Discover one of the world's most fascinating and romantic destinations

The real beginnings of southern Italy start in the Campania region, a sought-after place since the Romans named it 'happy land'. Based in the quiet village of Agerola, set amidst the green Lattari mountains away from the crowds, we visit the most famous sites in the Bay of Naples, namely the extraordinarily preserved ruins of Herculaneum and the legendary UNESCO archaeological site of Pompeii. On the other side of the Sorrento Peninsula we explore the Amalfi Coast, one of Europe's most dramatic stretches of coastline. Whether travelling to Capri by boat, admiring some delightful coastal views from the ‘Path of the Gods' or visiting the incredibly romantic Ravello, you’ll be spellbound by the natural beauty and cultural treasures of this land. Over time, illustrious artists, writers, and actors have found inspiration in this land; now it’s your turn to live la dolce vita for a week!

Responsible Travel

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 spend the week 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 all rooms all year round. Meals provided in the hotel are homemade by the lovely hosts where ingredients are locally sourced wherever possible. Clients also have the opportunity to learn how to prepare a traditional Neapolitan pizza from the hosts during one of the evenings. The money spent on the places of interest we visit goes directly to the maintenance of these iconic historical sites and provides wages for those working there. Of course, a huge part of Italian culture is cuisine and this is reflected in locally crafted produce, some of which is unique to the region.

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

Itinerary

Agerola
to
Agerola
  • Day 1

    Start Bomerano (Agerola).

    This trip starts in Bomerano – a tiny village on the west side of the Agerola Valley, 1hr20m south of Naples. Our hosts for the week are the charming and friendly Giovanni and Nicola Acampora, owners of the Hotel Due Torri. Surrounded by vineyards and orchards, their family-run property has a pool and fabulous views of the surrounding Lattari mountains; an ideal location to escape the crowds. Those us who have arranged our own flights should rendezvous at the hotel in time for dinner, although the more convenient option is to meet the group at the airport for the transfer.

    Meals included: Dinner
  • Day 2

    Sightseeing in Amalfi and picture-perfect Positano.

    Leaving the Agerola plain we descend by private bus to Amalfi, Italy’s oldest maritime republic. Quintessentially Mediterranean, Amalfi's townscape is comprised of a cluster of little white houses and buildings, narrow alleyways and shady porticoes, dominated by large Duomo Cathedral with its bright coloured tiles which are typical of the region. We spend the morning sightseeing, relaxing in one of its sun-filled piazzas, or visiting the interesting Paper museum (optional). Later, we continue by fast boat (approx. 20 mins) to Positano. En route we enjoy the famous enchanting views of the sheer cliffs and rugged shoreline dotted with small beaches that have drawn people to this stunning coast for centuries. There is no better way of approaching Positano for the first time than from the sea, as the contrast of this near vertical town of colourful buildings against the verdant cliffs and blue waters will leave you mesmerised. We have a few hours to explore this chic, picture-perfect village on foot, before we return to our hotel in the late afternoon by boat and private bus.

    Meals included: Breakfast Dinner
  • Day 3

    Visit the legendary archaeological sites of Herculaneum and Pompeii.

    A busy day today as we travel to the Bay of Naples by private bus (approx. 1 hr) to explore two of the most famous archaeological sites in the world, Herculaneum and Pompeii. Both the towns and its people got buried under the ash and magma of Mt Vesuvius after the AD79 eruption, but it was only much later in the 18th century that these ancient cities came to light once again through excavations. The eruption affected the sites in different ways: whilst Pompeii is known to be home to a more extensive and vaster collection of Roman homes, shops and bathhouses as well as the to the iconic plaster bodies, Herculaneum ruins, frescos and the recently discovered 300 skeletons along the seashore are much better preserved. Entrance tickets to both sites are included in the trip and you can decide to explore alone, at your own pace, or led by a knowledgeable local guide (optional). We return to the hotel late afternoon (approx. 1hr) to enjoy a delicious dinner and cooking demonstration.

    Meals included: Breakfast Dinner
  • Day 4

    Walk part of the spectacular 'Path of the Gods' .

    Today we walk a section of one of the world's finest trails. Leaving from our front door step it's a short stroll through the quiet village of Bomerano. Here we’ll drop into a local cheese maker to see how the delicious local mozzarella is made. And, yes, we’ll taste some.  We then we join the famous 'Path of the Gods' which runs all the way to Positano. Luckily, having already visited Positano earlier this week, we can skip the hard part and the 1700 steps downtown, and we take a circular walk instead, offering some equally fantastic coastal views along the way. Please be aware that some parts of the trail are rocky and there are frequent ups and downs which can be a little hard on the knees. With breaks for water and snacks as well as a rewarding stop for a barbecue lunch (weather permitting), this short hike is of moderate difficulty but doable by all those in good fitness, and the challenge will be no doubt be repaid by the magnificent views! (Walking time: approx. 2.5-3 hours; Distance: 6km; Ascent: 100m Descent: 100m)

     

    Meals included: Breakfast Lunch Dinner
  • Day 5

    Free day to relax, visit Vesuvius, Sorrento or Naples.

