We had an awesome day with Claudio our driver. He collected us promptly and took care to find out what we expected to get from our trip and made sure that he exceeded these expectations. He called ahead to book a trusted private tour guide who was waiting for us on our arrival in Pompeii - he was fantastic! And then we drove on to Sorrento, stopping at various places on the Amalfie Coast to take photographs and then we had a late lunch in Il Positano, before returning to Rome. Travelling with two young daughters, it was a long day trip, but memorable - and we all thought it was our best day of our week-long holiday to Rome.

As you leave Rome driving South along the Highway of the Sun, you will cross the regions of Lazio and Campania before you reach Pompeii. 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. The pathways are endless and the buildings fascinating. Some of the recovered houses still contain the original marble decoration, well preserved frescoes and splendid mosaics making this a unique archaeological site.
