Visit the beautiful town of Positano on the Amalfi Coast on a full-day tour from Naples that also includes an excursion to the ruins of Pompeii and a wine tasting and lunch at a local vineyard.
What to Expect
This full day excursion from the ports of Naples, Amalfi and Salerno takes you to the quaint resort of Positano. The tour includes an English-speaking driver and luxury transport and is ideal for those who wish to combine one of the highlights of the Amalfi Coast with the archaeological site of Pompeii and a chance to taste some superb Italian wines.
You will be met by your driver and will make your way along the glittering coast to the picturesque coastal village of Positano, perched upon cliffs and spilling down to the coast.
John Steinbeck once described it as “a dream place that isn’t quite real.” Spend the morning exploring its narrow streets and romantic houses, before continuing to a local vineyard at the foot of Mount Vesuvius.
Enjoy sublime views of the Bay of Naples and take a guided tour of the vineyard, along with a light lunch in a beautiful terraced garden. During lunch you can taste 6 different wines of Lacryma Christi, including white, red and rosè wines, and finish with a distilled grappa of apricot.
Continue to the archaeological site of Pompeii. The most stunning archaeological site on the Italian Peninsula, it is one of the most visited sites in the world. The Greco Roman city was frozen in time after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD. Now an open-air museum, you can walk through the former city streets, which were buried under ash until their discovery in the 1700s.
We recommend you hire a private guide to make the most of your time at Pompeii. If you prefer, can visit the city of Herculaneum, which was also buried during the same volcanic eruption.
Your tour complete, you will be returned to Naples, Amalfi or Salerno for your port drop-off.
