Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

What You Can Expect

Amalfi Coast and Pompeii Day Trip from Sorrento

Explore ancient Pompeii and see the Amalfi Coast on a day trip from Sorrento

Meet your driver at your Sorrento hotel or in the center of town and hop aboard your coach, heading east toward the UNESCO-listed Amalfi Coast.    

Wind along the stunning coastal landscape, with sweeping views of the Mediterranean. Stop first in Positano, where you'll learn the history behind the pastel-colored town from your driver before taking off for an hour of free time.

Continue afterward to Amalfi, with three hours to stroll the charming streets, savor some southern Italian fare for lunch (own expense) or visit the 9th-century cathedral (own expense) at your leisure.

Reunite with your driver and journey to the UNESCO-listed ruins of Pompeii. Buried under the pumice and ash of Mt Vesuvius’ 79 AD eruption, the once-thriving city remained preserved under the rubble. Today, it offers a fascinating look into ancient Roman life.

Once inside (own expense), enjoy a walking tour of the archeological site with an expert guide. See the Thermal Baths, the Forum and the mosaics and frescoes left behind by Pompeii’s elite as you hear the history of the 2,000-year-old site.

After a full day of sightseeing, your tour will conclude at your original departure point.

This tour was very good although we didn't stop at Positano as there was nowhere to park up. Amalfi was beautiful if very small and 2 hours here was more than enough whilst Pompeii on the other hand took our breath away. An absolute must and the guide was brilliant.

Wow, what a fantastic tour of the 2 biggest wonders in Italy. Our guide Francesco is extremely personable with very strong knowledge of the Amalfi Coast and generally of Pompeii. Francesco handed us off to an expert Pompeii guide that gave me a greater appreciation of the rich history and common day to day routine that I could never get from a National Geographic documentary. Positano was beautiful and Francesco's passion for his work made the trip fun! It's not cheap, but you certainly get your money's worth and more.

This was our first trip. We were picked up at hotel in a small mini bus only four of us. Which was great.
The drive along the coast road gave us some amazing and beautiful sights. However was a bit scary as it very close to the edge.
Pompeii was amazing. Good shoes are a must as the whole area is cobles and rocks. We only done 4 hours that was enough as it was so hot .
Would certainly recommend it

This full day event is well worth it, you will see many sites and towns that you could not see on your own using public buses. Plus you get a guided tour though the ruins of Pompeii, this is a must cause you would not want to just wonder around Pompeii without a guide.

Great way to see Amalfi coast and spend time in Amalfi. Our guide at Pompeii was terrific. We learnt so much from her. Really worthwhile doing

Great tour- the guides were knowledgable and approachable. We had different guides in Pompei vs the rest of the tour. The one we had for Pompei was especially great. I was a little disappointed that we only saw about 3 bodies, but other than that it was fascinating to see how people lived then.
