Thinking about planning your post summer break? With peak summer season over and the crowds of tourists dissipating, Sorrento Peninsula once again becomes a sun-kissed tranquil haven in September making it a top choice with Chapters Experience Holidays for a relaxing autumn escape.
Boasting comfortable temperatures in the early 20°C and invitingly warm seas, the autumn months are ideal for coastal walking with superb backdrops across the Bay of Naples to Naples, Vesuvius and the Isle of Capri, wandering through ripe vineyards to take in the annual grape harvest and visiting the array of wonderful historic sights without the hoards and the heat.
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 a region fascinatingly shaped and influenced by its volcanic setting. 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 opportunity 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.
