

    Meals included:
    Dinner
  • Day 2

    Boat trip from Amalfi to Positano; stroll among the winding streets of Positano.

    After a short private transfer to Amalfi (30mins), we take the boat along the coast to Positano, a near vertical town of colourful buildings reached by a network of ancient paths and tracks. During the journey we take in the beautiful classic views of the Amalfi Coast and once in Positano we will start exploring this picturesque town, strolling among its winding streets and there is time to visit the beautiful Cathedral, enjoy a swim in the blue sea or visit the unique boutiques for some great shopping opportunities. We will also enjoy an optional lunch in a pizzeria and a refreshing Italian gelato before returning in the late afternoon to Bomerano by boat and minibus.

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Dinner
  • Day 3

    Full day to visit impressive sites of Pompeii and Vesuvius.

    Today we descend from the Agerola hills and take a transfer (approx. 45mins) to Pompeii, once a thriving port town until Vesuvius’ catastrophic eruption spanning two days in 79AD during which the city was buried in ash and pumice. Lost for 1700 years, Pompeii is now a UNESCO World Heritage site as the perfectly preserved remains give us an amazing insight into life in a Roman city, complete with bathhouses, bakeries and homes - some of which are still have walls adorned with detailed frescoes. You may take some time to explore the site independently but we recommend opting for a detailed tour accompanied by a local guide which can be hired locally for approx. €10pp depending on the group size. In the afternoon we head to the famous volcano that looms over the million inhabitants of Naples, Mt Vesuvius. The vehicle will take you at an altitude of approx. 1000m and from there to the crater you will need to ascend on a path which is approx. 150 meters long and quite steep in places. A local guide will then take you on a short walk along the rim of the crater and he/shewill explain you the fascinating history of Vesuvius and its volcanic activity. We return to the hotel by bus in the late afternoon.

    Please note that in case of adverse weather conditions such as fog, storms or heavy rain the local authorities may deicide to restrict or prevent access to Vesuvius. In the event this inclusion cannot be offered on your departure, we will be taking you to Herculaneum to visit its perfectly preserved remains and virtual museum which give an amazing insight into the life of a Roman city.

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Lunch,
    Dinner
  • Day 4

    Visit mozzarella producer and discover picturesque Amalfi; evening pizza-making class.

    This morning we take a short transfer to visit a local cheese producer based in Agerola, where we have the opportunity to sample delicious freshly made mozzarella, prepared in front of us by hand following a centuries-old recipe. We may also have time to visit the small farm owned by the same family of cheesemakers. We then depart for a visit to vibrant Amalfi, which was popular with the British upper classes in Edwardian times. The large Duomo dominates the town with its bright coloured tiles so typical of the region. We have a few hours to explore the wonderful historic centre and alleys before taking an interesting tour of the Paper Museum, which celebrates the long-established paper making tradition in Amalfi. The guide will explain how the Amalfi paper was once made and you will also have the chance to experiment it yourself, using some of the ancient paper making machines which are still in working order for demonstrations.  We then make our way back to the hotel and enjoy a pizza-making class before dinner! 

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Lunch,

  • Day 5

    Free day to relax by the pool or for sightseeing.

    Today is free to relax at the hotel's pool or by one of the local beaches. Alternatively you could opt to take a day trip to the world famous island of Capri and decide to explore the island on foot, by boat and chairlift to visit the network of small pedestrian streets, the remains of the Roman Villa Jovis and the famous Faraglioni (rock stacks) and Blue Grotto. Another option is to spend the day in Ravello, a charming and peaceful town perched high on the cliffs above Amalfi, famous for its stunning panoramic gardens and its impressive Cathedral. Your tour leader will not always join these optional activities but will help you to arrange transport locally. 

    Meals included:
    Breakfast
  • Day 6

    Ceramic painting and walk along a short section of 'Walk of the Gods'.

    The Amalfi Coast is also renowned for its colourful ceramics and this morning we visit a local artisan's 'bottega', where the kids will have the opportunity to paint a pottery souvenir!  Later we set off for a fun walk along a short section of one of the world's finest day walks: the 'Path of the Gods'. The route follows the contours of the land with amazing views of the Amalfi Coastline far below. In season the meadows are carpeted with flowers and the coastal waters teem with cruisers and pleasure boats. Please be aware that the terrain can be rocky or uneven at times and there parts which are a little exposed therefore not suitable for severe vertigo sufferers. After a barbecue lunch (included, weather permitting) we will return to the hotel on foot.

