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 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.

We had a comfortable bus, well-informed tour guide, and the tour allowed us to view the countrysice, have a brief, but nice stop in Amalfi, an okay lunch and walking tour of Positano, and finally, a great tour guide for Pompeii. Well worth the price.

The tour was fantastic! Our driver was on time and we really enjoyed the small group with the pick up and drop off right at the place we were staying. The one thing that would have been nice would be to have a bit more time in Positano. By the time we finished lunch there was not a lot of time to look around before it was time to be off to Pompeii. Other than that, the tour was great!

Outstanding tour. It's a very long day but well worth it.

Having the smaller semi private tour van was great because you got to see more of Amalfi than you would on a big tour bus, and the smaller group at Pompeii allowed you to experience so much more than you would with a big group.

The drive along the Amalfi coast was beautiful, but also very busy given the time of year. Expect a lot of hairpin turns, traffic jams and sudden view points that will take your breath away... We even got stuck in a traffic jam because some guy was having a problem loading his donkey into the back of his truck... It's all just part of the experience so sit back and take it all in.

At Pompeii we were handed off to a local guide, whose father and grandfather were also Pompeii guides... I wish I could remember the guides name, but his knowledge and passion for Pompeii came out in force, and really turned what would have been an interesting experience into am amazing experience. There is so much detail in Pompeii and so many examples of urban planning that we still use today that you would miss if you were doing a self guided tour. If you do this tour and get this guide, you will know it right away.

Loved this tour. The drive is long and the Amalfi coast is very popular for visitors, so be ready. Pompeii was awesome. very knowledgeable tour guide, 3rd generation of his Grandfather, then father, then himself being a guide. He brought passion and knowledge together for an very enjoyable experience.

What an amazing tour! My wife and I booked this day tour from Rome during our stay as we have always dreamed of seeing the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii. Our guide/driver, Roberto, was absolutely wonderful. He was incredibly knowledgable and thoughtful. The beauty of the Amalfi Coast is simply unbelievable. During our stop in Positano, we had one of the best meals of our life at a restaurant Roberto recommended. We also loved our tour in Pompeii. Just don't forget your bug spray and water bottles during summer months as it was incredibly hot. We would definitely recommend this tour to others. You will not regret it.
