Chapters Experience Holidays


Press Release   •   Feb 20, 2017 08:00 GMT

Sun-kissed for around 250 days a year, the Sorrento Peninsula, with its captivating views of Naples, Vesuvius and the Isle of Capri, is spectacular at any time of year. Why not avoid the high season hustle and make the most of the more temperate weather by travelling with expert ‘experience’ tour operators Chapters Experience Holidays in Spring.

The Sorrento Peninsula comes out of hibernation in Spring, with mid 20°C temperatures making it ideal for comfortably exploring the flower strewn hills and taking the first of many dips in the sea without any of the crowds. At this time of year, the calm waters of the Bay of Naples provide a beautiful backdrop to a lush fertile landscape dotted with sweet smelling orange groves, vines and historic sights, which have been shaped and influenced by its volcanic setting,

Combining days leisurely walking on the Peninsula and in the Lattari Mountains with a myriad of local world-class sites, Chapters Experience Holidays ‘Exploring the Sorrento Peninsula’ is a superb way to explore this lovely region. Highlights include the Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum – both frozen in time by Vesuvius’s eruption in AD79; the magnificently preserved Greek temples of Paestum and walks to the crater rim of Vesuvius and along the craggy and dramatic Amalfi coastal Path of the Gods. There is also the chance to explore the famous towns of Amalfi, Positano and Ravello as well as the colourful city of Naples. Staying in the family run Hotel Mary, with fabulous views out over the Bay of Naples below, evenings are spent dining on the terrace or sipping on a perfectly chilled limoncello as the sun slips silently into the shimmering sea.

Equally appealing, Chapters Experience Holidays also offer a selection of autumn holidays to Sorrento when the crowds have all but disappeared and the weather is still very inviting.

‘Exploring the Sorrento Peninsula’ is available as a one or two week break with one week starting from £940/person including return flights and transfers, half board ensuite accommodation, all transport costs and service of a leader.

With over 20 departures to choose from, Spring dates span from 15 April to 3 June, with Autumn dates from 2 September to 11 November. There are also special Christmas and New Year departures on 20 and 27 December 2017.
