We’ll be based in enchanting Sorrento, overlooking the Gulf of Naples, where we'll stay six nights in a lovely boutique hotel. We'll travel along world-renowned Amalfi Drive to see the breathtaking views unlike anywhere in the world... we'll visit and experience all three famous Amalfi Coast villages - Ravello, Amalfi & Positano... we'll take a day trip traveling by hydrofoil to the island of Capri to visit and paint at Villa San Michele in Anacapri... we'll embrace the local ambiance and engage with the local people... and enjoy delicious Southern Italian cuisine.

Each day we'll feed our creative souls. There will be painting sessions in scenic Southern Italy coastal locations. Catherine will provide demonstrations and offer individual personal instruction designed to improve your painting skills and expand your art experience. Along with your paintings, you'll take home many treasured memories of an exciting & fun-filled Amalfi Coast painting holiday and creative adventure.

 

We'll paint in Sorrento's historic city center with its narrow lanes, ancient buildings and majestic views of the Gulf of Naples... plus take day trips to:

  • Ravello & Amalfi - We'll travel by private van along the breathtaking Amalfi Coast to Ravello to visit Villa Cimbrone Garden and its stunning Terrace of Infinity, one of the world's most beautiful views... then travel on to Amalfi to visit the 6th-century Duomo di Sant'Andrea Apostolo.

  • Positano - We'll take a ferry (weather permitting) to the picturesque coast town of Positano where jet-setters flock from the world over.

  • Capri - We'll travel by hydrofoil to the island of Capri where we'll ride in Capri's unique open air taxis to the hilltop village of Anacapri and visit Villa San Michele and its lush garden overlooking the Gulf of Naples.

The trip includes many extras -- a welcome reception with Italian hors d'oeuvres and wines... cocktail hour soirees with local wines... limoncello tasting... farewell gala dinner with traditional Southern Italian cuisine and local wines.

There will be personal free time for... added individual painting... taking an afternoon private tour to the Pompeii archaeological site -- a recommended “must see” for anyone who has not visited Pompeii, the astounding UNESCO World Heritage Site, which over 2,000 years ago was a striving & sophisticated Roman city, buried under meters of ash and pumice after the catastrophic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D...  shopping in Sorento's outdoor markets and luxury boutiques... wandering on your own through Sorrento's historic city center discovering its old world charm... soaking up the warm Southern Italy sunshine and swimming in the Tyrrhenian Sea... relaxing poolside or at an outdoor cafe.
