Go on a day trip along the Amalfi Coast, combining two of Italy’s most iconic locations into a single unforgettable day
The Amalfi Coast and the ruins of Pompeii are two of Italy's most iconic destinations - but most people don't realize that they're manageable on a day trip from Rome. Meet your fluent, English-speaking tour leader and hop onboard our air-conditioned minibus for a well-balanced adventure. We'll even have you home in time for dinner.
Your day starts early in central Rome, where we pick you up before rush hour and slip out of the city for the 3.5-hour drive to Pompeii. Once there you'll meet a local archaeologist, the perfect person to lead this leg of your adventure. Explore 2,000 year-old streets and the ruins of houses, restaurants, temples, business, and (if appropriate for the group) brothels. As you wander the streets, your guide will tell you stories of the rise of this once-bustling city and its catastrophic demise after the eruption of nearby Mt. Vesuvius.
Timings on our Pompeii tour change to suit the visitor flow on that particular day. In most cases, we visit Pompeii early in the morning, before the cruise ships arrive. However, there are days where cruise ships arrive early and we flip the tour, to visit Pompeii in the quieter afternoon. Whatever the timing on your tour, rest assured that your day will be carefully planned to get you the best experience possible.
After Pompeii you'll get back into the van to enjoy one of the most beautiful drives in the world, as you head into the fabled Amalfi Coast. Snap a few pictures from unbelievable lookout points, as your tour leader tells you the history of this stretch of coastline, which has changed from a collection of fishing villages to one of the most visited areas of Italy.
You'll disembark in the lovely town of Positano where you can enjoy a leisurely lunch of fresh seafood, shop in the fashionable boutiques, or even hop into the blue waters of the Bay of Naples (don't forget to bring a swimsuit!)
After an enchanting afternoon you'll board your transport for the final drive back to Rome. You should be back in your hotel room just in time for a late meal.
Exploring Pompeii from Rome is a busy day, but an unforgettable one.
