Enjoy a preview of the remarkable places in our Pompeii and Amalfi Coast Tour VIDEO:
Our first stop will be at the archaeological site of Pompeii, a former prosperous ancient Roman town that became entombed in volcanic mud when Mount Vesuvius erupted in 79 AD.
It wasn’t until about 1,500 years later that first excavations began in Pompeii, and excavations continue even now.
Pompeii existed even before it became a Roman city. It is believed to have been founded sometime in the 7th or 6th century BC by the legendary Osci, an Italic civilization that was once a rival of Rome. The root of the name Pompeii , "pompe", has been associated with the Oscan word for "five". In 80 BC, Pompeii became a colony of Rome as the Roman Republic expanded its territory.
The sudden eruption of the massive volcano killed the inhabitants of Pompeii and buried the city under tons of ash, thus preserving it for centuries.
Frozen in time, we get to see Pompeii how it was in its final monuments, its ell preserved artifacts and architecture offering detailed glimpses into this unfortunate ancient city.
Here you can walk in the footsteps of the ancient locals along the distressed cobblestone streets through the remarkable ruins of once impressive villas with vivid frescoes, apartment buildings, bars, workshops, and more.
To get the most out of your visit to Pompeii we recommend a local licensed guide whose expert knowledge and detailed narrative will enhance your experience and understanding of this captivating ancient city. You may e-mail us for more information on booking a licensed guide and pricing.
Please note that private licensed tour guides operate independently, and are paid separately. Please scroll down for more information, prices, and how to book your own privately guided tour of Pompeii.
From here we will drive to the splendid coast town of Sorrento for lunch at a local restaurant.
Sorrento is a lovely seaside town overlooking the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius in the distance. Renowned for excellent seafood, Sorrento makes an ideal place to stop for lunch and a stroll.
Sorrento will enchant you with its rustic warm-toned architecture, narrow lanes lined with an array of eye-catching shops.
Aside from its famous Limoncello, the delicious lemon liquor, in Sorrento you will find shops selling fine ceramics, delicate lacework, and beautiful marquetry. If you are interested in souvenir shopping, Sorrento should be on top of your list.
Our tour continues as we drive on the famous windy roads along the picturesque coast of Amalfi to the stunning beachside town of Positano that sits impressively on the slope of a hill. Positano offers a splendid walk on the beach, a stroll through its charming windy lanes lined with cafes, boutiques, artisan shops, and galleries.
Your private tour from Rome to Pompeii and Amalfi Coast concludes here. Your private driver will take you on a relaxing drive back to your hotel in Rome.

Reviews from our Customers
This has been the 13th year we have used Stefano Romecabs.. The continued high quality of service through the years has not changed. We have used them for transfers, and in many cases our plane has been delayed, they have always been there for pickups! Tours, with Romecabs have been always more than what we expected, and comes with a million memories. Hopefully we will return back to Italy soon and will "always" use Stefano Romecabs ~ Tony and Beverly
Fantastic tour from Rome to Pompeii and Amalfi Coast
Highly highly recommend Rome Cabs!! We used them March 2023 for a private day trip from Rome to Pompeii, Sorrento, and Positano all in one day. Michele was our driver and was everything we could ask for--friendly, knowledgeable, professional. We had considered one of the group tours, and this suited our family so much better.
