Tour description

Welcoming everyone back for another great BRAG tour organized by Gloria and Jerry Colley, former CEO of BRAG.

This is a journey that will take place both on land and on water, searching the natural treasures and cultural heritage spotted along the Amalfi Coast and the Gulf of Naples. A cruise on board a ship that has all the style of the ancient caique, a type of boat that is a legend itself, just as it is the sea under our feet.

Our guides lead us through Pompeii and the Villa dei Misteri, the world's largest open-air archaeological site in the world. We will enjoy in-depth, historical insights throughout the tour in many of the coastal cities, piazzas, and ports.

This is not just a matter of watching and observing, but a truly active journey intended to combine boating and relaxing with cycling along the narrow streets of Capri, Pompeii, Procida, Ischia Islands, and Sorrento.
