The Pompeii & Amalfi Coast Experience
While many tourists visit Rome for its own history and attractions, few visitors realize that it is possible to see several other important Italian destinations by venturing outside of Rome. This daylong driving tour combines two incredible experiences for a powerful contrast of the thriving villages on the Amalfi Coast and the desolate remains of the city of Pompeii. Your guide will take you from one location to another, pointing out the vast differences in lifestyle between Pompeii’s ancient civilization and Amalfi’s modern lifestyle.
With incredible cliffs and coastline, beautiful views of the Mediterranean Sea, and thirteen lovely villages along the shore, the Amalfi Coast offers a visual feast to its thousands of annual visitors. The magnificent beauty of the region was recognized with a UNESCO World Heritage designation, one of only four Italian sites awarded for their natural beauty.
Almost two thousand ago, the ancient city of Pompeii was frozen in time as volcanic ash from Mt. Vesuvius swept through the village and buried everything and everyone in its path. From the city’s walls to the haunting “death casts” of Pompeii’s deceased, you’ll see the ancient civilization exactly as it was when it ended in 97 AD. As you drive from Rome to Pompeii, your guide will point out the scars on the land that remain to this day from Mt. Vesuvius’ eruption; this powerful reminder demonstrates the scope of the damage caused by Vesuvius’ epic explosion.
The “Walk of the Gods”
While this all-day tour of the Amalfi Coast and Pompeii is a driving tour, you will also have the opportunity to experience Amalfi by foot; there’s no better way to take advantage of the jaw-dropping views offered by this world-famous caost. Your tour guide will take you along a stretch of the famous “Walk of the Gods” beginning in Positano, providing opportunities for pictures along the way.
