Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival to Rome

Welcome to Rome - one of the most vibrant cities in the world and the capital of magnificent Italy. Your guide will welcome you at the airport and organise the transfer to your hotel. After you take some rest, you will have dinner in one of the authentic Italian restaurants, and enjoy the atmosphere of this unique and lively city. 

Depending on the time of your arrival, Adventure Roads Limited recommend that you take a tour of the city and will gladly assist you in suggesting the best of what Rome has to offer.

It is also recommended that you arrive at Rome a few days before the scheduled start of the tour, so you could enjoy the most famous city attractions in a relaxed and stress-free atmosphere.

You should not miss out on trying the authentic Italian cuisine in some of the numerous restaurants and trattorias scattered around the city.

Day 2: Rome - Naples - Pompei

After breakfast, you will have a short briefing covering the most important aspects of riding in a group and you will repeat the most useful information concerning the tour. As soon you have finished the cup of great Italian coffee, you will be ready for the thrilling adventure that awaits you.

Leaving Rome, you will head towards yet another energetic southern city: Naples. With the millennia of known history (dating back to the second millennium B.C.), Naples will show you centuries of art, culture, and fine architecture typical of southern Italy.

The town's cathedral - Duomo di San Gennaro, is filled with frescoes of amazing beauty. Other major landmarks include the lavish Royal Palace and Castel Nuovo, a 13th-century castle.

Naples is an exceptionally vibrant city, full of southern buzz, with numerous scooters and bikes flying around its narrow streets. It is well known as a home of pizza, so don’t leave town without trying one.

Talking about food, the restaurants in Naples were awarded more Michelin stars than any other Italian city. Buon appetito!

Day 3: Rest day - visit of Pompei

In vicinity of Naples is the Mount Vesuvius, the still-active volcano that destroyed the ancient Roman town of Pompeii. On your rest day you will have an organised visit of Naples, the Mount Vesuvius and the famous remains of an ancient city of Pompeii.

The Mount Vesuvius, a volcano near the Naples Bay, has erupted more than 50 times. The best-known eruption took place in the year 79 A.D., when the volcano buried the ancient Roman city of Pompeii under a thick carpet of volcanic ash.

Two thousand people died, and the city was abandoned for almost as many years. When a group of explorers rediscovered the site in 1748, they were surprised to find that - underneath a thick layer of dust and debris - Pompeii was mostly intact.

Largely preserved under the ash, the excavated city offers a unique snapshot of Roman life, frozen at the moment it was buried and providing an extraordinarily detailed insight into the everyday life of its inhabitants.

It was a wealthy town, enjoying many fine public buildings and luxurious private houses with lavish decorations, furnishings, and works of art which were the main attractions for the early excavators.

Organic remains, including wooden objects and human bodies, were entombed in the ash. Pompeii has a UNESCO World Heritage Site status and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Italy, with approximately 2.5 million visitors every year.

Day 4: Pompeii - Amalfi - San Nicola Arcella

You will be heading south and ride along the beautiful coast of Amalfi. There will be nothing but curvy roads ahead of you and a wide blue sea on your right side. You will take breaks to enjoy the view, take photos, and take some rest.

Day 5: San Nicola Arcella - Messina
