One of the best days out from Rome is a trip to Pompeii, the famous archaeological site. Once a town all of its own, it was covered in layers of ash and pumice following the disastrous eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. The area was literally frozen in time, with the scene still the exact same when Pompeii was rediscovered. You can visit Pompeii with us, accompanied by an English-speaking driver who will take you on the journey from Rome in a private, comfortable, air-conditioned minivan and in a small group up to 8 people.

When you arrive at Pompeii, take advantage of our Skip-the-Line access to the archaeological site - this means no waiting in line to get in and see the wonders of this remarkable place. With your expert archaeological tour guide, explore this open-air museum and discover what was left behind on that fateful day: shops, homes, even brothels as well as graffiti, artwork and so much more.

These ancient ruins are fascinating, and give such a well-preserved insight into what life was really like during the rule of ancient Rome. Your guide will show you the very best hidden gems here in Pompeii, and regale you with anecdotes from this fascinating city. Learn about the discoveries historians have made here over the years, glimpse the frescos on the walls of the villas, and follow in the footsteps of the ancient Romans…

From here, once you’ve had your fill of this remarkable ancient space, you’ll head to the breathtaking coastal town of Positano. Nestled on the beautiful Amalfi Coast, the town has stunning colorful houses, incredible sea views and a mountainous backdrop. You’ll have two hours of free time to enjoy as you please - snap some scenic photographs, grab some lunch, wander around the boutique shops and generally soak up the peaceful atmosphere.

Limoncello is a tasty treat in Italy, and Positano do it well. Included in your tour is a trip to a Limoncello shop in the town, complete with a Limoncello tasting - can you handle the mixture of tart and sweet?! You’ll then make your way back to Rome, having experienced some of the best of Italian history and a tasty lemon-flavored treat…