    Meals included:
    Breakfast,
    Lunch
  • Day 7

    Kayak along the stunning shores of the Amalfi Coast; free time at the beach.

    After a scenic ride down to Amalfi (30 mins) we will enjoy a half-day kayak excursion along the Amalfi Coast. This is the perfect finale for the trip as it allows to explore Italy’s famous coastline from the most spectacular angle: in the midst of the sparkling blue sea. After a short introductory lesson on how to kayak and safety at sea we will set off, led by an experienced local guide, to the west towards Runghetiello GrottoThe route will take us along Amalfi’s finest beaches as well as under natural rock arches and into sea caves, giving us the opportunity to admire the old watch towers that dot the entire length of this coast. Those not wishing to participate can wait for the rest of the group at the lovely beach where the activity starts. Please note that in the event the kayaking cannot take place due to bad weather, the leader will organise an alternative activity such as a day-trip to Sorrento or Capri. We return to the hotel in the evening and enjoy a delicious group farewell dinner.

Accommodation

Hotel Due Torri

We spend 7 nights at the 3-star Hotel Due Torri in Bomerano, a small village in the municipality of Agerola, set high above the Amalfi Coast at an altitude of approximately 700m. Run by the warm and welcoming Acampora family, the Hotel Due Torri is well known for its great local cuisine, providing authentic dishes of the Campania region as well as fun pizza-making demonstrations. All rooms have en suite facilities, air conditioning, TV with international channels and free Wi-Fi.

A limited number of superior rooms (with facilities including Jacuzzi bath, power showers and fridge) are also available for a supplement from £180 or equivalent per room payable pre-departure. Please ask your sales consultant for further info.

Being higher up in the hills the property offers the benefit of cooler nights, although beaches are not too far away and there is a small outdoor pool (usually open from mid-April to mid-October, wheather dependent). The village is generally quiet and provides a relaxing contrast to the busier towns by the sea.

On occasion if the hotel is full you might be offered (upon booking) to stay at an alternative accommodation located within walking distance from the Due Torri. Guests staying at alternative accommodation will still make use of all the facilities of Hotel Due Torri, including the pool and restaurant.

Where a single supplement is available, paying for a single will only guarantee a room for single use. It does not necessarily mean a twin or double room will be provided for sole occupancy.

Please note that a member of the group may be allocated a single room by default if the make-up of the group means there isn’t anyone for them to share with. Paying the supplement in advance is the only way to guarantee a single room.

Single supplements cannot be refunded retrospectively.

Whilst we will do our very best to ensure that families are roomed close together (in some cases, we can arrange adjoining rooms), we can't guarantee this. Most family holidays occur during peak season and we sometimes have little to no control over where you will be put. You need to come prepared for this.

Food & Transport

Eating & Drinking

All breakfasts, 5 dinners and 4 packed lunches are included.

Breakfast is continental style with a choice of cereal, bread, yoghurt and milk with an array of teas/coffee. Packed lunches usually include a sandwich, one portion of fruit and a snack. All evening meals included in the itinerary are taken in the hotel, where the standard is excellent with wonderful seafood as well as the traditional Italian fare. The local staff will do their best to cater for all tastes with a fantastic range of pastas, meats, fish and vegetables. Be prepared to eat a large number of courses! On one night during our stay, the chef will share his expertise and teach us how to make a true Neapolitan pizza! When meals are not included these will be taken in other local restaurants or pizzerias in the towns visited.

 

Transportation

All transfers will be in a private vehicle (normally a mini-coach) and on some days we use boats.

Weather & Seasonality

When to go

Southern Italy, in common with a lot of the Mediterranean, possesses a hot, dry climate in summer, with cooler but slightly damper spring and autumn periods, and at coastal levels mild, damp winters. Rainfall is expected in winter months with an average of one day in three affected.  It is particularly important to note the high temperatures during summer which can often reach 35°C by the coast.  Unseasonable cold spells are possible at any time of year, during which time you will need warm clothes, especially in the hills up in Bomerano where evening temperatures can be lower than expected. It is important to be equipped for cooler weather in early spring, late autumn and winter.

