About this tour
Make the most of your time and enjoy three of the most famous and beautiful sites in Italy in a single day trip from Rome. In a comfortable, air-conditioned coach you will be led by our dedicated and enthusiastic tour guide to discover the wonders of Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast, and Positano.
• Enjoy Skip-the-Line entry to Pompeii where an expert, English speaking, local guide will bring to life the ancient city as you wander the streets that have been frozen in time since the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius.
• Discover the beauty of the Amalfi Coast as you leisurely drive down to, arguably, the most beautiful seaside village in Italy, Positano. Here you can enjoy free time for an afternoon walk through the local shops, or simply sit back and soak in the views while sipping a limoncello.
With so many amazing sites around Italy to visit it can be difficult to decide how to spend your time. With our Pompeii, Amalfi Coast, and Positano day trip you can mark three sites off your list that are so incredible and awe-inspiring they are also UNESCO World Heritage sites.
Your enthusiastic tour guide, who will be with you throughout your journey, will meet you in the center of Rome at the start of the day. You will be escorted aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned minibus where you can sit back and relax as you escape the chaos of the Eternal City.
When you arrive in Pompeii our Skip-the-Line tickets to the ancient site will be much appreciated as you breeze past the long lines and enter into this time capsule of the ancient Roman world. Here you will meet your local, expert, English speaking guide who knows all the hidden corners and interesting tales that are waiting to be discovered inside. Visit the marvellously preserved ancient villas, public baths, restaurants, theatres, and maybe even a brothel, of the ancient world as the past comes to life through the insights and stories of your enthusiastic guide.
After some free time for a few last pictures and lunch the tour will continue further south along the picturesque seaside roads of the Amalfi Coast…where the Dolce Vita was born. Here your breath will be taken away by the spectacular coastlines as the mountains cascade into the sea and romantic villages climb up the mountains like grapevines.
The winding roads will lead you to one of the most beautiful seaside villages that the Amalfi Coast has to offer, Positano. Here you will have free time to explore the meandering streets lined with artisanal local shops or just sit back and enjoy the incredible view while sipping the local specialty, limoncello! Whichever you choose you will be sure to remember your afternoon in this jewel of a seaside village.
From the magical ancient city of Pompeii to the incredible natural landscape of the Amalfi Coast this day trip out of Rome is one that is sure to satisfy everyone!

About this tour
Save time and skip the long queues to visit the Vatican Museums, the largest collection of Catholic art. Learn a little more about the history of the museums and take a semi-private guided tour of the Raphael Rooms, the four famous rooms which contain Raphael's fundamental frescoes. Head to the Pine Courtyard, and admire the Fontana della Pigna or "The Pine Cone" an enormous bronze sculpture that once sprouted water.
Continue with a visit to the Pio Clementine Museum, which houses the private collection of Pope Julius II's Greek and Roman sculptures. No visit to the museums is complete without passing through the Gallery of Maps, the Gallery of Tapestries and the impressive Gallery of the Candelabra, home to the giant candelabra and impressive marble monuments.
Enter the Sistine Chapel and contemplate Michaelangelo's most famous frescoes, such as “The Last Judgement” and “The Creation of Adam”. Round off the tour as you step inside St. Peter's Basilica, with its breathtaking domed ceiling, that is not just an architectural marvel, but holds beautiful works of art; Michaelangelo's “La Pietà” “Baldachino” by Bernini and St. Peter's tomb, making it the most important church in Christianity.
Important Information - Restrictions may apply
