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 seven/eight people per minivan, which ensures a personalized experience.
During the approximate 3-hour journey, your driver-guide will tell you about what to expect from the day.
On your day trip to Pompeii enjoy 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 next destination is an authentic family-run oil mill that produces its own olive oil and where you can taste it in the coastal garden with a wonderful view of the Gulf of Naples! You will also enjoy a light lunch consisting of pasta with fresh tomatoes sauce or other home-grown seasonal vegetables, Caprese Salad (Mozzarella cheese and locally-produced tomatoes) water and, finally, limoncello (other drinks are not included).
In the afternoon we’ll spend some time exploring Positano, where you can enjoy a walk around the delightful village with its white and pastel-colored houses littering the hillside. You can visit the beautiful beaches, where you can relax or have a swim, stroll around the ancient fishing port and see the splendid majolica dome of the church of Santa Maria Assunta.
Your day trip then ends with the drive back to Rome.
