Overview

If you only have one day to see the wonders of the Amalfi Coast, our Pompeii Tour from Rome with Amalfi Cost Drive is the perfect all-in-one day trip for you. It’s a beautiful combination of history, archeology, stunning views, world-class food, and even a little shopping.

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Separate driver ensures your guides full attention throughout the day
  • Excellent value for money
  • Instant Confirmation

We pick you up in central Rome in an air-conditioned mini-bus, the most comfortable way to navigate the jaw-dropping cliff drive that awaits us. When we arrive in Pompeii, we’ll skip the lines and be met by one of our expert, English-speaking guides who have dedicated their lives to studying Pompeii. As they walk you through the shops, temples, public baths, and houses that made up the thriving city, they’ll recount the fascinating stories of life in the ancient city; and how it was decimated by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. The tour will also visit the famous plaster death casts of unfortunate people caught in the eruption and, if appropriate for the group, an ancient brothel.

After Pompeii, it’s back into the bus for one of the most unforgettable drives of your life down the hairpin turns and panoramic vistas of the Amalfi coast. It won’t take long for you to see why this is considered Italy’s most scenic drive (although certainly not the easiest to navigate - you’ll be glad you have a driver!).

Along the way your guide will enrich the journey with some background on the area’s history and culture, teaching you what life is like at the foot of the world’s most dangerous volcano. After your guide gives you background on the history and culture of the area, you’ll arrive in the lovely Positano.

Following in the footsteps of literary greats like Shelley, Goethe and Steinbeck, you’ll be free to explore this little town on foot, sampling its incredible seafood, browsing the fashionable boutiques, or ordering bespoke, handmade sandals.

Trying to see the sights of the Amalfi Coast on your own is a notorious hassle with lines, traffic, and all those hair-pin turns. This tour takes out the stress and distills it into an unforgettable day trip of culture, history, and archaeology. In a group or 16 people or fewer, you will have intimate access to your expert tour guide who will not only ensure that you get where you want to go, but also make the coast come alive with the stories of its past.

What a nice trip. The tour was long, but worth the view. I wish we had more time in Sorrento. Pompeii the guide was amazing and knew so much information in regard to the city. Really enjoyed it. Sorrento is amazing. Chiara was very nice and had lots of information to share. Unfortunately, it is a little bit of a drive, but worth it.

Georgia is amazing! I was so impressed with her overall knowledge and passion to guide people through her home country. I hope to do more tours with her and Patrick (our driver). Caroline, Papa, Hungary

Pompeii is just amazing. I had no idea it was so big. Our guides Georgia and Francisco were wonderful. I would highly recommend this trip. We went toSorento instead of Positano since it was the “low” season. Sorento is a charming town . We had a great lunch.

Antonella Was a warm, ebullient guide; Serena also was excellent in Pompeii. Lovely trip south to Sorrento (not Positano) and Pompeii. Well worth the trip. Had a great lunch in Sorrento and a nice walk around the town. Would have liked another hour there but the schedule only allowed 2 hours including lunch. Tour of Pompeii was fun and interesting. Because late November is off season, it was not crowded at all—a real bonus.
