Tour Details

Leaving from the Amalfi Ferry Pier bright and early, this private tour will take you on a nine hour exploration of Pompeii, Sorrento, and Positano. A private driver will make this the easiest tour you can imagine.

The almost 2000 year old ruins of the city of Pompeii were excavated in the 18th century and remain wonderfully preserved to this day. Wander the ancient roads and alleys and peer through time into the windows of temples and villas of the ancient city. The bones of this once glorious city are still colorful with frescoed walls, mosaics, and even ancient graffiti, though some is still buried by the volcanic ash from the eruption in 79 AD.

After exploring the ancient ruins, you will move on to Sorrento to tour one of the jewels of the Amalfi Coast. Feast your eyes on the lush views of olive groves and vineyards, and smell the fragrant lemon and grapefruit trees that pepper the gardens tucked into the terraces of this uniquely beautiful town.

From there you'll head to Positano, the postcard-pretty town that rises along the cliffside, where houses are stacked like sun-bleached jewels above the stunning blue of the coastline. Sample local cuisine during lunch in Montepertuso, an enchanting hamlet that has a hilltop view from Praiano to Capri, the home of Mount Gambera where legend has it the Virgin Mary battled the Devil, leaving evidence in the scars and holes in the rocky mountain.

Lightweight summer clothing and light layers are recommended, with sweaters and jackets advised for evenings and cooler months. 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.

Bookings for this tour are available from March to November, with each tour lasting nine hours. Private tours for small and large groups are both available, using either luxurious Mercedes sedans or Mercedes vans. Whether it's a family vacation or a large group, party, or wedding excursion, expert local drivers will privately chauffeur you through Italy.

This tour includes an English-speaking driver, fuel, highway toll fees, and parking fees, but does not include entrance fees or tickets to local attractions or private guides. Food and beverages are not included in this tour, though there are times set aside for snack breaks and meals included in the day's schedule. Don't be afraid to ask your driver for suggestions of local restaurants and cafes that you may enjoy. At the end of this day long tour, your driver will return you to the Amalfi Ferry Pier.
