Exclusive Amalfi Coast Drive from Pompeii Day Tour

Departing from the Maritime Station cruise pier in groups of never more than 30 people, you will meet your guide and your driver, who take you on an approximately 45 minute drive along the road that follows the Bay of Naples towards Mount Vesuvius and the ancient City of Pompeii, which lies in its shadow. Ironically, one of the ancient world's worst disasters preserved time in Pompeii, where you will experience life as it was lived in 79 AD. Once a thriving empire, it was devastated by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD when 30 feet of volcanic ash and pumice stone covered the city.

Upon arrival in Pompeii, you will enter by one of its ancient gates, and a short walk will take you to the city's hub, the Forum. Surrounded by lavish temples and porticoes, you'll begin to grasp the lifestyle of the inhabitants. Admire the mansions and the art of wealthy patricians who moved to Pompeii to escape the turmoil of Rome; view countless paintings and inscriptions. See the streets with raised pavements on both sides and the stepping-stones that ensured pedestrians a safe crossing at intersections. Your guided visit to Pompeii is approximately two hours.

After your visit to Pompeii, sit back and enjoy an approximately 1.5 hour to 2 hour scenic driving tour along the Bay of Naples, and then over the mountain to the Amalfi Coast. You'll drive to the picturesque seaside resort of Amalfi, which lies at the mouth of a deep gorge. It is one of the most popular holiday resorts in Italy. As a sea power, Amalfi played an important role in the Middle Ages. It was part of the four Maritime Republics that included Venice, Genoa and Pisa. You will spend a total of about 2 hours in Amalfi, including approximately 1.5 hour of free time on your own to purchase lunch, shop, take photos, purchase an optional cruise along the coast, or stroll along the narrow streets to the Piazza del Duomo. From this square, a flight of 60 or more steps leads to the impressive Cathedral of St. Andrew. The interior of the church dates as far back as the 13th century with the highlight of the cathedral being the 11th century bronze doors from Constantinople.

At the appointed time, you will return for the 1.5 hour to 2 hour drive back to Naples.

Please Note: Crowds are to be expected at all sites and lines for certain attractions may exceed over one hour to enter. The tour itinerary may be reversed but will still cover the mentioned sights. Heavy traffic congestion should be anticipated and may affect the duration of the excursion. On select days or holidays, heavy delays in traffic may contribute to a change of itinerary at the operator's discretion. The scenic driving portion and free time in Amalfi are not guided or narrated. The entrance fee to Pompeii is included, and your tour of the ruins is guided. This Naples cruise tour does not include Sorrento.

Amalfi is such a beatiful place

We just came from Mediterranean cruise and had a good time with Andrea. First he showed us amalfi then we had a boat ride to Salerno where our bus met us to bring us to pompei. In pompei we had an enriching tour with matea. All in all this tour is on right pace and the weather cooperates with us.

We had a great time! The ferry ride along the Amalfi Coast was a wonderful surprise. One of my favorite excursions! If I had one complaint it would be the communication could have been better between our guide and the group. But he was young and new. Would do it again!

Excellent Tour. The bus ride from Naples through the Amalfi Coast and to Pompeii was great. The views were amazing! The stop at the Limoncello factory at Capri was a nice surprise. Lots of goodies there. Shopping in Naples was fun. Love the guitar and accordian music in the streets. Very delightful! The ride along the Amalfi Coast was breathtaking but the winding, narrow streets were a bit scary. We stopped and had free time were my husband and I shared an excellent pizza, then our guide had us board a water taxi where we met our bus driver to continue the tour to Pompeii. The Pompeii ruins was excellent!

One of our top excursions!!

Our family loved this excursion!! Very professional. Showed up on time and got us back to the ship on time. Our guide, Martin, was very knowledgeable and brought the city of Pompeii back to life for us. The Amalfi coast was amazing and our transport bus was very clean and comfortable. When offered a bottle of water, be prepared to pay a euro for it.

This was my favorite excursion on our Eastern Mediterranean cruise. The vehicle was air conditioned and comfortable. Our tour guide was amazing. First stop was at a cameo factory...amazing process. We had lunch at a cute café before heading to the ruins. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and we learned so much. My teenage kids had a wonderful time as well. Highly recommend this tour!
