What You Can Expect

Semi Private Pompeii, Positano & Amalfi Coast Tour with Lunch Included

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 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.

This tour was AMAZING! One of the best tours I've booked with Viator. Some reviews I read complained about the driver's English being hard to understand, but I did not have any trouble at all understanding him. He does have a thick Italian accent, but you're in Italy so everyone has an accent. It was a long drive about 2.5 hours in the car, but we did make time for bathroom/ coffee breaks. The scenic overlooks were amazing. The first stop for us was the Amalfi Coast, where we had about 5 mins to stop and take photos. Our driver, Rocco, was kind enough to offer to take photos of us. Next, we went to Positano where we had 90 mins of free time to shop/ relax/ take photos. Then we had an amazing lunch at a family owned restaurant where everything was made fresh. The restaurant had amazing views of the coast, and it was included in the cost. Finally, we had a guided tour of Pompeii. My recommendations are to bring comfy shoes, lots of water, and sunscreen. I had a great time on this trip, and even though the ride was long we got to see so many beautiful sights along the way. I would also like to thank Rocco for pointing/ explaining what things were to us along the way. He was telling us the history of Rome/ the other places we visited.

I only wish that we had more time in Positano and the beautiful Amalfi coast. What a beauty this was. The restaurant that we had lunch was phenomenal too. The staff were so gracious on this family run farm overlooking the beautiful coast. The pasta dish and salad were some of the best food I have ever had. My only suggestion would be to make the Positano visit a bit longer than the 1.5 hours that we were given. Our tour driver was so warm and friendly. He made everyone of us feel special. Thank you so much!

We had a blast on this tour! Everything went as planned, and yes it was a long day, but we expected it would be long. Our driver was great he was knowledgeable and funny. The drive was gorgeous, and while we only had a short time in Positano it was really fun exploring the city during our allotted time. Lunch was delicious and the day was capped off with Pompeii. Stopping here last was terrific, it was later in the day and that made the 2 hour tour less hot. The guide in Pompeii was great, very passionate about the history. We would definitely recommend this tour.

I visited Italy in the month of June and took this trip. THIS WAS SIMPLY AMAZING! Positano was great! Mr.Khan, who drove us to these places was an amazing guy, a very good and a honest human being who was true and sincere to his duty. He took very good care of us. He was so honest that he even declined the big tip one of my fellow traveller offered him at the end of the tour. By- Vijay

What a great tour! Diver was very friendly and informative providing lots of history during the drive. Amalfi Coast was breath takenly beautiful. Positano was very busy with lots of shops. Beach was pebbles and extremely busy. Our tour guide in Pompeii was fantastic. Having a tour guide is an absolute must! He stopped and explained everything we were seeing. There was so many small details that you would miss without the expertise of the guide. Well done!!!!

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Rome. While a long day picked up at 7am and dropped off at 7:30pm, it was full of amazing sights and experiences. Our driver, Khan, made it his goal to provide a comfortable, safe, informative, and friendly ride. He also scheduled the stops to avoid as much as possible large tour bus overlaps. On the Amalfi coast we stopped in Positano - lovely cliff-side town with all sorts of shops - but VERY crowded! On the way to Pompeii, we stopped for a light meal at a quaint cliff-side restaurant and were served capris salad, bread, and pasta. Pompeii was amazing - for this type of tour the time spent there was adequate - although my husband and myself would like to go back and do a self guided tour next time now that we know the highlights.

We had such an incredible day, one that we will never forget. Our driver and guide, Mido, took great care of us all day long. He made sure we knew everything about the places we were driving through. The lunch was top notch, we bought their home made olive oil, wine, and limoncello, and the view was epic. I could go on and on, but I will keep repeating the words, fantastic, excellent, one of a kind, and over the top, etc. If you are travelling to Rome, book this tour.

What an amazing day trip!!! I recommend to anyone thinking about taking this trip. I was hesitant to book it since it was such a long day and alot of time in the car BUT i am so glad we went. Our tour guide Mido was the best! He went above and beyond. He made sure we got great pictures, made sure we were comfortable, told us alot of history, and just made the day such a wonderful experience. The drive to the coast was beyond breathtaking.. I was a little nervous at first since reading the reviews about people getting carsick but Mido drove like such a professional I was totally fine. Our van had 3 other people who were so nice- we all had such a nice time together. The tour of pompeii was so amazing too such a great experience. I really cant say enough good things about this tour. FIVE STARS for sure!!!

Our driver and guide Khan picked us up in a Mercedes Benz Vito. Sat up front for the view. It was a 3 hour drive to Positano on the Amalfi coast with a bathroom, coffee break halfway. You pass thru the cities of Napoli and Sorrento on the way and through some quite long tunnels before arriving at the Amalfi coast. The vistas on the road to Positano are beautiful with the Mediterranean on the right. The drive is not for the faint of heart. Positano is stunning in beauty and charm with delightful shops. Many selling there famous pottery and lemoncello. After leaving Positano it was about a 45 to 50 minute ride to our lunch stop. The restaurant was in a lovely gardens outdoors with the biggest bird of paradise I've ever seen. It was a delicious meal of a bufalo mozzarella and tomato salad, chewy Italian bread and al dente pasta with zucchini or tomatoes. Then on to Pompei and all its fascinating history from the plaster casts to the red light district. Our guide Gaetano is a 3rd generation Pompei guide who loved his job which you could tell by his passion.
