Pozzuoli

Just a few miles north of Naples, Pozzuoli is an especially great destination inviting visitors to a loaded menu of archaeological discoveries.

 

Your kids might not relish history lessons at school but snorkeling around a sunken Roman city is something else. Go to the submerged archeological park of Baia for some diving and snorkeling fun through Roman statues and mosaics.

 

The nearby underground archaeological path of Rione Terra is an altogether an ancient and modern experience - with virtual reality exploration of te ancient Roman life - while budding geologists will love the bubbling mud of La Solfatara, a shallow volcanic crater part of a giant volcano.

 

Take a break from all the learning with a picnic by Lake Avernus, a volcanic crater-lake once thought to be the entrance to Hades. It's here the Odysseus meets Elpenor his comrade who went missing after his death on Circe's island.

 

The best way to get to grips with this ancient town is on a walking tour - there are lots of themes to choose from, whether your crew is into food, archeology or geology.

Ischia

Move over to Ischia where the ancient history, volcanic activities and astonishing marine life are enough to inspire any flagging historian, geologist or biologist student.

 

The largest island of the Bay of Naples has a winning mix of beachy beauty, volcanic activities and ancient history that makes it perfect for a family seaside holiday with brains.

 

Visit the Aragonese Castle, displaying different layers of history all the way back when the Greeks made it their colony. Spend some time on the beach of San Montano, relax at the Negombo Thermal Gardens and get active again with a geological walk among the island's hot springs and fumaroles.

Here, you have seven full days, so take it easy and make the most of the tranquil seaside atmosphere.

This is the third occasion that Antonio has organised an Italian holiday for me. As it was a Birthday celebration involving a party of 10, the arrangements were complex, involving a villa, guides and attendance at the Palio on July 2nd. Without exception everything went exactly as planned. The recommended villa on the Montestigliano Estate, south west of Siena, was wonderful. Our guide made sure we had a full understanding of the history and culture of the Palio which meant that, with a spectacular view over the Campo from the apartment booked by Antonio, we were able to appreciate the event that much more. We shall certainly be going back to Italy with Expertoitaly.read more

Antonio with his meticulous planning and caring service has been solely responsible for the best Italian holidays we have had. His ability to offer excellent hotel accommodation which provides for every need and requirement is second to none . Hotels that are not main stream , that provide high quality of service in excellent locations are one of Antonio’s strength. It’s great to have a provider that know and understands his market.

July 2018 _________________________________ Have just completed another 10 day holiday arranged by Antonio at Expert to Italy. We went with Antonio's suggestion and spent 2 days at Matera and then the remainder in Pisciotta in the Cilento. Matera was amazing and felt completely different to anywhere else we have been in Italy. We loved Pisciotta and the hotel was wonderful with lovely owners who were great at suggesting things to do. We visited a buffalo farm, a vinyard and tooks boats to isolated coves with lovely clear water. All arrangements were absolutely faultless. We would never have found such lovely places without Antonio! 2016 _________________________________ We have just returned from a fantastic holiday suggested no arranged by ExpertTo Italy. Once again the organisation by Antonio was flawless and everything worked perfectly. We spent 5 nights by lake Maggiore and 3 in Cogne in the Italian Alps. Both hotels and locations were fantastic - particularly the Bellvue in Cogne. Please see trip advisor if interested in the hotels as I will give a more specific review there - I'm not a fanatic reviewer but both really deserve it. We have used this company for the past 5 years and Antonio seems to have a real gift for finding fantastic hotels and matching locations to his clients. I would not usually put the level of trust in anyone to arrange holidays for me that I have with Antonio but he has delivered every time and I can unreservedly recommend his services. Italy is a beautiful country with huge variety - if you describe what you like to Antonio and let him make suggestions then you will not be disappointed. Very definitely 5 stars from me. So - Antonio and team, please keep it up! Jonread more

Antonio delivered more than expected! Our family of four stayed at two beautiful villa's on the Amalfi Coast. Both of the locations were top class. Antonio provided excellent service and was always available if we had questions about the details of our trip. He was easy to work with and we would recommend his services to others traveling to Italy.read more
