Two half-hour shows featuring:
Naples & the Amalfi Coast, Italy: Deep in the heart of Italy, Naples is the ideal launching point for exploring some of the country’s great historic treasures. We marvel at the ancient city of Pompeii and the devastation of Mount Vesuvius and we trek across a still-active volcano. Then we move on to stylish Sorrento, where we sample luscious gelato and hop a ferry to the isle of Capri. We drive the thrilling Amalfi coast to take in spectacular views, and further south we visit Paestum, home to the best Greek ruins outside of Greece.
Tips on Capri’s funicular and Pompeii’s train.
Rome, Italy: Rudy is in the city where all roads lead – Roma. We begin in ancient Rome – the Forum, Palatine Hill, Colosseum, and Baths of Caracalla. Then we explore modern Roman life on the streets and in cafes, pizzerias and gelaterias. We detour to another country, Vatican City, then shop along the Corso and relax at the Piazza di Spagna. Rudy’s pick for best city walks are a tour of the historic center and a stroll in shady Trastevere.
