By far the most amazing tour guide this city has to offer. Beyond impressed.

Go on a guided trip from Rome to Pompeii to explore the ruins of the ancient Roman city, and drive along the picturesque Amalfi coast to arrive at the town of Sorrento. With convenient round-trip transfers and a small group of 18 people or less, travel comfortably and enjoy personalized attention from your guides.

Highway to the Ruins of Pompeii

Begin with a picturesque drive along the Autostrada del Sol or the highway to the sun, passing lemon tree orchards and idyllic towns. Upon arrival at Pompeii, bypass the queues with skip-the-line tickets and delve into the remarkably preserved remains of Pompeii. Your knowledgeable archaeologist guide will unveil the wonders of Roman civilization while recounting the catastrophic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. The 2000-year-old town is cloaked in volcanic ash that contributed to its preservation, and intriguing sites like the Villa of Mysteries have walls covered in frescoes depicting ancient tales. One is that of a girl being mysteriously inducted into an ancient cult.

Coastal Beauty at its Best

Your tour continues along the breathtaking Amalfi Coast towards Sorrento, passing by panoramas of the azure sea. Take pleasure in leisurely free time to wander the charming streets, savor local delicacies like creamy gelato or refreshing limoncello, and marvel at the awe-inspiring vistas of the Bay of Naples and the enchanting island of Capri. As the day draws to a close, drive back to Rome, cherishing the memories of your journey through the picturesque treasures of Pompeii and Sorrento.
