Full description
Your full-day excursion begins in Rome, where you’ll meet the members of your small group (maximum of 15) and tour coordinator. Board the comfortable air-conditioned bus and relax as your expert driver whisks you south to Pompeii.

When you arrive in Pompeii you’ll be met by an expert local tour guide, hand-picked for their knowledge, enthusiasm, and story-telling skills.

With your pre-reserved ticket, you’ll enter Pompeii without delay and make a beeline for the most important sites. Visit the Roman Forum and the Temple of Venus, and see the world-famous death casts.

A benefit of having a local tour guide (an archaeologist with first-hand experience of the excavations) is that you will also discover some spots that many other visitors don’t see, such as private family homes, ancient fast food restaurants, and even a brothel.

During your 2.5-hour tour you’ll see the top attractions of Pompeii and learn what daily life was like in this ancient port town. Come to understand how terrifying and confusing it was when Mount Vesuvius erupted and froze the city and its residents in time in 79 A.D.

After your Pompeii tour you’ll head off on a scenic drive along the Amalfi Coast. As you navigate the twists and turns of one of Italy’s most beautiful drives, you’ll hear about local history and culture.

Stop in Positano, a pastel-colored resort town perched on the cliffs that has inspired legendary writers such as Shelley, Goethe, and Steinbeck. After an introduction from your guide, with some tips on where to eat lunch and shop, you’ll have free time to do as you please.

Linger over a seafood feast at a beachside restaurant or grab a panino to go and explore the winding streets and artisan shops.
