Enjoy a splendid day in the ancient city of Pompeii and the enchanting Amalfi coast on this small group tour! Drive along the panoramic coastal road and stop at panoramic viewpoints for photo opportunities! Enjoy plenty of free time in Positano, as well as in Amalfi! Discover the true charm of Italy!
After leaving Rome, we take the panoramic "SUN Highway" to arrive at the enchanting Amalfi Coast. After a coffee break along the way, we'll follow a very panoramic route to reach the most southern part of the Amalfi coast.
After a photo-stop to enjoy a superb view of the coastline, we will descend into the coastal road and make our way to Amalfi - a town that enjoyed a prestigious past. Made up of a labyrinth of narrow lanes and alleyways that climbs the surrounding hills, the town features typical Mediterranean architecture with houses piled one on top of the other.
We then continue our journey towards Positano, driving along the spectacular coastal road. We will make photo stops at selected viewpoints so that you can fully appreciate the beauty of the Amalfi Coast (including an astonishing view over Positano!).
Why not enjoy a fresh orange and lemon juice as you let your mind relax, pondering the splendid Mediterannean landscape? In front of you, hills littered with lemon and olive groves and villages punctuated by Arabian style majolica-tiled tower bells and pastel colored houses.
We will then make our way down to the exclusive Positano, a corner of peace and tranquility, away from the hordes of mass tourism. Large buses cannot get through here. After parking the car right where the pedestrian route starts, you will enjoy about 2 hours of free time to have lunch and to wander around this lovely town.
If you wish to follow our suggestion for lunch, we've selected for you a nice restaurant on the beach of Positano offering an excellent choice of food and wine at good value for money.
After a relaxing morning on the Amalfi Coast we will make our way to Pompeii. Enjoy a guided tour of Pompeii when the hordes of tourists have left and when the light is at its best to appreciate the beauty of this enchanting ancient roman town.
Our guide, one of the leading experts on Pompeii, will take you to see some of the best examples of public and private buildings while reviving the extraordinary history of Pompeii's illustrious citizens - recounting their habits, customs and beliefs.
Visit and discuss private homes, beautifully preserved frescoes, ancient wine bars, Roman thermal baths and the brothels. You will learn about Pompeii's sophisticated water system, how they kept their city and streets clean, their political systems and much more!
A fascinating journey back in time awaits you! When the tour is over, you will have a much deeper understanding of Pompeii, its citizens and the infamous day upon which Vesuvius erupted. After stopping for refreshments, sit back and relax as we make our way back to the eternal city and your hotel, while contemplating the memories of an incredible day on the Amalfi Coast.
