No trip to Italy is complete without a visit to Pompeii. This luxury Mercedes van tour from Rome shows you a city immortalized by a volcanic eruption, followed by a leisurely lunch by the sea and free time on the stunning Amalfi Coast.
Explore Pompeii in Italy’s beautiful Campania region on this full-day tour from Rome! Pompeii’s UNESCO-listed archeological site is a can’t-miss, with its awe-inspiring monuments and fossils that for centuries had remained hidden under Mount Vesuvius’ volcanic ash. You’ll see all the highlights on an in-depth tour with a local English-speaking guide. We’ll then head to the coast to discover one of the Amalfi Coast’s prettiest towns! You’ll get to customize the tour to pick either Sorrento, Amalfi, or Positano.
Your driver will pick you up from your Rome accommodation. We will then travel south towards Pompeii, the once prosperous Roman city that met its fate in October 79AD, when Mt. Vesuvius erupted and the entire surrounding area and population were engulfed with burning pyroclastic flow and covered in ash.
You will see moments of terror frozen in time and ruins unchanged from almost two millennia ago. Your expert archeologist guide walks you down the long and ancient streets, where perfectly conserved ancient bakeries, shops, stalls, private and communal residences, public baths and brothels remain. See plaster casts of the unfortunate Pompeiians who were immortalized on that tragic day. Upon conclusion of the guided tour in Pompeii, you’ll enjoy a short rest while your driver takes you in comfort to your next destination.
The only challenging part of this day trip will be choosing one of the three coastal destinations after Pompeii. But not to worry, you can contact us to change this option up to two days before your tour.
Sorrento is an exceptionally beautiful town known as the “Gateway to the Amalfi Coast,” positioned high above the water. In Sorrento, you’ll enjoy once-in-a-lifetime views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and picture-perfect towns nestled into steep white limestone cliffs. Along the way, your driver will recommend a stop for lunch at one of the wonderful local pizzerias in the birthplace of true Italian pizza.
Amalfi, from which the entire Coast takes its name, is a bustling waterfront town whose stunning seaside promenade is dotted with artisan shops and botteghe — the ideal spot for sampling Limoncello. This world-renowned specialty liquor is made by local artisans from organic lemons that can only be harvested in this region.
Positano is what many call the jewel of the Amalfi Coast. This postcard-perfect town with its spectacular coastline of colorful homes built into a dramatic cliff is as stunning in person as you’ve seen immortalized in photos. Positano is also home to countless botteghe where highly sought-after custom-made sandals and beachwear are hand-made by locals. Exploring Positano requires walking up and down many steps, as this town spreads vertically from the sea upwards.
After exploring the Amalfi Coast, your driver will escort you back to your accommodation in Rome.
