Day 2: Pompeii - Amalfi 
After a delightful Neapolitan breakfast, we'll start the day with a private tour of the National Archaeological Museum which features the world's best collection of Roman antiquities, frescoes and mosaics from Pompeii and Herculaneum. After touring the museum, we'll leave Naples and head into the shadow of Mount Vesuvius and the ancient Pompeii. The ruins of this Roman resort town, tragically destroyed by the eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79, continue to fascinate as much as when they were first rediscovered in the 18th century. We'll spend the morning with an expert Pompeii guide, exploring the ancient site and getting in-depth insights into the rich culture of this ill-fated Roman city, with its restored villas, mosaics, statues, gardens and fountains. In the afternoon, we'll continue around the Bay of Naples and along the Sorrento Peninsula to our elegant, beachfront hotel in the town of Amalfi, overlooking some of the world's most celebrated views. After settling in, we'll dine on a terrace overlooking the Mediterranean, as we enjoy local culinary specialties and the special regional drink: limoncello.

Day 3: Amalfi 
This morning, we'll tour the town of Amalfi, once a maritime empire rivaling Pisa and Genoa, as we visit the ornate Duomo and the town's medieval quarters. In the early afternoon, we'll set off to explore the Amalfi Coast from the sea. Our private boat tour will allow us to visit otherwise inaccessible coves, beaches and fishing villages. We'll travel along the Secret Coast, past the Emerald Grotto, the Furore Fjord and the beautiful town of Atrani, with tiny houses clutching the rugged hillsides, then along the Mormorata Cascade and Bellvaia Grotto for a swim, before continuing along the shore, dotted with ravines, secret beaches, grottoes, Norman watch towers, forgotten inlets, breath-taking gorges and pristine areas of stalactites. This is a perfect day to relax, appreciate the solitude and the wonders of nature.
Meals: B, L
Accommodations: Hotel Marina Riviera, Amalfi

Day 4: Amalfi - Capri 

In the morning, we'll travel to the most uniquely beautiful Mediterranean island: Capri. Our tour of the island will start with circumnavigating it in a small boat, passing through the famous Faraglioni Rocks formation and by the island's fascinating terrain dotted with many grottoes: Green, White and Blue. Afterwards, we'll take the funicular to the picturesque Piazzetta from where you can explore the town's narrow lanes, leading to spectacular vistas from the Gardens of Augustus or to hidden gems like Charterhouse of St. Giacomo and its cloisters and gardens with flowers and spices from which the monks extracted essences to make perfumes. If time allows, we'll also venture out to Anacapri, where you can visit the magnificent Villa San Michele or take the chair lift up Monte Solaro for the most breathtaking view of the island. In the late afternoon, we'll take the ferry back to Amalfi and dine at an atmospheric restaurant overlooking the lit up, sparkling Amalfi Coast.
Meals: B, D
Accommodations: Hotel Marina Riviera, Amalfi

Day 5: Amalfi - Paestum 

Today, we'll travel to Paestum. The gleaming white marble columns of Greek temples, set against the silver mountains and deep blue sea, offer an unforgettable experience, especially when seen at sunset. The town was founded around 650 BC by Dorians expelled from the Greek city of Sybaris, a luxurious resort on the Ionian Sea. The colony was named Poseidonia, after the most important Greek god, and it flourished as one of Magna Grecia's great towns until it fell to a tribe of local barbarians in 390 BC. After touring Paestum with an excellent historian guide, we'll visit an organic buffalo mozzarella farm for a tour and tasting of buffalo milk cheese and ice cream.
Meals: B, L
Accommodations: Hotel Marina Riviera, Amalfi

Day 6: Amalfi - Ravello 
After breakfast, we'll head out to explore the delightful town of Ravello, which many consider the most beautiful town in Italy. Sitting on its own balcony, Ravello has long been a haven for artists such as Richard Wagner, Greta Garbo, D. H. Lawrence and Virginia Woolf. We'll enjoy a private tour of the beautiful architecture and gardens of Villa Cimbrone and Villa Rufolo, visit a tiny shop producing limoncello, and for a full Amalfian experience, we'll attend an organic Amalfian cooking lesson. Food and wine are an integral part of the way of life on the Amalfi Coast. Influenced by ancient Phoenicians, Greeks and Arabs, enriched by crusaders returning from Palestine with citrus trees and by French and Spanish invaders, the local cuisine is known for its fresh produce, prepared simply and quickly to preserve the flavors of fresh ingredients. The produce is grown in the rich volcanic soil and the Amalfi Coast perfect climate gives it a unique, incomparable flavor. During the cooking class, we'll learn new ways to prepare the Italian specialties like pasta and Italian cakes, using local vegetables, fruit, walnuts and herbs.
Meals: B, D
Accommodations: Hotel Marina Riviera, Amalfi

Day 7: Amalfi - Positano 
Today, we'll visit the town of Positano, impossibly suspended over the Mediterranean. Considered the most picturesque of all Amalfi towns, Positano is known for the brightly colored houses, clinging to cliffs as if they're about to tumble into the turquoise water, for its beautiful sandy and pebbly beaches, expensive fashion shops, famous visitors and the number of steps you need to climb to get anywhere. We'll tour the town with a local guide, sample local products in small, family operated shops and after some free time, we'll return to Amalfi, where we'll finish the day with a romantic farewell dinner at a restaurant overlooking the stunning Coast of the Sirens.

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
