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.

Worth every cent
September 28, 2022
My Amalfi drive and Pompeii excursion was well worth it. I enjoyed the small group(14people) and mini bus. 2 seater and solo seat. The drive was a long beautiful coastal drive. Got to stop to stretch and bathroom break (2x) didn’t know but had a boat cruise along the beautiful Amalfi coast. Our excellent bus driver, Giovanni then drove us to Pompeii and our tour guide Francisco did a quick informative tour of the city because we were getting short on time. A lot of walking about 16000 steps that day and plenty driving but all worth it.

Fantastic Tours of Pompeil and Amalfi Drive
September 25, 2022
This was one of the best tours my wife and I ever had. Our Tourr Guide and drive were greta. Our tour guide of the Amalfi Drive was extremly professional . My regrett is that I did not remember their names. The information that she gave was so informative. We could tell that she enjoyed her job. The driver would stop every once in a while to let us see the most amazing views. Our gude gave us time on our own but gave great directions and places too see. Then we went to Pompeli and met another giude. This guy was fantastic and extremly knowledgeable. The only regret was we ran out of time we could gave gone on for hours with this guy. This tour is a can't miss on your trip to this area. If we could we would give this 6 stars. We took this tour We will now only use Shore Excursions they are so much more professional than Trip advisora ndwe will never tour with Viator they are horrible do not use them. Our tour was on 9/4/2022.

Perfect bite sized experience that covered all!

The coach journey to positano included interesting glimpses of the volcano. The roads were good and we soon arrived to take our boat journey to Amalfi. A great way of getting there & viewing the coast whilst enjoying a leisurely cruise - a far cry from a hair-raising journey by road! We had enough private time in Amalfi to enjoy the main streets, enjoy lunch, and browse the church and shops, before heading back for our return boat trip. We then drove to Pompeii to enjoy a very quick visit that included the main sites, explained in full by our guide I would have enjoyed a longer trip here, but we hadn’t the time unfortunately. Nevertheless it was a fascinating delve back into ancient Italy and the devastating eruption of Vesuvius.

Amalfi is such a beatiful place
June 29, 2022
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.
