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.

Wow, this tour was amazing. A full day, but well worth it! Our guide was so informative and accommodating. We had a wonderful time with the other 5 members of our tour group. The van was very comfortable and the sights were incredibly beautiful. My granddaughter's favorite tour during our stay.

Great tour, picked us up from hotel on time, friendly tour guide, as advised we stopped from breakfast and went to the coast and Pompeii. Great day out as you see the coast and embark on a road trip you would probably not normally do if staying in Rome as its a long journey!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Just the right size group, friendly and helpful guid/driver, and just the right amount of time to see the necessities!

A wonderful experience from the beginning with our pick up at the hotel to the drop off.
Our guide was very good and accommodated our every need. There were 8 in our group. The drive to Amalfi was long and a beautiful sight to see. Caution if you get motion sickness as the Amalfi Coast drive will have an affect. The views are breath taking and the narrow roads give you an awesome view.
Pompeii -wow-we had a wonderful guide that lives and breaths historical evidence about the ruins and how it was once a living and breathing city. As cautioned-bring water-and be respectful to the ruins. The first 100 yards are uphill and then flat from there. Certainly worth the hike.

The Amalfi coast is beautiful. The tour of Pompeii was interesting - the docent was excellent.
It makes for a long day but well worth the drive.

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip because of the scenery along the Amalfi and Sorrento coasts and because our guide was first-rate. I would recommend this trip to anyone traveling to Rome.
