Naples, founded by the Greeks on one of the most scenic corners of Southern Italy, is postcard perfect, located between Vesuvius and the Gulf. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995, the historical center is preserved for its noble palaces, churches, museums, theaters and castles. Naples was the capital of the biggest kingdom in southern Italy for 600 years, and still retains the splendor of those times. Sampling great food is a must in Naples, where you can find great pizza or pasta. Discover its famous pastry while enjoying a café in Via Toledo or Via Chiaia, the most charming streets in the center. Our lodging, the Grand Hotel Santa Lucia, is a historical building with neoclassical furniture and a romantic atmosphere. Located right on the seafront facing Castel dell’Ovo and close to the Real Palace, it’s the perfect spot to discover this city of traditions, art and warm hospitality.

DAY 1: Begin your optional extension
Spend the day exploring the “Eternal City.” You can step out of Italy while you're still in Rome with a visit to the Vatican, an independent state.

DAY 2: Independent exploration of Rome
Today's opportunities are endless. You might visit the Forum, the political and commercial center of ancient Rome when the empire was at the height of its power. Various emperors constructed the temples, monuments and other structures here over a period of nine centuries. Today you can still see the Curia, where the Roman Senate met. Or walk up the Palatine Hill, where tradition says the first settlers of Rome built their huts, and which was later the home of emperors Caligula, Nero, Tiberius and Domitian. Tour Rome's famous Catacombs, located in tunnels carved out of rock along the Via Appia Antica, or Appian Way.” Or spend an idyllic afternoon in the gardens of the Villa Borghese, one of Europe's most elegant parks. And by all means, do as the Romans do—sip espresso, savor Italian wine, and take the time to enjoy la dolce vita. After a full day of independent exploration, retire to your hotel or enjoy dinner in one of Rome's many fine restaurants. Hotel: Hotel Giulio Cesare Meals: B
