Full description
Board the comfortable air-conditioned bus in Rome and relax as your expert driver whisks you south to Pompeii. Once there, you’ll be met by an expert local tour guide, hand-picked for their knowledge, enthusiasm, and story-telling skills. 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 tour, you’ll also see the most important sights 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. Visit the Roman Forum and the Temple of Venus, and see the tragic death casts. 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.

This is a nice daytrip from Rome. It gives you a taste of the coast and Pompeii. While it can feel that time spent in both places are short with so much to see and do as a first time tourist, one must remember that it is a trip from Rome and back in a comfortable coach bus with guides and drivers looking out for you and your safety. The meeting place was well located steps away from the metro line near a café where you can get a coffee and cake to start and end the day.

It definitely was a long day but well worth it! Loved being in a small group of 10 people. Pompeii was an amazing place to visit. Positano is beautiful. You could definitely spend a whole day at each place so this was only a little taste. Cosimo was our guide all day- he was amazing! Full of so much knowledge. Dominico was our driver and thank God he was because maneuvering a 15 person bus on the tiny roads of Positano requires some skills. Franchesca was our guide at Pompeii and she was fabulous as well!

The two guides were very friendly, the visit to Pompei very interesting and the magnificent route between Pompei and Positano. As the roads are very narrow, there is a change of vehicle before entering Positano (small bus and / or taxi depending on the number of people in the group). Once in Positano, we are given a small map of the city center with recommended restaurants for the lunch break. Too bad we only spend 2 hours there because it takes around 1 to 1:30 for lunch (the restaurants are very good but the service is not fast) and 20-30 minutes to return to the meeting point at the end of the excursion. We therefore had to take an express tour of the small town center before walking back to the meeting point. Fortunately, we had a view of the houses hanging on the cliff from the terrace of our restaurant. To enjoy this stopover quietly, it would take 3 hours on site.
