Day 1: Individual arrival in Castellammare di Stabia

You make your own way to Castellammare di Stabia. One of the most traditional shipyards is right here in this shimmering green seaport on the Bay of Naples. The area is named after Stabiae, an old Roman settlement that was destroyed when Mount Vesuvius erupted. You embark at 18.00 and are offered a drink to welcome you aboard before having your first evening meal. Afterwards, you are acquainted with the agenda for the next few days.

Day 2: Round tour from Castellammare, approx. 15 km,  Castellammare – Sorrento (by boat)

An exciting day spent in the saddle following a circular cycle route that takes you to the ancient town of Pompeii is on the cards today. Greeks, Etruscans and Romans have all settled here at one time or another, and, similar to the town of Stabia, it was buried beneath hot lava in 79 A.D., when Mount Vesuvius erupted. The archaeological findings from this area are particularly valuable. Visit the archaeological excavations of the hidden city and feel as if you have been enchanted back in time. Later, take the boat to Sorrento, located on the peninsular of the same name. The most beautiful sunsets can be seen from here.

Day 3: Sorrento – Amalfi, approx. 35 km

Explore Sorrento in the morning. It is idyllically located on a plateau of tuff stone and surrounded by wonderful gardens of lemon trees. After the San Pietro pass, you follow the Amalfi coastal road, which was once considered the most beautiful in Europe. Positano is a delightful town with its colourful houses. Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones was inspired by the town and wrote the song Midnight Rambler in the cafes of Positano. Amalfi nestles idyllically up against green hills. You should definitely take the time to visit the beautiful cathedral.

Day 4: Amalfi – Cetara, approx. 30 / 40 km

Enjoy the tour along this breath-taking panoramic road along the coast. Picturesque villages such as Minori and Maiori are on your way to today's destination, Cetara. It's also worth taking a detour to see Ravello. You won't just be impressed by the cathedral of San Pantaleone but also by the amazing view over the Gulf of Salerno and the mountains of Cilento. Your bike tour takes you back to Cetara via Vietri.

Day 5: Cetara – Capri (by boat), day trip on Capri, Capri – Ischia (by boat)

In the morning you set off by boat to Capri. Once you have arrived, explore the island by boat. You can visit the Blue Grotto (Grotta Azzurra) where the sea shimmers a mysterious azure blue. Similarly worthy of a visit is the town of Capri and its well-known piazetta and the Faraglioni rocks off the coast of Capri. From there you have a unique view over the Bay of Naples, dominated by Mount Vesuvius. Next, you cross the Bay of Naples and sail to Ischia.

Day 6: Ischia Casamicciola – Sant Angelo, approx. 20 km

It’s time to explore the west coast of the island of Ischia today by bike. Enjoy the fresh seawater air and time spent discovering the many tiny villages on the island, before you arrive in Sant Angelo, at the southernmost point of the island, where you embark ship again.

Day 7: Sant Angelo – Procida – Pozzuoli – Castellammare di Stabia (by boat)

First, your boat takes you to Procida, which is the neighbouring island to Ischia, and then on to Naples – a crowning conclusion to your tour. Enjoy wandering through this wonderful, historic old town. The Baroque churches and palaces, the Galleria Umberto and San Carlo theatre are just a few of the many sights to be seen. And don’t forget to order a Spaghetti Napoli in one of the memorable Italian restaurants while you’re here. The boat takes you over to Castellamare di Stabia in the afternoon.

Day 8: Individual departure or extension of stay in Naples

Your bike and boat tour at the Amalfi coast is over after breakfast. However, if you wish to stay longer you can book some additional nights in Naples in a hotel of the national 4* category.
