Numbers are limited to seven on this small-group tour, ensuring you’ll enjoy personalized attention from your guide.

Highlights

  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Small-group tour by minibus
  • Soak up the atmosphere on a walking tour
Leave your Rome hotel in the early morning, and head to the Campania region in the south of Italy. Your journey lasts around three hours, but your minivan is comfortable and air conditioned, and your driver-guide will explain the day’s itinerary on the way.

First stop is the picture-perfect town of Amalfi, on the luscious Amalfi Coast. Once a major naval power, the town is now known for its stunning coastal scenery; it clings to a jagged rock face looking down over the turquoise Tyrrhenian Sea. Enjoy free time here to stretch your legs on a walk around, admiring the town’s typically Mediterranean architecture, where houses seem to be built on top of each other as they straddle the hillside! Rest in one of the cafés and sample a shot of limoncello (own expense), or perhaps check out the Cloister of Paradise (Chiostro del Paradiso) -- an intriguing Arabian-style hamlet.

Continue by minivan to the neighboring village of Positano, passing along a stunning coastal road with stops peppered in for photo stops. Enjoy free time for lunch in the village (own expense), and to explore. Gaze in admiration at the white- and pastel-colored houses that smatter the hillside, and perhaps take a stroll along its perfectly groomed beaches.

Meet your driver-guide at the pre-arranged time, and then head inland toward the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pompeii -- the world-famous ancient village that lay buried under layers of volcanic ash for centuries. Explore the area with your guide on a 2-hour walking tour, documenting the site’s history from AD 79 when Mount Vesuvius erupted, to the early 18th century when it was ‘discovered.’ Hear history come to life with tales of ancient Romans who once lived here.

From Pompeii, return north to Rome by minivan. Your tour then finishes back at your hotel in the late evening.

      This is a ITALY MUST DO ! Please put it on your list. The Amalfi Coast is breath taking at every turn! Every turn is 15 or 20 feet! The beauty to behold is like trying to describe the Grand Canyon to someone who has never seen it. The words just are not there. A long day from Rome but worth every minute of it. Have always been interested in Pompei. But until you walk in the foot prints in the streets of ancient Pompei. Then and only then can you grasp the rich history of the city buried hundreds of years by volcanic ash.
      As an added bonus. Hope you get Anna as your tour guide for the day. You will very quickly connect with her gently spirit and of course her Italian accent! Her knowledge of the tour, and her love for what she does becomes quickly apparent. By the end of the day I an sure you will come to love her as did everybody in her small group did! She is the BEST!
