Day trip to the ancient city of Pompei and the Amalfi coast (from Rome)
A Private day trip to Itlay's favorite coastal towns along the Amalfi Coast taking in the local culture and its breathtaking views.
First up on our way south, you will explore the ancient ruins of Pompeii, the city "frozen in time". One of the most significant archaeological sites buried by an eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 A. D. The volcanic ash from this explosion preserved the city's buildings, streets and art, making it the most realistic portrayal of life over 2, 000 years ago. Continuing along, is the magnificent coastline from Sorrento to Amalfi, considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in itself enough of a reason to venture on this route. You will admire the Mediterranean's sparkling blue waters and the charming coastal towns tucked into the cliff, narrow streets filled with local shops and boutiques. Luncheon with real Napoletan pizza plus a Limoncello tasting.
Pick up at your hotel by private chauffeur with a fully equipped Mercedes van (8 seater).
Approximately 3 hours drive to reach our first stop, the ancient city of Pompei. A walking tour of approximately 2 hours to view this amazing site.
Next is a smaller drive of approximately 45 min to reach the town of Positano for our lunch stop at a local pizza restaurant (for a taste of real pizza!).
After lunch we will continue our drive through the most amazing costal panoramic route to go for a taste of real Limoncello (world famous lemon liquor) and some shopping according to your wishes. From here we'll make our way back to Rome and you will be dropped off at your hotel.
