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 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 to get the inside scoop on many of the main sights right around the corner from where you’re staying. Afterwards, enjoy a welcome dinner together.

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!)

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 August 79 AD when Mount Vesuvius erupted and changed the face of the city, bay of Naples, and the Amalfi Coast forever.

 
Naples Now: Archeological Museum & Spaccanapoli: Now that we’ve seen the sites of PompeIi and Herculaneum in person, we’re ready to see their historical treasures up close in the famous Archeological Museum of Naples. Our guide will help us to dig even deeper into the incredible culture that was captured by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Then, take a stroll down Spaccanapoli, the city’s most famous street and explore the amazing culture at the heart of modern Naples, including the breathtaking Veiled Christ sculpture in the Sansevero Chapel.

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

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 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.
