Southern Italy forms the lower part of the Italian boot and has some of the best places to visit. It is also easily accessible for a day trip or a day tour from Rome. The region is home to world famous historical sites and unique landscapes which will keep you busy taking photos all day.
Without a doubt, the most famous historical site to visit is Pompeii. This World Heritage town which sits at the foot of Mt Vesuvius is unique in its preservation and is on the bucket list of every Indiana Jones who sets foot in Italy. You’ll get to walk the same paved streets and peer into the same frescoed houses that existed over 2000 years ago before the volcano erupted.
Then there is the UNESCO landscape of the Amalfi coastline. Have your phone ready because this is as scenic as Pompeii is historical. Imagine multi-colored villages clinging to the sides of cliffs. Our tours follow winding roads that twist through mountains with the sparkling sea always below you. You’ll get to wander through Sorrento which was the vacation spot of the Roman emperors. Spend time in the tiny fishing village of Positano and see how it has been transformed into a jet-setters paradise. Take the chance to explore the fairytale coastal village of Amalfi at the bottom of a deep ravine.
Our tours in this area were chosen because they are the best day trips you can take from Rome. Take a look at the details of each tour and you can decide which one suits you the best.
