Roman ruins in Pompeii by skip-the-line. Drive and stop along Amalfi Coast
THIS TOUR CAN BE CUSTOMIZED ON YOUR EXIGENCES
The winding road along the Amalfi coast will charm you with the sight on mountains and sea, little villages, lemon groves and colorful ceramic decorations. The first part of the day is dedicated to enjoying the beauty of this landscape (Unesco World Heritage). The driver will stop in the most important villages to let you stroll around, or along the road to take pictures and drink a fresh lemmon juice.
Last stop will be in Pompeii: here you will meet me to guide you through the ruins. Volcanic ashes destroyed but also preserved a whole ancient Roman town. Through my story telling you will be able to see and feel how people lived, ate, made business and entertained in Pompeii - I will make you discover the real way of living in the 1st century AD. An amazing and unforgettable experience, back in history!

First stop in the major town, Amalfi: time to stroll through little lanes, have a cappuccino or a limoncello liqueur sitting on the main square, or visit the Cathedral.
Next stop will be the gem of this coast: Positano with its rounded ceilings, terraces, flowers, painters. Time enough for lunch on a terrace or to shop at the tailors' of the "Positano fashion".
