Made in Italy
The tangy, citrus infused zest and flavor of Italy has been captured in a bottle, and is the nation’s signature vivid yellow colored liqueur known as ‘Limoncello’. As its name suggests, this distinctively bittersweet fragrant spirit tingles your taste buds with the sharp essence of lemons harvested from traditional groves situated around the panoramic Amalfi Coast in the Campania region of southern Italy.
Sipping an iced glass of Limoncello at sunset is Italy’s perfect wind-down after a busy day touring this spectacular coastal resort which stretches over 30 miles beside the Tyrrhenian Sea, and visiting notable attractions including the striking 9th century Amalfi Cathedral and the mystical emerald caves of Grotto dello Smeraldo.
Guided Tour, The Vatican
Undisputedly the world’s most cherished and famous masterpiece by Renaissance artist Michelangelo is the breathtaking ceiling fresco artwork adorning the Sistine Chapel, the grand papal chapel built within the Vatican complex.
This holiest of holy institutions forms the global headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church and is the sacred home of the Pope. So significant is this religious foundation that it sits at the center of its very own Vatican City, a totally independent city-state surrounded by Rome, and is the smallest state in the world.
An exclusive guided tour of the Vatican brings you face to face with the treasures of art and architecture highlighted in St.Peter’s Basilica, the Castel Sant’Angelo, and the Apostilic Palace.
Walking Guided Tour, Island of Capri
All the charm, elegance, history and vibrant spirit of Italy blend tastefully together in the enchanting island of Capri. This picturesque Italian ‘jewel’ set within the turquoise tinted Gulf of Naples has maintained its massive popularity and widespread appeal since the ancient Roman Republic era.
Capri overflows with national treasures both in natural and hand crafted form. Hidden within its sheer faced, soaring cliffs are caves and lagoons, the most famous of which is the Grotta Azzurra, the blue grotto which was originally employed as a Roman bathing facility. Stroll the resplendent Gardens of Augustus, ride the scenic ‘Funicolar’ cableway from the city center ‘Piazzetta’ to the oceanside Port of Marina Grande as part of your guided tour of this idyllic island.