    How will you spend a free day on the Amalfi Coast? We recommend considering a trip up to the slopes of Mt Vesuvius to peer into the crater, followed by an excellent wine tasting at a renowned local winery located right below the majestic volcano. Alternatively, you could opt to take a visit to Sorrento for a nice seafood lunch and to enjoy the sweeping views over the Bay of Naples. Pedestrian lanes, little boutiques, limoncello shops and restaurants make it an easy and enjoyable place to spend a day at leisure. There is no need to pre-book these excursions prior departure as your tour leader will help arranging them locally on request.

    Meals included: Breakfast
  • Day 6

    Sightseeing in elegant Ravello; visit Villa Cimbrone.

    Today we visit the romantic hilltop town of Ravello for some of the best views of the Amalfi coastline. Ravello also has a grand Duomo but Villa Cimbrone (visit included) and Villa Rufolo (optional) are the real gems of the town. Set amidst elegant gardens, the villas balconies stand at the edge of the cliffs offering stunning views aptly described by André Gide as 'closer to the sky than the seashore'. There is time to wander, enjoy a coffee and soak up the atmosphere before we return to the cooler climes of Bomerano in the afternoon. The reminder of the day is free for relaxation.

    Meals included: Breakfast Dinner
  • Day 7

    Boat to Capri; free afternoon to explore the island.

    We leave the hotel after breakfast and take the bus down to Amalfi and board the boat to Capri. The journey along the Amalfi Coast is spectacular with small coves and bays of clear azure water overlooked by towering cliffs. The time spent on Capri is unguided and on arrival you are free to explore independently. Your tour leader however might recommend to avoid the hassle of public transport on the island and make the most of your time by arranging an excursion by local taxis and cable car (optional, payable locally). A beautiful walk will take you up to Capri town and along a network of small pedestrianised streets to visit the remains of Villa Jovis, the former home of the fearsome Roman emperor Tiberius. A walk around the spectacular coastline is recommended and allows you to see a natural rock arch and the famous Faraglioni, rock stacks which stick vertically out of the sea. There is also time to do a spot of shopping in some of islands boutique shops before we return by boat and bus to our hotel. We enjoy a farewell dinner and say goodbye to the friendly staff and group.

    Meals included: Breakfast Dinner
  • Day 8

    End Bomerano (Agerola).

    Our tour ends in the morning of day 8.

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 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. 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.

    I think the hotel should put a room at the disposal of departing guests for showering, given the late afternoon departure. This is common practice in some other hotels.

    Amazing !

    I loved everything about this trip. It was my first solo trip out of the country so I was a little nervous but it far exceeded all of my expectations and I was worried for nothing. Eduardo, our tour leader was wonderful and I made life long friends in our group. The itinerary was perfect taking you to all the amazing sights around the Amalfi coast. You return to the hotel late in the day with a couple hours to shower, relax, have a drink or two by the pool before dinner. Each day is a combination of guided tour and a little bit of free time to wander around on your own or with others. Transportation is completely taken care of even on the free day but some of it is an additional cost you pay that day or the night before. Well worth it to not have to deal with bus and ferry schedules and have it all taken care of for you. Driving is crazy there as are the lines so this was really convenient. The sights were breath taking, each place being more beautiful than the last. The food at the hotel is literally to die for. Each meal is delicious as is the wine. The rooms are comfortable, the service is excellent and I cannot say enough good things about our guide Eduardo who is so proud to show off his country, is charming, fun, funny and beyond welcoming. He knows everybody ! Our group had a blast together and Eduardo made sure everyone had fun. On the last day 5 of us went on a bus to the Naples train station, 2 to get on a bus, myself to board a train and 2 others to get to a hotel in Naples. Upon arriving in the parking lot we were confused about where to go and all of a sudden out of the crowd, Eduardo appeared running toward us, having just dropped others off at the airport, he wanted to find us to make sure all of us knew exactly where to go like a super hero appearing out of the chaos just to help us and say goodbye again ! There were amazing things to see at each place and then a little bit of time to enjoy a drink, gelato or wander in and out of the shops.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    I loved everything. the quiet beauty of Ravello, taking the cable car up to the top of Capri, the sapphire blue water everywhere, the amazing lunch while hiking the Path of the Gods. I do not think I can pick a favorite out of everything I saw and did. This area of Italy is truly spectacular. Pompeii and Herculean are very interesting, the color of the water along the coast is breath taking, Positano and Sorrento are utterly charming...it goes on and on. The beauty of the entire region was completely inspiring

