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.

Pompeii guide was very easy to follow, and we were fortunate to not have so many crowds to deal with, however the vendor outside was a ripoff, 2 euro for a .50 euro postcard? Really?. Sorrento was awesome, the drive down Amalfi Coast, breath taking, thank you to our wonderful driver and tour guide!

Long day but good tour

Our guide Fededico was great very knowledgeable and friendly. A good way to see sorrento and pompei if you are short of time. We had to do sorrento and not the almafi coast as the road was closed, but sorrento was still very nice. You don't not get long in each spot but you have to expect that as the drive takes a long time from Rome. Overall it was a good way to see the sights

This is the ultimate day trip from Rome! The destinations were awesome and the guide was super helpful. The stays are just right otherwise you’d be in Pompeii for very long time ( which isn’t bad but it’s a huge place) wish we had more time in Pazitano but not the tours fault, you just have to stay there for a few nights. All in all recommended!
