Perillo Tours' nine-day trip to Italy starts in Rome and heads south to scenic towns along the Amalfi Coast. The first four days are spent seeing classic landmarks of the Italian capital: the Roman Forum, Colosseum, the Vatican, St. Peter's Basilica as well as the city's Jewish Ghetto.

Then it's off to the coast by coach for a tour of Pompeii by day and a stay at a 12th-century convent turned seaside hotel. Participants sail to Positano and then on to Sorrento, all within the shadow of Mount Vesuvius. More village stops at Cilento, Paestum, the Blue Grotto of Capri, and a visit to a mozzarella factory too. The trip ends in Naples.

The deal: The offer takes $400 off the cost for two people who book by Aug. 15.

Date: The discount applies to an Oct. 19 departure. Other tours leave on dates in August through October.

Price: $3,490 per person, double occupancy. It includes hotels, coach transportation, airport transfers, daily breakfast, some dinners and lunches and tour guides. International airfare is extra.