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Eduardo was fantastic. So knowledgeable, fun, funny and engaging. He had terrific energy and made sure everyone had fun. He talked and laughed with each person individually as well as with the entire group. It was a fabulous experience and he made it all the more special. I can't say enough great comments about him and the entire experience.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Italy is very hot at the end of June/beginning of July plus the heat wave this year. Bring cool clothing and sunscreen. A day pack to carry water and sunscreen was helpful and a hat Most everyone changed for dinner because you wind up back at the hotel, also bring something for the final night which is a farewell dinner Bring extra money for the additional items not included in the tour. ATMs are everywhere Bring a bathing suit if you want to enjoy the pool at the hotel Exodus caters to the group from England so the bus doesn't leave until the end of the day on the last day because of the flight back to England. If you choose to leave sooner to go somewhere else ( I took a one hour train back to Rome) you will have to pay for it on your own or share the cost with others in group. Exodus transportation is only for this exact time. It was not a problem to ask Eduardo to arrange transportation and 5 of us shared but I felt it was a bit unfair Exodus charges anyway. The path of the Gods is not easy but it is doable. The hotel has walking sticks. I thought it was helpful because some of the rocks are high to climb up and down. Eduardo was also there to lend a hand. In the heat a lot of people were huffing and puffing but the scenery and the lunch were well worth the effort. I'm so happy I did it ! Try a limoncello spritzer, eat everything, stop for gelato and try a new flavor every day. Take tons of pictures!

    The roads are very windy. I didn't mind, but thought to mention it for anyone who suffers from motion sickness. A reminder to anyone who does this tour during one of the hot months; remember to stay hydrated and wear loose clothing as we do a decent amount of walking. Do try to have a lemon sorbet in Positano

    Enjoyed the visit to the Amalfi coast and was very glad I had signed up for it

    We arrived on a Saturday evening and on the first day, Sunday, went down to the harbour in Amalfi to get the ferry between Amalfi and Positano. It was pouring with rain to begin with but after an hour in Amalfi it cleared and became a clear sunny day, with a cool wind. It was an amazing experience going down the zig zag of the road down to sea level and the coast below, and better was seeing the coast from the boat, and enjoying the sights at Positano. Day 2 was very interesting going by bus first to Herculiun and then Pompii and being given a guided tour and seeing the depth of the excavation, and the details of the settlements which had been destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius.The following day we walked the Path of the Gods and had a rustic lunch high above sea level with wonderful views of the coast before returning to the start.The rest of the week was filled with visits to other communities along the coast, with time to enjoy restful lunches, and local sights, seeing the scenery, and enjoying the sun until the highlight visiting Capri on Friday, and spending the day enjoying the sights there. A great holiday.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    It was testing to do the walk along the path of the Gods, but very worth while, with the wonderful views of the coast line, and this experience was repeated when we were visiting the isle of Capri.

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Excellent. He worked very hard to look after each and every person on the tour, and that all the arrangements, and transfers worked as smoothly as possible.

    Amazing Amalfi

    There is a reason while Amalfi is one of the best selling tours offered by Exodus Tours. It is a gorgeous place to visit (even in January when it is freezing cold!) I love the variety of expeditions. My favorites were hiking 3,000 steps down to Amalfi, walking the Path of the Gods and celebrating January 1 on the Circuito Tre Calli. I also enjoyed the private tours of Pompei and Herculaneum.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    It was around 9 in the morning and the sky was turning pale pink and lavender and yellow. We stopped to take photos of the scene below on the Path of the Gods—mountains, sea and rugged cliffs. I was awestruck by the poetry of the moment. I blogged about it—https://femalesolotrek.com/2019/01/02/path-of-the-gods/

    What did you think of your group leader?

    Severio manages to juggle everything--site closings, road closings, snow and more—with calm. He made our group feel so welcome. I also want to thank the Italian family who runs the hotel where we stayed. They are fantastic. Their hospitality made us feel like family.

    Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

    Late December/early January is a tricky time for this tour. We were lucky with regard to the weather although it did snow at the end. It was really cold hiking because if the strong winds. You need to dress warmly. Bring snow boots!

