Discover World-Famous Ruins on Our Guided Pompeii Tours from Rome

Few places send shivers up your spine like Pompeii, the thriving Roman city frozen in time by the volcanic eruption of 79 A.D. The volcanic ash preserved Pompeii’s buildings, streets, mosaics, and frescoes, making Pompeii a site unlike any other in Italy: It’s a complete ancient city you can explore just as if it were 2,000 years ago!

You'll meet your tour leader and comfortable air-conditioned bus in Rome and head straight to Pompeii. Here your tour leader will hand you over to a certified Pompeii tour guide, carefully chosen from the ranks for their knowledge, enthusiasm and storytelling skills. All of our guides are passionate archaeologists and most have worked on the excavations themselves, so you can trust them to give you the inside scoop. Together you’ll explore the best of Pompeii, from the Roman Forum and the brothel to the world-famous plaster casts of those killed in the eruption. You'll even pay a special visit to Pompeii amphitheater, not visited on most Pompeii tours. Feel the site come to life with your guide’s dramatic stories and fascinating anecdotes about what life was like before and during the eruption.

Enjoy Italy's Most Scenic Drive

We time your visit to Pompeii to avoid the worst crowds, so either before or after your Pompeii tour, you'll head further south. Your tour leader will accompany you as you revel in the stunning views and exciting twists and turns of a panoramic drive down the Amalfi Coast. Along the way you’ll hear stories about life in this beautiful region of Italy and get some background about our next stop – lovely Positano. A pastel resort town perched on the cliffs, Positano is renowned for its romance and elegance.

Follow in the footsteps of Shelley, Goethe, Steinbeck, and the town’s myriad other famous visitors as you climb Positano’s winding staircases and explore its narrow streets. Poke into the upscale boutiques, order sandals made to fit your foot, bring a swimsuit and take a dip in the clear waters, or relax over a fresh fish lunch, all the while admiring unbeatable views.

Relax on a Hassle-Free Day Trip from Rome

From the moment you arrive at our meeting point in central Rome to when you return that evening, with a full stomach and head filled with vistas and history, we’ll take great care of you.

We’ve organized comfortable, air-conditioned transport in a small bus because larger buses are a nightmare on the winding Amalfi Coast roads. We’ve kept our groups small, with a maximum of only 16 people (often a lot fewer), so your tour will be intimate and you’ll get to know your whole group.

For your Pompeii tour we’ve arranged skip-the-line tickets so you won’t have to wait in long lines and, if it’s busy in Pompeii in the morning (as it sometimes can be with cruise ship arrivals) we’ll be flexible, reversing the order of your day trip to be sure that you’re getting the best experience.

The most important element of any tour though, is your guide, which is why we’ve spent years building a team of the best, most passionate, fun and enthusiastic tour leaders. So you can sit back, relax and enjoy yourself in the knowledge that you’re getting the best possible experience of southern Italy on our hassle-free day trips from Rome.

PLEASE NOTE: In low season (Nov - Mar), most of the businesses in Positano town close. During this time we will visit Sorrento town instead - another beautiful Amalfi Coast town where you will have ample choices for lunch and shopping.

Federico and our Pompeii guide (whose name sadly escapes me) were absolutely fantastic. They had energy and knowledge that far exceeded our expectations, so we learned a great deal, but at a good pace. In other words, although this was a very long tour, it was handled well from start to finish and my entire family was happy to have participated. To top it all off, Federico provided a Rome restaurant reservation that resulted in the best pizza I have had in my entire life.
