Island Jewels of The Bay of Naples

Capri, Ischia & Procida
Self Guided Tour - 8 Days / 7 Nights

Island hop to the three main islands in the dreamy Bay Of Naples, all rich with natural and cultural treasures. The smallest and least known is Procida and like its neighbour Ischia, is of volcanic origin. Procida’s beauty lies in its coloured houses and picturesque inlets. Ischia is known as the ‘green island’ and is the largest of the three with mountains rising to over 600m. There are a variety of walks past cave dwellings, a medieval castle, through forests, along deserted beaches, terraced vineyards and historic villages. Finally the world famous island of Capri awaits with its amazing Roman villas, impressive cliffs and fashionable ‘dolce vita’.
