This “off the beaten path” guided tour of Italy takes you on a journey to discover world-renowned treasures in art, architecture, and history. Enjoy two-night-stays in Naples – home to centuries of some of the most important art and architecture Italy has to offer, in Lecce, the “Florence of the South,” and in the charming, seaside resort of Sorrento. Also, overnight in Bari and Castellana Grotte. Throughout the guided tour of Southern Italy, you’ll visit royal residences, as well as ancient Greek archaeological marvels. This Southern Italy escorted tour introduces you to local favorites such as delectable pastries and almond coffee, as well as truly remarkable architectural and historical structures. Visit a traditional trullo in Alberobello, discover the amazing ancient treasures awaiting you in the caves of Castellana Grotte, and the archaeological site of Paestum – as you traverse from the “heel of the boot” of Italy across to the opposite coastline, to Sorrento. Also, enjoy visits to the 13th-century octagonal citadel Castel del Monte, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and to the magnificent Palazzo Reale, royal residence of the Bourbons in Naples.

Truly, a feast for the mind, body, and soul, your escorted tour of Southern Italy will satisfy your curiosity in art and history – as well as your spirit of adventure – with hidden local treasures waiting to be discovered along the way.
