Pompeii Day Trip from Rome
Your private driver from Italy’s Best will meet you at your accommodations, then your Amalfi Coast and Pompeii day trip begins! You will drive along the Highway of the Sun to reach Pompeii as your driver tells you about the sites you see along the way such us the Abbey of Cassino, a monastery dating back to 529 AD that wasa famous World War II battle site, as well as the domineering Mount Vesuvius itself. Upon arrival your private English-speaking guide will greet you and then lead you around Pompeii’s incredibly preserved ruins, where the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD instantaneously stopped life within this ancient Roman town. Next, enjoy a drive along the storied Amalfi Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1997 and have lunch in Positano, considered the gem of the coast for its vertical architecture built into the slopes of a steep cliff overlooking the magnificent emerald sea. The majolica-tiled dome of Santa Maria Assunta rises above the village while the town’s small centre is full of vibrant shops selling an array of local products: from Positano fashion clothing and colourful ceramics to the delicious local lemon cakes and world-renowned limoncello. After a few hours at your leisure, meet your driver for the return visit to Rome.
