Day Trip From Rome: Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast Small Group Excursion
Explore incredible archaeological sites at Pompeii with an expert guide. Relax and enjoy a drive along the Amalfi Coast with a stop at Positano town
DURATION: UP TO 13-HOURS
on this full day small group excursion from Rome, you will embark on an in-depth exploration of the ruins at Pompeii and enjoy a relaxing drive along the beautiful Amalfi Coast, with time to let your hair down and explore the jewelbox seaside town of Positano.
Few places send shivers up your spine like Pompeii, the thriving Roman city frozen in time by the volcanic eruption of 79 A.D. The volcanic ash preserved Pompeii’s buildings, streets, mosaics, and frescoes, making Pompeii a site unlike any other in Italy: It’s a complete ancient city you can explore just as if it were 2,000 years ago!
Arriving in Pompeii from Rome, you’ll meet a certified Pompeii tour guide. You guide will be a passionate archaeologists and at some point most have worked on the excavations themselves, so they really know the area. Together you’ll explore the best of Pompeii, from the Roman Forum and the brothel to the world-famous plaster casts of those killed in the eruption. You'll even pay a special visit to Pompeii amphitheater, not visited on most Pompeii tours. Feel the site come to life with your guide’s dramatic stories and fascinating anecdotes about what life was like before and during the eruption.
We time your visit to Pompeii to avoid the worst crowds, so either before or after your Pompeii tour, you'll head further south. The local guide will accompany you as you revel in the stunning views and exciting twists and turns of a panoramic drive down the Amalfi Coast. Along the way you’ll hear stories about life in this beautiful region of Italy and get some background about our next stop – lovely Positano. A pastel resort town perched on the cliffs, Positano is renowned for its romance and elegance.
Follow in the footsteps of Shelley, Goethe, Steinbeck, and the town’s myriad other famous visitors as you climb Positano’s winding staircases and explore its narrow streets. Poke into the upscale boutiques, order sandals made to fit your feet or relax over a fresh fish lunch, all the while admiring unbeatable views.