Joining Instructions

Travelling flight inclusive from London: 8 days

The group flight from London is a daytime flight departing on Day 1 of the itinerary.

Flights from London

We normally use the scheduled services of British Airways or Alitalia (depending on availability). As flight timings and schedules change regularly we recommend you call one of our specialist sales staff or your agent to confirm up‐to‐date timings. Please note timings may change at a later date and cannot be confirmed until approximately two weeks before departure.

Travelling land only: 8 days starting in Agerola and ending in Agerola

Your trip normally starts at our accommodation in Agerola in the afternoon of Day 1 of the itinerary. Details of how to reach the start point are provided in the Final Joining Instructions ‐ sent approximately two weeks before departure.

Regional Flights

The Flight Inclusive price is based on a London departure, but we are happy to tailor this to your local or regional airport. Please ask about flights from local or regional airports.

If booking regional flights other than with Exodus, you must allow a minimum connecting time (in addition to the international check-in time) of 1 hour at Gatwick, and 1.5 hours at Heathrow; this is longer than the official minimum, but baggage handling is known to be subject to delays.

Full joining instructions including local emergency numbers will be sent to you as part of our Final Joining Instructions. If you do not receive these at least a week before departure, or require them earlier please contact our office or your travel agent.

Transfers Details

Airport transfers are included for those on the group flights. Please note that transfers are not included for clients arriving on any other flight, even if Exodus has booked it.

If you require airport transfers, you may (by prior arrangement only) be able to join the group transfer. Transfers are arranged to coincide with the arrival time of the group flight - please check the group flight details 2 weeks before departure. If you do not take this transfer, or miss it, you must make your own way to the joining point at your own expense.

It is possible to reach the start hotel using the public bus network but unfortunately the connections to Bomerano (Agerola) are very limited and services not always reliable. For this reason we strongly recommend to join the group transfer at the airport if possible. Alternatively you can contact the Exodus Customer Operations team prior departure to arrange a private pick-up transfer on arrival. This costs between £80-120 depending on number of people sharing the vehicle and it is payable to Exodus prior departure.

The information offered below is to help you with that process. We are not responsible for the actions of local immigration and customs officials, whether at points of entry or otherwise, and any subsequent effects.

Travel health can often be something people forget about before going away, but a little preparation and knowledge can go a long way to help you stay fit and healthy while abroad.

The above information can change at short notice; as we are not qualified to answer all your questions about travel health we strongly recommend you contact your Medical Professional or a Travel Health Clinic at least 8 weeks prior to departure for up-to-date information.

Insurance - are you adequately covered?

It is a condition of joining any of our holidays that you must be fully insured against medical and personal accident risks (to include repatriation costs and air ambulance or helicopter rescue services where appropriate). On arrival in destination for your trip, you will be asked to present details to your leader or local representative of your policy.

If you are resident in the UK we strongly recommend the Exodus travel insurance policy, this is specifically designed to cover all activities on your trip. If arranging your own policy please ensure that you are covered for all activities that are part of the trip, optional activities that you intend to take part in and/or on high altitude itineraries, that you are covered up to the maximum altitude of the trip.

If you are a UK citizen and travelling in Europe you should obtain the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) from your Post Office. This gives you medical care at a reduced cost, and some cases for free, in many European countries, but should not be considered a substitute for adequate insurance.

LOCAL TAXES: many Italian cities have recently introduced a tourist tax for non-residents. The local administration is in charge of the tax, which will be collected by the accommodation provider at check-in or check-out. This fee varies depending on the hotel category, the season and number of days of stay. It is usually between between €0.50 and €1.50 per person per night. For this trip, please allow between €5 and €10, depending on the season, for the week. Children and people aged 75 or over are exempt from this tax.

In Capri the leader may recommend to use private taxis to move around the often overcrowded island. For this optional service and the cable-car please allow approx. €35 per person.

Tipping

Although optional, a tip for the leader at the end of the trip is greatly appreciated. As a guideline we recommend a contribution of €15-20 per adult per leader. Groups normally like to show their appreciation for hotel staff by leaving a tip at the end of their stay. We recommend a contribution of approx. €10 per adult for the local staff at the hotel. It is also customary to tip private bus drivers (please allow approx. €10 per family for the week). 

