What You Can Expect

Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Small-Group 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 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.

The tour was well organized. We got to see a really beautiful coastline. My favorite part was the town of Positono where we had lunch. It is a wonderful and relaxing town. Later we did a tour of the ancient town of Pompeii which was quite interesting.
I think the experience would not have been the same without our tour guide, Achille. He was well informed about the sites. He would point out the plan at each stop ahead of time and give us good tips on how to spend our time! The drive on the Amalfi coast is impressive. I felt safe while our guide was skillfully driving. I enjoyed a day out in the beautiful and historic Italy.

Our experience at Pompeii and Amalfi Coast started when our driver Khan arrived promptly at our hotel. He was a real professional. Even though the trip was long, Khan made it so much fun. He was very knowledgeable about the areas that we visited and we learned a lot from him. Because of Khan, we will recommend our family, friends and business associates to your company.

This was a very long day but an excellent one. We had two 10 year olds with us so stamina was a concern but they were able to sleep in the car on the way from Rome to the coast, between Positano and Pompeii, then all the way home so they were exhausted but handled it well and were awake and participating in the tours. The Pompeii tour guide was excellent and I wish we could have seen move - two hours is not enough - but everyone was on fumes at that point. Overall it was an exhausting excellent day that was well worth it.

Even though the Amalfi Coast drive is twisty and threatens car sickness we did fine and enjoyed Positano very much. Pompeii was a real highlight of our trip. And our driver was extremely skilled.

This is a ITALY MUST DO ! Please put it on your list. The Amalfi Coast is breath taking at every turn! Every turn is 15 or 20 feet! The beauty to behold is like trying to describe the Grand Canyon to someone who has never seen it. The words just are not there. A long day from Rome but worth every minute of it. Have always been interested in Pompei. But until you walk in the foot prints in the streets of ancient Pompei. Then and only then can you grasp the rich history of the city buried hundreds of years by volcanic ash.
As an added bonus. Hope you get Anna as your tour guide for the day. You will very quickly connect with her gently spirit and of course her Italian accent! Her knowledge of the tour, and her love for what she does becomes quickly apparent. By the end of the day I an sure you will come to love her as did everybody in her small group did! She is the BEST!

Kajn, our driver collected me from a private apartment on time. He was very friendly and gave excellent commentary throughout our day. Kajn drove us safety along the motorway and navigated Amalfi coast roads with ease. The day was long, however, the 7 of us thoroughly enjoyed every experience. I would highly recommend this trip to any visors to these attractions. Positino and Amalfi are very busy places and arriving there in comfort with someone who knows the area is definitely a plus!

Roberto was a great driver and guide. Amalfi and positano were beautiful, wish more time could be spent in each. Day was planned well, though, and kept on schedule.

What an amazing tour! Yes, it's a long day, but we saw so much! Khan was a great driver and gave so much good information about the places we were going through. Gaetano was a wonderful tour guide onsite in Pompeii, too! We felt very lucky to have two nice and knowledgable guides for the day. Even my 12 year old daughter enjoyed it. Definitely recommended!
