What You Can Expect

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Semi-Private Day Trip from Rome

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. Then arrive at your first stop, the town of Amalfi, a former naval power now famous for its cliffside perch on the coast of the Tyrrenhian Sea. You have free time here to explore independently. Perhaps visit landmarks like the Cloister of Paradise (Chiostro del Paradiso), relax over a coffee or limoncello at a café (own expense) or take a walk to admire the Mediterranean architecture.

Next, head to Positano, stopping along the way for photo ops from the coastal road. Once again, you have free time in the village to get lunch (own expense) and explore on your own, enjoying views of the sea and hillside homes. Then meet back up with your guide to continue your day trip to Pompeii for 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 day trip then ends with the drive back to Rome.

Picked up at the hotel promptly. Driver very helpful and knowledgeable. Made every effort to make the day enjoyable. Amalfi Coast was awesome but a long drive. Pompeii was unforgettable . Even though the trip took 10 hours it was one of the best tours I have taken for a long time.

1. Pompeii was incredible. The private guide we had was very informative, and thorough. Funny, also! While a lot of other tour reviews of Pompeii felt that the 2 hour tour wasn't enough, our guide brought us everywhere! YOU BETTER WEAR SNEAKERS.

2. The Amalfi coast was breathtaking! Our driver was very knowledgable and kept us motivated throughout the day. We stopped for pictures from time to time, and he helped plan the day. Did I mention that he was a terrific driver? The coast was winding...and I was never concerned about his skills. Our stop in Amalfi was only OK. We were there apparently when a cruise ship had an excursion as well. It was very touristy...not my taste. Especially when you compare it to the rest of Italy. My 17 year old daughter was bored to death during this part of the trip.

Overall, I loved the trip! Warning - it is a LONG day 13 hours, and I don't recommend it for anyone who is not able to walk all day.

Had a great trip to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast! Excellent, fun driver, and there was only 5 of us in total on the tour. Guide in Pompeii was extremely knowledgeable, and the sights at Pompeii were amazing. The stops in Positano and Amalfi were also great. Fair warning, there is definitely moderate walking at both Pompeii and getting down to Positano and then back up to the car park. People with mobility issues would have difficulty, I believe.

Hands down amazing. It was my first time to Italy and was told to do find a trip to Pompeii/Amalfi. I went on this tour the day after I arrived, like 8 hours into Italy. Khan was a good driver and tour guide. This semi-private tour was good. I had 4 other people with me and they were a nice group of people to share this moment. We stopped by alil café and Khan and the other group were ahead of schedule and we missed the crowd of tour buses and all. we got to Pompeii and had the best tour guide I believe since him and his daddy and his daddy were tour guides. After that we went off to Amalfi Coast, Khan stopped by a few places to take pictures and told alil tid-bits of history of the coast. Good food, good small shopping, and Limoncello was down right GUD!GOOD. I went during January so it was alil cold and raining but still amazing site. I would recommend to go during the summer to get the whole feels but Khan was saying it gets really hectic and crowed to where its unbearable just to go. So I lucked out. and like I said, the people with me made my first time in Italy a thing I will remember for life. Im going back again and ill be back on here again. mahalo!

One of the highlights of our trip. Our guide, Miro, was so friendly, patient and knowledgeable. We never felt rushed yet were always informed. Pompeii was more than I imagined. Our guide, Gaetano, was fantastic. He is so well informed and was eager to share his knowledge with us. One simply cannot beat the drive along the coast. I had seen it on a documentary on television and was very much looking forward to actually experiencing it for myself. I was not disappointed. A long, but great day.

This was an amazing tour. Pompeii is incredible and the Amalfi Coast, both Positano and the town of Amalfi, are breathtaking. The tour is worth the 13-14 hour day and I would definitely suggest the semi-private trip. It's a little expensive as opposed to being on a tour bus, but there's no way to appreciate and absorb the story of Pompeii and the scenery of the Amalfi Coast on a large tour bus. Khan was our driver and he did an amazing job of navigating the winding roads of the Amalfi Coast. However, anyone who is even remotely suspectible to car or motion sickness should bring Dramamine with them. It's about an hour drive from Pompeii to Amalfi, and an hour back from Amalfi, on very windy roads with tight turns and in our small group of 7 people, 2 of us were sick. Definitely worth it, but bring the Dramamine.
