Private Tour: Pompeii and Positano Day Trip from Rome

    What to Expect
    After pickup at your Rome hotel by your professional driver, hop into your private minivan to start your day trip, which takes you south of the city into the Southern Italy region of Campania. During the approximate 3-hour drive to your first stop, catch a glimpse of the Abbey of Montecassino, a hilltop monastery.

    When you arrive in Pompeii, pay your own entrance fee before heading inside, where you have about two hours to take in the archaeological ruins of this World Heritage site. Learn about the eruption of Mt Vesuvius in 79 AD that covered the ancient Roman city in ash and molten pumice, freezing the village in time. Depending on the option selected when booking, you’ll either explore the well-preserved streets on your own or take a tour with a knowledgeable guide who tells you about the Forum, thermal baths and other village features that were part of daily life for Pompeii residents.

    Then continue your day trip along the winding Amalfi Coast to your final stop, Positano. Here, you have more free time to admire the pastel-colored houses that perch on the cliffs, shop in high-end boutiques, enjoy a drink or meal at a local eatery or take a walk on the beach. When your time is up, hop back in your minivan for the return drive to Rome for hotel drop-off.

    Please note: If you prefer, the visit to Positano can be replaced with a visit to Sorrento. Coordinate before you travel with the local supplier; contact details are shown on your booking voucher.
