Act Now & Save $200 : Napoli + Flaming Fields + Isle of Isc

May 19 - 27, 2019 : Napoli + Flaming Fields + Ischia

This will be an unforgettable 9-day experience of luxury and adventure.

From your seaview balcony, you breathe in the sea air, lulled by the gentle rocking of the fishing boats in the quaint harbor below, taking in majestic Vesuvius to your left, and on your right, a mythic Castel dell'Ovo and behind it, the languorous curve of the Bay. 

You will explore lands north of Napoli so geologically unique as to spur the timeless tales of Homer and Virgil. 

Location. Location. Location. Come see for yourself why director Anthony Minghella set his film "The Talented Mr. Ripley" in this evocative, and picturesque Ischian village. You will not believe your stunning balcony view.  Five nights of bliss in your seaside, 4-star island accommodations.

The ultimate in relaxation and rejuvenation at the island's premiere spa. You will bathe in the temperature-regulated mineral pools (vulcanic waters are cooled to varying degrees with sea waters) with access to a shimmering private beach.  

Pleasure. There is good reason why Ischia is the oldest Greek colony in the "far west." Nicknamed "la isola verde" ( the "Green Island"), Ischia hosts rich volcanic soils that spawn a variety of verdant and exotic plantlife, delicious foods and wines, as well as medicinal waters and natural saunas-- all of which you will have the pleasure of experiencing.

Total price of 9-day itinerary : $4,450.
