Enjoy a semi-private (7-8 people per vehicle) day tour to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast from Rome and experience both the enchanting Amalfi Coast and the extraordinary Archeological Site of Pompeii.
On the way along the Amalfi Coast, stop at some scenic viewpoints before reaching Amalfi, a town that enjoyed a prestigious past when it was once a major naval power. Made up of a labyrinth of narrow lanes and alleyways that climbs the surrounding hills, the town features typical Mediterranean architecture style with houses piled one on top of the other. Here, you can sample the local limoncello in one of the many cafes or perhaps visit the celebrated Paradise Cloister, built in Arabian style that dates back to the 13th century.
After some free time to explore the town, your tour continues to Positano via the famous Amalfi Coast road, where the drive offers breathtaking views. You'll make several photo stops en route, giving you the possibility to capture the truly enchanting beauty of this part of Italy.
In Positano, enjoy free time for lunch and walk around this exclusive delightful village with its white and pastel-colored houses littered along the hillside. Along with the beautiful beaches, its ancient fishing port, the splendid majolica dome of the Church of Santa Maria Assunta and artisan shops, you'll definitely enjoy a taste of "Dolce Vita".
After lunch, you'll leave Positano and following the road uphill away from the coast, you'll start admiring views of the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius in all its glory.
Your next destination includes the famous Archaeological Site of Pompeii, where you'll enjoy a 2-hour tour conducted by a local English-speaking expert guide. Enjoy a journey back in time as you visit the must-see highlights of this site and learn about the habits, lifestyles and peculiarities of the Ancient Romans as you tour the ancient market areas, food stalls, typical Roman homes, brothels, and admire the delightful frescoes all preserved by an erupting volcano that still dominates Pompeii.
The tour will conclude back at your hotel in Rome.
