Sightseeing Highlights

Rome
Rome is the capital of modern Italy and the historical home of one of the great civilizations in history, The Roman Empire. The historical city was founded in 753 BC and has grown to a size of over 3 million inhabitants today. The city is home to major monuments like the Colosseum, Roman forum, Trevi Fountain and many more. The city was built on the seven ancient hills along the Tiber River. Today it is a collection of neighborhoods with vibrant shops, restaurants and museums just waiting to be explored.

Colosseum
The Colosseum is one of the most recognizable structures of the Roman Empire. The structure was built in the first century AD as a place of celebration for Gladiator games and public spectacles. Today the structure has been preserved and is an open air museum that highlights the architectural expertise of the ancient Romans. Visitors can see the details of the recently cleaned facade made of Travertine marble and view the internal structure of this “Wonder of the World.”

Montecassino
Montecassino is a rocky hill situated southeast of Rome, Italy, housing St. Benedict of Nursia’s first monastery in 529. The hilltop sanctuary was the site of the Battle of Montecassino in 1944, where the building was destroyed by Allied bombing and then rebuilt after the war. The site was one of the last remaining territorial abbeys within the Catholic Church, until 2014. Modern excavations have found wonderful treasures in Montecassino, including manuscripts codices that are now archived for safekeeping. (Codices is the plural of codex, and a codex is an ancient manuscript text in book form.) The site is also a burial ground for several historic religious figures.

Amalfi Coast
The rocky Sorrento Peninsula stretches into the Tyrrhenian Sea separating the Bay of Naples to the north from the Gulf of Salerno to the south. On the south of the peninsula is the famed Amalfi Coast. The Amalfi Coast features the 32-mile-long coastal drive that hugs the cliff as is passes through the picturesque fishing villages of Positano, Amalfi and Minori (among others). The coast is famed for its breathtaking views, local cuisine and drinks like limoncello.

Sorrento
The north side of the Sorrento peninsula is the Sorrento Coast, named after the largest city and tourist center, Sorrento. The Sorrento Coast is home to panoramic views of shear cliffs, small rocky beaches and terraced gardens of olive and lemon trees. The town of Sorrento is a tourist’s delight, complete with excellent shopping, quaint cafes and elegant restaurants.

Buffalo Milk Mozzarella Factory
The Campagna region of Italy is famous for many food products like pizza. An important component of that pizza is also a major industry for the area, mozzarella cheese. The local cheese is made from the milk of the water buffalo. Hundreds of farms in the region raise the buffalo for their milk, which is used to make delicious, fresh mozzarella. The cheese is considered to be a artisan product and makers can charge a premium for the best cheese. Some of the farms allow visitors and show them the buffalo, milking stations and cheese making process.

Paestum
The ancient Greeks dominated southern Italy, calling it Magna Grecia. One of their northern most city-states was in the Campagna region near modern day Paestum. The archeological site of Paestum is significant for its preservation of three massive Greek temples. The temples are of the doric style and represent the Greek’s great abilities as builders. Surrounding the temples are remnants of the Greek and later Roman town.

Capri
Originally populated by the Ancient Greeks, the island of Capri is rich with history. Tiberius, the second emperor of Ancient Rome, lived and ruled form Capri for a series of years. You’ll find ruins of the Imperial Roman villas scattered throughout the town. Journey to the top of Anacapri, located high up on the island. From there, you can admire the dazzling blue Bay of Naples and all the picturesque scenery the island has to offer. On Anacapri, you’ll see the towering limestone cliffs from a new perspective!

Pompeii
The Roman city of Pompeii is located in the southern region of Campania, near Naples. The city was covered by volcanic material in 79 AD and forgotten for centuries. When the city was excavated, archeologists found the city to be intact as it had been prior to the eruption. Today visitors walk on the original streets, complete with chariot ruts. The city was made up of a variety of different buildings including theaters, homes, shops, thermal baths and temples — all of which can be visited today. In addition, every day objects and precious artifacts have been preserved along with original mosaic and fresco decorations.

Winery Visit
Stand in the shadow of mighty Mt. Vesuvius and enjoy some famous Lacryma Christo wines. This vino only comes from this specific region and is said to be the closest match to wine drunk by the Ancient Romans. The name Lachryma Christi of Vesuvius, literally means "tears of Christ."

Naples
Naples is the third largest city in Italy and a cultural and political hub of the Campania region. The city sits at the base of Mount Vesuvius overlooking the Bay of Naples. The city was the home of the last Spanish King who ruled over the Kingdom of Two Sicilys from his massive castle that is located near the port. Today the city center is a mix of post WWII era modernity and a few historic treasures that survived the bombing. The crazy traffic of the city has become a symbol of the modern Naples and its vibrant streets.

National Archaeological Museum
The National Archaeological Museum in Naples is home to a fascinating collection of Roman artifacts from places such as Pompeii and Herculaneum. Regarded as the most important institution of its kind in Italy, the museum also features works of art from Greek and Renaissance times.
