Meet your friendly tour guide at the meeting point in Rome before boarding a small, comfortable, air condition bus chosen especially for navigating the troublesome roads of the coast without hassle. Head straight to Pompeii, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that draws visitors from all over. At this point, you tour guide will leave you in the capable hands of a certified, Pompeii tour guide, selected for this job specifically due to their knowledge of the site itself and their exceptional storytelling skills.
These skills will be put to use to transport you back to a time when Pompeii was a flourishing city in the Roman Empire, until the fateful day when the still active Mt Vesuvius erupted and left the city smothered in ash and poisonous fumes, but well preserved. Skip the queues at the archeological site to walk through the ruins as your guide tells you anecdotes from a different time. Visit the Roman Forum and the generally foregone Pompeii amphitheater after you see the plaster casts of those killed in the eruption, capturing every detail of their final moments.
After your visit, head south on a leisurely drive with your tour guide, revelling in stunning vistas as you follow the winding roads down the Amalfi Coast while your guide regales you with stories about this peaceful part of the country and about the next stop on your tour, the quaint town of Positano, situated on cliffs by the coast.
Positano has been visited by writers like Shelley, Goethe and Steinbeck, and you can walk the same narrow streets and climb the same narrow staircases as them. Stick your head into one of the upscale boutiques, maybe buy a pair of handmade sandals or dive into the aquamarine waters. You could even just keep it simple and admire the view while grabbing a bite to eat and relishing the day you’ve spent, embodying the ideal Italian life.
