This tour has been designed for guests who wish to enjoy an overview of the Amalfi coast, visit the picturesque village of Positano and explore Pompeii, which is the most important excavation site in the world.
After leaving Rome and driving along the Highway of the Sun, the tour will cross the regions of Lazio and Campania. Along the way, you will pass by the famous Abbey of Montecassino, known for its famous battle and complete destruction during World War II.
Ironically, one of the ancient world's worst disasters generated one of the most amazing archaeological sites ever. In Pompeii you will experience life as it was in the 1st century AD. In fact, with the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD the city was buried 20 feet below ashes and lava until excavations began in the 18th century. Once on site you will have 2 hours to tour on foot, gaining an insight into the lives of ancient Romans as you stroll past baths, heaters, temples, markets and forums.
You will then proceed along the Amalfi coast to Positano, where a picture postcard comes to life, a patchwork of flat and domed roofs and vine-covered stairways tumbling down to meet the gentle curve of beach. Enjoy time at leisure and explore this elegant spot with its designer boutiques, shops and seaside cafes.
On the way to Positano you will be driving close to Sorrento . You will have a chance to stop and take a picture of the beautiful view overlooking Sorrento .If you wish to visit Sorrento we suggest you choose the other itinerary that goes to the Amalfi coast and Sorrento or request a customizable itinerary.
Your driver will most likely make a suggestion for lunch at Costantino restaurant in Positano. Luigi, the owner, is not our uncle or cousin but a close friend and thousands of clients have enjoyed his cuisine throughout the years. You may choose to eat here for about 25/30 euro per person or dine at a restaurant of your choice.
