Late morning transfer to Sorrento by private coach. En route stop and visit of Pompei. Due to its healthy climate and pleasant scenery, Pompeii was a holiday resort for rich Romans. It is now famous for its civic buildings lining the streets that are still intact today. Some of these include the Surgeon's House, as well as those of the Faun and the Chaste Lovers, which are exceptional examples of the epoch's architecture. Another remarkable construction is the House of Mysteries, which derives its name from the murals depicting the initiation rites (i.e., the mysteries) of the Dionysian cult. A peculiar characteristic of Pompeii is the florid graffiti covering the walls in just about every building; this is because when the volcanic eruption happened, Pompeii was set to carry out elections in the days ahead – hence the writings and ideograms, which feature both political and sexual content At the end, enjoy a light lunch
and a wine tasting on the Vesuvio Volcano. From the wine estate you will enjoy the view of the entire Gulf of Naples with Capri, Ischia, Naples and other small villages on the coastline. Sorrento Coast and overnight in Sorrento.

Later, continue to Ravello, a destination for artists, musicians, and writers, including Richard Wagner who composed here some operas.

Stand in the right spot at a viewpoint overlooking Matera's huddled sassi, and it's not difficult to imagine you've been teleported back to the Holy Land circa 100 BC. At once epic and cinematic, the ‘Città Sotterranea', as it's known, perches on the upper reaches of the steep-sided Gravina gorge and its timeless urban landscape has often been used to evoke biblical scenes in films and TV.

Day 09: Saturday - Lecce (B)
Half day guided visit of Lecce. Called "the Florence of the South", Lecce welcomes visitors with its magnificent baroque architecture, which blazes on the portals of its palaces and on the facades of the many churches that line the streets inside the city's three ancient gates: Porta Rudiae, Porta San Biagio and Porta Napoli. The common factor in the city's characteristic baroque exuberance is the local "Lecce stone", so soft and malleable, that master stonecutters were able to create highly sophisticated stone embroidery. Overnight in Lecce.
