Naples, Amalfi, & Capri Itinerary:

Each day of the Naples, Amalfi & Capri Mother & Daughter trip will focus on a different aspect of Southern Italian culture to discover together. These themed days feature educational activities, guided tours, tastings and demonstrations, mouth-watering meals, and a fabulous private taxi and boat tour. While Naples will be our home base for the entirety of the trip, we will make various excursions outside the city to explore the famed Amalfi Coast, the unbeatable sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum, and the stunning Island of Capri.

A Southern Italian Welcome: After your arrival, meet the rest of the mothers and daughters, as well as your Naples guide. See the gorgeous Bay of Naples and the Posillipo peninsula from the comfort of our private coach. Afterwards, join us for a welcome dinner right on the water.

Slow down in Sunny Sorrento: Head to the Sorrentine peninsula and the gorgeous city of Sorrento for the day. Enjoy a guided walking tour of the city center with time for exploring, shopping, and lunch. Then, with the help of florist Pia Ruoppo, experience a very special mother-daughter afternoon of flowers and, of course, lemons. Design a floral arrangement with your travel buddy while sampling some of the local specialties (including homemade lemonade!)

The lido of Naples: Head out to one of the beautiful local beaches along the coast of Posillipo for a day of sun and relaxing. We’ll have reserved chairs and umbrellas for our group so relax, put your feet up and summer like the Italians do.

Ancient Naples: Pompeii & Herculaneum: Today, we head out to the world-famous sites of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Join our local guide for a behind-the-scenes look at these unparalleled remnants of the Roman world. Learn all about that fateful day in 79 AD when Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried both towns for almost 2000 years. Then join us for a group lunch.

Hit the Coast: Positano, Amalfi, & Ravello: Enjoy the day in the stunning (must-be-seen-to-be-believed) coastal towns of Positano and Amalfi. We’ll enjoy shopping and lunch in the jaw-dropping city of Positano and then we’ll visit the gorgeous cathedral and the “Cloister of Paradise” in Amalfi. We’ll walk through the winding streets, visit some of the local shops, and enjoy one of the most famed views in the world.

Naples Now: Spaccanapoli and the Sansevero Chapel: Head into the heart of Naples. Take a stroll down Spaccanapoli, the city’s most famous street and explore the amazing culture at the heart of modern Naples. Then join us for a very special after hours visit to the famed Sansevero Chapel where our group will have our own private viewing of the breathtaking sculptures by Antonio Corradini, Francesco Queirolo, and, in particular, Giuseppe Sanmartino’s famed Veiled Christ.

Garden of Delights: Capri Diem: Catch the ferry and head over to the famed Island of Capri. See what all the fuss is about and find out why so many people, including Roman emperors, have been vacationing here for centuries. See both Capri and Anacapri from the comfort of private Taxis and then explore the island’s caves and grottos up close from the comfort of our private boat. Take a dip at the foot of the one of its breathtaking cliffs, and then soak up a day of sun, sand, and sea before heading back to Naples.

General Information:

Each of our trips is carefully designed to create a unique mother-daughter experience for sorority members, alumnae, their mothers or daughters (or grandmothers, granddaughters, aunts, nieces, goddaughters, godmothers, and sisters). Each itinerary includes personalized touches, guided excursions to breathtaking sites, exclusive activities, and memorable (mouth-watering) meals. We strive to make each day better than the day before, blending immersive travel and hands-on activities with guided sightseeing and time for personal exploration to find the perfect balance for your trip.
 
Frequently asked questions:
I can’t travel with my mom/daughter. Does that mean I can’t come?
Of course not! We know there are lots of different forms of “mother” and “daughter” relationships and we welcome them all. We have had granddaughters and grandmothers, stepmoms and stepdaughters, aunts and nieces, surrogate moms, and even sisters traveling in honor of their mom. What we prize are these strong female relationships and women traveling and growing together.
 
My sister (or another family member) wants to come, too. Can three people come together?
Of course she can come! We’ve had many moms with two daughters join us before and are happy to accommodate a triple room. Prices listed are per person.
 
What are your affiliate sororities?
We work with Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Phi, Delta Gamma, Gamma Phi Beta, Sigma Kappa, and Tri Sigma.
 
My mom and/or daughter is not part of a sorority, can we still attend?
Yes! Only one of you has to be a current member or alumnae to attend!
 
I am affiliated with a different sorority, can I still join this trip?
We are currently working with the above-mentioned sororities, but our network is always growing. Apply as “other” and we’ll contact you directly.
