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.

The Amalfi Coast is simply wonderful. Pompeii was frozen in time, so we had an excellent opportunity to see how an ancient roman city was. Our guides were really good, during the trip and at Pompeii.

Excellent tour of Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast was excellent. The time of year was a little disadvantage but I would not hesitate to book the tour at all. Most do.

Excellent tour and driver was very knowledgeable and helpful. His knowledge of Pompeii coupled with our guide in the ruins gave us a view which would not have been possible if we were on our own. The Amalfi coast portion of the tour was very interesting and, again, our driver was able to satisfy all our quieries and steer us to the right restauants and shops. Worth both the time and cost of the tour

Really enjoyed this trip, it covers a lot in one day. I think I would have liked another 30-60 mins at Pompeii and just drive through Amalfi rather than stopping for an hour.

Tour was fabulous. Brando was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable and friendly, tour went without a glitch from the time we were picked up from the Westin Hotel to the time we were brought back. Tour guide in Pompeii was EXCELLENT - he brought the city to life for us - informative and very entertaining the man had charisma. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Warren and I enjoyed ourselves immensely and look forward to spending more time on the Amalfi Coast on our next visit to Rome.

Great tour driver/guide, David was fun, knowledgeable and kept us all busy on the ride back and forth from Rome, as well as during the amazing ride down the beautiful A,alf Coast.

The tour of Pompeii was inspiring, and the tour guide for that was an expert in the history of the place and was passionate and committed to make the experience memorable and significant.
