After leaving from Rome going south, in a small group on a luxury minibus, our guide will take you on a visit of the UNESCO archaeological site of Pompeii, an ancient Roman city that was completely covered by the ashes from the volcanic eruption of the Vesuvius in 79 A.D., but reemerged from the excavations in a stunningly high degree of preservation. Visiting Pompeii represents an experience without equal in the entire world, any description of which still fails to capture the essence and the feeling of being catapulted back two thousand years. Walk the streets and the alleys, admire houses still standing, frescoes still looking almost as they were just painted, floors adorned with mosaics. It will be an emotional journey, visiting the Roman forum, then the ancient marketplaces and the shop buildings, hearing and learning about the florid life and thriving community, and its last tragic moments dramatically represented by the cast figures of the victims of the disaster.
After Pompeii, you will continue your tour enjoying some breathtaking views along the Mediterranean coast of Amalfi on the way to Positano, while our expert tour leader will speak about the local culture and history. Once in Positano, perched on the western end of the Gulf of Salerno, you’ll be able to take a charming walk up and down the narrow streets of this enchanting sea town, loved by many famous artists, exploring shops and small stores. Enjoy a full meal with local food and then take your time doing whatever suits you best, either more walking in search of the perfect view to snap some photos to remember the day or going for a swim in the sea.
A surprise awaits you on your way backto Rome!
