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.

The trip overall was good. The bus could have been better and for the price I wish it included snacks as we did spend quite a bit of time on the bus. I enjoyed the Pompeii tour and the drive to the Amalfi coast. We didn’t get to go to Postiano but stopped in Sorrento instead which was a lovely town. Our tour guide was cool but she did talk a LOT especially on the bus when I would have rather had time to just enjoy the views in silence & not listen to her stories or her pretend Italian accent. I also wish we had more than 2 hours in Sorrento as that part of the tour felt rushed

The Amalfi Coast is a MUST!. The view is astonishing, and the food options are excellent. Even though the guide suggested we should not go to the left section because we could get lost and would suggest trying it so you can enjoy the extra nice view (just don’t get lost). Keep in mind that you will be spending around 2 hours at the beach, so manage your time wisely.

I had the best experience, and I very much enjoyed the tour!! Chisra our guide was the best!!! She was very professional, she stayed with us the whole time, and throughout our day, she gave us so much information about the places that we were visiting or just going around. We had an incredible time, the places were beautiful, the driver was amazing, and everything went on as scheduled and planned. I will recommend this tour with this company “WALKS” to everyone.
