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.

Great trip, wish we had more time in Amalfi

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Great tour and would highly recommend to others. Driver picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off with the larger tour group downtown. Half day at Pompeii was sufficient to see all the major excavations. Lunch was wonderful with freshly prepared selections. The tour of the Amalfi Coast was spectacular. Tour guide and driver did a great job highlighting major venues with several stops along the way for some local sight seeing, shopping. Only glitch for us was that we booked late the previous day and the local tour company didn't have our reservation for the current day. So, we had to reschedule for the following day. If you decide to book day prior, just make sure you verbally confirm with the local tour company day of tour.
