Private Pompeii & Amalfi Coast

Leaving from the cruise ship terminal in Salerno, this private tour will take you on a winding journey through the history of Pompeii and on the roads of the stunning Amalfi Coast. A driver will chauffeur you and your companions from site to site in comfort in your own private sedan or van. It's a luxurious way to see the beauty of Italy.

You'll leave the cruise ship terminal in Salerno bright and early, heading for Pompeii. In the shadow of Mount Vesuvius, you'll find the preserved ancient city of Pompeii, an archaeological and cultural treasure where the ghosts and echoes of history can still be seen and heard in the ruins of the ancient Roman city. You can wander two thousand-year-old roads and glimpse into the temples and villas of this ancient city. You will see everything from colorful, lively frescoes and mosaics to the ghostly, white stone people of the city, frozen in time forever. You'll have three hours to explore the history and culture of Italy in Pompeii before breaking for lunch.

After a lunch break, you will then hit the Coast Road, which wraps itself around the coastline and offers vistas that blur into the distant horizon and precarious views to the crashing waves below. Your views of the islands of Capri, Ischia, and Procida will make for beautiful photographs, as will the mythical vista of Mount Vesuvius.

You'll stop in Sorrento, famous for its lemons and a liqueur made from them called limoncello. The cliffs and the narrow roads that curve around and through them make for beautiful photos, as do the Marina Grande and Marina Piccolo, two ports that offer beautiful sea views.

Take joy in the continued beauty of the panoramic views of the coast as you pass through Praiano on your way to Amalfi, where colorful tiers of houses blend into tree-dappled cliffs that climb into the clouds. This city is dramatic in its beauty, sitting at the mouth of a ravine, almost plunging into the sea. The heart of the city is the Piazza Duomo, where Saint Andrew's Cathedral, with its Romanesque bell tower and brightly mosaiced Byzantine towers, sits gleaming at the top of a staircase.

From Amalfi you will travel through the Dragon's Valley, up to the hilltop town of Ravello, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Check out the view from Villa Rufolo or Villa Rufolo, which looks out over the bright blue sea, or visit the delightful and romantic Terrace of Infinity at Villa Cimbrone.

Please note that some terrain in Italy is uneven, and archaeological sites can be challenging for those who are not surefooted, so keep that in mind when booking your tour. Vehicles are accessible for a foldable wheelchair or walker.

5 StarsFantastic, Fabulous Day with Federica-World ToursJune 14, 2019

Reviewer: Carmen Bunker
We were a group of 5 and as soon as the shipped docked, Federica was waiting for us with a new, clean, comfortable minivan. We had Federica and the whole car to ourselves. We were able to get out of the port quicker than any of the HUGE buses trying to navigate the tiny roads of the Amalfi Coast. We got to see Positano, Sorrento and Pompeii. Whenever we wanted to stop, Federica was obliging. So we got to have a quick private tour of the Ceramiche Casola. Very interesting! Federica called ahead to ensure we had a table waiting for us in Pompeii at a local restaurant. While in Pompeii, Maria-Elena met us and took us on a tour of the ruins. We even got to see a local craftsman making Cameos. Everywhere we went it was crowded and busy, but I never felt rushed or worried about getting back to the ship on time. After doing the Amalfi Coast in a minivan, I would never dream of going on a huge tour bus with all of the people you'd have to continually wait for.Thanks for a great day!
