What You Can Expect

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small Group Day Trip from Rome

See Pompeii on a day trip from Rome!

Leave your Rome hotel in the early morning, and head to the Campania region in the south of Italy. Your journey lasts around three hours, but your minivan is comfortable and air conditioned, and your driver-guide will explain the day’s itinerary on the way.

First stop is the picture-perfect town of Amalfi, on the luscious Amalfi Coast. Once a major naval power, the town is now known for its stunning coastal scenery; it clings to a jagged rock face looking down over the turquoise Tyrrhenian Sea. Enjoy free time here to stretch your legs on a walk around, admiring the town’s typically Mediterranean architecture, where houses seem to be built on top of each other as they straddle the hillside! Rest in one of the cafés and sample a shot of limoncello (own expense), or perhaps check out the Cloister of Paradise (Chiostro del Paradiso) -- an intriguing Arabian-style hamlet.

Continue by minivan to the neighboring village of Positano, passing along a stunning coastal road with stops peppered in for photo stops. Enjoy free time for lunch in the village (own expense), and to explore. Gaze in admiration at the white- and pastel-colored houses that smatter the hillside, and perhaps take a stroll along its perfectly groomed beaches.

Meet your guide at the pre-arranged time, and then head inland toward the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii -- the world-famous ancient village that lay buried under layers of volcanic ash for centuries. Explore the area with your guide on a 2-hour walking tour, documenting the site’s history from AD 79 when Mount Vesuvius erupted, to the early 18th century when it was ‘discovered.’ Hear history come to life with tales of ancient Romans who once lived here.

From Pompeii, return north to Rome by minivan. Your tour then finishes back at your hotel in the late evening.

A great tour. Worth every cent. Could rotate seating occasionally so everybody could get a better view.

Rosa was our guide and driver - we had a wonderful trip. She narrated the 13 hour trip and the local guide at Pompeii was funny, informative, and breathed life into the ruins. We completely enjoyed our day.

Fabulous trip! Anna was great, even though she had a terrible cold.

Excellent tour! Excellent tour guide! Positano was my favourite place in Italy! It's a shame I didn't have time to go for a swim! The water looked amazing! I would definitely go back to Positano, Sorrento and Amalfi Coast on my own to spend as much time as I want there!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Our guide Roberto was patient on the road and managed to drive us to all the destinations within the stipulated timing. He also managed to provide us with the necessary information during the course of the drive. Guide at Pompeii was enthusiastic and managed to lead us around even though most of us are tired after a long minivan ride in the morning. Overall the tour is well-organised with scenic views throughout.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Great way to see Pompeii, Positano and Amalfi in a day. Pompeii tour guide was excellent. Driver for the day was excellent. Mini van was ok, could have been a little more comfortable. Would recommend.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

The small group is nice it would have been nicer if some of the people had a concept of time. Pompeii is amazing. It was a long day with a lot of sitting, but worth it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Excellent tour and on time. The best part was the guide and historian at Pompeii. So many interesting stories and so pleasant and efficient. Not enough time in Amalfie Coast cause I wanted to stay forever:. The driver picked us up on time at the hotel and was very friendly. I highly recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Our driver/guide, Roberto, was fantastic! He was very prompt with the pick-up time. He was welcoming and answered all of our questions. Our guide at Pompeii was not as welcoming. While he provided us with information and the tour, he did not stop and wait for any questions from individuals. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone willing to do a full day trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

While it was a long day, everything ran very smoothly. Our driver/guide Andreas was at the hotel right on time to pick us up, and we were on our way fairly quickly. The way it seemed to operate was there were 3 vans each with 8 passengers based on the proximity of our hotels. Our guide at Pompeii was fabulous - waiting for us to arrive, very knowledgeable and easy to understand. Our time in Positano for lunch was maybe a little longer than it needed to be. All in all a great day.
