What You Can Expect

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Day Trip from Naples

Enjoy the view of Mont Vesuvius!

Leave central Naples hotel in the morning and travel inland by luxury coach toward Pompeii. Sure to impress, the ancient city lay buried for centuries under a blanket of volcanic ash and rubble following Mount Vesuvius’ eruption in AD 79. After paying for your entrance ticket, hear all about the volcanic eruption from your guide as you explore the UNESCO-listed site, seeing intriguing fossils of animals and villagers that perished as well as monumental ruins like the Temple of Venus.

Hop back on board your coach and head back to the coast, stopping on the way to visit a locally renowned cameo and corals factory. This family-owned business started one of the most ancient Neapolitan traditions – the making of carved coral jewelry. See craftsmen at work and then walk to the nearby 18th-century Ristorante Vesuvio – designed in authentic Pompeiana style – for lunch.

After relaxing in the restaurant, it’s time to discover the enchanting Amalfi Coast! Working your way north along Campania’s scenic coastal roads, pass pastel-colored towns etched into the hillside and see thriving fishing ports framing the turquoise Tyrrhenian Sea. While its scenery is definitely the area’s star attraction, the Amalfi Coast also has a penchant for producing ceramics. Take a quick detour away from the coast to see the trade being plied first-hand at a typical ceramic workshop and then continue your journey north.

Stop to enjoy half an hour of free time in the super-chic town of Amalfi, perhaps lounging with a gelato (own expense) in its sun-baked piazza or strolling around the streets. Meet back on board your coach at the pre-arranged time and head back to Naples – arriving at central Naples in the late afternoon.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

A bit of a mess up in the beginning with our tour guide but we were taken good care of by our driver. The second part, the amalfi unfortunately had landslides so we couldn't go but our amazing tour guide/ driver was fantastic, taking us to beautiful sorrento. His enthusiasm and energy was great!

There were three of us on this tour ranging in age 38-62. The first part of our tour was with Luccia and Musafa. Musafa was an amazing driver and Luccia did an excellent job keeping everything organized and everyone where they were going. It was the coldest windy day they said they had seen, but they were still excited and informative. Take cash/Euro for the shops if you can. They cameo factory and other shops will barter or give discounts for cash. The lunch was perfect and traditional. Now for the second part of our trip, yes you are on a bus, but what a ride and what a view!!!! Our driver was so competent, highly skilled, and extremely funny!! I'm embarrassed to say that I don't remember his name. We all loved him. He does stop as frequently as is necessary for great pictures!! He told us that he had previously been a polizia and that he is a talkie talkie driver :-) we enjoyed the entire trip so very much.
