Naples is the region's capital and filled with historic castles and sites. The city was first colonized by the ancient Greeks, who gave it the name Neapolis (new city). Today, Naples' city center is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
A short distance from Naples stands the once lost city of Pompeii. Covered in ash from a volcanic eruption in 79 B.C., the site was only accidentally discovered during renovations some 1,700 years later.
Winding along coastal roads, the rugged town of Amalfi emerges with its colorful terraces perched along steep slopes. In the public squares below, take your pick of restaurants and linger in souvenir shops where red coral jewelry is the signature accessory.
After departing Rome, drive along the "Sun Route" motorway and cross the regions of Lazio and Campania. Once in Naples, enjoy a short city tour before continuing towards Pompeii where lunch in a restaurant is provided. A UNESCO World Heritage listed site, Pompeii is one of the must see attractions of Italy. You will visit the excavations of this world-famous Roman town, destroyed by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Next it's onto Amalfi for overnight stay.
Day 2: Amalfi (B)
Take a full day to enjoy Amalfi's breathtaking coast along its famous promenade. Make your own way up to the Cathedral, with its splendid Bell Tower overlooking the small town below. In the center of the Piazza del Duomo catch a glimpse of Fontana del Popolo, before walking through the old quarter, lined with its picturesque shops. Overnight in your hotel.
Day 3: Amalfi, Pompeii, Rome (B)
After breakfast, enjoy another free morning before departing back to Rome via Pompeii.

This trip was brilliant. The Amalfi coast is beautiful and very picturesque. The hotel we stayed in was excellent and the bus ride from the hotel to Amalfi is something to be experienced. Pompeii was extraordinary and I also recommend taking a boat trip from Amalfi to Positano, to complete the experience.