 

Responsible Tourism

Tourism can be a real help to local communities, providing income, positive cultural exchanges and a financial incentive to protect their natural environment. Ours is a 'total approach' to responsible tourism, covering everything from the way we plan and operate our trips to the practices of Exodus as a company. 

On this trip, we will spend the nights in the family-run Hotel Le Due Torri in Agerola, a relatively unknown area of Amalfi, bringing income to an area that does not usually benefit from tourism. The hotel recently installed solar panels which provides hot water for their rooms and all food provided are homemade, using locally produced and sourced goods where possible. On one of the evenings before dinner, clients have the opportunity to learn from their hosts how to prepare a traditional Neapolitan pizza.

This trip is packed with exciting activities for the whole family which really highlights the best natural and cultural treasures of the Amalfi Coast. Children have the opportunity to showcase their creativity through a series of activities such as pottery painting in a local artisan’s ‘bottega’ and experimenting the ancient way of paper making in Amalfi. Such activities are also great to foster interaction with locals. Our money spent at various historical sites goes towards the maintenance of these places and the wages of those working there.

In March 2019, Exodus Travels launched the Exodus Travels Foundation where we support initiatives all around the world. But it cannot exist without travellers who care. Get involved or learn more about what Responsible Travel means to Exodus here

Important Information

On all guided trips

Although our leaders are well trained to deal with different capabilities, if they have any concerns about someone’s ability to safely partake in an activity, or their impact on other people’s enjoyment, we authorise them to take necessary action which, in some circumstances, may involve asking someone to miss that activity.

Although rarely enforced, by booking this trip you agree to section 14 of our Booking Conditions which clearly states that our leaders have the authority to do this. In these circumstances we will ensure anyone sitting out is safely provided for and offered alternative options where possible. Refunds will not be provided for activities missed and customers may be liable for additional costs incurred.

On all trips

In booking this trip you should be confident in your ability to participate in all activities described in these Trip Notes. If you have any doubt about your suitability you should call the Exodus office and ask to speak to one of the experts on this itinerary.

In an emergency, please contact our 24 hour out of hours service on +44 (0) 844 326 7041.

Every time that you travel abroad you should take the time to read the warnings in the essential information in the brochure.

Full joining instructions including local emergency numbers, and details of how to reach the start point, will be sent to you approximately 2 to 3 weeks prior to departure. If you do not receive these at least a week before departure, or require them earlier please contact our office or your travel agent.

The information in these Trip Notes is given in good faith. Where differences exist between the Trip Notes and our current brochure or website, the Trip Notes supersede the brochure and website. All holidays can be subject to unexpected changes; in order to enjoy them you should be prepared to be flexible where necessary. Occasionally, as stated in our brochure, it may not be possible to follow the itinerary as planned. This may be for a variety of reasons - climatic, political, physical or other. In these circumstances we will make the best possible alternative arrangements that maintain the integrity of the original itinerary.

As fuel prices, airport taxes and exchange rates fluctuate, and airlines manage their rates to match demand, it is proving harder than ever to guarantee our Flight Inclusive prices. Although we endeavour to keep our website as accurate as possible, daily fluctuations mean that our Flight Inclusive price may be out of date. For accurate prices we recommend that you contact one of our Travel Experts, or your Travel Agent.

Family trips

On all trips the staff are there to help ensure the holiday runs as smoothly as possible and, in the unlikely event that it does not, to sort out the best possible alternatives. What they cannot do is act as child minders or babysitters; they will treat your children as 'young adults', but it is your responsibility to look after your young ones. During free time or if you decide to opt out of part of the itinerary, you are responsible for your family and any arrangements that need to be made. Under no circumstances should this responsibility fall on our staff or any of your fellow travellers outside of your immediate family.

This trip includes time by a lake, river or sea, where there may be opportunities to swim. Swimming results in more tourists deaths than any other activity. All customers should always seek local advice before deciding whether to swim, and are requested to treat the sea with extreme caution if they choose to enter the water. Details on how to keep yourself safe while swimming are shown here.
