Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Day Tour

Discover Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast

Imagine what life was like back in Roman times at Pompeii. What could be considered the ultimate “lost and found,” archaeologists are still digging up dirt on the lost city that was once covered in ash. Your 15-hour, full day tour from Rome includes a two-hour private tour with English-speaking guide.

From here, you’ll take in one of the world’s most miraculous (and spine-tingling) drives up the Amalfi Coast. Stop at the church of Santa Maria Assunta before enjoying a walking tour and free time in Positano. Then it’s on to Amalfi where you’ll want to stop for lunch and maybe a little Limoncello to toast the good life.

This tour includes pick up and drop off at your centrally located hotel and stops for photo opportunities – of which there are plenty. What you see in pictures simply cannot compare.

With ruins, romantic towns and resplendent views, this tour is La Dolce Vita at its finest.
