After a pickup from your central Rome hotel, inside the Aurelian Walls, relax on the journey by minivan to Pompeii. Enjoy a short stop for breakfast on the freeway, and then continue to the main archaeological site. On arrival, you’ll learn about the 79AD eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, which took the city by surprise.
Hear how the Pompeii lay buried, yet preserved, for centuries in volcanic lava and ash, as you explore with an official site guide. Sights include the Macellum food market, the thermal baths, dining areas, and the homes of the city’s wealthiest citizens.
Leave Pompeii for the Amalfi Coast, where you’ll arrive in time for lunch (own expense). Make the most of free time in Positano to eat, shop, and soak up the sights. Then, journey along the spectacular coastline to Amalfi, a town famous for its production of ceramics. Finish with a tasting of the local tipple — limoncello — and relax on your journey back to Rome. Your day ends with a hotel drop-off.
Please note: A minimum of two people per booking is required.
