Know More about this tour

Meet yourknowledgeable English speaking driver at your centrally located Rome hotel, then hop inside your private, air-conditioned minivan and journey south to Italys Campania region. As you travel, take in the pretty scenery, and catch sight of the magnificent hilltop monastery, the Abbey of Montecassino.

After roughly three hours, pull up by the UNESCO World Heritage site of Pompeii. An ancient Roman city nestled at the foot of Mt Vesuvius, Pompeii was submerged under layers of volcanic ash and molten pumice in 79 AD when the volcano erupted. Pay your entrance fee (not included) and then head inside to explore independently. Or, if youve upgraded, join up with an expert guide to begin your tour.

After around two hours, return to your minivan and continue along the famous Amalfi Coast Road to Positano. Gaze in wonder at the white- and pastel-colored houses that slip down the mountainside. Then perhaps browse the designer boutiques, take a walk along the beach, or savor some delicious Italian cuisine at a seaside restaurant (own expense).

When the time comes, join back up with your driver and relax on the return journey to Rome, where your day trip concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.

  • The day tour to Pompeii and Positano was fantastic. Choosing the option of a private mini van we had a group of eight people was an excellent idea and it made our day so flexible. Our driver, Marco, was knowledgeable and very friendly. He made sure we were always comfortable and never once did he rush us through the day. I would repeat this tour again without hesitation.

  • good tour

  • Our tour guide was super friendly, professional and super informative. His van was clean and comfy which made us feel at home. However, beware of this excursion as you spend more time in the car than you do exploring. We made 2 small pit spots to enjoy the view and take some photos but this is not a tour where you can walk around and take your time. I wish I would have known this before booking as I would have liked to take a dip at the beach or walk around the shops.

  • Max was promot, and got us safely to Sorento and Pompeii. Max pointed out the sights along the way, and we enjoyed our conversation. Great lunch in Pompeii before our amazing tour in Pompeii with Barbara. Both Max and Barbara were accommodating with my mom's limited mobility, and simply wonderful!

  • This is beautiful, but a 3.5 hour drive each way takes up several hours out of the 11 hours for the tour. We were dropped off about a twenty minute walk from the main shopping and beach. Basically, by the time you get dinner, your time is up. We elected to bypass Pompei because of limited time. I would recommend a overnight stay.

    Our driver was Damian not sure if I spelled it correctly. He was very friendly with very good English.

  • We met our guide-Ida- who was very fantastic! Excellent English and very nice.She did a great job of working us through the crowd. Being a group of just 4, she got us into areas large tours cannot. Definitely go in the morning if going in the summer. This was worth every penny just to skip the lines

  • We loved this tour! Gianni picked us up at our hotel bright and early for the 2 ride to Sorrento instead of Positano. He was full of information and enthusiasm for Italy which made the ride a breeze. He was a joy! We walked the beautiful city of Sorrento and chose a sidewalk restaurant for lunch and to people watch. We then made the short trip to Pompeii and were met by our tour guide Barbara. Let me tell you, we all loved her! She was so informative, knowledgable and passionate. Our teenage boys commented on her sense of pride and professionalism in what she does. After 30 years of guiding visitors she is incredibly enthusiastic! We would definitely recommend this tour!

  • We booked this trip within 48 hours of arriving in Rome as we wanted to avoid the expected rain there. We had a bit of difficulty confirming our trip once there but the agency ensured to contact us and we were able to communicate our hotel pickup. We were off to a late start but our tour guide and driver Damiano made up some time and we were soon back on track. We were so glad we booked the trip as the Amalifi was sunny and warm compared to Rome that day! Damiano was patient, flexible and informative. Positano was gorgeous. And after traveling to Italy 10 times we finally went to Pompeii. Why did we wait so long? It was so wonderful. We are looking forward to going back to spend a whole day there. It was a 12 hour day from pick up to drop off but would do it again. I would not recommend to the infirm due to the extensive and precipitous walks or those with extremely young children due to the travel time.

  • We booked this at the last minute 48 hours prior as we wanted to get out of the hustle and bustle of ROme with our kids ages 12, 11, 7. Can't say enough positive things about this tour! While the ride was long, Marco, our driver from DriverInRome, promptly picked us up at our hotel and was extremely friendly. He made great conversation, was engaging, friendly and kept us safe! Positano was a definite highlight of our trip Absolutely loved it. The tour included lunch at an amazing restaurant, where we had the primo table, with open windows to amazing views from atop of a cliff in Positano. This in and of itself was worthwhile! After lunch, we rode to Pompeii, where we had an excellent, English speaking guide who showed us the highlights. We had debated on whether our kids would enjoy Pompeii ages 12, 11, 7 and they loved it and so did we. We are so glad we did this adventure and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to go to Pompeii and see the coast in a day!

  • A friend went on this tour over the winter holidays and loved it. This tour was my family's favorite day. The tour guides were knowledgeable and charming. The scenery was simply spectacular. I would highly recommend this tour and these guides!
