POMPEII TOURS FROM ROME.
Pompeii is a place like no other on earth, both intriguing and eerie, but also fascinating as a place frozen in time when it was quickly buried by the ash and flow of the 70 A.D. eruption of nearby Mt. Vesuvius. Because of the rapid burial, many of the town’s buildings, streets, artworks, and yes, even it’s people, many are preserved intact. You will feel like you just traveled back in time some 2,000 years and witnessing ancient Roman life firsthand.
Your friendly, professional local guide will make this visit even richer. We use only the best, and all are trained archaeologists. Most have personally worked on the Pompeii excavations, so you’ll get the best insights possible. Together, you’ll explore the best sites in Pompeii, the Roman Forum, the brothel, the world-famous plaster casts of the unfortunates that we unable to escape the wrath of the Volcano. You’ll get a real feel for what life was like here before, during, and after the eruption.

Our next stop is the beautiful seaside town of Positano via the Amalfi Coast highway, one of the most scenic drives in all of Italy. The road is narrow and winding, so we take only smaller, air-conditioned, luxury transports. Along with our small group, family atmosphere, our comfortable transports make seeing the Amalfi Coast a pure joy. Just sit back, relax, leave the driving to us, and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.
Your guide will fill you in on life in the beautiful region along the way. We’ll stop in the elegant town of Positano, a resort town perched on the cliffs with it’s romantic atmosphere and panoramic views out over the Mediterranean Sea! We’ll take the time to enjoy a nice leisurely lunch here, and you’ll have time to see the sites, explore its winding stairs and narrow streets, and peruse the upscale boutiques. You can order custom made sandals to fit your foot, or just relax and enjoy the cool breezes and fantastic views.
