What You Can Expect

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small Group Day Trip from Rome

See Pompeii on a day trip from Rome!

Your Amalfi Coast tour starts as you depart Rome by minivan for the drive south into the Campania region of Southern Italy. This is a small-group tour with maximum of 7 people per minivan, witch ensures a very personalized experience.

During the approximate 3-hour journey, your driver-guide will tell you about what to expect from the day. Then arrive at your first stop, the town of Amalfi, a former naval power now famous for its cliffside perch on the coast of the Tyrrenhian Sea. You have free time here to explore independently. Perhaps visit landmarks like the Cloister of Paradise (Chiostro del Paradiso), relax over a coffee or limoncello at a café (own expense), or take a walk to admire the Mediterranean architecture.

Next, head to Positano, stopping along the way for photo ops from the coastal road. Once again, you have free time in the village to get lunch (own expense) and explore on your own, enjoying views of the sea and hillside homes. Then meet back up with your guide to continue your day trip to Pompeii for a 2-hour guided tour of its World Heritage–listed ruins that were covered in volcanic ash from the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD. As you explore with your guide, learn about the discovery of the ruins in the 18th century and hear stories about life in the village during the days of Ancient Rome.

Your day trip then ends with the drive back to Rome.

A great experience. Our driver, Max, was prompt, courteous, and provided just the right amount of commentary throughout the day. Made appropriate stops for photo taking. He did an excellent job of driving under not so easy conditions. The guide at Pompeii was extraordinary. His knowledge of the life and explanations of the village and the ruins were exceptional. Overall our expectations were met and in the case of the tour of Pompeii, our expectations were exceeded.

Excellent tour! Kind of fast, but realistically that's the only way you can do it all in one day!.

Very well organized trip. We love that we were picked up and dropped off at our hotel. Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius was breathtaking. Our Pompeii guide, Gaetano, was excellent, very informative, passionate and witty. Would have preferred to have a bit more time in Pompeii compared to the time spent in Positano. Our driver/guide, Max, kept us safe from the winding mountain roads. Overall, a very good experience. Thank you.

This was the best tour I have done during my holiday. Everything was more than perfect thanks to our guide Max who was kind, funny and had lots of information about everything we saw and about history. On the way to Pompei he gave us a lot of background information and prepared us for what we are going to see. The part in Pompei was really nice and fascinating and the guide there cant remember the name, maybe Franco? was very good. And then when we set up to the Amalfi Coast, the magic started. It was like a dream. On the way, Max showed us all the houses and all the interesting details and told us so many stories along the way. We also stopped for pictures which was really lovely because the views were just perfect. Also, during the drive Max was very thoughtful and kept checking if everyone was OK or if we needed anything. It was a difficult drive but he handled it really well and very safely. Positano was so amazing and the seafood I had there was one of the best I had in my life. Then we continued the drive to Amalfi which was so beautiful and romantic and the Limoncello I tried there was the best I had in my life. As the tour ended, Max did his best to get us back in Rome in good time. Special thanks to him for making this trip such an unforgettable experience. And also thanks to Achille who helped in everything. I highly recommend this tour. Really worth it.

This was hands down the best tour I have done during my holiday I did three in total. Everything was more than perfect thanks to our guide Max who did a wonderful job. On the way to Pompei he gave us lots of information about the region, history, culture, etc and prepared us for what we are going to see. The part in Pompei was really nice and fascinating. And then when we set up for the Amalfi Coast, the magic started. Unparallelled views of the bay and the sea accompanied with stories and details told by Max and Achille, the other guide. It was like a dream, and so was Positano, our first stop. They showed us all the houses and the interesting details along the way and we stopped for pictures which was really nice. During the tour, Max and Achille were both very thoughtful and kept checking if everyone was OK or if we needed anything. Max also handled the curvy roads of the Amalfi coast so well and was driving very safe. Positano was out of this world. and the sea food there was easily one of the best I have ever had. Then we continued to the drive to Amalfi which was magical and so romantic. Trying the Limoncello is a must, it's so fresh and tantalizing.. As the tour ended Max did his best to get us back to Rome in good time. Very special thanks to him and also to Achille who helped a lot. Wonderful job guys!
