3-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii and Amalfi

3-Day Italy Trip: Naples, Pompeii and Amalfi

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.

Day 1: Rome, Naples, Pompeii, Amalfi (L, D)
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.

Vesuvius in 79 A.D. Next it's onto Amalfi for overnight stay.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Very well organised. Guides were very informative and we had enough time out from walking and listening.
Most enjoyable trip. Loved Amalfi!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

We absolutely loved this tour. Miriam had very interesting information and Victorio was so passionate and knowledgable about Pompeii. I would not recommend the Naples part of the tour. We went on to Amalfi for 2 nights and highly recommend upgrading to the 4 star option. A very well organised tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2012

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2010

The staff was very professionaland knowledgeable. Our only frustration was waiting for translation for 2 people who were with an entire group of English speaking travelers. Our hotel in Almalfi had a breathtaking views. Thank You for making our excursion so memorable.

4 star rating: Recommended December 2014

Lovely 3 days with Sunny 25o days, The (opt.) trip to The Isle of Capri was a lovely day with our trip to The Blue Pools beautiful. I did however feel that the one fee you paid at Capri for this tour should have been inclusive of the entry to the cave which wasn't the case.Vivienne (Australia)

Excellent tour, very informative with good tour guide.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2011

The Amalfi coast is beautiful, and the trip overall was great, however, when we arrived at our hotel The Excelsior, they did not have a reservation for us, and we were given a small room, without a view and the air conditioning did not work. The hotel meals were very good and the hotel appeared overall to be a very nice and 4 star business. The hotel staff, with the exception of Anna Marie on the front desk who was surly and unfriendly, were polite and very friendly and made the guests feel welcome.

The walking tour of Naples was a bit short but considering that the highlight was Pompeii it was OK. The cameo factory tour was really not interesting and the items far too expensive for souvenirs to take home. Great views of the Tyrrhennian Sea from the Hotel Fontana in Amalfi and good to explore on our own. But we could have used some more advice on what's there to see. Overall a very good excursion.

Stop in Naples was a waste of time-more time could have been spend in Pompeii or SorrentoAmalfi. We should have gone to Sorrento but things got crossed and we were booked in Amalfi instead. Had to make reservations in Sorrento on our own and pay difference.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2015

Naples was a waste of time, Pompeii-good. At this point suppose to go to Sorrento but forced to separate from our friends due to a Viator miscommunication. Which was not remedied due to the fact that your dealing with a third party! Claudia tour guide was not very positive with her delivery.
