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.

It's a long ride both ways, so be prepared to ride for a while. There is a nice break around the halfway point. We were picked up on time with a group of about 12 travelers. Good balance between tour information and giving us time to see and think for ourselves. Paolo, the tour leader at Pompeii, was outstanding. Very knowledgeable and clearly passionate about the subject. He did an excellent job on a brutally hot day of showing us a lot in the time we had, while still giving us time in the shade to cool off.

The seacoast and Positano is beautiful; the tour vans stop on the way down once for snacks and restroom; and then once along the seacoast for tourists to take pictures. The guide was helpful and very nice, and knowledgable. We spent 2 hours in Positano and went there first. It is a long ride (3.5 hours) but it was worthwhile. The tour of Pompeii was very good, more than I expected. The main con is the vehicle used; the van is air conditioned but it is the size of the utility vans that families are having built out for short vacations. Our van was not crowded but many left seats empty next to themselves and when we got on the only seats left together were at the back of the van, and while those in front of us reclined we could not. While this is beyond the control of the company running the tour, the roads are very bumpy and the driver did not slow down so it was very uncomfortable in that sense as well.

This tour was wonderful! We went to Positano first, which was stunningly beautiful. We had two hours there and were able to have lunch and do some shopping. Then we visited Pompeii with a local guide who was fantastic--so knowledgeable about history. Chiara was our overall guide and was very friendly. She made this a great outing.
