Southern Italy: Private Pompeii, Amalfi & Positano Day Trip

2. Southern Italy: Private Pompeii, Amalfi & Positano Day Trip

Pompeii is a town located in the plains at the eastern slope of Vesuvius, to the right of the lower reaches of the river Sarno. One of the largest archaeological areas in the world and Unesco World Heritage Site, it is a popular tourist destination, also thanks to the presence of the Shrine of Our Lady of the Rosary. At the archaeological site, you'll find that the ancient Roman city buried by the sudden eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD has been brought back to light. The rain of ash and lava and the resulting thick layer of dust have crystallized, preserving Pompeii for centuries. Brought to the surface, Pompeii is the most visited archaeological site in the world. Afterwards, you'll visit Amalfi, an internationally renowned tourist destination and famous for its incomparable beauty and mild climate. The town on the southern coast of the Sorrento Peninsula, known as the Amalfi Coast, is enclosed by the foothills of the mountains of Lattari. White houses and narrow streets, many of them with steps, characterize the village, a typical example of Mediterranean architecture. It is an archiepiscopal seat. The cathedral, dedicated to St. Andrew, is the most impressive building in Amalfi: a rare beauty, built in the 9th-century and refurbished in 1203 after the Arab-Norman style, and restored several times after, has solemn steps to the side of which rises the bell tower (12th to 13th-century), which preserves intact the polychromy, typical of the Romanesque architecture of the area. The valley, for its wildlife and environmental characteristics, is now a nature-oriented reserve, declared a World Heritage Site, and will enchant on pleasant walks. At the center of the Amalfi Coast, Positano is located on the slopes of the mountains Comune and Sant'Angelo a Tre Pizzi. Thanks to the mild climate and the beauty of the landscape, Positano has been a resort since the Roman Empire, as attested by the discovery of a villa and more recent discoveries, dating back to 2004. From the village, the many typical 'scalinate' steps come down to the beaches, the Spiaggia Grande and the Fornillo, both within walking distance; others are La Porta, Arienzo and San Pietro Laurito, all reachable mainly by the sea. The town, with typical spherical shell houses, is a unique urban and architectural complex, with long steps, narrow alleys and watchtowers along the coastal ridge.

What people are saying about Pompei

We got picked up at hour hotel right on time. The vehicle was very comfortable. They had to pick up two other people in their hotel so it was just the four of us. This is the reason I chose this particular tour as it was max six people and also offered pick up and drop off. It cost a lot more than the other tour operators but it is easier to just be picked up and dropped off. We stopped by at a service station to get coffee and breakfast and then drove all the way down to Pompeii and the guide Chiara was giving us some information along the way. After Pompeii we headed down to the Amalfi coast. There was traffic so it kind of took longer to get to Positano when we got there a quick walk down to the beach had lunch had some gelato and then off to the boat to go to Amalfi town. Did some souvenir shopping then back to the van. It was all fast but we had fun. The guide looked after us very very well. I was hesitant to book this tour as it wasn’t cheap but it was worth it. Glad we did it.

Absolutely amazing. First they were on time at our hotel. We were the only ones on the tour so it felt super special and luxurious. Both our guide Dina and the driver Roberto were super friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable. Pompeii was awesome, great informative tour and great food. We then continued to Amalfi coast which was gorgeous. Second stop at Positano, such a cute town. We opted to walk around and eat on the way instead of sitting at a restaurant the whole time, best decision I think because we got to see more. We stayed there for about two hours and then took the boat to Amalfi. Amalfi is tiny but very cute. Definitely get the limoncello sorbet, delicious. We were only at Amalfi for 30min and headed to our bus which was waiting for us at Amalfi. A few hours later got back to the hotel happily exhausted. Dina also gave us really good recommendations for food and the best gelato in Rome. All were delicious. Would definitely recommend this tour, worth every penny.

Wonderful trip, highly recommended! Everything was on time and smoothly organised. Pompeii is definitely a must see and in Positan we had an opportunity enjoy some stunning views! Safe drive through all serpantines!
