Ex­plore the Amalfi Coast

Life & Style Weekend - - TRAVEL -

PETER Som­mer Trav­els is of­fer­ing two new sail­ings in Septem­ber to the Amalfi Coast.

Es­corted by ar­chae­ol­o­gist Dr So­phy Downes and art his­to­rian Francesca del Vec­chio, the eight-day tour of­fers a unique per­spec­tive on one of the world’s most fa­mous coast­lines, while you en­joy the com­forts of a tra­di­tional Turk­ish gulet boat which has been stylishly re­fit­ted in Italy.

Visit some of the best-known des­ti­na­tions in the area in­clud­ing the isle of Capri, the ru­ins of Pom­peii and breath­tak­ing Amalfi, as well as lesser-known sites such as the an­cient un­der­wa­ter city at Baia and the out­stand­ing Ro­man fres­coes of the Villa Oplon­tis.

In ad­di­tion to sail­ing the is­land of Ischia and vis­it­ing the colour­ful port of Posi­tano, you’ll have plenty of time to taste lo­cal wines and in­dulge in de­li­cious Neapoli­tan piz­zas.

The in­ti­mate cruise for up to 10 guests de­parts from Naples on Septem­ber 2 and Septem­ber 9.