    Difficult to be positive

    We had exceptionally bad weather so it is quite difficult to be too positive. The hotel may be lovely in the middle of summer but not for a wet week in October. I realise Exodus have no control over the weather but the location, half way up a mountain, is not good in the Autumn fogs. The day we were supposed to do the Walk of the Gods (the best day of the week and perfect for walking) our guide decided that 1 or 2 of our party weren't up to it, so we all had to do a different shorter walk; quite annoying as a lot of the rest of the itinerary was cancelled/curtailed due to the weather. We couldn't go to Capri as the ferries weren't sailing but our guide organised an excellent trip to Paestum.

    What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

    When the clouds cleared and we saw the views around Bomerano . Mostly we saw it in the rain and fog!

    Bomerano is a 40 minute windy road away from Amalfi, the journey you have to make most days before setting off for anywhere else.

    Had a wonderful time on this trip. We were 18 people in our group which is a perfect size something I love about Exodus tours. There was enough guidance from the tour leader and enough free time to do what you wanted. Loved staying in the village of Bomerano rather than down on the Amalfi Coast because it was less crowded and more of an authentic experience.

Dates & Prices

An overview of flight options

Exodus is committed to making joining our tours as easy as possible, wherever you live. We generally only block book seats from London, but this certainly does not mean that you need to fly from there. Depending on the route and airlines available, there will usually be various options available for those who want to fly from their local airport.

This page aims to provide a useful overview of the options available to our clients. However, the best flight arrangements should be tailored to your personal requirements, so please contact our Sales team for expert advice.

 

What kind of options do I have ?

1. We can book for you: Flights from anywhere in the world - not via London  

Depending on the route, this may be direct or via an overseas hub like Amsterdam, the Middle East or elsewhere. On short haul routes there may be direct flights with low cost airlines, charter flights or scheduled airlines. Exodus can book most, but not all, of these for you. The most appropriate airline may be different to that which we use for the group flight from London, but many people now travel on different airlines and meet up with their fellow passengers at the destination.

Pros Cons
  • May be the most direct route
  • Often the extra fare compared to the London flight is minimal.
  • As you will be in the hands a single airline for your entire journey, the airline will be responsible for your bags and your connections.
  • You may not be able to join the group transfers. However, we can usually arrange private transfers, or book your flights to try and coincide with the group transfers. See notes on transfer arrangements below.

 

2. We can book for you: Connecting flights from your local airport to London

Exodus can book connecting flights to London so you can join the group flight there. Connecting times will be followed according to airline advice, or as requested by clients. There are two types of fares we can use for this option: a 'through-fare' or a 'published fare'.
 
a) A 'through-fare' is where you will be in the main airline's care throughout. You change planes, but your bags are checked all the way through to your final destination. 

b) A 'published fare' ticket is completely seperate from your onward ticket from London. It is usually cheaper than a through-fare but will need to be paid for and issued as soon as it is booked. This can be a problem if your tour has not yet reached minimum numbers. On 'published fares' neither airline is aware that you have connecting flights, so Exodus is responsible for timing your connection, not the airlines involved. The tickets are also usually non changeable and non refundable.

Pros Cons
  • Depending on the fare type, Exodus or the airline is responsible for flight connections.
  • Through fare tickets can be expensive.
  • On a published fare, tickets must be issued immediately; tickets on published fares can be very difficult to change if onward flight times change; bags are not checked though to your final destination.
  • Published fares are non-refundable.

 

3. Booking some or all of the flights yourself

You can also book connecting air travel yourself, either to London, or all the way to the start point. There may be certain airlines or routes we don't have access to, so this is always an option. However, if you make your own travel arrangements you become liable for any delays, cancellations or missed connections, and Exodus is not required to offer refunds if you have trouble reaching the start of your trip.

Pros Cons
  • You might find cheaper fares, or routes not available to Exodus.
  • You are responsible for any delays or missed connections, and the cost of the tour is not protected should you miss your flight be cancelled.

 

 Notes on transfer arrangements

Sometimes it is possible to travel on a different airline to the group flight from London. Where this is the case, we need to think about ensuring you meet up with the group with minimum extra cost and hassle.

  • On certain trips, it is easy to arrive on a different flight and still meet the group at the hotel with time in hand. We can usually arrange private transfers (at extra cost) or offer advice on taking a taxi to the start hotel.
  • On other trips (especially in Europe), the transfer meets the group flight and then travels some distance to the first night's accommodation. Where this is the case, our Sales team will try to arrange flights that arrive before (and depart after) the group. However, we do have to make it clear in your final documentation that if your flights are delayed, the transfer cannot wait for you. While Exodus or our local operators will do what we can to help you reach the start point of the tour, any additional costs must be paid by the client.
